"I think part of the problem is that people are frustrated that they want to see more women, doing more things, in superhero movies, and because we don't have as many women as we should yet, they're very, very sensitive to every single storyline that comes up right now."
— Mark Ruffalo
on criticisms of writer Joss Whedon for Avengers: Age of Ultron
, which have ranged from thought-provoking
to an outright torrent of abuse
on Twitter (where else?). (Mark's too generous IMHO; sisterhood kills sisters
. Happily, Whedon says he has always copped it on Twitter and that his decision to depart
was because he's trying to focus on work.)
