Iron Fist has already been cast according to Mike Colter (Luke Cage



In an interview with Collider, Luke Cage was asked if he was excited about the scenes between his character and Iron Fist, Luke Cage's best friend, to which he replied:

"The actor has been cast, but he’s in a basement somewhere. When the time is right, they’ll let him up and tell him where he is. I am [excited]. I’ll get a nice little break, after doing Jessica Jones and Luke Cage. Whether I’m in [his show], I don’t know, but there’s The Defenders."

So it looks like Marvel is just waiting for the right time to announce the casting. It should be noted that Ryan Phillipe has reportedly been in talks with Marvel for the role, and other beige names like Alain Moussi have also been thrown around in the rumor mill regarding the casting.

Trailer for unreleased Wendy Williams biopic "Queen of Media" leaks



Stars Robin Givens, this was supposed to come out right around the time the talk show launched but they ended up scraping it. When you watch the trailer you'll see why. Cringe worthy gems include

  • The low budget production value

  • Wendy snorting coke and smoking a straight shooter at work

  • "I promise never to take a laxative before going on air again"

  • A reenactment of her infamous fight with Angie Martinez

  • Bad Diddy impersonator

Men get butthurt over Barbie redesign, demand "Dad Bod Ken"



In case you missed the post yesterday Mattel has announced that they are now making more diverse Barbies. The new line has various options for dolls including different body types, seven different skin tones, twenty-two different eye colors and twenty-four different hairstyles making it easier for kids to find dolls that look like them.

BUT WHAT ABOUT MEN?!?!

While Mattel received a lot of praise about the new variety of dolls dudes quickly took over the conversation, because of course they did, demanding that Mattel also make a Dad Bod Ken.

Collapse )

For what it's worth, Mattel hasn't been unanimously praised either. Kelsey Miller of Refinery29 officially dubbed the new dolls as problematic™.

"Just like OG Barbie, Curvy Barbie is problematic," she claimed. "First of all, she's curvy, a somewhat dated euphemism for all plus-size women, implying that if you're not thin, then you'd better be a voluptuous hour glass."

Marvel CEO Donates $1M to That Comemierda Trump's Transparent Bid for Good Press


Fan art by Matt Stefani

Trump skipped out on the last GOP debate before the Iowa caucus and instead held a fundraiser for veterans at the same time. Marvel CEO Ike Perlmutter and his wife were in attendance and donated $1 million to Trump's cause. Perlmutter's rep said, "The Perlmutters are thrilled to support their friend Donald Trump in his efforts to help veterans."

So maybe their donation isn't going directly to Trump*, but it's certainly helping his cause. And they already donated $2 million to Marco Rubio's campaign, and Marco Rubio is also a turd so...

Will you be boycotting Marvel? Skipping out on Deadpool? Writing to your senator about campaign finance reform?

UPDATE: The Federalist is reporting that donations from Trump's fundraiser last night are going to Trump's personal foundation. Pretty shady. Thanks mwffj

Adnan Syed's Post-Conviction Hearing Has Been Scheduled

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

A post-conviction hearing has been scheduled for Adnan Syed, who was convicted of the 1999 murder of his girlfriend, Hae Min Lee.

When Syed's case was profiled by Sara Koenig for the podcast Serial, it quickly gained notoriety and helped make Serial the most popular podcast ever created. Koenig unearthed a potential alibi witness who was never contacted by Syed's defense attorney, and questioned the reliability of cell phone records used to convict Syed.

Syed's motion to re-open post-conviction hearings was granted in November of last year.

His post-conviction hearing is scheduled for next week.

ONTD Original: The Best to Worst Debut Pop Music Videos


Inspired by Gigi Hadid's music video (feat. mediocrely enthused Zayn Malik), this list looks back on the debut pop music videos of the industry's now notable artists.  Videos are rated and ordered based on "star power" (which is based on how likely it seems based on the video that they'd rise up against their contemporaries) and production quality.

Note: Artists are based on their first MV as a solo lead artist and MVs were chosen by the ordered videography date on their Wikipedia pages.  Singers such as Taylor Swift who debuted in a non-pop genre are not included.

Super Bowl 50 Roundup (plus two losing teams who will not be going)



Cam Newton, bae QB for the Carolina Panthers, recently (accurately) stated that part of the reason he is so heavily criticized for his celebrations and jovial attitude is the fact that he's black and there's currently no black quarterback of his caliber to compare him to: " His celebrations and success have led to a TON of racist criticism and criticism that is thiny veiled racism. People have called him classless and cocky, depsite the fact that white quarterbacks and players get away with the same things.

In other news, both the Carolina Panthers and the Denver Broncos will pay for all their employees, including interns to go to the game.

Taryn Manning in legal battle with makeup artist



Holly Hartman, her former makeup artist, filed a restraining order against Taryn Manning, alleging that in November of last year, she was:

- headbutted
- sprayed in the face with Windex
- put into a headlock

TMZ reports that according to Hartman, Manning also said at one point, “Pick a knife. I’m wearing a white shirt; there will be a lot of blood. You will be famous for killing Taryn Manning.”

Taryn Manning's lawyer had this to say: “The court has already denied the request by Ms. Hartman for a temporary restraining order. The application for the order is suspect because Ms. Manning has had no contact with Ms. Hartman in many months due to Ms. Hartman’s actions against Ms. Manning which are currently under criminal investigation in multiple jurisdictions. These investigations have long predated these entirely fabricated allegations. Ms. Hartman is under investigation for stalking Ms. Manning and for theft and other crimes. It is clear that Ms. Hartman’s camp has leaked these allegations which were not available publicly to elevate her own position and obscure her own wrong doing.”

Coldplay/Beyoncé's new MV is "reminiscent of the West's myopic view of India"



Coldplay (feat. Beyoncé) just released their latest MV, for the song Hymn for the Weekend. The video was shot in Mumbai, India, last October.

There was a big deal in Indian media over an appearance by Bollywood A-lister Sonam Kapoor in the video, but it turns out she's in it for a total of 2 seconds (3:36-3:37). Now she's getting dragged ("I guess the director agrees with us about Sonam's acting skills", says DNA India). The broadsheet did not have a kind view of the MV overall or Beyoncé's part in it:

The video’s visuals are reminiscent of the West's myopic view of India where poverty meets mysticism in Bollywood along with a mishmash of colours. Not that we had high hopes of that they would truly capturing the ethos of a different land. [...]

The video sees Chris do random desi stuff like travelling in a black and yellow taxi (getting overcharged, we assume) and playing instruments, while people around him play Holi. Beyonce is there playing a character called Rani who we assume is a film star (USA Today called her an earth goddess), but actually looks like Xerxes’ long lost sister with all the jewellery on her face reminiscent of Frank Miller’s 300.


Check the video out under the cut:

New interview with Gargoyles creator Greg Weisman




Some highlights:

On the show's diversity: "Diversity was always important to me, but working on Gargoyles was where the problem of a lack of diversity in cartoons first sort of crystalized for me. Things we were doing casually, like making Elisa Maza a woman of color, were being hailed as revolutionary, which was both cool and disappointing at the same time." He also says he is constantly evolving in this area.

On how he wants Gargoyles to be remembered: Is proud of the show's two lead villains, Demona and Xanatos, "who I think were unlike any other villains on television in those days." Is also a fan of Goliath and Elisa's relationship, and "of the series' expanding universe of true history, multi-cultural mythology, fantasy, science fiction, Shakespeare, etc."

On the show's unpopular third season, The Goliath Chronicles, where he was replaced after the first episode: Doesn't consider it to be canon, but doesn't blame the new writers or story editors because their schedule was tight and they didn't really get a chance to watch many of the older episodes. "I don’t think the new producer who took the place of myself and Frank Paur was interested in telling the kinds of stories that we had told over the first two seasons. I’m not sure ABC was interested in that either... The network wanted the marquee value of the Gargoyles name. But not our brand of storytelling."

On the future of Gargoyles: "A Gargoyles cinestory volume, adapting our five-part pilot story is coming out from Joe Books soon. Hopefully, it’ll lead to new, original Gargoyles materials down the line."

On his current work: He is currently writing two comic book series for Marvel, Star Wars: Kanan, and Starbrand & Nightmask. He also has two novels, Rain of the Ghosts and Spirits of Ash and Foam, and an AudioPlay version of Rain, which features twenty actors (including Brent Spiner, Ed Asner and Marina Sirtis).

FIFTH HARMONY ARE BACK TO WORK YA'LL!

After a break of 7 weeks (which is a lot for newcommers like them), a new management (superior Maverick), multiple break up rumors and the preparation of their new album #5H2 (produced by Max Martin and his team, Stargate, Dr Luke and more), the girls are back! Lauren, Normani, Dinah, Ally and Camila posted a group selfie at their group twitter account. Seems like they are filming a music video and/or shooting for the album.


Collapse )
I'm glad the girls are back to work. Love them, but they are not famous enough to go on a 7 weeks hiatus and expect all the fans to be back. Especially after all those break up rumors. And it's been more than one year since 'Worth It' was released. Yes, it's been more than a year since the girls released a single. They are acting like "Worth It" was their "Umbrella" when it's more their "Pon de Replay"; the general public knows the song, the general public don't know who sings it. But with a new management and a new album with great producers, 2016 could be 5H year!
