It's a wonder, woman! Are female superheroes finally getting their due?
q's pop culture panel weighs in on the worthy, contentious, and mind-boggling stories from the week in arts and entertainment. Opinionated and irreverent, our panel takes pop culture seriously (but not too seriously).
Today's raucous commentators are Rad Simonpillai, Stephen Marche and Emily Keeler. Up for discussion:
- Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman. Brie Larson as Captain Marvel. Are female superheroes finally being upgraded from sexy sidekicks? And why has it taken so long for super women to star in their own films?
- Stranger Things are sweeping Netflix nation. Does the new sci-fi horror series deserve all the hype? Or its it just another example of overrated nostalgia?
- Bernie Sanders may be officially out of the running for U.S. president, but will his cultural influence live on?
