If ‘Lucy’ Was About Other Completely Wrong Misconceptions
Scarlett Johansson has a new movie coming out, called Lucy, about a woman who has a drug put inside of her that allows her to use more than 10% of her brain…JUST LIKE EVERY OTHER HUMAN BEING ON EARTH. Ya see, there’s a popular misconception that humans only use 10% of their brains. It’s wrong. That’s not, in any way, shape, or form, true. Go on Snopes. Please.
But it’s the entire conceit of the movie - it’s on the posters, it’s in the trailers, and Morgan Freeman’s character seems to exist solely to perpetuate this dumb misconception.
Hopefully this begins a series of films, all about Lucy totally buying into stupid beliefs that could be corrected by any legitimate scientist at any point.

calling it, whoever the new iron man is they won’t be straight. marvel’s tryna go for the trifecta.

Nothing makes me more pleased than Marvel making Marvel fanboys angry about genuinely good and interesting comic choices.

I’m just gonna leave this here

Okay so here is the deal. As far as the Thor being a woman thing goes. I don’t like it because from what I can tell, she will keep the name “Thor”. She isn’t Thor. She wields Thor’s hammer and his power but she is not Thor. Thor was HIS name. So that is an example of what I don’t like. Don’t take an already established character and change them like that. In the case of Captain America, It’s no different then what DC does with The Green Lantern. Because they aren’t turning Steve Rogers black, they are bringing in a completely new person who just happens to be black, I see nothing wrong with that. It’s cool! 
I know they have been known to change the sex, race and sexual orientation of already established characters though and that is NOT OKAY. Bring in a new character if you want diversity.
