it's odd that the first film to be written by a woman is the most sexist. did they just not allow her to do what she wants or does she have some serious internal misogyny because she's one of the guys? makes ya think.




after james gunn was brought on to the script, she was removed from the project and had no further involvement. gunn made several rewrites to the script, and then worked off of that for the direction of his film. this was the first marvel movie with a woman on the writing credits, yeah, but her name and involvement were definitely secondary to gunn’s. considering gunn has come under fire for extremely sexist humor before, I have no problem laying the blame for the sexist tone of the film on him.

i’m blaming some of it on joss whedon because:

Joss Whedon had some involvement in the writing process for Guardians – James Gunn worked with him to mold the script. Everyone loved Gunn’s original script… except for Joss Whedon, who said he liked it but that it was too conventional and “it needed more James Gunn.” So Gunn took another pass and really went for it.

Kevin Francis Gray Art

Kevin Francis Gray’s 2005 body of work was so hugely appealing: London youths—the freaks and oft-romanticized street tribes of the East End—were cast as towering Rodin-like figures. These figures wore jeans, tanks, and sneakers; their faces obscured by hoodies and veils. It was urban ghetto-gothic street style immortalized in ancient materials like bronze, marble, and black resin. A once fleeting feeling was rendered permanent, mythical almost.
