Joanie Loves Chachi. Joey. Frasier. These characters were not only popular in their wildly popular original series, they were also major characters with long story arcs. The five people that saw Daredevil will remember that Elektra was a minor character who had maybe four scenes before she died. Yet, somehow her breasts have earned a spinoff.
The tagline for the movie is right. Whenever I see this trailer I die a little inside. I don’t have anything against Jennifer Garner, per se, but I don’t understand how she’s suddenly an action hero just because she’s kind of hot in different costumes and has a cinematographer that knows how to make her “martial arts” not look completely like a big steaming pile of Alphamonkey shit. The fights in Daredevil made Gymkata look like Fists of Legend. Above all she had almost no role in the movie before dying. Why does she get a spinoff?
So if you’re feeling a little too happy today, watch the trailer. It’s on Apple’s site, because I couldn’t bring myself to put it on ours.
