Happy Birthday, dear Joanne ‘Kathleen’ Rowling!
I did a lot of research and it’s a subject that’s really important to me,” Tatiana said, tears forming in her eyes. “Yeah, it just means a lot to me that we could tell that story. And you know, I’m not a trans actor so there is a political sort of situation there and it’s not the most ideal, but what our show does is it explores identity. And what better way to explore it than through a trans male? We don’t see trans men on screen very often at all. And, you know, the best thing for me was when we heard the response to Tony, which was very polarized. But the best thing about it is it opens up a debate, and it opens up a discussion, and it makes the subject relevant and important and present in people’s thoughts, regardless of how they felt about Tony, whether they felt represented, whether they didn’t understand—whatever it is, these stories need to be told and we need to talk about trans stories and we need to have them represented to the point where it’s just, it’s just a given and it’s not exceptional anymore and trans actors get to step up and play these parts as well in the same way cisgender people have been doing it for a while. I felt a responsibility but I felt a large amount of gratitude and—”
“Joy?” co-star Maria Doyle Kennedy offered.

#THE FACT THAT SHE ACKNOWLEDGES THAT HER BEING CIS IS PROBLEMATIC WHEN PLAYING A TRANS CHARACTER

i hope i never see joss whedon in real life because i will corner him and demand to know why he doesnt think natasha romanoff is a hero because shes ~a spy~
go ahead fucker
#she lives among shades of grey but she is a big damn hero #ignorning all he comics like?? did you??? not watch the winter soldier??? #where she makes a point to tell civilains to get the hell away #where she /dumps her history onto the internet/ #and then has the gall to walk into capitol hill and effectively flip off the government#but lol shes a spy not a hero #’you dont have any moral high ground of any of that stuff’ EAT MY ENTIRE ASS #natasha is interesting because she has this terrible history thats soaked in blood #and she /chooses to be good/ #(‘i know what right looks like’)
Travis Fimmel: No, not at all. I think the show is great because it lets women be in powerful positions and be equal you know.
Kate doesn’t miss the other Hawkeye. At all. She just likes purple converse and H mugs a lot, ok?

First look at Wanda
#yeah this see look at this for fuck’s sake. look at her. she looks like a fucking baby #like this is this wide eyed oooh i’m soooo magic and so endearing won’t it be so painful to watch me be sUPER CRAZY??? lol #fuck oh my god she’s wearing a baby fucking nightgown and playing with wooden blocks #why are we doing this #why god #we deserve a better wanda maximoff
I mean. I really want to be positive about AoU but given that this is going to be a Whedon-written character, and how Elizabeth Olsen pretty much fetishizes Wanda’s mental illness in the interviews she gives, I’m…. not at all hopeful about this portrayal at all. Wanda deserves better than this.This is just River Tam the redux.
