i’m so angry that marvel still hasn’t made a black widow movie because too much time has passed. her movie should have been announced after the avengers and release scheduled for this year at the latest. really, she probably should have got it even sooner than that. because then it would have been the natural timing for it. people would see it in advertised and be like “oh yeah, that record breaking blockbuster she starred in came out last year, the avengers was amazing, no wonder she’s got her own movie” and go see it without questioning it in the same way they went to see thor2 and cap2.
but instead there’s been a clamouring for it and people literally begging for her to get her own movie and everyone knows that disney isn’t making it because she’s a female character. so when it’s finally released - if it’s finally released - everyone’s going to have in the back of their minds that disney was pressured into it and they didn’t really want to make it and it’s not just going to be another superhero film it’s going to be the superhero film that all female superheroes are judged against. EVERYONE is going to see that, not just disney producers and feminist critics. and you’ll have misogynistic bigots going “it’s pandering!” and the atmosphere will mar the release because the perfect time has passed all because marvel is too sexist to see a golden goose when it’s right under their nose.
