While we didn’t actually make it in to see this panel because the room filled with fans, we are grateful that C2E2’s new livestream has made it possible for us to see the panel after the fact. MARVEL’s Agent Carter and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. are not shows that we have actively covered, but we wanted to see this panel none the less because the role of strong women in sci-fi, and now series based on comics, are of great interest to us. The way female characters are portrayed can have an impact on how their female fans are viewed. Join Hayley Atwell and Ming-Na Wen as they talk about what it is like to be strong female characters in a male-dominated genre.
Note: The embedded video is actually over seven hours long, but the first hour is comprised of the Kick-ass Women of S.H.I.E.L.D. panel. Also, this video is likely to be available for a limited time, so watch it now before it’s gone!
