  3. Idris Elba’s Directorial Debut Is A Short Film About ’70s Funk, Soccer, and Nerd Love [VIDEO]

    Submitted For Your Approval

    I think my favorite part of Idris Elba’s short film Unstoppable, a collaboration with World Cup sponsor Pepsi, is that in the final scene, after Nerd Boy’s taken Nerd Girl’s glasses off and told her "Your eyes look beautiful"… her glasses are back on. I assume Elba cut the scene where Nerd Girl explains that she actually needs her glasses to see, plus the whole "female nerd takes off her glasses and suddenly OMG she’s pretty!" trope is both stupid and extremely tired. That's how the nerd girls I know behave. (via: Indiewire) Are you following The Mary Sue on Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, Pinterest, & Google +?

  6. Idris Elba: Superman, Beat-Boxer, All-Around Likable Dude [VIDEO]

    If you liked it then you should have put a Lantern Ring on it

    To be fair, I pretty much want Idris Elba to play any other comic book character. Green Lantern John Stewart, Constantine, Luke Cage, Aquaman...Anyway, here he is talking about that time he DJed wearing a Superman costume and just generally being super.

  7. Amanda Age 30: We Should All Be Ashamed of 2013

    And That's Terrible

    Editor’s Note: as 2013 drew to a close, we asked contributing writer Amanda LaPergola to sum the year’s geekiest highlights in an entertaining and timely fashion.  We emphasized the timely part for her benefit.  That was almost two months ago.  It is now nearly the end of January, and Amanda still won’t answer any of our texts. However, this morning a mysterious package arrived at Mary Sue headquarters.  Its contents included what appeared to be a note from Amanda’s mom (“Dear Miss Sue: Please excuse my daughter’s tardiness.  She has recently begun The Master Cleanse, and every time she goes near paper, she tries to eat it.”) and the following pages…

  10. Lightning, Thunderclouds, Thor 2


    These are dark times. Dark and gritty times. Or so it would seem from our choices at the box office, where trends kicked up (but hardly established) by the Nolanverse Batman films continue to cloud every superhero franchise for miles around. This is a land where wonderment is traded for plot expedience, story pacing replaced by gorgeous, if rampant, CGI. Thor: The Dark World is no exception, being as dark as its title suggests. Fun to watch, but ultimately only slightly more substantial than its predecessor, T:TDW suffers from being the middle chapter of its series, if not a smaller piece in the giant puzzle that is the MCU. Its visual clout may be mighty, but its story lacks punch. Engage at your peril, for through this ethereal portal lie SPOILERS.
