Joss Whedon slams Jurassic World for sexist gender roles Anonymous 3245453

>Avengers director takes umbrage at the status quo set up by the first clip from the film


>Yesterday saw the first clip from director Colin Trevorrow’s Jurassic World premiere online. While many fans were no doubt bummed by the lack of dinosaurs, others were merely titillated by the appearance of strong-chested Chris Pratt.


>But Joss Whedon saw the clip a different way. The Avengers: Age of Ultron director/writer has made a reputation for creating powerful female characters in his stories, like Buffy the Vampire Slayer or Zoe from Firefly. In the JW clip, what he saw was a stiff, emotionless, over-organized woman and a “charming” sex-joke making, down-to-earth man. In other words, a set of tired gender tropes that Whedon related to old-fashioned sexism


Here's the clip in question.

He seems like a lawsuit waiting to happen.
She seems like a professional who's tired of his shit.

I'm getting a little tired of Joss "every single character has a witty quip in every single situation" Whedon's writing style anyways.

Exactly how many strong female characters does Age of Ultron have? Black Widow? And what exactly makes her a powerful female character? The fact that she can punch people?

>what he saw was a stiff, emotionless, over-organized woman

MAN THAT SURE DOESN'T SOUND LIKE THAT CHARACTER I WAS JUST TALKING ABOUT.

Go soak your head and take a long look in the mirror, Whedon.
