Taika Waititi’s opinion Waititi is a master storyteller who does not sacrifice his feminist views for laughs You can bet that Feige’s ridiculous slams on Portman and her character Jane– disguised as “promotion” for WAITITI’S FILM– would have troubled him immensely This is a man with a Māori father who had to use his mother’s maiden name– Cohen– for earlier work because an indigenous last name kept him away from opportunity This man does NOT fuck around with entertainment that gets its power off of sexism and inequality He knows from experience just how infuriating it is when it comes to directors missing out on opportunities because they aren’t a white man So how does he fix this? How does he fix the idea that Jane Foster can’t go to space or that she’s not powerful enough for Thor the god of thunder? He makes her Thor Waititi saw Portman Jane Foster’s name dragged through the mud by Kevin Feige in order to promote his movie and when he got hired to direct again he decided to right those wrongs This picture means everything He is on his knee handing her Thor’s hammer essentially saying you will never have to go through that shit with me With me you’re a god And the expression on her face after Marvel attempted to break her doesn’t need words What a photo What a film What a man Meme
