Random News Bites November 2013

Bleeding Cool and CBR both covered the upcoming Netflix Marvel series.  They will apparently be Daredevil, Luke Cage, Iron Fist, and Jessica Jones.  All of which will culminate into a Defenders miniseries.

CBR also continues on to talk about a certain upcoming appearance of a comic character in Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.  A character that shows just how many aspects from the comics are making it to the small and big screen with her handy appearance coming up.  Victoria Hand will be making her appearance in the episode "The Hub."

Bleeding Cool will also be holding a panel tonight on Gender in Comics.  Check that out at the link.

Bleeding Cool is also covering a story about how Netizens are starting to show up over in Iron Man.  Kudos to Marvel for acknowledging the source material too.  This isn't the first time they've done this or used fan suggestions, but it is always neat to see them treating such actions with respect and courtesy in doing so too.  Which makes the appreciative response all the more heart warming on both sides.

Then there's also this interview and article about Selena Gomez over at FLAUNT Magazine, which helps further suggest why she's the perfect actress for Laura Kinney/X-23.  It's an empowering piece which also dives into aspects that are reminiscent of X-23's origin tale with Dr. Sarah Kinney's reading The Art of War to Laura, as well as nods to darker dramedies potentially being in Ms. Gomez's future as she wants to further open up her filmography to all kinds of possibilities, even Scorsese films.  It dives into her wanting to play on the dark side, and helps elaborate the point with a photo shoot that's highly reminiscent of a young Angelina Jolie.  Goes to show that she will, if not considered already, be a name synonymous with being an iconic female bad ass.  All around it's quite an interesting read and insight into the woman behind the name and the legend/empire she's building.

Apparently the article and photo shoot also created a short film.


It's a very art house type short indie film.  Very much full of symbolism with a classic 90s vibe undertone.  It's an interesting piece in a growing filmography of diverse skillsets and talent.  Even breaking it down via film techniques, it speaks of a lot in such a short time frame of dramatic shots and imagery to help convey an interesting and universal message.
