Reporter: I have a question to Robert and to Scarlett. Firstly to Robert, throughout Iron Man 1 and 2, Tony Stark started off as a very egotistical character but learns how to fight as a team. And so how did you approach this role, bearing in mind that kind of maturity as a human being when it comes to the Tony Stark character, and did you learn anything throughout the three movies that you made?
And to Scarlett, to get into shape for Black Widow did you have anything special to do in terms of the diet, like did you have to eat any specific food, or that sort of thing?
Scarlett: How come you get the really interesting existential question, and I get the like, “rabbit food” question?
The respect given to you if you’re a man in the entertainment business, and the respect given to you if you’re a woman in the entertainment business: all perfectly summed up in one idiotically thought out line of questioning.

You know, I always did like Scarlett Johannson.

Dat side-eye.

Let me just hug you forever Miss Johannson.

Scarlett Johansson gives the best side-eye. 

That side-eye is pretty great.

misogyny at its finest! 
i wonder though, what is going to come out of her statement? will this systematic degradation of women stop? will there be a rise in complex heroines? 
you can argue that lisbeth is deep and growing and a heroine, but she is really just super vengeful and powerful throughout the series. or that cataleya is doing something special, but she is also a women filled with blind rage.
im not knocking, but there is a missing voice in popular media. im not saying this character doesnt exist, but she is not as present as these other folks.
