Ohhh snap. Looks like we have our first instance of the Big Boy Marvel Movie Universe tying in directly with Agents of SHIELD. Directly! I said directly. I know the shit from Thor: Darkened Hair Line had some trickle down effects in the show. But this time — it’s direct! Or something…I don’t really know.
The next Marvel one-shot that’s arriving in tow with the Thor: The Dark World release is going to be titled “All Hail The King.” Anyone who has seen said movie has a pretty good goddamn idea who is going to be the star of the one-shot. Unless Marvel is trolling our asses, having quietly obtained the rights to Army of Darkness. Which would be the gnarliest thing ever. Ash for the Avengers Movement, please.
This is all sorts of wonderful. A fan made poster for Thor: The Dark World featuring some smoldering adopted-brother romancing has found its way into a theater. Well done, fandom. Well done, Shanghai theater.
Hit the jump.
Bask in the beauty.
…I can relate, man. Or how about fifteen slices of pizza on a Friday night? Or two pounds of Laffy Taffy while refreshing Tumblr for nine hours on a Saturday evening? None happened this previous weekend, all of happened at one point in my life. This isn’t about shaming, though. It’s about coming together as a bunch of flesh-sacks trying to make it on this Blue Marble. This isn’t about wallowing. It’s about embracing the absurdity, the rot, the excess, the loneliness, the glee, the victory, the defeat.
This is Monday Morning Commute.
For me, this news is 66% fanboy fluids flinging and 33% oh God owned by Disney industry synergy nonsense. Ignore my protestations and know that the fanboy is winning.
Here’s a clip from Thor: The Bearded Babe’s World featuring the antagonist of the flick. I don’t know much about this Malalekinth (starting with how to spell his name), but the homeboy seems pretty fucking foreboding. I’ll take it.
Thor. Bro. Dick move. Saved the world in Avengers and didn’t even look for Jane Foster. For a little smooch, an “I’m okay.” Naturally she’s a bit peeved off about the entire experience. Thor. Bro. Just be honest with her. This trailer has the Lightning God prostrating (as much as gorgeous bearded lightning lords are wont to do) before his lady in apologies.
Whedon is like The Wolf of the Marvel Universe or some shit. Can’t get some scenes to pop? Bring in the Wizard. He’ll rub them up with witty repartee, and demand only a kiss on his golden noggin.
Yeah, this pretty much summarizes half of the wonderful stuff I come across in the Chris Hemsworth/Tom Hiddleston/Loki/Thor thats on Tumblr.
Listen, I like Loki. He gets Thor all brooding and shit, really darkening the Lightning Lord’s mood and making his beard really pop. Get his Mjölnir throbbing and such. So I dig the character. But I don’t know how I’d feel about a solo film starring him. 12,000 other people? They don’t share my uncertainty.
