4/7: Sam Seaborn’s Best Quotes
|Topic:||DIVERSITY IN THE MARVEL UNIVERSE|
|Anthony Mackie:||We’re in a day and age where kids deserve someone they can look up to. I’m very proud of Scarlett with what she’s been able to do with Black Widow, and how little girls can sit back and see that she doesn’t have to have superpowers, she’s just a badass. While being cool and a chick. And I like the fact that little brown kids can say, ‘hey, the Falcon is there now’, and little green kids can say, ‘the Hulk’s there’. Don’t want to leave out the Martians. I think it’s very important, and I think Marvel has been at the forefront of that, giving people the opportunity to represent every aspect of culture. It’s definitely something that was on the table, and on my mind when I decided to sign on to this project.|
|Topic:||FANS COMPLAINING ABOUT CASTING ON GROUNDS OF RACE|
|Anthony Mackie:||Superman, black would be the coolest dude in the world. Imagine Sam Jackson in a cape. Running around. That would be a good movie.||I think what a lot of people don’t get is, these people aren’t real. If you cast a black dude as John F Kennedy, that’s wrong. If you cast a white dude as Martin Luther King, that’s wrong. These people aren’t real. The suits aren’t real. There aren’t really superheroes in the world.||At some point in time, you have to steep yourself in reality and say, ‘hey, it’s not about what they look like, it’s about casting a good actor in the role. If you’re sitting at home and you can’t see a black guy as Nick Fury, maybe there’s something wrong with you.|
goddammit umich i pay good money to go here and this is what you spend it on
THE IMPORTANT QUESTION: WHERE DID SHE GET THE CAR FROM?
DID SHE GET IT FROM SHIELD?
OR DID SHE GET IT FROM TONY BECAUSE YOU KNOW TONY STARK AND PEOPLE HE SORT OF LIKES EVEN IF HE PRETENDS NOT TO, NO HE DOESN’T KNOW WHY THERE’S A KEY TO A GARAGE AND THE SPACE IN THE GARAGE IS PAID IN PERPETUITY AND GOSH IS THAT A MUSCLE CAR? WELL HE HEARS RUSSIANS LIKE MUSCLE CARS, MAYBE SHE’D BETTER KEEP IT UNTIL THE OWNER SHOWS UP. MAYBE THE OWNER IS ALSO NAMED NATALIE RUSHMAN, YOU NEVER KNOW.
OR DID PEPPER HAND HER THE KEYS ONE DAY LIKE, “I’M SORRY FOR TONY’S EVERYTHING, SPA DAY TUESDAY?”
OR DID SHE PAY FOR IT OUT OF HER ACCOUNTS AS THE BLACK WIDOW BEFORE SHIELD, DOES CLINT CALL IT THE WIDOWMOBILE, DID SHE ONCE PICK UP HIM AND HAWKEYE AND DRIVE LIKE A CRAZED RUSSIAN THROUGH THE STREETS OF BROOKLYN WHILE CLINT AND KATE HANG OUT THE WINDOWS AND SHOOT ARROWS AT THEIR PURSUERS? DID SHE MAKE THEM BUY HER PIZZA AFTERWARD? DID LUCKY PUT HIS NOSE IN HER LAP UNTIL SHE FED HIM HER CRUSTS?
