Michael B. Jordan says he would be down to come back for Black Panther 2 if requested.

Jordan, 33, sat down for an interview with People and discussed his partnership with International WELL Building Institute and its WELL Health-Safety Rating. While chatting, he also opened up about Joe Biden’s administration and whether or not he’d be open to reprising his role as Erik “Kilmonger” in the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s hit blockbuster film “Black Panther.”

When it comes to Black Panther 2, the actor says he would, without a doubt, return to set if asked. “That’s something that is very, very near and dear to my heart for a lot of obvious reasons,” he said. “[I] had a really tough year losing somebody close to me. And what that means for that franchise is it was devastating,” Jordan said, mentioning the sudden loss of iconic actor Chadwick Boseman.

“But being in that world in a character that I loved playing, and working with [writer/director Ryan Coogler] and all that good stuff, it’s family. We created a family over there,” he continues. “So to be able to be in that world again is something that, I think, will always be on the table in some capacity.” Black Panther producer Kevin Feige said it was “pure rumor and speculation” regarding Jordan’s possible returning, as “[Ryan] is just only in recent weeks sitting down at his keyboard and beginning to outline the movie.”

In the meantime, Jordan is gearing up to make his directorial debut for the upcoming “Creed III.” He’ll also be acting in “Without Remorse” and “Journal for Jordan.” He says he’s “extremely excited” about the chance to do an “intimate love story” mainly because he will be working with “the GOAT,” Denzel Washington. “Being able to be directed by [Denzel] is a blessing and such a learning experience for me,” Jordan says. “And also working opposite Chanté Adams, who’s a very talented actress coming out of Detroit, and being able to tell a love story, playing [a] real-life person.”

“That’s another thing: When you play real people … there’s a certain level of care and respect that you bring to it that it’s unlike anything [else] that you could really do,” he continues. Jordan also shared his perspective on Joe Biden and Kamala Harris’ entry into the White House. He said he is “looking for a positive outlook” and “anything beyond the last four years.”

“I think there’s a lot of work that needs to be done. I think there’s a lot of listening that needs to be done. And I think right now we have one of the best opportunities to really make some change and get things back on track,” Jordan continues. “We took a little detour, but it’s time for us to get back on track.”

Open Post: Michelle Obama praises Zaya Wade’s courage and bravery

Michelle Obama took time out of her busy schedule to chat with male-to-female adolescent Zaya Wade.

The former First Lady told Zaya she was proud of the youngster who is ex-NBA star Dwyane Wade’s youngest born son, formerly Zion Wade.

The chat was awkward and both participants seemed at a loss for words at times.

What does a grown woman say to a 12-year-old child who is apparently on female hormones and puberty blockers?

“We’ve already heard so many great things about you,” Mrs. Obama said, as the youngster giggled.

Zaya skipped a class to chat with Mrs. Obama who was very appreciative.

“I am just so proud of you, being an amazing role model and embracing your truth right?” Obama said.

Democrats are gently steering more Black boys to try puberty blockers. Joe Biden’s assistant health secretary Dr. Rachel Levine previously expressed support for gender confirming surgery in teens.

Dr. Levine, who is openly transgender, said “street youth” should not receive puberty blockers, but proceed immediately to taking cross-sex hormones.

“You’re already doing this,” Mrs. Obama told Zaya, “so maybe this is for some other young people that are listening.”

Outrage: Space Jam’s Lola Bunny is decidedly less sexy in the sequel

Warner Bros.

Social media is in an uproar over the modernized, less sexy look of Space Jam 1 star Lola Bunny in the sequel, Space Jam: A New Legacy.

If you recall, the original Lola Bunny was a top heavy sexy siren who made male fans forget for a minute that she was an animated bunny rabbit.

But this is a new day, and liberals have taken over Hollywood. They have something to say about top heavy sexy sirens — even if they are just cartoon rabbits.

Fans are mortified over the desexualization of Lola Bunny 2.0 in the sequel. Gone are Lola’s sexy curves and her ample boobs are nonexistent. Instead of a crop top and short shorts, Lola is clad in the same genderless team uniform as the boys.

Social media reacted to the drastic change by pointing out that Lola Bunny now looks like a WNBA player — 80% of whom are male-identified lesbians.
 

L.A. Lakers star LeBron James makes his leading man debut in the new Space Jam: A New Legacy sequel to 1996’s Space Jam starring the g.o.a.t. Michael Jordan.

LeBron appears in the sequel alongside the Looney Tunes all-stars: Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Tweety, Taz and Lola Bunny.

But no one is talking about LeBron, because, apparently, a bunny rabbit is more interesting than he is.
 

LeBron is probably not happy that a bunny rabbit is taking all his shine in his first big screen debut.

No doubt someone on his team sat him down and gently explained that if no one was talking about Lola Bunny, there would be no buzz about the film at all.

Space Jam: A New Legacy director Malcolm D. Lee dismissed the criticism of new look Lola Bunny.

He tells Entertainment Weekly that he was caught off guard by the “very sexualized” look of the original Lola Bunny, and he thought her look should be updated for a more liberal audience.

“This is 2021. It’s important to reflect the authenticity of strong, capable female characters, a.k.a. the team’s best non-LeBron player.”

His explanation may be PC, but fans are exhausted by the liberal gymnastics.

One Twitter user wrote: “I don’t care that Lola Bunny is dressed less sexy in Space Jam 2 but I am unbelievably exhausted by the idea that the way you communicate that a female character is to be taken seriously is by removing her boobs.”

A fan of the original took the time to depict Lola Bunny 2.0 the way she should look in 2021.

The CDC Updated Its Zombie Apocalypse Preparedness Guide

The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has released a guide for how to survive a zombie apocalypse.

“Dawn of the Dead,” “Zombieland,” we’ve seen all the zombie classics on screen. But could it possibly happen in real life? The CDC seemingly thinks so. The 16th-century French astrologer Nostradamus predicted there would be a zombie apocalypse in 2021, and here we are in 2021, and the CDC is not going to slip up without letting you know how to be ready for it….if it does happen.

According to Yahoo! News, the CDC recently updated its Zombie Preparedness section on its website, which was initially created in 2011. While the CDC notes that it’s clearly a joke, it seems they aren’t taking any chances since we are still recovering from a sudden global pandemic that none of us knew how to prepare for.

“Wonder why zombies, zombie apocalypse, and zombie preparedness continue to live or walk dead on a CDC web site?” the landing page reads. “As it turns out, what first began as a tongue-in-cheek campaign to engage new audiences with preparedness messages has proven to be a very effective platform. We continue to reach and engage a wide variety of audiences on all hazards preparedness via ‘zombie preparedness.’”

For those wanted to know what to do, the CDC provides lesson plans for teachers on zombie preparedness equipped with a downloadable poster that reads, “Get a Kit. Make a Plan. Be Prepared.” The guide also instructs people to be well-stocked with food, water, and medical supplies to last at least 72 hours. It also says to make sure to have power sources, medical records, and an emergency supply of prescription drugs. The page states that if you get bit by a zombie, you’re a “goner” but that “you can use these supplies to treat basic cuts and lacerations that you might get during a tornado or hurricane.”

John Sellick, a professor in the Jacobs School of Medicine & Biomedical Sciences at the University at Buffalo, says he thinks the guide isn’t a bad idea. “I think it’s great,” he said. “As we’ve seen with coronavirus, disaster preparedness is crucial.”
