Likes to mess with stuffs.


I wonder if the success of the testosterone filled 'The Expendables' had anything to do with with it...nah.

Operative: "Its worse than you know..." Mal: "It usually is."


Sorry boys, it looks like all the 'eye candy' will be for the ladies. THX Haken!


Do not bother dragons, for you are crunchy and taste good with ketchup!

Well, he said one SUPER heroine - he also said there would still be plenty of other female characters, including possibly villains.

ZEEK


How long until Black Widow is elevated to the new star of Avengers? You know Joss is just itching to make girl power the focus.

I wouldn't hold my breath.

Even if he did really really really want to, just because he's the director doesn't mean he has final say on a project like this. He'd get shot down post-haste.

Maybe they just couldn't afford any others after Miss Johansen's salary was accounted for?
Plus, you know, having to sew around curvy bits is probably too hard or something.

Now a movie done by Joss with almost exclusively female superheros going out and kicking but while having good dialogue and a watchable plot..? THAT, my friends, I would be willing to see. And I'm a rapidly-approaching-middle-age female which is not the normal target audience of summer blockbusters.

Give me something worth watching and I will actually go. I'm bored, I have disposable income of some sort, and I HAVE NOTHING TO WATCH.

Well, the Avengers have always been kinda a sausage-fest. Aside from Black Widow, the only iconic ones are Wasp (who would kinda need either her own introductory move or a guest-spot in the Ant-man movie), the Scarlet Witch (who is a mutant and thus raises a lot of X-shaped questions), and Ms. Marvel (who makes no sense without bringing the Kree in [who in turn make no sense without the Skrulls and the Fantastic Four]). Given the whole point of this being a team-up movie (i.e., one where all the leads have already been introduced), Marvel would need to either squeeze out another movie or saddle Avengers with a continuity-heavy character-introduction.

Well, it's not like that isn't pretty much standard operating procedure for teams in general. You'd think males make up 80% of the population or something.

Weeelllll.....
Technically if mutations are carried on the X chromosome and the Y chromosome doesn't have a corresponding gene to block the expression of super powers (no matter how lame) then you are going to end up with a lot more males wearing spandex and capes...
But still.

Well, none of the Avengers (or any characters Marvel holds the film rights to) are mutants.
