Her being married to a man doesn’t preclude her from being LGBTQ. Here’s the background you’re looking for: https://io9.gizmodo.com/marvel-misses-another-easy-representation-opportunity-w-1822929417
In before the heteros say this representation shouldn’t be shoehorned in.
the fact that he is just enchanted with her in a non-sexual way (my read) was amazing.:->
“For me it’s the combo of his voice, eyes and thick forearms”
Oh, thank god, you said forearms
Basically Josh Brolin. You can see his face through that make-up and cgi.
Thanos is hot. For me it’s the combo of his voice, eyes and thick forearms. Shame about the whole ‘wanting to wipe out half of all life in the universe’s thing, though.
Scruffy bearded Cap really does it for me, too
I’ve only dipped my toe into Jessica Jones (it’s so good, but so traumatic). Their diversity issues don’t deter me from watching. I definitely side-eye any show set in NYC that’s not diverse and this show is pretty decent about it. But I am uncomfortable where there are such strong white female leads and the…
Episode 3 of this season gave an interesting take on Xavier for sure. In Farouk’s eyes he’s just an ignorant white man who thought he knew better for those under Farouk’s thumb.
Luke Cage soundtrack = Dad’s mp3 collection
and will make her triumphant return in Avengers 4.
I’ve only listened through it once so far. To be honest, I was kind of disappointed at first, only because I absolutely love the sci-fi world-building and Cindi’s story, and I wanted more of it. I have since come around on it, once I realized exactly how personal it is for Janelle herself. Personal music is almost…
Great piece Charles.
We really need a downvote button.
The column in question. Reb is a bit off when he interprets OL’s as just window-dressing, though; in a way it’s worse than that. They do plenty of actual work but are perceived as glorified temps, because many older Japanese men (IE, the ones at the top of these companies) believe women are all destined to quit their…

ANN just published an interesting feature on the show’s Japanese context. In short, Retsuka is representing an “Office Lady,” or “OL,” a job whose only function is to sit there and look pretty, with any work being make-work meant the make the office look busy. The job being purely performative is why OL’s (and…
Thankfully, this isn’t coming out of nowhere like last time. With Coates’ run on Black Panther, Storm has consistently shown up as an ally of T’Challa’s, along with the other members of the Crew, and they’ve expressed the fact that they still have feelings for each other, even if they know that getting together would…
I was turned on to Janelle Monae damn near 10 years ago thanks to an i09 post, and I’ve been following her career ever since. I was even lucky enough to be in the front row of a set in the middle of the Chicago Blues Fest a few years back and it was an amazing experience. I can’t wait for this new album!
I already got the afrofuturist musical art film I was waiting for:
Second unit directors often go on to become first unit directors and so the more opportunities there are for historically marginalized creators to get those gigs, the better. At the same time, however, insisting that people from those groups must work their way up the ladder this way in order to “prove” that they…
