Not All Heroes Wear Capes—Some Wear Heels
Most superhero movies are chock-full of the same cliches: a 30-second training montage, a guy-saves-girl meet-cute, and a final CGI smackdown.
Superhero movies also typically revolve around an average Joe-turned superhuman hero. Case in point: we’ve all heard of the all American, tight-sporting superheroes—Superman and Batman—and their movies. Even non-Justice League favorites like the Black Panther and, dare we say, Deadpool, get their share of the limelight too.
But what about the ladies? (And no, we don’t mean the damsels in distress.) What about the superheroines that defeat evil with their hair down?
There are plenty of female superheroes in the DC/Marvel universes, but not many get a movie of their own. To show these ladies some love, we want to pay one superhero fan $1,000 to watch 6 female-led superhero movies in support of the cause.
