Female Pirate Replaces Jack Sparrow
Female Pirate Replaces Jack Sparrow in the Pirates of the Caribbean?
About a month ago we talked about the rumor that Disney was thinking about replacing Johnny Depp.
This would obviously be a risky move since every movie in the franchise has made around $1 Billion dollars each.
So a pirate named Redd has become an important figure on both the Disneyland and Disney World rides.
She is said to have taken over the controversial wench auction scene on the rides.
No passing of the torch where Jack Sparrow sails off into the sunset.
No subtle introduction in the movies where we get to meet Redd.
How do you think fans will accept Redd as the new protagonist in the franchise?
Once Upon A Deadpool Trailer Released
So the first trailer for Once Upon A Deadpool has been released.
For those unaware, Once Upon A Deadpool is a PG-13 edit of Deadpool 2.
It will be somewhat of a reenactment of the scenes from The Princess Bride, with Fred Savage and his grandpa in that movie, except Fred is a grown man, and Deadpool is in the grandpa's chair reading the story.
Fred is also not happy to be there, is tied up, and is throwing shade back at Deadpool better than anyone we've seen so far.
Once Upon A Deadpool hits theaters on December 12th.
$1 of every ticket will benefit Fudge Cancer, a charity whose name is edited because this is a PG-13 movie.

The Infinity War On Christmas
Avengers Infinity War hits Netflix on Christmas Day.
This will be the end of an era of sorts, as after this Disney will save it's premium content for its own streaming service.
Disney+ will launch late 2019 where eventually it will be all things Marvel, Star Wars, Pixar, etc.
No word on when Ant-man And The Wasp will be available on Netflix though.
Bill Maher Is A Petulant Child
Bill Maher acted like a petulant child when he said some disrespectful things about fans mourning the loss of Stan Lee recently.
Author Neil Gaiman has given the best response so far on his Twitter account with...
"Maher’s just trolling, and lots of people are rising to the troll. (Julie Burchill did it better 30 years ago with her “There aren’t any adult comics because adults don’t read comics” line. ) More people cared about Stan Lee’s death than care about Bill Maher alive."
The company that Stan Lee helped found POW! Entertainment has released a statement as well.
“Mr. Maher: Comic books, like all literature, are storytelling devices. When written well by great creators such as Stan Lee, they make us feel, make us think and teach us lessons that hopefully make us better human beings. One lesson Stan taught so many of us was tolerance and respect, and thanks to that message, we are grateful that we can say you have a right to your opinion that comics are childish and unsophisticated. Many said the same about Dickens, Steinbeck, Melville and even Shakespeare.”
This is why I have never been able to take Bill Maher that seriously, even on the occasion that I agree with him.
He's too often an immature troll.
