I seriously don't get it -- from either side. I don't get how it promotes women's interests to re-write male characters for a woman... and I don't get why viewers are so against fictional characters as the opposite gender.

I quite liked the new Space Jam myself.
I might go back and rewatch Black Widow at some point but aye it was rather piss poor and severely hyped.
All the movies and shows as of late have seemed somewhat sub par all the same, lacking pizazz or im not quite sure what really.
It is not just gender. It is also race.
Even Liz Taylor playing Cleopatra is controversial.
Why? Cleopatra was Greek.
Others thought the actress' race should be unremarkable. As long as she could play the part, so be it. And I tend to agree with the latter.
Looking forward to the third season of Britannica and Dune which they will inevitable fluff up, so theirs that,
I admire your positivity in this i really do. And i say that as a mixed race person 50/50 black/white but i was raised to think for myself and not to blame everything on white people or anyone else for that matter. Not by my black father nor by my white mother. I was raised to respect others, where respect is due as i am also raised to stand up for myself where it is needed. In short, Be tolerant but do not tolerate everything.
As for the race switching with Anne Boleyn or even the Annie movie to me that is disrespecting a culture and its heritage. Which is why i brought up Shaka Zulu and made the example because that is how it would be seen and sold. As a disrespect to a culture. Now in my book you don't get to dictate such things onto others while pretending that it is ok to do for themselves. That is pure hypocrisy. Next to the fact that it is disrespecting.
Disrespect is disrespect but ok i say. If the woke want us to think that race and gender bending is ok then i vote for the next movie to be made about Adolph Hitler to feature a black Adolph and Eva Braun.
