Just watched Spider-Man Homecoming, and I've got to say... I'm glad Sony is taking Spidey back. This had a glaring black hole of lousiness that bugged me so much.
In short--all the men are idiots and weak. Except for this guy.
Yup. Bad guy who wanted to cause mass casualties for fame and fortune and power? Sure. And the only non sorry excuse for a man in the movie. The only actual male role model for Spidey or anyone watching the film. The only male character who does a good job of being calm, confident, mature, ambitious... anything.
Think back. Yes, literally every female character we met besides Janice (who really doesn't count as much of a character) was fairly strong, smart, calm, collected, confident.
Now. Let's compare.Former Spy. Now relies on kids for help. Gets totally duped by villain. Thinks a construction zone is Interpool.
Think about that. In this superhero movie, in this age of equality, "progressive" now means "all women are strong and the only strong male role model is the villain."
