Bradley Cooper and Vin Diesel 

Speaking their lines vs the final product

Why is Vin Diesel looking down? Is he worried he’s gonna forget his line?

Vin Diesel asked the director his inspiration for every line he did and did multiple takes until he was satisfied. He also recorded the line over 1,000 times and also recorded his lines in Mandarin, Portuguese, French, and Spanish so they could use his real voice in those versions. He’s looking at his lines because Vin Diesel is a  dedicated  motherfucking professional

And then he showed up at the LA premiere like this: 

Vin Diesel in an I AM GROOT shirt, on stilts, because he is awesome and magical

Stilts, people!

Vin Diesel is so fantastic every time I hear people mock him I just want to be like “excuse you, do you know of any other multi-racial actor in Hollywood who’s fronted a blockbuster franchise featuring an unashamedly multi-cultural cast full of primarily non-white actors, and who has done it unapologetically over and over again for *seven* installments? NO, YOU DON’T, SIT THE FUCK DOWN.”

<3 <3 <3

Vin Diesel makes goofy movies like The Pacifier so he can keep making Riddick movies. He even went so far as to found Tigon Studios to make sure the Riddick video game was good (it was awesome).

I love Vin Diesel!

In high school and college, when Vin Diesel really rose to box office prominence, I used to hate Vin Diesel because he seemed like the kind of dumb macho guy that A. made fun of me a lot and B., well, A’s enough, isn’t it? 

And then he went on “The Tonight Show” and talked in depth about his high school life as a hardcore D&D player. So. I’m on board with Vin Diesel now. And also, like, don’t judge people by how they look

i don’t even care about the gifs. reblogging for the comments and cause Vin is my boy.

I&#8217;ve often seen you mention your love for Cap. As a Batman collector myself, it&#8217;s amazing to see someone in the industry with a fanaticism that rivals many geeks&#8217;. Also super jealous you have the money for the hot toy figures! :-P

This is my personal collection of Beast merchandise. 

I wish I had the same for Scott! Wow! Is that a custom LEGO Beast big-figure?

X-Men #8 (1964) by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby

All-New X-Men #1 (2012) by Brian Michael Bendis and Stuart Immonen

Hank McCoy quits the X-Men - original version and ANXM version.  I love how Bendis was able to expand upon the dialog in this scene while still maintaining the original tone.  This was always one of my favorite Hank McCoy scenes from the original X-Men series, so I was overjoyed to learn that it was going to become the intersection point between past and present in All-New X-Men.  In fact, when I saw Stuart Immonen’s rendition of this scene in the early previews of the book, that’s when I knew that ANXM was going to be my new favorite comic book series.  Two years later, it’s still #1 for me.

I haven’t felt the desire to read the All New X-Men, but seeing these remade panels…fills me with a certain type of giddy joy. :-)

X-Men #47 (1968)
Humans in the Marvel Universe haven’t always been portrayed as instinctively hating mutants or the X-Men.  In fact some of them seem to be big fans here as Beast fights the Maha Yogi.

nmrosario
In some of the very first issues of X-Men, the team was looked at as pop icons like the Beetles. But that changed pretty quick from what I remember. Still, the image of teenage girls trying to pull Warren out of the sky so they could just touch his wings is burned into my brain. Glad someone is pointing this fact out. Not every human would be against the mutants.

Yeah, back in the 60s, I think Peter Parker was more distrusted by the average person than the X-Men were.  Sure, there was the angry mob in X-Men #8, but the way the X-Men reacted to that implied that it was a rare occurence.  Also, if you watch how that all played out, Hank and Bobby’s attempt to protect their secret identities from the crowd did just as much to exacerbate the situation as the fact that they were mutants.  
Of course, there was also Bolivar and Larry Trask, who created the first two generations of Sentinels; but those guys were depicted as slightly unhinged individuals who didn’t necessarily speak for the majority of humans and learned the error of their ways by the end of their respective story arcs.
Nowadays, the whole “mutants are different and humans hate anything that is different” thing has become so one-dimensional, heavyhanded and even preachy at times, that it actually makes the X-Men themselves less interesting characters, IMHO.  Because if the threats that they are facing don’t feel genuine, then it’s hard to become emotionally invested in their struggles.
I do give a lot of credit to Brian Michael Bendis for portraying the humans in his X-Men books in a much more balanced light.  He’s even had humans staging pro-mutant rallies, which is something that I think definitely would happen in the real world.  Hopefully, other writers will start to pick up on that idea.
Sorry I’m a bit long-winded here, but you can see that I have a lot to say on this subject. :)

I think it would definitely help if we started to see similar concepts in the media portrayals of the characters. A general swing of admiration turning to fear and the fear into understanding. Obviously with the way the world is today, you can still see prejudice and condemnation, so it IS a thing&#8230;but the portrayal could use some work.As I recall, the fear started when the population increased rapidly. After Scarlet Witch stripped the mutant populace of their powers we saw an upswing of pro-mutant support. But I haven&#8217;t kept up with the comics as much as I used to, alas.
