The Fangirly Diary of a Geek Girl: The Crime of Grindelwald’s casting

TUESDAY

Buzzfeed had the most amazing interview/article on Star Wars‘ newcomer Kelly Marie Tran, who plays Rose Tico in  Star Wars: The Last Jedi. And she’s the most amazing nerd with inspiring parents and the owner of a good and brave heart. Gurl went to her Star Wars audition, I mean Untitled Rian Johnson Project, in her “lucky Ravenclaw tie”. I wish she were my friend.

Check out this bunch of pictures (over 70!) from Marvel’s Runaways from the upcoming three-part series premiere! Actually, the promotional stills are from the first two hours, that essentially tell the story from two points of view, the teen heroes and their villain parents.

WEDNESDAY

Another day, another Star Wars: The Last Jedi poster. Two of them in fact! One reminds me of the Inglourious Basterds one, and I’m digging Rey’s Little Red Riding Hood aesthetic! The other one reminds me of the classic ones, except it’s more red all around.

Fox has just released some weird ass teaser for Deadpool 2, where the titular character does his best Bob Ross impersonation proving the franchise’s marketing team is just the best. Deadpool 2 premieres on June 1, 2018, and its synopsis is just as weird:

After surviving a near fatal bovine attack, a disfigured cafeteria chef (Wade Wilson) struggles to fulfill his dream of becoming Mayberry’s hottest bartender while also learning to cope with his lost sense of taste. Searching to regain his spice for life, as well as a flux capacitor, Wade must battle ninjas, the yakuza, and a pack of sexually aggressive canines, as he journeys around the world to discover the importance of family, friendship, and flavor – finding a new taste for adventure and earning the coveted coffee mug title of World’s Best Lover.

Mark Millar shared a preview for a new Kick-Ass comic with new black female hero: Patience Lee, a military veteran with young children. Yep, Kick-Ass is now a legacy character! The first issue of the new Kick-Ass will hit stores February 14, 2018

I’d always wanted to do what Doctor Who or The Flash does and create a legacy character, Kick-Ass being designed for that. The idea is that he inspires other people to do what he did, just putting on a costume and cleaning up their neighborhood, and that’s what happens here.
