Gwen Stacy and Barbara Gordon team up?! Yes please!

I really like Malia, and I excited to learn more about her and her mother next season, but in my heart, I am still routing for Stile and Lydia to end up together. They make an adorable and super intelligent team.

Welcome back.

I know I posted this scene before, but I can’t help but feel the need to repost it every time it shows up on my tumblr feed. Bonus! This is way better quality than the original.

Jim Cheung + Kill Bill = WIN.
I just rewatched this move just a few days ago, and I still love it just as much as the first time, if not more.

So this piece was birthed from the same twitter prompt that Doc Shaner used for his piece, and i wanted to follow suit. If i got to create a 7-person all-female Justice League team, this would be it. I like to think of them as a “blitz” team. hit them hard, hit them fast. no muss, no fuss. that top row coincidently are my favourite dc characters as well. This would also be my dream book if I ever worked for DC. the Zatanna design of course is taken from Jamal’s perfect (in my opinion) design for her.

I am loving these posts so much! Great work by Kris Anka!

A few weeks ago, friend Benito Cereno put out this challenge of an all-female, 7-member Justice League. When I did those “My 5 favorite X-Men” and “My 5 favorite Avengers” pieces a while ago I mentioned I probably wouldn’t do one for the Justice League because I didn’t think it would be that interesting, but I liked this twist. So, based on my initial picks, I used these as my warm-ups for the last few weeks. I can’t remember which order I did them in, but somewhere around Hawkgirl I just decided to do whatever I wanted design-wise instead of sticking to canon.

Badass team! Justice League of Amazons! Make it happen DC Comics!

Casting Call: All New Jean Grey

image

Concluding my fan-recasting for past-versions of the X-men, I would love to see Holland Roden cast as Young Jean Grey in the upcoming X-film, X-men: Apocalypse.

Roden has had a quiet career so far with her most well known role being a supporting character, Lydia Martin, in the teen drama Teen Wolf, and yet I can honestly see her blossoming into one of the defining actresses of my generation. Her role as Lydia alone, starting off as a shallow, popular princess and evolving into a complex, loyal heroine demonstrates the vast range and growth in her acting skills. I find it uniquely impressive that after portraying such an annoying and seemingly useless character in season one, Roden was able to quickly become my favorite character by the beginning of season three. Although many may view a show like Teen Wolf as trivial or immature, I have seen the career of co-star Dylan O’Brien grow from the show to the point that he will soon be starring in a movie, Maze Runner, later this month. I expect and hope to see Holland Roden gain the same recognition.

Much of the acting skills that Roden uses to channel the confusion, fear, drive, passion, and insight attributed to Lydia Martin would translate really well into the complexities, strength, and anxiety that would be required to portray a young Jean Grey. Famke Janssen did an marvelous job as Jean Grey in the original X-trilogy, portraying her vast intelligence, her leadership skills as a senior X-woman, and the intense fatigue she endured living with her psychic abilities. Despite my issues with the plot, I even think Janssen did an impressive job translating Jean Grey’s personality and powers at their most extreme in the form of the “Phoenix” in X-men: The Last Stand. With the role pretty well-defined already, I believe that Holland Roden would be the perfect actress to explore the origins of this complicated woman, and how she was able to transform her intense pain and turmoil into power and resilience.

Should Jean Grey return for X-men: Apocalypse, I would love the writers to focus heavily on her relationship with Charles Xavier. I did mention yesterday that I would love for the origins of Scott and Jean’s relationship to be explored, which is definitely still true, however for Jean Grey specifically, I would put more stress on how she came to be so close with Xavier. My friend did point out that we basically saw a glimpse of their past in X-men: the Last Stand already, but as I acknowledged before, the time-shift from X-men: Days of Future Past basically wiped the slate clean. Jean and Charles could have had a completely different history and relationship from before, which with both of their resurrections by the end of the last X-film, we can be pretty sure did happen.

I also think this would be the perfect opportunity to highlight Charles Xavier’s abilities as teacher, specifically for a psychic student. We saw Xavier consult the X-men through their abilities in X-men First Class, but Jean Grey would be a brand new challenge. Jean’s powers, if not initially, eventually come to match those of Xavier, and so it would be fun to see how James McAvoy would interact with and direct a psychic mutant like Roden’s Jean Grey, who possesses such raw, untapped power. These scenes would not only make some great interactions between characters, but also some epic battles or moments of destruction, especially if Apocalypse is also at the center of the conflict. Jean Grey and Charles Xavier against Apocalypse would be insanely awesome.

I AM DONE! With the additions of my “All New X-men”, here is how I’d dream the X-men: Apocalypse cast to break down:

James McAvoy (Charles Xavier), Michael Fassbender (Magneto), Jennifer Lawrence (Mystique), Nicholas Holt (Beast), Hugh Jackman (Wolverine), Holland Roden (Jean Grey), Brenton Thwaites (Cyclops), Samira Wiley (Storm), Asa Butterfield (Nightcrawler), Lucas Till (Havok), Evan Peters (Quicksilver), Bingbing Fan (Blink), and possibly, Channing Tatum (Gambit). *I have no idea who should play Apocalypse…yet.

What did you think?

Thank you for stopping by, and although I know I rant a lot, I hope you enjoyed my exploration into the possibilities of introducing “All New X-men”. Although I realize these actors are likely not even on the radar of the writers, I do hope that at the very least they reintroduce a couple of young versions of these established X-men in X-men: Apocalypse! I guess we will have to wait and see!

The fourth and final season of the Legend of Korra arrives October 3rd! THAT IS SO SOON! I can’t believe it, and after how much I enjoyed last season, I can’t wait, which I guess I won’t have to! YES!

P.S. Korra’s new hairstyle is beautiful. I am a big fan!

Casting Call: All New Cyclops

image

Continuing my fan-recasting for past-versions of the X-men, I would love to see Brenton Thwaites cast as Scott Summers a.k.a. Young Cyclops in the upcoming X-film, X-men: Apocalypse.

Thwaites may not have much experience in the spotlight thus far, but what I have seen from his roles in The Giver, Maleficent, and Oculus are the skills and talent to explore the isolation, intensity, strength, and passion that define a character like Scott Summers. James Marsden already did a fantastic job at not only defining Cyclops as a leader, but also showing the subtle anxiety he holds onto regarding his destructive powers. With this young Cyclops, I believe Thwaites would be able to successfully expose how Scott came to both carry this fear and eventually turn it into resilience and great leadership.

Should Cyclops return for X-men: Apocalypse, I would love for the writers to focus on three defining relationships in his life: Charles Xavier, Alex Summers, and Jean Grey: 

  1. Charles and Scott both appeared in the original trilogy, and yet we never saw the father-son bond that defined their relationship in the comics. Despite being the leader of the X-men, we also never knew how or why Charles chose to put Scott in charge. This movie would give James McAvoy and Thwaites that chance.
  2. Alex Summers’ introduction in X-men: First Class, and his reappearance in X-men: Days of Future Past, inspired a lot of fans, including myself, to dream of the day we would see the Summers brothers reunite. Regardless of the order of their ages, I would love for the writers to introduce a relationship between these two, in which there are so many possibilities. They could be estranged, enemies, close friends, strangers, etc. Any of these options would be fascinating to be see, as would the subsequent scenes of Lucas Till and Thwaites fighting alongside or against each other with their amazing powers.
  3. Jean and Scott’s love story is one of legend in the comics. It is so well known in fact, that the writers solidified it early in the X-film Universe. With their possible reintroduction in X-men: Apocalypse, we could finally see how their relationship came to fruition, both with the growth of their powers, the battles they fought together, and the challenges they faced in the early years of the X-men. This is arguably the most important relationship of the three listed here, in which I don’t think you really can have Scott without Jean and vice versa.

With regard to the movie itself, Cyclops has been one of Apocalypse’s biggest enemies in the history of the X-men. At this point we don’t know Apocalypse’s motivation, apart from mass destruction. The reintroduction of Young Cyclops could be the perfect catalyst for a battle between the X-men and Apocalypse.

My main desire with having Cyclops in this movie is to move forward with the decision the writers introduced in X-men: Days of Future Past. They finally brought him back! After his disturbing and infuriating death in X-men: The Last Stand, the writers took the opportunity to correct the mistakes of the past by resurrecting Cyclops in the end of the last X-film. With this decision, I think they should use the upcoming film to continue to explore the characters we have missed for so many years, with Cyclops at the forefront.

That’s it! One more left! Please stop by tomorrow night as I reveal my final casting choice for the “All New X-men” of X-men: Apocalypse.

All New X-men: Nightcrawler, Storm

I just noticed how much you remind me of Talia.

I finally watched the season finale of Teen Wolf, and although I found the episode (and this season) underwhelming, I did enjoy this evolution of Derek Hale’s character. I have always wished that we could have gotten to know more about Derek’s mother, Talia Hale, but at the very least we can see that Derek seems to be moving in her footsteps. I love it.
