As if it were possible to love Ryan Reynolds any more, he's gone and called out the sexist marketing of superhero movies. Ryan, in the (slightly paraphrased) words of Enriqué - you are now OUR hero, baby.
Speaking during promo for his superhero/antihero flick Deadpool - which he not only starred in but also produced - Ryan was asked about how they went about making the movie 'appealing' to a female audience.
Before you roll your eyes too hard, though, Ryan had the ~perfect~ response, calling out studios for sexist marketing tactics that assume women 'don't like superhero movies'.
"I think it's funny that the studio go 'oh, how are we going to market this movie to women'", he said.
"'You know, we have to market the romantic angle'. And it's sort of like, well no - women love fucking superhero movies! Clearly they go to these movies.
"It's sort of funny that the studios are sometimes the last to know that".
This follows an interview with Buzzfeed, where Ryan talked about the fact Deadpool has a whole load of strong female characters.
"It's a no brainer," he said. "Movies in general don't always reflect
society in the right way. I liked the idea of some kickass women in the
film. And if we get the chance to do another movie, we want to do more
Ryan Reynolds, you are great.
