Six Degrees of Marvel (the easiest game to play ever)  
Yesterday my friend and I attempted to get rush tickets to see the Park Armory's Macbeth one last time. We failed. We got rather close but it was no dice. So instead we went back to her apartment to do some work. As background noise, my friend put on Darren Aronofsky's Black Swan because this is her comfort movie. Vincent Cassel is in it and he is her celebrity husband so that's the main reason rather than her finding Natalie Portman's breakdown comforting. I had never actually seen the movie and had little interest so I was fine just working and periodically lifting my head once in awhile while the film played on loop. Consequently, I still don't really know what order in which things happened.


At some point Natalie Portman's character goes out to dinner with Mila Kunis' character where they meet two guys. One is Sebastian Stan who plays his character like the most fed up man at the bar. He's the guy who clearly has to constantly watch his friend score while he's nursing his 4th watered down drink of the evening alone. You can practically taste the resentment and defeat pouring out of him knowing that he has zero chance with Natalie Portman even as he attempts to make small talk with her and tries one compliment that she flat out laughs at because she's high on something. It's kind of hilarious. Obviously I conceptualized this scene as That Modern Day AU Where Jane Tries to Forget About Thor By Going Out and Gets Badly Hit On By Bucky.

Hahahaha! I haven't seen Black Swan either. I'm not sure if I want to. If I do now, I'm going to spend the whole movie up to this point waiting for this scene.

Nothing I saw in the brief moments I paid attention made me want to try and watch the movie in full.

In what looks like an otherwise pretty depressing film, this scene was unexpectedly funny. At least for me. Someone also keeps calling Natalie Portman during the bar scene and I double amused myself by imagining it was Thor, trying to apologize.
