So what can we expect from this neo-Hood? Some things have changed over the centuries. His Men sound less Merry and more martial. Another notable modification for these third-wave feminist times involves the movie’s Maid. Under Scott's lens, Marion has gone from virginal victim to warrior widow. Perhaps as an indication of changing gender roles, she has traded her distressed damsel act in for a sword on the battleground and a dagger in the bedroom. Although, in a well-researched Observer article, Vanessa Thorpe notes that these rebellious tendencies were in Marion’s mythology all along, but that in some cases they just got lost along the way.

Perhaps all Robin Hood’s animation took place behind the scenes between Crowe and Scott, who have become the bickering old married couple of movies. As an amusing side note: Crowe may be the common denominator in Scott’s films of late, but it is Sean Connery who fills this position for Robin Hood productions. Although Errol Flynn’s portrayal is probably the most celebrated, and Disney's boasted the most anthropomorphic animal toons, Connery has the distinction of being most frequently found in Robin films (Robin and Marian and Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves); and when he’s not in them, he sends his son (who portrayed Hood in the British TV series Robin of Sherwood).
