Kraven the Hunter is a bit of an anachronism in Spider-Man’s rogue’s gallery. He’s often portrayed as a famous big-game hunter who people kind of love when he shows up to hunt Spider-Man, the most dangerous game. The issue is that in 2021 people hate big game hunters. Lions killed by big game hunters have Wikipedia pages.
In the most recent Spider-Man cartoon, Spider-Man, Kraven is a reality TV star which kind of makes sense but I still can’t imagine people watching a show about a big game hunter on TLC or whatever.
At the same time, Kraven is the central character in one of the best Spider-Man stories ever, Kraven’s Last Hunt. Kraven does something that comic book villains don’t often do and he defeats Spider-Man. It ends with Kraven killing himself, essentially because he has nothing left to accomplish in life. It leaves adaptations in a rough spot because Kraven is a big part of Spider-Man’s mythology but he also has a concept that doesn’t really fit in today’s world.
So when I saw the rumors that Keanu Reeves was being approached by Sony to play Kraven in a stand-alone movie (sort of like Tom Hardy’s Venom), I was skeptical.
Sony definitely wants to milk the Spider-Man license for everything they can get from it, so the idea that they would look at Kraven for a spin-off isn’t surprising. CBR says the project is “a ‘mashup’ between Logan and Man on Fire,” which says to me it’ll have Kraven with a little kid sidekick.
One of the problems with adapting Kraven’s Last Hunt is that Kraven had been fighting the old Webhead for like 25 years when it came out. They had a history between them and it meant something for Kraven to finally defeat him. It needs build-up and space to breathe, which Logan also needed. That wouldn’t have worked as the first appearance of Logan or Professor Xavier.
But it is believable because Sony is pretty bad at making superhero movies. Really, Spider-Man 2 was a high point for superhero films, but they followed that up with Spider-Man 3 and the Amazing Spider-Man movies. Based on their track record and the leaks we’ve seen of their internal discussions, this is just the sort of thing they’d think was great.
Let’s just hope it falls apart like that Sinister Six movie they were planning.

There was a movie that came out when I was in high school called Dude, Where’s My Car? that starred Ashton Kutcher and Sean William Scott getting so high they lost their car. They were a couple of idiot stoners because you would pretty much have to be to lose an entire car.
Offset, most famous for being the guy Cardi B can’t stop fucking despite the fact that he keeps cheating on her, lost a car. A Bentley, to be specific.
TMZ had the details about how Offset lost an entire car.
Hairspray. It keeps your hair in place once you’ve styled it. You’ve probably used it. So many people used it at one point that the CFCs used as a propellant punched a hole in the ozone layer (one that has filled back in with ozone since we stopped using CFCs).
Hairspray is mostly alcohol that evaporates and leaves a residue of PVP or other polymers that hold the hair in place and theme harmlessly wash out with gentle soaps like shampoo.
Gorilla Glue, on the other hand, is made of polyurethane, that lacquer you put on your floor to keep water from damaging the wood. It does not come out with a gentle shampoo. It requires harsh chemicals like acetone or alcohol to remove.
Tessica Brown went viral on TikTok when she used Gorilla Glue in her hair because she was out of hairspray.

It was a mistake.
It’s a few days later and she still hasn’t gotten the glue out of her hair.
TMZ reports that Brown went to the hospital, was there for 22 hours and she left with her hair still glued in place. She’s tried both acetone and alcohol in her hair with no results to speak of.
She’s not going to want to hear this but she’s going to have to shave her head and start over. She has ruined her hair and she’s not going to save it.
TMZ also reports Brown is considering suing.

Joy-Anna Duggar Grosses Everyone Out: I’ve Been Wanting to Hook Up With My Husband Since I Was a Kid!
If you know anything about the Duggars, you know the whole family is strangely obsessed with sex.
That may sound like an odd statement, considering they're a bunch of evangelicals who believe sex was created by the devil, but it's totally possible to be obsessed with something you hate.
If your #Resistance boomer parents have been depressed since the day Joe Biden was sworn into office, then you know exactly what we mean.
Anyway, when Jim Bob and Michelle's kids enter adolescence they're completely clueless about sex and male-female relationships as a result of their ridiculously sheltered upbringings.
At times, this has resulted in catastrophe, such as in the case of the Josh Duggar sex scandals.
But most of the time, it just leads to the Duggar kids making painfully awkward comments whenever they talk about sex publicly, which they do with surprising frequency.
The latest to demonstrate that she doesn't quite understand how the world works is Joy-Anna Duggar.
Joy answered some questions from fans in her latest YouTube video, and one of her responses has stirred up a good deal of controversy.
“When and how did you know that Austin was more than an everyday crush?” one person asked.
Now, to her credit, Joy's answer about the moment she developed feelings for her future husband appears to be completely honest.
Unfortunately, it's more than a little icky.
"The moment that I knew that Austin was more than an everyday crush was — he was 17, I was 13, almost 14," she shared.
"And this is not 'I knew he was the one,' but this was more than liking him; he was cute," Joy went on.
From there, Joy offered an account of the night she fell for Austin.
"Austin was over at my family's house playing volleyball; it was normal," the mother of two said.
"My family was around, and if you know my dad, he will have people randomly share a testimony of how they got saved," she added.
"He had Austin share that night, and he shared his testimony of his hard teen years and that he really wanted to serve the lord."
Austin complied with Jim Bob's weird request, and it seems that Joy was blown away by his performance.
"And I was like 'wow! You don't see that in guys ever.' And ever since then, I had a huge crush on him and really admired him," she said.
"So it just continued from there, and now we're happily married."
Some random middle-aged guy asking you to stand up and talk about Jesus in front of a bunch of strangers might sound like a nightmare for most 17-year-olds, but apparently, Austin really seized the opportunity to shine.
Five years later, of course, Joy and Austin got married, and the rest, as they say is history.
Back in August of 2020, Joy-Anna welcomed her second child, and she seems to be thoroughly enjoying her life of quiet domesticity.
That's great and all, but this couple seemed a lot more wholesome before we knew they were making eyes at each other when he was 17, and she was freakin' 13.
Like, a four-year age difference isn't always a big deal -- but 13 to 17? Those are two very different ages!
Granted, it's not like these two acted on their impulses at that age, so there's no reason to believe anything illegal went down.
Maybe we just assume the worst about every situation involving the Duggars for the sole reason that they're the Duggars.
But to be fair, this family has given us many, many reasons to regard them with suspicion.
Madison Beer is another celebrity who has taken their talents over to the TiKTok platform where she shares clips from upcoming music project and a look into her daily life.
Madison has also been posting videos using silly soundbites like this amazing Marge Simpson one, where in the video she basically shows us that she bought a dress Christina Aguilera used to own, yet somehow it looks even better on Madison?
Madison’s new TiKTok video is something she was apparently pressured into posting to the platform, she captioned it with “i was peer pressured into posting this you didn’t see this”. Well we saw it! Watch Madison dance to this mashup of The Love Shack and Toxic by Britney Spears!

Dua Lipa recently announced that she is releasing new music, this comes after her album Future Nostalgia dropped last summer and has hung around the number 1 spot not he charts for a while.
She’s been bopping around during this pandemic which has brought out some haters on her Instagram posts, but just as soon as someone makes a comment about her travelling the world during a pandemic, she has her fans coming to the rescue to tell the haters to shut up. Seriously her comment section is kinda lit.
The new Moonlight edition of her album will drop February 12th and she’s already teasing her fans with even more music to come. Dua shared some photos of her in the zone recording and writing songs. In the meantime, here she is in the promo shots for The Moonlight Edition!

Bella Thorne is looking for her own John Travolta apparently this weekend when filming a little behind the scenes look at a recent photoshoot she was doing. The MOGUL put on a blonde wig and some yellow retro hot pants and had her makeup done by Makeup by Samuel, an LA based artist who’s work we’ve seen on everyone from Bebe Rexha to Chantel Jeffries.
Bella took a break from her photoshoot to belt out the Grease song Hopelessly Devoted To You and told her audience that she was looking for her Danny Zuko, captioning the post with “Where’s my John Travolta at??”.
It looks like Bella was on set shooting some content for her premium content site and had brought 18 year old Cuban singer Malú Trevejo in on the x-rated photoshoot. Here they are behind the scenes!

In December of 2018, Christina El Moussa married Ant Anstead.
Not even two years later, Christina and Ant's marriage was over.
Christina is moving on, but some of her fans are deeply worried.
Has she lost a dangerous amount of weight amidst her divorce?
"My fave attire: black on black on black [black heart emoji]," Christina captioned a recent photo of herself.
She added the tag: "#JohnnyCashVibes"
However, it was her clearly visible thigh gap and very slender legs that had fans raising their eyebrows.
Sometimes, people eat a lot as a stress response. Others, however, do the opposite, either eating less or exercising more.
These are all normal stress responses, but they can result in unhealthy -- and rapid -- weight loss.
Fans quickly poured into Christina's comments with concerns after she posted the photo.
The comments were so numerous and so earnestly worried that Christina responded just hours later.
"So people are commenting that I looked really skinny or I that need to eat," Christina observed.
She explained: "This is actually the weight I’ve always weighed."
"You guys have just watched me have babies," Christina reasoned to her fans and followers.
"And," she continued, only now has she had a chance to reclaim her non-preggo body and "go back to my original weight."
Not everyone can attain their "pre-baby body" for a lot of physiological reasons, but some can.
"So, don’t worry. Everything’s fine,” the 37-year-old mother assured her fans.
“Chill people," she added.
Christina concluded in the message to her concerned followers: "I eat and I eat healthy."
Concerns about weight loss can be extremely valid, especially when related to famous women who are going through a stressful time.
Divorce is a major life stressor, and whether she's going by Christina El Moussa, Anstead, or Haack, she is one famous woman.
But there are very few contexts where "eat a cheeseburger" isn't a rude -- if not downright body-shaming -- thing to say.
Christina and Ant announced their separation in September of 2020.
The divorce announcement came three months later, in December.
They are seeking equal custody of their 17-month-old toddler, Hudson. Neither of them are seeking support from the other.
Ant expressed that he felt devastated by the divorce.
He told fans and the media that Christina was the one who had decided upon the divorce.
Very few divorces happen without hurt feelings on at least one side of things.
In late January, Christina made a major change on Instagram.
She changed her display name to Christina Haack, signaling that she wants Ant's surname off of hers.
Name-changing can be dramatic, and many who get divorced do not consider it worth the hassle (or cost) to change their names.
Particularly, some couples who share children retain the same last names -- to keep their child's surname.
In Christina's case, this was kind of moot, since she would inevitably not share the last name of at least some of her children.
Clearly, Christina is feeling a desire to separate Ant's whole name from her, and she's doing it sooner rather than later -- even if she's starting on Instagram. Good for her.
Miley Cyrus was asked to perform for a bunch of healthcare workers as part of a TikTok/NFL tailgate party that took place before the big game yesterday. You can tell it was a crowd of healthcare workers based on the signs they were holding up, not cheering for the Chiefs or Tampa Bay, not even “marry me Miley” signs, they were there to cheer on the vaccine!
Leading up to the big show, Miley shared a few words from her flight to Tampa which she spent stretching on the floor of her plane and showing of her manicure:
Miley took the stage in one of the outfits we previously saw her trying on during a fitting before changing into a football jersey later in the show.
The singer totally killed this performance as expected and even gave us some throwback tunes by singing We Cant Stop and Party in the USA.
The Wrecking Ball singer also brought out a few friends to play along with her, including Billy Idol and Joan Jett. Give Miley the Lombardi trophy because she was the WINNER on Super Bowl Sunday!
A fan later spotted Miley watching the game from the stands, with a bottle of Bud in her hand!

She also showed us more of her comedic side when she remade that annoying YouTube fitness ad.
The 25 year old recently hit up the slopes for a ski trip with her boyfriend and made sure to film a TikTok while she was at it, in doing so she also let us know what her pre-snowboard warm up is like and it involves downing a mini bar bottle of Fireball Whisky!

Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers defeated Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday night by a score of 31-9.
It was a stunning result.
And yet: Brady winning his seventh Vince Lombardi Trophy at the age of 43 was somehow NOT the most surprising happening in Tampa over the weekend.
Not when Peter Weber and Kelley Flanagan were spotted at the same pre-Super Bowl LV parties over the weekend.
Whoa, right?!? What might this mean?
Despite the rise of coronavirus cases nationwide -- and despite the fact that multiple people really should not be hanging out in the same place -- the former Bachelor lead enjoyed a night out at the WTR Pool and Grill, where Diplo performed, on Saturday, February 6.
Flanagan was also in attendance at the event.
Social media users immediately buzzed over the sightings.
Weber and Flanagan, after all, broke up five weeks ago, with Peter making the sad announcement on December 31.
The couple had gotten together several weeks after Weber's season of The Bachelor concluded; after Peter had tried and failed at relationships with suitors Hannah Ann Sluss and Madison Prewett.
A lawyer and also a contestant on the show, Flanagan was sent home by Weber long before the finale was filmed.
According to E! News insiders, Weber and Flanagan "were together the entire night" on Saturday.
"They looked happy and we're having fun drinking and dancing together and with their friends," this source reports.
Did they end the evening in bed together?
We can't say for certain.
"Peter and Kelley knew they were both planning to be in Tampa for the Super Bowl and had plans to meet up," this same insider reveals. "They have been in touch and are working on their relationship."
To be clear, these two are not back together. Yet.
"Peter has been reaching out to Kelley and regrets their breakup," the source says, adding:
"Kelley is very hesitant and thinks he's not ready to commit to her but still has feelings for Peter."
We can't really blame Flanagan for being hesitant, can you?
"Love is a funny thing," Weber wrote as a caption to a lovely photo of the pair very late last year.
"It can make you you feel on top of the world and it can make you feel a pain you wish didn't exist. I'm here to share that Kelley and I have decided to go our separate ways.
"While our relationship was filled with countless beautiful memories, our relationship simply didn't work out in the end."
Weber, who finished in third place on Hannah Brown's season of The Bachelorette and famously slept with that star four times inside of a windmill, added:
"Kelley is someone I will always have a special love for."
"Someone I have learned more from than she will ever understand.
"Someone I am so thankful came into my life and someone who I will always wish all of life's greatest blessings on."
It doesn't sound like Weber cheated on Flanagan or anything, just that his feet got very cold over the prospect of living together in New York City.
"These moments in life always hurt, but in my opinion that shows you it was worth the time you spent together. Thank you Kelley," he concluded on Instagram.
For her part, Flanagan waited a few days to issue a statement.
She then wrote that she needed time to "process" all that had transpired.
"It saddens me to say this but Peter and I have decided to go our separate ways," Flanagan then said on social media.
"Peter and I had some unbelievable times together and they will definitely be missed.
"Unfortunately him and I are in two different stages of our lives and saw our future paths differently.
"I wish Peter the absolute best and want to thank everyone for your continued support as I move on to my next chapter.
"I’m still hoping to make it to New York one of these days, but for now I just want to focus on my happiness! 2021, I can’t wait to see what you have in store!"

How bad do you have to f**k up to be a musician and for the public at large to decide your behavior is beyond the pale? David Bowie had sex with underage groupies all the time and no one batted an eye. Chris Brown won over a dozen BET awards and another 34 BMI awards, along with some two dozen Billboard nominations (and one more win) after he plead guilty to beating Rihanna while they were dating.
Marilyn Manson has seemingly found the line you have to cross to have the public turn on you when you’re a musician, as his label, manager, and talent agency all dropped him as a client in the wake of Evan Rachel Wood and others detailing his allegedly abusive behavior, which he denies.
The hole Manson is in keeps getting deeper and things keep looking worse for him, though.
For starters, Ellie Roswell, singer for the band Wolf Alice, says Manson tried to get some upskirt video of her with a GoPro at a music festival. Seriously.
“I met Marilyn backstage at a festival a few years ago. After his compliments towards my band became more and more hyperbolic I became suspicious of his behaviour,” her post reads. “I was shocked to look down and see he was filming up my skirt with a GoPro.”
Rowsell continues: “There were no repercussions for his behaviour, his tour manager simply said ‘he does this kind of thing all the time.’ If he does this kind of thing all the time why on earth has he been headlining festivals for so many years? When will we stop enabling misogynists on the account of their success? Women must feel safe in the male dominated world that is the music industry.”
That seems really weird. You’re one of the biggest stars in the music world and you’ve got mirrors on your shoes like Pee-Wee Herman and Cowboy Curtis?
Evan Rachel Wood had more allegations, with THR reporting she claimed Manson’s wife threatened to released nude pictures of Wood taken when she was underage.
“On Dec. 19, I had to file a police report after I was alerted to threats made by @leslee_lane and @lindsayusichofficial (Brian’s wife) for conspiring to release photos of me when I was UNDERAGE, after being given large amounts of drugs and alcohol, after Brian performed on Halloween in Las Vegas to ‘ruin my career’ and ‘shut me up,’ wrote the Westworld star.
She also said he was a massive racist.
Further into Wood’s Instagram story, she resurfaced a post from Friday in which the actress provides more details of what she experienced with Manson. “I was called a jew in a derogatory manner,” wrote Wood. “He would draw swastikas over my bedside table when he was mad at me. I heard the ‘n’ word over and over.”
It’s just a massive collection of every single behavior that gets a person canceled 2021. Manson needs to get one of those red MAGA hats to start tricking the people who have protested him for the past 20 years to buy his albums in solidarity.

WandaVision has been a very strange show, and it’s not getting any less strange as it goes on, despite episode four’s brief foray into the real world. Episode five, On a Very Special Episode…, cranked up the weirdness surrounding Wanda and Vision’s sitcom world right from the beginning.
At the center of it, once again, was Kathryn Hahn’s Agnes, who started the show by asking Wanda and Vision if they wanted her to do another take in the middle of a conversation about newborn twins Billy and Tommy. Agnes was completely unfazed when the twins aged themselves up to five and then ten years old, practically right in front of her, and Wanda and Vision had a heated argument when Wanda used her powers in front of Agnes, who again acted oblivious.
We did find out that Wanda knows the world she’s in isn’t real; she dramatically exited Westview, reclaimed her Eastern European accent and told S.W.O.R.D. to leave her alone before reenforcing the magic field around Westview with red energy.
Everyone at S.W.O.R.D. seems convinced Wanda is behind all the strangeness in Westview, but Agnes is always just showing up when Wanda needs help with something or she and Vision need distracting. Everything strange that happens inside what Darcy calls “The Hex” happens around Agnes. When we saw Wanda use her powers on it, they were red. Wanda’s hex powers are always red. If she’s the one trapping everyone inside, why isn’t the energy field red to begin with?
Also, our biggest piece of proof that Wanda is behind the weirdness is the tape of her stealing Vision’s body from S.W.O.R.D., but as Darcy points out, Vision didn’t want to be turned into a weapon after he was killed, so what exactly was S.W.O.R.D. studying him for? Just last episode Monica told S.W.O.R.D.’s director “It says ‘Observation and Response’ on that door, not ‘Creation.’” Vision sure looked like he was being studied to me, but to what end?
Speaking of Vision, he managed to break the spell over his workmate Norm, who said a woman was in his head and that the mind control was painful. Vision, like us in the audience, assumes he means Wanda, who does display a good deal of control over the sitcom reality of Westview, trying to roll the credits to avoid a fight with Vision, which Vision isn’t having.
As Wanda starts to tell Vision she’s not controlling the people in the neighborhood and that she doesn’t know how it started, there’s a knock at the door, and Wanda swears to Vision she isn’t responsible. When she answers the door, it’s her brother Pietro… kind of. Darcy exclaims “She recast Pietro!?” and we get a good look at Evan Peters, who played Quicksilver in the X-Men movies and was a much superior version of Quicksilver to the MCU’s.
Remember when I said Agnes always seems to be around to provide a distraction? She was also heavily involved in the episode’s sitcom plot, which involved Billy and Tommy getting a dog that dies eating Agnes’s azaleas. The twins beg Wanda to bring the dog back to life, telling her “you have to bring him back, he’s family,” in a way reminiscent of episode two’s chorus of “for the children” before Wanda ended up pregnant.
Wanda has a level of control over the sitcom reality because of her powers and awareness that it isn’t real, but I think she was being honest when she told Vision it wasn’t her doing. Wanda is hurt and broken and maybe a little crazy, but she’s not malevolent. I think she had a good reason to take Vision’s body, to uphold his wish that it not be used to make more weapons, and I think she’s found herself wrapped up in someone else’s plot in Westview.
But the big question is how did this new Pietro get to the MCU and is he really the same Peter Maximoff we saw in the X-Men films? It would be incredibly anti-climactic to find out “oh, it’s just an Easter egg” and he’s just some brainwashed resident playing a part like the rest of Westview. And he had the same general demeanor as Quicksilver.
WandaVision is tied to Spider-Man 3 (rumored to be subtitled Homeworlds) and Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, both of which deal with the concept of a multiverse, which the Fox X-Men films would be a part of. It seems like someone looking to keep Wanda and Vision from working together and comparing notes on Westview could have plucked an alternate version of Wanda’s brother from the multiverse and placed him in Westview as a distraction. But who could have possibly done such a thing, what is her ultimate plan and where does she get those stylish broaches from?
