This research investigates if it is easier to adapt male superheroes to commercially successful films, using the adaptation of X-Men as a case study. Reviewing existing interviews and sales data identifies concerns affecting the selection of film protagonists. These concerns are compared to stereotypical gender differences in X-Men comics that inspired the films. This analysis finds that because of these differences, male superheroes can more easily be adapted than female superheroes, to commercially successful films.
