Kevin craves for content and he tries to project the comic universe in the most believable way possible so that it gives justice to comic reader’s expectations from a movie.
Since female oriented superhero movies were not that successful in the past, Kevin pointed that it has nothing to do with gender but with content. The material was not good enough which was projected. One of the best example that can be seen recently is ” Wonder Woman”. Film making is basically elevating the content from comics, books and scripts. Screenplay plays a major role here.
If a particular scene is not contributing towards making the story go forward or interesting and gripping we need to do away with it.

To match up to that we need to be perfect and no less.
