I said we’d talk about this later, and now we are. I lazily pulled up Tumblr last night during a break from arranging some instrumental Doctor Who music for my a capella group (you can decide on your own whether that is true or not) and discovered that fandom had found a new chew toy and it was the first trailer for Thor: The Dark World. Specifically, it was the trailer’s one shot of potentially former villain Loki, the first reveal of his brand new The Dark World ‘do.
It has not gone unnoticed that Thor and Loki both sported longer hair in The Avengers than in their initial cinematic appearances, or that Chris Hemsworth’s ‘do got even longer, even incorporating a braid, for The Dark World. Fans wondered if Loki’s hair would follow suit. Fans wondered if this hair lengthening would ever stop, and if by The Avengers 3 the other members of the team would be indistinguishable as every room becomes filled, top to bottom, with the soft, golden locks of the Thunder God as soon as he enters it. But I digress. You can watch the new teaser here, if you haven’t already. Lets look at the best reactions from our dashboard and the Loki tag.READ MORE

Okay, so this didn’t literally break Tumblr. The site didn’t go down, but… Well, we’ll talk more about that later. I’m prepared to enjoy this teaser with one reservation. Thor is still an affable lunkhead who’ll just zip his girlfriend off to another dimension without much warning; Sif is still a badass; and the opening image of the trailer, which, while minor, I don’t want to spoil, is conceptually fascinating. I do wish this teaser didn’t make such a damsel out of Jane Foster as it appears to. For now, in the absence of more evidence, I’ll trust that her character’s role has been necessarily diminished by the contraints of making a snappy trailer, especially considering Natalie Portman‘s efforts to shake up the behind the scenes gender imbalance in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, which Marvel has apparently made “concessions” towards.
Also, I may have been distracted by Loki. You’ll understand what I mean when you watch it.READ MORE

When Courtney Leigh isn’t making simple geeky dresses and elaborate Avatar: The Last Airbender costumes for her Etsy shop, she’s crafting adorable stud earrings that I would be proud to wear… if I had any piercings. But maybe you could give them a good home?READ MORE

Tilt one of SirOctopusDesigns’ action cards to the side, and the little figure races along its track in imitation of a wide variety of movie and television scenes… where somebody fell to their death and it made you doubt the purpose of doing anything at all in this uncaring universe. So when I say there’s a card in here for fans of Doctor Who, Sherlock, Thor, Harry Potter, The Lord of the Rings, and Supernatural, what I mean is that these cards are a cruel but hilarious gift for fans of Doctor Who, Sherlock, Thor, Harry Potter, The Lord of the Rings, and Supernatural. Here’s a gallery of gifs featuring the cards in glorious action.
Needless to say, this post contains spoilers for the above listed shows and movies.READ MORE

Thor star Jaimie Alexander’s name is one that pops up frequently on dream casting for Wonder Woman, and if you saw her kicking butt as Sif, you know why. But while the actress herself would love to play Diana, she’s not sure she actually would if asked. Why? Well because no one treats Wonder Woman with respect, of course.
