Casting Joss Whedon’s Batgirl – Hollywood Talk – Sarcastard Review
Now that Joss Whedons has been announced to direct Batgirl as part of the DC universe for Warner Bros. List of 5 possible actresses to star. Emma Roberts, Shailene Woodley, Emilia Clarke, Jane Levy, and Emily Blunt.
We bristle when someone says they don’t watch Grease because they take umbrage with the changes Sandy (Olivia Newton-John) needed to make in order to impress Danny (John Travolta). But the reality as we see it is the situation was the other way around and Danny was the one making the sacrifices to impress Sandy.
To start Sandy was not just trying to impress Danny she’s also trying to impress the Pink Ladies. They were the ones making fun of her mannerisms and appearance during the Sandra Dee song. Not Danny. And Danny never asked her to change, he wanted to date Sandy the way she was, it was Danny’s friends that made things difficult by putting her down.
Essentially the “change” Sandy made was a makeover that was done in a day. She didn’t do it just to be with Danny she also did it to fit in with the Pink Ladies and the T-Birds and it was a change that easy could be reversed. She changed because she didn’t like the crowd she did fit in with and wanted to fit in with a different crowd. Not just to impress Danny. And she had support from the Pink Ladies in doing this, she wasn’t going against her friends interests.
On the other hand Danny’s change was more significant and was just for Sandy. He went through numerous sports before he found one that he could letter in because he thought that would make Sandy happy. And he made this change knowing that it was an interest the other T-Birds did not share and would mock him for.
So Danny put more effort into his change than Sandy did, he did it just for her while Sandy did it to fit in with the crowd, and he did it with no support and facing ridicule from friends while Sandy did it with support and not risking ridicule from people she would consider friends.
Please consider this the next time you want to roll your eyes and complain that Sandy had to “Change for her man” she didn’t. Also it was the 50’s, get over it.
