Arguments for: -Guardians Of The Galaxy, and it came out in August! Not May, not June, not July…but August! It sounds absurd to say it now, but people were surprised at how it performed. And it did perform, making Chris Pratt a STAR -He’s going to follow that up with Jurassic World; that’ll be another monster. Full Story

Arguments for: -Cumhards want it. The Batchies are passionate. They could drive sales of the magazine. -Oscar campaigning for The Imitation Game and Harvey Weinstein is on his side. -Dr Strange rumours. No word yet on who it is but if he is Marvel’s newest superhero, it could be a well-timed announcement to start building anticipation -He’s a good actor with a nice voice Arguments against: -Cumhards are mad at him for getting engaged -He’s internet famous but is he widely famous? Go back to what I said about attraction being a bubble and the internet giving illusions about how universally appealing or popular someone or something is. Full Story
