Not sure if this got posted already but its new to me! Talking to TooFab, Stan Lee talked about Marvel Films creating Inhumans film and a Black Panther film. Great news right?! I am not familiar with the Inhumans but I am excited for Black Panther. But then on the subject of a film with a female lead,
"The thing is, the women like these movies as much as the guys," he said. "So we don't have to knock ourselves out finding a female."
Thanks Stan the Man. I don't know how much power he has, though I kind of doubt he has much, but this attitude really isn't helping things. So at least there is the acknowledgement that women like super hero films. I guess that would be hard to ignore with the fandom. But because male super hero flicks are the only thing out there to enjoy it obviously is enough.
So we just to recap, we shouldn't make super hero films starring women cause super heroes are for men. And if women do enjoy superhero films, well they are paying to see the movies anyways so we shouldn't try to appeal to them the way we appeal to men.
