Who's gonna see "Wonder Woman" this weekend?

I've started reading "Rogue One: A Star Wars Story" by Alexander Freed today and it's so well-written and translated it makes me cry.

One of the most important and unxpected things in the new “Logan” trailer is not the fact the kid Wolverine meets is young X-23, but the fact X-Men comics are now an in-universe thing, something that exists within that world.

That quick moment from the trailer is enormously important because it implies that at some point someone decided to create a story, a work of fiction starring one of the universe’s most hated and feared minority - and made them heroes. Showed them as heroes, showed them doing important stuff, living meaningful lives, and having - that’s what the scene the issue from the trailer shows - support of others. Not being alone, different and “bad”, not staying in the background so the “normal” characters could shine, but being the heroes, the protagonists of their own stories.

There are in-universe authors, in-universe publishers that made the comics Laura reads - and the fact she could get them means that at least at some point they were easily available for any reader that wanted to get them. And - as much as I understand Logan’s “And not like this” - I am not surprised that the young mutant kid became “an X-Men fan”. Why wouldn’t you embrace the thing that helps you survive?

So I watched the new movie set in the Potterverse and I gotta say - I'm SOOOO impressed. I really loved the new characters, creatures, overall mood and music. And it was so refreshing to see a story you don't know a lot about and you have no idea how it's gonna play out. I definitely recommend it to every fantasy fan out there. And I'd actually be happy to see a sequel - it would be a shame if we don't see those characters ever again.
