“The only thing wrong with the first season…” ‘The Sandman’ Comic Book Creator Voices His Opinion on the TV Show’s Shortcoming

#wrong #season #Sandman #Comic #Book #Creator #Voices #Opinion #Shows #Shortcoming

August is the finest month for the fans of Neil Gaiman and comic book lovers, as they witnessed the masterpiece, The Sandman, getting translated from a comic book to a live-action adaptation. While the show is getting wonderful reviews, this one creator of the original comic book points out the only thing that’s missing from the show on-screen.

Colleen Doran, an American writer-artist and cartoonist, speaks about Netflix’s adaptation of The Sandman. She illustrated hundreds of comics, graphic novels, books, and magazines. And she has also worked with Neil Gaiman closely. The newly-released fantasy series The Sandman caught her eye, and she couldn’t stop herself from pointing out this ONLY flaw. Keep reading to find out what is that missing thing in the show.

The only thing missing in The Sandman adaptation

Colleen pours love for the adaptation and the characters, especially for Dream. She praises Tom Sturridge for his remarkable performance. She says that Tom, as Dream, has brought something on-screen that we rarely see enough. His restraint, subtlety, and a knife’s edge elegance won over her heart. No one other than Tom would have portrayed the character perfectly, as they would have missed the quiet grace, menace, and brittle fragility. “But with Sturridge as #Sandman he is like a whirlpool you fall into,” writes Colleen.

Tom commands attention with small moments. Even when his power is unleashed, he is grand and stately. She also appreciates The Corinthian portrayed by Boyd Holbrook and Mason Alexander Park (Desire). But this one flaw that she points out is a little surprising. She writes, “The only thing wrong with the first season of #Sandmanonneetflix was that it was too short.”

After Sacrificing Himself in Avengers Endgame, Is Robert Downey Jr Going to Return for a Cameo Scene Along Side Tom Holland?

#Sacrificing #Avengers #Endgame #Robert #Downey #Return #Cameo #Scene #Side #Tom #Holland

Every year, a Marvel project makes its way to screens. While each year the studio releases top-class films featuring different superheroes, 2019 was one of the biggest yet the most shocking year for the Marvel fandom. As the year marked the much-anticipated release of Avengers Endgame, it also brought with it a massive shocker for the fans. The movie left a hole in everyone’s heart as Marvel’s crown jewel superhero Robert Downey Jr’s Tony Stark, died in the movie. Or did he?

As we all know, the 2019 film saw a huge ensemble of actors all coming together and teaming up to fight Thanos. However, Robert Downey Jr., a.k.a. Iron Man, saved the entire universe by sacrificing his own life. As the fans are still recovering from this tragic event, it seems Robert Downey Jr. might be making his MCU comeback.

Robert Downey Jr might be returning to the MCU again

Iron Man (2008) marked the beginning of one of the biggest film franchises, a.k.a. Marvel Cinematic Universe. Robert Downey Jr‘s performance made Iron Man a sensation among the masses. However, 11 years later, Iron Man died in the Avengers Endgame, marking one of the most tragic events in the history of MCU. But the actor hopes to return to the franchise for a brief role.

As per Giant Freaking Robot, the Due Date actor might put on his Iron Man suit for a cameo scene in Spider-Man 4, featuring Tom Holland. The film will mark Robert Downey Jr’s eleventh appearance in a Marvel movie. Tony Stark and Spider-Man share one of the most exciting relationships. It was Tony Stark who first recruited a young Tom Holland’s Spider-Man in Captain America: Civil War. While there is no confirmation, seeing an Iron Man cameo, even though a brief one, would surely be exhilarating for fans.

Meanwhile, it is still intriguing how the studio will bring back Iron Man after his death scene. Sony will surely go all in to find a way to bring him into the Spider-Man franchise. One manner to bring in Stark would be starring him as a variant from an alternate universe. Only time will tell how the actor will return to the MCU.

“His behavior are appalling” – Australian Minister Hints at a Possible Ban on Kanye West From Entering Australia to Meet Wife Bianca Censori’s Family

Will Ye get his ticket to Australia? While usually caught in the midst of controversies, Kanye West has been busy with other things the last few weeks. The Donda singer surprised everyone, including his former wife, when the news of him getting married for the second time surfaced on the internet.

Bianca Censori, his new wife, is an Australian who works as the head architect at Yeezy. Her family still resides in the land down under. It is reported that Ye intends to visit them next by flying there. But considering his anti-Semitic and other attention-grabbing comments, people are calling for his visa to be refused.

Australian Ministers speak on the possibility of rejecting visa for Kanye West

West’s trip to Australia is beginning to seem uncertain. While the rapper is said to be visiting to meet his second wife’s family there, critics do not trust him. As per Reuters, Australia’s Education Minister Jason Clare stated how other people who made similar anti-Semitic comments as Ye have been denied a visa before. Clare revealed that West would go through the same questions that people before him went through if he wants to get a visa for the visit. There are ministers in the opposition as well, who share a similar view in this regard.

Peter Dutton who was the Minister of Immigration for the former Government said, “His anti-Semitic comments are disgraceful, his conduct [and] his behavior are appalling,” He added that while he would want to see Ye denied, it is upon the current Government to make that decision. Executive Council of Australia’s co-executive Peter Wertheim also argued that Ye is not fit for being granted a visa. Bad character and national interest are some of the reasons for the rejection. Although he will not be the first controversial person to be rejected.

Previously, Proud Boys’ founder Gavin McInnes was denied entry for his extreme right opinions. David Icke, former footballer, and a conspiracy theorist have also been denied a visa for the country before. Although it can be granted based on several conditions and tests. A decision over Ye’s visit is yet to be made, and he has remained silent so far.
