Employees at the Amsterdam zoo found an abandoned griffon vulture egg that none of the other vultures would adopt, so they placed it with a gay couple that had been nesting, bonding, and mating for years. The two males immediately took turns lying on the egg, cared for it until it hatched, and are now a happy family of three.
“There are a lot of things about Oliver that resonated with me, and
primarily it was that projection of ease and casualness and comfort that
you might not actually be feeling all the time,” said Hammer. “My whole
life, I’m bluffing my way through it all. And Luca was just like,
‘Nope, that doesn’t work around here’ — which was terrifying.”
I’m usually not a fan of overly-complicated gritty redesigns of classic comics costumes, but I really liked the Vulture’s design in Spider-Man: Homecoming.
Maybe because its design makes sense in the universe of the movie, or because it’s a good contrast to Peter’s simplistic colorful costume, or because it’s terrifying and actually intimidating unlike most gritty designs which are just dark. But this design really got to me.
