What the blazes is Filch doing on my screen? And wheres his cat?

And Hugo Weaving? i was gonna make a comment about him suddenly appearing in a dress or elf ears but the way he is talking i am more expecting him to say “Mr Andersom” many many times… hehe

its the funky blue box from the end of Thor!!!!!!! or not

that is one skinny lil runt. my hed is pastede on, yay!

why does lil runt guy sound sorta like eric bana when he talks?

oh those Starks!

its beena while since i saw Iron Man 2…did this exposition thing get mentioned in that or am i going mad? probably going mad…

ooh. imma love Stanley Tucci. imma squish him.

yup…dont mess with chicks man…they;ll hurt you!

aww tommy lee jones!

omgawd he’s sooo sweet! diving ONTO the grenade? OMGAWD I LOVE HIM!!!!!!

hmm - i have seen photos from the RArmitage filming his scenes….this scenery looks suspiciously like where those shots were taken. WHERE IS MY FAVE ENGLISHMAN??????????

aww will i haven to wait for the transformation before my baby appears?

Papa stark is back. hello papa stark! i lust after your son!

aww lil runt looks nervous. poor baby! it’ll be okay. you’ll be stomping nazis in no time!

what a brave lil guy. see it will be boring after this when he is huge.

HOW ARE HIS PANTS STILL FITTING?????????

WAIT A MINUTE! I recognise that nose!!!!!!!!!!!!! ITS MY BABY!!1 i didnt recognise him before - i blame the evil camera recording….surely with a good picture i would have recognised the RArmitage instantly??

that bitch shot my englishman!!!!!!!!!1

lol i like how the cab door had a star on it like his shield.

dude whats with the mini one-man sub-like thing? like when did nazis get such impressive tech? looks like a water-based batmobile.

and hey didnt richard say once he has a fear of water…i vaguely recall reading about him having issues with teh 1) fake water-boarding and 2) fight scenes in a pool in spooks. how did he do this scene?

wow rich - boy your teeth are shiny white! and now you are dead. i am sad.

ah yes - its time to dress like a dork and raise funds for the war! dont you feel like a REAL hero now?

off to save your mate! aww stark-daddy is helping!

dude - is steve and his best friend in love? i think so! :D of course its WW2 era - they will never admit it and he will pretend he likes the girl instead.

oh tommy you fool! Steve baby will be fine. and he will have saved a shitload of dudes! see! i was right

jaws drop…boys love the red dress.

boring fight stuff……..

zomgawd steves boyfriend just fell to his death?what???????/ no one told me this was a tragic love story!

and i dunno why…but even though his head is red and no nose….for some reason creepy version of schmidts head reminds me of the gross guy in sin city with the yellow skin (the one in the storyline with bruce willis and jessica alba)…i am not sure why its making me think of that……but it is!

gawd more boring-as fighting. i am glad i didnt pay money for this.

tommy lee has a car with nitris oxide?????????? WOW THATS AWESOME!!

well isnt that a gay metaphor? steve just committed surprise buttsex on schmidt and his plane. nice one!

yeah well i just saw thor so i know what the blue thing is doing…you be going through a wormhole buddy. i hope you have fun!

aww what a mean ending - at least for the girl. we know he will be back for Avengers….and according to most peeps i follow on tumblr, be having gay sex with Tony. :D

and welcome to the future steve!

seriously if i had paid money for this i would have been pissed.

Reblogging again because i just added Stark and Banner~

These are fantastic.

Another pointless  selfie because a) I’m still figuring out how this magicbox works b)I’ve been trying  out different outfits for like a century c) I’m wearing a dress and I Understood that Reference and Philosophers’ Stone  eyeshadows,d) because why not. 

Good night,internet people, good night.

Wow, that episode was so…normal!

I think this is one of the most beautiful things in the special.
This is not even on the meta “Oh my God, it’s Tom Baker!” thing. Not really. It’s about the hope this gives for the Doctor.
The Curator is, IMHO, the last incarnation of the Doctor. He’s done all he can, seen all he can see. Now he’s Sherlock Holmes as a Bee Keeper. Instead of retiring from the action-packed life to being, like, the President of the restored Galifrey, he’s retired to Earth— his adopted home.
This is one last trip for him. It’s an extended version of the last twenty minutes of Journey’s End for him. Just think about how long he’s been in this form. He most likely regenerated into Tom Baker from Planet of the Spiders. So how long has he lived? Eleven has lived for two hundred years in his current incarnation without any real visible change in appearance. It’s possible the Curator has spent millennia in this incarnation.
And he’s a Curator. He collects things from the past. He remembers. He’s perfectly content not dashing about any longer. I like to think he watches the things his past self does, recalling the good times. He looks in on his companions in their own times. Since he’s on the slow path now himself, he can visit the Ponds without risking the destruction of the timeline. He and Jack and Barbara and Ian can meet up and laugh about watching the world pass them by very, very slowly.
The Curator is the Doctor’s reward for all he’s done to keep the universe safe.

Hi, I was wondering if you had anything to say about the lack of representation of female superheroes in children's merchandise (to the point of erasing Natasha from the adaptation of The Avengers!?!) I've just been thinking about it a lot and then I wrote a really long post about it and you seem like the kind of person who would know more about these things than I would so ... I thought I would ask if you ever thought about it. Also I think you're awesome but that's beside the point.

I went to a comic book convention a year or so ago with the intention of buying some Black Widow merchandise for a blog giveaway, but there was none.  At a comic book convention.  A smallish comic book convention, but still.

You have to understand this goes back to the reasons Disney bought Marvel in the first place.  Like Gail Simone has pointed out, in the wake of the “Young Justice cancelled because too many girls were watching” fiasco, Disney wanted a share of the boys toy market to match the Princess brand’s stranglehold on the girls toy market.  And one of the easy and frequent ways to market to boys is to hang up a no girls allowed sign.

Marketing logic goes like this: if you have a target demographic identified, you spend all your time and $$$ pitching to that demographic, because that is the most efficient way to get returns.  If you do not have a target demographic identified, you identify a target demographic.  And the big population % casualty of this clever logic, not just when it comes to superhero toys but geek culture in general, is women.

When giant boobs and ass pointing the same impossible direction grace all the covers of your comic books, when five year old kids have Hawkeye nerf arrows and Iron Man masks to play with, but not Widow’s bites, it says, hello chums, this is for you.  For you, and not for girls.  Girls games and girls merchandise are kept on special shelves, conveniently colored pink, so they can be bordered off, easily identified.  Comic book costumes for women are made in “sexy” variants, comic book shirts for women tend to say things like “girl power” or “my boyfriend is a superhero” and are kept, in this way, safely in their girly-place. (And why there are shirts like this one that got Greg Rucka so mad.)  It is why, so often, when nerdtypes are troubled by Anita Sarkeesian types or articles like Janelle Asselin’s, they act like something has been taken away from them.  You can’t expect comic books to be made for you, they say.  Comic books are not for you.

Yes, I think about this a lot.  I think about this a lot, and it grows fangs in my mouth, turns my rhetoric vicious. I think about how much money toy companies must have spent to convince the world that action figures and dolls are not the same thing. I think about what it means that we do not have so many Black Widow toys for girls to play with, because superheroes are for boys.  And what it means that we do not have so many Black Widow toys for boys to play with, because boys do not need women to be superheroes.

Further reading, if you’re interested:

I’m just going to point out that today, my preschool-aged daughter cried in Target because she wanted Avengers underwear and there wasn’t any for her.  (I offered the boy Avengers underwear, but she did not want it.  She wanted girl Avengers underwear and was heartbroken she couldn’t have it.) 

Very few things piss me off more than the fact that when I was a tiny kid in the late 1970s and early 1980s, I could get superhero Underoos for a female body, and yet today, in 2014, such things pretty much do not exist.

WTF? How is it that 35 years ago, there was more choice for non-boy geeklets than there is now????

^ And it’s not even like there are gender-neutral options for a lot of things.
My mom’s birthday is usually around Memorial Day and I couldn’t find an Avengers’ birthday card that didn’t have gendered language.
Even something like, “Happy Birthday, you’ll always be my hero,” would’ve worked.
Nooooope.
We are half the audience. Fit for a female body doesn’t mean pinkifying, doesn’t mean flirty is the only option we need, and doesn’t mean one female body type.
Representation in Merch matters, too.

Preach it.

I’m still bitter that I can’t find a Green Lantern ring to fit my moderately tiny hands.

I want non-frillified shirts that don’t make me look like a box if I’m dressing femme. 

Lounge pants with superhero stuff that are actually designed to go over my hips! And that aren’t stupidly long on my 5’2” self! 

I have the money! I want them to take my money! I want them to *want* to take my money!

Cutest Thor Ever via Mary Sue.

This is adorable!

I AM GOING TO ACQUIRE THIS CHILD AND LOVE HER

THIS MIDGARDIAN CHILD HIS GOOD TASTE!  METHINKS PERHAPS WE ARE SEEING A FUTURE FEMALE WARRIOR!

My head canon is that each of the Avengers ends up with core group of fangirl/boys, like Natasha’s (or the one she acknowledges) are teenage girls mainly who see her as their hero, little boys love the Hulk, but Thor? Little girls between like the ages of 4 and 10, cause dude he is a Prince, who rides on a rainbow bridge, and is basically the fairy tale prince in real life. And Thor fucking loves it. His room at the Tower is just plastered with drawings they send him, and he tries as hard as he can to respond to each and every letter he gets. 

HEADCANON ACCEPTED.

And Clint and Tony would try to tease Thor about it but he’s just so proud of all his little fangirls and of the drawings and other things they send him and he’s so earnest about it that Clint and Tony end up more than a little jealous.

I AM SO OKAY WITH THIS IDEA

and oh man I just picture him meeting one of his little baby fans and they have their own little baby mjolnir and he asks her if she’d like to hold the real one, and her eyes get all big because what?? only thor can hold mjolnir! she knows that!! So he crouches down next to her, gently holding her hand as it holds mjolnir so that even though he’s the one holding the weight, she gets to feel like she’s actually the one holding the hammer and her eyes go half as big as her whole head as grins all big and he tells her ”clearly you are worthy, little warrior!”

*collapses into flailing puddle of squee*

All Thors are actually pretty awesome and sweet around kids - even comic’s Thor, who is slightly less of a big blonde teddy bear than MCU Thor - so I  could totally, totally see this.

"Don’t you think it’s a little, I don’t know, not good to give them a false sense of self?”

Thor looks uncharacteristically serious, even sad. “Nay, friend Tony. I have seen the obstacles women of Midgard face, how they are taught to question themselves so harshly, judge themselves for not measuring up to distorted images of what true womanhood can be; strong, fierce, creators of the most profound works, no matter what their chosen path. The lies told little girls run through your advertising, entertainments, so ever present that it seeps through to their schools and their homes.

Thor sighs. “It is my hope that I have planted a small kernel of belief. I know it may be a fool’s errand, but I hope that when they look back on it, they see not a lie, but that for one small moment, someone taught them they could harness part of the forces of this world, that it was there, for the using, in their hands. That they were truly worthy of such forces. Yes, it is a lie and it is not, Tony. I hope my little lie today gives them the strength to cut through the lies little girls of Midgard are told, and that when they look back, they see that all they needed was belief in their own power, their own worthiness. Fair Natasha does not need such tricks to sow the same seeds, but….I try.”

"Oh," Tony says, his voice strangled. "Dear god you *are* a fairy tale prince, but yes, yes, try, trying is good. You um…yeah. Good one, Thor. I’m, uh….going to go set up some scholarships now and uh…initiatives for elementary schools…yeah. Maybe Jane could…um…"

"Have a storm of brains with you? I have always found that term disturbing, but I am sure she would have much to say."

Tony gives him a crooked smile. “Oh, I don’t doubt it, big guy.”
