The Fangirly Diary of a Geek Girl: Flaunt your optimism!


Two awesome events today! First, the Jameson Empire Awards where Hiddles presented an award for Helen Mirren (in a totally new suit from yesterday, somebody’s been shopping!), Martin Freeman won Best Actor and Sir Ian McKellen received the award for The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey as Best Sci-fi/Fantasy movie. Also, there was some speculations of Tom in The Avengers 2, but he truly knows nothing. One good thing to come out of this event was this LOL-worthy macro:


The other geeky event was the preview of The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug that I sorta commented live on my facebook fanpage (I mostly captured some pictures), and damn the movie looks so good! And the cast was lovely and Stephen Colbert was such a Tolkien geek (but we knew that already). This left me uncontrollably excited and now I can’t wait until December. I really really can’t. Smart move, Peter Jackson!

Going back to Hiddles for a bit, there was this blink-and-you-miss-it moment where his agency’s profile said that he was going to be  The Muppets… Again! Say what? Indeed! He was credited as The Great Escapo, which totally looks like a magician’s name. It went around the web, even Wikipedia, and then it was deleted. Did someone spill the beans too early? Whatever, I hope it is true! Even if it’s only for a repeat of this cuteness:

Oh yeah, we also got a couple of new images from Star Trek Into Darkness~ They also had a Earth Hour event, which while totally awesome… doesn’t kinda defeat the purporse of Earth Hour?


Let’s start the day with The Wolverine. We have posters… and one is horrible, so I’m posting only the good one here~


We also get images with some commentary on said images, that includes this gem by Hugh Jackman on Wolverine’s psyche:

He realizes everyone he loves dies, and his whole life is full of pain. So it’s better that he just escapes. He can’t die really. He just wants to get away from everything.

Tom Hiddleston keeps talking about his Loki feels:

Loki is someone, as a character – to my surprise, people really enjoy him and they enjoy his complication and enjoy his arrogance and his vanity and his villainy. Because of the first two films, Thor and The Avengers, in Thor: The Dark World, I’ve been able to take Loki in new directions, building on that larger platform for him to stand on.

We also get many more images of his trip with UNICEF UK to Guinea, from the website of photographer Harry Borden.

Tony Stark’s armor gets compared with a car by Adi Granov (comicbook artist and Marvel Studios consultant). It totally makes sense:

It’s like a car manufacturer. Even if the previous model is absolutely fine, people get a bit bored with it so you have to add new features and the technology also moves on.

Also a couple of new Iron Man 3 TV spots with lots of delicious spoilers~

From Game of Thrones we have another promo (with dragons!) and a featurette~

Here’s the first look at Zombieland TV show:


And while it doesn’t look that impressive, I’ll give it shot. Creator Paul Wernick does say that Zombieland will strive to break the rules—action, adventure, thrills, chills and laughs and all packed into a half hour format.”

  1. Good to hear positive reviews about Pacific Rim.

    If it’s true, I think Hiddleston would fit in well in a Muppet movie.

    I don’t watch the show, but I saw that Once Upon a Time is getting a Wonderland spinoff, and that actor Michael Socha (This is England tv, Being Human UK) is part of the cast.

    I wonder what will be added to the Iron Man 3 China version.

      @Diandra Rodriguez, I really really want Hiddles in the Muppet sequel. I truly do!
      Also, yes! Good thing there’s so much piracy in China that I may actually manage to watch this Iron Man 3 version online~

      @Diandra Rodriguez, I heard it’s only added scenes with Fan Bingbing. She is a big name in China, after all. It sounds iffy, especially on WHY they decided not to apply for co-production status.
