"so I’m working on this new character and it comes down to this: how many pouches does he need and what color should his giant jacket/armor be?"

Original cover to Green Lantern #1 (DC Comics, July 1960) and a 1997 re-interpretation by Gil Kane. 

hey hal, I’m no lantern but can’t you just cut those strings? or light a match? It’s just a puppet.

When I first got this role I just cried like a baby because I was like, “Wow, next Halloween, I’m gonna open the door and there’s gonna be a little kid dressed as the Falcon.” That’s the thing that always gets me. I feel like everybody deserves that. I feel like there should be a Latino superhero. Scarlett [Johansson] does great representation for all the other girls, but there should be a Wonder Woman movie. I don’t care if they make 20 bucks, if there’s a movie you’re gonna lose money on, make it Wonder Woman. You know what I mean, ’cause little girls deserve that. There’s so many of these little people out here doing awful things for money in the world of being famous. And little girls see that. They should have the opposite spectrum of that to look up to.

this guy is rapidly ascending my list of COOL PEOPLE

"One of the earliest things my son noticed—he said, “I want to be Spiderman and I want to be light skinned so I can do all the things Spiderman does.” I was in shock. I immediately started googling things for him to see, other super heroes. And Black Panther was one of those for me, which is why I was happy to voice the character in the “Black Panther” animation for BET."

Djimon Hounsou on race and superheroes

Because representation matters. If a little boy sees nothing but white heroes, if a little girl sees nothing but men coming to rescue women, it affects how they see the world and themselves.

and if you hear stories like this and still complain about “forced diversity" or "enforced diversity" or write it all off as "political correctness" you are willfully ignoring the reality of people with less privilege than yourself. And that’s awful.

Just think about that moment when Captain America said “It appears to run on some sort of electricity” and everyone was reminded that airplanes were only 17 years old when Rogers was born.

that line does not get enough credit. it’s one of my favorites in the film.

Cap’s not being sarcastic, he wants to help. But everything he sees on that ship and everything Tony is talking about is completely alien to him.

so when he says that, it’s sincere and funny at the same time

This video catalogs almost every Easter egg in the Marvel Cinematic Universe

I only had time this morning to watch a few minutes’ worth and I saw a lot of stuff I didn’t know about, so consider checking this out. NOTE it only covers 2008-2013 films in the Phase 1/2/Avengers vein, so there’s no Spider-Man or X-Men here. And no spoilers for the latest movies which aren’t even on video yet.

OH!

wait

Paul Bettany is JARVIS and Vision? Are they now related, or just a case of “well we already like this actor, let’s have him do more”?

I never pictured Vision with a British accent…

Panel from Wonder Woman #279, May 1981

Diana asking the real questions

shots fired

seriously Hollywood, you LOVE fish-out-of-water protagonists
here’s a woman alone in our world and everything is weird to her
but she’s also a goddamn superhero
HOW ISN’T THIS ALREADY A MOVIE
