Sometimes movies are a reflection of the writers world views and opinions, and sometimes they aren’t. Regardless, it is interesting to see who is behind the upcoming Captain Marvel sequel.
Captain Marvel 2 — albeit confused story progression — has been confirmed. As a matter of fact, Disney have even hired someone to pen the script, someone who is “overwhelmingly passionate about the film’s message”. Who is she?
Did you know?
- Alita is taking a backseat to Captain Marvel.
- Disney want Kirsten Stewart as next queer Captain America.
Meet the Captain Marvel 2 writer, Kelly Sue DeConnick. She is an uber feminist, never Trumper, pro-Iranian and Islam activist… but most importantly… an avid comic book reader, massive nerd and passionate geek.
She may not be a seasoned screenwriter but what she lacks in experience she makes up for in passion. “Kelly is a champion for women rights, she embodies Captain Marvel,” an acquaintance of the writer told us.

Kelly Sue was also a prominent figurehead in the GamerGate, and the less heard of ComicsGate, movement who worked tirelessly along side Anita Sarkeesian to eradicate toxic masculinity from a male dominated videogame and comic book culture.
What is ComicsGate?
Essentially it is a feminist movement within the comic book community that started after a bunch of female Marvel staffers got together for a milkshake and posted a group selfie.
Then a bunch of trolls called them “fake geek girls”. They reacted by creating a militant feminist movement which purpose was to eradicate toxic masculinity from geek culture, specifically comic book culture.
Kelly Sue promises fans that Captain Marvel 2 will be the definitive female superhero flick and will bring light to the injustices that women working in geek culture suffer on a daily basis.
