This is your weekly Pop Culture Fix, and I’m your host, Heatherman Jack.
+ At the SDCC panel where we found out Natalie Portman will be returning to the Thor franchise AS THOR, Tessa Thompson also had a thing to say, which is that Valkeyrie’s first order of business as King of Asgard is to FIND HER QUEEN.
+ Supergirl’s back… with bangs! (Related: How to save lives in the Arrowverse. Bonus Batwoman content.) (Speaking of Batwoman, her friendship with Supergirl will be explored further in the coming season.)
Nafessa Williams: “There’s a lot going on with Grace in her head and in her heart, so I hope we can come to some kind of resolution and give the fans what they want because I know how much fans appreciate that relationship. I also hope we get to see more of what’s she’s like on a personal side, non-romantic. Like who is her best friend, what are some secrets she shares with her best friend, what is she like with her friends? I’d like to see that. I’d also like to [see her and Jennifer] kick ass together. Can you imagine two Black superhero sisters with braids and fly hair, flying and doing stuff? I’m ready for that.”
+ Janelle Monáe is replacing Julia Roberts in Amazon’s Homecoming!

Captain America is black. Thor is a woman. the new Blade got two Oscars. 007 is a black woman. And The Little Mermaid bout to have locs.
