That’s right, David Tennant! David Tennant will be joining the Jessica Jones project that will be on Netflix after Daredevil! He will be playing Kilgrave.

I am super stoked. And we know that is will be coming later in 2015 or in 2016, so not as long as many of the other promised Marvel offerings.

Are you excited about the new casting announcement? Who would you like to see them casting next?

Avengers 2: Age of Ultron Trailer

Avengers2544857f3d01b7
The 2nd Age of Ultron trailer has hit the interwebs! I am really interested to see how The Vision and the Scarlet Witch’s story lines will compare to the comic books.

I am also curious who the scruffy man is. He reminds me of Wolverine (not Hugh Jackman but the character;) but we know that can’t be. And he doesn’t look like Paul Bettany to me so he can’t be The Vision. Hmm… I haven’t researched at all yet so I may report back;).

So what do you think? Are you excited or already disappointed because of the changes to the stories we already know? I am excited and looking for to this premiere and the Daredevil show that will premiere in April. Big spring for Marvel!

I do believe that Marvel will soon run the world;). So can we get Iron Man to pop over to France to deal with things;)?

Benedict Cumberbatch is Pregnant

Ok, really Sophie Hunter is. But either way it means that Sophie Hunter and Benedict Cumberbatch are expecting the first child. It has been officially announce by a representative of Cumberbatch so this isn’t speculation. They also are now talking about getting married sooner, as in the next few months.

So how is fandom going to respond. Freak out because this means he will be even more connected to Sophie Hunter? Or more in love with him because he will be a daddy? For this fan I am happy for them and wish them all the happiness in the world!

Official Word on Cumberbatch and Doctor Strange

DoctorStrange

It feels like we have been talking about Doctor Strange forever! But finally we have real and official news!

The illustrious and much drooled over Benedict Cumberbatch is going to be playing Doctor Stephen Strange. Yes, it is true. We finally have a title actor for the movie that won’t start filming until like summer of 2015 and won’t come out until November of 2016. Just kidding, sort of.

I have been following the “who will play Strange” path all along. I must say, I thought Joaquin Phoenix would have been great too. Not as good as Cumberbatch but good. But it does feel a little silly how on the edge of our seat we have all been about it.

That said, it is going to be fantastic! In 2 years;).

Sontaran Christmas Carols

Strax
That Sontarans want to wish you a Merry Christmas. Sort of. In their way;).

It is really Christmas season! And what is better than Christmas carols at Christmas. Of course with a geeky twist;).

I am so impressed with just how well they did with this parody! The characters have the film voices dead on! Enjoy!

A Commitment for a SuperGirl Series

There has been a commitment announced for a SuperGirl series announced today. CBS has given a series commitment for the series that has been in development by Adler and Berlanti.

Between this, the possible Titans series over on TNT, Arrow’s success and the soon to be debuted Flash things are looking good for the comic book tv world! I also really love the idea of a strong female character taking the lead as the hero.

So what do you think? Do you think this or the Titans will ever actually see the light of the tv screen? Do you think these or the new Flash have a hope of making it for a whole season or more?

Let me know in the comments!

Mr. Cumberbatch as Mr. Darcy?

Um, yes please!

Fan girls around the world are once again grateful to Benedict Cumberbatch for his willingness to get wet for charity.

Give Up Clothes for Good is a campaign for cancer research by British retailer TK Maxx that is celebrating their 10 year anniversary. To celebrate quite a few stars showed up for some great photo shoots.

But lets be honest, Benedict Cumberbatch recreating Colin Firth’s wet shirt scene is something that will be iconic.

The only thing better is if he recreated the role itself. But that may just be my geek girl dreams…

A Fantastic Add to Marvel’s Agent Carter

I am already anxiously awaiting the new Marvel tv series called Agent Carter. I mean why wouldn’t I love a series based on a bad ass, kick butt woman who also helped found SHIELD? I mean, what is not to love? Well, I can’t tell you what isn’t to love but I can say I love it even more;)!!

They have added Chad Michael Murray and Enver Gjokaj to the cast. Chad Michael Murray is fine. He is best known from One Tree Hill. I have seen him in a variety of things and he hasn’t sucked but that isn’t why I am excited. Enver Gjokaj!!! He is probably best know from DollHouse and that is where I discovered him too! In season 2 of Dollhouse Enver Gjokaj did a bit where he was playing Fan Kranz’s character that was phenomenal. I think he is one of the most under appreciated actors out there!

(I tried to find a clip of that fab performance but can’t find it anywhere! Go watch Dollhouse’s Left Hand episode from season 2)
