The Fangirly Diary of a Geek Girl: We be trolling~
For those who have not been watching Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Season 2. OMG! Agent Simmons! Yeah, here’s what Elizabeth Henstridge had to say about her character (and it’s spoilery):
They took me aside and said she’s coming back, but she’s just gone for a second and roughly explained that she would be working undercover in Hydra. You just never know because they could tell you, “Oh, don’t worry, you’re undercover,” but then they could turn it around and say, “Oh, you’re not actually undercover. You’re a triple agent.” They tell you what you need to know to act your scenes, but anything after that, you never know. Any of us could still be Hydra. You can never relax too much on that, but I knew she would be undercover straight away.
So, the news about the X-Men/X-Factor TV series Fox might be doing?
It might seem that there’s a fear of using no-name characters, worried that this will cost them viewers (cf. Agents of SHIELD), but also concern that burning up heavy hitters could cut off potential streams of movie revenue.
The solution? Bring Quicksilver! Will it be Evan Peters or recast? Guess depends on where in the timeline this series will be placed, if it’s going to be connected to the X-Men movies.
Remember all the nerd wishes that Dredd got a sequel or something? We got something! And Executive producer Adi Shankar is the man to do it. So not a movie, but miniseries centering on the Dark Judges (villains in Dredd comics). Yay! Anyway, it will be released online for free, so double yay! So yeah, it’s part of Shankar’s popular Bootleg Universe, which includes the short Punisher: Dirty Laundry with Thomas Jane and Ron Perlman, as well as Venom: Truth in Journalism, with Ryan Kwanten as Spider-Man‘s Eddie Brock.
In the last Avengers: Age of Ultron, we got to dive into him some more. Very excited about the outcome of it, and where it can go in the future. But all I can do is want. And that’s all I can do. It all comes down to the content, and really how the puppeteers at Marvel can manifest a story that’s worthy of a solo movie. Not sure what that is, or how that is, but I’m confident they can do whatever they want, if they want to do it. And I’d be game.”
Some apparently lucky dude saw the trailer for Jurassic World and spoiled it all here. Read at your own risk. I just know it seems we have many dinosaurs, awed tourists, and then things that go wrong~
Paul Feig is totally doing the Ghostbuster reboot with an all-female team. And he doesn’t want to ruin our childhood or anything, he just want to restarted, make it cooler and really scary! And I am like yes! Specially because he verbally slapped all the naysayers that said having a all-female team will be gimmicky~
When people accuse it of being a gimmick I go, why is a movie starring women considered a gimmick and a movie starring men is just a normal movie?
OMG! The Hollywood Reporter said that The Lego Movie’s LEGO Batman will get his own feature film! Will Arnett will reprise the voice of the Caped Crusader and it’s hoped that the movie will get 2017 release, possibly the date the sequel of The Lego Movie used to have. Yeah, we are getting the sequel later. The only not-so-good thing? Seth Grahame-Smith will the do the script. Sorry, but he’s just not a good scriptwriter.
On NYCC news… OMG! Here’s the epic Alex Ross’ Secret War image! Yes, that’s Marvel comics’ new event.
Joined by artist Esad Ribic, Hickman’s universe-ending event will be followed by a multiversal-crossover featuring characters from the 616, Ultimate, Spider-Girl and more of Marvel Comics’ universes locked in battle.
Not only that, but Marvel announced a prime-time hour-long special called Marvel 75 Years: From Pulp to Pop! And besides the interviews on Marvel stars and comicbook icons, we will get a “extraordinary peek into Marvel’s future”. We’ll get to watch it on ABC on November 4th at 9pm!
Also, here’s a description of the footage of Agent Carter shown at NYCC! And it has Peggy, Howard Stark and Edwin Jarvis! And Peggy manages to kick ass in an “impressive fight sequence”.
Finally, it’s been confirmed. We are getting Guardians of the Galaxy as an animated series! And yes, we will watch it on Disney XD.
Stephen Wacker, Marvel’s vice president for current animation, emphasized in an interview that the series would strive to replicate the movie’s offbeat sense of humor. The show’s plot, he said, would pick up where the movie left off. The purple-skinned Thanos, a Marvel supervillain, will figure prominently.
Here’s some key art thanks to EW, and here’s the footage shown at the NYCC:
And that it’s for the week. Before I go, I want to wish Happy Birthday to Susan Sarandon (4), Christoph Waltz (4), Caitriona Balfe (4), Neil deGrasse Tyson (5), Kate Winslet (5), Sigourney Weaver (8), Guillermo del Toro (9) and Uzamaki Naruto (10)!
