so in iron man 2

a little boy in an iron man helmet tries to shoot one of the rampaging suits with his lil toy flight stabilizers

in spider-man 2

a little boy puts on his spiderman suit and stands up against the rhino

that’s great for all the little boys in the theater, but you know what I want?

i want a little girl to help the heroes

i want a six-year old redhead to kick nat’s gun to her

i want a twelve-year old with braces and a lisp to shake cap back to consciousness

i want a nine-year old latina girl to take clint by the hand and walk him down unfamiliar streets back to the main fight

i want a sixteen-year old black girl to kick an enemy in the back of the knees to save sam wilson

because girls are sitting in that audience too

and they deserve to see that

Elaine Stritch, Tart-Tongued Broadway Actress and Singer, Is Dead at 89 | NYT

Plainspoken, egalitarian, impatient with fools and foolishness, and admittedly fond of cigarettes, alcohol and late nights — she finally gave up smoking and drinking in her 60s — though she took it up again — Ms. Stritch might be the only actor to work as a bartender after starring on Broadway, and she was completely unabashed about her good-time-girl attitude.

“I’m not a bit opposed to your mentioning in this article that Frieda Fun here has had a reputation in the theater, for the past five or six years, for drinking,” she said to a reporter for The New York Times in 1968. “I drink and I love to drink, and it’s part of my life.”
