Mid Week Internet Shenanigans
|Want a ride on my Optimus Prime?|
Ok so maybe it was more of a face to fist with fans, and they weren’t so much fans as they were trying to rob him. While I feel bad for him and his family, because that can be a very intense experience, concern was not my first thought. I, like everyone else jumped straight to, “HELL YEAH, That was for Devastator’s balls you ass!” ok sorry I appologize. Of course the way the story was first presented to me didn’t even mention that the brothers were trying to rob him, only that he got beat up. The natural assumption of a crazed Transformers fan boy made perfect sense. What do you think?
|Vin Diesel happy!|
Vin Diesel has been cast as Groot in the upcoming Marvel film Guardians of the Galaxy, it is known. This week we got to see Vin getting ready for the role and his shakespearean level dialogue. Or he only has to say “I am Groot” but still, he needs to get in character right? Well a video surfaced this week of Vin practicing on bouncy leg extensions for his “alleged” motion capture performance. I say this because a small portion of the Internet is now claiming that good ol Vin and Marvel are trying to pull a fast one. The theory is that a actor of Vin’s quality would never be used for such a small role, it is a waste of his talents (of course they forget Iron Giant, but let’s not dwell on that). They believe that Mr. Diesel will in fact be playing Thanos. Maybe he is, maybe he isn’t, or maybe he is doing both. I offer Lord of the Rings the Two Towers as proof. John Rhys-Davies played both Gimli and Treebeard, a dwarf and a sentient tree! So there is legal precident for Vin to play a demi-god and a sentient tree.
