↳ captain america: the winter soldier - nick fury is attacked
Look at this. JUST LOOK AT HOW FUCKING BADASS THIS IS.
But you still truly fear for him, because this shit happens right in the middle of a city in broad daylight, where they’re gonna riddle him with bullets and tear him into pieces. And how most people would then regard him simply as a common criminal rightfully pursued by the police, who deserved the very public execution he’s about to get.
There’s a lot to be said about how they chose the “police” machinery to take down Fury, while Steve and company was pursued by nondescript Hydra thugs and the presumably private STRIKE team. They would have absolutely no problem to murder Fury then and there, but with Steve they know they simply cannot do it when there are witnesses around.
Not here, they say for Steve Rogers. But right here and right now for Nick Fury.
And also? Before the attack, Fury sees the white cops eyeballing him in his nice SUV and says “you wanna see my lease?” This man has decades of experience in intelligence operations. He’s been lead developer on an international security-based predictive analysis program. He’s an operations mastermind.
AND NICK FURY DOESN’T SEE THIS ATTACK COMING BECAUSE THE WARNING SIGNS LOOK EXACTLY LIKE THE AVERAGE INSTITUTIONAL RACISM HE SEES ON A REGULAR BASIS.
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ what black side of the avengers/marvel fandom been saying but they dont pic up on it
This country is such a fucking joke. Did you know that if we were to divide the income in this country fairly it would be about 300,000 per person. That’s annually. You could give each person in this country 100,000 and still have enough to invest in infrastructure and research. Instead we have people who don’t have water, don’t have their basic human rights fulfilled, because they don’t have enough to pay a bill.Capitalism is inhumane.
Dudes I love the idea of a superhero show shot like parks and rec or the office (a la that one tumblr post specific to marvel) but I’m like we gotta get some original superheroes otherwise there’s gonna be some issues with copy rights. So I give you what I have so far of the cast:
Retta would play an opera singer with black canary type powers
Crews would play an artist, no one is quite sure what his powers are. Everyone thinks its super strength but hes just naturally a really strong dude. He actually can shape shift into any animal, with a preference for the small, cute and cuddly (the animal retains the speaking voice of terry crews)
Mindy’s character would work a regular office job, and her powers would be time manipulation. Her story line would focus on the crush she has on her waitress who works at the diner she gets breakfast from every day. She gets nervous and babbles when she talks to the waitress so she ends up using her powers a lot to do over their conversations.
Then there’s the whole, capable woman trains man because it turns out he is the chosen one not her even though she is more equipped to do so trope. I’ve decided at the last moment before touching the artifact that the chosen one needs to touch to get their super powers the man say wait no never mind you do the thing you are clearly better at it than me. These characters will be played by
The artifact will give maslany captain marvel type powers (flying, shooting light beams from hands etc). I want her to be a veteran so she can compare whatever high jinks are happening in the show (like I don’t know some body magicked the toaster and now it is sentient) to her experiences and look into the camera like “I have literally been to war and this shit right here is even more messed up than that was.” She is also a veterinarian because I want her to tell people that she is a vet vet.
And naturally her counterpart would be:
(why are all the google images of pratt hunky dude poses with no smiles) So pratt would play like a cook or something, not quite andy dwyer but still a goofy, good dude. He’s gonna get kidnapped and has to be rescued by Tatiana all the time as a running joke. One day he gets kidnapped by some corny but not super evil villain and they’re sitting around like…where is she. Then it cuts away to whatever the A plot of that episode is. The next cut back to them is pratt sitting on the couch next to the villain (i’m imagining like full on magneto style costume with a helmet and everything) playing mario kart. Pratt’s like “blue shell motherfucker.” The next time the show cuts to them they are arguing about the ethics of using blue shell. The next cut is to the villain telling Pratt like, “listen man, it’s getting late. I don’t think she’s coming. I’ve got this presentation to give at work tomorrow. I’m just gonna let you go.” And it cuts to Pratt walking in to his and Tatiana’s apartment and she’s just sitting there eating cold chinese food like…sup.
would play some sort of wise janitor/handiman/anything that like spews wisdom and basically will come in to help further the plot, but everyone is alone when they talk to him so no one is sure if he is real and no one wants to ask.
has tech disruption powers. Hes kind of a dramatic over the top character (much like schmidt from new girl). His powers are useful when fighting bad guys with high tech weaponry but 99% of the time they are just annoying and he really just wants to watch netflix without it buffering for 2 hours.
Would bank roll the whole operation. His character invented an app that sold for like a billion dollars and he used that money to fund more inventions which means he’s rich as shit. His character is basically just tyler posey with a jet pack.
So that’s what I’ve got so far. If any of you have any ideas feel free to add them to this post or message me. I still need a team name. ALSO WAY MORE LADIES.
I came up with more stuff
Under the cut
yet even more stuff
Can’t stop won’t stop
Did you know at the set of Capitan America 2. Chris Evans couldn’t tell apart Scarlett Johanson’s stunt doubles from her so he would start talking to them as in they were Scarlett and the stunt doubles played the game ” How long would it take Chris to figure out im not Scarlett” . Apparently the record was 10 minutes.
This halloween please say no to these costumes please just say no they are fucking insulting and Dia de los Muertos is NOT HALLOWEEN I REPEAT NOT HALLOWEEN THIS IS NOT A COSTUME PLEASE STOP TREATING IT LIKE ONE
TO ALL THE PEOPLE GETTING FUCKED OFF AT MY POST. THIS IS EXACTLY WHY I MADE IT. FOR YOUR PINCHE GUERO PENDEJX ASSES. “WE DO IT OUT OF RESPECT,” MY ASS.
this is capitalism ripping through my memories i hold so sacred. Memories of walking through the streets of Chapala after school with my grandmother, and the smell of plants for the preparation of the big event. Memories of memories of memories
This is capitalism and white supremacy destroying, erasing and making new… something that has connected me with my elderes and ancestors,
This is whiteness telling me my body, our gente is unwanted, dehumanized and conditioned to death but at the same time extracting a part of my identity and wearing it as a mask.
This is a mask made of our dead and torn bodies… this is literally a mask made out of ripped bloody flesh. The flesh of migrants who die every year trying to cross.. the flesh of people who become criminalized and confined behind bars. The bloody flesh of torn bodies from years of exploitation in sweat shops, fruit and vegetable fields, dish washers.. domestic workers…
this is our flesh ripped out cleaned, pampered and styled to fit a white face.
