The Fangirly Diary of a Geek Girl: DC delays, Marvel celebrates~
This week’s Entertainment Weekly cover is all about Sherlock series 3 (which will premiere on PBS’s Masterpiece this Sunday for all the American peeps). There’s also new pictures where both Benedict and Martin blue steel all over the place! Yes, blue steel is now a verb. Thanks, Zoolander!
Continuing with the TV series theme, now we know where season 4 of American Horror Story will be set in! It’s another period piece and Jessica Lange will have a German accent. Here are Ryan Murphy’s words:
It’s set in 1950. If you look historically what happened in the year 1950, there’s some more clues in that year. It’s a period piece. We try and do the opposite of what we’ve done before. Jessica Lange has already started practicing her German accent so I’m very excited!
But EW also talked about The Strain, and writer-producer Carlton Cuse promised we’ll “never look at vampires the same way again”. Also, their vampires ain’t boning anyone!
These are not sparkly brooding dudes with fangs and romantic problems. This is a really original re-imagining of vampire lore … there is sex in the show, but the vampires themselves are not having sex. They are not romantic creatures.
Holy Guacamole, Batman! The 1960s Batman TV series will be release in a complete series box set with all 120 episodes!
Johnny Depp may not be Doctor Strange after all, but you know who could be? Jon Hamm. Yep, according to This is Infamous, Don Draper will be the Sorcerer Supreme. Nothing official yet, specially considering the Doctor Strange movie hasn’t been officially named for phase 3. Well, I will have to check how Jon Hamm looks with a neat beard. At least it’s a better choice than Johnny Depp, in my opinion. I still wish for Viggo Mortensen though, even if he’s not too fond of blockbusters and The Lord of the Rings was a “once in a lifetime” deal with him.
Producer Roberto Orci talks about what’s he gonna do with The Amazing Spider-Man franchise, which includes the future The Amazing Spider-Man movies, a movie about Venom, and one about the Sinister Six. He also talks about how everything that’s wrong in Peter Parker’s life is Oscorp’s fault:
Oscorp plays an important part in how our villains get created, obviously, in the first one. So because Peter becoming Spider-Man came out of that, rather than saying, “And then this alien came from space,” or whatever, they’re doing human-hybrid, weird stuff at Oscorp.
Marvel ain’t the only ones that say nice things about their movies, Bryan Cranston compared Godzilla with Jaws… and if I had any reservations, now most are dead and gone:
They’re taking a very restrained approach to this, much like Jaws did. Steven Spielberg didn’t always show the beast [yet] the essence is present and it’s there and it’s moving [and] it’s creepy… So the tension is there, for sure.
It’s possible that the next Friday the 13th movie won’t include Jason Voorhees. Say what?!? That would be a first! Literally! We’ve always had Jason on the films! Like, what’s even gonna be about without Jason?!? Also, the movie may or may not be a found footage thing. Wonder how will all be after all is said and done.
So, they are going to make live-action Patlabor anthology series. It consists of 12 episodes that will be released in Japanese theater in seven parts. Each of the 12 episodes is going to be 48 minutes long, or so they say. The first part will be released on April 5, 2014 and the last one on January 1, 2015. Once the anthology series is complete, a full-length motion picture will be released in Spring 2015.
To end the day, here we have the Razzie nominations where Grown Ups 2, leads the list with eight nominations. I am still angry it got more money than Pacific Rim in the US. Shame on you, America! For shame! Other nominated movies include The Lone Ranger, After Earth, A Madea Christmas and Movie 43.
