A Deadpool fan has created this petition to ask for Ryan Reynolds to host Saturday Night Live in character as Deadpool. His reasoning is simple, according to him (and apparently the 5,000+ who have already signed) if Deadpool hosted SNL, it would be awesome:

How would this not be hilarious having Deadpool in sketches, breaking the 4th wall, and inserting some of his brand of humor (obviously toned down a bit for network television)!?!?! I have not watched a full episode of SNL in years because I just haven't been able to stomach an entire episode, but having Deadpool host, star, and be all over the episode would get the DVR set so I can watch it again and again!!! Not to mention, depending on the musical guest, how awesome would it be to have some Deadpool interpretive dancing while the musical guest was playing? There's unlimited possibilities!!!

Many watchers aren't happy with the loss of Sandor Clegane AKA The Hound after last season's loss against Brienne of Tarth. While it never exactly shows his death, the character has remained absent from the aired five episodes of this fifth season. 

So, those passionate few took their voices to the government's petition website Change.org, in hopes to get the attention of HBO, George R.R. Martin or anyone who could affect the shows writing. They want The Hound back.

"The fate of this character has been left up for debate in both the book series (A Song of Ice and Fire) as well as the television show (Game of Thrones), although many fans strongly believe that he still lives. As the fans, we believe that it would be an incredibly interesting story arc if he were to make a return," the petition reads. "While we understand that with so many characters, it can at times be difficult to fit another storyline in, we feel that the return of Sandor would be favorable to not only the story, but to the already impressive ratings and popularity as well."

If you have a passionate opinion about the fate of Sandor and his burnt body dashed against the rocks, maybe sign the petition and maybe your voice will be heard.

At least 33,000 people don't want to see a sea of whitewashing in Dreamworks' upcoming adaptation of Ghost in the Shell.  Following news that Scarlett Johansson will star in the film, concerned citizen Julie Rodriguez penned a petition to Dreamworks to cast Asian actors in the film.  She explains,

Fans of the iconic 1995 animated Japanese sci-fi film Ghost in the Shell have been anticipating a live-action remake for years -- but now, instead of casting an Asian actress, Dreamworks has selected Scarlett Johansson for the lead role! The film revolves around Major Motoko Kusanagi, a member of a futuristic security force tasked with tracking a mysterious hacker.

The original film is set in Japan, and the major cast members are Japanese. So why would the American remake star a white actress? The industry is already unfriendly to Asian actors without roles in major films being changed to exclude them. One recent survey found that in 2013, Asian characters made up only 4.4% of speaking roles in top-grossing Hollywood films.

Dreamworks could be using this film to help provide opportunities for Asian-American actors in a market with few opportunities for them to shine -- please sign the petition asking them to reconsider casting Scarlett Johansson in Ghost in the Shell and select actors who are truer to the cast of the original film!


At the time of this post, the petition has 33,477 of the 34,000 signatures it hopes to reach.  If you're interested, check it out here

Fans of The Walking Dead started a petition on change.org to resurrect Beth Grimes, who died in the mid season finale. Their complaint:

Her death was far too soon and the writers threw away the potential of a perfectly good character. Her story wasn't over. Emily Kinney and her character don't deserve this. There was so much more to be done with her character and they chose to kill her in a disgusting, unsatifying death that caused more anger and dissapointment than shock and mourning. Beth was a symbol of hope that a lot of women could relate to and see themselves in (especially self-harmers who saw her as someone who overcame their suicidal/depressive feelings). By sloppily killing her it just shows that she was used to further a man's (Daryl's) storyline.
They argue that by killing Beth they created yet another Woman in a Refrigerator, it seems Robert Kirkman agrees.
