Marvel Studios, and Marvel Comics In general, they have long been betting on the diversity of race, gender and beliefs in the cartoons of the comics and in the films they produce. The sheer number of Marvel characters has allowed the studio owned by Disney have a wide range of heroes and villains with whom to shape stories like that of Ms Marvel, a Muslim teenager with powers who becomes a heroine.
Often the diversity in Marvel It is usually news, either because it introduces characters with a certain sexual orientation or a certain skin color, or because a woman is in charge of a movie and directs it.
Kevin Feige, president of Marvel Studios, has been speaking with Variety about diversity at Marvel Studios in particular and in the film industry in general. The producer has been proud of the fact that diversity is becoming common at Marvel, although he believes there is still a long way to go.
Feige’s hope is that one day “first transgender character” or “first woman directing” news will be a thing of the past not only for the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but for the entire Hollywood film industry. The next Marvel Studios production to see the light will be Falcon and the Winter Soldier, which will arrive next week on Disney Plus with Anthony Mackie and Sebastian Stan as protagonists.
