I do think it's funny though the "I just want a talented actor" crowd. It's a bit like people who live in a country with 62% white people and well above that of politicians are white. And what percentage level do you start to see that as a problem/may be something else going on here? But oh let's not look any further into it. White people are just naturally more intelligent, better actors, better business men etc. White men are something like 32% of the US population, so naturally only 32% of politicians, actors, famous faces, advertising, large business owners are white men as well yeah?
why is this a problem? so what if the majority of politicians are men? more men run for office hence more men are elected into office.

the overwhelming majority of teachers are women, like nearly 80%. is that a problem as well?

See that's the problem with a lot of people nowadays. They look at an institution and see disparity in color, or gender etc. and AUTOMATICALLY assume that that disparity was caused because of one race or gender holding down another. That may have been more true 100 years ago but we have had laws against these practices since the 60's. People will say "but culturally though" and I say it's a bunch of crap. Try openly shitting on a gay man vs shitting on a straight man especially as a public figure and see what happens.

Angelina Jolie in Negotiations for Marvel’s ‘The Eternals’

Angelina Jolie is in talks to star in Marvel Studios’ “The Eternals,” in what would be Jolie’s first venture into the superhero realm.

Details about the movie and what character Jolie would play are being kept under wraps. Created by Jack Kirby in 1976, the story of “The Eternals” is set millions of years ago when the cosmic beings known as the Celestials genetically experimented on humans to create super-powered individuals known as the Eternals along with the villainous Deviants.

The two groups went on to battle each other throughout history. The Eternals also warred with Greek, Roman and Norse dieties before leaving the Earth to explore the stars.

Chloe Zhao, whose helming credits include “The Rider” and “Songs My Brothers Taught Me,” became attached in September to direct “The Eternals” from a script by Matthew and Ryan Firpo. Marvel Studios Chief Kevin Feige is producing.

Jolie is starring “Maleficent: Mistress of Evil,” a sequel to the 2014 fantasy “Maleficent,” which grossed $758 million worldwide. The sequel, which will open Oct. 18, will be Jolie’s first big-screen appearance since 2015’s relationship drama “By the Sea,” which she also directed.

Jolie’s other upcoming projects include animation/live-action hybrid “The One and Only Ivan,” and the fantasy drama “Come Away” with David Oyelowo with Brenda Chapman directing. She is repped by UTA and Sloane Offer.

"All the world will be your enemy, Prince with a Thousand Enemies.
And whenever they catch you, they will kill you.
But first, they must catch you... digger, listener, runner.
Prince with the swift warren.
Be cunning and full of tricks... and your people will never be destroyed."

Kumail Nanjiani in Talks to Join Angelina Jolie in Marvel's 'The Eternals' (Exclusive)

Kumail Nanjiani is the latest to go Marvel.

The comedian and Oscar nominee is in negotiations to star alongside Angelina Jolie in The Eternals, one of two features that Marvel is prepping to shoot this year.

Chloe Zhao is directing the superhero adventure project, based on the 1976 comic book series created by Jack Kirby. The heroes got a dusting off in the 2000s by author Neil Gaiman. The project features the superpowered and near-immortal beings known as Eternals and a more monstrous offshoot known as the Deviants that were created by cosmic beings known as Celestials.

Jolie is understood to be playing the character named Sersi, a more outgoing Eternal who has not been afraid to move amongst humankind.

Nanjiani’s character details were hidden in the sands of time.

Nanjiani, who earned an Oscar nomination for co-writing The Big Sick with wife Emily Gordon, is hitting a busy time period. On the TV side, he stars in the first Twilight Zone episode from CBS All-Access and exec producer Jordan Peele. On the movie side, he will be seen in Sony’s Men in Black: International, which is set to open June 14, and then stars with Dave Bautista in the action comedy Stuber, which Disney/Fox will open July 12.

Additionally, the actor, repped byUTA, Mosaic and Schreck Rose, recently wrapped Lovebirds, a comedy that also stars Issa Rae that he exec produced.

Marvel had no comment.

Gosh. You do know a LOT of gay people exist right? You walk past them whenever you're out in public. What's wrong with them getting some representation? I don't really care if the actor is gay, as long as they are well casted and comfortable in the role then great. Good for Marvel, getting with reality.

An openly gay actor led the hobbits to Mordor too. Shocking.

Re: MCU Discussion & Speculation

Just got finished from watching Iron Man 3 as part of my MCU Marathon and I have to say that I no longer hate that movie. Do I still have the same complaints? Yes but I just find the movie to be so damn enjoyable this time around which is the exact opposite of Iron Man 2 (which was worst than I remember it being).

My Ranking So Far from Best to Worst:
Iron Man
The Avengers
The Incredible Hulk
Iron Man 3
Captain America: The First Avenger
Thor
Iron Man 2

Richard Madden in Talks to Join Marvel Studios’ ‘The Eternals’ (Exclusive)

“Game of Thrones” and “Bodyguard” star Richard Madden is in talks to star opposite Angelina Jolie and Kumail Nanjiani in Marvel’s “The Eternals,” which focuses on a group of ancient human beings, an individual with knowledge of the project exclusively told TheWrap. Details about Madden’s character is being kept under wraps.

“The Rider” director Chloe Zhao will direct the film. Matthew and Ryan Firpo (“Ruin”) are writing the script. Marvel Studios chief Kevin Feige is producing. TheWrap also first reported South Korean actor Ma Dong-seok, also known as Don Lee, will make his American film debut in the film.

Created by comic legend Jack Kirby in 1976, the Eternals are a race of ancient human beings created a million years ago by the cosmic entities known as the Celestials.

According to ComicVine, the Celestials accelerated the evolution of a handful of subjects and gave them the genetic potential to mentally manipulate limited quantities of cosmic energy, as well as other superhuman traits.

The story will focus on the female Eternal known as Sersi, (no, not the character on “Game of Thrones”), several insiders have told TheWrap. Angelina Jolie is currently in talks for the role.

“We have started working on what are the films post-phase 3,” Feige previously told TheWrap, referencing the forthcoming fourth part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s slate of movies after the wind-down of franchises based on the original Avengers.

Best known for playing Robb Stark on “Game of Thrones,” and following that up with BBC thriller “Bodyguard,” Madden will next be seen in Paramount’s Elton John biopic “Rocketman,” playing John’s longtime manager, John Reid.

Madden is repped by WME and Troika.

Marvel had no comment.

"All the world will be your enemy, Prince with a Thousand Enemies.
And whenever they catch you, they will kill you.
But first, they must catch you... digger, listener, runner.
Prince with the swift warren.
Be cunning and full of tricks... and your people will never be destroyed."
