marvel women

The future is female. Or at least, it could be, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige coyly suggested.

Demands for more female representation in the Marvel Cinematic Universe have dogged the movie studio since its inception, but it will still be another year before we see our first solo female Marvel superhero movie hit the big screen. Captain Marvel will hold the mantle of the MCU’s first female-led superhero movie, but could a whole slew of female-led Marvel movies be in our future?

fullmetal alchemist trailer

Anime adaptations haven’t gotten great press lately. As Hollywood mines the medium for gripping stories to bring to the big screen, the industry has inevitably gotten into hot water over casting. Specifically, whitewashing. Recent blockbusters like Death Note and Ghost in the Shell have faced outcry over taking the Japan-set stories of the original animes and transplanting them to America or a vaguely neo-Tokyo-inspired city.

miguel sapochnik interview

Over the past few years, Miguel Sapochnik has been directing some of the most exciting episodes on television. Sapochnik’s Game of Thrones episodes, “Hardhome” and “Battle of the Bastards,” are unforgettable and earned him a well-deserved Emmy. Before returning for the final season of that HBO series, the director (who has also helmed episodes of House and True Detective) worked on one of Netflix’s newest and biggest shows, Altered Carbon, an adaptation from showrunner Laeta Kalogridis (Shutter Island).

Sapochnik directed the first episode of the 10-episode science-fiction series, which gave him the opportunity to visualize the world 300 years into the future, shoot some brutal action, and help get the ball rolling on a noir mystery. In a recent email interview with Sapochnik, he told us about his approach to showing the future, why Blade Runner is so seminal to filmmakers, his favorite action directors, and more.
