Michael Fassbender loves James McAvoy tongue. Graham Norton demands to see it.

Were you ready? Graham wasn’t ready. None of us were ready.

That’s not even it, dude.

Janet van Dyne, a founding member of the Avengers and the person who gave it its name, appears to have been erased from the MCU. Not in the roster when Avengers came out back in 2012, Jan was set for another opportunity to be a part of the team when Marvel announced Ant-Man. Unfortunately, from the announcements yesterday, Jan van Dyne was not even mentioned but someone else was: Hope van Dyne, later corrected to “Hope Pym”, Hank Pym’s daughter. 

At best, Jan will either be a mention or a cameo or an easter egg. She will not be a part of the team she founded, she will not be a superhero. She’s either been swapped out for Hope Pym, who might take up the mantle because Marvel Studios thinks women are interchangeable, or she will be an easter egg at most. 

Janet van Dyne, the heart and soul of the original Avengers and of every Avengers team she’s been on throughout the years, has been erased from the MCU.

If that seems like a fucking shitty thing for Marvel to do to you, we’re tweeting out in the #JanetVanCrime hashtag. you can join us and stand up to yet another fucking erasure of a female character. Keep an eye on the #janetvancrime tag on tumblr for panels, livestreams, and links. Please don’t stay silent about this.

You can watch the Ant-Man panel here.

for every credit I want to give Marvel, they turn around and do this crap

as bad as making Victoria Hand a ‘woman in a refrigerator’ since while I never liked how she viewed Coulson or the team, I feel like she was created to be a plot point to a male’s story (hence the women in refrigerators reference)

what the hell, Marvel?

Okay I just want to defend Marvel for a moment.  20th Century Fox owns the X-Men, just like they own the rights to the Fantastic Four, which is why they’re making a reboot like Sony did for Spiderman or they’d lose the rights and those would go right back to Marvel central so they could be included in the franchise.

That being said, whenever Marvel makes a reference to ‘mutants’ they have to acknowledge and pay tribute to the X-Men franchise, currently owned by 20th Century Fox.  That’s why in AoS they call potential superpowered people ‘gifted individuals’ when they clearly just have mutant powers.

Another note, in the movie release date thing that’s been spreading around tumblr, they show the title card for “The Inhumans” in 2019, which is essentially Marvel’s reboot of mutants so they can start using that to explain superpowers again.

Jan was originally a mutant with the power to change size, Marvel cant acknowledge the existence of mutants without paying for it.  Jan isnt going to be an Avenger.

It’s simple when you think about it.

a) two mutants, wanda and pietro, are starring in the upcoming film, avengers: age of ultron. they are mutants. they are being called miracles.

b) janet van dyne is not a mutant in the 616, earth prime, first comics universe. she is a mutant in ultimates. 

c) what are you even talking about

d) are you saying they can’t do size changing heroes because that is LITERALLY WHAT ANT-MAN IS

You also have to remember that in order to have Jan, you have to have Hank. And he’s not a very nice person, what with him beating his wife and all.

What?  Why?

Most of the MCU has been more based on Ultimates, in terms of how they got their powers, even if they then went for more 616 personalities.  In Ultimates, Hank Pym developed his “Pym particles” by studying Janet’s mutation.  He got them from her.

We may not be able to have mutants in the MCU, but the presence of Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch shows that the studio is willing to work around that.  Make her part alien.  Give her a lab accident.  Make her a fucking genius scientist like she was in Ultimates, and have her develop her own goddamn superserum.  Saying Janet requires Hank is like saying Tony requires Steve.  It’s nice to have them.  There is no requirement.

Janet Van Dyne was a founding Avenger.  She named the team.  She is a prominent, important female superheroine with actual super powers, who could have been played by an Asian actress (again, Ultimates), giving us a woman of color in a position of FUCKING AWESOME.  Saying “oh, we can’t have her without Hank, and we can’t change his character to have him not be a wife-beater, so we can’t have her” is not just uncool, it’s wrong.

The Winter Soldier’s costume consists of a leather jacket, reinforced combat trousers, and boots. From an in-universe perspective, the main thing we have to consider here is that this costume is obviously not Bucky’s choice. It doesn’t look like normal clothes because it’s not for his personal comfort or convenience, it’s designed for efficiency. Also, he probably spends a fair amount of time being dressed and undressed by other people, much like how his hair and nails are probably cut by some lab tech whenever he’s defrosted from HYDRA’s cryofreeze. Actually, his hair is the only thing that doesn’t make sense in this context because long hair is not exactly practical in a combat situation, but I’ll allow it because that’s how he looks in the comics. Plus, the long hair makes him look less like 1940s Bucky and more like the Winter Soldier, hiding behind a curtain of sullen grunge misery.

From a design perspective, there are several things that I really enjoyed about the Winter Soldier’s leather jacket. Looking back at Bucky’s uniform in the first Captain America movie, it’s clear that it was part of the inspiration for the Winter Soldier’s costume. If you look at the button flaps along the front and the overall stockiness of the silhouette, you’ll see a lot of similarities. Also, the straps across the Winter Soldier’s chest make his jacket look kind of like a straitkjacket. A horrible straitjacket that is probably his only item of clothing and is used to strap him down to various lab benches so evil scientists can wipe his brain and force him to murder more people. THIS IS THE MOST DEPRESSING SUPERHERO MOVIE OF ALL TIME. Ugh. Even the Winter Soldier’s clothes are suffused with misery and horror, especially after you’ve seen him shirtless and strapped into that brainwashing machine, like a fragile sea creature whose protective exoskeleton has been forcibly removed.

Hey so apparently kekkai, where Syne has so kindly hosted me forever, is going away soonish. I never tracked any stats on that site so I don’t know if it was used at all really. My sense is that most people just stream on YouTube, right? I can’t remember the last time I downloaded a vid, anyway.

So, I can move them to a new place— hosting and bandwidth is practically free these days—or I can just let it slide, which is what I’m leaning towards. Thoughts? What do other people do?

Add me to the list of people who would appreciate if you keep your vids available for download.
