Civil War Linkspam

I suppose it's no surprise that Captain America: Civil War has provoked a lot of debate on the Internet. As a card-carrying member of #TeamItsComplicated, I've found all kinds of food for thought on all sides of the issue, and so I share some of my favorites here. Expect spoilers from this point forward, in both the links themselves and my commentary on them.

Good news/bad news

Supergirl was renewed for season 2! Hooray! It will be airing on The CW, which seems like a better fit than CBS anyway.

Agent Carter has been cancelled! Boo! So much for my favorite show on television, by like a lot. Also reported today was news that the Bobbie Morse/Lance Hunter spin-off won't be moving forward, leaving Agents of SHIELD as the only Marvel show on ABC.

These two announcements came within hours of each other, so I experienced a bit of whiplash this afternoon. So disappointing. My dreams of a golden age for superhero ladies on television, shattered. Because of course we can't have more than one TV show about female superheroes of entirely different genres, tones, and target audiences. Meanwhile, we can have as many shows about white dudes who kill people but have lots of angsty manpain about it as we want. Goody.
