Through Twitter, I recently discovered the online community Black Girl Nerds. I know…I am not their target demo (white and a guy)… but I am really impressed with the community. Their articles are thoughtful and challenging. And the discussions they generate? Some of the best discussions (especially on the intersection … Continue Reading NERDS!!!
I would have Peter Parker be in the MCU first. He would be the theatrical Spider-Man. Race optional. Could be black, hispanic, asian, white, etc. He would be in the Captain America: Civil War film. Then there would be an easter egg in Spidey’s film. at some point, we would … Continue Reading If I were in Marvels Shoes…
I noticed Jeff Sneider (who has stated a 95% certainty that Peter Parker will not be white) clarified a bit on twitter where he is getting this idea. He noted that white actors are going out for the role, but agents for some of those actors have told Jeff they … Continue Reading Just Maybe…
So, I have been pretty firm in my statement that Marvel and Sony are not going to switch out Peter for Miles in the Spider-Man franchise. There is this rumor from late last week. “This is not set in stone guys, but I’m telling you right now: Spider-Man is not … Continue Reading It Won’T Be Peter Parker Maybe…?
I think the obvious answer is that it is the only thing that keeps Sports Illustrated from completely folding and closing up shop.

And it turns out I was wrong. The Marvel/Sony deal did not put an end to Sinister Six movie plans. They are delayed, but Sony apparently plans to proceed without Marvel’s input to boot. And this is just a terrible idea. First, the idea that their next Spider-Related film would … Continue Reading Sinister Ideas…
So, Marvel’s corner of the internet broke last night. In a big announcement Marvel and Sony noted they have joined forces to re-invigorate the Spider-Franchise. While confirming my feeling that there was no deal in place when it was “leaked that the deal was done”, they did sort of pull it … Continue Reading Does Whatever A Spider Can
I was sick from Saturday through Tuesday…I was unable to sleep much…so I ended up doing some binge watching Netflix. I watched the last few seasons of Rules of Engagement a mildly amusing sitcom that lasted seven seasons and had just enough episodes to make it to syndication. I watched … Continue Reading Lazy 100
There has not been a show focused on an Asian family in about 20 years. Margaret Cho’s All American Girl was a short lived show. And apparently the biggest lesson that was taken by all of mainstream television was…nobody wants to watch a majority Asian cast. It is a frustrating … Continue Reading It Only Took 20 Years
