With intriguing columns about superheroine movies over the past months from io9 and Jezebel to USA Today and The BBC everyone is talking about this issue — that issue being “Where are all the Superheroines in Film?” Readers (or at least writers) cannot get enough of the topic.

It feels like we’re hitting a point of no return where the people will simply demand a supeheroine film come hell or high water.

So that’s nice of him. And yes, I just linked to Us Weekly. Deal with it.
