Fans are taking ‘Where’s Gamora?’ into their own hands

As many frustrated fans have pointed out online, much of the official Guardians of the Galaxy merchandise leaves out Gamora, one of the movie’s five titular Guardians, played by Zoe Saldana. Though Gamora has an equal amount of screen time as her male colleagues, and Saldana is second-billed after Chris Pratt, Gamora is mysteriously absent in some egregious ways.

Unfortunately, this is nothing new

This missing-Gamora bullshit makes me SO. MAD. “It’s a boy’s shirt so it can’t have a girl on it” ah yes, boys cannot wear something with a ladybody on it, that would turn them gay or something.

Hey, I wonder what the girls’ shirt for Guardians of the Galaxy looks like? OH WAIT HAHA THERE ISN’T ONE. In fact, a number of their licenses — Lego, Captain America, Star Wars, Ninjago, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Transformers, X-Men — only appear on boys’ clothing.

I do not envy the challenge for parents who want their kids to have gender-neutral clothing.

now that you mention it, I bought my son Avengers underwear and I think it’s got every single hero on it except Black Widow. Shit.

CINEMATIC MILES MORALES COSPLAY

Yo! My name is Nikolas A. Draper-Ivey…This is cosplay as Cinematic Miles Morales: The Ultimate Spider Man. This suit was made by 
Jesse Covington ( Writer and Costume Designer) and sewn by Sasha Williams ( Fashion Major graduate). Photos were taken by Pierre BL Brevard I specifically would like to thank Marvel Comics Artist Sara Pichelli for designing this character. I’m also very excited to see Olivier Coipel's work on Spider-Verse!

(Full shoot will be shot in New York itself just in time for NYCC)

These are all beautiful, and some of them look like they could be Alex Ross paintings, love love love these.

MILLEESS!!! <333333333333333333333333

ok I grew up with red & blue Spider-Man but every variant I see on the costume lately looks G-R-E-A-T.

When I first got this role I just cried like a baby because I was like, “Wow, next Halloween, I’m gonna open the door and there’s gonna be a little kid dressed as the Falcon.” That’s the thing that always gets me. I feel like everybody deserves that. I feel like there should be a Latino superhero. Scarlett [Johansson] does great representation for all the other girls, but there should be a Wonder Woman movie. I don’t care if they make 20 bucks, if there’s a movie you’re gonna lose money on, make it Wonder Woman. You know what I mean, ’cause little girls deserve that. There’s so many of these little people out here doing awful things for money in the world of being famous. And little girls see that. They should have the opposite spectrum of that to look up to.

this guy is rapidly ascending my list of COOL PEOPLE

"One of the earliest things my son noticed—he said, “I want to be Spiderman and I want to be light skinned so I can do all the things Spiderman does.” I was in shock. I immediately started googling things for him to see, other super heroes. And Black Panther was one of those for me, which is why I was happy to voice the character in the “Black Panther” animation for BET."

Djimon Hounsou on race and superheroes

Because representation matters. If a little boy sees nothing but white heroes, if a little girl sees nothing but men coming to rescue women, it affects how they see the world and themselves.

and if you hear stories like this and still complain about “forced diversity" or "enforced diversity" or write it all off as "political correctness" you are willfully ignoring the reality of people with less privilege than yourself. And that’s awful.

Just think about that moment when Captain America said “It appears to run on some sort of electricity” and everyone was reminded that airplanes were only 17 years old when Rogers was born.

that line does not get enough credit. it’s one of my favorites in the film.

Cap’s not being sarcastic, he wants to help. But everything he sees on that ship and everything Tony is talking about is completely alien to him.

so when he says that, it’s sincere and funny at the same time
