Rdj pisses me off bc - along with the two things you pointed out - he fucked with CA:CW. Like I get it, marvel pays him a shit ton of money (not to mention the bonus he got for CW) so he wants to have bigger roles but this wasn't his movie. We could've gotten a real Captain America movie but he complained about not having enough screen time and we were left with this mess. I feel like him and kevin feigie really fucked up the mcu (they may have messed with the possibility of Cap!Sam)
I mean it was Feige really. YOU KNOW WHAT GETS TO ME THE MOST. They chose to do Civil War bc DC announced Batman vs Superman. And I get wanting competition. I understand it, this is the industry I’m working to get into, I get it. But Marvel have consistently made more money at the box office than DC. The Dark Knight, which is DC’s best film and their top selling film, made $158,411,483 on its opening weekend. The Avengers, which is not Marvel’s best film but it is their best selling film, that made $207,438,708 in its opening weekend. Guardians 2, which is Marvel’s 5th best selling film made $146,510,104 on its opening weekend, compared to DC’s Man of Steel which is their 5th best selling which made $116,619,362. Marvel’s 10th best selling movie still made $32,054,843 more on opening weekend than DC’s 10th best selling movie.
Marvel have literally not had a single opening weekend or total profit where they’ve made less than DC. And the reason for that was that they were making better fucking movies. DC we’re making superhero movies. And they were good superhero movies. They were visually very impressive, but they lacked any real substance. Marvel were making good character based movies that were easy to relate to and they happened to also be superheroes. And people loved that. That was what set them apart. And they sacrificed that with Civil War in order to compete with something that wasn’t really competition for them. They could have given us a proper solid Cap 3 and still made more money than the DC film. But instead we just got a superhero film. Visually it was impressive but the actual substance? Lacking.
AND DC MOVED THEIR RELEASE DAY ANYWAY SO THE COMPETITION WAS REMOVED AND THEY STILL MADE THAT PIECE OF GARBAGE.
It’s @nakmordrackweek‘s Drack Appreciation Week! And while I have no art to share, I do have this amazing Drack-inspired nail polish from @dragonsworncosmetics (who is also having a giveaway that ends in two days, go follow and reblog (even if it shifts my odds of winning…)), which is an absolutely perfect personification in liquid form.
I love being able to carry my krogan grandpa around with me.
Firstly, thank you for following this blog. i said it many times already but i’ll keep saying it - that it really means a lot to me, every reblog/like/retag people leave on my posts, i read them all and i really appreciate them
anyway for next month, i will be away at 修羅場 (lol) lately i don’t feel confident in my work, so i’m going to do a bit of grinding away from social media (here + twitter) (so if you have any messages for me, please drop it in my askbox and i will read it when i get back!)
but i’ll be back in time for kunikidazai week (which btw is gonna be super awesome and i’m super excited for)
Everyone’s congratulating PBG for his upset outburst towards Jontron, but nobody’s congratulating him for apologizing for it after and showing political disagreements shouldn’t be what destroys friendships.
I have a lot more respect for him because of this and he deserves more credit for it imo.
the entire class has this ongoing joke about how ivan got his scar. the reality is that he got it because he walked into the corner of a wall when they were all little, but that’s no fun.
kim calls it the shark bite. alix says that ivan got in a knife fight in a back alley. max’s go to is that ivan was testing prototype weapons for the government. juleka says an eyebrow job gone wrong, sabrina says he just shaves it for style, and nathanael once said it was a mark of magic powers. nino jokes that this is why you should never let marinette use you for a model, marinette is offended and insists that it was because ivan had a deadly disease when he was younger. rose agrees with nathanael’s magic theory, mylène says it gives him his strength. chloé says ivan gave it to himself to look cooler.
alya and adrien have never heard the original story. they are very confused
A lot of people seem to think that Jack didn’t apologize about his asshole behavior to Bitty in Year 1, but he did!! He apologized!! In his gruff, well meaning, Jack-ish way that Bitty nevertheless understood.
In “Goodbye for the Summer,” he apologizes to Bitty for the hit, but he’s also apologizing for “everything that happened this year”
Jack’s stuttering, he’s not really sure what to say, but he wants to say sorry. This is more than the hit that Bitty took, it’s an apology on how Jack treated him this year, and also a thank you to Bitty who not only didn’t hold it against Jack but treated him with a lot more respect than he probably deserved.
And Bitty accepts the apology! By this point, Jack hasn’t been an asshole to him for a long while and you can obviously tell that Bitty’s already got a crush. And of course Jack knows that their relationship is better than before, but he’s still taking the time to make sure that Bitty knows that Jack understands that he was wrong, and that it was an honor for Jack that Bitty voted for him in spite of all that.
This is the last comic of Bitty’s freshman year, and it’s jack apologizing for his behavior and Bitty accepting it, and the two of them turning over a new leaf. I feel that a lot of people might have missed it because they wanted Jack to say outright “I was an asshole this year, I’m sorry,” but dude’s an awkward guy and emotions are hard. In any case, they both understand what their conversation is really about. The last two panels are then about a new dynamic between Jack and Bitty, where “Eat more protein” becomes less a dismissive command from a jerk captain and more of an inside joke between the two.
tldr in the last comic from Bitty’s Year One, Jack and Bitty have a conversation wherein Jack apologizes and Bitty accepts his apology and the two of them turn a new leaf and change the dynamic of their relationship.
