Tessa Thompson talks about her representation at the MCU


Tessa Thompson, the Valkyrie of the MCU itself, went around and stopped by Variety actors on actors. While discussing her role in the MCU, she touched on something that Marvel Studios has been criticized for: diversity and representation. Anthony Mackie, The Falcon, participated in the same show last week and shared his own comments on their diversity issues. Tessa Thompson has focused in particular on queer representation and the responsibility for fans of each race and sexual orientation to feel noticed and to be seen around the world on screen. Basically, she is the best. You can read Tessa Thompson’s comments below.

We don’t deserve Tessa Thompson

“The truth is that these films travel around the world in such a huge way, and if you can represent people of color, if you can represent people with disabilities, if you can represent the LGBTQIA community inside these films, it’s a big problem, “said Tessa Thompson. She added: “I think it’s really important for everyone, but for young people in particular, to be able to present themselves to these films and see projections of themselves. So I’m very excited to be able to continue pushing the boundaries of this and that I am able to do it with Valkyrie. Because there are so many cool queer characters in the comics, and they should have a place on the screen. ”

Like most of the others, I can’t wait to see what she does in the MCU in the future, and I’m also a great ambassador that Marvel Studios could hope to build, especially now that Chris Evans and Robert Downey Jr. are gone. You can take her out of Thor movies and offer her a franchise of her own Marvel, please and thank you.
