WHY SO SERIOUS: WARNER BROS. REPORTEDLY ORDERS ‘NO JOKES’ IN NEW DC COMICS MOVIES
By Matt D. Wilson
Comics fans have become well acquainted with the notion that sometimes, creative people learn the wrong things from successes. It’s why certain comics have been dominated for going on 30 years by a “dark” and “mature” sensibility that often comes off as grim, self-serious and overcooked.
Well, get ready for that way of thinking to make its way to movie theaters very soon. According to a report at Hitfix, Warner Bros. has a strict rule for its upcoming DC Comics movies: “No jokes.”
What’s particularly surprising is that the rule — which itself is kind of a joke, when you think about it — is that it stems from a failure more than it does a success, at least, according to Hitfix writer Drew McWeeny’s thinking.

Another reason I don’t regret eschewing my love for DC as a company.

The Winter Soldier isn’t empty. His mind is all over the place.

Can I just point out here how much I appreciate The Winter Soldier’s augmentation? Like Steve Austin’s paradox, where his bionic arm is only as strong as the back and shoulder supporting it, but obviously Zola’s cybernetics extend while into the bracing elements, not to mention the pseudo super soldier process.

I don’t really understand how that is a question up for discussion on television news. I mean, even putting aside the gajillion ways that white people are privileged by, for instance, being able to think that whiteness is “normal,” studying world history from Eurocentric perspectives,  and etc etc:
- White people are less likely to be arrested for the same crime than black people, and black people serve longer (much longer!) sentences than white people.
- Marijuana use is similar among black and white populations in the U.S., but young African Americans are more than THREE TIMES more likely to be arrested for marijuana possession or use than white Americans. 
- Racial bias in hiring in the U.S. is well-documented and persistent.
- African American students are far more likely to be punished in schools, even though they are not much more likely to break school rules than their white peers.
- Even after accounting for reasons like education disparity, geographical distribution, and occupation, there is a persistent wage gap: White people make are paid more than African Americans due to racial discrimination. 
- White people in the U.S. on average have lower mortgage rates than African Americans.
White privilege is a fact of every facet of American life. I realize I’m mostly preaching to the choir here, but this is not a political issue or a subject for debate. It is well-documented and irrefutable.

Saving for later dissemination.

A lot of tigers in captivity are there for their own protection.  If they weren’t, they would be at an even higher risk of extinction

How do you figure that?

Tigers are the subject of both fear and greed. Very rarely do they become threats to a populace (usually a small village in the middle of no where) but that small chance is enough to inspire villagers to hunt and exterminate them as a threat. Tiger parts are also highly priced in certain branches of Eastern medicine. While there are laws prohibiting the sale of items derived from threatened species, the oversight is often not there and easy to bypass, thus propagating that illegal industry. Tigers that are in protective captivity have a much lower chance of being poached, or of threatening locals. Really this seems pretty straightforward if you think about humans are still systematically decimating natural habitats the world over, and in areas where tigers are native the population boom and economic growth is causing a whole other threat to the cat’s natural habit, thus dwindling their natural numbers and even causing more threat to human type interactions with the wild animals.
