Why the MABLOSE criticism of alleged "sexism" of the movie does not apply

The second movie around the hero team "Avengers" From Marvel offers reason for criticism. But this sparks on something that is not too short.

Anyone who has the Marvel Universe there is no lack of all things in one thing: strong women’s figures. Those who are currently providing for films of the popular comics from Marvel can insofar with the full shuffle, whether they move in the universe of the X-Men, the Racher / Avengers, the Fantastic Four or Guardians of the Galaxy. The previous films not only wait with strong women – often even the overall action revolves around them.

At the Fruhen X-Men films, Jean Gray (Phoenix), Storm (Ororo Munroe) and Rogue (Marie), the central roles were revenue. On the side of the enemies brilliantly brilliant mystique (Raven Darkholme), followed by the side change Jean Gray. Jean Gray was also the central person of the total plot. Your transformation to the dark Phoenix was (next to the love triangle Wolverine-Cyclopy-Jean-Gray) elemental for the three-part.

The newer films waived Jean Gray – they focused on the development of Professor Xaviers. However, this did not mean a waiver of a strong woman: with Mystique (Mutantin waking up with Charles Xavier), Emma Frost and Shadowcat (Kitty Pryde) were in the two parts so far (X-Men: First Class, X-Men: Days of Future Past) new women’s figures that were again in the center of the action – especially at Days of Future Past. This ridge was completed by Blink (Clarice Ferguson).

But also in the universe of the Avengers and have strong women their permanent place. Already in the first three Iron-Man films, Pepper Potts, played by Gwynneth Paltrow, was more than just teasing beiwerk for Tony "Iron man" Strong. She fears several functions here – for one thing she was the secretarin / assistant in which Tony falls in love, on the other hand, which always brings him back to the ground of the facts, which guides him and offers him the forehead. But even in combat situations, she was more than just the breeding Maid in notes, which showed particularly in the third part when she saved the Iron Man.

Already in the second part of the Iron Man Trilogy, another important woman in the Avengers universe should come: Natasha Romanov (Black Widow), Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D.. In the third Iron-Man part she made room for the scientist Maya Hansen. For this their role was continuously expanded. In the two Avengers films, their figure was to be seen in many scenes and created multi-layered: It was not only chunkferin and spy, but also consultant, could in Captain America 2. The Winter Soldier to take the second main role and for the rescue of the world at the end to a rough part contribute to a rough part. In the first part with Peggy Carter had also been introduced an important women’s figure, which has received their own series.

But just at the figure of Black Widow, however, has become a discussion that makes it necessary to illuminate the importance of the Black Widow in the various marvel films. Because unlike in the previous films, the criticism is, the Black Widow has too few appearances in the new Avengers movie. And character it was drawn to Dunn.

Without responding to your role in the movie, however, see that the Black Widow in "Avengers 2: Age of Ultron" not only continues with at the foremost front, but has to take as many tasks that it is surprised. Nonetheless, she is not dedicated as much time as in the first movie, which has two reasons:

On the one hand, the actress of the Black Widow, Scarlett Johansson, at the time of filming Hochschregan. Your role was taken from up to six different actresses. Some too strong action scene therefore had to be dispensed with.

Second "Age of Ultron" with the "Scarlet Witch" (Wanda Maxussoff) equal to the next woman in the middle of the action. It transforms from the enemy to the partner and is in "Age of Ultron" with the most important person at all, because it brings the entire plot around the artificial intelligence Ultron first.

With Maria Hill (played by Cobie Smulders), a third important women’s figure was also introduced, which are already in "Winter Soldier" was part of the game and in the series Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D next to Daisy "Skye" Johnson and Melinda May once again providing the importance of strong women at Marvel.

But some commentators was not enough – they saw the changing of the Screen Time for the Black Widow as (renewed) proof for an allegedly "sexist" Behavior of Joss Whedon. A reproach that should have hit the (as a feminist influencing) artist hard. A collage of tweets shows which abroad the more than harsh enamelled criticism, which plunged in personal insults etc. Supported, accepted.

How the reproach of sexism can arise is analyzed in this longest text. He shows that in the end, every scene in which a woman occurs is now strongly to sign just that "sexism" be attempted. For example, a woman like the "Scarlet Witch" (Thanks to their thought control, people can confront them with their own hurt) as a new character, then this can be considered sexism, because here a woman as "Manipulative beast" is pictured. A scientist who ducks during a fight scene could be the typical "Damsel in Distress" Mapping etc.

Only the alternative had to be considered here: scientists who are also battleprised by SE, comic characters that are changed to recognition …?

Joss Whedon has now announced his Twitter account, but denied that this has to do with the partially descriptures that achieved him. He looks at Twitter, as he says, more and more than a time-fresh distraction. As for political in his work, he gives himself pragmatic:

Who explains politically, destroyed itself as an artist. Because suddenly this is the paint music test for everything you do – in my case, for example, this is feminism. If you do not do this test only once, you’re a woman’s hat. It comes immediately to you.

Promceeded by feminists, so wheadon, be everyday life since he uses his Twitter account. He was used to it. Part of the feminists were attacked the other part and each subgroup of the "Liberal" (In the US concept of definition), the next subgroup was attacking. Because to rack up and fight together for a target – there is God before.

Criticism of the methods of "Social Justice Warriors", did not come from himself, but of colleagues like James Gunn, who said in a tweet:

Most was allowed to be clear – but anyone who does not believe in the director of a film about the director of a film, should make himself seriously think about his own life.
