Rereading Is Thor a Feminist Movie? (Yes) this week over at the Social Justice League made me want to draw a billionty pictures of Jane and Darcy blowing the Bechdel Test out of the fuckin’ water. I loved Thor from the first time I saw it, but this little article makes me love it more and more every time I read it. Or maybe feel increasingly justified in my love. Either way - Branagh you beautiful beast, thank you for subverting the superhero genre in so many wonderful ways.(alsothankyouforLoki)
I also love that fandom has decided that these two are this wonderfully compatible odd couple - looking out for each other and being awesome friends. So yeah, Jane & Darcy pre-Thor, just bumming around in their comfy sweaters, drinkin’ coffee and eatin’ poptarts, talking about science, movies, the internet, whatever. Just like real women.
I friend!ship these two so hard. Seriously though, can we come up with a better feminine form for ‘Bromance’ than ‘Homance’?
