Re: The Twilight/Hunger Games demographic
I don't know about the USA but around here there are many male fans who enjoy Twilight, and most who went to see The Expendables 2 didn't go watch The Avengers, they liked old school action with guns, not super heroes fighting aliens and an entire hour of character development.
Major diference between Twilight and The Hunger Games is that THG is much better written, as is the main character and plot, Katniss has a society fighting for her? Not really, her acts inspired a revolution, and unlike with Bella, with Katniss actions have consequences. As the following movies will show she won't exactly have a sugar coated happy ending.
And Marvel has mostly caught this demographic already, their movies have a lot of female fans, Robert Downey Junior has captivated people, she has many fan girls due to his personality, So does Captain America for that matter, Thor obviously has Loki and Thor himself idn't that far behind in fangirls.
If anything it's in the comics that they need to get a bigger female audience.
