The Next Star Wars Spinoff Could be Announced this Summer




During Star Wars Celebration last weekend, the current head of Lucasfilm, Kathleen Kennedy, was asked about the next spinoff announcement saying that "I think we’re getting close. My hope would be sometime around the summer. I never want to predict the creative process because it is its own thing, so we’re in the midst of those discussions right now." which means the best guess for the reveal will be at D23 this year from July 14-16 as Star Wars has a big presence during the expo.

The panel also talks about the impact of Jon Ossoff's in regards to how it could be for the midterms. Jed calls 45 tone deaf at the moment.

45 wasn't the only one called tone deaf. Ivanka is under fire from the panel. Whoopi calls her on not being effective and she's just scenery. Joy thinks Ivanka's function is to prevent him from having a nervous breakdown. His goddamn tax returns are back in the spotlight. The audit that has been happening for too long. Sunny talks about the statutes of limitations in regards to audits and doesn't think what is happening is right. They also talk about a new poll released in regards to 45's promises.

Brie Larson Explains Why She’s Excited to Play ‘Captain Marvel'



“Aside from the fact that it’s iconic to be part of this, to be playing the first female [lead] in a solo [Marvel] movie, I think for me personally one of the things I’m excited about is the idea of female complexity. That’s what I’ve wanted to bring to every genre and every film that I’ve done. How can we come to understand the mystique of being female? And I think with Free Fire, for example, what excites me is to say, ‘It’s not so easy as just saying, oh, that’s a girl in an action movie; that’s a superhero and she’s tough and she’s just like a dude.’ That’s too easy. That’s not where we’re at actually. I think women are far more complicated and more interesting than just saying, ‘They’re like a dude, and that’s what makes them tough and that’s what makes them cool.’

That’s just not how it works, so to me it’s this idea of doing this film on this larger scale with really incredible, smart people behind it, with women behind it, that gives you an hour and a half, two hours to sit and see how different a woman can be. That seems cool to me, right?”

Captain Marvel, starring Brie Larson as Carol Danvers, is set to open in theaters on March 8, 2019.

TheBlaze files countersuit against Tomi Lahren





  • Tomi Lahren had sued TheBlaze for allegedly firing ha for her pro-choice beliefs.

  • In TheBlaze's countersuit, they claim that despite of her commments being shocking and "inconsistent with positions she had previously expressed", they were not the reason why her show was suspended because they respect their employees' opinions.

  • The countersuit mentions the following reasons: her treatment of the floor crew on her show was “inappropriate and unprofessional,” as she was “constantly complaining about everything including but not limited to lighting, room temperature, editing, shooting, directing, etc., her “word choices on air had to be addressed repeatedly for bordering on the profane.”, and she would not work with one of two full-time makeup artists, “which resulted in a report to the human resources department.”.

  • Lahren's suit also claims that employees of the Blaze even stretched yellow caution tape on the door to her office and dressing room when she wa suspended.

  • TheBlaze is searching for a temporary restraining order against ha so she wouldn't be able to make public appearances without their approval AKA so she won't talk shit about them.

Adidas Congratulates Runners For Surviving the Boston Marathon


0xPF.jpg

*Adidas apologized after sending out a poorly-worded marketing e-mail to its customers, just one day after the 121st Boston Marathon.

* In the subject line of the e-mail from Adidas Running, it said, “Congrats, you survived the Boston Marathon!”

* The message immediately led to backlash as customers reminded the company about the 2013 Boston Marathon bombings, when three people were killed and more than 260 others were injured.

* At least two bombing survivors, Patrick Downes and Marc Fucarile, participated in this year’s race.

* “We are incredibly sorry,” the company said in an e-mailed statement. “Clearly, there was no thought given to the insensitive e-mail subject line we sent Tuesday.”

[Spoiler (click to open)]The scene at the end made no sense to me. Michael hasn't seen Sara in years and she moved on. It would have made more sense from him to leave the gravestone request for Lincoln. I'm just not here for this whole plot of Sara's phone being hacked, and there hasn't been enough Sucre. Why is there more Bagwell than Sucre? If we're doing this plot, I'd like for Sucre to help Sara as well.
