Well if you’re Marvel, I guess you might drag up the ghost of Stan Lee to do some last minute PR. An effective tactic? Er, maybe … ? Creepy and ghoulishly opportunistic? You betcha.
Finally, Taylor Swift has promised to grace us with more of her political opinion.

Throughout the years masked crime fighters have faced some pretty scary enemies, though Marvel and the stars of the studio’s latest blockbuster (maybe -- time will tell) Captain Marvel, may have outdone themselves in presenting an even more terrifying uber-baddie. In 2019, enter civilization’s greatest foe … sexism. According to an Entertainment Weekly article, “Intergalactic odd couple Brie Larson and Samuel L. Jackson return to 1995 to fight aliens,” and “Sexism.”
“A 15-year-old girl can get an abortion without her parent’s permission but she can’t see this movie without adult supervision?” Pure Flix Entertainment Executive VP Ken Rather recently said to The Hollywood Reporter. “That’s sad.” Yes it is, but it’s true.

The Annual GLAAD Media Awards Nominations recently hit the internet rounds, rewarding all things gay in entertainment and journalism. Of course all the gayest staples were present in terms of movies and TV shows. Gay teen dramedy Love, Simon rounded out the list for “Outstanding Movies,” while Will & Grace, Modern Family, and Dear White People were listed as contenders for the TV nod. My money’s on Will & Grace for it’s very flam rendition of our 16th president, “Gaybraham Lincoln” and his “Lincoln log.” Really.
Univision anchor Jorge Ramos continues to triple down on in his ongoing war of words against proposed border security initiatives. His latest column picks up where his New York Times piece left off.

The New York Times recently saw fit to print an op-ed by Univision’s senior news anchor, Jorge Ramos, titled “Trump Is the Wall”.

One of the world's most successful brands committed ideological hara-kiri this week. Recognized around the world as a symbol of manly civility for more than a century, Gillette will now be remembered as the company that did itself in by sacrificing a massive consumer base at the altar of progressivism.
