Could Donald Glover Join the Black Panther 2 Cast?

With the success and impact of the first Black Panther film, it only makes sense for Marvel Studios put together yet another film that’ll break even more records. And now, according to a new report in Metro, director Ryan Coogler wants to enlists Donald Glover for a role in the sequel. The rumored talks between the two masterminds are informal, but without a return for Michael B. Jordan‘s Killmonger character, space would open up for Glover to play a villain. The Emmy winner also contributed to an early draft of the Black Panther script, so joining the cast isn’t too farfetched.

Donald Trump Can’t Block People On Twitter Because It Violates The  First Amendment

Donald Trump’s Twitter activity is finally coming back to bite him. With all the controversial and outlandish things he says, he’s got quite a few haters clapping back at him. But, according to the federal Judge Naomi Reice Buchwald, he legally can’t block Twitter users because it violates the First Amendment.

“We hold that portions of the @realDonaldTrump account — the ‘interactive space’ where Twitter users may directly engage with the content of the President’s tweets — are properly analyzed under the “‘public forum’ doctrines set forth by the Supreme Court … and that the blocking of the plaintiffs based on their political speech constitutes viewpoint discrimination that violates the First Amendment,” Buchwald wrote.

 

Jets Owner Says He Will Pay Players’ Anthem-Related Fines

The NFL enacted a new policy that requires players to stand for the Anthem or wait in the locker room until it’s over. Players aren’t too happy with being forced to protest in the dark, and neither is Jets co-owner, Christopher Johnson. And he’s even willing to pay any fine that his players incur.

“I do not like imposing any club-specific rules. If somebody [on the Jets] takes a knee, that fine will be borne by the organization, by me, not the players. I never want to put restrictions on the speech of our players. Do I prefer that they stand? Of course. But I understand if they felt the need to protest,” Johnson told Newsday.
