The Fangirly Diary of a Geek Girl: Marvel films will go on and on~
Marvel films will go on forever, ’cause “you’re dealing with thousands and thousands of characters” or so says Disney chairman Bob Iger. Yup, same as with Star Wars films. Our grandnieces and grandnephews will enjoy these films too! Of course, everything depends on how long the public will want to watch it, but Disney sure has no intention of stopping!
I don’t think [the audience is] getting weary. But I think we keep raising the bar in terms of telling stories that bring them back, that excite them, that make it feel new and that is what we do for a living.
Anyway, here are some rumors on Rogue One: A Star Wars Story: we are getting Darth Vader yo! OK, we kinda knew that, but seems that his role will be much larger than we previously thought!
Henry Cavill and Ben Affleck shared their Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice Empire covers on their respective Instragrams. My opinion, Superman looks like a reanimated corpse and Batman is embracing the Rob Liefeld aesthetic. Not a good look for either!
Thankfully, Empire gave us better images from both heroes (possibly) not being friendly with each other, including Batman in a trenchcoat looking on a not very nice landscape. Doomsday still looks like sh*t though!
In Star Wars: Rogue One news of the day, the costumes and weapons went public this weekend at the Nuremberg Toy Fair, and Twitter was full of pictures of them! Well, they look cool enough and comfortable to cosplay in!
Seems our favorite Nickelodeon characters (or at least some of them!) will join forces for one epic movie! It’ll be called NickToons and, according to Deadline, it’s like Who Framed Roger Rabbit with Nickelodeon characters. Oh, so cartoons in the real world? OK, I am fine with that! If this is true, then all the vast Nickelodeon character library from the past 25 years can be exploited! And I bet Nickelodeon wants a franchise out of it.
There’s a new interview with Greg Weisman, creator of Gargoyles, a cartoon that will be forever in my heart. The interview is long and interesting, and talks about the show’s diversity, the unpopular third season, the future of Gargoyles (OMG Disney, fucking do something about this!), his current work, and of course how he wants Gargoyles to be remembered:
First and foremost, that the show was good. That we told great stories, featuring fully realized characters (even in relatively minor roles). I’m particularly proud of our two lead villains, Xanatos and Demona, who I think were unlike any other villains on television in those days. But I also adore our heroes. And I’m a sucker for romance, so the Goliath/Elisa relationship has always made me smile. I’m also proud of the series expanding universe of true history, multi-cultural mythology, fantasy, science fiction, Shakespeare, etc.
