The Fangirly Diary of a Geek Girl: Justice Will Prevail!
Greetings, fellow fangirls and fanboys! This week we had proof that there can be miracles when you believe! So yes, this popular animated comicbook TV show is back for a new season! Also, new images and footage from all the movies and series we are waiting for. Here’s how the week started:
Here are some awesome clips and b-roll footage from Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, that include everything from adorable niffles and bowtruckles, to the best way to bake a strudel! So yeah, spoilers I guess?
I knew this was going to happen, but good to know it’s official: Luke Evans will play Wonder Woman’s creator, Dr. William Moulton Marston, in the upcoming biopic Professor Marston and The Wonder Women. Said wonder women will be played by Rebecca Hall and Bella Heathcote, as Marston’s wife Elizabeth, and Marston’s partner Olive respectively. Yep, they were a triad, and remained together for many years. I really hope they don’t ruin their relationship in the movie!
In more biopic casting news, Rami Malek will play Freddie Mercury in Bohemian Rhapsody, directed Bryan Singer. The role was originally for Sacha Baron Cohen and, at one time, for Ben Whishaw who stepped down for his commitment to the Bond franchise.
Here are new teasers for Vikings season 4, a show highly regarded by actual Vikings, I mean Scandinavians. Also, check creator Michael Hirst’s excelent excuses from when he makes stuff up for the show:
I deliberately chose a main character who was semi mythic and whose reputation survived down the ages and was part of the oral tradition of Viking life. You want someone like that for a lead character. You want someone who is immensely charismatic, who’s important and who other characters in the saga talk about. In a sense, I’m writing a saga about Ragnar Lodbrok, who becomes a legendary character in the show.
Well damn, Doctor Strange has a strong debut in China with $44.5 million, the third best debut for Marvel Studios behind only Avengers: Age of Ultron and Captain America: Civil War. So thanks for that, China! The movie has crossed $300 million at worldwide box office!
