➝ Iris + caring about/defending/losing her shit over Barry.
ok. so. this gifset. here’s what i want to say about this gifset and why i love it so fucking much.
i mean, right off the bat it shows how much iris cares about barry. she cares so much about him! and that’s what their friendship is based on, mutual care. her care for him tends to be manifested in 2 ways: by asking after his well being and by protecting him. and it’s the protecting part that really gets me. when they were kids she lied to her dad about him going to the prison; when barry fell into the coma she visited him all the time and consented along with her dad to allow wells and the star lab team to look after him; and she steps in between him and joe when he’s telling barry that what he believes is impossible and crazy and he needs to just stop being childish and face up to reality.
and that’s the moment i really want to focus on. cause like so far i’ve talked about iris and belief and how she represents the show’s whole thing about believing in the impossible? but the thing is, she doesn’t just represent it. she’s not just like a symbol of it. she actively defends it!
when she steps between barry and joe and tells her dad—the same dad to whom she capitulated and didn’t become a police officer, the same dad she loves and respects so much—when she puts out her hand and says “that’s enough!” she’s protecting barry, but she’s also protecting the belief that barry (and she!) have in the impossible. and that is so. awesome. like i don’t even have the words to articulate what it is i’m trying to get at right now, and this is just an approximation, but i hope it at least gets the shading right.
like at the end of episode 2 we get joe telling barry that they can work on his dad’s case together, work to find the real culprit. but we also get iris asking barry, “what if what you saw was real? what if the impossible is real?” (this is an approximation of what she said, sorry!) and what i see there is iris basically saying that she’s gathering information that could support barry’s belief that some guy in a ball of lightening murdered his mother. and so like there is merit to iris not yet knowing about the flash or that barry is the flash beyond her exclusion and how the men in her life trying to protect her keep knowledge from her—mainly that right now she’s the only one who is really doing the whole believing thing, like believing without seeing (the people the flash helps can’t see him!). and i think that the juxtaposition of her already having belief and going out to find information/evidence to support that belief versus her father’s confrontation with his disbelief and like dealing with the fallout of something that radically changes his world could be really compelling. i mean, idk if the show’s gonna do that, but the potential is there.
also, this gifset shows iris actively loving barry! like it shows how she’s not just the girl that he’s in love with, but that she is someone who loves him, even though that love isn’t romantic right now. it like disrupts the usual narrative of boy-loves-girl-from-afar where the woman is like this ethereal being he barely ever interacts with. and i think it works against how those stories can put the loved woman on a pedestal. she’s not just acted upon—she loves too.
ANYway, iris west continues to be fucking awesome and her story is just SO MUCH and i cannot get enough of her and i will write about her until my dying day the end.
Can we talk about how Diana literally picks Barry up and carries him in celebration?
Wonder Woman don’t care. Wonder Woman do what she want. She don’t give no shit.
i like how barry gives no shits. he just goes with it, even throws his arm around her. like, if he’s just been waiting for an exceptionally large badass woman to pick him up bridal style, and carry him.
I’d imagine it’s an honor to be carried by Wonder Woman.
is it too much to ask for this to happen in the JL movie?
That’s A Wrap For Tao Okamoto On Batman v.Superman!
We aren’t sure earlier what was going on when we posted Larry Fong’s regram of Zack Snyder’s post. “#Repost from @cruelfilms - Thank you @taookamoto Next season everyone will be wearing their Zack Snyder”
Now @taookamoto has posted this @ClayEnos original and confirmed that she has completed filming. “I know I’m very skinny, but see? I’m strong!! #piggyback #ZackSnyder And it was a wrap for me today!! Thank you all for an amazing experience!
We can’t wait to see your role revealed Tao!
I did go to school for Marine Biology, but the cool thing is… the greatest thing for me is that Polynesians, our gods, Kahoali, Maui, all these water gods, so it’s really cool and a honor to be playing a [water] character. And there’s not too many brown superheroes, so I’m really looking forward to representing the Polynesians, the natives.
My family are some of the greatest water men on earth. I’m not, but I’m going to go train with them. But it’s really an honor just being a Polynesian. And water is the most important thing in this world and we all know it. It’s cool be a part of DC’s universe.
“The movie is about…as he struggles to find an identity in the modern world, his old life is slipping away - is hanging on by a thread. Peggy doesn’t remember him… and she’ll be dead soon. She’s the last remnant of his past. And Sam happens to find his way into his life, so now he’s slowly meeting a new friend, he’s gaining a trust with Widow…so the movie is about a journey for him as he finds new elements in the modern world to emotionally attach himself to. The cruel twist is that, the Winter Soldier shows up…and it’s like the past punching him in the face.” — Joe Russo [x]
