The Fangirly Diary of a Geek Girl: I want to believe!


Apparently, Anthony Hopkins is one of us and wrote fan mail to Bryan Cranston after binge-watching Breaking Bad in two weeks~

Thank you. That kind of work/artistry is rare, and when, once in a while, it occurs, as in this epic work, it restores confidence.

Doctor Who‘s 50th Anniversary Special is getting close and BBC decides to grease up the marketing machine. Here are some promo pictures!


Is this the real life or is this fantasy? Rumor has it that Marvel is “quietly putting together a package of four drama series and a miniseries — a total of some 60 episodes — that would be taken out to the VOD and cable space, with Netflix, Amazon and WGN America rumored as potential candidates”. Yep, I am dying here. We don’t know if the rumor Agent Carter TV series is part of this package. Actually, we know nothing and yet! Can we get Heroes for Hire? Pretty please? Or The Runaways? Or, or a mini-series with Kid Loki and then Young Avengers? Of course that would depend on Loki’s fate in Thor: The Dark World but still!

Talking about comic to TV series, Guillermo del Toro said that the potential John Constantine TV show can live in harmony with his Justice League Dark movie. Well, that Del Toro proyect is moving slowly anyway. I guess they need to chose a John Constantine that works both for TV and film?

We talked about it at DC and Warners, and I feel confident that the two properties can exist at the same time. I think that DC is trying to create a great universe of characters, and expand it and make it clear to the audience that it’s a landscape of characters, and not just one that’s dependent on one or two characters.

So, apparently there was a Calvin & Hobbes documentary and nobody told me. Dear Mr Watterson was funded via KickStarter and here’s the official trailer:

Talking about crowd funded films, here’s what Benedict Cumberbatch had to say about the short film Little Favour~

The title soon became an ironic contrast to the huge favours that were being done in every department and the hours being put in. But none of that goodwill would’ve been possible to harness without the incredible response we had from the public. We set the record for the fastest and highest funded film in UK crowd funding history.

Japanese musician Miyavi has been cast in Angelina Jolie’s latest film Unbroken, based on a book portraying the life story of American Olympian and war hero Louis Zamperini. Miyavi will play the antagonist Mutsushiro Watanabe, a World War II POW camp guard. I had no idea he could act.

Yay! Tina Fey and Amy Poehler will host the Golden Globes for the next two years! Of course they will. If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it, right?!

Yeah, that Avatar at Disney’s Animal Kingdom thing? Here’s the video with James Cameron talking about it and showing some more of the concept. I want it. I wanna go to that Billie Jean world!

    Does this mean I’m gonna have to watch 5 Wizard of Oz shows and not get messed up in the head? xD

    And no… Miyavi’s acting talent is up for debate, but the closest he’s gotten to was voicing one of the voices of Lock, Shock and Barrel in The Nightmare Before Xmas Japanese dub. He did announce this one as his “debut” so at least he knows he’ll work it out and not sloth it off.

    About Noah……. of course, it’s got THAT theme and it cost that much money. The studio, at least, is going to want to have the success of Gravity on that one.

    And Khan will always not be a terrorist.
