It’s proof that the more prominent and well-funded a movie about women gets, and the greater the hopes for its box office are, the less specifically female (or black, or gay, or whatever) that movie is allowed to be.
Well, of course.I don’t mean to be harsh, but this is not an art house movie. It’s a summer tentpole picture aimed at the broadest audience possible. Other tentpole pictures of late have done a lot better job of representing strong women. For all its faults, Superman Vs. Batman’s Wonder Woman is presented in all her powerful glory, both professionally as Diana Prince, and as the superhero. Women proving themselves against men is a Hollywood trope that’s long past its due date; but the reanimated Ghostbusters largest flaw is that it’s just not that funny or original and that’s the director’s fault.
