Things We Saw Today: A Portable Hobbit Hole


For when you need to go there…and back again. (via Neatorama

  • Have you ever wondered what a Golden Girls dollhouse might look like? Wonder no more. (via The Frisky)
  • I was asked for my input, along with a few other “Super Fans,” for five actresses I think could play Wonder Woman. See if you agree with any of our choices. (via Fanhattan)

If you drink it, do you get grumpy? But seriously, this is a real thing. (via Laughing Squid)

  • Bruce Timm is working on a DC Nation Batman short. It will be in black and white and be reminiscent of the Bob Kane era. My utility belt is tingling. (via ComicBookMovie)
  • Emma Watson speaks with Entertainment Weekly about what made her stick with acting post-Potter after she originally wanted to retire.
  • Read a preview of Dangerous Women, a new anthology edited by George R. R. Martin and Gardner Dozois, at Tor.com.

I would absolutely get my morning coffee to go in this BMO cup. And then have a conversation with it. (via That’s Nerdalicious)

    But can I bring a Bag of Holding into the portable Hobbit hole?

    For Wonder Woman:
    - Claudia Black – I think she’s gotten to old to play Wonder Woman, but might be very good as her mother.
    - Olivia Wilde – This is a good casting choice.
    - Jaime Alexander – Another inspired choice, but would DC go for her after she’s played a Marvel heroine.
    - Gina Carano – While she has the physicality for some reason she just looks smaller than she is to me. Wonder Woman needs to command with her presence.
    - Gina Torres – To me she would be great as Wonder Woman’s mother’s right hand woman, Antiope.

    Michael Ansara was also the voice of Mr. Freeze for “Batman:TAS” and “Batman Beyond,” which I think is more iconic than his “Star Trek” work.

    Wait, you can’t mix JRR Tolkien and D&D in your jokes. You’ll cause a tear in the fabric of the Prime Material that will lead into the Astral.

    I want to see Gina Torres as Wonder Woman herself. After the picture that was making the rounds a while back, I’m ruined on anyone else.

    Regarding Jaime Alexander, I don’t think her starring in Marvel’s universe really matters, look at Ryan Reynolds, he’s played 2 Marvel characters (Deadpool and Hannibal King) and a tentpole DC character (Hal Jordan); Chris Evans has played multiple comic roles (Human Torch and Captain America, one of the Seven Evil Exes) as well; Jim Carrey is in multiple comic franchise movies too (Batman and Kick Ass). I don’t think being in another studio’s franchise casts a pall as much as people might think.

    This would be a nice compliment to the portable Hobbit hole: the Middle Earth Theater castle! http://www.flickr.com/photos/brainwise/8678693316/

    I say either Cobie Smulders or Gwendoline Christie.
