I am So Done with these criticisms I keep seeing like “It was good and all but Diego Luna didn’t work for me casting-wise, he was too wiry and soft-spoken, not action-movie enough” and I’m like??? SPY???? That’s the point????
Honestly people need to stop forcing the Hypermasculine Jason Statham Aesthetic bullshit irrelevantly onto characters that bear literally no comparison.
Me: *thinks about the in the heights movie and all of the hype I’m giving it despite the fact that it most likely won’t feature any of the cast members that caused me to fall in love with such a production, the fact that it’s still a few years away so I have no idea if I’d still even like in the heights by the time it comes around, the ridiculously high standards I have for the cast especially in casting an all poc cast being my number one want (something Hollywood’s been notorious in withholding), the fear of adding foreign plot points or even worse SUBTRACTING important plot points, the fear of somehow removing women from the narrative, the fear of watering down such a beautiful story in general*
New animation! Took a lot longer than I originally thought it would but hey, it’s finally done! Featuring the amazing @knittinggiantbeanies and @chongoblog, both of whom you need to check out if you somehow haven’t already.
Needless to say, I’m pretty excited to see what Mark is planning. I may not be as big of a fan as him as I am of Jack but what he’s doing really seems interesting. He always makes the most interesting stuff, to be honest. Anyways, here ya go!
