I’m a woman that love superheroes, deal with it!


The other day I saw on Tumblr a set of gifs of Ryan Reynolds in the Berlin press conference of Deadpool where he debunked the myth that women only go to the movies for love stories and that they don’t like action movies. He said and I quote: “I think it’s funny that the studios go, ‘Oh, how are we going to market this movie to women? We have to market the romantic angle. And it’s sort of like, well — no. Women love fucking superhero movies! Clearly they go to these movies. It’s sort of funny that the studios are sometimes the last to know that.”

I never related so much to a quote! I love superheroes movies, tv shows, comics, etc. I love action movies even more! And I don’t like it because it has a deep, cute love story or because the actor that plays the hero is hot… No I like the movies because I love the stories, it’s as easy as that!

I’m like this since I was a kid, really. I loved comic books and I had a big collection of comics… When I got older I discovered that I could read them online and I started reading manga! Besides comics, I always loved watching cartoons of some superheroes too: Batman, Superman, Spider-Man, Teenage Mutant Turtles, Sailormoon, etc. I would watch them all on the tv and later on the movies! I watch every movie from Marvel franchise to DC Comics. You can’t imagine my excitment when I saw some of these movies on the theaters! I’m like a kid on Christmas and always wait until the movie really end so I won’t miss any important scene.

And surprise, no matter what I try to see these movies because I genuinely love their concept! I love action movies and to see a team get together to defeat evil… I don’t need a “hot” or “pretty” man to represent a character for me to love it! In fact, I resent the fact that most superheroes are men… Yes Marvel this is for you, where is my movie about Black Widow?! I don’t need a cute love story to get hooked to a story… I even prefer a good and strong friendship between two or more characters that really have an impact on the story! (Yes, this is about Steve Rogers and Bucky Barnes!)

I even make people give me Kinder eggs because I get an action figure from The Avengers!  I have some already, but this year I will get more… I have t-shirts and jumpers of superheroes so as you can see I love them, I really love them! You want to know the movies that I’m more excited to see this year? Deadpool, Captain America: Civil War and Suicide Squad! See, it’s all about superheroes with me… One of my biggest dreams is to go to Comic Con in San Diego! It would be like a dream come true!!! To be there in the middle of a world filled with people like me…

In conclusion, yes I’m a woman that loves superheroes not because they have a cute love story but because they are awesome! Deal with it…

  1. I am a woman who simply loves good stories and movies, no matter what genre. I like action – when it is well done (meaning you can excite me with something like Die Hard but some of the cheaper shoot them up movies are not for me. I like romance – when it is well written (meaning I hate most romcoms as much as some guys do, but there are a few I adore). It’s never about the genre for me, it is always about how well a movie is done.
    There are two movies which come out this year I can’t wait to see. One is Civil War. The other is Disney’s Moana.
