Anonymous said: Have you heard about "The 50 Superheroes you want to have sex with" list James Gunn posted? It's so disgustingly sexist and just offensive in general. The Guardians of the Galaxy movie has been sort of tainted for me after reading these kind of comments from the director.

I heard about it, I haven’t read about it. That Batwoman comment is fucked up and vile.

I like James Gunn’s work and people say terrible things they regret later, lord knows I have done it many times.

But he needs to apologize for that comment. I haven’t seen the rest, but that Batwoman comment is fucking inexcusable.

  2. pointless-nonsense said: Apologize is right. Fucked up as they are, I don’t like how quick people are to judge a guy based on a few words without giving him the opportunity to defend them or retract them and apologize. He might be a monster or maybe an ok guy who screwed up.

  6. invisiblelad said: The Gambit comment isn’t much better. I believe there’s a “devil’s threeway” and the phrase “little fruit” in it…twice.
  7. junkieofdata said: There are exactly zero redeeming features to that article. He implied, or outright called, roughly half the popular female characters slut or whore, and said some incredibly homophobic things about quite a few of the male and female characters.
