The Fangirly Diary of a Geek Girl: Age of Marvel
Interstellar is all about farming! Qué?
One of the few known facts about Interstellar‘s plot is that it features a group of explorers who travel through a wormhole to seek out the far reaches of the universe, but fresh story details from the Fort Macleod Gazette reveal the motivation behind the mission. That motivation is… climate change! More specifically, a crop famine that has been brought about by the effects of climate change, with corn as the last crop to be cultivated. The scientists who head through the wormhole aren’t looking for alien life or Unobtainium – they just need a planet with a few decent fields.
At least we still have pop corn? I hope they had saved some seeds in that Svalbard Global Seed Vault! The future is worthless if we don’t have delicious potatoes!
Mads Mikkelsen keeps being a horrible tease about Hannibal’s feelings towards Will. This beautiful Norse bastard!
It’s a bromance, as Bryan Fuller says – I am attracted to Will, in the sense that I see a young man with great potential… maybe greater potential than I had when I was a kid. So therefore I’m fascinated with him and I really have true feelings for him.
He also says Hannibal totally out-dresses Sherlock!
Sherlock forgets about himself when focusing on a case, which doesn’t happen with Hannibal. His three-piece suits are almost as important as his work.
I would ask what Benedict thinks but I can’t trust the opinion of a man who thinks Martin Freeman has great style.
So, remember all the collateral damage in Man of Steel that totally destroyed Metropolis and caused zillion of dollars in damages? Zack Snyder says is all about mythology, dude!
I wanted the movie to have a mythological feeling. In ancient mythology, mass deaths are used to symbolize disasters. In other countries like Greece and Japan, myths were recounted through the generations, partly to answer unanswerable questions about death and violence. In America, we don’t have that legacy of ancient mythology. Superman (who first appeared in ‘Action Comics’ in 1938) is probably the closest we get. It’s a way of recounting the myth.
On comicbook news, here’s the preview of All-New X-Men #16 where X-Men come from the future to tell the present-day X-Men they were idiots for bringing X-Men from the past to their current timeline. Yep, a normal day in X-Men’s lives~
Chris Pratt sure has a lot of faith in Guardians of the Galaxy, and if it looks like those seconds we got and they apparently made in days, then I have faith in that movie too! Even if the choices of certain voice actors still leave me perplexed.
Yeah, I think tone is the major thing we have to accomplish, a consistent tone, going from silly and comedic to high-stakes drama and action, and everything in between. It’s really up to James, and I trust everything that he’s doing. I think we’re getting good stuff. I don’t know what to say about it other than it might be…Oh! It’s the greatest movie of the 21st century! That’s what I’ll say. It’ll be the Citizen Kane of movies other than Citizen Kane.
Remember when we reported last time that Bradley Cooper was in talks to be Rocket Raccoon. Now it’s official. He’ll totally be Rocket Raccoon. I guess the Hangover movies show he can play an asshole, but… there’s an army of voice actors out there, Marvel! Oh well.
Finally, here’s everything you need to know about Ultron. TL;DR?
Ultron is a potentially unbreakable robot with daddy issues and an ambition to wipe out humanity while building a robotic family, all of whom, for various reasons, have been driven to turn upon him.
And that’s it for the week. Before I go, Happy Birthday to Rupert Grint, Stephen Fry, Tim Burton, Chris Pine, Melissa McCarthy and Billy Boyd!
