ASA BUTTERFIELD MIGHT PLAY SPIDER-MAN
While the new Spider-Man has been mentioned in about 54% of Big Screen Scoop articles so far it has been a while, but fear not true-believers, as there is something to say about Sony’s Spider-Man (no the new one, no, the new new one) once again, as it appears a front-runner has emerged on Sony’s list of potential Peter Parker players. Pppp.
According to Deadline, Asa Butterfield is top of the list to be the new, cross-studio webhead. Nothing is set in stone yet but of those shortlisted, Butterfield is consider “first among equals”. You might recognise Butterfield from the Ender’s Game movie that either you didn’t feel comfortable seeing or didn’t know the existence of. We may well see the first appearance of the new Spider-Man in the upcoming Marvel Studios film Captain America: Civil War (along with practically every other superhero) before returning to Sony for his own films, all set with Peter Parker in high school. Butterfield would be a good fit for a young Spidey, because although all Internet sources say that he’s 18, come on. Look at his little face. There’s no way they haven’t got that wrong by at least 10 years.
IN THUNDERDOME, TWO MEN’S RIGHT ACTIVISTS ENTER, ARE PRESUMABLY HAPPY BECAUSE THERE ARE NO ICKY WOMEN THERE TO RUIN IT
Mad Max: Fury Road is out in cinemas worldwide now and already has received near-unanimous praise, particularly for incredible, authentic stunt-work. There are some people who are not happy though, but don’t worry, it’s just people who a) haven’t seen the film yet and b) are usually only unhappy for dumb reasons anyway.
Yes apparently Men’s Rights Activists are calling for a boycott of the film because it is “feminist propaganda” because Charlize Theron is in it and doing things. Aaron Carey, blogger on the website “Return of Kings” (*snort*) is distressed because Mad Max at first appeared to be a “straight up guy film” with Tom Hardy’s Max front-and-center, but now, dribbles Carey
“Charlize Theron kept showing up a lot in the trailers, while Tom Hardy (Mad Max) seemed to have cameo appearances. Theron sure talked a lot during the trailers while I don’t think I’ve heard one line from Hardy. And finally, Theron’s character barked orders to Mad Max. Nobody barks orders to Mad Max,”
Yes, nobody gives orders to Max, least of all a woman, so says someone who has clearly never seen Beyond Thunderdome. Men are being duped says Carey and other MRAs, into seeing “American culture” destroyed before there very eyes, because this Australian franchise directed by an Australian, formerly starring an Australian and now starring an Englishmen is showing women doing something other than getting raped and murdered. As if I wasn’t excited enough for this film already, now I know it’s going to be making useless babies upset. I think I’ll go dash off to see it right now, maybe twice.
