Abstract

Recently, with the rise of her economy, the status of women has changed partly. Industries begin to value the influence of females and consider the benefits of female consumption, film as well. By inculcating feminism by some women movements, films also have to be constantly reconsidered and renewed the significance of female roles. By this chance, female characters got the release, they are no longer under the gaze and judge of males or being marginalized in the whole film, they do have their own meanings and ideologies. Marvel, as the pioneer of superhero movies, also constantly explores and upgrades the value of female superheroes during its first decade and released Captain Marvel to join in feminism. But these changes seem superficial, females are still not out of the patriarchal system. This paper will compare the characteristics of four female superheroes in Marvel movies, so as to analyze female ideologies of Marvel films and discuss gender stereotypes through those female characters.
