Apparently Scarlett Johansson is suing The Walt Disney Company over the two-pronged release of Black Widow on Disney+ and in theaters. It’s about time someone took a stand on this issue because I don’t think it’s in dispute that making titles available via streaming at the same time they’re released in theaters, it’s the theaters […]
Women directors aren’t exactly a known quantity as far as action movies go, and I suspect that that’s less a commentary on their ability to do the job than preconceived notions about what they as women can and cannot do.
