  1. spoilers for every movie

    Okay so it's been about three weeks, and I think for a movie this size the limitations on some spoilers can end. There have been talks about and fan support of a third Amazing Spider-Man movie with Andrew Garfield and Co returning. If this happens, and if they happen to introduce Mary Jane (officially - Shailene Woodley was cast as MJ Watson and had filmed scenes in ASM2, but they were all cut), should Mary Jane keep her iconic red hair? I ask because if they open the floor to NOT doing so, they may broaden the casting choices. MCU MJ doesn't have red hair, but she is also "Michelle Jones-Watson" and isn't considered the same character...despite having the same initials and playing the same role.* And they could also expand the casting choices and have the actress dye her hair or wear a wig. Anyways, I'm just curious what people think about this, and if they're comfortable with another interpretation of the iconic interest having a different hair color,and possibly being of a different ethnicity than classical and original depictions, or if the red hair matters. (Batman has done this with Catwoman, although maybe Lois Lane for Superman is a better example. Iris West is a fair example of a race change that more or less caught on, but her look is less iconic than someone like Lois or Jean Grey or Mary Jane Watson.) *Maybe this was done to introduce Mary Jane later if Michelle didn't land as a character, but since she did, they are effectively the same. Michelle being MJ was also a late-movie twist for Homecoming.
  2. A Tiktoker named Nicque Marina is doing videos of Dolores reacting to Bruno's rat telenovelas. Her videos are pretty explicit, but it's also really funny.
  3. I'm definitely a fan of the new cover! (I liked the cover on Vol 1 also, but I like this rendition too!) Not sure what to expect since I never made it past Vol 1 for a myriad of reasons, none of which are linked to the quality of the series, but I'm excited for this to release!
  4. I liked it! It's not my favorite Disney movie, Lin Manuel Miranda musical, or Stephanie Beatriz role, but I really liked it! I'd give it a solid B.
  5. The Great Hunt by Robert Jordan. I have the classic, 90s cheesy cover, but I think I lent the book to a friend and haven't seen it in, like, two years. So, I bought the updated cover paperback version! WoT Season 1 and some other ideas inspired by WoT have really made me hungry for this book again, and I'm really enjoying it so far, even though I'm only about three chapters in. This book really highlights the difference between the book and the show, but not in a bad way. Books can get into detail and spend time on things that shows don't always have the luxury or financial freedom to do. As I'm reading this, I'm curious about how the show will be different, and I'm excited to see what those differences are.
  6. I was thinking that Skyward would be enough for one season, and then Starsight could be bolstered by Defending Elysium. Then again, I'm the sort of person who would put flashbacks in nearly every television show if I could. (Stormlight Archive and Arrow really made an impact on me.)
  7. You are always welcome! I wouldn't mind if you came out with a thread every year! I like the idea of having a special place for the end-of-the-year lookbacks instead of just lumping it with the current music being listened to. It makes the songs feel more special that way. (And since last year's thread was still active in June, I wouldn't worry TOO much about necroing that one. Although I do agree, better safe than sorry) Regardless, there are a lot of songs on your lists that I haven't listened to or heard of, and I'm looking forward to hearing them this year!
  8. Top Games of 2021: Mass Effect Legendary Edition* Dark Deity *It really shouldn't count since I've played ME2 & ME3 before. ME1 is the only new one. But since I haven't played ME2 in nearly 10 years and ME3 in around 6, I'm counting it. I also didn't want Dark Deity to be lonely.

  12. And!?!
  13. Toph and Spensa, Toph and Lift, Toph and probably Naruto (12 YO Naruto, not Shippuden or older Naruto). Toph would get along with a lot of people!
  14. And now I want that story! In my mind, I was thinking of how Jorgen, Kaladin, Todoroki, Zuko, and Gaara would all feel if they could have a talk. (Todoroki, Zuko, and Gaara have the most similarities, but I think Kaladin and Jorgen would fit in pretty well. Then again, maybe Adolin would be a better fit instead of Kaladin, and Kaladin would do well talking with Aang and a few others...)
