Honestly, I may /not/ see the movie… but it’s got nothing to do with him. He seems like maybe the only part of the cast that’s been announced/rumored so far that might actually be /good/. Kate Mara is… well, I can’t explain it… I’m just not really into the idea of her as Sue. And Jamie Bell is… *pauses* Look. Michael B. Jordan’s casting is okay, because he will most likely kick ass in the part, and he really /fits/ the character… but, in what fucking universe does someone see Jamie Bell and go “There he is! We’ve found our Ben Grimm!” Like, I get that the Thing will probably be CGI, but in order for him to be a /character/, you’ve gotta have an actor underneath all of that… and Bell just doesn’t seem, to me anyway, to represent who The Thing is. For those of you keeping score at home, Ben Grimm is a loveable jock who grew up in poverty and fought his way out of a life of gang violence. Jamie Bell is… Tintin. (Look, I know he’s an /actor/ and all, and the idea of being an actor is that you play parts that aren’t who you really /are/, but there is a such thing as someone being “wrong” for the part. Need proof? Go watch John Wayne try to play Genghis Khan in “The Conqueror”. Or don’t. It’s damn-near painful to watch.)
Also, I don’t feel like looking up the name of the guy they’ve rumored for Reed Richards, but he doesn’t really seem right for the part either.
So says Latino-Review, anyways…Oh yeah, Miss Marvel is the last piece of major casting left in the movie. Yeah, Miss Marvel. Now,…
Okay, I haven’t read any of the recent Captain Marvel stuff yet (hence me still thinking she was a Major. Also, you can tell which era was my favorite based on my choice of codenames for her.) But that’s fucking awesome! I may need to pick it up just for that.
And, yeah, Latino Review (especially the guy that dug up this scoop) isn’t the most reliable of sites. But they seem to have about a roughly 50/50 ratio on their Marvel scoops, so really, it’s just as likely that this is true as it’d be if some random person on the street said they knew Carol Danvers was going to appear in AoU. Mainly, though, I just wanted to bitch about the fact that apparently people don’t understand that characters whose identity is based on character development in the comics shouldn’t just spring onto the screen fully formed, because it deprives them of meaningful moments of character development in the movies. It’d be like someone complaining that Bucky Barnes didn’t go by “Winter Soldier” in “Captain America: The First Avenger”… because there’s totally no /journey/ he has to undergo to get to that point.
So says Latino-Review, anyways…Oh yeah, Miss Marvel is the last piece of major casting left in the movie. Yeah, Miss Marvel. Now, I’m not going to spoil HOW she is in it, but she is in there kids. The question now is who is going to play her? Katee Sackhoff was originally rumored so it will be interesting to see who Marvel gets for that part.
Yes, because it’s not like there was character development or anything that marked her transition from “Miss” to “Captain”. *rolls eyes*
(So, now that I got my dickish initial response out of the way, here’s some actual /stuff/… )
Honestly, I was always partial to her /other/ superhero name; Warbird. Here’s why… Firstly, it’s just plain awesome. Secondly, it’s just /plane/ awesome (*drumkick*)… like, it’s the name of a military aircraft, and Carol is in he Air Force, so it makes perfect sense that she’d call herself that. Thirdly, the only reason she ever had to call herself anything with “Marvel” in the name was because of the /original/ Captain Marvel (an alien whose name was literally “Mar-Vell”, for those that didn’t know). Admittedly, that last reason isn’t too strong, considering she did get her powers from him… But it always seemed a little out-of-character to me that she’d essentially be dependant on another character for her identity.
Lastly, though (and this is the reason I didn’t particularly care for her becoming “Captain Marvel” in the comics)… Carol Danvers of the U.S. Air Force is actually /Major/ Carol Danvers of the U.S. Air Force. For those who don’t know, a Major outranks a Captain. Now, I get it… the “Captain” in “Captain Marvel” isn’t her rank… but still, I feel like it’s totally in-character for Carol to rather not have a code name that contradicts her rank, even if only a few people are aware that it does.
And yes, that does mean that Carol Danvers can give Steve Rogers orders. Badass.
Black Taco Bell Chicken and Ranch Griller. Is this thing configured properly?
0/10 would not reccomend
I usually don’t reblog these, but The Pink Mints sounds like a really cute band name okay.
I would do this, but I literally cannot remember what I ate last and when I ate it.

okay so what you’re saying is if you put all of those figures in a box and pulled one…
While Sam definitely needs to get his own poster (and spin-off movie, in my opinion…), he’s not being left out of the merchandise. I’m assuming since the above says “figures”, you’re referring to the movie’s action figures… And… there’s totally a Falcon action figure. Like, one that looks really cool. It just won’t be out for another few weeks because of how they stagger the waves of figure releases. True, it would have made more sense for the /first/ wave to be Cap (in “Super Soldier” uniform), Black Widow, Falcon, and Winter Soldier, rather than what the first wave actually /was/ (Super Soldier Cap, Avengers Cap [which is a costume he doesn’t even /wear/ based on what we’ve seen], Winter Soldier, and Red Skull [also a “sir not appearing in this film”, unless Marvel decided to let Hasbro spoil a big twist]). But, regardless, I want my damn Falcon poster!
MY ROOMMATE WALKED IN WEARING A TOWEL AND THIS ENDED UP SO MUCH BETTER THAN IT WOULD HAVE BEEN OTHERWISE.

The best part is, this post actually does something, it offers support, unlike one of those useless “reblog if you care” posts.
