i can’t believe people get so angry about a bisexual spider-man. whatever. have your shitty bi/homophobic opinions. you’re an asshole anyway. i just can’t believe you’re robbing everyone of all the glorious ‘swings both ways’ jokes
It’s about fucking mutants stop trying to making this meaningful.
Media—comics, film, literature, video games—exist for us to find our own meaning and value in it. Especially mutants, which are a super powerful and accessible metaphor for nearly anyone who has ever felt maligned for reasons beyond their control. Shut up.
The X-Men have been an allegory for racism ever since their creation you fucking idiot
If that hasn’t been blatantly obvious from the first issue you picked up, then I don’t know what kinda shit you’re on.
Also, fun fact, the movies show the divide between humans and mutants as an allegory for the LGBT+ civil rights movement going on now.
In a facebook post by X-Men movie writer Zach Stentz:
And in an interview on why he chose to play Magneto, Sir Ian McKellan said:
"I was sold it by Bryan [Singer, the director of the X-Men movies] who said, ‘Mutants are like gays. They’re cast out by society for no good reason. And, as in all civil rights movements, they have to decide: Are they going to take the Xavier line — which is to somehow assimilate and stand up for yourself and be proud of what you are, but get on with everybody — or are you going to take the alternative view — which is, if necessary, use violence to stand up for your own rights. And that’s true. I’ve come across that division within the gay rights movement.”
Marvel has always been about seeing yourself within the characters. Spider-man even though he has super powers, has every day life problems. Making the right decisions, money issues, relationship issues, etc. etc. X-men have always been about discrimination. Whether it’s Race, gender, or sexual orientation. If you don’t like it, go read/watch DC movies about billionaires and aliens.
You know, I think spending over a decade of your life with either Clint Barton OR Tony Stark will wear your face down into the same default expression.
…I know that look.
i need a movie that’s just pepper and nat and loki having a night on the town being sassy bitches and swapping war stories about their ridiculous pet superheroes
ridiculous pet superheroes
Did someone say ridiculous pet superheroes? You’ve got to go a long way to beat Bucky ‘This is the worst idea ever, Steve’ Barnes.
i just want a deadpool movie
And all that would happen is him jumping through different superhero movies. Interacting with the others and annoying them mercilessly
i’d pay for tickets for that. i’d fund that directly
and he occasionally turns to the camera to talk to the audience
can spiderman make a cameo appearance?
what do you mean cameo, spiderman’s the love interest
Marvel character headshots/busts
Wow, I am loving this style so much >.<
For years there’s been rainstorms obstructing the clarity of Deadpool’s sexuality but last night the skies cleared when current author Gerry Duggan confirmed Deadpool’s pansexuality on twitter.
…to the surprise of absolutely no-one.
