Those stories are escapism for women in the same way that superhero comics with their fantasies of exaggerated physical prowess and perfection are escapism for males. Women just tend to like some romance with their tales of heroic action.

It’s something that’s easy to take for granted, growing up in the United States as a white male, that my cinematic heroes look like me...It’s something that over the course of these ten years, having a certain amount of power over what type of movies are made and what type of actors we hire, I want everybody to have that feeling. We don’t take it for granted that people want to see themselves reflected in our heroes and our characters.
