Marvel's #GirlSquad Photo Is The Best Comic-Con Moment

There's Captain Marvel Brie Larson; Black Panther's Lupita Nyong'o and Danai Gurira; Spider-Man: Homecoming's Zendaya and Laura Harrier; Doctor Strange's Tilda Swinton and Rachel McAdams; and Guardians of the Galaxy's Zoe Saldana, Elizabeth Debicki, Karen Gillan, and Pom Klementieff. Avenger Scarlett Johansson, Jessica Jones star Krysten Ritter, and Ant-Man's Evangeline Lilly were absent from the gathering.

This is progress, but not quite victory yet in the long, slow war to get more women in front of (and behind) the camera in action films. For every Force Awakens celebration, there's a Ghostbusters backlash. And where is that Black Widow movie? 

Lovely progress here. Good job Marvel.
