Hiddleston back in Hall H

Picture1Hi Readers,

As you know last year I posted about how epic it was to be Loki’d at SDCC in Hall H. And it wasn’t just epic for me, it was epic for all 6,000 plus people in the room, and for Marvel as well. I also had speculated that Hiddleston’s nearly rabid reception was part of why Marvel ended up deciding to keep Loki around, instead of killing him in Thor: The Dark World.  But now all speculation aside, as nerds now have their badges, we have our first breaking news about what’s to come to Hall H. Loki!!!! That’s right. Last year went so well that they’re planning on another, possibly longer appearance of the god of Mischief, and we’re told by sources that rehearsals (pictured above) are already underway! We assume that his appearance will take place on Saturday, like last year, but we’ll update this post with more details as they come.

Were you in Hall H last year with Loki, and are you excited to see him again this year? Let us know in the comments!

Strange Casting Choices

DeppHammThere have been a few stories floating out there this past week regarding the casting choice that Marvel may be making soon for Doctor Strange. The two actors that keeping popping up are Johnny Depp, and Jon Hamm. Now when I think of either of these actors I have strong opinions, but when I think of dr_strange_27360Doctor Strange I know very little. In a way that’s a good thing. Marvel has already done a good job in their casting choices (RDJ, Chris Hemsworth, Chris Evans, Tom Hiddleston… need I go on?) so I have faith that whomever they go with will be a decent fit for the role, but let’s examine the kind of Doctor Strange we might get, based on some basics about the character, and  depending on who may be cast.

Marvel Movie Magic

Hi there readers!

This is a *very* short blog I had intended to have completed last week, but holiday preparations kept popping up.  Now that all the in-laws are out Black Friday shopping I have a chance to share some lovely news about a fellow Arizonan!

Tomorrow I’ll be seeing Thor: The Dark World a second time. I love it, so much so that I did two bogs one that was spoiler free and one that went deeper. This time I’ll be bringing my non-nerdy younger sister, and I’ll be paying very close attention to one scene in particular.

Here’s a picture of the specific scene (it’s been edited to keep plot details out) : Continue reading “Marvel Movie Magic” »

“I’m Impressed” Thor 2 Spoiler Free Review!

2013_thor_2_the_dark_world-wideThis past THORS-day I had the chance to see Thor: The Dark World a little sooner than others (though not sooner than a friend in Korea, so excuse me while I ask why did South Korea get it first??? No offense to South Korea by the way). Anyway this is my spoiler free review, with a more in depth one coming, that will definitely be spoiler heavy, though that may come later, after I’ve had a chance to see it again, and again!

Creating our demons Iron Man 3 (WARNING SPOILERS)

iron_man_3_poster_final

So, once again it’s been a while, so forgive me if I’m rusty as I thrust myself into blogging about a movie that, for all which makes sense in the nerdverse will have geeks and fanboys cheering.

For my blogging to have some context, I’m going to back things up to where this all started for me, no not Bern, 1999, but San Diego 2012. Comic-Con, the nerd equivalent of whatever fancy brainy party Tony Stark was at, in the beginning of the film. What do both of these events have in common, other than Robert Downey Jr.? Well let’s recap and compare shall we. Continue reading “Creating our demons Iron Man 3 (WARNING SPOILERS)” »

Conflicted about Thor 2, and I thank Hiddleston and Feige

So while everyone has been Living la vida Loki ever since Hiddleston’s in character appearance in Hall H (I even did an entire blog, just on Loki’s three-minute takeover and MARVEL did a promotional video of the performance, which can be seen below), I’ve had some conflicting thoughts about the whole event and MARVEL’s upcoming plans.

Now why am I bringing this up again, isn’t one blog enough to chronicle this SDCC’13 event, sure, most definitely but this specific blog is regarding my simultaneously budding and wilting theory that Loki won’t survive Thor: The Dark World.

Why you ask? Well one there’s the trailer


Specifically Thor’s line “When you betray me, I will kill you” now you tell that to any rational person and they may pause before considering betrayal, however Loki is the God of Mischief, you tell him not to do anything, and that’s like sending him an invitation to do the thing you just warned him NOT to do.

And I won’t even mention the longer trailer we got to see at the MARVEL panel!

So I kinda had a feeling early on, that Loki may not last. Then you add Loki’s performance in Hall H: , and while it isn’t the whole video it of course has the best close ups.

I recall saying to a few people in the fulfillment line that I hoped his performance wasn’t some big secret send off.

Then you have Tom Hiddleson in this LA Times Hero Complex article saying, among other things that the performance felt like a “21 gun salute”, which is a military honor at a funeral.

That practically confirmed for me that I should bring some tissues to Thor: The Dark World, HOWEVER now there’s a quote in Bleeding Cool from an Empire article with MARVEL “masterplanner” Kevin Feige saying “We think Loki could be the big bad for us, for a long time.”

So While I’d love for Loki to last (and so would thousands of fangirls out there), I have to wonder what to expect in November, and to be honest, I love it. Now I’ll go into Thor 2 surprised no matter what, and just like Loki’s surprise appearance I LOVE SURPRISES!

Here’s to hoping that Loki never leaves, and that if he does it’s a worthy death!

Also, if you don’t get why Loki is awesome, this video may help:
