New trailer for SHIELD
plus some speculation on casting.( Casting speculation )
Anyway, other than that. Ming Na is sort of Black Widowish? Is her character a Marvel character or a tv-only thing? I don't really care either way, I'm psyched to see her play someone awesome, she was so underused in SGU
And I do quite enjoy that whole, 'superheroes are springing up all over the place' vibe they have going on. I see the Heroes
parallels, but I raise you um, that Heroes
S1 was actually good. IT WAS. IT ONLY WENT SHIT LATER. Hey guys. Hey, Remember when Quinto was known only for being Sylar? Good times,
(Oh my God, I just realised, Mohinder/Sylar was literally my first hero/serial killer villain obsession. IT WAS SO HOT GUYS. SO HOT. AND THERE WERE SECRET IDENTITIES. IT'S LIKE IT WAS WRITTEN FOR ME.)
There's been squee about this on tumblr, so I started watching the promo and there is FUNNY and SNARK and BANTER and then. JOHN CHO! IT'S GOT JOHN CHO IN IT! HE WAS RIGHT THERE OHMYGOD. I LITERALLY ALMOST SPEWED TEA ALL OVER MY KEYBOARD. THERE WAS UGLY CHOKING.
I AM SO FUCKING THERE GUYS. YOU HAVE NO IDEA. (I am a bit weirded out by how he's barely in any promo stuff though. Is he an expensive soon to be killed off cameo? DON'T DO THAT TO ME GUYS. PLEASE.)
... So, you know how I sometimes start screaming about John Cho? And like, it's partially because he's just plain hot, And I'm gonna have to screencap that sunset scene in Flash Forward for you guys, because THE SUNLIGHT, IT WAS SO GOLDEN. AND HIS FACE WAS SO AMAZING AND I THINK HIM AND FIENNES WERE BEATING EACH OTHER UP OR SOMETHING? THERE WERE EMOTIONS AND MUSCLES IS WHAT I'M SAYING.
So then also, Sulu, and the fact that he's a ninja and thenjane_potter
's Space Pirate fic (The Riot 'verse
) and the Into Darkness
promos look like they could be from that instead. Seriously, if that was the movie that had got made instead? CAN YOU IMAGINE HOW AWESOME?
Anyway, so those are the two previous reasons, but recently, ( STiD spoilers )
So I'm gonna brave the stoner movies. ALL THE MOVIES. JOHN CHO APPRECIATION MONTH. BRING IT.
MICHAEL EALY IS BACK ON MY TV! And I thought it'd be an excuse to have him play the wild guy he played in Common Law, but he's way more uptight. HE'S SO GORGEOUS AND AWESOME AND HELLO, COME BE ON MY TV ALL THE TIME.
Ok so people are a bit worried about all the slave robots being played by POC. Which, I think I saw a wider range of skin colours? But maybe it's that the two main robots are POC? As in Ealy and the other replacement? Or something, IDK the trailer was too short. Basically, I LOVE EALY HE NEEDS ALL THE ROLES. So I am watching the shit out of this. Also, I'm pretty sure the Bones/Ealy robot sex is going to be amayzing. Though again people are worried about invisible black guy syndrome. But basically I'm of the WAIT AND SEE opinion, because SHIELD
tricked me into thinking it was all white people, but it might end up being more diverse than I previously thought, so I'm loath to make snap decisions now.
ALSO EALY, GUYS, HE PLAYED TEACAKE. HE IS TEACAKE CAN YOU SEE HIS TEACAKE-NESS? HOW CAN YOU NOT BE IN LOVE WITH TEACAKE?
Also also. Look, he was in that Islamaphobia show back in the day, so I am cutting him SLACK, man. Mainly on account of his face, I'll admit, but he was so adorable in Common Law
. Oh that show was THE SLASH.)
This Autumn is gonna be fucking ninja. (That said, is the Star Trek cast and crew trying to take over the TV world?)ETA: Did you know both Ealy and Cho are about 40 years old? BASTARDS.
