Ms. Marvel Director Interview
The Film Weblog: There are people who consider the MCU is changing into the “M-She-U”, with all these females coming round, what do you say to love commenters like that?
Meera Menon: F**ok off! (Chuckles) Sorry. Can I say that? No, I’ll reply that query. I don’t even know what to say to these individuals. [The show is] not meant to alienate anybody. It’s not making an attempt to be political. It’s not making an attempt to be didactic. It’s making an attempt to inform the story of a younger lady…Your common form of teenage American life expertise. Her mother and father are placing restrictions on her and he or she’s coping with some parts which might be culturally particular.
On the finish of the day, I feel every thing she’s going by means of is so relatable to anybody which have mother and father that simply don’t perceive. I don’t actually see how her gender or her ethnicity or her faith or any of that stuff is the factor that makes her completely different. If something, it makes her extra the identical. It’s like that factor, “we have now extra in widespread than we do completely different.” I feel if individuals actually watch the present, they’ll see that. However I stand by my first response.
