THIS WEEK IN POSTERS: This week in This Week in Posters, we’ve got superheroes, starlets, blood, and of course Will Smith. Click on for more fun! This is your favorite time of the week!
New from Marvel, it’s a new one-sheet for The Avengers. It looks like Marvel’s poster designer has been paying attention to all the gender-swapped superhero parodies going around the internet. Tony Stark and The Hulk both have their asses jutting out coquettishly like total boy-sluts, while Black Widow gets the straightforward hero pose (to say nothing of Hawkeye’s dangling phallus-arrows). I always thought that “superheroes are sexist!” argument was kind of stupid anyway. Sure, there are some whorey looking super heroines (of course there are, look who’s drawing them), but keep in mind, the archetypal male superhero is a guy in a spandex suit with a red cape, knee-high f-me boots and his underwear on the outside of his leotard. The hypersexualization goes both ways. Like your sister. There are more important things to worry about, is what I’m saying. Like why the hell is Captain America 50 feet tall.
