Minority report - What superhero movies get wrongMinority report

If comic book movies have been unkind to women, they've been even worse in attempting to incorporate any characters that aren't portrayed by jacked white guys named Chris. Yes, it's been pointed out online before, but it bears repeating: Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, and Chris Pratt have all had top-billing in Marvel's flicks. The only non-white superhero to headline his own movie is Marvel's Blade, who debuted in 1998 and whose last film came out in 2004. Since then, any attempts at diversity have been relegated to the wise mentor or "best friend" role with bracing regularity: Nick Fury, James "Rhodey" Rhodes as War Machine, and Sam Wilson as the Falcon. The arrival of Chadwick Bozeman's T'Challa cannot come soon enough. And even still, it will be one example in a sea of movies that stick to the already dated script preventing casting choices that reflect the make-up of the respective comics universes and the audiences that love them. Frankly, the characters and their audiences deserve better.
