Sony just inked a deal with Marvel Comics to put out a female-led superhero movie based on a character from the Spider-Man universe (like, I don’t know, Spider-Woman?). This may have been an alternate cover, but it’s launched 1,000 think pieces, the conclusion of which has been: “This is what happens when men draw female characters.” If this is how Spider-Woman is envisioned for the comics, female fans shouldn’t get their hopes up for the movie version.
Kevin Feige, the head of Marvel Studios, recently said that he thought there ought to be a female superhero film. And yet he hasn’t green-lit one, despite the fact that fans are practically begging for a Black Widow movie starring Scarlett Johansson—a spinoff from the Avengers franchise. Perhaps he’s waiting to see how Sony and Marvel’s yet-to-be-named super-heroine will do first, which is why drawings like this one matter.
Time's article explicitly draws the line between the Spider-Woman cover and the potential for a Black Widow movie. It sounds ridiculous to say, but until I read this article, as much as I was frustrated with both the cover and the lack of film prospects, I hadn’t made the connection between them.

There should be a show just called “AU”
every single episode, a group of the same characters are in a different alternate universe with no explanation as to why.
