Stan Lee Is Now Involved In A Sexual Harassment Lawsuit

Page Six– Comic book legend Stan Lee has been accused of groping and harassing the nurses who care for him at his home in Los Angeles.
According to the Daily Mail, the nursing company is currently in a legal dispute with the 95-year-old Marvel creator after nurses claimed he asked for oral sex in the shower and to be “pleasured” in his bedroom.
“He doesn’t seem to care what people think of him, he’s lost his filter,” a source told the tabloid. “There has been a stream of young nurses coming to his house in West Hollywood and he has been sexually harassing them. He finds it funny.”
The source added, “He’s also very handsy and has groped some of the women, it’s unacceptable behavior, especially from an icon like Stan.”
A rep for the nursing home confirmed several nurses have complained and the owner of the company has spoken to Lee directly, but the company stopped working for him at the end of 2016.
“Mr. Lee categorically denies these false and despicable allegations and he fully intends to fight to protect his stellar good name and impeccable character,” his lawyer said in a statement to the site. “We are not aware of anyone filing a civil action, or reporting these issues to the police, which for any genuine claim would be the more appropriate way for it to be handled. Instead, Mr. Lee has received demands to pay money and threats that if he does not do so, the accuser will go to the media. Mr. Lee will not be extorted or blackmailed, and will pay no money to anyone because he has done absolutely nothing wrong.”
Meanwhile, a rep for the new nursing company working for Lee said he has been “polite, kind and respectful” to their staff.
Lee’s wife of 69 years, Joan, passed away in July at 93 years old.
A rep for Lee did not immediately return our request for comment.

Listen I’m not gonna try to pretend the stereotype of old creepy men who try to get nurses to jack them off during sponge baths isn’t a real thing. Stan Lee and that age group grew up in a time where that shit was common place. The reason it kills me a little deep inside is because I know how much he loved his wife. I mean read this shit and try to not drum up thoughts of a perfect romance story.

“When I was young, there was one girl I drew; one body and face and hair. It was my idea of what a girl should be. The perfect woman. And when I got out of the Army, somebody, a cousin of mine, knew a model, a hat model at a place called Laden Hats. He said, ‘Stan, there’s this really pretty girl named Betty. I think you’d like her. She might like you. Why don’t you go over and ask her to lunch.’ Blah, blah, blah.

“So I went up to this place. Betty didn’t answer the door. But Joan answered, and she was the head model. I took one look at her — and she was the girl I had been drawing all my life. And then I heard the English accent. And I’m a nut for English accents! She said, ‘May I help you?’ And I took a look at her, and I think I said something crazy like, ‘I love you.’ I don’t remember exactly. But anyway, I took her to lunch. I never met Betty, the other girl. I think I proposed to [Joan] at lunch.”

his wife was his muse and the guy didn’t even know it till he accidentally ran into her! I tear up thinking about running into a the girl you’d been dreaming about all your life but then i tear up more thinking that image is tarnished by the idea of Stan Lee asking nurses to jerk him off while he touches up on The Amazing Spider-man Issue #121. What ever happens happens, hope he stops sexually harassing nurses. Not like I’m a comic book artist so I’m not personally offended but I damn sure do love every single marvel movie and this world he helped create. Which brings me to my last point.

You gotta kill Stan Lee’s cameo in Infinity Wars right? Like not kill it as in “yea we crushed it, great scene!” I mean I want to see Stan Lee die in it. You can’t talk about how Thanos is the big bad in a movie thats a culmination of 10 years and not stick a shocking dagger in every person in the audience. I mean people already assume Thanos is gonna wipe out half the universe, Key characters potentially dying. Why not really make Thanos one of the most iconic villains by at least on screen killing one of the most iconic cameos/character of all time. There doesn’t need to be any continuity issues, the guy showed up in space in GotG2. Not like its some crazy plot hole if he shows up in movies after. But the fact is this is suppose to be one of the craziest Marvel movie to date, he’s 95 years old. At that age you never know whats gonna happen. Do we want his last memory to be a 95 year old sexual harassing old man who yelled at Peter Parker in Spider-man Homecoming 2? No. We want to have our heart strings ripped out when he gets vaporized by Thanos and the Infinity Gauntlet.

Im Rattling My Brain Trying To Figure Out How To Sell A 2017 Vintage James “Deebo” Harrison Cabernet Sauvignon

This is a full body red wine of the Cabernet variety, 2017 vintage, full of fruity and savory flavors from the California wine region. Under cut by the slight sweetness from the vanilla pre workout protein, yet the strong aromas of cocoa notes and blackberry fill your pallet. Fine structure between the balance of acidity and tannins pair perfectly with a steak on a weekend evening before you get your lift on. Perfect to let breathe in between sets.

I mean what a salesman by me. Yea I copied that out of a google search for “cabernet” and cut it up a bit, but If i tried to push wine at The Fresh Market I’m sure I could fool at least one person with that sales pitch. But honestly how do you sell this wine? Something tells me the Deebo fan base demographic isn’t the same crowd that decorks a red wine, pour through a decanter, and pairs their red wine with a perfectly cooked sous vide steak. By all accounts Harrison can bench press a chevy, but he’s aging. His NFL contract probably will come to an end soon after he wins a Superbowl with The Patriots and he needs 350k a year to maintain his concrete body so he has to make some sort of income after the fact. Maybe somehow a 6 foot 275lb Superbowl wining linebacker can tap into the very young, very burgeoning oversized grey hoodie sweatshirt meathead weightlifting red wine drinking demographic who enjoys a full body red at night. It’s about as wild of a sales pitch as Fight Milk.

Karl Anthony Towns Cucked My Brain With These Stranger Things Nikes

KAT, you son of a bitch. I don’t want to come off as a hater and i never wanted to write this blog because i didn’t want people to steal my ideas, but as cool as Karl-Anthony Towns shoes are, they’re just shoes that get air brushed on.

All very dope. Hats off to Adam Silver for being the smartest commissioner for letting athletes wear custom kicks. Happy Athletes, massive TV deals, athletes who get millions. But as much as those shoes are dope to look at, what I want is something special which is why im forced with a gun to my head to write this blog. Because if some mother fucker copies my idea I mean rip those shoes right off their feet so fast those ankles wont know what hit em.

So lets start off with the base, gotta be Jordan 11’s. Very classic dope Jordan. Now this is where i need like Shoe Surgeon or someone to really do their thing. The Jumpman Jordan is gonna be removed, instead give me a silhouette of Eleven with the bloody nose. That alone is dope. The 23 in the back, 11, the front nylon that say Jumpman Jordan, red stitching Stranger Things. The white part of the sole, switch is out black with the speckled white/grey so it looks like the upside down. The underside, a demogorgon ready to eat someones face off. So dope. We’re not here just painting shit on shoes. We’re creating a masterpiece here. But now that it’s out there I gotta be vigilant as shit and now i gotta set aside like 5 grand to actually get these shoes made. Its my ideas. I had it first. Anyone after this point that makes a Stranger Things shoes is just plain biting KAT and my style.

Getting Your Favorite Steelers Hat Back Is Not Worth Breaking Your Spine For

DESTIN, Fla. (AP) — A Florida man now living in Bali is fighting for his life after he fell from a roof while chasing a monkey that had stolen his favorite Pittsburgh Steelers cap.
The Northwest Florida Daily News reported that Jeff “Swede” Swedenhjelm fell 33 feet (10 meters) on Monday.
Villagers took him to a local hospital, where he was diagnosed with severe damage to his spinal cord. He currently is paralyzed from the chest down.
Lyric Swedenhjelm, who lives in Destin, said the family is trying to get her father to a country with a spinal specialist. She said Swedenhjelm is in a medically induced coma and is on a ventilator.
The family has started a fundraising page on GoFundMe, which has already raised more than $36,000.

And here they say Florida people aren’t true fans of their teams. Guess what, all the haters out there, we are. It just so happens though that they’re not fan of any teams in Florida. I mean here in South Florida you’re either a Dolphins, Giants, Patriots, or Steelers fan. That’s just facts and in this case for this young man with paralyzed body, he’s the latter. Was it a smart play to go running and jumping from roof top to roof top like you’re Jason Bourne to catch a monkey with your Steelers hat? No. But like i said, people from Florida are in fact dedicated fans of their team. I mean something tells me Jeff can’t just walk into his local Lids in Bali, Indonesia and get the same exact Steelers hat.

Oh yea, p.s- hope you recover man. Also hope you get your hat back.

 

Wonder Woman Has Warner Brothers By The Balls By Demanding Them Sever Ties With Brett Ratner

Page Six- “Wonder Woman” star Gal Gadot is continuing to battle accused Hollywood sexual harasser Brett Ratner by refusing to sign for a super­hero sequel unless the movie-maker is completely killed from the franchise.
A Hollywood source tells Page Six that Gadot — who last month backed out of a dinner honoring Ratner, where she was due to present him with an award — is taking a strong stance on sexual harassment in Hollywood and doesn’t want her hit “Wonder Woman” franchise to benefit a man accused of sexual misconduct.
Ratner’s production company RatPac-Dune Entertainment helped produce “Wonder Woman” as part of its co-financing deal with Warner Bros. The movie has grossed more than $400 million internationally, and Ratner’s company will take a healthy share of the profits. A Warner Bros. insider explained, “Brett made a lot of money from the success of ‘Wonder Woman,’ thanks to his company having helped finance the first movie. Now Gadot is saying she won’t sign for the sequel unless Warner Bros. buys Brett out [of his financing deal] and gets rid of him.”
The source added of Israeli-born Gadot, “She’s tough and stands by her principles. She also knows the best way to hit people like Brett Ratner is in the wallet. She also knows that Warner Bros. has to side with her on this issue as it develops. They can’t have a movie rooted in women’s empowerment being part-financed by a man ­accused of sexual misconduct against women.”
This past week, Warner Bros. announced it was severing ties with Ratner amid multiple sexual-harassment allegations leveled against him by actresses including Olivia Munn and Natasha Henstridge. Ratner has vehemently denied the allegations through his attorney, Marty Singer.
Earlier this month, Gadot posted on Instagram: “Bullying and sexual harassment is unacceptable! I stand by all the courageous women confronting their fears and speaking out. Together we stand.
We are all united in this time of change.”
Reps for Gadot and Ratner did not comment.
A rep for Warner Bros said only, “False.”

Its pretty cut and dry here the answer for Warner Brothers…..

Not only is Wonder Woman great at fighting nazis but she’s also good for raking in close to 1 billion dollars off of 1 movie alone. With her appearance in BvS and Justice League opening this week, She’s apart of a 3.1 billion dollar franchise and is only gonna bring in more money. Brett Ratner is only a cash cow at this point. I mean EPs just finance movies really but Gadot’s pretty much proven shes worth it since her movie came out with resounding success. I mean what are you gonna pick a guy with a checkbook writing 100 million or Wonder Woman who alone brings in 8 times as much? Its Hollywood in a nutshell, it all comes down to the money. Everyone who’s seen season 4 of Entourage knew Harvey Weinstein was a cocksucker and from there you can pretty much put together that he probably used his power and leverage in Hollywood to get some pussy. That season came out 10 years ago. Now with growing social media influencing everyone and their mother, its starting to hurt an already injured film industry. Now a second component to this is the name.

Do people think Brett Ratner is a house hold name? I was talking to my buddies about this, one who’s a film student and one who’s not and he said he didnt know who Brett Ratner was. Should people know who Brett Ratner is? Don’t get me wrong, I love all the Rush Hours and knew he did one of the X-men movies but besides that we’re not talking about the next Scorsese or anything. And his movies aren’t preposterously bad enough to be known like Michael Bay. I mean that in itself has to be a reason they just close the doors on the guy right? Name power and money is king in Hollywood and right now both of those go to Gadot.

How Salty is Luc Besson That Marvel Movies Rake In Billions While His Movie Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets Was a Box Office Flop And A Bad Movie

NYDN- Steve Rogers is apparently catching some flak for his role as steward of America.

French director Luc Besson, whose latest film “Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets” hit theaters last month, spoke with a Brazilian journalist about an increasingly familiar term in the film industry: superhero fatigue.

Besson lambasted Hollywood’s portrayal of Captain America, saying that the superhero genre always attempts to bolster America’s standing on the world stage.

Besson went as far as to call Captain America “propaganda.”

“I’m totally tired of it, totally. I mean, it was great 10 years ago when we saw the first ‘Spider-Man,’ ‘Iron Man.’ Now it’s like, number five, six, seven,” Besson said. “The superhero is working with another superhero, but it’s not the same family. I’m lost.”

“What bothers me most, is that it’s always here to show the supremacy of America, and how they are great. I mean, which country in the world would have the guts to call a film, ‘Captain Brazil,’ or ‘Captain France?’ I mean, no one. We would be so ashamed and say, ‘No, no, c’mon, we can’t do that.’ They can . They can call it ‘Captain America’ and everybody thinks it’s normal.”

“I’m not here for propaganda, I’m here to tell a story,” Besson continued. “And ‘Valerian’ is another proposal….different, where, you really travel. You meet aliens, a lot. And there are real themes. I mean, Valerian and Laureline are not superheroes, they’re not even heroes. They’re people like you and me. They’re cops, they do their job. But sometimes, they can be heroic. That’s what I love, because I can relate to that. I can’t relate to a superhero, I don’t have superpowers.”

“Valerian,” which holds a 50% on Rotten Tomatoes, underperformed at the box office, earning $90 million off a budget around $180 million. Meanwhile, in its third week, superhero film “Spiderman: Homecoming” earned over $5 million more at the box office than Besson’s film.

Honestly how much is Luc Besson crying that his precious Valerian movie stunk in theaters nationwide while every Marvel movie seems to be a smash hit and makes millions in box office and toy sales around the globe. Seriously way to pick a fight with the largest fucking production studio on the planet. Don’t get me wrong, I can understand someone saying its tired. We’ve hit around close to 41 comic super hero movies since the 2000s and half of which have come in under 10 years and we get about 3 or 4 yearly now. I get it can be tired, but guess what? if it’s good and still makes money, they’re still gonna make them, and we’ll still be entertained. It’s only recently they started cooking up a new method too by making them genre films to reinvent comic book super heros so god knows when kids who share the comic book super hero movie get sick of Spider Man. Sure, the second I hear a 9 year old walk out of Spiderman Homecoming 5 saying “God, this spiderman is so derivitive of the earlier works of previous Spiderman blah blah blah” then I’ll credit Luc Besson for being in on it early but remember these are movies for kids and are entertaining enough for Adults to watch. That’s a sweat money market that I’m okay with.

But besides all of that, Besson’s other takes are just as trash has Valerian. Like, why you gotta diss Captain America like that. I’m sorry a comic book character created in the 40’s in the middle of World War II was created as a symbol of patriotism in a country that entered the war to save allied countries from being over run by a Fascist dictator. Guess what, thats what America did, we along with our allied pals came in and stomped Hitler’s dick. That’s why Captain America is who he is. Because he is the living embodiment of what is right in America and he’s not afraid to call Hitler a fuck face with his super jacked muscles. Listen some guy in Brazil wants to create a comic book character called Captain Brazil go for it. Want to make a Captain France, be my guest. Most likely he would surrender in war so I don’t think that would be the greatest Comic book character but sure go ahead and make one. But blaming Steve Rodgers, a comic book character, for being a character created in the middle of the Second World War as a archetype of the perfect American soldier who selflessly volunteered to enter the war despite being physically capable to do much but wants to because he doesn’t like bullies and because standing up to bad guys was the right thing to do, and was subsequently turned into a billion dollar movie character, is the definition of salty.

Don’t even get me started on him trying to defend Valerian. Is there room for a good, entertaining movie to be in there? Sure. I mean you have all these space things going on, theres detective work, aliens, bad guy twist, sure there could be a good movie there but between Dane Dehaan not being able to lead in a big time studio movies, his actually shitty character, and the useless shit going on in the movie, Valerian stunk. Guy’s making it out to seem like theres some great space voyage movie where you’ll leave with an encyclopedia of alien knowledge after watching this movie. Here’s all it is **Spoilers** aliens got wiped out, Dane Dehaan really wants to fuck Laureline, and then the movie derails into a teen love movie with Dehaan learning about love from a shape shifting Rihanna, and then they figure out who blew up the planet along time ago. You don’t really travel. It’s disguised as travel because they built unrealistic environments that are some how explained because of some mcguffen alien space station. You don’t really see aliens as more than faces on screens, besides the main aliens that are hardly on screen besides the beginning or the end and the shape shifting Rihanna. and I guess you learn a theme of Love, one of the most played out themes in the world. Trash movie. And to say that these are relatable characters. Such a weird concept in movies. Sure making relatable characters are fun. But unless there’s a movie about a Chinese blogger, how the fuck is that suppose to relate to me? Oh Alien space cop, super relatable characters. Super sophisticated super British spy in James Bond, Not relatable. A badass professor of archeology who searches for hidden relics, not relatable. Any person in any action movie ever because they can run more than a mile to save their life, not relatable.  And on the other end of the spectrum, its a fucking movie, guy. If i wanted to see relatable characters that did boring as shit instead of saving the world from Thanos and what ever imminent threat is lurking in the corner, then Id just stay home and watch Animal Planet. I don’t want relatable characters, I want fucking awesome characters doing awesome things. And trust me, Luc, we know you don’t have super powers.

Sidenote- I feel like they don’t even call him specifically “Captain America” much in the movies. Steve, Rodgers, Steve Rodgers, Captain Rodgers, Cap etc. Shits just the title man. And then even at that point, people just refer to the sequels as Civil War or Winter Soldier. Much easier to say that Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets.
