Streep Tease

As news broke yesterday of yet another unknown white guy (Tom Holland who?) being tapped to helm another major franchise (does anyone even want another “Spider-Man” movie?) as directed by some equally unknown white guy (Jon Watts what?), I didn’t even bother repressing my yawn. Seriously that willmake six “Spider-Man” films featuring three different white guys as “Spider-Man” with three different white guy as director since 2002, I could not be more bored. I mean, we get it, he sticks to stuff. I would rather watch Meryl Streep take on and off her glasses one million times than see another “Spider-Man” story on the big screen. In fact, I think I will. Could you imagine how epid Meryl would be peering through, over and under her glasses in IMAX? That is all.

p.s. Please consider this a belated happy birthday for Meryl, who turned 66 on Monday.

Ms Snarker a million times is not enough to watch Meryl :) Thank you for this, truly enjoyed it.

I am so sick of Super Hero movies... Even gathering enthusiasm for Wonder Woman is hard now

Why is casting Spiderman as a white guy, treated like crimes against humanity? First off who gives a rat's @ss about Spiderman and isn't this complaint just more of the same with the overblown worn out and annoying PC'ness gone amuck.

I'm all for making life better for everyone, but geeze give it a rest. All this over the PC crap is actually hurting more then helping.
