do action movies know they can have more than one female character

Do action movies know that the one female character they have doesn’t need to be violently in love with the shallow male lead

Also, apparently we’ve all decided that we’re all going through life like the most important part of The Winter Soldier wasn’t that Pierce referenced Mama Fury? Like we’re okay with the movie throwing out her existence and none of us picking that up? It’s not like we needed canonical confirmation that Nick Fury was in fact of woman born, but like…she’s real, guys. She was recently alive. She was probably a SHIELD agent in the Civil Rights Era and left her son with her dad for weeks on end as she worked some real Cold War shit. She probably tangled with the Winter Soldier once in go-go boots. She probably told her son to believe in heroes, but you gotta go looking for them. She probably should be fancast as Nichelle Nichols and featured with Grandpa Fury in a billion different fanworks because Mama fucking Fury, are you kidding me

There’re plenty musicals, where race doesn’t matter, but I’m totally against color-blind casting in POTO, Les Mis and other shows where it harms the historical authenticity.

Wow. Really on point there. I mean, it’s not as if France has been interacting with the African continent since the 8th century, ESPECIALLY not to the point where French is listed as an official language for several large countries. And as we know, there was absolutely NO cultural mingling between Africa and France, especially none where Africans were integrated into French society. And CERTAINLY not to the point of being of high historical, social, and political status. 
Hell, it’s not like there were any black artists of any kind in the 19th century.  The idea of black people being artists just hadn’t even been invented yet! And as we all know, there were absolutely no POC in the original Phantom of the Opera novel by Gaston Leroux, most definitely none that played major roles and altered the course of the plot. 
Good on you, OP. Truly you stand to uphold the gold standard of historical accuracy!


I think the point is that there wouldn’t be an African American constable in Revolutionary France. Good day.

Well of course there wouldn’t be an African American constable in Revolutionary France.
How silly.
He’d be French African, obviously.

Sigh. The only thing worse than a troll is a racist, ignorant troll.
Let’s talk about Le Fantôme de l’Opéra, the novel that ALW’s musical was based on, for a moment, shall we?
In Leroux’s novel, the Persian was obviously a person of color, that much is undeniable. So there goes the OP’s argument that there should be no people of color in Phantom. Despite the fact that the Persian was whitewashed in the musical and turned into a Caucasian Mme Giry (it is not clear whether she is Caucasian in the novel — see below), this does not erase the fact that Leroux didn’t intend for this character to be white.
So OP, stop making racist comments about the Phantom being played by a black actor, and start making legitimate complaints about how ALW’s musical does not represent the people of color in Leroux’s novel.
Next, Erik’s skin color in the novel and in the musical is not white or black — it is yellow (“Like yellow parchment is his skin…” etc.). So by the OP’s logic, only people with jaundice can play the role. Smh.
Finally, based on Gaston Leroux’s description, Meg Giry was a person of color — that is to say, she probably had African or Middle Eastern heritage (we don’t get a clear enough description of Mme Giry’s complexion to know whether this came from her side of the family, from her husband Jules’ side, or both).
Leroux writes: “la petite Giry, – des yeux pruneaux, des cheveux d’encre, un teint de bistre”
This means: “Little Giry — with prune-dark eyes, hair like ink, a brown complexion”
And yet, despite this clear description, this is how Meg Giry is portrayed in ALW’s musical:

Whitewashed much? If one wants to make the argument that the characters in the musical should be like their book counterparts, why isn’t Meg black?
So my advice to you, OP, is educate yourself before you go making racist and ignorant comments about topics that you clearly do not understand. Or if you do want to spout off like that, go talk to your friends offline and stop clogging up the Phandom with your hate.

Reblogging for the commentary, shaking my head in shame at OP.

Aclaremos esto! 

Si! Somos nosotros los de la foto del gato pero esa historia no es real, nosotros no la escribimos!
Afortunadamente la historia real es mucho mas feliz. Es por eso que decidimos subir esta foto de nuestras familias juntos, nuestros padres y hermanas. Tenemos familias que nos apoyan y nos aceptan. Es importante para nosotros que compartas la historia real detrás de esa foto porque es mucho mas poderosa y positiva que la falsa, y queremos esparcir el mensaje positivo de que todo siempre termina saliendo bien! No tenes q esconderles esto a tu familia, ellos solo necesitan tiempo para entenderlo. Mientras mas rápido se los digas mas rápido vas a dejar de sufrir y el proceso de aceptación va a comenzar mas rápido. 
Cariños a todos nuestros seguidores y por favor compartan la historia real y el mensaje positivo que queremos esparcir!

Reducing an out of context picture of strangers to inspiration porn is so dehumanizing.
