It’s not just that Chloe Zhao‘s Eternals has shitty aggregate ratings (49% Rotten Tomatoes, 53% Metacritic) as well as the lowest-ever score for a Marvel film; it’s also being trashed because presumably toxic males don’t like it when a woman directs an action film. I haven’t hate-watched it yet — does Davis have a point?
#Eternals has the lowest Rotten Tomatoes score of any MCU film. “I think this speaks to a larger problem…any time a woman takes on the action genre, people come harder at that filmmaker,” says @ByClaytonDavis. | Variety The Take presented by @AppleTV https://t.co/XFigklsxMg pic.twitter.com/X0J0Nrn8Fj
