This was my interview with the Executive Producers from Constantine. I asked a question to David S Goyer regarding the rumors on Constantine and the bisexual erasure that has been floating around the internet.

I tried to keep my question respectful, as I’m a junior journalist, and didn’t want to rock the boat. …getting accused of being a fake geek girl, being told that because he wasn’t bisexual until 12 years into the comics it doesn’t really matter….was not what I expected. The guy picked a fight with me, and as someone who genuinely has loved his screen writing work, I was really disappointed.

I understand that he may be defensive, given the amount of questions he’s been getting on the subject recently, but speaking to me like this wasn’t…called for? 

I will say the other producer, Daniel Cerone, was very nice and gracious, as was the entirety of the cast. I can only hope that Mr. Goyer was just running on little sleep.

But still, some of my followers wanted me to ask the question, and I did. Here is your answer. (Also I know I should have said Vertigo, not Image—that I got some of my facts wrong, but I was a bit flustered, so I think I can be forgiven the mistake).

I think the absolute worst part of this is the fact that both of them (meaning the producers, not Mr. Goyer and the interviewer) seem to be implying that the only way to explicitly acknowledge his bisexuality onscreen is to have him sleep with a man. That and the fact that he is basically saying over and over again that bisexuality is just unimportant (and yes, that really is the implication of “it’s unimportant to the character” it really really is.) Apparently being a smoker has waaaaay more affect on what kind of person someone is. That’s new information to me.

Earth is definitely warming… thanks to this sick burn!

I know what you’re thinking. There’s no way you’re gonna watch seven minutes of C-SPAN2. You wouldn’t even watch seven minutes of C-SPAN1, amirite?!

What if I told you that contained within this seven minutes is the most epic smackdown of congressional climate science denial ever uttered in the halls of the U.S. Capitol? Perhaps the most sick and depressing call-out of those who refuse to accept science since John Oliver invited Bill Nye out on stage?  

Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI) is about to give that to you.

Here he is scolding climate conspiracy theorist, science denier, and recipient of more than $1 million from the fossil fuel industry, Sen. James Inhofe (R-Alternate Reality), after Inhofe blocked a resolution that would have simply acknowledged the reality of man-made climate change.

"The only place… where denial is anything credible any longer, is here in Congress, where the money from the fossil fuel industry still has a vicious effect."

If it weren’t such a dire issue, I’d be smiling. Thanks to Phil Plait for posting this.

Actor Chris Pratt beamed down to our sector of the universe Monday night to surprise an auditorium full of deserving kids in a special New York Daily News and Disney Studios sponsored charity screening of the superheroes-in-space flick.

And the 35-year-old actor who plays the hero Star-Lord in the Marvel movie stayed in the theater until every last one of them who wanted to take a picture with him got their selfie.

“That was really fun, this is what is all about,” said a visibly touched Pratt after the show. “I get impatient sometimes being on a promotional tour all the time, but something like this I would sit here as long as it took to take a picture with every one of those guys.”

“Tonight was really special to me.”

Pratt stayed long past the time his security detail was supposed to whisk him away to answer questions and give some words of wisdom.

Holy shit, this guy …

The cover to Saga’s first hardcover collection. And some quotes from the creators on just why they decided to give comic book retailers across the country a few more grey hairs after the cover of the series’ first issue and tpb got them so much flak:

Just doubling-down on our breastfeeding stance, aren’t we? – Fiona Staples

Some stores won’t even rack the first volume because the breast-feeding is controversial, but…fuck them. – Brian K. Vaughan

Just fabulous, really. <3

COLTON HAYNES DONS ARSENAL’S RED FAUX-LEATHERS FOR ‘ARROW’ SEASON 3

By Andrew Wheeler

When Colton Haynes joined The CW’s Arrow in season two as Roy Harper, it was only a matter of time before he got gussied up in his best red Arrow cosplay as Arsenal — given that, you know, that’s who Roy Harper is in the comics. I mean, he could have been Speedy or, oh, Red Arrow, I guess, but since Speedy is a daft name and they don’t even want to call the main guy in the show Green Arrow, they kind of have to go with Arsenal, though that’s a rotten codename too. But I digress.

Entertainment Weekly has unveiled the first official look at Colton Haynes in his dark red Robin Hood suit. Doesn’t he look brooding and moody and serious? And isn’t that an awful lot of lacing?
