rambles:-joss-whedon

characters like magneto, like wanda and pietro, who’s jewishness is so integral to who they are as characters, being stripped of it and not only that but being portrayed as nazis and as willing participants in nazi regimes is such a huge slap in the face like y’all it fucking hurts

also the fact that joss whedon thinks jews could “volunteer” as wanda and pietro supposedly did in his mind when jews were literally forcefully objected to experimentation, mutilation, and sterilization among the many other horrors of the nazi regime

that nick spencer thinks it’s subversive to make characters like captain america, created by jewish men as a symbol of hope, and magneto, a literal fucking holocaust survivor, faces of a nazi organization when since january alone there have been over 80 bomb threats against jewish centers and nazis are still out here doing their shit today

like this isn’t good writing, it’s not groundbreaking or new or fresh, it’s rehashing the antisemitism we see everywhere all the time and it’s fucking gross

My friend Joss Whedon made this powerful short film. Take a look and consider standing with @plannedparenthoodppaction.org/Unlocked

ZACK SNYDER STEPS DOWN FROM ‘JUSTICE LEAGUE’ FOLLOWING FAMILY TRAGEDY!

Zack Snyder has announced that he will step down as director of the ‘Justice League’ movie to be with his family after his 20 year old daughter committed suicide. Joss Whedon has already been announced to step in and finish the movie in Zack’s absence. Snyder had already finished filming and a lot of post production work so the final product will still very much be a Zack Snyder movie. Our thoughts are with his family. 

Bad representation is not better than no representation. A Batgirl movie written by a misogynist is not preferable to Batgirl never getting her own movie, and we SHOULD NOT have to make that choice. What are the chances we’ll get biracial Barbara Gordon under Whedon? What are the chances he will be able to treat disability with respect?

People grow and learn but Whedon’s track record has not reflected any growth at all.

Sorry guys I can’t be excited about a Batgirl movie because of Josh Whedon’s history.

It’s not easy to forget that this man is solely responsible for the abomination that was Black Widow’s character in Age of Ultron.

And now you want him to direct a Batgirl movie? The Killing Joke film already hyper sexualised Batgirl and made her thirsty for Batman(her father figure) now you want the man responsible for destroying Black Widow’s character in charge of another iconic female superhero?

I have my big doubts about how this will turn out. Even if this man is responsible for Buffy The Vampire Slayer, the AOU mess really puts a question mark on whether he can do it.
