Superhero Movie Leading Ladies Don't Get Much Screen Time
As you know no superhero movie is complete without its leading lady. These are big actresses that get paid a lot of money to co-star in these films, and some of you might be shocked to learn that they really don't get that much screen time in the comic book movies they star in. It breaks down to an average of 22 minutes.
In the most recent issue of Entertainment Weekly, there's an article called 'Behind Every Superhero, There's a Woman Without Much to Do'. It basically breaks down how much time each of these leading ladies get in the movie, and it's surprisingly not much! The actresses included in the article include Emma Stone in The Amazing Spider-Man, Blake Lively in The Green Lantern, Natalie Portman in Thor, Gwyneth Paltrow in Iron Man, Maggie Gyllenhaal in The Dark Knight, Kirsten Dunst in Spider-Man, Katie Holmes in Batman Begins, and Jennifer Connelly in Hulk.
