Okay, so this is something that has pissed me off to no end, being an Avengers fan (originally from the comics). IN EVERY COMIC I HAVE EVER SEEN, Maria Hill is NOT WHITE. For example:
Nope. Not a white girl. However, for some reason, Colbie Smulders (or however you spell it) was cast as Maria Hill in the movies.
I looked and looked, and I can’t find Maria’s actual ethnicity listed anywhere, which pisses me off a bit. However, I think from the examples posted above, it’s safe to say Maria? She’s not white. I don’t want to hazard a guess, because there’s no way of knowing exactly what her ethnicity is.
Anyhow, it really saddened and angered me, so I thought I’d do a little fan art. I was working with a limited amount of options with skin tone and facial shapes, etc, so I did the best I could. BUT at least in mine, you can see she’s a WoC like she is in the comics. I cannot tell you how badly that pissed me off in the movies. So yeah, I’m really getting sick of the bleach in every movie I watch.
(By the way, I know this is a little late on the Avengers train, but I checked back through your blog and didn’t see it in there.) So yeah, I’ve said my piece. Marvel: LAY OFF THE BLEACH.
Excellent submission.. FANTASTIC FAN ART…
