Thor: Ragnarok's Tessa Thompson Thinks the MCU's Phase 4 Will Embrace Diversity

Thor: Ragnarok's Tessa Thompson Thinks the MCU's Phase 4 Will Embrace Diversity

Following MCU star Anthony Mackie’s criticism of Marvel movies for lack of diversity, and his desire to use his status as the co-lead of The Falcon and the Winter Soldier to push for more diverse representation on Marvel Studios’ projects, Tessa Thompson, who will reprise her role as Valkyrie in Thor: Love and Thunder, thinks that Phase 4 will more fully embrace those ideals. As part of Variety’s Actors on Actors series, Thompson and Ramy’s Ramy Youssef spoke about the topic and why it’s so important to the fandom at large. “I think in this next phase of Marvel, we’re really talking about what representation looks like in those spaces,” Thompson explained. “Because the truth is these movies travel globally in such huge ways and if you can represent people that are of color, if you can represent people with disabilities, if you can represent the LGBTQIA community inside of these films, it’s a pretty big deal.” [widget path=”global/article/imagegallery” parameters=”albumSlug=endgame-where-the-hell-were-these-characters-when-the-avengers-needed-them&captions=true”] “There’s millions and millions of people, particularly young people, that show up to the cinema,” Thompson continued. “And I think if you can show them something that looks like them, they feel valued. Particularly inside of these narratives of the comic books, that’s what it’s all about. It’s that our differences make us special.” “I’m really excited that we’re able to continue to push the bounds of that and that I’m able to do that with Valkyrie, because there’s so many cool queer characters in the comic books and they should have a place on-screen.” Since the onset of COVID-19, the MCU’s Phase 4 schedule has been reshuffled a few times. The latest iteration has Thor: Love and Thunder opening February 11, 2022. Ragnarok director Taika Waititi will return for the film and has promised to “double down” on the craziness. Thor: Love and Thunder will feature Natalie Portman’s Jane Foster as Thor and Christian Bale as a yet-to-be-revealed villain.

Here's How To Find Pascal In Animal Crossing: New Horizons

Pascal isn’t a newcomer to the Animal Crossing series, but he did make his first appearance in Animal Crossing: New Horizons after wave one of its summer update went live this week.

He can also gift you pearls, a rare crafting item requires for certain recipes, including the new mermaid set.How To Find Pascal On Your IslandYou can find Pascal while swimming and diving in your island’s oceans.

Shia LaBeouf Really Tattooed His Chest for Suicide Squad Director's Crime Movie

Shia LaBeouf Really Tattooed His Chest for Suicide Squad Director's Crime Movie

Shia LaBeouf really got his chest and torso heavily tattooed for Suicide Squad director David Ayer’s new movie The Tax Collector. “He’s one of the best actors I’ve worked with, and he’s the most committed to body and soul,” Ayer told /Film (via Newsweek). “He had a tooth pulled on Fury, and then on Tax Collector, he got his whole chest tattooed. So he kind of goes all in, and I’ve never known anyone that committed.” The Tax Collector sees LaBeouf play “Creeper,” the right hand man and best friend of Bobby Soto’s protagonist, David. One of the tattoos on LaBeouf’s torso reads “Creeper,” which sparked much speculation whether it was real when paparazzi photos of a shirtless LaBeouf surfaced online last year. Shia LaBeouf as “Creeper” in The Tax Collector. (Credit: RLJE Films) In The Tax Collector, David and Creeper collect debts owed by local gangs to the crime lord Wizard. Their lives and business are upended when Wizard’s old rival returns to L.A. from Mexico looking to take over. As you can see from the trailer below, LaBeouf appears very steely and intense in the role. Heavily tattooed characters are nothing new for a David Ayer film, as most notably seen in his adaptation of DC Comics’ Suicide Squad that featured Jared Leto’s Joker and his infamous “damaged” forehead tattoo. In recent months, Ayer has revealed morsels of new info about Suicide Squad, such as whether Joker intended to push Harley Quinn out of a helicopter, if an “Ayer Cut” of Suicide Squad would be easy to complete, that most of Jared Leto’s Joker footage “remains unseen,” and how Deadpool turned Suicide Squad into a comedy. Check out the world premiere trailer for The Tax Collector! In Theaters, VOD and Digital August 7th and Oct 26th for the rest of the world! #thetaxcollectormovie @cedarparkent @rljefilms pic.twitter.com/pZkgKRy49Q— George Lopez (@georgelopez) July 2, 2020 Shia LaBeouf, meanwhile, explored what makes him tick as a human being and an actor in last year’s autobiographical film Honey Boy, which won him rave reviews. LaBeouf both scripted and played a version of his own father in the indie drama. Viewers can see more of Shia LaBeouf’s Creeper (and his real tattoos) when The Tax Collector — which also stars Cinthya Carmona and George Lopez — debuts in theaters, on digital, and On Demand on August 7.
