OK Batman fans, prepare yourselves: Jena Malone may be playing Robin in the upcomingBatman V Superman: Dawn of Justice.
Jena Malone, known best for her role as Johanna Mason in The Hunger Games, could be the first female Robin to hit the silver screen. Malone has been seen on the WB set sporting a new red hairdo, which may allude to a Carrie Kelley cameo.
She also posted an image of her fiery locks on her Instagram page.
Tom and Jerry cartoons on Amazon Prime Instant Video now have a new disclaimer about racism.
The BBC first noticed the disclaimer on the classic cartoons, some created more than 70 years ago, on the menu for Tom and Jerry: The Complete Second Volume. Instead of omitting episodes that contained content of a racist nature, Warner Bros. put in the disclaimer instead, for censoring would be a revisionist maneuver.
“Tom & Jerry shorts may depict some ethnic and racial prejudices that were once commonplace in American society. Such depictions were wrong then and are wrong today. While the following does not represent the Warner Bros. view of today’s society, these cartoons are being presented as they were originally created, because to do otherwise would be the same as claiming that these prejudices never existed.”
The latest version of GLAAD’s Network Responsibility Index focused on 15 networks that produced content during the 2013-2014 programming year—and for the first time in the report’s history, three different networks earned “Excellent” ratings for their commitment to diversity.
HBO, ABC Family, and MTV are all leading the pack in satisfying increasing consumer demand for diverse media content.
And Fox became the highest-scoring network in television history, with 42 percent of its programming hours featuring positive LGBTQ representations.
But now that this goalpost has been reached, GLAAD is upping its standards. Next year, in order to receive an “Excellent” rating, networks must feature “significant transgender content”—a move the organization is making in direct response to the overall lack of representation of trans characters, something this year’s report focused on significantly.
