Everyone experiences tragedy. Tim. Bruce…you and me. It’s not about the city. It’s about how you choose to see the world. Everything else is just an excuse.
I just want to point out, because I’ve been reading rumbling about this recently, that there is a reason that movies like Alien or Hunger Games do not bring about a sudden changes where people “realize” that movies starring women can make big bucks.
The problem is not realizing. The problem is not that the movie industry genuinely thinks a movie with a woman is more likely to tank by default. This assumption has been proven false over and over again.
The problem is not that there are no examples of women starring in successful movies in every genre. The problem is that the industry is sexist, and until there are more women at the helm it will not change. It will ignore, bury, misconstrue and excuse every success women have so it can keep focusing on and privileging men.
There’s a reason that women are far more likely to direct documentaries than feature films and that they are far more likely to be editors or producers rather than directors and writers. Because even when women do get into the film industry they’re pressured into roles with as little prestige and/or as little creative control as possible.
“While Carol Danvers has earned the title of Captain Marvel, Monica deserves full credit for serving the name first with valor, honor and integrity, both as a member and as leader of the Avengers. Her ability to transform herself into any form of electromagnetic energy might be extraordinary, but her real strengths come from her quick wit and level head. Whatever code name she goes by, she’s an asset to the Avengers.” – Andrew Wheeler

SO HERE FOR THIS
Carol/Jess Scifi AU:
When Col. Carol Danvers retired from the Air Force, she took a job working for the Government’s special security agency known as SHIELD. Tasked with recapturing a subversive hiding in the slums of Manhattan III, Carol realises she’s bitten off more than she can chew when she discovers the target is her old friend, Jessica Drew.
Or, at least, what’s left of her.
