It may be hard to believe, but Comic-Con is very, very close — next month, in fact. And that means that we’ll be hearing a lot more about this year’s panels and special presentations in the weeks to come. After sitting out last year’s con, Marvel is returning to San Diego in July and it looks like they’re bringing at least a couple of their upcoming superhero releases to Hall H.

Slurs, Caricatures and Erasure: The State of Marvel Comics’ Treatment of Indigenous Characters

redwolf-feat

With the recent beginning of Ta-Nehisi Coates and Brian Stelfreeze’s Black Panther, and the ongoing success of non-white characters like Kamala Khan, Miles Morales and Sam Wilson at Marvel, the publisher is eager to present itself as a strong supporter of diversity. In fact, Ms. Marvel editor Sana Amanat appeared on Late Night with Seth Meyers in January and met with President Barack Obama at a White House event in March in her role as the company's director of content and character development.

Ironically, at the same time, I was considering dropping all the publisher’s books from my pull list entirely over the publisher’s current line-wide problems in the representation of indigenous people.

‘Doctor Strange’ Star Tilda Swinton Addresses ‘White-Washing’ Controversy

Marvel
Marvel

Doctor Strange is just one of a few projects that’s inspired a bit of controversy in recent weeks. Along with the first photo of Scarlett Johansson in the live-action adaptation of Ghost in the Shell (and subsequent rumors of some questionable VFX tests) and the predominantly white cast of Marvel’s Iron Fist series, Doctor Strange has similarly drawn ire for its casting of Tilda Swinton in the role of the Ancient One, a character that was originally Asian in the comic books. While those other controversies have yet to really be addressed, Queen Tilda herself is speaking on behalf of Doctor Strange. And when Queen Tilda speaks, we must listen — even if she doesn’t really have any answers to give.

For a certain contingency of fans, the casting of Scott Adkins in Doctor Strange was just as exciting as Mads Mikkelsen or Tilda Swinton was for everyone else. The action star and martial arts pro’s role in the film remains a mystery, and while neither Adkins nor Marvel have confirmed exactly who (or what) he’s playing in Doctor Strange, the actor has opened up just a little bit about his experience and what we can expect from the Sorcerer Supreme’s solo outing.

Love It Or Hate It? Benedict Cumberbatch’s ‘Doctor Strange’ Threads

strange-feat

A bunch of photos of Benedict Cumberbatch and pals filming Doctor Strange on the streets of New York arrived online this past weekend, offering us our first glimpse of some of the characters, including Chiwetel Ejiofor as Baron Mordo and Mads Mikkelsen as an unnamed villain.

The photos also offered our clearest look at Cumberbatch in his full Strange regalia, and while it's not a perfect reproduction of his famous Steve Ditko costume or any of its established variations, it's perhaps more faithfully comic-booky than most of us expected. So what do we think of Cumberstrange? Do we love it, or do we hate it?
