At the tail end of a lengthy new profile, Robert Downey Jr. doesn’t even try to hide that he’s almost definitely returning to the MCU as Iron Man. “Never, ever bet against Kevin Feige,” Downey said after openly admitting he’d “happily” return as Tony Stark. “It is a losing bet. He’s the house. He will always win.” That answer also jibes with Joanna Robinson’s MCU book, which I can’t recommend enough. While other actors were ready to escape Marvel and make Apple movies or some sh*t, RDJ was extremely reluctant to kill off Tony Stark and the giant-ass checks that came with him. (Esquire)

RFK Jr.’s campaign is now flat-out telling people that its main purpose is to stop another Joe Biden win. That said, I keep a close eye on the accelerationist dipshits trying to sabotage Biden from the Left, and I rarely see any of them backing Kennedy. If anything, he’ll pull votes from Trump thanks to the anti-vaxxer movement shifting from predominantly fringe granola moms to run-of-the-mill Republicans. (The Daily Beast)

Sophia has avoided books on climate change because it’s scary, and The Heat Will Kill You First by Jeff Goodell did terrify her. “But it was interspersed with a lot of detail and stories that occasionally took me out of “panic” mode.” Which books about climate change do you recommend?
