Things We Saw Today: Quicksilver, What In the Hell Are You Doing?
Every single promo pic I see of X-Men: Days of Future Past‘s Quicksilver makes me even more convinced that he’s some sort of weird fever dream. (Collider)
- The Ellen Page-starring film adaptation of Greg Rucka‘s Queen & Country has a new writer: Olivia Milch, who’s also writing Sony’s Little Women remake. (Comic Book Resources)
- Via The Frisky, Black Women’s Hair Is Under More Scrutiny With The Army’s New Grooming Regulations. Now banned: “braids or cornrows larger than a quarter of an inch.” Because, according to a spokesman, the army must “maintain uniformity within a military population.” They need to ditch that “the default is white” mindset.
I can’t imagine Billie Piper actually plays a consumptive vampire in Penny Dreadful, but that’s sure what it looks like judging by this poster.
- Donnie Yen has signed on for the Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon sequel. To those of you for whom the name of martial arts star Donnie Yen is relevant: OMG DONNIE YEN’S GOING TO BE IN THE CROUCHING TIGER, HIDDEN DRAGON SEQUEL. To those for whom it isn’t: OMG THE CROUCHING TIGER, HIDDEN DRAGON SEQUEL IS STILL HAPPENING! And it still stars Michelle Yeoh! (Deadline)
- Remember Her Universe’s “Geek Couture” design competition? If not, no big; you can read about it here. We just wanted to remind you that the deadline to submit is this Friday.
Collider has some new Guardians of the Galaxy promo pics, and they are bor-ing. Except the Peter Quill one. I kind of want to gaze at the Peter Quill one some more.
