You never heard of Iron Man and Green Lantern? I've probably read five comics in my life and I heard of both.
Did you know Tintin and Asterix though?

'cause they're huge over here.

The logic has nothing to do with brand recognition and everything to do with the belief that people won't go see action movies starring women.
Like The Hunger Games, the Twilight saga, or all those James Cameron movies? Yeah, nobody went to see those.
Those were not action movies. They were romance movies with action elements. If they can create a romance for WW they may have something.
Well he's right at least Cameron has made action films starring women... decades ago. But I'm not talking about whether or not successful action films with female leads exist (because there are) but that Hollywood believes they would not make the money they want on those pictures.
