Just because you work at Marvel DOESN’T mean you can’t enjoy the world of DC, too; and Marvel comic book writer Dan Slott (The Amazing Spider-Man) tweeted he liked the recently released teaser for the upcoming CBS show, “Supergirl.” But then the angry fanboys emerged…
If you haven’t yet, be sure to watch the “Supergirl” first look released by CBS.
To be honest, this didn’t really ring MY bell and made me kind of sad…but not enough to jump on the good ol’ internet and yell “THIS SUCKS,” (because it’s not THAT terrible). Apparently a lot of guys DID, though — calling it “too girly,” (among other things) and a side-by-side comparison of said trailer to last weekend’s SNL digital short starring Scarlett Johansson for a Black Widow standalone film trailer parody emerged.
I don’t wanna be a butt, but yeah — REALLY similar. (Press “play” on both at same time or watch one at a time – your choice!)
Well, Slott (above) doesn’t want to hear it and said as such last night on Twitter:
If you’re tweeting me to slam the SG trailer ’cause it’s too girly, generic, or like the SNL BWidow spoof– AND you’re a guy? Not listening.

With people wanting Joss Whedon’s head on a pike LAST week after Avengers: Age Of Ultron opened in theaters accusing him of being misogynist over the Black Widow storyline and complaints about “Supergirl” THIS week…man. THAT SAID, it also leads me to wonder what his answer would’ve been if the lion’s share of the complaints came from fanGIRLS instead of guys?
We have a PLETHORA of comic book movies and TV shows (both animated and live action) with even MORE on the way – maybe we should revel in that for a few minutes. Remember the 90s? You want to deal with THAT dry spell again? Because I sure as #$%% don’t!
What did YOU think of the “Supergirl” teaser? Is it too saccharine sweet or just the right amount of sass?
