↳ After years of an abusive childhood, Jim Kirk’s faith in the legal system dies after seeing his influential step-father walk free, even after his testimony. Ten years later, he leads a team of highly skilled criminals with the sole purpose of assuring that justice is done when everything else fails.
Janelle Monae “Q.U.E.E.N”
I absolutely cannot appropriately explain the myriad ways I find this song Black feminist in nature. So many. When Monae asks “Am I a sinner with my skirt on the ground?” To me, she is referencing the ways in which Black women are set up to be either queens or hos, no in between. We should understand, none of us are either or. We are human beings with individual sexualities, while also being intelligent, ambitious, talented, and loving.
I love the way Monae flies in the face of respectability politics. She often dresses covered up, which to some, makes her the “good girl” or the antithesis of say a Nicki Minaj or Rihanna. But if you listen to her lyrics you will hear she is not having any of your “good girl” nonsense. And having Erykah Badu sing “the booty don’t lie” is just the icing on the cake.
While I enjoy the entire song, I especially love her rap at the end, where she mentions heroic Black women of the past such as Nefertiti (yes, she was Black) and Harriet Tubman. They don’t come more Black feminist than Harriet Tubman.

JOHN CHO AS IRON MAN
JASON MOMOA AS THOR YES
this is actually great.
yes to all of these except nick fury, who is already played beautifully by samuel l. jackson.
OMG Santiago Cabrera as Bruce. *swoons*
(Also, in addition SLJ already being perfect as Fury, we’ve already got Rhodey played by both Terrence Howard and Don Cheadle.)
One I didn’t see (because he’s techically not part of the Avengers, but I think he ought to be here because he is part of Tony) is JARVIS. Idris Elba or Morgan Freeman as JARVIS, depending on what sort of inflections you think work best.
I’m not even in this fandom and I just came a little bit from reading this post
