Good Reads: Superheroine Edition

23 May 2014 11:00 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

With various X-Men smearing their mutant DNA all of your movie screens this weekend, it's become painfully obvious that movie studios are still terrifed of superheroes with vaginas. Storm continues to be the single most-wasted ineptly-transferred great character from the comics but Kitty Pryde has an even sadder story. "X-Men Days of Future Past," one of the most famous and influential comic arcs of all time, originally granted the phasing young mutant (played by Ellen Page in the movies) the starring role. We all knew they would find a way to sideline her.

I lurve Hugh Jackman but one of my biggest disappointments about the X-Men movies continues to be the way the team aspects are muted in order to make it all about the charismatic clawed one. The Avengers figured out a way to balance multiple headliners but the X-Men movies haven't been that inspired. So here are two »

Hulk Smash! Stan Lee speaks out about David Goyer's She-Hulk comments; podcast host also responds

23 May 2014 10:30 AM, PDT | - PopWatch | See recent - PopWatch news »

If you’ve been following the She-Hulk controversy that’s erupted over the past few days, you know that Man of Steel writer (and DC visionary) David Goyer had some pretty negative things to say about Jennifer Walters’ big, green alter ego in a recent podcast — things like “I think She-Hulk is the chick that you could f–k if you were Hulk, you know what I’m saying?”

Goyer’s comments were not only unfounded (She-Hulk is actually a cousin to Bruce Banner, a young and shy girl who was never intended to be any kind »

Now Is The Perfect Time For Marvel To Make A She-Hulk Movie

23 May 2014 2:05 AM, PDT | | See recent Cinema Blend news »

A couple of days ago, screenwriters Craig Mazin and David Goyer raised the ire of fans by saying derogatory, borderline inflammatory statements against the character of She-Hulk. Lambasting the character is one thing: most people, however, are upset with the coded terms both men used to address the hero, reducing her history to sex appeal and power fantasies. Their statements were steeped in ignorance. As a result, everyone's had a response, an answer to their ill-advised comments. But what should happen is the most obvious response, the one we haven't heard yet. There needs to be a She-Hulk movie. Marvel's got four more films on their schedule: this summer's Guardians Of The Galaxy, next year's Avengers: Age Of Ultron and Ant-Man and Captain America 3 in 2016. Beyond that, there's only two more release dates and no more titles, with those slots rumored to go to Thor 3, Dr. Strange or even Black »

David Goyer Calls She-Hulk a "A Giant, Green Porn Star" Stan Lee Defends

22 May 2014 1:30 PM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Is Marvel's She-Hulk "a giant, green porn star"? Dark Knight and Man of Steel screenwriter David Goyer seems to think so. He recently was a guest on John August's Scriptnotes podcast. While on the show he shared his theory about the character She-Hulk saying,

“So the Hulk was this classic male power fantasy. It’s like, most of the people reading comic books were these people like me who were just these little kids who were getting the shit kicked out of them every day…. And so then they created She-Hulk, right? Who was still smart, so it was like, I think She-Hulk is the chick that you could f--- if you were Hulk, you know what I’m saying?… She-Hulk was the extension of the male power fantasy. So it’s like if I’m going to be this geek who becomes the Hulk, »

David S. Goyer Calls She-Hulk A “Classic Male Power Fantasy,” Talks His Version of DC’s Martian Manhunter

22 May 2014 8:42 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Even though he’s one of the main influences behind the modern comic book film as we know it, David S. Goyer consistently seems less and less enamored with shepherding DC in configuring their vast universe of characters for the big screen. As his “Man of Steel” sequel, “Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice” tried to dominate the news yesterday with its title announcement, the focus turned instead to a more critical direction—Goyer’s misjudged comments regarding two DC superheroes, in particular, She-Hulk and Martian Manhunter. During a guest appearance (via Nerdist) on the screenwriting podcast Scriptnotes for their “Summer Superhero Spectacular," Goyer joined host Craig Mazin, Andrea Berloff (“King Conan”), Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely (“Captain America: The Winter Soldier”) in discussing the upcoming slate of comic book films hitting theatres. His most puzzling moment came when Markus in conversation noted that She-Hulk “has the worst, most demeaning character name. »

David S. Goyer Dismisses She-Hulk As 'A Giant Green Porn Star'

22 May 2014 7:39 AM, PDT | | See recent Cinema Blend news »

The rivalry between Marvel and DC runs deep, and has for decades. So when a creative voice associated with one party comments on record about a character in the other company.s stable, you know that their words are going to be picked over and analyzed by both fervent fan bases. particularly when the comments can be interpreted with sexist and borderline misogynistic undertones. David S. Goyer has a long history with DC Comics, having penned screenplays for motion pictures based on iconic DC characters like Superman (Man of Steel) and Batman (Christopher Nolan.s Dark Knight films). That doesn.t mean Goyer doesn.t pay attention to the Marvel stable of heroes, and he commented on one . She-Hulk . during an appearance on screenwriter John August.s ScriptNotes podcast. Goyer was one of several panel members recording in front of a live audience, including co-host Craig Mazin, as well as »

David Goyer Calls Marvel's She-Hulk 'A Giant, Green Porn Star'

21 May 2014 4:53 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Just because David S. Goyer is currently hard at work on DC Entertainment properties in both film (Batman V. Superman) and television (Constantine) doesn’t mean he doesn’t have any opinions about Marvel characters -- even though many fans of Marvel may wish differently. During an appearance on screenwriter John August’s Scriptnotes podcast alongside Andrea Berloff, Craig Mazin and Captain America: The Winter Soldier screenwriters Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely, Goyer talked about his theory about the character She-Hulk.

David Goyer Calls She-hulk A Porn Star & Also Knocks Martian Manhunter

21 May 2014 10:01 AM, PDT | | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

First off, thank to for coming across this. John August and Craig Mazin host Scriptnotes Podcast, and on last night's broadcast they interviewed writers: Andrea Berloff, Christopher Markus, Stephen McFeely and David Goyer. the discussion was centered on adapting superheroes for film, and this is when Goyer chimed in with some unflattering comments regarding Martian Manhunter and She-Hulk. Let's first look at his comments about Martian Manhunter, aka J'onn J'onzz. As many of you know, he's the green alien that is part of the Justice League. He conceals his identity on Earth by posing as a Lieutenant Homicide Detective for the Metropolis police department under the identity of John Jones. When Goyer was approached about adapting the character for film he harshly criticized the character, implying that Martian Manhunter was too obscure for the general audience. “How many people in the audience have heard of Martian Manhunter?” After »
