Now I have recently been savaged for not fawning over the MCU's Captain marvel, apparently I hate women, they intimidate me, I am a virgin loser that
lives in my parents basement etc...
Why in the deepest darkest recesses of Zeus's butt hole do I have to be one or the other, Ripley from aliens, Princess leia, Jyn Erso, Sarah Connor,
these were all well written strong females that did exceptionally well at the box office in fact I would be willing to bet many of the people that
"hate women" because they do not like Captain Marvel liked the majority that I just listed off the top of my head.
In my misogynistic opinion the reason these other female character's were well liked came down to something they all had in common, they were
relatable, they made mistakes they were sorry when they screwed up they tried to improve so they didn't make those mistakes again.
Rey from the new star wars, captain marvel, they know everything right off the back rarely if ever make a mistake and can do anything better than
everybody without a single issue. (admittedly for Rey the biggest issue is probably the utterly horrific writing for episode 8)
Write me a strong relatable female lead with a good story and I will cheerfully pay to see it in the theaters, give me a mary sue, some shoddy cgi and
a weak story that is kind of all over the place and I will pass 10 times out of 10.
I have enjoyed the majority of the MCU movies, but after a decade of growing attached to the original avengers to see her swoop in save the day and
not even muss her hair... that will probably kill the MCU for me at least.
I wandered a lot so I will leave with this...
I can dislike a movie because of the premise, the writing, the cgi and probably a laundry list of things I am missing at the moment (allergies suck
oon a high pollen day) and have the lack of personality of the actor or actress, sexual orientation, or gender have zero bearing on my like or
