Making Headlines - News From Different Shores

BBC has an interesting article about Dame Helen Mirren and a quote that's bound to go down in infamy about how Hollywood worships young men. She brings up some very interesting points, including how it's slowly starting to change this mentality, but not fast enough.

In other news, over at BCN, an article has popped up about Brenda Starr, the third long-standing female-starring comic strip is going kaputt.

It's news like this that makes me glad Marvel is using talented women in various industries to move their products forward, and attempting to give much respect to their female library of characters.

They've got Marjorie Liu on X-23 and Daken with more to follow.
This is in addition to Laurel K. Hamilton's Anita Blake: Vampire Hunter adaption series based on her novels. These are just two of the many women of Marvel. My apologies for not listing the many others who have done great work and still go unnoticed.

Speaking of Anita Blake, does anyone know what happened with the IFC movie that was talked about awhile back?
