“Dude I gotta tell you the George Floyd incident in Minnesota hurt. I cried when I saw that video. It broke me down. The ‘knee on the neck’ is a metaphor for how the system so cavalierly holds black folks down, ignoring the cries for help. People don’t care.

"She started off being scared of people with powers, and almost had a snobbish attitude toward them, and an arrogance of her superiority in terms of intelligence and how maybe people with powers were shortcutting to a solution when she felt she'd earned the right to be able to solve a problem. But she has definitely warmed to the idea. But I do still think she's on the side of Iron Man and relying on scientific qualities, which include documenting, writing everything down, and making sure everything is nice and neat in its little box." Actress Ming-Na Wen reveals that her character, Melinda May, is also torn between both sides, but she wouldn't reveal which side May would ultimately side with.
