It’s been a long-held theory that “Captain America: Civil War” and “Spider-Man: Homecoming” aren’t Peter Parker’s first appearances in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Fans point to a scene from “Iron Man 2” where a little boy in an Iron Man mask stares down a robot at the Stark Expo. There’s speculation that this boy may actually be a young Peter Parker. As evi...

Kirsten Dunst On 'Spider-Man' Reboots: 'We Made The Best Ones, So Who Cares?'
Huffington Post - 9 months
Kirsten Dunst has no time for revamped “Spider-Man” films. The actress starred in a “Spider-Man” trilogy opposite Tobey Maguire in the early aughts and recently spoke out about her distaste for the reboots of the franchise. And, truly, who can blame her? She was a fantastic Mary Jane Watson.  In the July issue of UK’s Marie Claire, the star of the upcoming remake “The Beguiled” said the “Spider-Man” franchise she starred in was the “best.” When asked for her opinion on the Spider-Man reboot, she was also pretty unequivocal. ‘We made the best ones, so who cares? I’m like, “You make it all you want.” They’re just milking that cow for money. It’s so obvious. You know what I mean?’ Dunst likely isn’t wrong about studios “milking that cow.” Maguire and Dunst’s “Spider-Man” brought in a whopping $821.7 million worldwide and 2012’s “The Amazing Spider-Man,” starring Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone, earned $757.9 million. That’s not exactly ch...

Josh Earnest Wants The New York Times To Give Obama Credit For Transparency
Huffington Post - over 1 year
New York Times media columnist Jim Rutenberg made the simple observation this week that Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton, as she crisscrosses the country on the campaign trail, uses two planes ― in one of which she sequesters the traveling press corps. Rutenberg notes, accurately, that this is “a departure from how presidential candidates ... have dealt with their dedicated press corps” since the era of journalists flying hither and yon with presidential contenders began about a half-century ago. Somehow, this piece inspired White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest to dash off a letter to The New York Times, demanding that the paper properly credit President Barack Obama for being a leader in the arena of government transparency. Per Earnest: In “Plane Rides and Presidential Transparency” (Mediator column, Aug. 29), Jim Rutenberg criticized the leading presidential candidates for their lack of transparency, but did not acknowledge the important and unprecedented steps tha...

Silly Elizabeth Banks Didn't Realize She Was 'Too Old' To Be Spider-Man's Girlfriend At 28
Huffington Post - over 1 year
Welcome to Hollywood, a fantasy world where actresses are told they're "not f**kable" enough to carry leading roles and "too old" to play the love interest of someone who is actually their age.  In a recent interview with Glamour UK, Elizabeth Banks dished on her own experience with a sexist, ageist casting experience for 2002's "Spider-Man."   "I screen-tested for the role of Mary-Jane Watson in the first 'Spider-Man' movie, opposite Tobey Maguire," the actress said. "Tobey and I are basically the same age and I was told I was too old to play her. I’m like, ‘Oh, OK, that’s what I’ve signed up for.'"  "I screen-tested for the role of Mary Jane Watson in the first Spider-Man movie, opposite Tobey Maguire. Tobey and I are basically the same age - and I was told I was too old to play her. I was like, 'Oh, OK, that's what I've signed up for'. What I'm grateful for now is longevity. I was never a flavour of the month. I feel very comfortable that I will be working i...

There's A Big Reason Spider-Man Doesn't Look Like This Anymore
Huffington Post - about 2 years
"Captain America: Civil War" is Marvel's opportunity to put Spider-Man into its cinematic universe. Now the movie's directors, the Russo brothers, are explaining that they're treating their great power with responsibility. That means no more dancing for you, Tobey Maguire. Sorry, bruh. In an interview with ComicBook.com, Joe Russo explained that the fact that Spider-Man is a high school student "differentiates him from every other character in the Marvel universe." He says it was "extremely important" that they cast somebody close to high school age. In the case of "Civil War," that turned out to be actor Tom Holland. "The previous films had adults playing a high schooler. We wanted more of an authenticity to the casting. We were very specific about that," said Joe. "We wanted an energy and charisma from the character, an energy, but also an insecurity that would make him fun to watch in contrast to the confident superheroes." "You go look at the home t...

My Academy Award Nominations for Best Health-Themed Movie of 2015
Huffington Post - about 2 years
Although there is no Oscar for the best health-themed movie, each year I nominate films for the year that have the best health themes. I select the winner of my Health Oriented Motion-picture Excellence (HOME) Academy Award just prior to the real Oscar awards by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. The health-themed movies are rated by me based on outstanding presentation of an important health issue that has motivated discussions of the topic and influenced changes in attitudes towards health or dealing with disease. As a physician, I know that what everyone sees on the big screen (and later on our smaller screens at home or on our mobile devices) causes us to think about our personal lives and experiences and informs many of our conversations. So when movies portray important health themes, I use these to talk with my family and also my friends and patients about health issues in our lives, and I trust others do as well. These issues are discussed in more detail in my ...
