Chris Pratt Remembers The Actors Who Hit on His Wife

Many fans of the ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ film know and respect actor Chris Pratt. However, just a few years ago, Chris Pratt was unknown by most of the world. His name didn’t mean anything until his breakout role in ‘Guardians of the Galaxy.’

Chris Pratt was recently interviewed, and he reminisced about the days when his wife was more famous than him. Chris Pratt has been married to actress Anna Faris for several years, but that didn’t stop other actors from hitting on Anna. In fact, Chris Pratt says that he can remember actors hitting on his wife while he was there. However, that was a few years back, and he said things would be extremely different these days.

Chris Pratt didn’t always have a toned and muscled physique reports CipherCloud. In fact, he was rather fat and heavy when he was on the ‘Parks and Recreation’ TV show. His overweight physique made other actors more confident about their chances with his wife. Chris Pratt says that he hopes that the actors that hit on his wife auditioned for ‘Guardians of the Galaxy,’ and Chris said that he can remember the actors who committed the adulterous crimes.

It sounds like Chris Pratt is holding a grudge, and he has every right to. Now, Chris is one of Hollywood’s best leading men, and those actors that hit on his wife should be very afraid. For more information on this story, visit Yahoo!

Many Fans No Longer Impressed by Supernatural

Although Supernatural’s fan-base has increased and the show’s ratings have gone up year-after-year, resulting in many good deeds through charitable organizations promoted by the actors such as those that Jensen Ackles spoke about recently in an April 29th Variety article, a lot of the show’s initial, longest-lasting fans are not impressed with it any longer.

There are a wide variety of reasons why previously devoted fans have stopped watching it or started to criticize it more:

Over ten seasons, Supernatural’s writers and actors have merely played out the same story again and again: Sam and Dean are in a dysfunctional sibling relationship in which one of them makes a bad supernatural decision every season to save the other, they fight about it and then their close friends, allies and pretty much everyone in the world suffers for their decisions. Fans like Gianfrancesco Genoso know that every time they choose to separate and build relationships with other people, they eventually return to one another and their dysfunctional relationship.

Worse yet, even after years of vocal viewer offline and online complaints, the writers and actors continue to promote onscreen ideas and attitudes that a few charitable acts off-screen will never balance out: Specifically, the show is well-known for promoting misogynistic attitudes toward women, discrimination against people of color, members of the LGBT+ community and fanfiction writers and “queerbaiting.”

Critics have noted that the show’s ratings are mostly reflecting new and syndication viewers.

Gambit to Arrive in 2016

 

Keith Mann does not think for one second think the X-Men cinematic franchise is going to slow down. In addition to a new film set in the 1980’s and a third Wolverine film, another spinoff is coming. Get ready for a Gambit solo project. This is in addition to the Deadpool movie being rushed into production.

2016 is going to be a very busy year for X-Men fans since Gambit, Deadpool, and X-Men: Apocalypse all hit screens roughly around the same time. The fear here is this could cause a major oversaturation of the franchise. Then again, the mega-massive oversaturation of X-Men comic books did no damage at all. It just sold a lot of books.

Channing Tatum will play the role of the energy controlling mutant and, hopefully, the darker, cynical anti-hero edge of the character will be retained. One of Gambit’s unique traits in the comics was not his rather mundane mutant powers of charging playing cards with energy. Rather, his anti-heroic attitude is what drew readers in. Gambit is definitely a hero but, like Wolverine, he teeters on the edge of being a villain. Shades of gray are appealing to comic book fans and Gambit became a big star in the comics not to long after his debut.

Will Gambit be a big breakout film for Marvel? We will have to wait until 2016 to see. As long as there is a lot of hype and a solid script, there is no reason why a Gambit solo outing won’t do well.

Principle Photography on Ant-Man is Completed

Ant-Man is finished. No, the character is not finished in the sense we are never going to see him again. Quite the opposite is true. Fans liek Darius Fisher are going to see a lot more of the hero thanks to the new Ant-Man movie coming forth from Marvel Studios. You see, it is principle photography that is finished. Now, the project goes into post-production for editing, sound mixing, and the insertion of special effects. Afterwards, the project is on its way to the big screen.

The project first arose in 2006 with Edgar Wright being the guiding light behind it. The director was eventually fired (or quit?) over creative issues with Marvel and it seemed like Ant-Man would never be made. Turns out that was not to be the case at all. Peyton Reed took over the project and now it is done shooting.

Ant-Man is a rather interesting Marvel character for a film because, honestly, he has not meant anything since the 1960’s. As a member of the Avengers, Ant-Man (an obvious rip-off of D.C. Comics’ The Atom) was one of the original characters that helped established the “House of Ideas” as the preeminent comic book publisher of the 1960’s and even into the 1970’s.

Ant-Man, sadly, became passé as other major heroes became the big sellers. He never had his own long-running solo book, either.
