Get your first look at Paul Rudd as Scott Lang in Marvel’s “Ant-Man,” now in production in San Francisco and in theaters July 17, 2015!
I have never been this unexcited for set pics :-/
Without Janet, why the fuck even bother with this movie?
I… Cannot bring myself to care. At all.
I have seen every Marvel movie multiple times in theaters. Want to know how many times I saw Avengers. Marvel?
Thirteen times. My friends and I had a contest, it was a JOKE. ”How many times have you seen Avengers?” Not ‘if.’ ’How many times?’
We’re all female, Marvel. We’re girls. And we weren’t really psyched by the lack of female characters you gave us, but you know what? We were reassured by the ones you did. We dealt. We tolerated. We waited patiently.
And when you announced Ant-Man, I told myself, at least we’ll get Jan. Jan, who was one of the BEST parts of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes. Jan, the funny, sassy, fashion obsessed, girly-girl who wanted to be a hero, who didn’t need someone’s death to motivate her, who didn’t need someone to suffer for her to want to do what’s right.
Janet Van Dyne, who gave the Avengers their name. I told myself, it would be worth it. For Jan.
And then you pulled this.
I will not see Ant-Man. I will not blog about your dumb ‘white boy pain’ movie. You fridged one of the most iconic female super heroes in your canon, off-screen, to further manpain.
40+% of your audience for “Guardians of the Galaxy” was women. And girls. Little girls like my nieces, who deserve heroes of their own. How sad that you’re determined not to give them to us.
Boycott Ant-Man. That’s my tag. Boycott Ant-Man. Until we get Carol. And Jennifer. And Heather. And Misty. And Angela. Until we get Monica. And Patsy. And Greer. Until we get Sersi. And Jessica. And Kate. And America.
Until we get females in your movies that aren’t killed to further a man’s path to heroism, because why else would we want to do the right thing?
Until we get Jan.
