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

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.
