Teyonah Parris Explains Why She’s Glad For MCU’s ‘Progress’ In Representation

She thinks it’s important for all kids to have superheroes they can relate to.

Teyonah Parris of ‘The Marvels’ recently spoke to IGN and praised Marvel Cinematic Universe for changing. She believes that they are now proving heroes aren’t just one type of person.

Parris is really happy about this. She told IGN that there have been more stories about diversity and representation especially after MCU’s Phase 4 and 5. She says that this is good news for everyone who get to see a world where superheroes can look like anyone – including themselves:

“I am so grateful for that. I am excited that my child, this whole generation of younger people and also adults… I actually needed this sort of content in college. Right now in the MCU and in this superhero space, it has opened up so much to be more diverse and show that superheroes can look like any of us.”

Parris Reflects on Monica Rambeau’s Impact

‘The Marvels’ wasn’t just about fights and saving the world. Parris says that Monica shows everyone that Black female superheroes are possible and powerful:

“Just to see people who look like you, [or] who don’t look like you, be in situations that are familiar but are also quite extraordinary, and how they deal with those circumstances and trials that may come to them and watching them be human, they are super.”

But it wasn’t all smooth flying for ‘The Marvels.’ The movie didn’t make as much money as expected and received hate. Parris didn’t let this bring her down, though:

“I can’t say that I really felt the hate because we were in a very disconnected timeç I was surrounded by people who were excited for me, people who wanted and were waiting to see me and these other women get up here and kick butt. So I felt a lot of love.”

‘The Marvels’ director Nia DaCosta also made history as the first Black woman to direct an MCU film.
