It’s the end of August

So here’s a status update!

I’m handing in an excerpt of my latest writing project today! Novellas, kids. So hawt right now. Just putting the finishing touches on the intro letter right now.

Then I’m having lunch, then I’m leaving to drive to NoCal to play a tournament this weekend.

Then it’ll be September, and I’ll be working on some new cool stuff!

I’m feeling very humble and grateful at the end of August 2014, and I hope you all have a wonderful, wonderful weekend.

Yup, according to another mysterious source from Badass Digest (so take all this with a giant grain of salt), Marvel is currently “rethinking” how they plan to introduce Carol Danvers into the cinematic universe. According to rumors, Age of Ultron will end with Captain America assembling a new team of Avengers for Phase 3; in Whedon’s original script, Captain Marvel (referred to as “Ms. Marvel”) was listed as one of the characters in that scene.

But apparently Marvel’s getting cold feet over a possible end-of-movie cameo for Danvers. “Not because they’re against the character–my sources assure me she is coming and it’s very plausible she could be on the team in Avengers 3.” Devin Faraci writes.  “They basically aren’t certain they want to just drop her into the MCU fully formed in a team movie.”

He goes on to add that Marvel is trying to back away from the idea of “full-blown origin stories” for characters who don’t start out with powers and aren’t already on their respective paths when the movie opens, like Iron Man or Captain America:

They’re okay with opening Doctor Strange like Thor—the characters exist, have their abilities, have their relationships, and as the movie goes on we learn the important background. That doesn’t mean they’re totally okay with just dropping a fully-formed character into Age of Ultron. This is part of the reason why you won’t see Black Panther in the movie, despite the film visiting Wakanda so Ultron can get vibranium. There’s enough time passed between the end of the action in Age of Ultron and that final scene for Carol Danvers to get powers, a costume and have a career as a hero, but the powers-that-be aren’t sure how this will play on film. Will dropping her in just be baffling to audiences? I think it’ll be an exciting hint in the way that many of the credit tags are exciting hints.

Yeah, I’m not sure what to think about this. True, I’d rather have a Carol or a T’Challa that’s better integrated into their debut than one who’s given a glorified cameo—but the longer the wait, the less optimistic I am that we’re ever going to see them. What do you think?

This is actually a fairly easy dilemma, though. They can introduce Carol, plus a uniform and powers, at the end of the team movie, and then go back and do the origin story (*IF* they even want to do an origin story) as it takes place before, during, and/or after Avengers 2.

This is not hard, people. This is not hard.

We die containing a richness of lovers and tribes, tastes we have swallowed, bodies we have plunged into and swum up as if rivers of wisdom, characters we have climbed into as if trees, fears we have hidden in as if caves.

I wish for all this to be marked on by body when I am dead. I believe in such cartography - to be marked by nature, not just to label ourselves on a map like the names of rich men and women on buildings. We are communal histories, communal books. We are not owned or monogamous in our taste or experience.

linkaria said: Can you do a post on the historical / political / social significance of Black Panther and Wakanda? I know it has something to do with the Black Panther Party and western exploitation of Africa but I'm a bit fuzzy on the details. Thank you!

wearewakanda:

Sure! There’s a relationship between the Black Panther character and the Black Panther Party for Self-Defense but not in the way you might be thinking. T’Challa was actually introduced a few months before the founding of the BPP. Stan Lee and Jack Kirby had been working on the idea for a while already and were going to call him the “Coal Tiger”, meaning they were more focused on “jungle animals” than any political context.

image

Sadly, Marvel distanced itself from the name “Black Panther” as mainstream public perception of the BPP turned negative. Around the time T’Challa became an Avenger, he began going by “The Panther”. Later, he even used “Black Leopard” as a substitute, explicitly saying he didn’t want to be associated with the BPP.

image

While Marvel was willing to pit him against foes who were obvious “bad guys” (the Klan, the “Supremacists”, etc.), they didn’t really touch Western exploitation (in the sense that the US as a whole was complicit rather than just a few bad guys) until fairly recently. Hudlin especially stressed the idea that like other countries with valuable resources, Wakanda would certainly have to deal with other powerful countries that would want their cut (and would be willing to take it by force).

image

All that said, Wakanda and the Black Panther make social statements simply by existing. Wakanda provides an example of what Africa could be if its resources hadn’t been stolen. Black Panther is just a normal person of African descent who shows what fully-tapped potential looks like. Exposing readers to these ideas can be powerful so hopefully future writers will embrace that and continue to build on what has already been accomplished.

I LOVE A LOT OF FOOD OKAY? Movie popcorn, raw oysters, or roast chicken, depending on my mood.
  • 41:Last time you were insulted and what was it?
People I know don’t usually insult me. But I guess the last time was when some rando catcalled me, a couple of days ago. That’s pretty insulting.
  • 49:Last time you hung out with anyone?

I hung out with some friends last night! We made pasta and did dramatic readings of a romance novel. It was delightful!
