What a MARVEL!

What a MARVEL!

Marvel Studios want their films to “reflect audiences all over the globe that are cheering” their work. Though they are going big on diversity, they are yet to have a plus-size superhero or someone who doesn’t have an envious physique. But this might change “sooner than you think”, says Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige.

Chris Hemsworth, Brie Larson and Chris Evans are some of the Hollywood stars who have donned the superhero costume for Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). It’s not just their special skills or superpowers that fans across the world are in love with, but also their jaw-dropping figures. 

Would Marvel like to introduce superheroes who don’t possess the “perfect figure”, Feige said, “Yes, I would because then maybe I can be a superhero.” Superheroes generally come in figure-enhancing tights. Doesn’t he feel they are being stereotyped?

“Traditionally, if you look at the way they are drawn in the comics, they go to very iconic mythic proportions. We happen to have many actors and actresses who have mythic proportions themselves for real, but I will just say yes and perhaps sooner than you think,” he said. — IANS
