SNL Hilariously Skewers Marvel's Idea Of "A Girl Superhero Movie"

Spoiler alert: it’s a rom-com! “For Black Widow, falling in love can be hard, but it can also be ... INCREDIBLE!” Cardigan-clad Scarlett Johansson, last night’s Saturday Night Live host, is a true hero for participating in this (probably depressingly accurate) sketch.




I don’t know which movies you are watching but it’s pretty clear that the current MCU movies are what Marvel considers “Girl Superhero movies”. On many occasions (most of them involving Thor) they clearly cater to the “female gaze”. This is backed up by their obove average female audience breakdown of the box office numbers.
