For the past few weeks there has been all manner of outrage and controversy surrounding the release of “Captain Marvel”. Now that it has been released, and become a legitimate hit, all of the hysterics can come to an end.
But not the stupidity.
The business authority of the entertainment industry, Variety, covered the successful box office returns, and managed to make a declaration that was heavy on the pronouncements, but light on the facts.

“Ends”, huh? It is almost as if it was the first film with a female to be successful in theaters.

You will have take forgive the movie experts over there, “Wonder Woman” was released all the way back in not even two years ago!
Its only a myth if you keep getting surprised by it. Please try to do better with your headlines.

You just said the key word there – “try”. If they had put just a little bit of effort into this then–then they would not have a grabber for a headline.
Meanwhile, there was more from those pesky movie fans and their memories.
Just like Black Panther was a "surprise" and everyone forgot Blade…a literal black Marvel character with a movie in the unenlightened year of…1998 oof…which had 2 sequels… making it a franchise. Or how about UnderWorld? Hunger Games? Why is any of this shit "surprising". pic.twitter.com/X8Ys2Diw7U

Ah, “Underworld”. A 5-film franchise that has grossed $540 million dollars, starring Kate Beckinsale. But not a myth-breaking series, it seems.
Myths that underworld didn't? Alien? Resident evil? Tomb Raider? What myth is it? I can't figure it out.

Resident Evil, Underworld, Wonder Woman, all did this already, stop you are looking like idiots. Also 61% o the box office was from men

Yes, then there is the “Resident Evil” series. Milla Jovovich was the lead in half a dozen of those titles, pulling in $1.2 billion for that franchise.
But that’s it right? There wouldn’t possibly be any other… oh hell.

So… Did Wonder Woman never happen? Do we have to "forget" about Catching Fire? REALLY?
Stop forcing the people to watch something. If they want, good. If they don't want, good.
Just stop. pic.twitter.com/47O3C7v5LG

Okay — but…but..ummm, they were not technically a “super heroes”, so…
to name a few; Wonder Woman, Thelma & Louise, The Silence of the Lambs, Gravity (2013), Brave (2012), Alien, Aliens, Lara Croft: Tomb Raider (2001), Charlie's Angels (2000), Lucy, The Craft, Kill Bill: Volume 1 and 2, and Pam Grier's filmography.
