who would have thought anyone would get sick of Rich White Man Saves the World: the sequel
I dunno if it’sa race/gender thing more that just new interesting movies?
Every Marvel movie, (at the moment,) is structured and (kind of) ends the same.
Why does not wanting ANOTHER iron man or Captain America have to be a “political” thing?
Basically: why only have/keep accepting m&m’s when you are aware of candy that already exists and is just as good, if not better?
(Note: I could also totally be wrong. And I’m not defending their use of only super attractive white dudes as the protagonists. Its gettin kinda drawn out.)
“I dunno if it’sa race/gender thing” says the white man
(note: yes, you are totally wrong)
I think you’re kinda missing my point. Yeahhh. I’m a middle class white guy. So, completely ignore what I have to say or whatever, but yeah.
I’m saying you’re right. Its disgusting that Hollywood still believes people are less likely to see a movie with a woman or a black dude kicking ass.
(My brother and I, for one, have had our fingers crossed for black panther the second iron man did well. And good god. That cast for exodus is. Horrendous.)
But yeah. Maybe its not the whole picture, ya know? I want more women in movies that are stupidly sexualized, (or for women like Gamora to actually have a character arc in Guardians 2.)
But I’m just saying maybe people are getting tired of those movies because the whole genre is STARTING to get stale, not just the whole racism thingy.
So yeah. It’s not well written out or anything, and keep rolling your eyes if you want.
But the point the original post is making is totally correct, theres just more than one reason I guess? (Although, yeah; the racism/sexism point is WAY more important.)
