Sometimes the superhero and space movies are actually character-driven. Sci-fi tends to do a better job with that than just the typical big-budget action flick, but I hear what you are saying. One of the things that is helping with that is a few more female directors and female leads. It’s still not enough, but it’s a start. Both the Wonder Woman movie and the Captain Marvel one are good examples. I’ve written about both of them.
