David S. Goyer insulta a She-Hulk y a la comunidad geek

By Manuel Perez
Goyer: “She’s still pretty chunky. She was like Chyna from the WWE.”

Goyer sigue abriendo la boca y metiendo las patas. En el podcast Scriptnotes estaban invitados, ademas de David S. Goyer, la escritora de King Conan Andrea Berloff y los guionistas de Captain America: The Winter Soldier Christopher Markus y Stephen McFeely (Captain America: The Winter Soldier) en el episodio titulado “The Summer Superhero Spectacular.”

Entre varios temas el escritor de Man of Steel expreso lo que cree de personajes como She- Hulk, Martian Manhunter y los fanáticos del segundo personaje mencionado. Esto es parte de lo que hablo Goyer, el transcript es vía The Mary Sue:
“Graig Mazin: The real name for She-Hulk was Slut-Hulk. That was the whole point. Let’s just make this green chick with enormous boobs. And she’s Hulk strong but not Hulk massive, right? … She’s real lean, stringy…
David S. Goyer: She’s still pretty chunky. She was like Chyna from the WWE.
Mazin: The whole point of She-Hulk was just to appeal sexistly to ten-year-old boys. Worked on me.

Goyer: I have a theory about She-Hulk. Which was created by a man, right? And at the time in particular I think 95% of comic book readers were men and certainly almost all of the comic book writers were men. So the Hulk was this classic male power fantasy. It’s like, most of the people reading comic books were these people like me who were just these little kids getting the shit kicked out of them every day… And so then they created She-Huk, right? Who was still smart… I think She-Hulk is the chick that you could fuck if you were Hulk, you know what I’m saying? … She-Hulk was the extension of the male power fantasy. So it’s like if I’m going to be this geek who becomes the Hulk then let’s create a giant green porn star that only the Hulk could fuck.”

Además cuando se le pregunto sobre como traerían al personaje Martian Manhunter. Goyer realizo la siguiente pregunta, “¿Cuantos en la audiencia han escuchado de Martian Manhunter?” Pocas personas levantaron la mano, mientras que otros respondieron gritando o aplaudiendo. “¿Cuantos de los que levantaron la mano ha tenido sexo? respondió el escritor de Man of Steel a la audiencia. Inmediatamente explico la razón el cual, según él, el personaje no serviría en la pantalla grande
“Well, he hasn’t been rebooted but he’s a mainstay in the Justice League. He can’t be fucking called the Martian Manhunter because that’s goofy. He can be called Manhunter… The whole deal with Martian Manhunter is he’s an alien living amongst us… So he comes down to Earth and decides, unlike Superman who already exists in the world now, that he’s just going to be a homicide detective… So instead of using super-powers and mind-reading and like, oh, I could figure out if the President’s lying or whatever, he just decides to disguise himself as a human homicide detective. Dare to dream!”

Esto nos hace recordar el por qué Marvel Studios está haciendo mejores filmes que DC Comics al momento. Es una pena que Goyer haya dicho todo sin conocer exactamente quién es este personaje pero hay que darle el beneficio de la duda ya que puede ser un comentario que lo hizo intencional en forma en broma. Me gustaría ver cual será la reacción de Dan DiDio o Geoff Johns ante los comentarios ya que estos son los que representan a DC Comics al ocupar posiciones importantes en la compaña.
