I just wanted to share this writer explanation as I honestly found it kind of hilarious. So, as some of you may be aware, there has been some dislike about the fact that Tilda Swinton was cast as the Ancient One in Dr. Strange, as the character in the comics was a Tibetan man. The interview can be found here:

It is a really interesting summary of the interview. Something that baffled me in it was that the writers argument about the Ancient One being an oriental stereotype is true, but what I continue to struggle with is that if they decided to change the ethnicity of the Ancient One because of that, why did decide everything is Tibetan. So in an attempt to avoid racial sensitivity, they decide to have a white person have teach another white person to be the bestest magic while dressed in Tibetan clothes in a Tibetan building surrounded by Tibetan people in Tibet.

The comment that killed me, though, was how insulting the writer considered casting a Chinese woman to act a Tibetan character.

The first part of that formula was establishing the status quo in the protagonists' city.

Convergence: Blue Beetle's bit of that was decently done.

It opened on a standoff.

On one side, some Madmen; on the other, some men. )

"I was friends with Clay before, so it’s great actually working together. I’ve only met Seth, his twin, a couple of times, who’s doing the inking, but I’ve seen his Marvel work before. If you look at my script it’s very straight and focused on Isley, whereas Clay brings in the Ivy-ness, the sexiness to everything. And I mean everything!

Even the plants are beautiful and sexy!

"Kevin Feige (who runs Marvel Studios) was a big fan of the books and told us it made him realise an Avengers movie could actually be a lot simpler than they’d thought and so they used book one and the ending to book two as the template for the movie, which is enormously flattering. People have suggested we should feel ripped off, but we don’t own these characters. All we did was give them a lick of paint and come up with a story and the visuals. These are Marvel-owned characters and I have my own little empire with Millarworld so I’m genuinely just pleased to see all this on the big screen and wish them nothing but the best with it."

In the comments to these weekly posts (and only these posts), it's your chance to go as off topic as you like.

Talk about non-comics stuff, thread derail, and just generally chat amongst yourselves.

It's World Intellectual Property Day

Is it a sign of my age (or indeed a sign of the times) that the loss of global music superstar Prince makes me slightly less sad than the loss of British comedienne, actress, singer, songwriter Victoria Wood?

A bunch of actors taking part in the celebrations for the 400th Anniversary of Shakespeare's birth bet a surprise guest star.

The Doctor's new companion has been revealed and she seems a touch more traditional than the last couple (which is no bad thing I should add).

Thought to just share the link if there are people interested:

Apparently, over the years, there have been several sexual harassment allegations against the Superman group editor Eddie Berganza which is now starting to gain attention. It will be interesting to see if this leads to anything as this is the first time such a situation has happened with a senior editor of his status. Not certainly the first time it has happened, but rather that it has been brought to the public in this manner.

"Laura is completely different than she was in Arena. She’s made a conscious decision to change. X-23 is her past. Wolverine is her future. She’s trying to let go of her deep dark baggage so that she can fully embrace this new role. It doesn’t come naturally, and her devil-may-care enthusiasm seems a little odd at times, but I think Laura is enjoying the freedom.

She’s not a slave to her programming anymore. She doesn’t have to calculate every move. She can just dive headfirst into the flames and see what happens.
