    I have no conceptual problem with gender reversed reboots, even if a swap of Indiana jones starts to feel a bit like tomb raider, e.g, however, id rather see that creative energy and talent be put into creating novel content that has a powerful female heroine– otherwise you always end up making “the female version of ____” instead of something new that happens to feature a female lead. At the end of the day though, I just am inherently skeptical of reboots (especially of things that are timeless already), and want to see “this generation’s Ben hur”… Without it being a remake of the original Ben hur
