As previously noted, Maggie Q will play the newest iteration of the Nikita character on the CW next fall. I obviously didn’t see last night’s screening at Comic-Con, but I think it’s safe to say that it featured a thin, 100-pound Asian woman doing some or all of the following: running in high heels, knocking out men with a single punch or kick, and accurately firing a large-caliber pistol with one hand (possibly while running in high heels). Hollywood is great at realism.
Anyway, there’s also a new poster for the show, and it effectively delivers the message that “Nikita” will be about legs and guns. Long, shapely half-Asian legs and guns. Well, the guns are long and shapely as well, but hopefully not half-Asian. Asians might be good at math and industry, they don’t make very good firearms. Anyway, long story short, I’d like to wear Maggie Q like a hat.
