Screen Talk: Comic-Con and Strong Women, from Gwendoline Christie to Amy Schumer's 'Trainwreck'

With Eric Kohn on vacation, Kate and I talk about Comic-ConZack Snyder’s “Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice,” which introduces Ben Affleck as Batman, Quentin Tarantino’s 70 mm western “The Hateful Eight,” in which Jennifer Jason Leigh is as tough as the men, Ryan Reynolds as Marvel’s R-rated “Deadpool,” David Ayer’s band of villains “Suicide Squad,” Guillermo del Toro’s gothic horror flick “Crimson Peak” and JJ Abrams’ “Star Wars: The Force Awakens,” and also about the current landscape for movie sites.

Women were a big topic at The Con, including lanky Brit Gwendoline Christie, who shined on the “Game of Thrones,” “Women Who Kick Ass” and “Star Wars” panels. We debate the merits of Judd Apatow and Amy Schumer’s “Trainwreck,” Woody Allen’s “Irrational Man,” Joshua Oppenheimer’s “The Look of Silence,” and the latest episode of “True Detective.” Is it actually getting better?
