  For years, creators of superhero movies have shrugged off questions addressing the scarcity of women stars, echoing the sentiment, “Comic books are for boys.” But in recent films, I have noticed a shift.

As it turns out, not everyone is satisfied with the current state of affairs. It has recently come to light that the NFL began taking action against M.I.A. about a month after the incident...
If you haven't fantasized about having a bestie like Amy Poehler, then you're lying to yourself. Finally, in an interview with Vulture, she has revealed to the masses just what it takes to be deemed worthy of late-night texting marathons and corny birthday presents: "Money, connections, power, sexiness, thick hair, fast cars, a sweet-ass booty, and a desire to travel.
