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.
