The Fangirly Diary of a Geek Girl: A million voices cried out in joy!
Check out these new pictures from Thor: Ragnarok! Here we have Loki, Bruce Banner and, of course, the titular character! Here’s the last two because we already shared a Loki picture~
On the DC side of things, Ben Affleck promised us that we are getting “a much more traditional Batman” in Justice League. You know, less of a violent asshole, and more of a sorta grumpy leader who actually helps people.
BvS departed a little bit from the traditional Batman. He started out with all this rage directed at Superman, because of his coworkers who had died in the fight Superman had with Zod. He was holding on to a lot of anger, in a little bit of an irrational way. Whereas this is a much more traditional Batman. He’s heroic. He does things in his own way, but he wants to save people, help people.
After all the drama of Daniel Craig preferring to slash his wrist than play Bond again, the actor himself finally confirmed that yes, he will be returning to the role for a fifth time. And this time it might actually be the last time! In an interview with Stephen Colbert he said that “I think this is it. I just want to go out on a high note and I can’t wait”.
Check this trailer (in Japanese only, sorry) for the Netflix animated Godzilla movie. It will be in Netflix after its Japanese theatrical run later this year.
The animated movie takes the franchise into uncharted territory — a harsh world of the future in which Godzilla has dominated the Earth for the past 20,000 years, and a fateful final confrontation with mankind looms. Prepare for the earth-shattering roar of a brand new GODZILLA, unlike anything heard or seen before.
Stan Lee suffered a terrible loss recently due to the loss of his wife Joan, but he soldiers one and continues making appearance at events and giving interviews. In a most recent one, he named the Silver Surfer as the Marvel character he’d most like to see receive their own film. Well, considering the poor guy only appeared in the same movie where Galactus was a damn space cloud, I get it. He also mentioned his favourite MCU cameo, and though it seems every cameo is his favourite cameo, this one has a decent reason!
My favorite is when I’m drinking with Thor in the second Avengers movie. When I was with him at the bar and he was drinking a strong drink from Asgard. […] The reason that one is my favorite of the ones I’ve done is that it’s the one cameo I’ve done that has two scenes. I figure that’s making me more of an actor. Pretty soon I’ll have three scenes then I’ll have four, and before you know it, I’ll be starring in a movie.
Ron Howard shared on his Twitter a teaser for the Han Solo Star Wars spin-off. As you can see by that helmet, the kind worn by soldiers on the Death Star, the influence of the Empire won’t be absent in the film!
SFX Magazine gave us a cool Star Trek: Discovery cover as well as some interesting cast interviews! Lead actress Sonequa Martin-Green talked about how it’s the utopia “where acculturation happens without assimilation”. Co-star Mary Wiseman added “it’s about the merging of cultures without colonialism”. Doug Jones described his character Saru as “very upwardly mobile with something to prove” as the first Kelpien to attend Starfleet Academy. Anthony Rapp assured us that while there’s “level of grit and the intense storylines”, there’s also “some nice doses of humour”.
Here’s the trailer for Channel Zero: No-End House, the anthology show’s second season after the succesful Channel Zero: Candle Cove. Yep, this new season is also based on a Creepypasta! It premieres on September 20 on SYFY.
Inspired by Brian Russell’s Creepypasta tale, Channel Zero: No-End House tells the story of a young woman named Margot Sleator, played by Amy Forsyth, who visits the No-End House, a bizarre house of horrors that consists of a series of increasingly disturbing rooms.
