Latinitas - A Strong Voice for Latina Youth

I loved Iron Man 2 for the summer movie it is, but I am left asking why must Hollywood generate such lame parts for women? The two ladies in the film - Gwyneth Paltrow and Scarlett Johanssen have weird placement. Everyone else is saving the world while they are wearing 3 inch Prada heels. I know it's not the actress's fault. At the end of the film Scarlett turns out to be a secret agent and whoops some major enemy booty - 8-9 guys in her wake, but not after being sexualized the whole beginning of the movie. And, Gwyneth's role as Pepper Potts, Stark Industries CEO - is such a bobo, really adding nothing to the film except a need to be rescued at the end. She is watching an enemy clone about to detonate and just stands there until Iron Man (Robert Downey) swoops down to save her. Come on really - as we cusp the future world of Iron Man technology - women still need to be rescued? Hollywood give me a break. Ladies - Latinitas - anyone out there reading this - please write better films for us!!!! And why haven't we seen a film of Wonder Woman. I dread it if a ex-frat boy writer gets to scribe this one. I am going to write it. Wonder Woman was my all-time hero. She had a show in the 70s and the actress who played her: Linda Carter was Latina!!! YES! So this is a call to action - whomever writes Wonder Woman the movie - do her justice!
