Celebrated filmmaker James Gunn feels that there is a huge gender gap prevailing inHollywood and it's not just on the matter of pay but also in the aspect of weaving stories keeping the women characters in light.
James Gunn reveals that his forthcoming sequel to the highly anticipated movie Guardians of the Galaxy will carry an influential storyline for the female characters in the movie.
The director, lamented the absence of a strong storyline on the female character in Hollywood movies, on his Facebook wall and mentioned,
"I am sick of stories where there are a bunch of fully realized male characters and one female character, whose primary characteristic is simply being 'the girl' or the personality-less object of some man's affections," said the director.
"I'm not sick of this because I'm politically correct - those of you who know me know I am far from that - but because it's boring." He added.
"Likewise, I don't think only making female characters 'strong' is a fix either - you see her all the time these days, the perfect female warrior, who is a reaction to the stories of the past, but who is equally as boring and one-dimensional," Gunn wrote on his Facebook wall.
