Marvel Studios isn't.
They did to Avengers exactly what I've been hoping they *wouldn't* for the past 2-3 years: turn the movie into a sausagefest. Avengers has some truly great heroines on the roster, and many of them are obvious choices for the first film (*hint:* FOUNDING MEMBERS....*koff koff*). Instead, Widow winds up carrying the lone torch for the women.

It's sad and ironic, too, considering that they've got Joss Whedon at the helm. Joss has made a career out of creating strong, independent and interesting female leads; but he doesn't get to put any of that expertise to use here.


...They move like slick cotton on oil.
