SF Gate is reporting that anti-Islam bus ads that have been appearing on city buses have been defaced with images of Marvel’s Ms. Marvel. The ads from  blogger Pamela Geller’s American Freedom Defense Initiative  originally read, “Islamic Jew-Hatred: It’s In The Quran,” and encourage the US to end all aid to Islamic Countries.  They now feature images of Kamala Khan, Marvel’s first Muslim character, who took on the mantle of Ms. Marvel in 2013.

Strange Magic

Lucasfilm’s Strange Magic opened to a very disappointing box office of less than $6 million. According to BoxOfficeMojo.com

George Lucas’ Strange Magic opened to an estimated $5.53 million this weekend, which is one of the worst debuts ever for a movie playing at over 3,000 locations. It’s essentially in the same range as past animated bombs like Hoodwinked Too! Hood vs Evil, Valiant, Everyone’s Hero and Happily N’Ever After.

Strange Magic’s audience was 56 percent female and 38 percent under the age of 13. It’s unlikely that Disney is able to keep these screens after the second week, which means the movie is almost guaranteed to finish below $15 million.

Let’s hope Disney’s next release from Lucasfilm does a bit better.

Marvel and Netflix are proud to announce that David Tennant will star as the villainous Kilgrave in “Marvel’s A.K.A. Jessica Jones,” an all-new 13-episode series premiering on Netflix in 2015 following “Marvel’s Daredevil.”

An enigmatic figure from Jessica’s past, Kilgrave’s reappearance will send shockwaves through the former super hero’s world.

Tennant will star opposite Krysten Ritter and Mike Colter, who will play Jessica Jones and Luke Cage in “Marvel’s A.K.A. Jessica Jones.” The series was developed by Executive Producer/Showrunner Melissa Rosenberg.

“I’m so honored and excited by the prospect of David inhabiting this multifaceted character,” said Rosenberg. “He can deliver the most heart-wrenching moment to the driest of lines, and all points in between. He’ll make Kilgrave a truly original villain.”

“Anyone familiar with David’s work knows he brings an incredible level of dedication to any role he inhabits, a level we knew we would need from the man playing Kilgrave,” said Jeph Loeb, Executive Producer/Marvel’s Head of Television. “While most know him for his roles as a hero, we can’t wait to unleash a whole new side of this talented actor.”

Tennant rose to international fame as the Tenth Doctor in the BBC hit series “Doctor Who,” and most recently starred in “Broadchurch” and its American adaptation, “Gracepoint.”

After a tragic ending to her short-lived super hero stint, Jessica Jones is rebuilding her personal life and career as a detective who gets pulled into cases involving people with extraordinary abilities in New York City.

“Marvel’s A.K.A. Jessica Jones” is produced by Marvel Television in association with ABC Studios for Netflix.
