* GenreKiller: The failure of this and ''Film/{{Catwoman}}'' put an end to female-led action movies for several years, until ''Film/TheHungerGames'' and ''Film/{{Divergent}}'' franchises came along. It's widely thought that this is the reason Black Widow did not get a solo movie in the Franchise/MarvelCinematicUniverse, as well as other female superheroes having to be introduced as secondary characters in other movies. It took the [[Film/DCExtendedUniverse DCEU]]'s ''Film/{{Wonder Woman|2017}}'' to eventually prove that a female-led superhero movie can succeed critically.
