Sam Mendes directed the last two James Bond movies. And whatever the problems with the plot one may have (even I fucking hated Spectre), they were unflinchingly gorgeous. So it’s with a heavy heart that I announce he’s leaving the franchise. Along with, it seems, Daniel Craig. But bring on Tom Hiddleston! But bring on another talented director, please!
Fuck yeah! After watching Night Manager, I am more than concerned than convinced that I would love Loki as my next Bond, James Bond.
This one came out of the fucking woods for me. I caught director Ben Wheatley’s Kill List a couple of years ago with Bateman, and found it enjoyably, enjoyably haunting. So apply his talent to adapting yet another J.G. Ballard book I haven’t read (dystopian no less!), starring Loki, and you got a movie I’m anticipating.
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.
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.
The newest Empire Magazine has something like thirty-three trillion new images from Thor: The Dark World. Marvel in the beauty of the Hammer-Wielding Beauty. Scoff at those who get to bask in his presence, knowing full well that you are much more deserving.
