GEEK: THE JUSTICE LEAGUE WE COULD HAVE HAD

20140407-163640.jpg

I’m assuming that these people are still receiving money from the WB for their roles that were cast before the writer’s strike blew up the proposed George Miller project. Looks like a fun crew. I would have killed to see their Aquaman.

I think now that we have these pics then it won’t be long before we see the characters in their costumes.

Geek: This is the Thor We Need!!!

No offense to Chris Hemsworth, but this Thor would have been a fascinating character.  Tom Hiddleston auditioned for the role of Thor before they cast Hemsworth and they like Tom so much that they called him in for Loki. The rest is history.

I’m sure that Hemsworth had a bit more of that masculinity necessary for the role, but the tumblrs of love for Hiddleston suggest that ladies love Tom!

Goodness, I want to see this version of Thor right now!

Geek: Barry Meets Ollie

This week we will get the highly anticipated debut of Grant Gustin as Barry Allen, Crime Scene Investigator on the CW’s Arrow. Looking back, it seems like The Flash should have always been in serious consideration for a television show, particularly with our current cultures obsession with the procedural drama (CSI anyone?). Barry has always been a CSI and the affects have been available for years now.

I still remember the reports on the development of the old Flash TV show because I was watching them from afar. My family was on mission in Cameroon and the only connection I had back home was ‘Voice of America’ radio and reading the Entertainment Weekly magazines that the library at the American school would stock up on. I also recall how pissed off I was that I would not be able to see all the new episodes before I returned to the states (in December 1990).

John Wesley Shipp will remain a golden god in my mind forever!!

Geek: Tim Burton in his Early Days

Did you know that Tim Burton was once a fledgling Disney animator? Well, here is a strange video of an apparent tour of the Disney animator offices from the ’80s. Tim seems rightfully out of it, but also he looks stunningly just like the kid-Dr. Frankenstein he created for FrankenWeenie!

Cool little nugget that YouTube always seems to produce.
