New ‘Ant-Man and the Wasp’ clip.

You know, of all the Marvel heroes out there: if I was a government, I’d be most scared of Ant-Man and the Wasp.

RIP, Charles Krauthammer.

I did not know him, exactly, but I knew a bit of him (which is why I’m posting this). Charles Krauthammer was an excellent advocate, a good dude generally, and had a will of solid titanium. I mean, seriously, it was like he exhaled determination. We are, all of us, much worse for his passing.

My condolences and prayers for his family and loved ones.

Disney makes Fox an offer it won’t refuse?

Maybe: “Walt Disney Co. raised its offer for 21st Century Fox Inc.’s entertainment assets to $71.3 billion, outbidding Comcast Corp. in a battle for one of the media industry’s biggest prizes.” Bloomberg also notes that “Disney also plans to take on about $13.8 billion of Fox’s net debt. That would lift the total transaction value above about $85 billion.”  Couple that with the suggestion that Disney may be clearing regulatory hurdles, and it looks like the Disney/Fox merger is a couple of steps closer.

Which leads to the important question: how long will it take for Marvel to create an ends credit scene for the next Avengers flick that looks like this?

Perfect storm for light posting.

Kids started summer vacation today, Secret World Legends started its anniversary event, and I’m off to the movies tonight with my wife. It’s been a kind of crazy day. Not a bad one, but a crazy one.

So, light posting.
