Re: Natalie Portman will be the new Thor in "Thor: Love and Thunder"

Unrelated, this is a fun interaction from the comic incarnation with Tony:

Re: Natalie Portman will be the new Thor in "Thor: Love and Thunder"

does female thor in comics have short hair? No -- Jane is bald at one point, but Thor maintains long, golden locks. Jane eventually did die from her cancer, but then was resurrected -- because comics. This article has a basic rundown -- I'm not sure whether the movie will take the cancer angle. htt...

Re: Natalie Portman will be the new Thor in "Thor: Love and Thunder"

It was in the comics a year or two ago, Jane Foster took up Thor's mantle and Mjolnir and become the new Thor for some time. Pity they didn't make it permanent. The aspect of the story that I loved was how Jane was undergoing chemotherapy at the time, so whenever she picked up the hammer to become ...

Re: Bored or annoyed? Both?

Could it have something to do with the accident? Sort of a PTSD malaise? If it's a general crankiness, it might be worth talking to someone about it, just to make sure everything's okay.

Re: Avengers Endgame

My guesses:

Captain America winds up back in the 40s with Peggy Carter

Natasha lives and fights on (given a possible solo film)

Tony dies. (Though I hope they keep him around for future cameos as a mentor.)

Thor -- heads off to lead the Asguardians in a new homeland.

Re: "Alita: Battle Angel" is amazing

In regard to the Alita/Captain Marvel face-off, Alita was originally scheduled to be released last July, and i think the initial poor reaction to her appearance had them kick it back to December so they could rework a few of the effects. Unfortunately, December was incredibly packed (Spider-verse, A...

If you really want to see two cities frothing at the mouth to destroy one another, hope for a Dallas-Philly NFC final. I know the odds are slim for many, many reasons. but whoa nelly, that could be awesome.

Re: It's FOOTBALL SEASON!!!! HALLELUJAH!!!!!

Foles is not the better QB, but he may be the better QB now for the Eagles. Much like Keenum is not a better QB than Cousins, but he was a better QB for the Vikings than Cousins now (and last year) A broken back is no light injury. Eagles have a tough decision IMO. I am very glad I do not have to m...

OKAY ...... WHAT are the odds that the TWO ( 2 ) TEAMS FOR THE SUPER BOWL will be LOS ANGELES Chargers VS LOS ANGELES Rams ..... I've been thinking that, too. It'd be cruel for the fates to line up like that, but more for the Chargers fans than the Rams. I mean, the Rams, at least, won a Super Bowl...

Re: It's FOOTBALL SEASON!!!! HALLELUJAH!!!!!

Just stating facts -- when you talk about quarterbacks who have their jerseys in the Hall of Fame, Nick Foles can be included in the discussion. Whether he is considered great or not can be a matter of opinion, but the fact remains that his jerseys are in there.

Re: It's FOOTBALL SEASON!!!! HALLELUJAH!!!!!

Actually, Foles is in the actual hall of fame a few times -- once for throwing the most touchdowns in a game (7), and then for a few other records. He may not be *enshrined*, but he is in there.

Re: It's FOOTBALL SEASON!!!! HALLELUJAH!!!!!

If Foles makes another deep push the Eagles have some things to think about. I don't know. Foles is an amazing guy, and the team has really rallied around him these past two years, but Carson was playing at an MVP level last year before he got hurt. It's not like we're talking about replacing Kurt ...

Bad ombres and bad puns...

So, a young woman I know had gorgeous, dark brown hair that's gotten a little shorter lately, but still is rather long. This morning I saw her, and now she's completely blonde, but it's a really bad blonde -- very straw like and with dark roots that are three inches or so long. It looks pretty trail...
