Slash Film injects propaganda into their announcement of a movie based on Valiant's Faith

If a "plus-sized" heroine is really such a big deal to anyone (and I've got a feeling it's not, despite the social justice attempt to say otherwise), that's one thing, but the way Slash Film is presenting this is another, and their approach is quite insulting to lovers of fantasy:
People come in all shapes and sizes, so superheroes should too. While there have been plenty of male superheroes who haven’t had the traditional buff physique that a superhero has had in comic books, female comic book characters have often been drawn with unrealistic body proportions. They have super small waists and sizeable bosoms and backsides, creating unrealistic expectations, especially for younger, impressionable readers. But one superhero from Valiant Comics has tried to change that, and now she’ll get her own movie.

Faith is the first prominent plus-sized female superhero to grace the pages of Valiant Comics, and Sony Pictures has ordered a live-action adaptation of her comic book for the big screen. [...]
If it's really such a big deal to make a movie with a stout star, fine, but quit pushing that dumb propaganda that readers of any age are just brainless idiots being taken advantage of, or that there literally was never overweight folks of either gender in the medium. Let's remember Etta Candy from Wonder Woman's cast, shall we?

As for a movie based on Valiant's Faith, why do I get the vibe this'll turn out to be plagued with social justice propaganda? If that's the case, it'll be no surprise if it tanks at the box office.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
