On the lookout for cheapy identical black and grey hoodies so I can replace the left black arm with a grey one then sew (print?) a red star on top of the new grey arm BOOM instant Winter Soldier hoodie
Why did we actually think this was a good idea??
Can we talk about how Cap and Bucky have opposite masks?
Cap has mouth and eyes exposed, forehead covered. Bucky has mouth covered and eyes painted black, his forehead exposed.
What a lovely symmetry.
But the symbolism too. Cap’s is a helmet, protection, to keep him safe from physical harm. Bucky’s is a muzzle to keep him silent and anonymous and on a leash.
Topic: DIVERSITY IN THE MARVEL UNIVERSE
Anthony Mackie: We’re in a day and age where kids deserve someone they can look up to. I’m very proud of Scarlett with what she’s been able to do with Black Widow, and how little girls can sit back and see that she doesn’t have to have superpowers, she’s just a badass. While being cool and a chick. And I like the fact that little brown kids can say, ‘hey, the Falcon is there now’, and little green kids can say, ‘the Hulk’s there’. Don’t want to leave out the Martians. I think it’s very important, and I think Marvel has been at the forefront of that, giving people the opportunity to represent every aspect of culture. It’s definitely something that was on the table, and on my mind when I decided to sign on to this project.
Topic: FANS COMPLAINING ABOUT CASTING ON GROUNDS OF RACE
Anthony Mackie: Superman, black would be the coolest dude in the world. Imagine Sam Jackson in a cape. Running around. That would be a good movie.
I think what a lot of people don’t get is, these people aren’t real. If you cast a black dude as John F Kennedy, that’s wrong. If you cast a white dude as Martin Luther King, that’s wrong. These people aren’t real. The suits aren’t real. There aren’t really superheroes in the world.
At some point in time, you have to steep yourself in reality and say, ‘hey, it’s not about what they look like, it’s about casting a good actor in the role. If you’re sitting at home and you can’t see a black guy as Nick Fury, maybe there’s something wrong with you.
We gotta get these bitches out of here.
#i feel like this is also an important showcase of the different tones of insult women face! #natasha is scary and strong and she takes down the bitches comment #because someone as unwilling to play the game as her would see it a lot #(like scarlet herself does whenever she speaks out about her bullshit treatment) #but pepper is someone who lives and breathes those powerplays#so she gets ”honey” she gets the sweet ones #we’re all on the same side here honey there’s no need to make that call #be sweet and soft and quiet know your place honey #and they’re both awful and sickening #and bad and unokay and you never doubt that! #the threat of violence is something natasha takes down easily #but pepper not bowing to a #air quotes #friendly piece of advice from a friend in the business #is just as amazing and strong #unimpressed ginger coalition more like do you see how easy it is to have two female characters #do you see how easy it is to have them interact #wow it’s like women are people and not a delightful array of barbies with slightly different dresses on
I rarely use this to just blog. I’m going to just blog now, so you can all just ignore this if it’s not to your liking.
Warning. Contents under pressure.
I have a date with a friend tomorrow to watch The Avengers with Joss Whedon commentary and then plans to marathon Cap 1 & 2 with heartandsleeves and cry together over twitter on the weekend when did this become my life
