The "curve of underbreast" was too much for the Motion Picture Association of America to handle, but for comic book fans, it's too little.
A recent poster promoting the upcoming Sin City sequel, Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, has caused a divde between the Motion Picture Association of America and fans of comic book movies. According to an article on PageSix.com, the following poster was rejected by the MPAA "for nudity — curve of under breast and dark nipple/areola circle visible through sheer gown."
But while the MPAA seems to think that Eva Green is too sexy in this image, comic book fans are saying the poster isn't sexy enough!
"Look at her breasts," complained Angus MacStickinbutt, a comic book fan. "They're no bigger than her head! She's no Wonder Girl, I'll tell you that." MacStickinbutt also pointed out that Green was not contorting her body so as to better display her buttocks along with her breasts.
"That poster is tamer than 90% of the comic book covers from Marvel and DC featuring female characters," he continued. "And I don't see anyone complaining about those."
When we pointed out that people complained about those all the time, MacStickinbutt was unmoved. "Those people are just prudes who want to return to the days of the Comics Code Authority," he insisted.
At press time, MacStickinbutt was reportedly viewing hardcore pornography on the internet and lamenting the fact that it was nowhere near as titillating as DC's latest round of Bombshell variant covers.
