It's a franchise that directly tackles how women are often invalidated, manipulated or exploited by men. It's central to the whole franchise. And strong roles for women are fewer then strong roles for men, it's kind of alarming when a strong iconic female character's legacy is taken up by a man. Whether or not this is tackled in the novel or audio adapation, I'll have to wait see, but I don't really get why Master Doctor got so up worked over it, particularly when you tried to ease my concerns.
if you have ever read the expanded universe stuff, you will realise what you are saying is cobblers, you are basing your argument on 3 movies. Now it may seem right from your current viewpoint but trust me there are as many gun touting men as women in the universe. Mostly women exist as equals....they die just as horribly as men.
the franchise exists to make money, it’s not a legacy or fight for rights and recognition......it’s a bloody nasty monster franchise that makes a few quid.
The movies are central. No offence, but people miss the point with extended material all the time. The six movies are the central and most well-known narrative , anything else is kind of secondary and the stuff I've addressed wasn't exactly handled with much subtly. It's not really artsy in any of the way Scott, Cameron, Fincher and Whedon dealt with it, either. The most quouted line out of this franchise was to tear down the word and celebrate and respect Motherhood.
