So an interesting test for that hypothesis is to repeat this same analysis on a different media form that is less exposed to a young, male, global citizen's prejudice and instead identify forms that are targeted at the type of audiences who are more ready to accept strong characters no matter their gender, race, sexual inclination, age etc...

A few have commented that now the real art in moving pictures has moved to the big budget television series either made for networks or for stream services. If the transcripts for these products still show a bias towards a gender in forms that are targeted to a typically well off and educated, western audience, then we may still have structural bias.
