What do women want?

(famously, Freud asked).

In this case, we have an excellent, strong, story that doesn't happen to have any females in it. Many females (as well as males) love it, because it's a good story, well-told, with interesting characters.

I, at least, resent a bunch of marketing types trying to manipulate this story to "satisfy demographics" of any kind. Insertion of fighting females for marketing reasons that have nothing to do with the story being told weakens the story and makes all fans of the story resentful. This tale doesn't need any stereotypes, whether they're "damsels" or kick-butt warrior females. It needs to make good use of the characters it has.
