No, Jar-Jar very much presents the stereotype of an islander, pot-smoking, black man. The fact that the voice happened to be made up by a black man doesn't change the fact that the voice and characterization of Jar-Jar and his entire species is pretty darn stereotypical.
Darth Vader has a black voice too, that of James Earl Jones. Anyways most black people I know aren't green amphibians that live in underwater cities.

Nope. And I missed the part where Jar Jar smokes pot. Jar Jar only represents blacks to those who have an... interesting view of blacks to say the least. Don't tell me... blacks walk like Gungans, right? Those looking for racism on Lucas' part need to face the apparently inconceivable fact that the racism isn't coming from Lucas.

Jar Jar's voice is stereotypical of blacks, eh? You don't get out much, do you?

The fact that the voice happened to be made up by a black man is not something you can just sweep under the rug. But if you concede that Best made it up, I guess that takes Lucas out of the conspiracy, doesn't it? So the theory becomes Best launching a self-hating racial attack just for the hell of it? Good luck with that one. It wasn't racist when Michael Winslow did it - because Lucas wasn't involved.
How would you like Jar Jar with a crisp Oxfordian British accent? We can't have any black voice actors now as that might be perceived as racist, sorry black man, I guess your out of a job.

I thought the Avengers was the sequel to Thor, Captain America, the Incredible Hulk, and Iron Man 2.

Actually, only about 25-30% of the black people I know live in underwater cities.

Some on location shots of a battle sequence that is scheduled to shoot for 10 days according to the article.

3 pictures at the link

In regards to the action, the sequence that's being filmed involves an battle between Asgardian warriors and an army race known as Marauders. And although scheduled to be filmed on at later date, Thor himself is expected to make a grand entrance into the battle. Reportedly featuring almost 300 extras, the shoot will last 10 days.
Kat Dennings is officially back in the description of returning cast at the end of the articl. I know we had heard some back/forth on that for awhile.

I came here to see if you folks have heard the cool rumor about a certain actor playing a certain character who is slated to appear in the next Thor movie but instead you're talkng about the number of black people who live in underwater cities? This is what happens when thread go on too long without any real news..

For a race/species/civilization that can traverse galazies through their Rainbow Bridge, the Asgardians sure do love their short range weapons!

Yes, Sif returns! She will probably be the only female character that I care about in the next movie!

Those helmets being worn are just terrible for actual battle. A pole could lodge in there and twist your head off.

But Asgardians love wearing helmets that are terrible for battle. Just look at Thor and Loki.

Guns are too clumsy and random.
