Jamie Bell choose different golden armour Henry Cavill little cat!

The low barrier to entry and high accessibility and replay value of lofi hip-hop makes it a welcoming space for budding artists. Canadian singer and songwriter Isaiah Faber, known as Powfu, broke into lofi with his hit “Death Bed (Coffee for Your Head)” on TikTok where it totaled more than 4.1 billion plays during March and has been featured in more than 5.5 million videos this year.

Loading up on villains can work, of course, but only under specific conditions: Tim Burton’s 1992 film Batman Returns famously recruited both Catwoman and the Penguin to great effect — but both of those characters had already established significant cultural footprints steroids.click: beloved by Nerds, recognizable by Normals.

While we remain in perpetual limbo awaiting the release of Daniel Craig’s final outing as iconic secret agent James Bond in No Time to Die, one expert has decided now is the time to crush many a dream, ruling out Man of Steel star Henry Cavill as the 007 replacement. Editor of International Journal of James Bond Studies Dr. Ian Kinane has recently stated that Cavill likely won’t ever be Bond as he’s “too famous.”

The same, it cannot be said, of WW84’s Barbara Minerva (Kristen Wiig) and, especially, Maxwell Lord (a shockingly uncharismatic — nay, acharismatic — Pedro Pascal). Wiig brings a great comic timing to the film’s first half, when her squirrelly anthropologist befriends Diana and — not uncoincidentally — comes into her power. It’s nothing you haven’t seen her do before, but credit should be given to both the actor and the script for finding a way in to a villain that only a handful of comics writers have managed to make effective.

Traditionally, actors who have taken on the role of James Bond have been largely unknown, with the part seen as something of a star-maker. Kinane did have an unexpected suggestion for who could be next in line though saying, “Jamie Bell (Fan4stic) is a good choice because he performed in a movie called Film Stars Only Die in Liverpool which was produced by Barbara Broccoli.”

Pascal, on the other hand, flounders as Lord 24roids.org. Granted, that’s part of the character’s whole schtick — a desperate huckster who’s grasping at anything to stay afloat — but Pascal seems wildly miscast, and his willingness to hurl himself bodily into Lord’s tortured distress only exacerbates that impression.
