x Deadline delivered a double whammy of casting scoops late last night when the outlet revealed that Danai Gurira, star of The Walking Dead and Marvel’s Black Panther, had opened talks to join Godzilla vs Kong and Star Trek 4.

Clarkson (Jessica Jones, The Defenders), the first female filmmaker appointed at the helm of a Star Trek movie, though there’s currently no mention of who Gurira may be playing. We imagine it’s a fairly major role, given the actor’s blistering rise to stardom, but it should be noted that this project is totally unrelated to the one in development from J.J.

That may well present some logistical issues of its own, … [Read more...] about The Walking Dead’s Danai Gurira Circling Star Trek 4

Star Trek has cultivated a reputation as the optimistic, intellectual science fiction franchise over its 52 years. Starfleet is ostensibly a military organization, but its main aim is exploration, discovering new life and new civilizations to better understand the universe and the people in it.

We aspire to the likes of Jean-Luc Picard and James T. Kirk.But there are more than a few moments that show the Federation’s best in less than idealistic situations within the fiction, behind the scenes, and in different projects altogether.

However, while Star Wars and Star Trek share a futuristic setting, there are differences between them that could be basis for objective assessment of their relative merits.It appears that the essential distinction between both franchises is their different perspectives of the possible social and political conditions of future societies. Star Trek adopts an idealistic and optimistic view that technological progress will be accompanied by moral and ethical advancement, and a drive towards social and political Utopian ideals. Star Wars suggests that technological progress will not by itself push social and political progress and that primitive conditions could co-exist with extreme levels of … [Read more...] about 20 Hilarious Memes That Prove Star Wars Is Better Than Star Trek
