Natalie Portman’s astrophysicist Dr. Jane Foster is not going to be in “Thor: Ragnarok,” despite falling for Chris Hemsworth’s god in “Thor” and sticking with him through “Thor: The Dark World.” Instead, Marvel wants to mix things up, so Thor and Jane are dunzo, and Thor will now spar with a fellow Asgardian warrior, Valkyrie, played by Tessa Thompson.Chris Hemsworth told Entertainment Weekly his character will enjoy being a single drifter and “solo cowboy” out in the universe. “Many of which are in the film so you will see that. But as far as I know, I’m done.””Thor: Ragnarok” is scheduled for release on November 3.Want more stuff like this? “As far as I know, I’m done. Then he’ll meet Valkyrie.Why not just bring back Jane? Valkyrie is trying to not embrace any sort of Asgardian heritage that she has. Like us on Facebook. Here’s Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige’s take on it, to EW:”We wanted Thor to encounter somebody that was near his equal and that his relationship with Jane may have evolved in unexpected ways in between ‘The Dark World’ and ‘Ragnarok’ and we wanted to pit him against a character who was much more his equal and in many ways his superior. Posted March 14, 2017 by Gina CarboneWas Jane too plain for Thor? There are only a couple of scenes on Earth in this movie; 80 to 90 percent takes place in the cosmos.”Also last year, Portman told the Wall Street Journal she was basically phased out of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. I don’t know if maybe one day they’ll ask for an ‘Avengers 7’ or whatever I have no idea. Thor thinks maybe that will create a bond between them and, on the contrary, she wants to forget it all entirely.”Last year, Feige told Empire there were “many reasons” for Portman’s Jane not returning for the third “Thor” movie.

The reality is — we joke about it, but it’s true — we don’t know what it’s like to go to the movies together, we don’t know what it’s like to spend time together in the real world. If you watched last night’s “After the Final Rose” special with the sound off (which might actually be for the best) you’d swear they were announcing their breakup instead of the start of their lives together.They looked so uncomfortable, even with each other, not just the live audience filled with Team Raven fans.

Right after their awkward “ATFR” interview with Chris Harrison, the couple addressed fan criticism to People. ❤️❤️❤️❤️. It was like Brad and Emily all over again, if not straight on to Jake and Vienna. (They didn’t get THAT tense — there was no hand-chop interrupting or tears.) Yeah, Nick and Vanessa are being “realistic” about their relationship, but does that mean they’re just counting the days until a breakup?Fans were left confused, wondering if they should be happy for the couple or sad that they’ve already been fighting and struggling — and are now going to spend more time apart as Nick goes straight to “Dancing With the Stars.”Cheers to the happy couple!! #TheBachelorFinale#ATFRpic.twitter.com/QMP65DDawe

When I’m around black people I’m made to feel ‘other’ because I’m dark-skinned. This is the frustrating thing, bro— in order to prove that I can play this role, I have to open up about the trauma that I’ve experienced as a black person. In America, I’m British.

He has done a lot so that we can do what we can do.”He continued, “Here’s the thing about that critique, though. Daniel grew up in a country where they’ve been interracial dating for a hundred years. “It was not a slam against them, but it was just a comment about how Hollywood works in an interesting sort of way sometimes.””I see black people as one man,” Kaluuya told GQ. “When I see people beaten on the streets of America, that hurts me. I’m dark-skinned, bro. Jackson’s recent critique that all the good roles for black actors seem to be going to Brits like David Oyelowo and not to Americans.In an interview with GQ, Kaluuya began by praising the “Pulp Fiction” star: “Big up Samuel L.

I’ve had to wrestle with that, with people going ‘You’re too black.’ Then I come to America and they say, ‘You’re not black enough.’ … I feel that.”Jordan Peele I have to show off my struggle so that people accept that I’m black…. A stupid ass conflict we don’t have time for.”Jackson has since backpedaled somewhat on his comments, telling THR at the premiere of “King Kong: Skull Island” that he was being critical of the Hollywood system, not of British actors. What would a brother from America have made of that role?” He added, “Some things are universal, but everything ain’t.”Jordan Peele, who wrote and directed “Get Out,” told the Guardian that he initially wanted to cast an American “because the movie was so much about representation of the African American experience.” He added, “Once I’d wrapped my head around how universal these themes were, it became easy for me to pick Daniel, because at the end of the day, he was the best person for the role.”Another Black brit, John Boyega, weighed in on Twitter last week to say: “Black brits vs African American. I resent that I have to prove that I’m black.”On March 6, Jackson told the radio station Hot 97 he would have preferred that an American actor had taken the role.

Our thoughts and support are with Steve and his family during this difficult time. Posted March 14, 2017 by Sharon KnolleStephen Hillenburg, creator of the beloved Nickelodeon animated series “SpongeBob SquarePants,” has revealed that he has the neurodegenerative disease ALS, Variety reports.The animator, who is 55, issued a statement that he will keep working on the series as long as he can.”I wanted people to hear directly from me that I have been diagnosed with ALS.,” the statement reads. It was originally called “Lou Gehrig’s disease,” after the baseball player who was first diagnosed with it in 1939.Hillenburg is a former marine biology teacher who drew on his love of the ocean to create the goodnatured yellow guy “who lives in a pineapple under the sea.” He directed 2004’s “The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie,” and co-wrote and produced the 2015 sequel.Last year Nickelodeon renewed “SpongeBob” for its 10 and 11th seasons.
