Millennial Voices: Marvel and Representation in Film

August 06, 2019

By: Olivia Baumhoer

I’ll start off by saying that I’m slightly biased when it comes to talking about superhero movies. I’ve been a Marvel fangirl ever since I stepped out of the theater in 2011 after seeing “Captain America: The First Avenger.” I obsessively followed the release of every movie and like many Marvel fans bawled my eyes out watching the credits of “Avengers: Endgame” as we said goodbye to the original cast of 6 that formed the Avengers back in 2012.
