MCU Meme: [2/8] Characters
"The battle of the New York was the end of the world. This - now - is the new world. People are different. They have access to tech, to formula, secrets they’re not ready for."
Batman Eternal # 3
Scott Snyder and James Tynion IV with Ray Fawkes, Tim Seeley, John Layman and Jason Fabok.
WOOP THERE IT IS.
and this was before he played Azog.
friendly reminder that only Maori actors have ever had lines in LotR/The Hobbit: Manu Bennett, who played Azog, and Lawrence Makoare, who played Lurtz (the Uruk-hai who kills Boromir), Gothmog (the Orc in Return of the King), and the Witch King of Angmar.
notice a trend?

Prepare yourselves for a lil Star Trek spam, guys, basically there’s some real shit going down in the Star Trek fandom in the form of Bob Orci.
Bob Orci is a screenwriter commonly associated with Alex Kurtzman and JJ Abrams, and is notorious for being a real A-hole to fans. Like, when it became pretty clear that the Trekkies weren’t fans of Star Trek Into Darkness (for a lot of reasons: incoherent plot, whitewashing, objectification of the women) he got really defensive, insulted fans, attacked them verbally, and basically was just a real douchecanoe.
Now, even after that, the bad press regarding the Trekkies and the bad press regarding the way he handled a lot of things from the film, he’s gunning to direct the next movie.
This isn’t just any movie for us, either. It’s set to premiere on our 50th Anniversary, September 8, 2016. It’s really amazing and special to us and we’re really excited and we’re desperate to make sure that Bob Orci - a man that the Trek fandom does not like and does not respect the source material we all love - isn’t the man in charge of the franchise whenever the 50th rolls around.
So you might see us pushing Star Trek stuff and also the tag #StopOrci2014, but that’s just because we’re really upset and we’re trying to generate momentum and get Paramount to understand that we don’t want Bob Orci to take over Star Trek
list of female reboot characters who aren’t A) mother of a main character or B) shown in their underwear at least once:
- ………….yeah I got nothin’
ANd a reminder that two of the four women in the Reboot aren’t even named within the script. So for those people who are casual fans have no idea that Winona is Winona or Amanda is Amanda.
Instead they are only known by their relationship to their sons and husbands.
Winona is George Kirk’s Sweetheart and Jim Kirk’s Mother
Amanda is Spock’s Mother, and his Father’s Whore.
Ain’t that swell?
#HOLY SHIT #that last comment #I have seen the movie multiple times and I didn’t even #I didn’t even notice that #I HAD TO GO THE TRANSCRIPT AND CTRL+F TO CHECK BECAUSE I ALMOST DIDN’T BELIEVE IT #they didn’t give AMANDA HER NAME #or Winona but they actually TOOK AMANDA’S NAME AWAY #and then KILLED HER #FUCK #FUCK THE WORLD #and they gave Uhura a first name but it was passed between male characters like an object #accidentally dropped by one and greedily picked up by the other #never given freely #EXCUSE ME I NEED TO GO PUNCH SOMETHING
I feel like there’s some really rageworthy meta potential here about how men’s names are important, but women’s names don’t matter at all (unless, as perceptively pointed out above, that name can be used by male characters to signify possession/etc).
#Think about this: we learn both Jim’s grandfathers’ names in that opening scene#neither of whom are present or ever in the movie at all#but not Jim’s mother’s name#even though she’s right there#in the scene#givin’ birth to the main character#And they couldn’t have had George tag on a ”Winona!” to any part of his dialogue?#like obviously the granfathers’ names were relevant for good reason - of course they were#but they could just have easily have mentioned Winona’s name too y’know?

PLEASE do not be an asshole to these people, I BEG you. Keep it short and sweet and POLITE. No more than maybe 6 sentences or it’ll go immediately into the round file aka trash. Trust me, I’ve done it myself or have turned it over to Studio security as a risk factor if the writer sounded like a nut-job or was advocating violence in any way.
Do not send notes or emails to Rob Moore or Frederick Hartsberry, two names I’ve heard tossed around. They have nothing to do with physical production and you’ll just be bothering them needlessly.
Do send notes (NOT EMAILS THEY WILL NEVER READ THEM) to the following executives if you absolutely feel that you must:
Brad Grey, Chairman & CEO
Adam Goodman, President Paramount Film Group
Marc Evans, President of Production
Lee Rosenthal, President of Physical Production
Address: Paramount Pictures 5555 Melrose Avenue Hollywood, CA 90038
I do not have buildings or suite addresses except for one and I’m not giving it out, sorry.
I AM BEGGING YOU *PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE* BE POLITE.
One of these men is my former boss (who is an ABSOLUTE WONDERFUL HUMAN BEING whom I love dearly and heartily respect) and I am going to see him this summer and I don’t want to have to feel the need to apologize for the fandom. I do not want to lose his goodwill or be blacklisted from the Studio for associating with fandom. PLEASE.
