No disaster too small.
Hey there kids. I'm Chan.
You'll be seeing a whole lot of DC [Comics | Films | TV], Henry Cavill, and Rooster Teeth/Achievement Hunter stuff here.
I’ll stop reblogging this when it becomes irrelevant which will be never.
That this popped up on my dash, without irony, so soon after DC announced its slate of films, featuring films headlined by a woman, a Polynesian AND an African American, while Marvel has STILL not announced any release dates for films where the above are, if present, simply support for the straight, white, male headliner… amuses me. :-)
One could argue it’s still relevant, just not in the way it was originally intended to be.
DC is represented by a person of color, trying their hardest and still not getting any credit as Marvel, the white guy, brags about their perceived superiority when they aren’t actually working themselves nearly as hard as the person they’re bragging towards.I’m so sick of this bullshit. So fucking what? Congratulations DC! You are being diverse! Let’s praise DC for being diverse and start bashing marvel for not diversifying itself yet! Well guess what, the white guy is selling. Guess where Avengers ranks on highest grossing films? Number 3. Wanna know where Man of Steel ranks (the first movie in DCs cinematic universe)? Not even in the top 50. So yeah this is still relevant because Marvel is still dominating the box office. Idk who expects Marvel to deviate from their current strategy. If it ain’t broke don’t fix it.
Acting like money is more important than representing people.
Son, you ought to change your name because you’re doing a piss poor job of representing what Steve Rogers as a character is all about.
#holy shit dude money trumps diversity what?
#and thanks for adding that mackie quote
#b/c everyone was preaching that shit
#and now that it's happening you're gonna say it doesn't matter
#nah m8 fuck you

Ryan: No one has been seen dancing like this in a millennium!
Last Night in Ferguson (10.21.14): A state senator was arrested (and mama may have been legally packing), one of the lead organizers, nettaaaaaaaa, was roughed up by police, and one of the main sources of footage/live feeds, Rebel Z, was detained in what seems to have been an intimidation and straight up harassment tactic. The police are out of control, and it’s only getting worse. If you think this is over, you need to look again. #staywoke #farfromover
Ferguson is still happening. Are you still paying attention?
Ray Fisher on meeting his fellow Justice League members and Hollywood —
Ray Fisher was just as surprised as you that Cyborg would be getting a solo film. —
Sorry this ask has taken me so long. I have been really thinking on this ask. It’s really hard to get excited when you have been let down so much, I know. And the best answer I have is this: don’t think about the bad stuff, like MCU doing a bad job at female/poc rep (btw Civil War isn’t confirmed yet so hold on to that!) or Zack Snyder working on three WW-related movies. Think about how the WW, Cyborg, and Shazam movies haven’t had writers/directors announced yet, so we could get really good writers/directors. Think about how Stan Lee has said MCU is developing a Black Panther movie and how now that their main Superhero film rivals have slated comic movies with POC and Women as leads, the Disney/Marvel studios are going to start feeling the pressure to do the same. Also don’t forget they have a bunch of slotted movies they haven’t announced the titles of yet, so its possible they are planning a female-led or poc-led movie and haven’t announced it as yet. I know it is REALLY REALLY hard to stay positive and hopeful when we have been constantly fucked over by this community (especially by the studios and the publishers), but thinking positivelty is the only way I see to keep up my positivity and stay excited. It may not work for you (which is totally valid, we shouldn’t HAVE to stop thinking about the bad stuff like Zack Snyder being in charge of movies involving Wonder Woman), but I hope I kind of helped?
I don’t get it. I’m really really really frustrated. Like it’s one thing to not dig Man of Steel for whatever reason, but to send an ask to a tumblr named “comicbookmisogyny” bitching about the team behind Man of Steel, straight up the most purely feminist comic book movie I have ever seen, being in charge of Wonder Woman. This is not objectively bad news. I mean, they released the costume, which is beautiful, real, and respectful as fuck, I just- like what is the problem here? There are potential land mines everywhere, there would have been no matter who makes this movie, but there’s nothing as of yet to indicate that Zachary Snyder or anyone else associated with the project has conclusively stepped on one. So I guess I’m going to need some elaboration on the whole “I’m pissed because the MoS team is using Wonder Woman in THREE movies.”

#and it appears that this is one of those times
#tiredness. disappointed in yourself for not starting sooner. anger at groups. the impending doom of the exams just around the corner.
#it's that time
