  1. Re: Stuntwomen of the MCU–That moment when I realize that the crushes I developed on Scarlett Johannsen and Brie Larsen after watching and rewatching their fight scenes are really crushes on a pair of totally badass sisters. That fight scene in Iron Man 2 was the best part of that movie and the only part I have bothered to rewatch, and of course I still have a crush on Brie Larsen because Captain Marvel was so phenomenal and also she was amazing and patriarchy-crushing in every interview and on twitter, but damn, I am so glad to know this now. Brb, gonna go watch some fight scenes and swoon some more.
