Episode Info: Sketching Comedy Presents:  Ms. Marvel On today’s show we discuss Ms. Marvel! You may recognize her  as the name of several fictional superheroes appearing in comic books published by Marvel Comics. But did you know that former President Obama is a huge fan? This week we took to Facebook Live and created a fun show for our viewers and listeners.  Our own, sketch comedians Imran and Phil are back live on the drawing boards.. so tune in to this special Sketching Comedy. Forget ‘Captain Marvel,’ What We Really Need Is A Ms. Marvel Movie – Movie Pilot Reports: It’s fair to say that the success of #WonderWoman has paved the way for other female superheroes to make their way to the big screen. With so many of their female characters being used by Sony and Fox ─ #Disney owned Marvel studios are pretty far behind in making badass female superhero films. However, the studio is planning to release their highly anticipated Captain Marvel film starring Brie Larson in 2019.

A Captain Marvel film, aside from putting more women in the forefront, really has no purpose. Carol Danvers is a beautiful, blonde superhero who’s inherently perfect and whose biggest problem in life is her quest for identity as a female Avenger. While all that is great, it still stands to reason that Ms. Marvel — who has always felt (and been) different — would be a much better role model for children. Ms. Marvel’s role in TV or films has been teased by veteran comicbook writer and ex-CCO of Marvel Entertainment Joe Quesada. By forgoing Ms. Marvel in favor of character with more sex appeal (and less personality), Marvel’s really missed an opportunity to showcase a vibrant, three-dimensional character unlike anything else on the screen. Still, until then, we can keep our fingers crossed that this brazen superhero somehow cameos in the upcoming Captain Marvel film.
