In the attempted rape scene in RoboCop, writer Edward Neumeier originally had RoboCop shoot past the victim’s cheek, hitting and killing the rapist. While getting ready to shoot the scene as scripted, director Paul Verhoeven noticed how Donna Keegan’s (playing the rape victim) legs were spread apart, giving him the idea to have RoboCop shoot between her legs and hitting the rapist in the genitals. Neumeier loved the idea and that was how the scene was shot (x).

"Gina can land all 8 blows in a blistering 3 seconds. And how much does this maelstrom combine to generate? An amazing 4,800 pounds of force. That’s like a North Pacific giant octopus pounding you with all 8 of it’s arms. Translation: In 3 seconds, Gina could break your ribs, give you a concussion, shatter your nose, rupture your spleen, cause internal bleeding, and put you down for the count."
but women can’t be superheroes
Hey, it’s Gina Carano.
I still wish she was going to be Wonder Woman.
