Big ups to Bridgit Sheide (I hope I spelled that correctly, my vision sucks) for this mash-up.
Here’s that sketch from SNL on Saturday featuring Renner and the cast spoofing the Avengers. You’ve probably already seen it. If you haven’t, if you’re that one guy or gal, enjoy.
You can almost feel the balls tightening and the labia clenching over at Warner Bros. While Avengers is raking in the glorious money stacks, their only viable comic book franchise just lost its director and lead. Not only that, but the mind behind the Marvel Movie Universe is the dude they nixed from helming a Wonder Woman flick. Alas. So WB is on their grind with the Justice League flick, hoping to ride some of the superteam zeitgeist. As they go to cast the son of a bitch, a familiar name is popping up in consideration for the Bruce Wayne Man.
When Joss Whedon crushed it with Avengers, it seemed natural homeboy would take the reins for the second one. Not so! Not so at all. There was consternation a-plenty from geeks like me when he wavered, and wobbled. Oh glorious being! Please guide us into a second flick! Think more Dark Knight, and less Bruce Wayne Climbs. The Whedon answered our clarion cry, and now he is explaining why he almost didn’t.
Here is some non-news upside your head. Jim Starlin is the creator of Thanos, and he has let fly that the Death Loving son of a bitch is going to be in Avengers 2 and Guardians of the Galaxy. This comes as a shock to approximately nine people, recently emerged from an underground hovel where they had been trying to conjure Cthulhu.
I suppose this is one way to get a nation talking about a movie. Nothing more American than rudely rubbing our bloated, sweaty, confrontational balls all over a foreign country’s culture. Yeehaw!
Guillermo del Toro hints at ‘big name’ writer for his ‘INCREDIBLE HULK’ TV show. Please god not Lindelof.August 7th, 2012 by Caffeine Powered
The whole fucking Hulk on TV and in the movies but being two different universes – maybe – and two different actors – definitely- hurts my fucking skull. It doesn’t take much to hurt my skull. Children. Math. Squirrels. So trying to comprehend the complexity of the Bruce Banner multi-medium conundrum gets the nose bleeding. Can’t this shit be simple? Maybe? With all of this incestuous riddling, I’m finding it hard to get excited for the TV version of the Hulk product. Maybe del Toro knows this, and that is why he is tweaking my nipples with sweet nothings.
Marvel is ending nine goddamn titles this October as their Marvel NOW! initiative gets underway. Goddamn ridiculous. Half of these titles have already been ended in the past year or so. How many #1 issues can Captain America or Invincible Incredible Wonderful Iron Man have?
Oh shit I love me some Lizzy Caplan. She held it down on Party Down, and got all sorts of nude on True Blood. Even made a welcome appearance on New Girl. Now the favorite of mine is crossing a new threshold, into the world of the Marvel.
