I was 9 when Supergirl came out, I loved it so damned much. I didn’t even care about the bad script back then because I walked out of that theatre believing I could fly.
Alyson L., comment on The Worst (and Least Awful) Female Superhero Movies According to Nostalgia Chick.
All I can say is a big THIS. Girls grew up wanting super powers just like the boys. They will enjoy your Batman, your Spider-Man, but having someone you can identify with closely is not to be underestimated. This is why Hollywood needs to start putting minds and money behind female-led comic book films. We will pay good money to believe we can fly.
Please reblog if you’re a lady who grew up loving superheroes. Or just reblog for reasons.
Yeah, that’s me.
