Sony apparently had the “smart” idea of teaming up with Shazam, the mobile app that tells you the artist and title of a song, to bring a true end credits scene to Amazing Spider-Man 2; releasing this Friday.

I’m not one to support pulling out a phone during a movie but the fine people at ComingSoon had a truly smart idea.

Do Toys and Batman Ruin Female Super Hero Movies?

A little while back, I had a conversation with some friends about comic book movies. It stemmed from Iron Man airing on TV; which led to someone mentioning how much they disliked Pepper’s portrayal in Iron Man 3 as the “damsel in distress” until the climax of the film. They argued that the movie fails to optimize her character in lieu of a trope, but let’s put aside the fact that Pepper has almost always been an ancillary character.

The conversation then moved on to “Why are there no comic book movies featuring a female heroes?”

Where am I going with this? Well, with recent news that Katee Sackhoff may play a major role in an upcoming Marvel Studios film (which is hopefully as Captain Marvel); I thought I would give my thoughts as why there have been no successful comic book movies featuring a female hero and how the sales of toys and success of Batman hinders a movie coming out.
