Hero at Nitehawk Cinema

Series Site

As hot shot fighter pilot and intergalactic jet-setter Carol Danvers makes her big screen debut in CAPTAIN MARVEL, co-directed by Anna Boden, she becomes the first woman to headline a film in the $17 billion Marvel Cinematic Universe. Nitehawk celebrates this change in the universe (and in the film industry) for International Women’s Month with our month-long series in March, HERO.

We honor the women in comic book and science-fiction genres who have kicked, clawed, shot and zapped their way onto the big screen with iconic performances from Pam Grier, Milla Jovovich, Charlize Theron, Sigourney Weaver, Pamela Anderson and more. From from the underbelly of 1970s Los Angeles all the way into the future and beyond, these are the women who represent what it means to be powerful.
