'I think we could, it’s a matter of when. It’s a matter of what are those dates, it’s a matter of juggling multiple, successful franchises. Is there a downside to managing multiple, successful franchises? I believe we’re figuring out that there is, which is having the time to do them all. So, at what point do we hold back a franchise or have three or four years between parts of a franchise in order to introduce new ones? Or do you introduce new ones within the body of the films? We’re looking at all those things right now.'"

Kevin Feige’s response when asked if Marvel is open to a Black Panther movie or a movie with a female lead.

Excuses. “Matter of when”, “matter of juggling franchises”. But it’s so easy to throw up Ant Man and Guardians of the Galaxy? One movie that nobody wanted and another movie that appears to have no connection at all to the current MCU? But as long as there are white male leads, you can make all the plans you want. Give me a break.

When will it ever be the precise, correct time for a blockbuster superhero movie with a black lead? Or a female lead? Or god forbid a woman of color? When?

Now. The answer is now. The time is now. Get the fuck off your high horse, Kevin Feige, and start acknowledging us as people.

#whatever no i'm going to reblog this. #and add my own commentary in these tags re ant man tbh. #because i think we can all agree gotg is probably going to do well. #for a number of reasons including that people wanted it. #but when it first got announced ( so way before any trailers made me sing hooked on a feeling tbh ) i was concerned it'd do badly. #it had the fantastic cast no doubt but i remember thinking i was going to have to wait in line for thor at midnight. #i didn't. SO I'VE LEARNED TO HAVE NO EXPECTATIONS WHEN IT COMES TO WHAT TIME SHOULD I GET THERE FOR A MIDNIGHT RELASE. #just guess and hope it goes well. #but i digress. #the thing about ant man is that the only thing it has going for it is that it's marvel. #and everyone sees marvel movies. not just diehard fans of comics and not just fans of comics in general. and that's a good thing because it #keeps the franchise going like a truck or something. #but ant man sounds stupid and likely will not look as visually amazing as gotg. #i'll eat my words if it is but even that concept art is a little um in my opinion. #so the base level of low box office turn out in the mcu goes to the incredible hulk but that was at the beginning no surprise there. #the next is first avenger and then thor comes afterward. #first avenger as much as i loved it suffered from being set in the '40s and being basically the last set up piece in phase one. #thor was a bit like gotg in that IT LOOKED PRETTY but also he's not human and ??? #( i don't know people are weird but i had to sell the movie to my mother using chris hemsworth's body so. ) #then there's ant man. who had an original release date that looked more like the iron man 3 and thor 2 schedule. #and is now supposedly going to be released like two months after age of ultron #supposedly. lord knows that it might change. #but ant man wasn't something people wanted. #( and personally i don't know if i should be thankful it doesn't look like janet'll be in this or not. ) #but people want black widow ( or ms. marvel or both ) and people want black panther. #and yet the earliest we could look at anything for any of those is 2017. #and that's being optimistic. #because i'd bet good money on thor 3 being one of those and unless ant man does piss poor ( which i want and don't want ) it'll get one of t #you have to leave one open for avengers 3. #and doctor strange will probably get one.

Crazy

Crazy (Gnarls Barkley Cover) - Daniela Andrade

The beauty of covers are that the cheery R&B style of Gnarls Barkley can be transformed into a heartfelt acoustic song. Daniela Andrade’s uses her wonderful voice to illuminate the sublime beauty of the lyrics. After listening to this I realized that Crazy is about the insanity of life, the people who think they are control but aren’t, and the solace we can find in accepting the world in all of its crazed glory. I love this cover so much.

I remember when I lost my mind. There was something so pleasant about that place.”

So I found this harlequin romance paperback today, and normally I just toss those right over without paying them much mind, but the cover of this one made me pause. Sure that the artist was just taking liberties, I checked out the back.

I’m dubious. I should read a passage:

It is a literal bear.
Okay yeah I’ll admit it I’m going to read this but only because it sounds like the most fucked up romance novel in existence.
But wait….

You have some explaining to do, Canada.

You guys don’t understand. Screw it being a bestseller, 50 Shades of Gray is a bestseller, this book won the Governor General’s Award. That’s the highest literary award in Canada. That’s the pulitzer prize of Canadian literature. Bear is a part of Canadian literary history.

HOLY MOLY.


i had to read this book in uni for my first year Canadian literature class. When we first heard of it we were like, “Oh the Bear’s a metaphor or some shit.” but then one kid read ahead, and was like, “Guys, no, she literally fucks the bear. She fucked a bear.”

For better or worse, Tony Stark has devised a plan that won’t require him to put on the Iron Man suit anymore, and should allow Captain America, Thor, Black Widow, Hawkeye, and the Hulk to get some much needed R&R as well. His solution is Ultron, self-aware, self-teaching, artificial intelligence designed to help assess threats, and direct Stark’s Iron Legion of drones to battle evildoers instead.
The only problem? Ultron lacks the human touch, and his superior intellect quickly determines that life on Earth would go a lot smoother if he just got rid of Public Enemy No. 1: Human beings."
