2nd season of Jessica Jones uses women directors for all episodes out of progressive politics
Rosenberg said that in the second season of the superhero show, she had wanted to increase the number of female directors — a goal that Marvel was completely on board with, she noted. Given how in-demand many women directors are these days, she and her fellow producers had set their sights on booking women first, she said, and contracting male directors later in the pre-production process.Which is ridiculous when you consider that there were tons of TV and film directors in the past who worked on the same topics as Jessica Jones features, and turned out successful products. Truth Revolt says:
But then someone else involved in the production — she didn’t specify who — floated the idea of booking only women as directors. Rosenberg was honest about the fact that she hadn’t contemplated that concept prior to that conversation, but she said she quickly jumped at the opportunity.
SJW's have largely been celebrating the news, completely ignorant of the sad reality that none of the women hired to direct Season 2 can ever boast better talent than their male counterparts because they never actually beat them in the competition. If getting to direct in Hollywood were like The Hunger Games, then the odds were very much in their favor on this gig.And Bendis, if it matters, is one such person. A guy whose take on women in the Avengers and X-Men, in contrast to whatever positive qualities the Netflix series may or may not boast, is quite awful. It's also idiotic to just assign female directors to films and TV shows starring women, and if Bigelow can manage movies with male stars, then so can other women, and just as importantly, male directors can manage products with lady stars too. The progressive approach used in the Jessica Jones TV show is making look like a joke.
"Anyone who thinks that this kind of progressive approach to filmmaking isn’t necessary is almost assuredly a man," reported one blogger. "The stories of double standards being applied to women in Hollywood are too many to count and it will take showrunners like Rosenberg taking aggressive (and yes, political) stands like this to help balance the scales."
The whole point of storytelling is transplanting people outside of their personal bubbles and onto a universal plain of human experience, which is why women directors like Kathryn Bigelow can make thrilling male-dominated action films like The Hurt Locker and James Cameron can make a love story like Titanic. There's a common ethos that humans instinctively know, and all of us can tap into it, regardless of race or gender. But that sort of inclusiveness doesn't fit the agenda of the left's identity politics.
Also, for the record, note that most ladies Marvel's hiring at the moment (and possibly DC) have otherwise only been assigned to series starring women, and none to books like Spider-Man or Captain America, if at all (though with the way those series have already been ruined by progressive politics, it wouldn't make any difference). It all goes to show how their employment approach is absurdly symbolic and token only.
