Not at all. Live action superhero shows have not been treated the same as female superhero movies. There have been many live action superhero shows that ranged from poor/cliche to proper/innovative treatment, there's been minimal superheroine movies to have that basis. The superheroine movies failed because of poor treatment and reception, while the shows just never kept an audience. Different argument.
