Comic-Con: 'Black Panther' Reveals Lupita Nyong'o and Michael B. Jordan Character Details
Chadwick Boseman proved why he is Marvel royalty.

Black Panther leapt into Hall H Saturday at San Diego Comic-Con to reveal more details about the anticipated comic book adaptation.

Director Ryan Coogler said it was an “emotional” expedience getting to come to Hall H — a place he first visited as a fan in 2009. He introduced star Chadwick Boseman, who plays the Wakandan king and hero, who told the crowd, “Ryan has beautiful things in store for us.”

Then they surprised fans by introducing Lupita Nyong'o, whose character was revealed to be Nakia, who has a long history in the comics, sometimes as a potential wife for T'Challa and later as a villain named Malice.

Frequent Coogler collaborator Michael B. Jordan was revealed to be playing Erik Killmonger, an expert fighter and nemesis of Black Panther, while star Danai Gurira was revealed as Okoye, the head of the Dora Milaje, the personal body guards of the Black Panther.

Though Coogler was a Comic-Con vet, it was Boseman’s first time, who said he could feel it “it vibrating in my core.” It was also the first trip for Nyong'o.

Black Panther is set for release on Feb. 16, 2018.

Hard Candy gory theater AUs

The Deadly Delicacy was a semi-obscure play written somewhere between 1610 and 1614, more often regarded for the poetry of its language than any actual staged productions.  The story concerns a wealthy merchant who, having abused and murdered an innocent young girl, finds himself targeted for revenge by her mysterious friend.  At the end of the play, after giving its most famous speech (“My name is every maiden you have wronged”), she reveals herself to be the goddess Nemesis in disguise, summoned by his victim’s dying prayers.

It might have remained in obscurity had it not become the inspiration for another play written in 1798, Dialogue Between a Maiden and a Libertine.  This play, often considered unperformable (though that hasn’t stopped college groups from attempting it) updates the setting to pre-Revolutionary France, and focuses alternately on philosophical debate regarding sexuality, violence and morality in a world without god, as well as scenes of near-pornographic tortures the Maiden visits upon the Libertine.  Although published anonymously, it is believed to have been written by one of the Romantic poets sick of Byron reading de Sade at them.

The Batman/Joker Dynamic in “The Lego Batman Movie” & more

During his EW interview, Will Arnett [who voices Batman] spoke specifically about his experience working on the film with Zack Galifianakis (who voices Batman’s arch-nemesis in the movie, Joker) and teased that their characters’ relationship may differ from what most filmgoers will go in expecting:

“Zach and I had a really fun session a little while back. I’ve known Zach forever. The dynamic we landed on for Batman and the Joker that really works for us, I would describe as… refreshing. It’s a little bit surprising. It’s not what people are accustomed to with regards to these two characters.”

Concerning the plot, director Chris McKay said:

“The Joker sees himself on the same level as Batman, a peer, at the top of the game. But Batman says that’s not the case, which sends Joker into a spiral trying to prove to Batman that he is indeed the greatest enemy.”

What That ‘Star Trek Beyond’ Plot Twist Reveals About Krall, Kirk and the Kelvin Timeline (Spoilers!)

(Warning: This post contains major spoilers for Star Trek Beyond.)

You don’t have to be a Trekkie to be excited by the thought of Idris Elba playing James T. Kirk’s latest nemesis in Star Trek Beyond. But in the run-up to movie’s release, many people expressed disappointment, and even outright befuddlement, that director Justin Lin opted to bury the charismatic actor under layers of make-up in order to portray Krall, the despotic warlord who brings the Enterprise crashing down to the surface of an uncharted alien planet. If you’ve seen the movie, you know that all that latex isn’t just covering up Elba’s handsome face…it’s also masking Beyond’s big plot twist: Krall may look like an extraterrestrial, but human blood is coursing through his veins.

And that’s not all! As Kirk (Chris Pine) comes to discover, his enemy is also an insignia-wearing Starfleet officer, one that’s nursing a serious grudge against his former employers. Before he transformed into Krall, he was Balthazar Edison, a decorated soldier that joined the fledgling Federation a century ago and was given his own starship, the USS Franklin, to command. He piloted the vessel right into a patch of uncharted space, eventually landing on the planet that Kirk and his surviving crew members are struggling to escape from. Cut off from Starfleet, Edison grew increasingly bitter about his accidental exile, and his fury continued to curdle over the passing decades — an extended existence made possible by technology the planet’s previous inhabitants left behind.

But immortality comes with a price, which in this case happens to be a severe facial makeover, coupled with a twisted sense of justice. Krall’s master plan is to strike back at the Federation by destroying the nearby starbase, the Yorktown, with the help of an artifact currently aboard the Enterprise. The big climax takes place aboard that base, where Krall — whose features are steadily becoming more Elba-like now that he’s off his resurrection juice — has a gravity-defying battle with Kirk.

As many reviews have pointed out, with Furious 7 veteran Lin at the helm, Star Trek Beyond is heavy on action and a little light on theme. But the Krall/Edison revelation does point to a bigger idea that screenwriters Simon Pegg and Doug Jung raise in the script, namely what an extended tour in deep space might do to a person’s psyche. Early on in the film, we hear a weary Kirk expressing frustration with the daily grind of exploring the final frontier, and his serious reservations about Starfleet’s mission to seek out new life and new civilizations. In fact, after docking at Yorktown, we learn that he’s considering giving up a captain’s life for a desk job as a Vice Admiral…a career track that William Shatner’s Kirk had grudgingly followed in the gap between the original Star Trek series and Star Trek: The Motion Picture.  

In that context, Edison represents a kind of cautionary tale, and his metamorphosis into Krall makes him the literal manifestation of the fears and frustrations that run through the mind of a starship captain far away from the safe confines of Earth. That’s probably not a development that Star Trek creator, Gene Roddenberry, would have been pleased with. After all, in his near-utopian future, mankind had largely evolved beyond petty internal and external conflicts

But the rebooted film franchise overseen by J.J. Abrams has tended to defy that rule, most notably in the last film Into Darkness, when Starfleet is almost brought down from within by the corrupt Admiral Marcus (Peter Weller) and his designated enforcer John Harrison a.k.a. Khan (Benedict Cumberbatch). Krall is another example of how the version of the Federation that exists in the so-called “Kelvin Timeline” (the name that’s been given to the pocket universe where the new film series takes place) has noble ambitions that exceed its grasp.

Paramount has made it clear there will be more adventures to come; Abrams recently let it slip that the next Star Trek feature will reunite Pine with Chris Hemsworth, who played his onscreen father in the opening sequence of the 2009 reboot. Hemsworth’s presence is felt, but not seen, in Beyond, when Kirk marks his birthday — which also happens to coincide with the anniversary of his dad’s death — by pouring an extra shot of bourbon for George Kirk. That moment clearly lays the groundwork for the story that lies beyond Star Trek Beyond. Here’s hoping it doesn’t involve Kirk coming face-to-face with a false God.

Watch the ‘Star Trek’ cast on what the series still means:

Fear has become my name. Masks have become my appearance. Sleeping has become my enemy. Darkness has become my nemesis. Thinking has become my addiction. Crying has become my hobby. Cutting has become escape. Worrying has become my life necessity. Smiling has become my secret. Laughing has become my joke.


Finally I opened XCX up again and played a bit, so now Melon is sort of in official Pinkette uniform! ヽ(ᵔヮᵔ✿)ノ As you can see he’s not strong enough to wear the vivid pants, but he’s getting there. +Bonus Noctilum screenshot because I was goofing off and exploring everywhere instead of actually making story progress. 

I guess this also counts as scouting info too? Tbh I have no idea how scouting works, god help me So feel free to drag him along on your adventures even though he’s more likely to be a deadweight if anything 

Also! Shoot some friend requests my way if ya can (NNID: Ringasteal). Melon is lonely and is perfectly happy that way desperately needs some company! I’d be happy to squad with people whenever I’m online~ \(◕v◕✿)/ (Though at his level he’d get stomped on by global nemesis, but that’s okay! (◕ᴗ◕✿) )

It's official. I'm scared shitless. Normally I like action but this?! I thought Sans was gonna kill Papy! And after what the River Person said...Asriel's gonna make a mistake isn't he? I'm terrified of what's gonna happen next...

Naww, Sans would never hurt Paps! I bet they’ve sparred a bunch of times in the past just for fun. They know perfectly well that there’s never any actual danger, despite Sans’ low HP. They love each other too much, even getting into a serious fight couldn’t make either of them want to hurt the other.

Generally, Sans is lucky that his arch nemesis is a human. Sure, he can be a vengeful asshole, but he’s also maaayyybe a little bit of a wuss who has a hard time genuinely mustering up the level of sadism needed to want anyone dead. It’s a redeeming trait, IMO.

Asriel, though. True, I wouldn’t trust him not to make a mistake …

        The arachnicon steepled her talons as she sat in her throne, she had been thinking a lot lately about what the anonymous had said the lunar cycle before. She enjoyed the idea of pitting humans against each other just a bit too much. She knew how clever they were, as she was tricked by one before, so it would be an entertaining sight to see them pit against each other.

The Eradicons could use new forms of entertainment since they’re not fighting anyone anymore, and she knew that boredom on such a scale can be dangerous. They could focus on that and place bets on which one would win and lose.

As the warship lowered the huntress down, she looked around for human targets to abduct. As she did so, she ordered some Eradicon troopers over the commlink to prepare an arena for the humans to duel in. Tonight was going to be an interesting night in for her and the rest of the Nemesis crew.
