The name of Sarah Michelle Gellar will forever be associated with the legendary television series ‘Buffy the Vampire Slayer’, but it’s been 20 years since it came to an end and she has obviously continued working. The actress is currently in the middle of the promotion phase of Wolf Packwhich has been used to criticize the machismo of many fans of superhero movies.
In an interview with The Guardian, Gellar stressed that it is in the “genre works can succeed and attract the public” -remember that we could also see her in titles like ‘Scream 2’ either ‘I Know What You Did Last Summer’-, but at the same time he has highlighted the big problem that exists in everything related to superhero movies:
Every time a Marvel movie tries to make a movie with women, they rip it apart. Unfortunately, the public did not accept it so well. There is still the male superhero mentality, a very retrograde way of thinking.
Taking into account the review-bombing campaigns suffered by titles like ‘Captain Marvel’, ‘Ms. Marvel’ or ‘She-Hulk: Lawyer She-Hulk’ it’s hard to doubt these harsh statements from Gellar. Of course, among those who criticized them, there are also people who simply believe they are bad, but in some situations it seemed that they came with hatred from home.
She doesn’t plan to be Buffy again.
Finally, the actress too completely ruled out a possible return of his to the character of Buffy Summers. She does agree that “there are more stories to tell”, but she does not want to be a part of it and thus explains her reasons:
I am very happy with what I have contributed. Even if he did a cameo, it would only be compared. You want to give someone the opportunity to create from scratch.
