I don’t usually comment on posts but FUN RANDOM DISNEY FACT : before Scar got his Scar (which was given to him by a wildebeest after an incident involving Mufasa) his name was Taka. He requested to be called Scar after this incident because he is a very over-dramatic lion as we already know! The source for this fact is from the Lion King novel series.
Damn you learn something everyday.
EXCUSE ME THERE IS A LION KING NOVEL SERIES EXCUSE ME EXCUSE MEEEE
Another fun fact: I just looked it up and in Swahili, taka means garbage.
So their parents named them literally “King” and “Garbage” omfg that’s so awful xD
that’s so MEAN NO WONDER GARBAGE WANTED TO KILL HIS FAMILY
Stellan Skarsgard Returns For ‘The Avengers: Age of Ultron’Dr. Erik Selvig (Stellan Skarsgård) reveals his Marvel Studios contract length and hints at his role in ‘The Avengers: Age of Ultron’.
Skarsgård: “[U]sually they call [Selvig] in if they need something explained. There’s a lot of explanations to do when it comes to that universe.”
You know, I am trying to exercise a lot of forbearance, trying to be fair to all the other characters you have going, think in terms of the needs of the particular story, and to give you the benefit of the doubt. I believed that the Age of Ultron story did not call for someone like Foster and saw greater potential for her work to be salient to the Thanos story, presumably to be the core of Avengers3.
But it would seem that the story has need of someone with Foster’s kind of knowledge. She was the subject matter expert in Thor1, and she was pushed aside in Avengers1. Because of that, Selvig apparently now is your go-to character for explaining cosmic-scale MCU physics.
If that’s what happening, it is wrong and unfair. This character deserves better. Your audience deserves better.
Nah this one isn’t sexism, it’s because Natalie Portman really doesn’t like acting in MCU and likely did not want to be involved in this movie.
She didn’t even want to be involved in Thor 2.
Jane deserved a better actress than her. Someone who actually gave a shit about the character and role.
Haha no. Nonononononono no.
Do you know WHY Natalie Portman dislikes Marvel so much? It’s because she hated the way Jane Foster was written (damselled a lot) and was pushing for a female director to take over the reigns of Thor 2. She would’ve been the first female director to head a Marvel movie … until Marvel fired her for pretty vague reasons.
Let’s remember that Marvel has a history of being shitty to actors who dare to speak up against ANYTHING. Terrance Howard, for example? Remember how RDJ had to basically BLACKMAIL Marvel into increasing the salaries of all of his co-workers because they were paying them the bare minimum that they could get away with? (They signed Chris Hemsworth on as an unknown and locked him down to a tiny salary because of that and made him the same offer every movie knowing he was under contract.)
Natalie Portman has gotten SO MUCH SHIT from the Thor fandom, mostly misogynists who would’ve hated Jane Foster for any reason, but even some so-called “Jane Foster” fans who can’t comprehend why she doesn’t treat Marvel like a precious jewel.
Portman’s done problematic things. You can dislike her, whatever. But she has fought for Jane Foster in the past and it’s ENTIRELY Marvel’s fault that they’re fucking her over.
I’m trying to make a sideblog and I’m thinking about aesthetic for the first time in my life but I’m not pinkgills I don’t have aesthetic how do i do it
