What?
The Amazing Spider-Man 2is not a part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and considering all the above were part of the MCU, I don’t know why it’s there.
The same thing with X-Men: Days of Future Past except even worse because nobody dies for real. Yeah, that’s right: NOBODY DIES FOR REAL. Even Jean Grey gets resurrected! The movie has a negative body count!
And Agents of SHIELD? Yeah, Victoria Hand dies. As does Eric Koenig. And John Garrett. Characters die. Shit happens.
Also ANT-MAN hasn’t even started filming yet so YOU DON’T KNOW WHAT HAPPENS! So what if it stars Hope Pym/Van Dyne! We already knew that Hank Pym was going to be played by Michael Douglas - it is a surprise that Janet Van Dyne is going not going to be a main character? Hell, we don’t even know if she’s dead in the movie!
This seriously nitpicking of the worst kind. It’s nitpicking that doesn’t even make sense.

Well, yes we do know that Janet Van Dyne is dead in Ant-Man. As part of Hank Pym’s manpain origin. It is known, Khaleesi.http://comicbook.com/blog/2014/07/28/-ant-man-michael-douglas-teases-tragic-fate-of-janet-van-dyne/

Who has been your biggest mentor on the show?
Nat Dormer. I can ask her the most stupid embarrassing questions. I’ll be like “so what does it feel like to be in love?” and she will tell me and give advice. She’s probably my biggest mentor just in general life.

Anonymous asked: Not every character is going to make the cut. I dont see what the big deal is.

everybodyilovedies:

Okay, so I’m tired and have a headache so I’m not going to respond to this as in depth as I should, but let’s look at some facts:

There were 5 founding Avengers: Tony Stark, Thor, Bruce Banner (Hulk), Hank Pym, and Janet van Dyne (Cap wasn’t one of them, he didn’t show up until issue 4!). Of those 5 founding members, we have Tony Stark: 5 movies, 3 solos; Thor: 4 movies, 2 solos; Bruce Banner: 4 movies, 2 solos; and Hank Pym, 1 movie. Out of those 5 founding members, 1 of them is female. Out of those 5 founding members, 1 of them isn’t getting into a movie at all, much less their own movie.

OH WHOA THOSE TWO OVERLAP FOR SOME REASON?????????

Okay, so, whatever. Not everyone gets their own movie, right? Nevermind that Jan found Captain America, named the Avengers, is the reason Jocasta EXISTS, chairpersoned the team more times than I can honestly remember right now but at least 3 times, is #5 on the most important Marvel heroes list of all time (and would be number 1 if the Avengers voted on it, according to the list makers’ own admission). (Beating out, for the record: Hank Pym (7), Black Widow (10), Vision (6), Luke Cage (12), Beast (13), Quicksilver (14), Falcon (15), Hulk (18), Spider-Man (25), Iron Patriot (31), Havok (36), Ant Man (Scott Long, 46), Iron Fist (46), and Jessica Jones (49) ALL OF WHOM are getting big or small screen treatment before she is. Never mind ALL OF THAT.

They’re making an Ant Man movie, right? So okay, cool, obviously Ant Man is going to be in it. But which one? There’s two! Hank and Scott. Oh, turns out, they’re gonna do both.

So they didn’t cut either Ant Man, they’re shoehorning BOTH of them into one movie. Huh, okay, cool! Both of them made the cut, I guess. Biggest bang for their buck. 

Did you know Cassie Lang is the entire reason Scott Lang (Ant Man #2) became a superhero (criminal at first) in the first place? Like it’s literally his entire origin story.

You know who isn’t making it into the movie at all? Well that’s kinda… weird. I mean, it seems relevant, you know? But hey, I guess not everybody is going to make the cut!

And Jan, right? She doesn’t matter. It’s not like she literally carried Hank through at least 5 breakdowns. It’s not like SHE’S the one who wanted to be a superhero in the first place and encouraged him to use his research for that. It’s not like SHE defeated Ultron HERSELF MULTIPLE TIMES. She’s definitely not relevant at all to Hank’s story. Oh, and even BETTER. Let’s just COMBINE these two women into one woman! Rather than give Hank a wife and partner who can support him, we’ll give him a daughter who… something. And rather than give Scott a daughter who will be his entire origin story, we’ll give him… Hank’s daughter?

Put all of that aside, seriously. Take EVERYTHING I just said and completely disregard it. You know why it’s bullshit Jan got cut? Because she’s a woman who is feminine and also kick butt. She’s a woman who can be ditzy and brilliantly cunning. She’s flighty and carefree while being a strong, commanding leader who wins the respect of everyone who works under her. She loves fashion AND punching bad guys in the face. She thinks being a hero is all fun and games until she learns responsibility and severity, but even then keeps her compassion and empathy. Jan is an important, DIFFERENT role model for men and women alike that the MCU HASN’T SEEN BEFORE. Hank and Scott, sorry to say, are characters WE HAVE SEEN BEFORE. Hank is a scientist who is tortured by his genius but feels the responsibility to do good with it. Been there, done that, bought the neck brace. Scott is a guy down on his luck just trying to hold it together for his family and gets sucked into a life of crime. Pretty sure I just summarized every show that has ever aired on AMC. But you know what Jan is? Jan is a female action star who isn’t either 1.) a prodigy child confused by her own powers, or 2.) a stone-cold ultra killer with the toughness of steel. Not that there’s anything WRONG with those archetypes: what’s wrong is that’s the ONLY TWO you see women satisfying in action movies (besides love interest, of course). 

Full disclosure: out of all the Marvel characters, I’m probably the most like Carol Danvers. But I LOVE JAN because she’s DIFFERENT. I think Jan might even be more important than Carol to get onto the big screen because  she’s not just like one of the guys. She’s not tough in a masculine way. She has a pixie haircut and designs costumes and tries not to break a nail. But she does it while being a BRILLIANT leader and a FIERCE warrior. It’s something we NEED to show on screen. It’s something little girls and little boys NEED to know is possible. I sure would have benefited from it as a kid, at least. 

That’s why you can’t just accept that Jan didn’t make the cut.

I think the universe would implode in on itself if it had to deal with more than one Tony, to be honest.

people who say the watchmen graphic novel had a better ending than the film are people who are in denial

The difference between the comic book ending and the movie ending, however, is that the movie had two and half hours to set up the ending, while the comic had twelve issues. As a comic, Watchmen was very well paced - things you read about and then forgot suddenly come back, things you read and didn’t even realize were significant are suddenly very significant. All the puzzle pieces suddenly fit - the missing science fiction writers, the genetic modifications, the island, everything.

The movie, on the other hand, had to cram all the characters, motivations, histories, and plot into those two and a half hours. It was obviously going to be inferior. There was no way it could have possibly been as well done as the comic - well, perhaps if it had been an HBO mini-series. But Watchmen was always designed to be a comic book, from the way each issue mirrors itself, to the way certain phrases are repeated over and over again.

As for the ending, I’m fine with how they changed it in the movie. They had to take certain liberties. But I still like the comic book’s ending more.

However, I shall never forgive them for cutting Dr. Manhattan’s last words, which provide a nice metacommentary on comics themselves: “‘In the end?’ Nothing ends, Adrian, Nothing ever ends.”

I think the failure of the “movie ending is better” contingent is thinking that the comic ending is ridiculous AND THEREFORE INFERIOR. Of course it’s ridiculous. It’s a giant alien squid that dies immediately upon breaching our dimension. It’s MEANT to be ridiculous. It’s a comic book, in the best way. It was never supposed to be a movie.

Week 68 (7/17/14)

It’s time for the froyo princess to start getting in on the action! While FroyoKid plays elsewhere, blissfully unaware that his kingdom is being encroached upon, baby Agnes is ready to start playing a starring role.

We got the No Sugar Added Strawberry froyo with mochi, Fruity Pebbles, strawberry boba, lemon clusters, and a cherry on top.

The new lemon clusters taste like yogurt covered lemon Pop Rocks, and crunch in your mouth. Very tart and sweet at the same time!

At home now FroyoKid has started saying “Mommy is princess, Daddy is princess, Agnes is princess, Scott is PRINCESS!” So hey, princesses all around.
