Check out this first glimpse of Evangeline Lilly in costume, which she posted on Twitter in celebration of Jack Kirby’s birthday.

Still waiting on that Black Widow movie, though… (via Birth.Movies.Death.)

  • Black Girls Code turned down a $125,000 donation from Uber (because Uber is the worst), then ended up raising even more money themselves in 24 hours. Because black girls, and women, are awesome. (via The Daily Dot)
  • “Well, fuck me gently with a chainsaw.” There’s a promo for the upcoming original scripted TV adaptation of Heathers. What do you think? And will you be watching? (via Deadline Hollywood)
