I'M GLAD THAT SUPERGIRL WILL BE A SERIES, BUT...


One of the major complaints about the recent explosion of superhero movies is that there aren't enough female heroes represented.  Sure, we get Black Widow in the Avengers movies, but how come all the guys get their stand alone film and she doesn't?  Someday we might actually get that promised Wonder Woman film, but otherwise the film world is pretty sparse with the female superheroes.

Recently, Scarlet Johansson hosted Saturday Night Live, and she did a digital short addressing this problem.  They imagined what it would be like if Black Widow finally got her own feature film.



Pretty funny, right?  But also kind of sad because that's probably exactly what it would be like.  Want proof of this?  Check out the teaser trailer for CBS' new Supergirl TV series.  It's like the SNL bit and this series were separated at birth.
