The American dream is a notion–or well promise–to all people within in our country of peace, safety, justice and most of all equality. However, if you are a Black Man there are time and situations when that notion might as well be a fantasy. Hamilton star Daveed Diggs definitely has this understand down to science as he tackles police brutality and injustice in his new film, Blindspotting!

Blindspotting centers on Collin (Daveed Diggs), an ex-con adjusting to life outside of prison–and with limited freedom–thanks to probation and a legal curfew at his halfway home. He passes his few remaining days focusing on work, while working alongside his eccentric best friend Miles (Rafael Casal). Collin’s attempts to keep his head low and stay out of trouble hit a snag when he witnesses an officer gun down an unarmed Black Man. He does his best to put it behind him but Miles’ antics combined with his growing PTSD began to haunt him like none other. Colin’s crisis of conscience and rage all climaxes to an event you will never see coming!

This film deserves every award on the books! We are not surprised that Daveed is amazing in this film. Anything he touches is GOLD. Even more surprising is that he wrote this moving film with Rafael. Blindspotting is a movie you will laugh, cry, and have to watch again and again because it is just that deep. As a Black Man, or even a person of color in this country, you will relate to Colin and his shortcomings.

Honestly, we need more films–mainstream and independent–to tackle this topic. Indeed, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was right, “Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.” Be sure you catch Blindspotting anywhere it can be found. Daveed and Rafael, kudos, kudos, and KUDOS!

Mr. Fantastic

Word is that there are two very different actors are being considered to play the leader of the Fantastic Four, Reed Richards. One is John Krasinski, the other is John David Washington.

John David Washington is the star of Christopher Nolan’s Tenet and one of the fastest rising stars in Hollywood. He’s also the son of Denzel Washington. According to this rumor the 35-year-old is now one of the top contenders for the role of Reed.

John Krasinski

We’ve heard rumors for awhile now that former Office star turned horror movie (A Quiet Place) director John Krasinski could be up for the part of Reed Richards, aka Mr. Fantastic, in Marvel’s new version of the Fantastic Four. Until now those have just been wild rumors, but we’ve just gotten something a little more concrete.

Roger Wardell tweeted this oddly overlooked message a few days ago…

If you don’t know who Wardell is, he’s a Marvel Insider with a proven track record of getting scoops like these right. So it’s pretty likely that if he says Krasinski is up for a part at Marvel, then he’s up for the part. That said, he doesn’t specify WHICH part Krasinski is up for. But where there’s smoke there’s fire. We’ve been hearing Krasinski for Mr. Fantastic for months now and it’s really hard to imagine Marvel wanting to cast him as the lead in any other superhero movie. He’s uniquely qualified to be Reed Richards in Marvel’s Fantastic Four movie.

We are honestly okay with either actor acquiring the role. We can, however, see John David Washington becoming it more in light of Jonathan Majors being cast as Kang The Conqueror in the Ant-Man 3 movie. Kang, in the comics, is actually a distance ancestor of Reed Richards.
