Queer Coding Bucky Barnes: Why the MCU Should Put Up

It’s no secret to fans of the MCU, especially those involved in fandom, that Steve Rogers/Bucky Barnes is one of the most popular fan ships of recent years. In fact, a recent survey about shipping with over 17,000 participants has “Stucky” listed as the most popular current ship of any fandom.

10 Times The Potterverse Movies Strayed From Canon

Harry Potter is a beloved franchise that many millennials grew up with. As with most franchises, a lot of scenes and moments that happened in the books didn't make it onto the big screen. The Harry Potter series is large, and many of the books are over 400 pages long, so it's no wonder many things had to be cut when the Harry Potter movies were created.
