Peter Berg on the set of 'Battleship'

Quote of the Day: Joss Whedon on Hollywood’s Lack of Female Superheroes

Posted by Robin Paulson Categories: Action, Thrillers, Casting, Celeb News

Joss Whedon

"Toymakers will tell you they won’t sell enough, and movie people will point to the two terrible superheroine movies that were made and say, 'You see? It can’t be done.' It’s stupid, and I’m hoping The Hunger Games will lead to a paradigm shift. It’s frustrating to me that I don’t see anybody developing one of these movies. It actually pisses me off. My daughter watched The Avengers and was like, 'My favorite characters were the Black Widow and Maria Hill,' and I thought, 'Yeah, of course they were. I read a beautiful thing Junot Diaz wrote: 'If you want to make a human being into a monster, deny them, at the cultural level, any reflection of themselves.'"

- Buffy the Vampire Slayer creator and The Avengers director Joss Whedon shares his frustrations regarding the lack of women superheroes in today's films.

Quote of the Day: Carrie Fisher on Princess Leia in New Star Wars Films

Princess Leia

"Elderly. She’s in an intergalactic old folks' home [laughs]. I just think she would be just like she was before, only slower and less inclined to be up for the big battle...
