My Thoughts on Ant-Man

All right. So I am a nerdy lady. I pretty much always enjoy a good superhero flick. Despite the fact that Marvel continually puts out movies headed by straight, white dude, I continue to give them my money and I generally enjoy myself. Of course, I always hold out hope that they will step up their game and give us more character variety and better representation. But at this point, I know what I’m getting into when I go to see a Marvel Movie.

Ant Man was no exception. I knew going in that I was going to see a movie about Scott Lang (played by Paul Rudd), AKA another straight white dude, becoming a superhero. And it did just fine in that department.

SPOILERS AHEAD.

BUT here’s the thing. At this point, I know that the producers at Marvel have heard some of the demands for better female representation. So why they decided to introduce the character of Hope (played by Evangaline Lily), and make her fully capable of being The Wasp from the beginning of the movie, yet still sideline her in favor of Ant-Man is beyond me. They have every character, including her, repeatedly express that she just as qualified as Scott (no, WAY MORE qualified) to don the suit and be the hero. So why didn’t Marvel write a story where she could be the hero? Or at least put her on equal narrative footing with Ant-Man?

Within the first half hour of the movie it becomes clear that Dr. Pym’s reasons for bringing in Scott Lang, rather than permitting his already ass-kicking daughter to go ahead and kick some ass, are flimsy, sexist and just plain tired. I spent more of the movie fuming in my head, “If they end this movie without Hope becoming The Wasp, I will be so pissed,” than actually enjoying the rest of the movie.

And, in the end, we do see Dr. Pym showing Hope an updated Wasp suit and her apt response of, “About damn time.” It was a pretty awesome moment. But perhaps it felt so awesome because I’d been waiting for it and waiting for it and the credits had startws rolling and I thought perhaps they weren’t going to oblige. But after a moment’s reflection, I realized that this wasn’t quite enough for me. There was so much time in the film spent on this narrative: Hope was incredibly capable but not allowed to be the hero. She had superior fighting skills, she had the brain power and the know-how to control the ants with her mind and she was ready and willing to take the risk for herself. But she defers to her father over and over again, based on his belief that she must be protected. I’m not saying it doesn’t make good character sense the character of Hank Pym to want to prevent his daughter from undertaking a dangerous mission. I’m saying this isn’t a good enough reason why we, at this point in Marvel’s Cinematic Universe, couldn’t have a female driven superhero movie.

You know what I would have loved? If, at some point during the climax of the film, Hope had showed up in the Wasp suit and said, “Sorry Dad, I got tired of waiting for you to get over yourself. And guess what? I am bad ass enough to have looked over your plans and made an awesome suit all for myself because it turns out in addition to being a great fighter, I’ve also worked at an amazing science lab my whole friggin life.” I mean, she probably would have said it a little nicer than that, because I actually did like a lot of the father/daughter dynamics while they struggled to repair their relationship, but you get my point!

For a long time, we’ve deserved a female superhero movie. A little teaser during the end credits that Hope will eventually put on the suit is not good enough anymore. When a character is repeatedly acknowledged as stronger, smarter and better prepared than the hero of the film, yet is still not allowed to share the spotlight, it almost seems that the Powers That Be at Marvel are actively TRYING to piss us off.

My Lady - Robin Hood One Shot

Requested by anonymous

“What the hell?” you asked as an arrow flew pasted your head, incredibly close.

“My lady, are you alright?” You spun around and saw one of the newcomers to Storybrooke walking towards you, bow in hand.

“I’m fine,” you grumbled. “And I’m not your lady.” The handsome man chuckled heartily.

“No, you’re right, you’re not,” he said with a grin. “I only meant it out of respect, I’m sorry if I offended you.” You sighed and drew your attention to his bow.

“Why did you shoot an arrow at me?” You asked incredulously.

“I was trying to shoot it at you. Well I was, but I didn’t think it was you. I am out looking for the witch Zelena, and I thought you may be her.”

“Well I don’t have green skin,” you stated bitterly.

“No, I can see that,” he said taking a moment to look at you.

“What’s your name?” You asked after an awkward silence.

“Robin Hood, my lady.” You groaned at his use of “my lady” again. “Sorry.”

“Wait, Robin Hood? Like the famous thief?” You asked with a laugh.

“The one and only,” he said with a mocking now, causing you to giggle.

“Well, as much as I enjoy talking to my attempted murderer, I do actually have a place to be,” you said as you turned. Robin grabbed your arm to turn you back around.

“My lady,” he said, smiling at your eye roll. “I am truly sorry about earlier.”

“Right,” you said with a nod. “Well thank you.” At that, you walked away from the handsome thief and got into your car.

“Who was that?” Ruby asked as you climbed in next to her.

“Nobody,” you said as you drove off.

————————————————————————-

“I hate this job,” you said to Ruby as you walked past her, delivering the waffles to your customer. You had started working at Granny’s diner about two months ago, because they needed more help.

“Well, don’t hate it yet,” Ruby said, motioning towards the door. Robin was walking through the door with a few of his friends. “I’ll let you get that one,” she said with a smirk, escaping back into the kitchen.

“Welcome to Granny’s, what can I get for you?” you asked as you walked up.

“My lady,” he said with a grin when he saw you.

“I have a name, you know,” you said with an equal grin.

“You never told me so I’m forced to call you, my lady.”

“Y/N. What can I get for you?”

“Well, Y/N,” he said, emphasizing your name. “I will take a coffee, please.” You took the rest of their orders, and escaped into the kitchen.

“I hope that’s his number, and not just his order,” Ruby said as you walked in. Granny laughed and took the slip or paper from you.

“It’s just his order,” she said as she began cooking.

“If you don’t get his number,” she said with a smirk. “I will.” You rolled your eyes.

“I- I can get his number. If I wanted to, which I don’t,” you stumbled. Ruby and Granny laughed.

“Okay, fine, I’ll do it right now,” you said exiting the kitchen.

“Robin,” you said as you walked up. “Can we talk?” The thief smiled and stood up, following you.

“Before you say anything, there’s something I’d like to ask you, my lady. Would you like to go on a date with me?”

“Wait, what? You’re asking me out?” you asked dumbfounded. Robin looked a little bit hurt. “Sorry, but I’d, I’d love to,” you said. The handsome thief smiled and returned into the diner. Ruby walked out just as he came inside and smiled at you.

“So?” she asked with a raise of her eyebrow.

“So,” you said with a grin. “We’re going on a date,” you said walking back into the diner.

“It’s about time, you haven’t had a date in months.”

toothpast asked:

I was on the magic mike tag and I found u and the movie was actually pretty good right? Like I expected some basic fifty shades quality mysoginistic junk but I was really surprised. Turns out it was pretty hot, it didn't have an unnecessary romantic subplot, and it wasn't mysoginistic at all, cause it's all about treating ladies right. Man I never thought that this would be my fav movie of 2015, but I REALLY LIKE THIS MOVIE

Yes it was actually really really good! I completely agree toothpast!

I don’t even know what’s going on, there are big budget movies like Age of Ultron or Jurrasic World that barely pass the Bechdel test and are kinda sexist and do everything to force women into romantic subplots.

And then suddenly there are movies like Mad Max: Fury Road with all these amazing female characters and the complete absence of romantic subplots, and Magic Mike XXL - a comedy about STRIPPERS! - where women talk about how beautiful other women are, and men talk about how important it is to ask women what they want and to treasure them, and with scenes that don’t mock or ridicule or shame women for enjoying hot naked strippers. 

Like … what’s going on?

The music you like says a lot about you so put your phone on shuffle and write down the first ten songs without skipping. Then tag ten people. If you wanna do it, go for it :D :D :D
