Today it was announced that Cathy Yan will be helming the Harley Quinn film starring Margot Robbie for Warner Brothers. This makes her the third female director, and second female director of color to be directing a mega blockbuster superhero film for DC/ Warner Brothers…. Which begs the question: What the hell is the Disney empire doing?
If you can't tell I'm a little obsessed with Thor: Ragnarok. While it's a very enjoyable film it's not perfect, and here are some thoughts that stuck with me after repeat viewings.
I saw Thor: Ragnarok earlier this week and let me start by saying I thoroughly enjoyed it. I’m a big fan of director Taika Waititi, if you haven’t seen What We Do In The Shadows or Hunt for the Wilderpeople yet you should do so immediately. He's brought humor back to the Thor films, restoring Thor back to his cocksure self, which plays incredibly well with Waititi’s sense of comedy.
Unfortunately, even Waititi can’t solve Marvel’s villain problem.
