Sigourney Weaver Hates Superheros


Thursday, July 21, 2011

SIGOURNEY Weaver is taking on Batman, Superman, Spider-Man and their comic book contemporaries for ruining things for the girls.

The 62-year-old actress says the continuing trend in putting comic characters on the big screen means there are less opportunities for women to kick-ass in movies.

“Comic books are all about the men because they were written in the ’50s and ’60s,” says Sigourney.

“There are gorgeous, occasionally kick-ass characters like Scarlett Johansson in Iron Man 2 but in general I don’t think those guys making those movies were thinking about women. I think as long as Hollywood is doing that, there won’t be these amazing action-women characters.”

Weaver recently revealed she would love to return to her famous role of Ellen Ripley in another Alien sequel but believes her age is a big turn-off for producers.

“It’s just the way the industry is,” says Sigourney who played intergalactic heroine Ripley in four Alien movies.

“While I can’t speak for them but I think for (Twentieth Century) Fox, once you’re 60 you’re not going to be starring in an action movie. I think it’s too bad that that’s the case. I would have liked to do one last story where we go back to the planet, where Ripley’s history is resolved. I do feel like her story is unfinished. I could definitely kick that alien’s ass again!”

    Sigourney Weaver is epic and I would love to see her in another Alien movie but,you know, Ripley’s dead. Her story is resolved. As a fanboy, I don’t see how, realistically, Sigourney Weaver can play Ripley again. There’s always the clone I suppose. Or time travel if things get desperate.

    I WAS THINKING ABOUT A 12 BY 6 GOLD PLATED COVER WITH A 14 KT GOLD STAR ON THE FRONT NO LESS THEN $20. SO I WOULD LOVE TO DO THIS RIGHT THE FIRST TIME AND BE SENT MY MONEY FOR SOME OF THESE FILMS I WORKED ON?

    I REALIZE THAT I AM THE “SUBJECT” AND MY PARENTS WERE VERY ABUSIVE NOT TO GET MY MONEY FOR ME. AND I WILL NEVER BE ABLE TO ACCEPT THAT ABUSE I WILL ALWAYS NEED MY PAYMENT.

    I WISH FOR THE MONEY TO MAKE THIS BOOK RIGHT THE FIST TIME WITH EACH COVER WORTH $20 DOLLARS I NEED THE MONEY UP FRONT.
    I WAS ALWAYS TOLD TO CALL WHEN I WANTED MY PAYMENT AND I AM.
