Scarlett Johansson may not be coming to Wilmington for ‘Iron Man 3’

Wednesday, April 25th, 2012

HOLLYWOOD, CA (THE HUFFINGTONPOST.COM) — Scarlett Johansson’s “Iron Man” dalliance appears to be over. For now.

The actress — who plays Black Widow in the Marvel universe and has a sizable role in “Marvel’s The Avengers” — co-starred in “Iron Man 2,” but likely won’t appear in “Iron Man 3.”

According to the site ScreenRant, Johansson began a recent interview by saying she wouldn’t have time to return for the next Marvel blockbuster. During the video-taped portion of the chat, however, Johansson did allow that a Black Widow movie would be something she’d be very keen on doing.

As election day approaches, both sides debate Amendment 1

Wednesday, April 25th, 2012

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY)– The most heated race this primary season may not be among any candidates at all, but between two ideals, on the subject of same sex marriage.

From now until election day on May 8th, we’ll be offering you profiles of many of the candidates you’ll see on your ballot. We begin though with Amendment One, a measure that would define marriage in the state constitution as between one woman and one man, and banning any other type of domestic union.

“Marriage was put in place by our creator. God is the one that defined marriage. Our Savior in the gospel of Matthew said for this cause shall a man leave his father and mother and shall be joined unto his wife,” said Berean Baptist Church pastor, Ron Bailey.

“It’s just one of those doors that could be open that could cause so many problems for so many people, not just gay and lesbian families, said Jennifer Scott, with Wilmington Pride.

Although gay marriage is already illegal in the state, if passed, the amendment would also make it illegal in the state constitution, which would make it even more difficult to reverse.

The amendment would ban both gay marriage and civil unions. Even if you vote no, it would not legalize gay marriage.

For those who plan to vote against it, they say its not just a gay rights issue.

“Even unmarried straight couples, engaged couples, single parents who may have established previously accepted child custody agreements with their long term straight partner it affects those, impacts those, takes away those rights that have previously been established,” said Scott.

Dr. Baity is from Winston-Salem. He has traveled across North Carolina holding rallies and meeting with other pastors to share his message of approving the amendment.

“Marriage is a commandment of God, not of the legislature, not of the judiciary, not of the people,” said Baity. “It is a commandment of God and we believe that God will bless the people that will stick by, stand by and uphold his eternal word.”

Both sides are confident that they are supporting what’s best for the state and that they will prevail come May 8th.
