The Fangirly Diary of a Geek Girl: Be our guest!
Here’s a new clip from Moana, featuring Gramma Tala, who seems like an awesome lady with the right amount of crazy~
Johnny Depp will star in the sequel in the Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them sequel. And there’s this rumor that he could be playing Gellert Grindelwald… and I do not want! Come on! The Harry Potter franchise has been quite careful about casting actors that mostly watch the origin of the characters, with British actors for the Harry Potter series, and American ones for Fantastic Beasts expect for Newt Scamander himself with Eddie Redmayne. Gellert Grindelwald is English-Bulgarian, something Depp is not. Also, dude looks nothing like either Jamie Campbell Bower or Michael Byrne.
In Marvel news, Aaron Taylor-Johnson would return as Quicksilver if he was asked to. I mean, sure, Feige said “Quiksilver is DEAD. 100%, he’s not coming back any time soon, there are no plans”, but we have Infinity Gems dammit! I’m sure either the Time Stone or the Reality Stone (or both!) could help!
Anyway, Feige does have plans of making the MCU more inclusive. Like “it’s important that we don’t feel like a completely white, European cast.” And this will be totally reflected in Spider-Man: Homecoming, where Peter Parker is no longer attending a lily-white high school in goddamn Queens!
Our filmmaker came in and had pictures of real high schools, and they are as diverse as you could imagine. That was something that was important to us, to set it apart from other Spidey films that have been made — to carve that niche — and to have it represent the world today.
Here’s the trailer for Fuller House season 2, where I didn’t know Kimmy had a younger brother.
Burberry is being over-the-top with their Christmas ad of this year with the special short film celebrating the life of its founder, The Tale of Thomas Burberry. Directed by Academy Award-winner Asif Kapadia and starring Domhnall Gleeson, Sienna Miller, Dominic West and Lily James, it’s a story inspired by the life and discoveries of their founder, reimagining key events that have shaped Burberry’s history. Reimagining being the key word, since as lovely as this ad/short is, there are glaring historical innacuracies. Burberry shouldn’t be as young as Domhnall currently during both the First World War and Ernest Shackleton’s expedition to the Antarctic in 1914! Burberry died in 1926 at 90 years old!
