Sorry this ask has taken me so long. I have been really thinking on this ask. It’s really hard to get excited when you have been let down so much, I know. And the best answer I have is this: don’t think about the bad stuff, like MCU doing a bad job at female/poc rep (btw Civil War isn’t confirmed yet so hold on to that!) or Zack Snyder working on three WW-related movies. Think about how the WW, Cyborg, and Shazam movies haven’t had writers/directors announced yet, so we could get really good writers/directors. Think about how Stan Lee has said MCU is developing a Black Panther movie and how now that their main Superhero film rivals have slated comic movies with POC and Women as leads, the Disney/Marvel studios are going to start feeling the pressure to do the same. Also don’t forget they have a bunch of slotted movies they haven’t announced the titles of yet, so its possible they are planning a female-led or poc-led movie and haven’t announced it as yet. I know it is REALLY REALLY hard to stay positive and hopeful when we have been constantly fucked over by this community (especially by the studios and the publishers), but thinking positivelty is the only way I see to keep up my positivity and stay excited. It may not work for you (which is totally valid, we shouldn’t HAVE to stop thinking about the bad stuff like Zack Snyder being in charge of movies involving Wonder Woman), but I hope I kind of helped?
I don’t get it. I’m really really really frustrated. Like it’s one thing to not dig Man of Steel for whatever reason, but to send an ask to a tumblr named “comicbookmisogyny” bitching about the team behind Man of Steel, straight up the most purely feminist comic book movie I have ever seen, being in charge of Wonder Woman. This is not objectively bad news. I mean, they released the costume, which is beautiful, real, and respectful as fuck, I just- like what is the problem here? There are potential land mines everywhere, there would have been no matter who makes this movie, but there’s nothing as of yet to indicate that Zachary Snyder or anyone else associated with the project has conclusively stepped on one. So I guess I’m going to need some elaboration on the whole “I’m pissed because the MoS team is using Wonder Woman in THREE movies.”
