What Would Happen If A Lady Superhero Pitched Her Own Movie?

This would be hilarious if it wasn't so painfully accurate.

We all know it’s high time Hollywood gave us a lady-led superhero film (that isn’t Halle Berry’s Catwoman). But given the studio system’s intense reluctance to do so, what do you think would happen if a real-life female superhero tried to pitch a movie of her life?

It pretty much reads exactly as darkly humorous as you think it would; lots of vehement claims of “I’m a feminist!” over suggestions for more male heroes. My personal favorite moment is when one of the male studio execs says he’s been on three different “Women in Hollywood” panels this year alone. Sigh. I want to laugh – so why am I crying?
