Remembering Kirk Douglas

To be honest, I didn’t know anything about Kirk Douglas until a few days ago proceeding on a venture through Disney+. Currently, my family and I are having fun on the streaming service by watching the movies available on the service therefrom A-Z. One of the first movies on the list that we watched was 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea.

The Disney film which came out in 1954 starred Kirk Douglas. It was the first film I had ever seen featuring the legendary Hollywood actor. It wasn’t until my parents told me that Kirk Douglas was the father of Michael Douglas, who I know thanks to the Ant-Man movies, that I really began to appreciate who he was.

So imagine my surprise when, yesterday, it was announced that Kirk Douglas had died at 103-years-old. What an incredible life he must’ve lived having seen so many impactful moments in American history over the last century. He even lived long enough to see the first African-American president. Wow!

I’m just thankful that I got to see one movie of his before his passing. RIP Kirk Douglas.

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a wonderful day.

Could Steve Rogers Appear in ‘The Falcon and the Winter Soldier’?

After revisiting Avengers: Endgame last night and knowing what we could expect in The Falcon and the Winter Soldier later this year, could we see Steve Rogers play a small role in the Disney+ series?

Answer: very easily.

Steve Rogers was a major factor in both Bucky Barnes and Sam Wilson’s lives. He impacted them in ways that no other person had and we’ll undoubtedly see them trying to carry on his legacy in that six-episode series.

Steve Rogers could play a small but brief role that could be very exciting or he might, on a more somber note, have an impact on the story in the way that Peggy did in Captain America: Civil War. Yeah, he might officially pass.

Talk about tears. That would be very saddening.

All in all, to make the series complete, Steve Rogers has to be in it, if even momentarily.

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a great day.

The Dark Knight Lives (THIRTY-NINE)

Gloria Ramirez knew that being a hero was hard work but she still hadn’t quite comprehended just how hard that work would be. Robin was a good teacher but he was stern and unforgiving.

Starting the morning after her arrival at his secret base he began to train her in superhero boot camp and it was evident very quickly that she may have asked for more than she bargained for.

She was first taken for a long three-hour jog around the city in the wee hours of the morning when the bitter cold was near-excruciating. She was only allowed a thin cardigan to wear over her exercise garments–thankfully he was lenient enough to let her wear a thin pair of gloves so her hands wouldn’t freeze. The jog was casual but nonstop, meaning by the end of the run she felt like her lungs were going to explode and her heart rate was so high she thought she might pass out onto the concrete. Then what would he say? Continue reading The Dark Knight Lives (THIRTY-NINE)
