Still don’t want to see this movie… but Idris Elba. But live-action Disney remake. But Idris Elba.

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.READ MORE

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…READ MORE

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.READ MORE

One of these rumors is not like the other. By which I mean, one of them is being talked about in The Hollywood Reporter, and the other is being talked about on a fansite. But that fansite one is one we’d be totally down for, so we’re going to yell it in your face over the internet and hop up and down a bit.READ MORE

It’s amazing what mere time can do. For example, it turns a clip from Space Precinct (actual name), a 1994 BBC sci-fi police procedural (actual, non-satirical series concept), into a clip with an inexplicable cameo with inexplicable voice dubbing. Did they think that Idris Elba‘s voice alone would sound like it had better production value than the rest of the series?
I say odds are high.
