‘Spider-Man’ Spinoff: Silver Sable, Black Cat Movie Finds Director

Gina Prince-Bythewood, who wrote and directed The Secret Life of Bees, will direct Silver and Black, Sony’s Spider-Man offshoot that centers on characters Silver Sable and the Black Cat.

Silver Sable, created by Tom DeFalco and Ron Frenz in 1985, is a mercenary who runs a company that hunts war criminals. The character has been both antagonist and ally to Spider-Man.

Black Cat, an acrobatic cat burglar whose real name is Felicia Hardy, has a long and tangled romantic history with Spider-Man in the comics. The character was cut from scripts for the Sam Raimi Spider-Man trilogy, and a “Felicia Hardy” (played by Felicity Jones) briefly appeared in Amazing Spider-Man 2, though no Black Cat connection was ever made explicit.

Note:  This deal will make Prince-Bythewood the first black woman to direct a superhero movie, the second woman of colour (following Lexi Alexander) and the 4th woman overall to direct a live-action superhero feature film following Lexi Alexander, Patty Jenkins and Anna Boden (co-directing with Ryan Fleck).

voting Tory because you're scared and angry is like running into traffic because of all the cars

Bit of a vicious circle isn’t it?

This all stems from the Iraq war really. The Iraq war happened, spurred terrorism, terrorism happens. And it’s why I’ll always believe Tony Blair to be a fucking war criminal.

Governments then respond by clamping down on people’s freedom under the guise of security, and increase their violent foreign policy. This leads to more radicalisation and kids then go on to become, you guessed it, terrorists.

And then we get ‘debates’ on talk shows and the media that platform racists and bigots screaming that 'Muslim people don’t do enough to fight extremism’ as if the Muslim community is one giant what’s app group.

And the thing is, this entire scenario is run by the media, which essentially boils down to the whole thing is run by families in charge of the media. You think England would be in the situation it’s in just now if headlines in England didn’t scream 'IMMIGRANT INVASION’ at them on a daily basis?

I despair at all this shite. And I’ve had enough of seeing all of the world’s pond-life taking to Facebook and sharing English Defence League videos and other neo-Nazi shite with the initial caption of 'I’m not a racist but this is a good point.’

I hate tragedies. A 14 year old Scottish girl from Barra has been named the next victim. I hate the amount of suffering tragedies cause. I hate the people on social media who #thoughtsandprayers and say things like 'And to think I was in Manchester last week.’ And I hate the fucking keyboard warriors who don’t know anything flocking to Facebook comments and statuses writing the most incompetent and misguided shite ever.

But the worst of the shit is always stirred up by the media and they give a voice to anyone who has an opinion regardless of how unhelpful that opinion is.

I know that’s probably more of an answer than you were expecting but cheers.

The next old Expanded Universe character Lucasfilm is going to canonize is known war criminal Stuart Zissu. In season 4 of Rebels, the 12 year old malefactor will pour salt into Kanan and Ezra’s rations, killing them instantly of dehydration. Meanwhile Stuart Zissu will escape to learn more about science in the deep cold reaches of space.

Tulsi Gabbard makes Jake Tapper uncomfortable with her honest assessment of the situation in Syria after her trip there. She bucks the deep state narrative. Please watch.

Antisemitism on the Left

Gentiles (AKA non-Jewish people) who talk about social justice seem to be confused or completely oblivious to what antisemitism is.

It’s not just calling for Jewish people to die or being a literal neo-nazi.

I regularly see Leftist/Liberal/Progressive/Social Justice gentiles that claim to be against antisemitism/nazis act incredibly antisemitic, so here’s a helpful list! 

And if you’re wondering WHY something on this list is antisemitic, Google is free!

  • Saying you hate X group of Jews (white Jews, Israeli Jews, etc)
  • Accusing a random Jew (ex: Gal Gadot) of killing children/being a war criminal with absolutely nothing to back up your claims.
  • Calling Jewish people murderers, child-killers, etc. in general
  • Calling Israel a white supremacist state.
  • Celebrating the deaths of Jewish people (yes EVEN if they’re Israeli!)
  • Holding all Jewish people (EVEN Israeli Jews) accountable for the actions of the Israeli government
  • Asking Jewish people their stance on Israel out of any context.
  • Dismissing any group of Jews as “white” (note: this does not include holding white-passing Jews accountable for their conditional white privilege/racism)
  • Ignoring the fact that Jewish people can be of any ethnicity
  • Dismissing the fact that Jewish people are an ethno-religious group
  • Dismissing our connection to Israel
  • Calling a Jewish person you don’t know a reptile/lizard person/goblin (example: The FineBros)
  • Comparing acts of racism/genocides to the Holocaust (there are certain situations in which this is appropriate, but that’s up to Jewish people to decide)
  • Acting like antisemitism isn’t only about discrimination against Jews and includes ALL semites.
  • Acting like Jewish people are privileged for being Jewish (even if they’re white-passing!)
  • Using anything involving Israelis/non-government related Israel events to Discourse about Israel.
  • Bringing up the actions of the Israeli government in response to antisemitism.
  • Acting as if antisemitism is deserved because of the actions of the Israeli government.
  • Giving antisemitic gentiles a pass because they do other kinds of activism.
  • “But Jews voted for Trump!”
  • Inserting yourself into Jewish-only discussions.

Non-Jews are absolutely encouraged to reblog! But this is not an invitation to argue these points!

Jewish people are encouraged to add on!

hey i’ve seen this a lot so: can we please collectively not call the diamonds nazis

nazism is a specific form of fascism that affects real life jewish people, people of color, and LGBT people. no one should be compared to nazis except real nazis and fictional depictions of nazis (ie. hydra from marvel). it’s especially disrespectful because Rebecca Sugar is jewish

the diamonds are fascists, imperialists, colonizers, mass murderers, war criminals, slave owners, dictators, etc. please call them those adjectives instead

@russianspacegeckosexparty and I have talked about this pretty regularly, but the marvel fandom is and always will be a giant racist cesspit, like most fandoms unfortunately are.

Adam asked his mutuals/followers to make a game out of going into the Wakanda tag on ao3 and check how many fics there actually involved and focused on black characters and not the fandom’s white faves. I found one so far.

I also found a fic that exists solely to remind me how much the fandom continues to hate black people, as the whole paragraph long premise is to show how much smarter Tony is then everyone in Wakanda. Naturally the klandom crawled out to share their love and support of this fic, including my favorite comment so far.

“Thank you for this. I hate all Sues, including Wakanda-Sue. Really, nothing about that frigging country is realistic from its economy, technology, cultural heritage, cat religion, etc. How did this country develope in isolation? Vibranium doesn’t miraculously raise everyone’s IQ. A modern country run by a king in a black cat costume? Is their military the best in the world, cuz they should have invaded a hundred times by now. If it’s so damn perfect, please knock yourself out leading the free world. The US has its own damn troubles. Oh wait, they are cowards and hypocrites, hiding and not sharing their tech with the rest of the world. Why didn’t they land a man on the moon first? Where is their cure for Ebola or HIV? Why did they not get involved in Hutu Tstsi civil war that decimated millions? Or Rhodesia? Or Khadaffi wrecking Libya The questions just add up.    Yea, I get it. It’s PC attempt to make an African country be a first world marvel. But it’s not even remotely plausible. I’ve gone from meh, to the whole place can FOAD. I want someone like John Wick to mow down the Dora. I want Tony to nuke it from orbit, just to be sure. So thank you for bringing this sanctimonious place to its knees. Please do more to humiliate them!”

Honestly it’s a really long paragraph just to say that you hate black people, including wishing that a white billionaire war criminal would commit nuclear genocide just  to get rid of them.

But it’s also telling that you hate us that much.
