I have to admit, I haven’t been expecting much from Once Upon a Time spinoff Once Upon a Time In Wonderland, because I haven’t liked OUaT that much lately and Once Upon a Time In Wonderland is a really bad title. But this is one book I shouldn’t have judged by its cover, because the trailer looks great. Like, insanely great (pardon the pun… you’ll see). I’m-sorry-for-the-bad-things-I-said-about-your-title-and-(some-of)-the-bad-things-I-said-about-your-parent-show great.

They recently posted their new field agents (read: cast members) identification badges online, giving us a few, not relevant details. There’s also a viral website you may want to keep a close eye on.READ MORE

To be fair, it seems MTV has already decided Catwoman is a hero, they’re just looking for confirmation from you. But she does have competition. You can vote for who will go home with the Best Hero Award at the MTV Movie Awards here. We’d love to see Selina win because we know she’s a good egg but looks like either Bilbo or Snow White already have it in the bag.

Sushi Killer at 16-bit Sirens has a post up about a new photo project she’s been working on: asking cosplayers about their experiences with unwanted behavior, photographs, and physical contact at cons, and then asking them to pose with a whiteboard containing a personal message or the phrase “Cosplay ≠ Consent.” Says Killer:
These [incidents of unwanted behavior] can be as seemingly harmless and annoying as not asking for permission before taking a picture or bothering them for a picture or interview while they were taking a water or food break. But the majority of the stories were more serious and ranged from threats of violence to inappropriate touching, and from lewd facebook messages to stalking.
Her photo set already includes cosplayers both male and female, and even cosplay photographers who want to send a message to other folks who do what they do. If you’d like to know more about the CONsent project or even participate, I can’t recommend reading her entire original post enough. Here are some of the photographs she’s gotten so far:READ MORE

If you’ve ever played the LEGO branded video games you know how much joy they bring. LEGO Marvel Super Heroes is the latest installment and features characters from Marvel’s entire line. Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment has released some concept art showing a few of the characters as we’re used to seeing them in minifig form but also a few looks at the settings we might get to visit in the game. Loki is looking adorable as always but wait until you see Wolverine’s claws.READ MORE

I’ve had a fondness for Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson since his WWF days (yes, I said WWF) and it’s interesting to see the path his career has taken him. He’s certainly made a name for himself with action roles but he also does family films now and then that show he’s not afraid to act a little silly. As is with this new “Got Milk” commercial set to air during the Super Bowl tomorrow in which he must consider his priorities. He’s got two more action films on deck currently, Snitch and G.I. Joe: Retaliation, which was originally meant to come out last year.

When it comes to writing about female astronauts, our coverage here at The Mary Sue tends to be somewhat Sunita Williams-centric. (She’s awesome, OK?) But here’s another lady astronaut you should know: Dr. Ellen Ochoa, who this month becomes the second female and first Hispanic director of NASA’s Johnson Space Center.
She was also the first Latina in space, if you need more impressing.
Oh, and she’s also a classical flutist. That instrument was the bane of my existence in the fourth grade, so anyone who can play it without passing out gets my respect, even without also being an awesome astronaut.READ MORE

Last year the Cannes Film Festival got into some hot water by not including any films by female directors in its competition lineup. Regardless of what you think of that particular controversy, not being open to female directors is certainly not a charge that can be leveled against the Sundance Film Festival, which for the first time this January will have a U.S. Dramatic Competition lineup that’s 50% directed by women.READ MORE
