▸ With the release of ‘The Shape Of Water’, it seems prudent to discuss casting, and how actors without a disability are cast in roles that require them to portray one. Sally Hawkins’ Eliza is mute, relying on American Sign Language to communicate with those around her, and this casting decision has been met with criticism from the deaf community, with notable deaf celebrities like Nyle DiMarco (winner of America’s Next Top Model) talking about how the signs she uses, while correct, aren’t how someone who natively signs would use the language. With technology the way it is and society almost as progressive as we’d like it to be, do we have any excuses to not allow differently abled actors to play their own disability or be cast more often?
▸ Marvel’s next highly-anticipated movie, 'Black Panther', which is due to hit Australian movie theatres on February 15, has already broken an impressive record: it is now the number one pre-sale movie in the history of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, toppling the previous record holder, ‘Captain America: Civil War’, which debuted the character. To say Marvel fans are excited for 'Black Panther' is an understatement - but why are ticket sales so high on this instalment?
