Disney’s ‘Marvel Rising: Secret Warriors’ Is Diverse AF And Will Even Include A Queer Latina

A new generation of Marvel superheroes are getting ready to shine.

“Marvel Rising: Secret Warrior” is gearing up for it’s 2018 debut with a four-episode digital series at the beginning of the year focusing on Spider-Gwen. A full-length feature film will be released later in the year, and it will star a diverse, young cast. Disney has not announced where the show will stream, but they are terminating their contract with Netflix in 2019 to focus on their own streaming platform.

“We wanted to show the world that these heroes are important to the Marvel universe,” says Sana Amanat, director of content and character development at Marvel, in the press video. “[Also] that there is a character for every kind of Marvel fan out there.”

Latino audiences will get to see themselves reflected thanks to the help of actors Tyler Posey from MTV’s “Teen Wolf” and Cierra Ramirez from Freeform’s “The Fosters.”

“He’s himself. He’s completely himself,” Posey says in the promo video. “He’s not trying to be anybody else. I really dig that.”

“Super excited to announce that I will be voicing the powerhouse America Chavez, aka Miss America (who you definitely don’t wanna run into in a dark alleyway ?),” Ramirez wrote in Instagram. “There is truly a hero in this for every Marvel fan ❤️. Proud to be apart of this!”

Clearly the fans are ready for this.

Who else is thrilled to see some badass superheroes of color take on evil?

Former ‘Teen Wolf’ Star Tyler Posey Admits That He Has Gone to ‘Sex Parties’ During the Pandemic

Former ‘Teen Wolf’ Star Tyler Posey Admits That He Has Gone to ‘Sex Parties’ During the Pandemic

Sounds like Tyler Posey isn’t taking social distancing too seriously! The actor recently revealed that he attended a “sex party” in recent weeks–smack dab in the middle of a global pandemic.

The “Teen Wolf” star talked about his sex party experience while being interviewed by Sirius XM’s “The Jason Ellis Show”.

The Mexican-American actor started the interview by being candid about his sobriety journey, saying he hadn’t been as social recently because he “went through a rough patch”. But, he has since changed his ways. “I’m sober now,” he revealed. “I’m 71 days sober.”

Posey then gave an example of how deeply uninterested he is in doing drugs now. “I was at a party the other night where they had a table of cocaine, just a table,” he said. “And they had Holy water, which was shots with Molly in it, and mushroom chocolate. And I didn’t give a s— at all.”

When Ellis asked him what kind of party this was, the “Jane the Virgin” actor admitted that it was a “sex party” where “people were hired to perform”.

Yes, Posey attended a sex party in the middle of a pandemic. Doesn’t exactly scream “safe”. Posey went on to explain that, although he did not have sex with any of the guests at the party this time, he had done so before.

“I have been to other sex parties, one other one, where it was like, uh….and I was like…” at this point, he broke into giggles before continuing. “I wasn’t part of the people who work there, but I was doing it.”

Tyler Posey has been making headlines recently for a myriad of reasons. In August, he came out on his Instagram page while condemning violence against trans women.

“I’ve been with trans women before. I’m confident with my sexuality,” he said in a wide-ranging series of Instagram stories. “I love everybody. I don’t give a s— what anyone thinks about me.”

Not only that, but Posey joined OnlyFans in September, where he has been further opening up about his sexuality and showing off his body for his fans.

While we’re all about being sex-positive and we’re happy that Posey is finding himself, any types of large gatherings right now are risky to public safety. And the likelihood that people were wearing masks at a sex party is…low. Let’s just hope they were safe in other ways!

Hollywood is Making a Latinx Reboot of “Father of the Bride”–Here Is Our Dream Cast

Hollywood is Making a Latinx Reboot of “Father of the Bride”–Here Is Our Dream Cast

The internet lit up on Thursday when the news was announced that the classic ’90s movie “Father of the Bride” is going to be remade with a Latinx cast.

According to Deadline, the story will focus on “a father coming to grips with his daughter’s upcoming wedding through the prism of multiple relationships within a big, sprawling Cuban-American family”.

The remake is being written by writer Matt Lopez who was inspired to take on this project based on “the many epic Cuban weddings he has attended, some of which he’s still recovering from.”

With that said, here are our choices for an all-Latinx cast of “Father of the Bride”. Check out our dream choices below!

1. George Banks – Andy Garcia

Although Andy Garcia is primarily known for his dramatic roles, we would love to see his take on the frazzled, overly-anxious father who is concerned about his daughter’s future, originated by Steve Martin. This Cuban-American actor has proved his chops in other comedies before, like “Book Club” and the “Mama Mia!” sequel.

2. Annie Banks – Cierra Ramirez

Famous for her role in “The Fosters” and “Good Trouble”, Cierra Ramirez would bring the perfect blend of sass and innocence to the role of the young bride in this story. There’s something about her that makes you want to see her with a happy ending.

3. Nina Banks – Luna Velez

Since the original actress (Diane Keaton) is such an icon, it would take an especially talented actress to fill the shoes of George’s long-suffering and patient wife, Nina. We would love to see the prolific and versatile Puerto Rican actress Luna Velez fill Keaton’s shoes.

4. Bryan MacKenzie – Anthony Ramos

Anthony Ramos is fresh-faced and optimistic enough to fill the role of well-meaning groom-to-be, Bryan MacKenzie. Ramos’ star-power is well-documented. Not only was he a part of Hamilton’s original Broadway cast, but he played the lead role in the upcoming movie-musical “In the Heights“.

5. Matty Banks – Malachi Barton

You might know Malachai Barton as the precocious child actor who has starred in both TV and movies. Recently, he even played Cousin Diego in the live-action version of “Dora The Explorer“. We think he’d be perfect as Annie’s troublemaking younger brother Matty Banks, originally played by Kieran Culkin.

6. Franck Eggelhoffer – Oscar Nunez

In “Father of the Bride” the character of wedding planner Franck Eggelhoffer arguably steals the movie with his comedic timing and hilarious one-liners. Fans of comedies like “The Office” and “The Proposal” know that Cuban-American comedian Oscar Nunez is one of the funniest people in the game. We would love Nunez make this whacky role his own.

7. Howard Weinstein – Faizon Love

This may seem like a controversial casting decision, but we would love to see Cuban-American comedian Faizon Love take on the role of Franck Eggelhoffer’s energetic assistant (a role originated by legendary actor B.D. Wong). Anyone who has seen Love in “Elf” or “Couple’s Retreat” knows that he has the comedic ability to tackle any role.
