poetryondemand said: A dude friend demanded I "name one" female superhero who could head her own movie. I gave him a list. He said he hadn't heard of any, so they couldn't be A-listers. I said Captain Marvel, Black Widow, She-Hulk are solo titles. He said they still "couldn't handle" a solo movie. I gave up. (btw he also made several factual errors that, if he'd been a girl, the other dudes would've crucified him for, but they didn't say anything.) What are we supposed to do?

Kill him and eat him in front of the others.  It’s the only way they learn. 

Reminder that Iron Man wasn’t “A-list” before his first movie.

Erm….How was Iron Man not “A-List”? He has several solo titles and is one of the main protagonists in the Avengers…. Iron Man is pretty much the definition of “A-List”

See the bit where I said “Before his movie”. He wasn’t, he really wasn’t, one of the top names before a) Ellis and Granov’s Extremis arc/reboot and b) his first movie. 

Until that point he was moderately successful, within comics, but certainly wasn’t a huge hit, and crucially, very few people outside of comic readers had any idea who he was. 

People need to remember this.  Every. Day.  They need to remember before they argue that none of Marvel’s ladies are A-List enough to head a movie or even be a lead amongst an ensemble.  It’s very important.

and Guardians of the Galaxy is not an A-List team either.  Nowhere near. Ant-Man is not an A-List hero. Hank Pym or Scott Lang.

Remember this every time you think Black Widow isn’t good enough or Captain Marvel isn’t big enough or not enough people know who Monica Rambeau is.  Iron Man was not A-List before his movie.  It’s still argueable if he’s really A-List in the comics since his book is nowhere near a top seller.  Quite mediocre, actually

My brother and I were watching the Eighth Doctor movie last night and determined, upon investigation, that the autopsy attendant watching Frankenstein is in fact the same actor who plays bouncer Doug in How I Met Your Mother.

Alec Guinness as the Duke, the Banker, the Parson, the General, the Admiral, Young Ascoyne, Young Henry, and Lady Agathain in Kind Hearts and Coronets (Robert Hamer - 1949)

 It is so difficult to make a neat trump of killing people with whom one is not on friendly terms.

The most terrifying was undoubtedly the belligerent suffragette, Lady Agatha. This was the first time I had attempted to portray a woman, and although the part was not very taxing - being deliberately in terms of broad and shallow comedy - I do not feel, having completed the part, that my future on the screen lies in the direction of female impersonation.

Spanish poster for Kind Hearts And Coronets, retitled as a horror movie: “Eight Sentences Of Death!”

I remember loving this movie, but barely any of the details. Time for a rewatch!

A Muppet music video for “We Built This City”, recently uploaded by Disney UK. As I posted in the comments section, I absolutely love Scooter broom-dancing in the WBTC montage and wish we could’ve gotten more shots of that!
