It literally happened in 2021 AFAIK, to commemorate the movie and streamline the characters. Before that, Makkari was a male. 

Basically, the comic was changed for the movie. :lol:

 

lmao. fair enough.

They changed the whole lore for the movie.

 

"For most of Makkari's publishing history, Makkari was white male. Shortly prior to the release of the Eternals movie, it was revealed that it is common for Eternals to change their appearances (and/or gender) upon their rebirth every 20 or 25,000 years or so." :rofl:

Sounds about right. Diversity, race, gender change and sexuality are a rage in the US so the corporate media wants to be part of it. DC even made Superman bisexual and Marvel is trying hard to compete with that. Lol
 

I don’t read the comics but the premise of the Eternals movie is pretty bad.

DC and Marvel comics and movies are literal examples of

Frankly, they don't even know how to do diversity right. These days, it feels more like the CEO saying "Hey look, we're diverse", but they can't craft a proper story around it.

 

It's why we have these kinds of news -

 

Demon Slayer Manga Outsells Entire American Comic Book Industry

 

I watched an amazing movie today on Netflix called Tokyo Godfathers. One of the main characters is a Crossdresser/Trans. But the story around him/her is so well written that it's just amazing. The movie treats everyone as human beings having their own story to tell; not a caricature whose entire identity revolves around their gender.

 

On another note, for anyone looking for a good movie recommendation, I would heartily recommend Tokyo Godfathers on Netflix

It's a movie about 3 homeless people, who find an abandoned baby in a dumpster and try to reunite the infant with her parents - meeting some really nice, hilarious and oddball characters and situations along the way. I would recommend everyone to try it.

 

Netflix India is really killing it. I never thought we would ever see the day we have so many anime movies (even obscure ones) that we can watch here legally.

Yes some of the things I prefer about  Japanese manga/anime to American comics/cartoons are that in the former there are no multiple universes and political undertones. One complete  story from start to finish before the author work on another story. Different dramas like Mechs/shonen and obscure ones like Dr.stone and Attack on Titan  etc
 

The American comic industry are mostly about superheroes and multiple universes which majority of us know about 5% of them. Thanks to the Marvel movies, we got to know more of them like the Eternals.

They ticked all the checkboxes with Eternal casting:

Gay black hero, Asian overweight hero, differently abled black female hero, Indian hero, strong but mentally unstable female fighter, ginger teenage angsty girl, South American strong female leader, Asian strong female leader, mixed race hero

 

No points for guessing the race and sexuality of the villain

 

 

It was the perfect diversity casting which must have made all the SJWs sleep peacefully at least one night. Unfortunately it is the worst rated marvel movie ever.

Though I would definitely rate it above Thor Dark world and Captain marvel.

The bisexual superman is actually Superman's son and not clark kent.

 

What's annoying is that DC plans to make clark kent black in movies instead of actually making a Static shock movie, lol. I mean there are so many black superheroes, just try and make them bigger like Marvel did with Black Panther.

Thought that was Calvin Ellis Superman, and not Clarke Kent Superman. Calvin Ellis has always been black iirc.

Didn’t know about these information. Crazy times. I mean I know that they use convenient plot points like multiverses to promote diversity.

Discovered this youtube channel few days back and have been hooked to it. So many quality south indian movies dubbed in hindi in great quality. I would have gladly paid for the amount of free content they have. Please share if anyone knows any other south movie channels which have dubbed hindi movies.

Goldmines is a very popular channel and atleast here in Mumbai you can see lots of guys watching it while traveling in local trains or bus. Quality is bad though, just see how they change the names in the opening credits. Sometimes they even edit the movies differently. Just watch the first 10-15 mins of jersey original and Hindi dubbed. Massive spoiler thrown away like it's nothing.

This is the only movie I've watched on Goldmines 

An absolute classic :wub:
