Dream cast for an all-female Avengers!

Avengers Age of Ultron

Avengers: Age of Ultron is now in movie theatres across the U.S.  According to Forbes and IGN.com it was “the second-biggest opening weekend of all time.” I have not seen the movie, yet. (I’ll probably see it in the next few weeks when the crowds die down.) I have seen the first two installments and really enjoyed them. But what I really want to see are more female superheroes.

I’m not alone. More women are speaking out and Marvel Comics heard our pleas. Thor is now being portrayed as a woman in a new series of comics, which is outselling the male version by 30%!

Then I started thinking ALL the Avengers could use a little more estrogen power and strength.

Now who would play the live action all female Avengers? Below is a list of actors I think would be awesome as the Avengers based on prior shows, movies and popularity. I also tried to add a little more diversity to the cast and didn’t worry about age.

Thor – Charlize Theron

Iron Man – Viola Davis

Captain America – Milla Jovovich

Black Widow – Nishi Munshi

Hawkeye – Maggie Q

Ultron – Kathleen Turner’s voice

Nick Fury – Uzo Aduba

War Machine – Kerry Washington

Quicksilver – Liza Lapira

Scarlet Witch – Constance Wu

Maria Hill – America Ferrera

Heimdall – Taraji P. Henson

The Falcon – Gina Rodriguez

Vision – Rosario Dawson

Peggy Carter – Stana Katic

Last, but certainly not least, I think Meryl Streep should play the HULK. Yep, I said it. I think she could bring multiple layers to the roll and it would be awesome to see Meryl Streep Hulk-out!

Hulk – Meryl Streep

Do you agree with my choices? Let me know in the comments.

New York Comic Con 2013 – T-shirts Are Cool


New York Comic Con isn’t always about the costumes. Sometimes you can say a lot with just a T-Shirt.


NYCC 2013 was my very first Con. I didn’t know what to expect. I wasn’t sure if wearing a costume was an unwritten rule and I would be looked down upon because I didn’t wear a one.


I decided not to wear a costume. I’ve been to the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center and know the temperatures can vary depending on where you are and how many people are in the area. Also, I didn’t want to wrestle a costume during bathroom breaks. The stalls are teeny, tiny. I wore jeans and plain shirts.


When I arrived I saw tons of costumes but I also saw people in jeans and shirts just like me. I felt so much better. I also bought a few fun T-shirts to wear to next year’s Comic Con. Here are a few more fun T’s. Let me know which one is your favorite.


I was walking by a really long autograph line and this woman caught my eye because of the book she was reading (Huge Penis), the Doctor Who lunchbox and the red bow tie. No one should underestimate this woman. I bet she has a plethora of hidden talents.
