The Fangirly Diary of a Geek Girl: This star of England, Glamour made his prize


The morning brought me something so epic I couldn’t deal… my inner Shakespeare fangirl flailed like Kermit the Frog. So check this video and tell me how many flawless Thespian bastards can you name?

And then Tom Hiddleston became the Man of the Year! At least according to Glamour Magazine… and I made a noise only dogs could hear.

Yes, it was an embarrassing day.


It started more subdued, with Simon Pegg assuring us The Cumberlord won’t be Khan! I hope it is the truth and it will lay to rest all those terrible whitewashing rumors about Star Trek 2.

But life wasn’t about to leave me to my dignity, for that day the trailer for Les Miserables went online.

F*ck, I got goosebumps, and it’s the musical and it’s the first time there’s a movie about the musical and I want it in my life now.

Anyway, back to Comic-related geeking, Sir Ben Kingsley will actually be The Mandarin in Iron Man 3. And there’s something else in the article, there are production pictures of something that looks like the Iron Patriot armor. I said “looks like” because the Iron Patriot from comics may have the same patriotic theme, but its painting is different.

That maybe because the Iron Patriot should be Norman Osbourne, whom you may know as the Green Goblin of Spider-Man fame, and since Spider-Man rights belong to Sony… Some people say it’s James Badge Dale in the Iron Patriot armor, but the actor was supposed to play Eric Savin in the movie, a character who becomes the freelance soldier cyborg Coldblood in the comics. What’s going on? We’ll see, Marvel, we’ll see.

    Okay… GDI!

    As a matter of fact, two young men kissing is one of my favourite things (along with whiskers on kittens and brown paper packages tied up with string)!!!

    And 4D… THE HELL EVEN IS THAT?!?!?!?! Does the film come out and give you a hug and tuck you in??? I dont’ even know how to feel about that!

    And all I can say is I HATE THAT I CAN’T SEE THE SPICE GIRLS MUSICAL!!! SOOOOO NOT FAIR. This isn’t my inner 13-year-old. This is my everyday existence as I live and breathe and work on people’s taxes! Ugh… why do I live in America where I can’t do anything? Life… not amazing!

    Now on to not so squee-like flailing… I can’t say I’m stoked about Les Mis. I actually think if you saw Phantom first, Les Mis just doesn’t stack up. I mean, I saw Phantom in New York three years before I saw Les Mis in London and not even the European epicness could make me like that musical. *sigh* Sorry to say this isn’t very exciting for me.

    But everything else… BEYOND AMAZING!

      @Camiele, lol, it’s just that since I’m from Peru, I’ve never seen a grand-scale musical live, so Phantom I only saw dvds or online and while it was awesome, it was never as awesome as the rendition I’ve seen of Les Miserables XD Plus, I loved Victor Hugo’s book more than Gaston Leroux’s XD

      • Camiele says:

        @mirella, Granted. Hugo’s book is unreal. One of my favourites, actually. But, it makes sense of you’ve only seen them on DVD. I get where you’re coming from. But still… 4D WHAT IS THAT?!?!?!?!

        • mirella says:

          @Camiele, 4D is when the seats of the theater move, there’s breeze or hot, or smells… anything to add to the “cinematic” experience… which a scary movie, it will be interesting… let’s see if some people don’t pee their pants XD

    @mirella, …O.o Oh. My. SHIT!!!!! That’s quite possibly the most intense thing I’ve ever heard in my life. You just blasted my mind.
