    Surfing the web today you might have noticed HBO took out huge, site-spanning advertisements for Season 3 of Game of Thrones which featured the shadow of a dragon passing over the page. Well here's the still version of that from today's NY Times. (I'm gonna say it's revenge for this.)We sell ad space here on The Mary Sue but this is one I would have paid to have on the site.

  14. Is This 6-Year-Old A Superhero Or Supervillain? [TRAILER]

    Cautiously Optimistic

    This is a trailer for a new film called Beasts of the Southern Wild. It stars six-year-old Quvenzhané Wallis as a character named Hushpuppy who may or may not have some serious superpowers at her disposal. The film also has some things to say about global warming and the apocalypse. Alyssa Rosenberg at Think Progress saw the film at Sundance and has nothing but incredibly positive things to say about it. Fun fact, she says some of the special effects were crowdsourced. I'd see it, if for nothing else than to see this amazing little actress do her thing. (via Think Progress)

  18. Should Women Give Up On Comics?

    Vital Information for Your Everyday Life

    It’s worth it to keep nudging even as I totally understand the reasons why it might make more sense, strategically and emotionally, to walk away... [However,] it’s much better to have folks around explaining why it doesn’t work... so there will be clear, articulated reasons why people saw the relaunch as a failure to produce something genuinely different. And second, even if the industry doesn’t change, there should be voices in the background when folks read these books pointing out their problems. The key is getting folks who really just want to see, say, Catwoman bang Batman and nothing else to hear those critiques and to find a way to engage with them constructively, which is really, profoundly difficult. But I’d rather live in a world where people who don’t want to hear the works they like criticized have to work to shut them out, rather than leaving them to relax into the blissful sounds of silence. -- Alyssa Rosenberg Actually, Ms. Rosenberg is addressing the question "Should feminists give up on comics," a question distinctly rooted in the context of events that happened over the last week in mainstream American superhero comics. But her answer applies to many parts of our culture in which women are but minority and it is either assumed that it is not worth pursuing the reasons why, or that the hypothetical reasons why are insurmountable.

  19. X-Men: First Class Screenwriter Confirms LGBT Subtext as Totally Intentional

    Elsewhere on the internet

    Sorry, fanficcers, he wasn't talking about the tenderly presented friendship between Charles Xavier and Erik Lehnsherr. What we have here is a case of the internet bringing people together... even if those people are a random commenter and the screenwriter who can immediately and authoritatively tell them they're wrong. We begin with Alyssa Rosenberg's essay for ThinkProgress.org, which was a lovely deconstruction of the ways in which X-Men: First Class continued the subtextual messages of all the good X-Men movies before it: Mutants as an allegory for the LGBTQ community.
