i wish they’d picked someone else to be natasha romanova. i wish they had casted wonder woman differently. i wish i didn’t have to feel shitty every time i show support for the cinematic versions of these characters because it feels like supporting the people playing them.
i want an amazing black widow movie. natasha romanova is such an important character to me, because she is about agency, about choosing for herself, about protecting other women. i want her stories, i want little girls to know about her and dress up as her because she’s their hero, i want it as much as anyone here. i want wonder woman to succeed; she’s one of the biggest characters in the comic book world, and deservedly so. and yet. yet.
i can't support this. some people want to separate the actresses from the characters they’re playing but i can’t. i can’t do that, i don’t have that luxury when the things they support are destroying so many lives and i’m just. i can’t.
