The world needs more Rebecca Hall! She’s a powerhouse in just about every film and show that she’s in; just wait until you catch her Sundance Film Festival 2020 selection The Night House.
While I do enjoy that Marvel movie a good deal, it’s abundantly clear that Hall’s character, Maya Hansen, was woefully underdeveloped and came no where close to maximizing Hall’s talents. As Adam Chitwood previous explained in his Iron Man 3 installment of his “How the MCU Was Made” series.
Hall was originally supposed to have a bigger role in the film but the folks in charge over at Marvel Entertainment weren’t having it. Director Shane Black explained, “There was an early draft of Iron Man 3 where we had an inkling of a problem. Which is that we had a female character who was the villain in the draft.”
Apparently he was told that this couldn’t stand because there were concerns that that toy wouldn’t sell as well if the character was female. Specifically, this was Marvel Entertainment CEO Ike Perlmutter‘s doing.
