Batman V Superman Movie Rumors: Robin Will Be A Girl?

Jena Malone May Play the Carrie Kelley Robin from Frank Miller's The Dark Knight Returns(PCM) Will Batman’s Robin be a girl? Director Zach Snyder is on the record that he’s modeling a good bit of the Batman in Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice after the fan favorite 1986 Frank Miller Batman story The Dark Knight Returns, in which Batman begrudgingly takes on another Robin. It just so happens Robin is a girl.

Some would argue it’s a bad idea to go with a girl Robin. However if you’ve read the 1986 masterpiece by Frank Miller, you’d know it was an excellent decision.

If you don’t have time to read the story, be sure to rent (better yet own) the DC animated two parter released in 2013, The Dark Knight Returns. It stays faithful to the Frank Miller original and is considered by many to be one of the greatest Batman books to date.

Will it be the Carrie Kelley of Frank Miller’s The Dark Knight Returns and if so, is this the face of Robin?

If so, the question is will this Robin take on the role of Frank Miller’s Robin in The Dark Knight Returns?

Keep in mind, this is currently only credible to the level of rumor.  Remember in 2011, some sites were boasting that Justin Bieber had landed the role as Robin in the third installment of Chris Nolan’s Dark Knight Trilogy.

Justin Bieber wanted to be Robin.

Thankfully that was a rumor. Of course, Beiber does strike a good resemblance.

Regardless of if this rumor is true, should the Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice even have a Robin?  While the point of Batman’s career timeline does suit a Carrie Kelley Robin, would the story be overloaded with characters?

Warner Bros. is taking a different approach in catching up with Marvel by getting right to the Justice League, instead of many solo films then an ensemble like Avengers, but there was a reason for the solo films. It wasn’t simply origin, it was to allow us to learn the characters, their flaws and positive points that gave us cause to be invested in a team up.

DC may be moving too fast in an effort to catch up. Until we see it on the big screen all this advanced information does make for great speculation.

Newspaper Apologizes For Racist Obama Cartoon

Cartoon1

(PCM) Recently, The Boston Herald ran a cartoon that depicted President Obama in the White House bathroom brushing his teeth with a white man sitting the bathtub behind him asking “Have you tried the new watermelon flavored toothpaste?”.

The creator of the cartoon, Jerry Holbert claims that he created the cartoon to mock the recent secret service security breach that occurred at the White House and makes fun of the fact that media is reporting that the intruder got further onto the property than initially reported.

The Boston Herald has now issued a public apology for running the cartoon after they received a ton of backlash from the public deeming the cartoon to be incredibly racist. People specifically called out the use of “watermelon” as the toothpaste flavor chosen as it completely plays off the stereotype that African American people are particularly fans of that particular fruit flavor.

Holbert however stands by his claim that the cartoon was not meant to be racist and it was only meant to showcase light-hearted humor about the situation, not to offend. He says he chose watermelon as the flavor because that is the flavor of Colgate toothpaste that he happened to see in his kid’s bathroom the morning he created the sketch.

When the cartoon was set to be published in the syndicate newspapers, Holbert was asked to change “watermelon” to “raspberry” to which he complied even though his expressed disagreement. He does regret not alerting the Herald to the syndicates requested change.

For the record, Holbert also claims that he detests racist humor and would never purposefully contribute to it, however it does appear his cartoon suggested otherwise!

Donald Trump Makes Yet Another Twitter Gaffe

Donald-Trump1

(PCM) It seems that despite being pretty active on social media, Donald Trump is still trying to wrap his head around Twitter. He should probably hire some kind of social media coordinator so that instances like the one that happened to him today could be avoided in the future.

A user going by the handle @feckhead tweeted the following message to Trump:

“My parents who passed away always said you were big inspiration. Can you pls RT for their memory?”

Of course, Trump retweeted the message that also included a photo of people that he obviously thought were @feckhead’s parents.

However, it turned out that Trump got pranked and the photo that he retweeted was actually a snapshot of notorious murderers Fred and Rose West … opps!

It took Trump and his team almost an hour to realize the major Twitter mistake and the tweet has since been deleted from his account, but of course not before it has already begun circulating the net.

The person behind the Twitter prank was comedian Philip Bradbury and after the news began to circulate, his number of Twitter followers began to soar. Also, others started to get in on the fun with people posting images of everyone from Freddy Kruger to Darth Vadar requesting a retweet from Mr. Trump.

The West’s went on their murderous rampage from the years of 1973-1979. Fred West killed himself in his jail cell back in 1995 and Rose West is still currently serving a life sentence.

Joan Rivers Instagrams About iPhone 6 Update From The Grave

Joan-Rivers5

(PCM) Comedienne Joan Rivers tragically passed away five days prior to the news about the release date for the iPhone 6, however it seems her Instagram account has posted an update in regards to updating her 2010 phone with the new iPhone 6 from the great beyond.

In the post, Rivers described the new iPhone 6 as being a “great achievement in design” and a “great product”. The post also said that her only complaint about her phone from 2010 were that the apps were now designed for bigger screens and that the battery was “getting tired”.

It is quite easy to come to the conclusion that Rivers must have had a pre-arranged deal with Apple to plug the new iPhone and somehow someone forgot to remove the scheduled posting. It has since been taken down.

Chick-fil-A founder S. Truett Cathy Dies At Age 93

Truett-Cathy1

(PCM) The founder of the Chick-fil-A empire, S. Truett Cathy, has passed away quietly surrounded by his loved ones at the age of 93.

Cathy is credited with founding “The Original Chicken Sandwich”, perfecting his famous recipe in 1960. The simple, yet delicious recipe features a buttered bun, boneless chicken breast and dill pickle chips which he named “Chick-fil-A”.

Fast forward about fifty years and the Chick-fil-A empire has grown enormously. There are currently over 1,800 locations in 40 states across the U.S. and the company brings in approximately $5 billion in sales each years.

Cathy was a very religious man and his restaurants have never been opened on Sundays. This practice will remain in tact after his passing and the company will still remain privately run.

Our condolences go out to Cathy’s family and loved ones during this difficult time.
