Question: is the girl with the prosthetics that they've been making a feature of a minor or major character?

Major. She's the Odd Job to Jackson's Goldfinger.

I just got home from seeing Kingsman: The Secret Service.

Yes.

F'ing yes.

All I'll say is "Freebird" and "Pomp & Circumstance".

Auckland, New Zealand celebrated its 175 birthday last week. We've come a long way in that time, and now there are these photos showing just how far we've come - or not in the case of the Remuera Train Station.

Ra's al Ghul

That's right. Ra's is Australian in Arrow. That made me laugh.

(No complaints about the actor, mind. Just amusing to this Kiwi, is all.)

Here's one more ethnic switch (of a major character): Iris West in The Flash.

(click to show/hide)

I've haven't paid attention to the online fan response to the show and her character in particular, but I personally have no problem with her. Sure, she's a little clueless when it comes to Barry's alter ego, but I just put that down to the usual in-universe blinders most people seem to wear. That, and superhero outfits being the costuming equivalent of stage whispers.

Maybe it's because Johnson wears it better.

But people who are uncomfortable with the "whitewashing" of Ghost in the Machine should be equally uncomfortable with a member of the Fantastic Four being black. It's simply not how the characters were written.

Let's be fair, it's far from the first time they've tweaked a character's ethnicity...



One slightly confusing and concerning note from the movie's Wikipedia page: "[Kate] Mara said that she was supposed to read the Fantastic Four comic books for preparation. However, director Josh Trank suggested to her that it was unnecessary with writer Simon Kinberg adding, that the film is not based on a single issue of the Fantastic Four comic books."

I'm hoping that means they're not adapting an existing comic storyline, instead of ignoring the series altogether.

We're way ahead of ya Wink

I know a bunch of guys who've already put their hands up for this. I would have myself, but I don't think my painting is at the point where I'm happy for it to go on public display.

Because The Oatmeal, basically.

The game seems simple enough, but I imagine it's the addition of Inman's art and sense of humour that makes it a must have for many.

Two words: Exploding Kittens

1.5 million in less than 24 hours, and it's still rising.

What We Do In The Shadows: The American Release

It's a vampire movie, in the style of Spinal Tap, and every bit as funny as it looks.

It's pilot season again for Amazon. There's a half dozen comedies and dramas...

...and then there's The Man in the High Castle, based on the the classic Philip K. Dick novel.

It's got a delightfully creepy intro, and they've made some changes from the original novel, but I think it still hold up well.

Then again, I did buy a "Princess Sword" to my niece.  Grin

I'll be getting a Brave bow for mine when she's old enough. Though my sister-in-law also loves Johnny Depp, so I might get her a pirate cutlass as well.

I actually have no difficulty thinking the generic, nondescript feminine robobodies of the future will be sporting some sort of washed out amalgam of Holywood starlets that her actual appearance would be contributing to.

As long as they don't simply take the average and run with it. Though this is one situation where the porn* option might be more viable.

I'd like to admit something. I just watched the first two episodes of Galavant and really enjoyed it.

Yeah, there's a lot of singing and dancing, but it doesn't take itself seriously and has actors like Vinnie Jones who stop it from getting too off-putting. Oh, and it looks like there will be some great cameo casting as well.
