CANT RISK IT
Janet van Dyne, a founding member of the Avengers and the person who gave it its name, appears to have been erased from the MCU. Not in the roster when Avengers came out back in 2012, Jan was set for another opportunity to be a part of the team when Marvel announced Ant-Man. Unfortunately, from the announcements yesterday, Jan van Dyne was not even mentioned but someone else was: Hope van Dyne, later corrected to “Hope Pym”, Hank Pym’s daughter.
At best, Jan will either be a mention or a cameo or an easter egg. She will not be a part of the team she founded, she will not be a superhero. She’s either been swapped out for Hope Pym, who might take up the mantle because Marvel Studios thinks women are interchangeable, or she will be an easter egg at most.
Janet van Dyne, the heart and soul of the original Avengers and of every Avengers team she’s been on throughout the years, has been erased from the MCU.
If that seems like a fucking shitty thing for Marvel to do to you, we’re tweeting out in the #JanetVanCrime hashtag. you can join us and stand up to yet another fucking erasure of a female character. Keep an eye on the #janetvancrime tag on tumblr for panels, livestreams, and links. Please don’t stay silent about this.
for every credit I want to give Marvel, they turn around and do this crap
as bad as making Victoria Hand a ‘woman in a refrigerator’ since while I never liked how she viewed Coulson or the team, I feel like she was created to be a plot point to a male’s story (hence the women in refrigerators reference)
what the hell, Marvel?
Okay I just want to defend Marvel for a moment. 20th Century Fox owns the X-Men, just like they own the rights to the Fantastic Four, which is why they’re making a reboot like Sony did for Spiderman or they’d lose the rights and those would go right back to Marvel central so they could be included in the franchise.
That being said, whenever Marvel makes a reference to ‘mutants’ they have to acknowledge and pay tribute to the X-Men franchise, currently owned by 20th Century Fox. That’s why in AoS they call potential superpowered people ‘gifted individuals’ when they clearly just have mutant powers.
Another note, in the movie release date thing that’s been spreading around tumblr, they show the title card for “The Inhumans” in 2019, which is essentially Marvel’s reboot of mutants so they can start using that to explain superpowers again.
Jan was originally a mutant with the power to change size, Marvel cant acknowledge the existence of mutants without paying for it. Jan isnt going to be an Avenger.
It’s simple when you think about it.
adipose, what do you do to cheer yourself up when you’e sad?
We’re okay with being sad sometimes.
Yep, we forgot to tell you about Nega-Ohio, Ohio seems to be on a rift with an alternate universe, occasionally it opens up and we have to take up arms and fight off our alternate reality selves.
Although occasionally they just get stuck here and we have a weird population fluctuation because people are appearing and killing eachother. And they fact that you’re never really sure if your friends have been replaced by nega-friends. So you always have to keep on your toes and keep a switchblade in your back pocket to knife your friends and or family.
If we told other states about our problem, they’d think we were all psychopaths.
I feel like gay cake tricksters needs to be a tag now.
God bless them!
How do you know a wedding cake is gay? Does it have to shop a certain stores? Does it get coated in certain frosting? I mean, what’s the difference? The only difference is who is buying it and what is going on it. And even then, if it’s a proper wedding cake, it’ll just be a blank white cake with a bunch of ornate frosting that you’re getting paid to do.
So is it the ones ordering it? Two ladies walk in to buy a cake and freak out when they see how beautiful it’s going to look, are they lesbians? They could be, or they could be the bride and the maid of honor picking it out, or it could just be the bride and her mother. Are you just going to assume? Prepare to stop doing business forever, because you’ll have to ask people whether or not they’re gay, whether or not they’re trying to “trick you into making a gay cake”.
Sorry, I ranted a bit.
i still believe in h e r o e s
I love how the gif of the rock on sign at the bottom left is just obscure enough without the rest of these gifs that if you recognize it you’re a super marvel nerd
Is that fucking GRRM on a sofa with modern cersei, joffrey, jon snow, oberyn, and dany…and death, naturally
Yes. yes it is.
Advertising, you’re doing it right.
