The first Guardians of the Galaxy inspired some grumbling when fans realized that while merchandise featuring Star-Lord, Drax, Rocket, and Groot was plentiful, toys of Gamora seemed to be few and far in between. #WheresGamora started trending, as audiences called out the studio for giving its female hero the short shrift. Then Marvel seemingly repeated the exact same blunder a year later with Avengers: Age of Ultron, which gave rise to the #WheresBlackWidow hashtag. Even the Hulk got involved with that one.
So, as Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 looms on the horizon, has Marvel learned its lesson? During an on-set interview, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige addressed the #WheresBlackWidow and #WheresGamora campaigns, and discussed the efforts the company is making fto ensure its female characters are better represented in the merchandise going forward.

The Super Bowl is the perfect place for Marvel Studios to push the arrival of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 in just a few short months. Millions are watching, and the excitement surrounding the game makes for plenty of hype to be transferred over to one of the most anticipated blockbusters of 2017 (it’s certainly on my list, second only to Star Wars: The Last Jedi).
Thankfully, Marvel Studios brought one hell of a Guardians of the Galaxy 2 Super Bowl spot, one that probably overshadows the game itself for people like me who don’t really have an investment in the outcome one way or the other. There’s plenty of badass cosmic action, the humor we all love, a stellar soundtrack, and some great new footage from the sequel. Read More »
