It made me really happy (if it's true, I mean. we'll see).
It made me thinking. I realized how happy I am that movies like The Hunger Games and... yes, even Twilight had such an amazing success.
I think that it's because of it that we will start to see a lot more big movies with female leads in them.
But females aren't the only ones in need of representation. We don't have enough black male and female leads, and let's not even start to talk about Asian leads. And what about openly GAY* lead characters?
It seems that in the world of big mainstream Hollywood films gay people do not exist.
But i'm not just talking about big mainstream Hollywood films, but also big mainstream books and comic books and tv shows and video games.
Now, sure. There are more representation of minorities in those other mediums that aren't Hollywood films, but even there it's still not enough and there still aren't many minorities in LEADING roles...
*In Japan for instance there are plenty of big titles with openly gay characters in leading roles. Like Tokyo Babylon, No. 6, and the currently airing From the New World among others. Even in Evangelion the main character Shinji had gay tendencies.
