Este podría ser el destino de las Gemas del Infinito en ‘Avengers 4’

0

Teorías de Avengers 4 surgen todos los días. Cada fan muestra sus argumentos y ya es cuestión del público si desea creer que la propuesta es factible. Ya hemos hablado mucho sobre los viajes en el tiempo que podrían ocurrir en la próxima película, sin embargo, la teoría que te contaremos a continuación se enfoca más en las Gemas del Infinito y cómo los héroes pueden aprovechar su poder para revertir los hechos causados por Thanos. También es importante mencionar que el contenido se relaciona con una historieta que se publicó este mismo año.

Spoilers a continuación.
Existen diversas formar de obtener y aprovechar el poder de las Gemas del Infinito

¿Qué pasaría si los superhéroes tomaran el poder de las Gemas del Infinito y las combinaran para derrotar al villano?  Un usuario de Reddit publicóuna teoría que nos acerca a ese cuestionamiento. La teoría da por hecho que los héroes lograrán tener el control de las piedras en algún momento de la película. Antes de continuar es necesario explicar algunos detalles interesantes para poder comprender mejor.

Hay diferentes formas de aprovechar el poder de las piedras: la primera es por medio de algún artefacto, tales como el cetro de Hydra o el mismo Guantelete del Infinito. Después tenemos el uso directo de la gema como lo hacía Vision. Ahora bien, también es posible cerrar un pacto con la gema para poder aprovechar todas sus posibilidades. Sólo hay dos personajes que han realizado algún tipo de pacto con las gemas:

  • Thanos: sacrificó a Gamora en Infinity War para obtener el poder de la Gema del Alma.
  • Agamotto: tuvo el poder de la Gema del Tiempo pero a cambio debía mantener el equilibrio del mismo.
Una vez que los héroes recuperen las gemas, varios de ellos tendrán un pacto con las mismas que les permitirá aprovechar todas sus posibilidades. De esta forma, en equipo podrían crear una especie de “Guantelete del Infinito humano” para revertir el chasquido de Thanos y resucitar a la mitad del universo. Para lograrlo se requiere una gran cantidad de energía, pero Capitana Marvel ayudaría a hacerlo realidad gracias a su grandes poderes. De acuerdo a la teoría esta será la repartición de las Gemas del Infinito, incluyendo los motivos por los que cada personaje la podrá poseer:
  • Gema del Poder: Hulk, por el dominio que tendrá Bruce Banner sobre su transformación.
  • Gema del Espacio: Ant-Man, por su profunda comprensión del espacio y sus posibilidades.
  • Gema del Tiempo: Capitana Marvel, por su larga desaparición y la anomalía temporal que vivirá.
  • Gema de la Mente: Thor, pues se convertiría en un Rey sabio como lo fue su padre.
  • Gema de la Realidad: Iron Man, por ser el superhéroe que no tiene poderes “mágicos”

El problema viene con el pacto de la Gema del Alma, pues es necesario realizar un sacrificio. Capitán América deberá decidir entre aniquilar al resto del universo o sacrificar a su único amigo, Tony Stark. Claro, el soldado verá en favor del universo y Iron Man sería el superhéroe que morirá en Avengers 4. Esto generaría una profunda tristeza en Steve Rodgers, quien finalmente abandonaría su papel como el Capitán América. Recordemos que ayer mismo Chris Evans confirmó que Avengers 4 será su última película interpretando al personaje.

Maroon 5 to Perform at Super Bowl Halftime

0

Reached for comment, an NFP rep tells Variety, “It’s a Super Bowl tradition to speculate about the performers for the Pepsi Halftime Show. We are continuing to work with [longtime sponsor] Pepsi on our plans but do not have any announcements to make on what will be another epic show.” A rep for Maroon 5 could not immediately be reached for comment.

While the group is stylistically more similar to recent performers like Justin Timberlake and Bruno Mars than more controversial ones such as Beyonce and Lady Gaga, Maroon 5’s most recent hit was a tag-team with Cardi B — “I Like It,” named one of the top songs of the summer by recent streaming service charts and it recently collaboration with Kendrick Lamar on the song “Don’t Wanna Know,” so some left-field guest appearances on Super Bowl Sunday are certainly a possibility.

Creative Arts Emmys: Apple Brings Home First Win for ‘Carpool Karaoke’

0

Carpool Karaoke was one of Apple’s first forays into original programming. The tech giant also debuted the reality series Planet of the Apps in summer 2017. Since these shows were ordered, Apple has doubled down on original content, hiring Sony TV veterans Zack Van Amburg and Jamie Erlicht to oversee worldwide video programming. They have quickly assembled a slate of high-profile, premium TV projects including anthology series Amazing Stories and a Reese Witherspoon-Jennifer Aniston morning television drama.

Carpool Karaoke remains separate from Van Amburg and Erlicht’s television efforts. Because of its music focus, it is seen as additive to the streaming music library that Apple has amassed for its $10-per-month Apple Music streaming service. The series was renewed for a second season in February. Meanwhile, Carpool Karaoke is a regular feature on The Late Late Show, with recent appearances by Ariana Grande and Shawn Mendes.

Apple isn’t a complete stranger to the Emmys. The Tim Cook-led company has received several technical awards over the years and also took home a trophy for commercial of the year in 2014 for its “Misunderstood” spot. But this is the first time that Apple is being recognized for original programming.

The Sunday night win completed a trifecta for Corden, who also took home two Emmys on the first night of the Creative Arts Emmys. His Snapchat series James Corden’s Next James Corden scored wins on Saturday night for outstanding actor in a shortform comedy or drama and outstanding shortform comedy or drama series. The British actor and comedian also was nominated for outstanding variety special (pre-recorded) for the Carpool Karaoke Primetime Special and outstanding variety special (live) for his work hosting The Grammys. He also will vie for the outstanding variety talk series honor at the Primetime Emmys alongside fellow nominees Full Frontal With Samantha Bee, Jimmy Kimmel Live!, Last Week Tonight With John Oliver, The Daily Show with Trevor Noah and The Late Show With Stephen Colbert.

Uno de los guionistas de ‘Sesame Street’ asegura que Bert y Ernie eran una pareja homosexual

0

Desde hace unos años corrió el rumor de que Bert y Ernie, conocidos en América Latina como Beto y Enrique, eran más que compañeros. Que tenían una relación, vaya. Y aunque eso había sido solo eso, simples habladurías entre los fans, ahora la verdad ha quedado al descubierto gracias a el exescritor de Plaza Sésamo, Mark Saltzman, quien confirmó que ambos personajes eran más que amigos.. 

En una entrevista para el sitio web de estilo de vida LGBTQ+, Queerty, Saltzman destapó información que, de haberlo hecho en su momento, quizá hubiera provocado una gran polémica alrededor del programa infantil.

“Recuerdo una vez que en una columna de The San Francisco Chronicle, un niño volteó con su mamá y le preguntó, ‘¿Beto y Enrique son amantes?’ Y eso, viniendo de un niño de preescolar, fue divertido. Así que cuando escribía de Beto y Enrique, cuando pensaba en ellos, eran pareja. No tenía otra forma de contextualizarlos“, comentó.

Mark Saltzman confesó que la relación de Beto y Enrique estaba inspirada en su propia relación con su ex pareja Arnold Glassman, con quien estuvo más de 20 años, hasta que él falleció en 2003.

“Yo era más como Enrique, el bromista y caótico. Mientras que Arnold, como editor de cine, era ordenado. Llevé esa dinámica a los personajes”, dijo.

Beto y Enrique son fuertes íconos de la cultura pop, tanto así que llegaron a ser la portada de The New Yorker en julio de 2013… cuando el rumor sobre su homosexualidad se desató, ya que la imagen mostraba a los personajes acurrucados frente al televisor, mientras esperaban la decisión del Tribunal Supremo de Estados Unidos a favor de los matrimonios homosexuales.

Beto-enrique-plaza-sesamo-gays-confirmado

Luego de este revuelo, los fans lanzaron una petición a través de la plataforma change.org, en donde pedían que la relación de Beto y Enrique llegara hasta su matrimonio en pantalla. Sin embargo, los productores del programa pronto emitieron un comunicado en donde explicaban que, al ser marionetas, ninguno de los personajes tenía orientación sexual, aún si actuaban como humanos.

Pero la postura de Plaza Sésamo es inamovible

Después de estas declaraciones, los amos y señores de las marionetas educativas lanzaron un statement, en el que reafirman su postura, diciendo que “Beto y Enrique son mejores amigos, y que como son marionetas, no pueden tener orientación sexual“, lo que podría resultar un poco incogruente para algunos, ya que… ¿y la historia de la Rana René y Peggy, qué onda? Ellos tienen una CLARA orientación sexual, y también son marionetas.

These Are Apple’s New iPhones

0

Apple today in California officially announced the “iPhone Xs” and “iPhone Xs Max,” the latest iPhone models coming this year. The company confirmed that both models will come in Space Gray, Silver, and Gold color options, with Gold being the new addition to the iPhone Xs lineup this year.

The iPhone Xs models have the same design as the iPhone X from 2017, with an edge-to-edge OLED display, greatly reduced bezels, and a “notch” that houses the front-facing TrueDepth Camera system. The iPhone Xs is the direct iPhone X successor and measures in at 5.8 inches, while the XS Max is Apple’s biggest iPhone yet at 6.5 inches.

Apple says that the Xs lineup has the most advanced iPhone features ever seen, thanks to a new A12 Bionic chip, which is the industry’s first 7-nanometer chip. A12 Bionic includes a next-generation Neural Engine, powering a new and improved Face ID on the iPhone Xs and Xs Max, making the biometric security feature faster than iPhone X.

The new iPhones have the highest pixel density of any Apple device, coming in 5.8-inch and 6.5-inch sizes. The Super Retina displays have a custom OLED design and support Dolby Vision and HDR10, meaning that you can watch 4K content on the devices. On iPhone Xs Max, you’ll be able to see over 3 million pixels in videos, movies, and games.

As Apple points out, the iPhone Xs Max is the largest display it has ever built in an iPhone, but the overall size of the device is similar to the iPhone 8 Plus. The screen includes the most durable glass ever in a smartphone with improved scratch resistance, the band around the side retains the iPhone X’s stainless steel finish, and the back is made out of glass as well to enable wireless charging.

Both models are rated to IP68 water resistance for up to 2 meters for 30 minutes of submergence, meaning that the devices are protected against everyday spills and dips.

In terms of the processor, Apple’s A12 Bionic features a six-core fusion architecture with two performance cores and four efficiency cores, as well as a four-core GPU, video encoder, Signal Processor, and more. All of this is as much as 50 percent faster and more efficient than last year’s iPhone X, enabling new experiences in games, photography, video editing, and more.

Battery life is 30 minutes longer than the iPhone X on the iPhone Xs, while the Xs Max offers battery life that lasts an hour and a half longer than iPhone X.

The camera on the iPhone Xs includes advanced depth segmentation, Smart HDR, advanced bokeh quality in Portrait mode photos, and dynamic depth of field that you can adjust after you take a photo. The 12-megapixel dual camera system features dual optical image stabilization with 2x optical zoom, while a new sensor is twice as fast.

In videos, the Xs family features larger pixels and a faster sensor to enable improved low-light performance and video stabilization. With the four built-in mics, you can also record stereo sound to get the most out of video recordings.

The iPhone Xs and iPhone Xs Max will be available in 64GB, 256GB, and 512GB storage capacities, and in Space Gray, Silver, and Gold. The iPhone Xs will start at $999 in 64GB, while the iPhone Xs Max will start at $1,099 in 64GB. You’ll be able to pre-order the smartphones on Friday, September 14, ahead of launch on Friday, September 21 in more than 30 countries and territories.
