Friends, hello, and welcome to 2022 and your first Pop Culture Fix of the year!
+ Here’s a rumor I love and want to believe so badly! Okoye will have a girlfriend in Black Panther 2??
+ Here’s another good rumor: Florence Pugh and Hailee Steinfeld will maybe team up for Black Widow 2???
+ And a final MCU rumor for the day is that Valkyrie’s gonna be in The Marvels.
+ All of this information led Carmen and I into our classic scuffle wherein I ship Maria Rambeau and Carol Danvers for life, and Carmen wants to see Carol hook up with Valkyrie. There’s no link to this bullet point, I just wanted to, once again, MAKE MY SHIP STANCE KNOWN.
+ Gentleman Jack is on its way back!
+ This is the last time I’m mentioning Miranda Lambert’s “gay anthem,” Y’all Means All, I swear, but here is the final song.

+ Over at NYT, Beandrea July is doing a spotlight of Pariah at 10 (years old, not o’clock).
+ Another day, another gay on Freeform.
