Guardians of The Galaxy Director James Gunn Controversy:
With James Gunn‘s involvement with Guardians of the Galaxy (which premiered at Comic-Con this week), the film is generating headlines today!” Grace Randolph, the presenter of Beyond the Trailer, tells you about the poll and post on his website that has enraged many fans, especially women, who have called for him to be fired! Is this going to be a blemish on Marvel Phase 2 or will it fade away after this week? Let us know what you think! Will James Gunn’s direction of Guardians of the Galaxy keep you entertained in 2014? Here on YouTube, Beyond the Trailer is the place to go for movie news.
This would allow Tony Stark (Iron Man) to “convert” Batwoman (Kate Kane) from lesbian to heterosexual, and “sex with Nightwing and probably still be called a lesbian,” says Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn. TheMarySue.com’s Susana Polo offers the following explanation: This is the “Slut-Shaming Homophobic Post on Superheroes by… the Director of GOTG”
James Gunn: Some Sexism Controversies Are ‘silly’
Gender equality in the gaming business has been the subject of much debate recently, with both Hitman: Absolution and Tomb Raider coming under fire for their marketing of female characters. James Gunn, the writer of Lollipop Chainsaw, says that while sexism is a problem, some controversies go too far.
Gunn confirmed to Destructoid that he had been listening in on the discussion. It’s all a little absurd in the Tomb Raider case, I think.” Lara Croft’s rape is an odd plot detail, but I don’t know who came up with the idea. It’s even more absurd, in my opinion, when people complain that rape should never be shown in video games (or, I suppose, in any kind of storytelling). This is a medium in which we regularly blast people’s heads off, and we do it as a presumably good-hearted protagonist in the first person. While rape is never a plot point, why does it happen so frequently?
Let’s get this party started. There is no denying that a game’s executive producer stated that the player should desire to “defend” Lara in order to enjoy the game. I think it’s usual for a character in a video game or a movie to have a negative experience, and then we want them to take revenge. Saying that skinning the best friend of that character alive is allowed but raping that character is not seems ludicrous to me.
It’s a big problem, says Gunn, that people are so focused on being correct on the Internet that they don’t contribute anything of value.
Lollipop Chainsaw and The Tomb Raider Controversies Revolve Around This Idea
Now, here’s the deal. They’re continually looking for excuses to be ‘correct,’ both online and in the real world. They are constantly on the lookout for methods to elevate their own moral standing by pointing out the flaws in others’ actions or in the creations of others. Both the Lollipop Chainsaw and the Tomb Raider controversies revolve around this idea. They’re people who are looking for a way to vent their frustrations.
More power to LC in this scenario.” In my opinion, they’ve made a minor game into a major game,” he said. “Our sales have beyond our wildest expectations, and I believe that the people who were insulted in some little way contributed to our success. This is a little harsh for Tomb Raider, which is a far larger franchise, and I think we should wait to see the game. When Scorsese’s Last Temptation of Christ was released, there were picketers outside the theatres, none of whom had seen the film. These individuals are remarkably similar. They undoubtedly would have also called into Ed Sullivan’s show fifty years ago to denounce Elvis Presley’s hip movements.”
Gunn Also Had a Few Words to Say About the Infamous Hitman Trailer Controversy.
“What on earth was the poor Hitman to do? He said that “the nuns in garter belts with enormous firearms were attacking the poor boy.” This man had to hit, shoot, and strangle those people. Either he or they would perish! What’s the big deal with that?
Then I see… ” I take that you mean that they decided to make the sexy nuns in the first place? Exactly. That trailer, I’ll grant you, IS startling, to say the least. But, isn’t that the point? I believe “shocking” is in the DNA of the Hitman series. For what it is worth, I just re-watched the trailer on YouTube, and there were 3,200 “likes” and 130 “dislikes,” so I guess it wasn’t all that controversial. That doesn’t seem to be a big deal at all. It’s clear that most people don’t care.”
Despite His Belief that News Websites Account for The Majority of Controversies, He Calls Them “100 Percent Necessary.”
Destructoid has been given a pass by Gunn, who said that everything we post is “100 percent necessary,” despite his claim that news sites make up most of the controversies. Sincerely, James
When it comes to these hot-button issues, I’m not as dismissive of Gunn’s take as he is. No matter how ridiculous some of the incidents are — and I agree that there is too much passion surrounding them on both sides of the aisle — I still believe the final outcome is positive. There is nothing wrong with gamers hearing new ideas, and that is exactly what I was trying to get across in my recent video series. It’s been a fascinating discussion, and I’d like to think that many of us have taken something away from it.
Some people have gone too far, harassing and attempting to take one other down, but I believe that the rational and logical among us will ultimately profit from these storms. Even if I’m being overly optimistic, I’d rather be that way than be always depressed over the situation.
