Patty Jenkins Is Grateful She Didn't Direct Thor: The Dark World

If all went according to plan, Patty Jenkins would’ve been the first woman to direct a Marvel Cinematic Universe film six years before anyone else. The Wonder Woman director was set to make the Thor: The Dark World back in 2013 but left early in the process due to “creative differences.” Now, years later, she’s opened…Read more...

Patty Jenkins is “Super Grateful” She Didn’t End Up Directing ‘Thor: The Dark World’

2013’s Thor: The Dark World is widely regarded as one of the worst movies in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. It’s currently the lowest-rated MCU film on Rotten Tomatoes, even coming up short of 2008’s The Incredible Hulk. (That’s genuinely impressive!) Thankfully, though, the movie’s reputation is only as the MCU’s punching bag and not as a career-ruiner for its one-time director Patty Jenkins, who went on to great success as the filmmaker behind DC’s Wonder Woman movies. In a new interview, Jen...

Birds of Prey Proves the Feminist Revolution in Franchise Films Is Going to Be an Uphill Battle

Harley Quinn is an unlikely character to try to transform into a feminist icon. The villain–and longtime girlfriend of a physically and emotionally abusive Joker–has been a troubling figure in the Batman animated TV series, comics and video games since she was introduced in 1992. Her suffering was frequently used as a punch line: in the popular 2009 video game Arkham Asylum, after the Dark Knight gets into an altercation with her, the Joker quips, “Slapping around Harley is my hobby.” Direc...

Warner Bros., all the gossip said, weren’t going to buy any time. Turns out they didn’t have to — they got Gal Gadot‘s Wonder Woman 1984 into a Tide commercial instead. Tide had a running gag going from an earlier spot, in which Charlie Day overthinks the concept of doing his laundry later. Subsequent spots saw Day enter a Bud...

Why Do the Oscars Keep Shutting Women Out of Best Director? This One Academy Rule Helps Explain It

The 2020 Oscar nominations were announced Monday morning, and once again female directors were shut out of the Best Director category. Such oversights are nothing new. In the Academy Awards’ 92-year history, only five women have ever been nominated for Best Director, and only one — Kathryn Bigelow — has ever won. But the snub was particularly glaring in a year when women dominated top-10 lists and the awards conversation. Greta Gerwig’s Little Women, Lulu Wang’s The Farewell, Lorene Scafari...

Women film directors are calling the shots more than ever, but ‘more progress needed,’ 2 new reports say  

More women directed big movies in 2019 than ever, according to two different academic studies released Thursday. The figures are still well below representative equity compared to U.S. population demographics, but they do seem to signal an improvement in the historically male-dominated field.

The Best Female-Directed Movies of the Decade

(This article is part of our Best of the Decade series.) The 2010s were a banner decade for female directors. Despite the still abysmally low number of women working behind the camera, women directors have made significant strides in Hollywood and across the globe, earning as much or even more acclaim — and now, as much money — as their male counterparts.
