This is no hock, Sherlock: Artist Mel Elliott of I Love Mel is selling a coloring book (“With added fun and games!”) based on Tumblr’s favorite actor who isn’t Tom Hiddleston. There’s a Ryan Gosling one, too. As long as we’re doing kid’s books based on Tumblr obsessions, can I recommend a Dr. Seuss parody where Joan Watson saves Christmas? It’ll be called Lucy Liu Who.
The office has been buzzing this morning with discussions of the feasibility of getting a partially black and white movie made in 2014, the difficulty of sensing the relative level of technology when the narrator is a child native to the setting, how terrifying Meryl Streep looks in that wig, and whether any of us would definitely remember human-tractor-beaming hovercraft if they’d really been in the book.
Looks like we might be seeing Doctor Strange and his snazzy cape hit the big screen sooner rather than later, at least if this rumor that Marvel is already in the process of choosing a director and screenwriters is true. But which directors are in the running, and which (in some cases) excellent films have they previously done? And when are Black Widow and/or Captain Marvel and/or Black Panther finally getting their movies? No news on that behind the jump. I just wanted to mention how Marvel’s chug-chug-chugging along on yet another white superhero movie before any superheroines or POC get their shot.
Thor. Loki. Dessert. Puns. With a bonus piece of fanart featuring British actors including Benedict Cumberbatch, Sir Ian McKellen, Tom Hiddleston, and Matt Smith as cats. It’s like derlaine’s art takes Tumblr and puts it in a blender. And I mean that in a good way.
Well this was unexpected. It’s just been announced a new Terminator television series is being developed, a series which will tie-in to the upcoming reboot trilogy. They’ve got Thor and X-Men: First Class writers along for the ride but the premise has us both slightly worried and hopeful.
With little warning and less explanation, a Cartoon Network show based on DC Comics characters has disappeared from their schedule. And yes, this isn’t a repeat post from last year, this time the unfortunate casualty is Beware the Batman, not the much beloved Young Justice and Green Lantern.
