Granted, I haven’t seen the new Avengers movie yet, I won’t see it until it comes out on Blu Ray, but already the crazy SJWs are out whining about how bad it is. Joss Whedon walked away from Twitter entirely because he was getting abused, some people thought it was the radical feminist idiots that pushed him away, although he’s denied it, I suspect because he’s a self-identified feminist and he doesn’t want to make the whole movement look bad. However, it isn’t just Joss Whedon that has made this whole thing so absurd.
I ran into a SJW on a forum who was whining long and hard that Avengers: Age of Ultron was a horrible movie and no feminists or other liberals ought to see it because the Maximoff twins, Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver were not Jews, as they were in the comic books, but now they were white and white people suck. I kid you not.
Of course, in the comics, they are the kids of Magneto, but in the movies, FOX owns the rights to Magneto with their licensing of the X-Men franchise. However, in the X-Men films that Ian McKellen has appeared in, even though the first X-Men movie tells his backstory as a Jew in a Nazi death camp, McKellen isn’t a Jew at all. He’s a white guy. A British gay atheist white guy in fact. Are the feminists screaming about that? I rather doubt it. But since Magneto doesn’t exist in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, there’s really no reason to make Wanda and Pietro Jewish because their parentage is the only place that it comes into play.
And besides, if you want to demand comic correctness, Nick Fury was a white guy in the comics for decades, nobody is complaining that Samuel L. Jackson is playing him in the movies. This isn’t about comic accuracy, it’s about liberal racism.
Personally, I don’t give a damn what race anyone is in the movies. It’s irrelevant. I care if the movies are good. That’s all that ought to matter. Movies are not social commentary, they are entertainment. That’s not what liberals care about though, they only see race, they only see gender, they only see sexual orientation, they can’t just sit back and enjoy the show. That’s why everything turns into some kind of political, social debate instead of just a movie, just a TV show, just a discussion, it’s always war.
Maybe that’s why so many of us just stare at the SJW’s like they’ve got a third eye, they can’t just be normal people, they always have to be on the lookout for anything they can use, fairly or not, to push their political and social agenda, even when it’s a comic book movie.
