Link Tank: The Legacy of Betty White

Honoring the fantastic career of Betty White, why The Matrix series might be over, updates on the next Black Panther, and more in Link Tank!

The Golden Girls icon Betty White passed away this past weekend. Let’s honor her legacy by going through some of her career highlights.

“Betty White, the vivacious comic actress who had the longest television career in the history of the medium, has died. TMZ first reported her death, which law enforcement authorities confirmed. She was 99. White is best known for her roles in two of TV’s best sitcom ensembles: The Mary Tyler Moore Show and The Golden Girls. But she also appeared in 30 films, starred in seven decades’ worth of sitcoms, hosted a talk show, was a favorite on the game show circuit, and was one of the first female television producers.”

The Hawkeye post-credits scene wasn’t a tease for a dozen future MCU projects but a fun look back on the franchise through a musical lens.

Hawkeye’s post-credits scene was unlike anything we’ve seen before. While Marvel normally teases the future, their latest series ended with a victory lap in a full encore performance of in-universe Broadway sensation Rogers: The Musical’s ‘Save the City.’ Many fans weren’t pleased with this prime spot looking backward instead of forward, but the scene paradoxically did something new. After 20-odd teasers and reveals, the most surprising choice was not revealing anything at all. It also allowed the fabulous music and lyrics of Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman to take center stage.”

Director Lana Wachowski had a very clear vision in her head for this new installment, but it doesn’t sound like she has plans for another film in the series. ‘Who sent that question in?’ Wachowski joked when the Associated Press asked if there was a new trilogy in the offing. Finally, she laughed out a straight: ‘No.'”
