Caitlyn Jenner lined up to play ’21st Century Woman’
On Monday, Caitlyn Jenner, once known as Bruce, appeared on the cover of Vanity Fair. Accompanied by the headline “Deal With It, narrow-minded Republicans.” Ms. Jenner, photographed in a Wonder Woman styled corset, became an instant sensation on social media when the article went live, with Jack Nicholson tweeting, “Call me Caitlyn, seriously.”
As Bruce Jenner, she lived quite an eventful life. Winning gold at the Olympics, threatening Donald Trump, appearing on the cover of Playgirl, writing, acting and eventually fulfilling the threat and punching Donald Trump.
Representing a very deliberate move, the Vanity Fair photo-shoot heralds Ms. Jenner’s move into the world of superheroes, quite literally. As she prepares for a new life as a woman, Jenner has been lined up to play 21st Century Woman. “If Bruce Wayne had changed gender and joined some sort of feminist movement, 21st Century Woman would have been the result. Think Suffragettes meets She-Hulk,” said a jubilant Jenner.
When asked about the issues her character will be facing, the most-discussed woman in America replied: “The female contingent need a strong role model, a contemporary icon. Yes, Supergirl, Jean Grey, Storm, Power Girl and Ellen DeGeneres once filled the void, but a new face is needed. This new breed of superhero will fight ISIS on a Monday, workplace inequalities on a Tuesday, do Pilates on a Wednesday, rescue Greece from economic turmoil on a Thursday, then assassinate Rush Limbaugh on a Friday. Weekends are strictly reserved for family and friends.”
Ever since the gender transition, according to numerous reports, the 21st Century Woman rumor has been discussed, and insiders believe the plan is to have not just Batman and Superman in the blockbuster film but, according to Caitlyn Jenner, “some members of the Justice League as well, maybe even The Flash.”
21st Century Woman: The Pursuit of Happiness is tentatively scheduled for a July 2017 release.
