GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY: Director Has Geek Girls Ready To Boycott
Does director James Gunn deserve ire for his annual poll of the "50 Superheroes You Most Want to Have Sex With?"
Excitement over Guardians of the Galaxy continues to build this week as the first serious moves toward casting begin. But not everyone is excited. The geek girls over at themarysue.com are all up in arms. Apparently, James Gunn, writer/director of the coming GotG, as well as Super, Scooby Doo and the TV show PG Porn, has a sense of humor. With Gunn's 2nd Annual poll results of the "50 Superheroes You Most Want to Have Sex With," the geek girls claim he is a slut-shaming, homophobic misogynist. I'm not sure if these girls and all the enraged commenters following the article have actually seen Super. But it seems clear that like Eddie Murphy or almost any other successful comedy writer, Gunn generally makes light of everyone equally.
But what do you think?

Does Gunn's list and humor strike you as intolerant and offensive? Is it exactly what you expect from Gunn's past work? And can we all agree that however Gunn's comments on the list strike you, he clearly has an impressive awareness of the Marvel (and DC) superhero mythology, and that he will bring a unique comic sensibility to GotG?
