This horse not only looks like a badass, but it even looks like it knows it too.
really long reply to swifthorse, posting publicly b/c fanmail isn’t working
OH MAN. Yeah, I avoided looking at any info on the movie because I think I heard you mention Marvel’s injustice to Ant-Man’s character in the film. And that put me off already. It would sort of be like me hearing about an Emma Frost film and then finding out that she was basically going to be FC Emma Frost. I cringe at how badly her character was treated in the film. Also, Mystique’s to a point but luckily they’ve been doing somegood in someareas.
Also, I know we’re talking about Ant-Man but it also makes me think of other characters - like, as you said, how they are planning on portraying Wanda in AoU. I disliked the casting for both Wanda and Pietro but I want to tear my hair out when I hear that Whedon is planning to do his typical “porcelain girl who is crazy.” I *do* have hopes that they could just completely re-create the character for a standalone film. Shit, and there are so many Romani or Jewish actresses out there that deserve a chance at playing her character.
On defending characters like Janet yet demonizing others like Hank - I’ve seen it a LOT already in the MCU fandom. It grates on my nerves so much. Actually, I’ve talked to clawfoottub about how the fandom frequently demonizes Charles’s character yet glorifies Erik’s. Now, I enjoy both characters but I think I do well by recognizing their good qualities along with the bad and still liking them as characters. SHIT, I LOVE Raven and Emma and they’ve done so many horrific things in comic canon. I accept it, attempt to understand it, and move on to enjoy the characters without feeling the need to demonize them for those acts (even though I’m still like WTF EMMA DON’T KILL THE HORSE and yet she did and Raven, I mean, I know you thought it was a good idea to try to seduce your daughter’s bf but, um, no. just don’t).
Anyway, I think a lot of people look at that panel without context and since they are already mad about the Ant-Man movie and don’t know about the character that’s something they deem worthy to pick at. I’m still likely going to see the movie (maybe after it comes out or something) but I’ll forever be mad that we still haven’t gotten a Marvel movie focusing on a POC, LGBTQ+, or woman character and considering that they pride themselves in diversity. UGH. Haha.
i honestly don’t even know what’s going on with Teen Titans Go anymore
rukrym, ah, that makes sense! Well, I’ll keep ya’ll updated. I still haven’t made any decisions but a mule sounds like a good idea.
