Marvel Movies vs The Bechdel Test

by Admin on Dec 6, 2013 in Webcomics Guide

The good old Bechdel Test has been popping up in the news fairly frequently recently, not least thanks to a few plucky Swedish cinemas, and now Geek Syndicate have put the first phase of recent Marvel movies to the test.

Sif Cat Collins of Geeky Girls Love Sci-Fi has written a piece in the latest Geek Syndicate magazine that focuses on the Iron Man trilogy, the two Thor films, The Incredible Hulk, Captain America, and The Avengers.

Collins also gives a brief overview of the test itself – namely what it is exactly, why it’s important, and why it doesn’t tell the full story but remains a useful tool.

Using the test as a tool to show general trends is a particular interest of mine, (particularly when coupled with the Reverse Bechdel Test) and one I hope to find the time to return to on a larger scale.

Anyway, go read! Collins’ article starts on page 56, and the whole magazine is definitely worth a read.
