Olivia Wilde Reveals Why Female Superheroes Need To Change

Olivia Wilde recently talked about why female superheroes should change. 

In an interview with CinemaBlend, Wilde, 31, said: "I'm a big fan of superhero films, and I have so much respect for the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The thing with female superheroes is that, in order to be powerful, they are flawless. The idea of kick-ass power lacks a certain nuance, at times. There is something to be said for a female director working to create a female superhero that perhaps (has) a little more complexity."

The actress added: "Marvel has been so smart about casting unexpected people for these roles. Look at what Robert Downey (Jr.) brought to Iron Man. A real, dry sense of humor and a complexity to his hero balance. I think that the way these Marvel heroes are written, the female superheroes included, do have complexity and flaws. But I think when they are translated into film, the women can become these ultimate goddesses of perfection and I would love to create a female Marvel character who is just as unexpected and complex as some of the male characters as Iron Man. I think that would be really cool!"
