Are people ACTUALLY stating that they are going to boycott Agent Carter because of the Jan news?
Gosh. What priorities.
I mean, the logical and reasonable thing to do would be to boycott AGE OF ULTRON or Ant Man OR ANY OF THE DUDE FILMS THAT YOU KEEP SUPPORTING WHEN YOU LOL ABOUT CHRIS EVANS GRABBING BOOBS
But yo, I guess that would actually require you to back up your rage in a logical way and not in a way that contributes to the idea that female heroes aren’t going to be successful in the eyes of Marvel.
If you ever think the solution to a problem is “boycott the work with a female lead” or “boycott the work with a POC lead,” chances are good that you are fucking clueless. Yet people in Marvel fandom keep doing this shit.
PS: Jan has been written out of the MCU for a long goddamn time. Where the fuck have you people been? Oh, that’s right. You’ve been enjoying Iron Man. Captain America. Thor. And the original film that write her out of the MCU so that you could look at Renner’s pretty arms and Tony Stark’s out of control ego. In fact, boycotting the Avengers: Age of Ultron makes perfect sense because Whedon actually was going to include her in the Avengers, but didn’t because he couldn’t take time away from The Story of Tony Stark’s Importance, and so now we are here.
But lol, you boycott Agent Carter, you fucking asshole.
I don’t know if you say it in the US, but here we’d say they were cutting off their nose just to spite their own face. I can’t believe that was people’s actual reaction.
Comics fandom, why must so many of you disappoint so often?
