Question of the day

May 17, 2016

Our last question asked: According to Shane Black, how did a toy completely change Iron Man 3? A character's gender was changed to male due to fears that a toy version of a female villain wouldn't sell as well. Le Sigh.

Congratulations to KPMG's Ron Casalotti for being the very first to answer that correctly (and for noting "even though we're talking about, essentially, dolls"). Honorable mentions go out to Ken Walker (who wonders "Because the shelves are filled with Guy Pearce toys? ... Or are they? Seriously, I don't know."), Craig PittmanCindi Lash and Mark Gibbs for all getting that right, as well.

As for today's question, here it is: Speaking of gender issues, what recently happened to a female weathercaster that's causing a ruckus in social media?
