Supergirl, Greg Berlanti and Ali Adler’s drama based on the DC female superhero, has landed at CBS with a series commitment. The deal closed last night, a day after the project was taken out to the broadcast networks on Wednesday. I hear the size of commitment eclipses the series commitment DC Batman drama Gotham got at Fox last fall. Warner Bros. TV is producing with studio-based Berlanti Prods.

At the end of The First Avenger, Fury is the first dude to walk up to Steve and say, “Sorry to tell you this, but you’ve been asleep for a long time.” At the beginning of The Avengers, Nick drags Steve into the fight, cajoles him, they even have a fun joke bet. Then in The Winter Soldier, Nick trusts Steve over everyone else, goes to him for help, talks to him like a peer, takes his advice.
Steve’s soul interaction with Coulson’s has been “creepy guy who has my cards and died.”
Why do so many people make these relationships the other way around?
i don’t think you understand how important coulson is though. he’s white and has a suit. that’s how important he is.
no, cmon, coulson is charming and humble, fury is a scary authority figure who gets really sarcastic with people. i can see why ficcers would rather ship coulson. if nothing else, someone of fury’s caliber is very difficult to write unless you have some experience of being a stern motherfucker who takes no shit. most ficcers have never mentored anyone, either, it’s a deep mystery to them how it works.
also, hooking up with your boss can be a squicky idea to a lot of people, me included.
These are good points, but I’ve seen in fandoms when the boss character isn’t black— is white or from an anime— no one has any problems having the boss (captain, sensei, professor, manager) and his subordinates fucking like rabbits. there’s actually a lot of kink there. writing sarcastic, angry, reserved authority figures (having a ton of sex) doesn’t daunt amateur ficcers when those authority figures aren’t black. See: Severus Snape, the ultimate stern, scary, sarcastic, overtly nasty asshole who fucks his way through the entirety of Hogwarts and probably a good chunk of the forbidden forest.
Also, see: Coulson is Hawkeye’s boss, nominally, and there is a galloping shit ton of kinkfic that plays on just that dynamic, even though there’s more material between Coulson and his boss, than Hawkeye and his boss. AO3 logs 4,700 results for Coulson/Fury and 11,600 for Coulson/Clint.
You’ll note that Rhodey, Tony Stark’s black friend, gets pretty much the same invisibled treatment by fandom despite being friendly, outgoing, funny, sweet, supportive, and Tony’s best friend since he was a teenager. They have a ton of chemistry in the Iron Man movies. In fandom? Not so much.
Black characters and their chemistry, sexuality, and even their relationships with white characters, are consistently ignored by fic writers who certainly don’t think of themselves as racist, but just don’t…. know what to do about race, I guess, or have quietly internalized that black people just aren’t of any particular importance. It’s a pretty blatant pan-fandom thing. It’s not an isolated ‘Nick Fury is scary’ problem.
And as you said, Coulson is white.
And he does have a suit.
favorite action sequences
↳ captain america: the winter soldier - nick fury is attacked
Look at this. JUST LOOK AT HOW FUCKING BADASS THIS IS.
But you still truly fear for him, because this shit happens right in the middle of a city in broad daylight, where they’re gonna riddle him with bullets and tear him into pieces. And how most people would then regard him simply as a common criminal rightfully pursued by the police, who deserved the very public execution he’s about to get.
There’s a lot to be said about how they chose the “police” machinery to take down Fury, while Steve and company was pursued by nondescript Hydra thugs and the presumably private STRIKE team. They would have absolutely no problem to murder Fury then and there, but with Steve they know they simply cannot do it when there are witnesses around.
Not here, they say for Steve Rogers. But right here and right now for Nick Fury.
And also? Before the attack, Fury sees the white cops eyeballing him in his nice SUV and says “you wanna see my lease?” This man has decades of experience in intelligence operations. He’s been lead developer on an international security-based predictive analysis program. He’s an operations mastermind.
AND NICK FURY DOESN’T SEE THIS ATTACK COMING BECAUSE THE WARNING SIGNS LOOK EXACTLY LIKE THE AVERAGE INSTITUTIONAL RACISM HE SEES ON A REGULAR BASIS.
plz keep in mind that the riots in glasgow are not simply no voters…they’re extremists….. it’s the orange order… not no voters in general… plz make that distinction. the orange order is bad. people who voted against independence aren’t. even if u disagree w/ them, ur general run of the mill no voter is not out there rioting. keep in mind there were like 3 million no voters… stop lumping them all in w/ the orange order
why would you say game grumps after sex
My yes voting neighbours car has just been smashed by a squad of 12 no voters. It’s suspected they’ve smashed about 4 more on the way. My uncle almost got attacked for trying to chase them off. I’m in Livingston and the police are not coming
This is not Glasgow this is 35 miles away
Please everyone in Scotland brace yourselves and hide all yes stickers
How to spot a fake geek guy:
- says robin is useless
- says aquaman is useless
- worships batman bc batman is invincible
- doesn’t “understand” superman because he’s not relatable or interesting
- makes “hero vs hero” posts
- probably smells like axe
