EW: There are a lot of female superheroines in comics, but why so few on film? Joss, you tried to make a Wonder Woman movie for several years, right?

WHEDON: Studios will tell you: A woman cannot headline an action movie. After ‘The Hunger Games’ they might stop telling you that a little bit. Watever you think of the movie, it’s done a great service.

JOHANSSON: A lot of female-superhero movies just suck really badly.

WHEDON: The suck factor is not small.

JOHANSSON: There are a couple that have worked-ish, don’t you think?

HEMSWORTH: Angelina Jolie tends to do it pretty well, as a dominant female.

JACKSON: They got to get ‘The Pro’ to the screen! I love that book!

JOHANSSON: What’s The Pro?

JACKSON: It’s a comic book about a hooker who gets superpowers!

JOHANSSON: That is exactly the problem right there!

JACKSON: It’s a really dope book, though.

JOHANSSON: I’d have to wear pasties to greenlight any of these movies.

There could have been a Whedon Wonder Woman movie, y’all. Meditate on that for a minute.

First if you haven’t read this post over on Moviefone run over before they delete it, bury it or worse.

As a quick recap, the article was a “girl” guide to watching to the Avengers if you boyfriend dragged you along. One would have thought an editor would have seen the TNT sparking off the article on the first paragraph:

As your boyfriend probably told you, “The Avengers” is hitting theaters this Friday. And you, dutiful girlfriend, are attending. But you hate action movies and you’ve never even read a comic book. (Of course, that’s not a slight against the girls who actually do read comic books — i.e. real fans, actual people with varied interests — but for this, let’s just go with the stock view of ladies, ladies!)

The shit hit the fan and the Moviefone, part of the Huffington Post empire (which also employs Laura Hudson, a “girl” as the editor of its comics site Comics Alliance …IRONY!) had to start spinning a like a gyroscope:
