A true Anyone Can Die work would have a rotating cast as main characters keep getting killed off. Such works do exist, but they are extremely rare.
Of course, that's for a series that runs for an appreciable length of time. Shorter works, such as a stand-alone movie, can do a true Anyone Can Die without the rotating cast.
And of course, there nothing bad per se with having obvious main characters that are going to survive. Just don't use Ass Pull to justify that.
So Riri Williams a.k.a. Ironheart is being planned to premiere on Marvel Rising. On one hand, I am glad she's getting the boost she deserves. On the other hand, her design for the show straightened out her hair.
Boy, I sure expect those blokes who blew their tops about She-Ra's redesign will also champion against this one. Right? Right??
I don't think they watch Marvel Rising or care about comic Riri.
Well they only care about women when they're sexualized. And white.
Hey, they want some Asian waifu too.
Fair point. D:
So Grownish, the spinoff of Blackish starring oldest daughter Zoey now in college, recently tackled the subject of consent.
The plot is as follows; Cash, Zoey's ex boyfriend has a one night stand with a girl. She tells her friend about it and soon it spreads across campus. Unfortunately, the amount of alcohol the girl had consumed was exaggerated as the story was re-told. This results in Cash being forced to leave the school and the school implementing an enthusiastic sober consent policy.
Most of the episode is Zoey and her friends sitting around and discussing the policy and what consent means. It's mostly well done showing how difficult it can be at times to understand and why the conversation needs to be had.
One of the issues of that episode I had was, to deal with the more darker parts of it, they constantly had "it DOES happen, just not to anyone here" or "oh I have FRIENDS who this have happened to"
I felt like it cheapened the trauma conversation, and was probably done to avoid having to deal with giving the characters baggage. But it definitely made that argument not very well written imo.
Huh, that must have been what my mother was watching the other day. Have to admit, it made me quite unconfortable, if only because trying to insert jokes in the middle of a talk about consent, since it's a comedy... doesn't work for me.
An interview with Yalitza Aparicio, on her newfound fame after Roma.
Max Landis, accused by more than a dozen women of sexual abuse, is being positioned to write the screenplay for a movie about “Me Too aboard a plane”. As opposed to the dozen women in writing who he’s harassed.

Goddammit, a dude probably shouldn’t be writing a Me Too thing in the first place, but Max Landis?!?!?!
Can I jump off that plane?
Me Too on a plane? So what does the terrorist release on the plane? Groping executive producers?
Insert that meme here about Michael Scott from The Office saying no repeatedly.
Max Landis has quite a few duds under his belt anyway, even if he didn't have this history.
@Tucker: Uh, when I read your post first, I thought that the news were related. Dear God, I am dumb.
Good for Yalitza tho, even if I am still iffy that the few times that indigenous latinoamerican people get the spotlight is in movies where "los prietos nunca pueden ser felices" ("brown people can never be happy").
By the way, anyone have heard of Tunche, a peruvian developed videogame set in the Peruvian jungle and that gained a bunch of popularity due to having Hat Kid from A Hat in Time as a playable character. I'm hyped for that one.

Is Max Landis related to John Landis? If so, that's one screwed up family.
Yup,they're related,Max Landis is a director solely because his father is
And then someone will yell, "Now I have had it with these motherf***ing sexual harassers on this motherf***ing plane!"
I'm honestly not sure if that will be stupid or humorously appropriate.
We're getting a Wicked movie.
This is so insanely stupid that it could reasonably be an Onion article.
There are no words.
Whoever's producing this has a black belt in missing the point.

Or They Just Didn't Care. I imagine some executive wanted to cash in on something topical, and didn't much care how they went about doing that.
Warrior, a t.v. series based on Bruce Lee's pitch for a t.v. series (which eventually became Kung Fu starring David Carradine) is debuting on Cinemax. Justin Lin, known for directing the Fast & The Furious movies, is directing.
My main concern is that without Lee, since well, we’ve all seen Kung Fu and it’s widely considered a classic of the Western genre, that it will come off as derivative.
