Bruce Jenner Undergoing Sex Change Transitioning To A Woman

(PCM) This may be news, but it’s no surprise. Yet it is. People Magazine is early to report that it has confirmation Bruce Jenner is undergoing a change in his physical make-up into a woman. In the past this was called a sex change. In the current societal setting it’s known as transitioning to a woman.

jenner-playgirlIt’s a far change from Bruce Jenner’s 1982 Playgirl cover stint. There he was portrayed as boyishly sexy appreciated husband being kissed on the cheek with his shirt off.

Many know Bruce Jenner as the ex-husband to Kris Jenner on the reality TV show Keeping Up With the Kardashians. His initial celebrity break came as a national hero in the 1976 Olympics. Jenner won Gold in the decathlon. He could have continued but strict rules at the time meant any paid endorsements would disqualify him. Jenner’s rise to fame well before the Internet was in a print world, there were few ways to stand out and he did stand out. His celebrity as national hero was cemented when he took the cover of the breakfast cereal Wheaties. In that time such a feat was equal to the cover of Time Magazine.

jenner-wheaties-coversJenner seemed to always enjoy the spotlight and attempted many times over to break into film and television. It was not until 2007’s Keeping Up With The Kardashians that Bruce Jenner became a semi-household name once again. Mainly for his odd long hair and almost feminine behavior.

In years to come speculation on Jenner’s sexuality grew. From the sharp nose and lips work to long hair.  For some viewers and media outlets it was a laughing matter. If People’s reporting is accurate, Jenner’s story will become a docu-series where Jenner may in fact give us a blow-by-blow account all the way down to going under the knife.

bruce-jenner-starIn 2013, Star Magazine ran a cover story reporting it had the goods on Bruce Jenner being a cross dresser and more. In light of this recent development Star’s credibility for accuracy has been gained a few notches.

It is being reported that his family is supportive and putting out there that Jenner is growing more comfortable and confident in his/herself. At 65, Jenner really has nothing to prove. Jenner’s sexuality isn’t going to affect his/her family or Jenner’s business ventures. Jenner will need to learn if the decision was right only through completing the process of taking on the physical traits of a woman, enabling himself/herself to be more the person he/she wants to be.

The transgender issue is the last hot topic in western society. Most do not care, and those that do, ignore it. Few are outraged by it and in Jenner’s case the west coast environment is the most socially accepting area of all. To this end if Jenner wants to portray him or herself as misunderstood and mistreated as a female, that show will only fly outside of modern day California.

Ultimately what Jenner is doing is interesting but it isn’t shocking, groundbreaking or at all unusual in today’s society. Still, you can bet the entertainment world will try at all costs to make money from this and find controversy where it can for ratings if Jenner continues his/her past behavior on screen.

Spider-Man In a Marvel Movie? Civil War!

Marvel Civil War

(PCM) The summer of 2014 had many rumors. Each rumor came to be true with the third appearing to be every bit as much true!

  1. Robert Downey wanted to be Iron Man again but not in an Iron Man solo film.
  2. Deadpool may get his own film. In September it was announced Deadpool will be in theaters February 2016.
  3. Marvel was in talks with Sony to allow Spider-Man to guest appear in a Marvel Studios film.

Two of those three are true. The third and last has all the earmarks of being true. Here is why you should hold out hope that number three will in fact be revealed as true in due time.

Marvel Civil War

If you are true comic book enthusiast you understand certain stories have elements you can’t replace if you bring them to film.

Civil War is one such story. And as Robert Downey Jr. not only confirmed he would be in the Captain America 3 film (confirming rumor #1 above as fact), Downey has also let it escape that Captain America 3 will be a lead into Civil War.

What is Civil War? Yes it was a war between the states in U.S. history, but in the Marvel print universe it a story that took place in 2006.

Try this. Would you like to see Venom standing next to Iron Man ready to fight at his side? That’s just what happened in Marvel’s Civil War.

Marvel Civil War with Spider-Man

The premise was to create a plot line that would divide the Marvel Superheroes in half and have them fight. That was done to earn money – sell comics. The story itself used the political hot potato of the early 2000’s civil liberties issue.

In the Marvel Universe the civil liberties of superheroes was at the center of it. A super hero registration act had been enacted and while it divided Marvel’s superheroes down the middle, no character was more affected than the one and only, Spider-Man.

Peter Parker UnmasksPeter Parker unmasked on national TV and his future and comic changed drastically after Civil War ended.

You could say Peter Parker aka Spider-Man was the center of the Civil War storyline.

Could any other character in Marvel’s current bank be used in place of Peter Parker for a Civil War film on the big screen?

Fox replaced Sue Storm and Kitty Pryde in Chris Claremont’s Days of Future Past in their blockbuster film of the same name using new fan favorite Wolverine as the protagonist. In short, some other superhero can take center stage for Spider-Man but wow… the Internet will go nuts over the notion that Spider-Man may and should be in the Civil War film.

Peter Parker Unmasks

If you are a comic book reader, you may be in the larger majority that Civil War was not a good story. It was a great concept but the story lagged and had a poor ending with an outcome that really negatively affected the Marvel Universe.

Civil War on film could go a number of different directions using the same concept of dividing the superheroes in a fight but it will need a lot of characters to pull it off. After all, in print ALL the Marvel superheroes AND villains were in on the act.

Civil War will obviously be missing a some major components on film. It will be missing all the X-men/mutants and the Fantastic Four due to those characters rights being currently assigned to Fox. Rumors that Sony has seen the light and realized the limits of Spider-Man need to be true as Marvel can’t afford to lose another major player in order to make Civil War work as a viable film event.

Spider-Man saved by Punisher in Civil War

Civil War will be a brave undertaking, without Spider-Man, it will lose most all it’s promise. Some will argue Civil War should not be made into a film at all as it wasn’t well recieved by readers with the horrible ending and outcome to many characters – Spider-Man included. Some can even argue that without the X-Men and Fantastic Four it shouldn’t be made. The largest argument against it will be all the above plus not having Spider-Man. Without him, why bother?

Let’s hope that the secrets between Marvel and Sony are true, Spider-Man will be guest appearing in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. After all, wouldn’t you love to see Peter Parker in the Iron Spider-Man suit?

Tempers Flare On The Set Of Glee


(PCM) According to several sources close to the production of FOX’s Glee claim that majority of the cast is getting pretty fed up with actress Lea Michele’s diva-like demands and behavior while on set.

It is rumored that actress Naya Rivera had finally had enough and went to producers to speak on behalf of herself and the rest of the cast to voice their concerns about Lea’s behavior.

The controversy was stirred up when Lea made the entire cast and crew wait to finish shooting a scene so that she could go deal with personal matters.

Sources claim when Lea returned to the set and got wind of Naya’s chat with the producers she then proceeded to walk off the set. However, if you speak with sources close to Lea, they claim that Lea was completely unaware that Naya had even spoken to the producers and the pair did not even have any recent scenes together.

The Lea sources also go on to say that it was actually Naya who got herself tossed off the set and may have even been fired from the show. Sources close to Naya are denying that she has been fired ,however only time will tell.

Duck Dynasty Axed From Christian Event Due To Wine Business

duck-dynasty1(PCM) A Tennessee Christian organization has pulled the plug on a recent appearance and speaking engagement from Duck Dynasty’s Robertson family due to the family’s latest business venture into the wine business.

Willie Robertson was scheduled to speak at a benefit in Bristol, TN for the bible-driven organization Faith Ministries. However, despite the Robertson family’s emphasis on Christian values and dinner time prayers Faith Ministries decided to cancel the appearance. Derek Bell, director of development for faith ministries had the following statement:

“Our greatest responsibility is to the young people we serve. Therefore, we feel that in light of the recent news, to continue with this event would send mixed messages to the young people who go through our Adolescent Drug and Alcohol program. Our message must be consistent. The lives of those children may well hang in the balance.  We certainly apologize to the people who have already purchased tickets, and pray they understand our position.”

The Robertson family only recently announced their latest business venture which is in conjunction with the winemakers of Trinchero Family Estates in Napa to create Duck Commander Wines. The line will feature a Red, White, and Chardonnay and it set to hit store next month.

This event was a fundraiser planned in support of  Family Ministries’ “School Expansion Project,” and proceeds would have benefited Family Ministries’ planned 10,000-square-foot expansion to provide updated classroom space and counseling facilities for the children that Family Ministries serve.

Tickets are being refunded by the scheduled venue, Viking Hall Civic Center.

The Duck Dynasty brand appears to be popping up with all kinds of products these days and their foray into the wine industry may or may not be a smart move, but with the show’s target demographic being 18-49 yr olds, it should be a fairly good fit. They just need to be sure that they are not alienating other fans in the process. Somehow we don’t think that the Robertson’s were attending the Family Ministries event to promote their wine line!

There has been no comment from the Robertson family thus far on the cancellation.

Angela Lansbury Slams “Murder, She Wrote” Remake!

Murder-She-Wrote1(PCM) As you very well many know, CBS is gearing up to release a revamp of the classic TV series “Murder,She Wrote” and the new series will star the wonderful actress Octavia Spencer. However, there are some that are not too thrilled with the idea of a remake and that person is original “Murder, She Wrote” award-winning actress Angela Lansbury.

Lansbury, who starred in the series as Jessica Fletcher from 1984-1996, had the following comments about the remake news:

“I think it’s a mistake to call it ‘Murder, She Wrote,’” Lansbury said, “because ‘Murder, She Wrote’ will always be about a Cabot Cove and this wonderful little group of people who told those lovely stories and enjoyed a piece of that place, and also enjoyed Jessica Fletcher, who is a rare and very individual kind of person …

“So I’m sorry that they have to use the title ‘Murder, She Wrote,’ even though they have access to it and it’s their right.”

Lansbury went on to say that she is very much a fan of Spencer’s work, but ultimately wishes her well, but wishes it was not for “Murder, She Wrote”.
