"This is not new and it's not going to come from just us. We need people who aren't black. We need people who aren't brown.

Meanwhile, rumors of Cavill returning to the DCEU has fans speculating which movie will be his first stop, said to be in the form of a brief cameo. The sequel to Shazam seems like a natural choice, considering the first film was originally supposed to have a Cavill cameo before they were forced to use a body double. Aquaman 2 is also a reasonable bet, as is the standalone Black Adam feature that has been in development for over a decade. Wherever Superman does end up showing up, let's hope he looks as badass as in the fan art. … [Read more...] about Henry Cavill’s Black Suit Superman Rises in Zack Snyder’s Justice League Fan Art
Love, Victor (Hulu, June 19th)From the writers of Love, Simon — and apparently set in “the same world” as the 2018 movie, which means we’ve got ourselves a Love, Simoniverse! — this teen drama follows Victor (Michael Cimino), a new student who’s just transferred to Creekwood High in Atlanta from his hometown in Texas.

I haven’t really decided yet, but it’s coincidental to me that his last three albums include his name: Yeezus, and Pablo was based off this alias Paul, and then with Ye — I kind of think, Has he been doing this a while? Because if you look at Yeezus he was dressed in black leather and fighting cameramen, and just this super angry, mean guy. Then with Pablo he has this mental breakdown. And now we get Ye. And just, was this Bowie-esque? Was he playing characters and the albums were reflecting that? I don’t want to be misconstrued — I don’t want to say that’s for sure what he’s doing, that he’s playing characters and whatever he does shouldn’t be taken seriously because it’s all characters. Because I don’t know. I just think it’s kind of coincidental that these three albums all kind of tell this story of his life. Musicians do that a lot, but I’m curious if that somehow ties in. … [Read more...] about Kanye’s New Album Is Out. So, How About That Performance Art Theory?
