The Fangirly Diary of a Geek Girl: The World is full of Marvels


1883 Magazine has been holding out on us.

1883 are launching the Tom Hiddleston app. 47 pages of Tom Hiddleston exclusives. Including the editorial and interview from issue 4, never seen before images, backstage photos, 4 videos, as well as 3 new covers.

It’s Hiddlesmas, you all! That photo session is both fun and sexy and a total fashion crime. And the nice people of the internet already uploaded all the pics~

More Thor: The Dark World pics, now Chris Hemsworth was seen in Bourne Woods fighting what looks like Dark Elves, but I am not sure. We also see his stunt double. Yay, two Thors!

Now John Cho talks about Star Trek Into Darkness, and his experience of getting back together with his cast mates:

We immediately started up with the same jokes that we run into ground. But that’s the kind of experience that’s so unique. The people you go on that journey with, you’re bonded with forever.

Aww~ That’s what I love with the cast in franchises! They become BFFs!

Also, Psy taught Britney Spears his moves on Ellen’s show:

Dress classy and dance cheesy, you all!


And Marvel stuff keeps coming! Here’s an interview with Chris Evans about his role as Captain America in Marvel movies past and future.

I go into every movie thinking its going to be the worst thing in the world. You hope its going to be great but the fact is, if it was easier to do, there would be more good movies.

Amen to that, dude.

Joss Whedon also talked about his involvement with all things Marvel, during his promotion of Much Ado About Nothing at TIFF:

The creation of the team is not the happy ending. It is the beginning of something that is complex and difficult, and now I get to dig a little deeper. And maybe, while I’m digging, just twist that knife. And that’s exciting for me.

Of course it would, you magnificent bastard!

Also, here’s my daily dose of Thor: The Dark World pictures, now with a video!

Remember, that 300 spin-off called 300: Battle of Artemisia? Well, it got renamed to 300: Rise of an Empire.

    Ef Cameron to eternity. I mean, how much can you stretch the story of a stale idea? xD Jake Sully ain’t Harry Potter, you know. I for sure won’t allow an Avatar 7.2

    Having said that. My Bacon number would be 3. Coz I’ve worked with someone that’s a #2 hahaha *stretching ideas*

    Btw, have you learned to dance Gangnam Style?

    • mirella says:

      @amy, I know the steps of Gangnam Style but I suck hard at dancing so I wouldn’t do it in public XDDD

    • Rodrigo says:

      @amy, I’d say fuck most of the sci-fi fans and geek people. They’re the reasons why Avatar is getting another film and (I might be strechting this here) maybe they are to blame for Boardwalk Empire Season 3 not premiering tomorrow on Latin America in the same way True Blood and Game of Thrones (both geek-friendly shows) did air live here (or maybe I can blame HDP and Capadocia’s third season instead). Ok, I had to get the latter out of my head, lol. But fandoms are worthy of a conversation someday (which might not be helpful and could make me more hateful, lol).

      Cameron, he’s mostly been involved in action genre films, but Titanic and a documentary film were his only exceptions. Hell, even Titanic is highly memorable due to an action-style scene. I can’t hate on him because of the first two Terminator films, which I still love to death. I’ll admit he deserves to be bitchslapped for producing Sanctuary.

      BTW, are Peruvians shoving Gangman Style hard on people’s face via tv and radio or not yet?

      • mirella says:

        @Rodrigo, Fuck that, Rodrigo. It’s the commoners that pushed for Avatar’s sequels. The geeks are either indiferent or (the “elite” geeks) hate it with a passion and denounce Cameron as a hack.
        About Gangman Style, I don’t list to radio BUT my friends who do tell me it has been heard from time to time, but it is called “el baile del caballo”, which offends K-pop fans and fans of calling things by its proper name XD

        • Rodrigo says:

          @mirella, I apologize if I sounded offensive there. The HBO thing can be easily explained from a regional standpoint with its preference towards Latin American productions.

          With Avatar having a sequel, it was inevitable because of how much it drew. But the marketing was genius (from their POV) as it had aprox. 2/3 of its audience watching it in 3D. I wouldn’t mind watching the second film, but someone has to pay for my ticket. Defining geeks and casual movie goers should be another topic, though.

          Big LOL @ “el baile del caballo”. I guess the steps made the GS song earn that nickname.

      • amy says:

        @Rodrigo, I was watching Canal 2 last last night and they mentioned it thrice or twice – I think they were featuring it on La Noche Es Mia and some other of their shows? The one they air in the afternoon??? I don’t listen to the radio, so I can’t tell you whether they’re shoving it down there too.

        Having said that, I’m one of those that gets annoyed by people calling it el baile del caballo – I could maybe draw a line on Psy Dance. LOL

        Also… the fact that this is just bouncing off here proves that Peru is just an industry that follows American trends, which sadly not only shows on our radios, but also on our cinemas.

        • Rodrigo says:

          @amy, While watching Teledeportes on Panamericana Television today, Gangman Style was used twice. First, a Universitario fan was shown doing the GS move for a few seconds. Second time, the song was used as background music for the preview between Inti Gas vs. Sporting Cristal.

          Also, I saw on Youtube that Frecuencia Latina did a report on the song. I wonder how long will Gangman Style last around here. If Michel Telo and Alexandra Stan got huge radio airplay on our summer time (and their hits were released months before 2012 began), then maybe Gangman Style will be run to death until March. :S

    @Rodrigo believe me when I tell you that Avatar was seen mostly by regular folks an “amateur” geeks. Old geeks liked it fine enough but can live without sequels (like me) or HATED it with passion. In fact, some geeks watched The Avengers so many times TRYING to make it reach Titanic or Avatar XDDDDD There no geeks enough in the world (as proven by Avengers and TDKR) to make Avatar huge box office numbers the fault of geeks alone :P

    Why oh WHY do studios INSIST on ruining my childhood?! First a CGI-laced, live-action death of The Brave Little Toaster!!!! But, but… WWWWWWHYYYYYYYYYYY!!!!!!
