‘The Nevers’ director Joss Whedon goes unhinged and anti-Trump for 4th of July

The Nevers director Joss Whedon goes unhinged and anti-Trump for 4th of July

Hollywood is a cesspool of unhinged leftism. That’s news to nobody who’s paying attention. But it’s still disconcerting when people’s whose work I respected forces me to put them on my No-Watch list. Director Joss Whedon is the latest talent to showcase his combination of unjustified anger and ignorance.

Since it reads like a drunken rant, I’ll post the screenshot, just in case he sobers up and deletes it later.

The Avengers and Age of Ultron director hasn’t put out work since 2015 following family issues that sidelined him. But he’s working on his first television series since directing an episode of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. in 2013. The new series, called The Nevers, is in production now with a 2020 release date.

In the meantime, the director is content insulting the President, law enforcement, and “illegal militias” while claiming President Trump will use force and “treasonous criminality” to take the 2020 election. And he decided this was the best thing to post on the 4th of July.

Our EIC called for a boycott of Hollywood last month. I’m not proud of my addiction to television and cinema, but I’m taking steps to build my “No-Watch” list. Joss Whedon, whose work I’ve loved, has shown he doesn’t deserve my dollars.

Stop blaming Sony for Spider-Man debacle. It’s Disney’s fault, folk.

Stop blaming Sony for Spider-Man debacle Its Disneys fault folk

The Twitterverse is all aflutter over Sony and Disney’s inability to make a new deal that would allow Spider-Man to continue being part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Nearly every fanboy is outraged at Sony, but this outrage is completely misplaced. It was Disney’s greed that got in the way.

Sony wanted to continue the current deal that brought Spider-Man’s two recent solo-films to the big screen. They were madly successful as star Tom Holland became widely acclaimed as having the best portrayal Spider-Man. But Disney didn’t like the deal because it kept most of the profits in Sony’s hands.

Marvel knew going in that they’d play second fiddle to Sony on all Spider-Man movies. They chose to make the deal for the sake of the MCU and it worked wonders for both companies. But Disney got greedy.

Spider-Man Out of the MCU: Marvel, Sony Can’t Reach Deal

A dispute at the top levels of both companies has essentially resulted in Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige being nixed from future Spider-Man projects, according to Deadline. Disney had asked for a 50/50 co-financing agreement between the two studios on future Spider-Man films. Again according to Deadline’s sources, Sony turned that offer down. Sony proposed keeping the arrangement similar to the terms that dictated the first two Spider-Man MCU films, such that Disney would only receive 5% of first dollar gross. Disney refused that deal.

Sony wanted to keep the deal they both agreed to from the beginning. Disney’s the one who got greedy. Blaming Sony for this is like blaming a divorce on the person who was cheated on. It’s Disney who’s being unfaithful to Sony… and fans.

‘Godfather’ star Gianni Russo on Chris ‘Fredo’ Cuomo’s rant

'Godfather' star Gianni Russo on Chris 'Fredo' Cuomo's rant

When CNN anchor Chris Cuomo was filmed delivering an unhinged rant to a heckler at a restaurant, one of the things many people took offense to was his declaration that the term “Fredo” was to Italian-Americans as the “n-word” is to African-Americans. This has been completely debunked since then with guests on his own show using the name to refer to Donald Trump Jr. But that didn’t keep CNN from backing their guy.

TMZ caught up with Gianni Russo, a star from The Godfather who told the reality of the situation from three unique perspectives. First, he said it wasn’t a racial slur and clearly referred to the weaker brother, a perspective he understands as a star of the film. Second, he knows the Cuomo family well and couldn’t believe Chris would have said that. Third, knowing father Mario Cuomo, former governor of New York, leads him to believe the elder Cuomo would have smacked his son had he heard him say what he did.

No real repercussions are expected against Cuomo from his employers at CNN.

Here’s a video from TMZ of Russo’s perspective:

Brother reports death of Cedric Benson

Update: It has been confirmed.

Former NFL and Texas Longhorns running back Cedric Benson has reportedly died, according to a Facebook post written by his brother and another that he shared. Police have not released the names of victims involved in a motorcycle accident early this morning, but speculation has connected the two.

Police are blaming speed and visibility on the accident, which happened when a man and a woman on a motorcycle collided with a minivan that was pulling out.

Here’s Benson’s post as well as the post he shared:

Benson was one of the most prolific running backs in college football history for the Longhorns before being drafted #4 overall by the Chicago Bears in the 2005 draft. He played in the NFL for three teams and had three 1000+ yards rushing in three seasons with the Cincinnati Bengals.

This report is unconfirmed by police or local media. His name trended quickly on Twitter as fans try to determine if the brother’s report is accurate. We’ll update this story as more details come to light.
