While Sarah may have risen to fame using her powers on Buffy the Vampire Slayer, she says the public no longer shows that kind of support for female superhero flicks.
Since the show wrapped in 2003, Sarah says she's noticed a change, especially when it comes to the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
"Genre is where women can really succeed and hold an audience," Sarah said in an interview with the Guardian. "Every time a Marvel movie tries to do a female cast, it just gets torn apart."
She continued, "Unfortunately, audiences weren’t as accepting."
On top of that, the Ms. Marvel series was also review-bombed on IMDb, leaving it with just a 6.2/10.
Sarah noted that many audiences are still stuck on the stereotypical idea that superheroes need to be a male figure — as opposed to a woman.
"There’s still this mentality of 'the male superhero,' this very backwards way of thinking," Sarah said.
Looking back on her time on Buffy, Sarah says there's an important lesson in the show's finale.
"I love the ending. I love the fact that the whole idea was that every girl who wants the power can have the power. Isn't that the ultimate lesson?" Sarah concluded.
Here's to giving more girls powers on the big screen!
