James Gunn is planning on having some fun with the superhero genre when he attacks using Rainn Wilson in this week's SUPER. It's bound to be angst & anxiety clothed in spandex, what with Ellen Page in the cast as well, but I thought I would take it a little more seriously. As in, I seriously love these women in their tight superchick garb.
After an Oscar win, it's best to put on a tight outfit and have audiences concentrate on you being a babe again (Natalie Portman is following this rule well by getting into medieval superchick garb next week in YOUR HIGHNESS), which is what Charlize Theron did when she dyed & cut those golden tresses into a sleek black bob and slithered into a tight black cat suit to play AEON FLUX. I never have bothered to watch this movie. The stills are enough for me to know Theron is as hot as she's ever been in it.
Because I'm not a comic book geek and I did harbor a Ben Affleck crush at one point (stfu, you know most of you dudes did too, during the JLo years), I happen to like DAREDEVIL. I happened to LOVE Jennifer Garner in those tight leather and whatnot outfits that she donned as Elektra, both in Ben's superhero outing and her critically panned box-office flop spin-off. She was that buff superchick who looked like she could kick your ass without the assistance of CGI. Yumm-O.
I could be adding ScarJo just because she's ScarJo and happened to score a role in the popular IRON MAN flicks as the scrumptious Black Widow, but here's the deal: I expected her to suck in the role. I thought she was surely just eye candy and it wouldn't have mattered to Favs if she could carry off the badass attitude to go with her super couture. But I liked her as Black Widow. I liked her a lot. And of course, it didn't hurt that she was extra-fine eye candy as well.
Which superchick is your personal kryptonite?
