Scarlett Johansson's New Role May Be A Transgender Man & Twitter Has Thoughts UPDATE
Bustle ^ | July 3, 2018 | KELLY SCHREMPH

Posted on 07/03/2018 4:19:49 PM PDT by EdnaMode

With the final Avengers movie set for release in May 2019, Scarlett Johansson is ready to look for new and exciting characters to play. In fact, according to ScreenCrush, Johansson is gearing up to reunite with her Ghost in the Shell director, Rupert Sanders, in a new project titled Rub & Tug. However, the star's role in the film is being met with some controversy, particularly because Johansson's new role may be a transgender man.

UPDATE: Scarlett Johansson issued this comment to Bustle via a representative: "Tell them that they can be directed to Jeffrey Tambor, Jared Leto, and Felicity Huffman's reps for comment."

EARLIER: Rub & Tug will tell the fascinating story of a massage parlor owner in 1970s Pittsburg whose business served as a front for prostitution in the red light district. Johansson is set to star as said parlor owner, Dante "Tex" Gill, who The Hollywood Reporter describes as "a woman [Jean Marie Gill] who succeeded in Pittsburgh's 1970s and 1980s massage parlor and prostitution business by assuming the identity of a man, Dante 'Tex' Gill." However, other publications like Vulture have described Johansson's character as a "transmasculine crime boss," while others, like the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, called the real-life Gill a lesbian "who dressed like a man in suits and ties, wore short hair and sideburns and preferred to be called 'Mr. Gill.'"

All three of these descriptions are somewhat different, and depending upon which one is more accurate, could prove highly problematic for Johansson. The obituary for Gill alleged that "she may even have undergone the initial stages of a sex change that made her appear masculine."

You may be right. Hollywood is going to keep pushing the limits until they go broke.

Let me be crass. Scarlett is a very attractive woman. So, besides angry feminists, LGBTQMOUSE activists, and some soy-boi metrosexuals, who wants to go see her butch it up?

Wait just a minute. SHE succeeded tricking HER customers even when the pants came off?

I doubt Avengers 4 will be the last. Those movies make too much money. Apparently, a solo Black Widow movie is in the works.

I agree with others: starring in a role that emphasizes sexual confusion would be a bad choice for her.

I would guess this pic was taken between scenes and she was airing out her “glow” from that literally hot suit.

Scarlett Johansson has revealed she wore nothing underneath her leather catsuit when filming new movie Avengers Assemble because it was too sweaty.

Someone has convince Scarlett that this is the way to ‘break the mold! Defy the Patriarchy!”. Scarlett’s net worth is over $100. Million Dollars as of 2018. So, she may be approaching movie roles as a casual hobby at this point in her life.
Somebody probably asked her to do a new director or producer a favor, knowing the Johansson face and name would garner quick attention.

Look at her mother, Melanie Sloane. Very lovely brunette.
I thought they were sisters.

Great headline:

Scarlett Johansson continues problematic streak, will play a trans man

"Problematic streak" ...

I gather that what's "problematic" is that people thought an Asian should have had her role in The Ghost in the Shell and a trans-person should have her part in the upcoming movie, but you could easily think that her appearing in lousy movies is what's "problematic."

Maybe she’s playing a man who becomes a woman.

Scarlett is a shoe-in for next year’s Maxwell Klinger Award for the Best Artificial Imitation Transgender Performance.

I don’t care how they play it I don’t think that SJ can come off as a male no matter the makeup.
