The ladies of Marvel aren’t exactly pretty pin-up girls. Okay, so they are pretty. That is, more like fabulously gorgeous. But they’re so much more. They’re strong, fierce women and they’re totally taking over the superhero realm. And to prove just how amazingly awesome these “wonder women” are, Vanity Fair recently published a feature on Marvel — including plenty of the female superheroes. Even though the pics from the feature are getting major attention, they aren’t the only photos that people are noticing. When Marvel writer Craig Kyle posted a behind-the-scenes photo on Instagram and Twitter, it seriously stunned.
The photo features Zoe Saldana (Gamora from Guardians of the Galaxy), Tessa Thompson (Valkyrie from Thor: Ragnarok), Brie Larson (Captain Marvel from…um, Captain Marvel), Scarlett Johansson (Black Widow), Danai Gurira (Okoye from Black Panther), Karen Gillan (Nebula from Guardians of the Galaxy), Evangeline Lilly (Hope Pym from Ant-Man) and Pom Klementieff (Mantis from Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2).
The women may be dressed in their regular clothes (no superhero gear here), but they’re still total stars. That said, it’s not the ladies knock-out beauty that makes this photo stand out. It’s Kyle’s caption for the pic on Instagram that is making everyone take notice, “The coolest picture I have ever taken. #BadassLadiesOfMarvel.”
Oh, but it gets better. Kyle also posted the picture on Twitter. But this time he also posted, “I took this shot for my daughter and it’s the coolest picture I’ve ever taken!”
