Michael Fassbender was the guest of honor at the Toronto Film Festival annual pre-opening-night fundraiser, where he and artistic director Cameron Bailey had a career retrospective.
Thanksgiving is all about gratefulness, cooperation, and stuffing your maw with delicious, delicious foods. In the spirit of teamwork and good eats, then, let's speculate together about what foods our favorite fictional super-powered folks might include on their table.
Wear your feminism on your sleeve! Or on your WHOLE SHIRT.
Check out this awesome shirt from Superfit Hero, a line of exercise clothing that strives to make women feel like powerful!
Sara's Top Fandom Crushes. Apparently, I kind of have a "type." Don't judge. ;-)
Different characters can "speak" to different parts of our psyche at different times in our lives and heck, let's be honest - at different times of the same day. I have broken down my fictional crushes into some categories to help organize my thoughts on the matter. Feel free to share your own crushes and opinions in the comments!
Also known as Charles Meowxavier.
From Kaipo Jones, the guy who brought you Wolverine Cat and also Cyclops cat, comes this life-changing new video: Professor X Cat. There might be bonus Catrebro and even some Catneto. You'll just have to check it out. So many tiny cat helmets.
You can't defeat me now, Charles, not with my powers of walking upside-down!
If you saw X-Men: Days of Future Past this weekend, you're probably in an X-Men frenzy. Awesome garage mechanic Colin Furze takes his excitement to the extreme by building a DIY pair of Magneto boots that let him walk upside-down on a metal ceiling. I'm going to need a pair of these, stat.
It Belongs in a Museum!
These two projects by artist Marko Manev
take epic and make it gorgeous. You can no longer buy the Lord of the Rings
ones, but the Villain Noir prints will be on sale this weekend at the Bottleneck Gallery booth at NYCC. There will also be a special sale Saturday on their website
Faster than a speeding bullet!
DC isn't the only comic book company whose superheroes are getting the Lego treatment: Marvel is getting its own Lego superhero game come fall! Who will be in this new game, you ask? Sure, the basics like Wolverine, Spiderman, and Captain America. But who else? Well, here are some of the most recent images for your Lego edification. Your Legoficiation.
If you want to see the rest of the new crew, check out the source post over at ComicBookMovie.
The first posters just came out for Days of Future Past
, and they are staying true to the general "time travel/different eras" theme. The way that they managed to match up Michael Fassbender
and Ian McKellan
's faces is pretty rad, and the same goes for the image of both Xaviers (Patrick Stewart
and James McAvoy
). Marvel really does know how to cast their actors! Go under the cut for the second poster.
Things to Do With Your Kids
What the Heck is Happening In This Set Photo?
and Michael Fassbender
were recently spotted on the set of X-Men: Days of Future Past
acting like little children. Ok, technically they were filming what appears to be a fight scene but in between takes they splashed around like kids on a hot summer's day. A few more shots after the jump.
Questions! Questions That Need Answering
We already love Sir Ian McKellen
a great deal but a recent takeover of the official The Hobbit twitter feed
reminds us why. The thespian was asked questions by fans via an #AskGandalf hashtag and answered so many, the account hit their maximum for the afternoon. But don't worry, plenty was said and we've documented it here for posterity. Hit the jump to see which were our favorites (the questions are on the right). We've ranked them by how many favorites they received from users.
Things We Saw Today
Duncan Shirah made a Steampunk Portal gun. Now I want a Steampunk Companion Cube. Make it happen, people. (via Nerd Approved
Do Try This At Home
The advent of cell phones with cameras worried a lot of people who were all about classic family photo albums and well, crappy cell phone photo apps made things even worse but cute pictures are cute pictures and you can't deny that these will go down in family history. And while we're at it, let's show you how to have a sweet nerd baby shower too.
The World May Never Know
You've heard of "Sophie's Choice," right? Well I think we're going to have to start a new geek phrase - "McKellen's Choice." Sir Ian McKellen
, actor with an impressive resume but best known to fans as Gandalf from The Lord of the Rings
and Magneto from X-Men
, recently revealed that at one point, it was one role or the other, not both.
