A well-tailored superhero costume is to a woman, what lingerie is to a man. | Click here for the ‘well-tailored supervillain’ (Loki) version
Loki is such a smug bastard. Can’t remember if I’ve posted this before but I drew it last year so…who the hell knows.
Do you ever have those days where you lose five followers in a day, and you just sit there staring morosely at your screen, wallowing in your one-person pity part and wondering… What did I do/say/post/think/opinionate wrong???
"Maybe your army comes and maybe it’s too much for us but it’s all on you. Because if we can’t protect the Earth, you can be damned well sure we’ll avenge it." - Tony Stark, The Avengers
And a *Bonus* (in keeping with Marvel tradition) -
Hope everyone enjoys these as much as I do - they took long enough to make. But they’re finally finished - hey, let’s celebrate with some sleep! Good evening, all. :)
Dear gods, this is perfection.
did they actually realise this before casting them or what
Proof that Marvel genetically engineer their actors.

Welcome back! At least you didn’t delete your account during the sojourn.
Oh my goodness, I think I’d just have to quit the internet forever and move myself to a retirement village, had I done that. ….Again. :P
The Child Monsters had been nagging incessantly about Minecraft for months, so we caved and bought them the Xbox edition. I swore I wouldn’t play that 8-bit madness. But then the urge to create my own pixelated habitat (in creative mode, because I’m lazy) overtook me.
It was wonderful for the first 5 or 6 hours..
Until I realised I was essentially existing in a lonely I Am Legend kind of world where my only companions were my dogs (some of whom I mistakenly drowned beneath my mountaintop water feature) and a few mute snow goblins I created for company.
Every now and then I’d venture into the town, but the villagers were mumbling idiots and I’d have to make it back before night or else the freakin’ zombies and giant spiders would get me (the creepers were kinda cute though.)
So, that was my brief foray beyond the Loki fandom. I won’t be doing that again in a hurry. (Okay, but I really do feel like playing Sims now. I have this great idea for a new subterranean home…)
I’ve seen this subject brought up by tumblr fans before in various posts, and I have posted about it myself too….this nagging feeling that there’s some disconnect or ill-will between Feige and either Chris Hemsworth or the Thor movie franchise itself. On its surface, it seems ridiculous that Feige/Marvel wouldn’t want it to be as successful as possible. YET, time and time again, Thor fans see the second-class treatment the film and character receive when it comes to marketing, promotion, and even the movie production itself (we all know Thor-TDW got edited down to a comparatively second-rate film that is not even in the same class as The Winter Soldier). But WHY? ?
I have my guesses, but they’re just that. Sometimes I think I”m reading into it, because I”m such a devoted Thor fan and maybe I’m always thinking there’s preference given to other Marvel characters when really it’s the same. But then, someone explain these things to me:
-why can I go into my local Toys-R-Us store (as I did this past June) and see a floor to ceiling Marvel display, packed full of neatly lined up action figures for Iron Man, Captain America, Hulk, (small Black Widow figures), but no Thor? Not one. And this was a full-on Marvel display with huge cardboard backdrop (clearly corporate, not local). Why is there no marketing of the Thor action figure?
-why does the Thor 3 sequel have no release date, and worse, why is there no effort to bring in a class-A writer for the final installment? It is being co-written by a Marvel producer (??) and a writer (whose limited resume includes the disappointing Thor 2, and a number of other Marvel projects). Translation: these are Marvel cronies, and Feige does not seem willing to lift a finger — let alone spend an extra penny — to bring in a proven writer who could deliver the kind of gritty Thor movie that the fans were hoping for in the Dark World and are still DYING to see.
—finally, and this is circumstantial and probably the most conspiratorial, but I just came across it tonight, and it’s actually what prompted this post. I was searching for an Avengers video clip on youtube (to use for a gif), and I noticed a strange thing. If you search “Marvel Avengers featurette clip” , look at the results that come from Marvel’s official youtube channel. You will find official blu-ray clips numbered from 1 to 5, and if you check the descriptions (or watch the clips) you will see they include the actor/character features for Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans and Mark Ruffalo (three four of the fiour “major” Avengers), Samuel L Jackson, and if you look further in the results, Scarlett Johansson (even the heli-carrier has a feature, come on). Where is the segment on Chris Hemsworth/Thor? It’s not there. Sure, it’s on the blu-ray but then why, on Marvel’s official channel, did they omit him, like he’s not even a part of the Avengers? (ok, Renner isn’t there either, but comparatively, Hawkeye is not as integral as Thor, and not one of the solo-franchise characters).
So, am I crazy, or is there something to all this? What is going on with Marvel and Thor? it’s all very suspicious. This year at SDCC, since Scarlett couldn’t be there, they reportedly had a taped message of her played for the fans, and she’s just 1/6th of the team. Last year when they were promoting Thor: TDW at SDCC, Chris was filming overseas and could not come to promote it. He’s the LEAD, the title character, the face and heart of the franchise — and you’re telling me Marvel couldn’t arrange a video message? (you know Hemsworth would have done it if they asked him). When Feige was asked about it, he said “these are very busy actors”, he didn’t even say Chris Hemsworth’s name. Tom Hiddleston delivered the only message, saying Chris is sorry he can’t be here, no transportation, hammer’s in the shop. I’ve always wondered if that was a subtle dig at Marvel, like, no transportation b/c they would not fly him over for it. (yeah, i know that one might be a reach, but still, no video message? all these things are straws but put them together and you have to wonder). I think there’s some animosity there, and even though I can’t prove it, I think all of the Thor fans are punished for it, and I wish Marvel would stop screwing us over because of whatever axe they have to grind, and give us the Thor movie we want and deserve!
call me crazy. :-)
There was little to no promotion for Thor 2 here in New Zealand, and not just because we’re a little backwater country no one cares about, but because… Someone dropped the ball as far as Thor: The Dark World was concerned.
There were no posters
for me to try and steal from bus shelters, no grand images of Thor’s mighty biceps cape splashed across buses (always such premium advertising space for movies), and even our local cinema shunted their one lonely Thor poster to the far end of the building - where no one could see it unless they were on their way to the loo. Or specifically searching for it like a dedicated fangirl hoping to take a Thor 2 poster selfie…
The kind of late afternoon teen entertainment tv shows that were always running off competitions for one movie or another, never breathed a word of acknowledgement for Thor 2, and there were no trailers in ad breaks. I even watched TV (quite uncharacteristically) for a solid week to try and spot one.
And most damning of all - no Tho 2 merchandise. Not in the toy shops, not even in the large chain stores that have an entire toy aisle dedicated to The Avengers, Iron Man, Spiderman, Transformers, Star Wars and the likes. To my eternal frustration, these same stores have since had in merchandise for Cap 2. Yet… Thor 2? Helloooo?

I think it’s hilarious that you call your kids child monsters. XD
Hehe they know I mean it lovingly - we’re a wee bit of a crazy family. :D
Child Monster #1 bought me a phone case -now I shall never lose my phone or drop it in the toilet again! (Or so I hope.)
