Where are all the female-fronted superhero movies? It's a question that's made headlines week after week following the release of Marvel's "Avengers: Age of Ultron," and is further fueled by Taylor Swift's music video for "Bad Blood." Featuring more than a dozen female celebrities as action stars, superheroes and villains, it's a pseudo-eff you to the lack of badass roles for women these days.
"Star Trek" actor and general hero George Takei agrees:
Taylor Swift released her much anticipated video Bad Blood starring girl celebs as action stars. Come on Marvel, T. Swift is showing you up.

"Bad Blood" is produced by a woman (Swift), stars women (Swift and her girl gang) and has already raked in more than 21 million views on YouTube since its debut on Sunday night. Take note, Marvel.
