Zendaya’s Casting as Mary Jane Watson Proves It’s Never Just About “Canon”

So this past weekend, I spent all my time collecting a bunch of Chet™ tears as well as the tears of his nerdy cousin Doug™. Why was I doing this?

‘Captain America: Civil War’ – Did It Live Up To the Hype?

Even though I really enjoyed Jurassic World, thanks in part to me just loving dinosaurs (I am currently training to become a certified T-rex Wrangler), I’m giving it side-eye for its technical sequel and reboot status.
