Stephen Colbert Bring Up Real Issues With Marvel Films

The world of comic books has very colorful villains whether they be male or female. DC Comics (Batman, Superman) definitely has a plethora of amazing female villains such as Harley Quinn, Cheetah, Poison Ivy, etc. Marvel Comics, though, has definitely had tremendous success with its films, but as Stephen Colbert pointed out, these films are mostly, as he puts it, “a sausage fest.”

In their recent film, Captain America: Civil War, there are only two female heroes (Black Widow and Scarlet Witch). Through the 13 films they have made, there hasn’t been one movie led by a woman or had a female villain. Plus, there probably won’t be one for awhile either with Doctor Strange, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, and many others on the way.  There was also a report that in Iron Man 3 the original villain of the film was supposed to be female but the heads at Marvel Studios denied that., which is weird because there has only been two memorable villains that were actually scary/fantastic in the movie. Loki and Zemo from the new Captain America. So how about you change it up Marvel? Maybe make a villain a woman instead of a guy. Is that really going to be a huge issue?  I don’t think so.
