Everyone was in a tizzy about this yesterday: the first image of Wonder Woman – from Batman vs. Superman – was released at Comic-Con. And many thought it was no bueno. Gal Gadot was cast – seemingly out of nowhere – in the role of Diana Prince/WW last year. I guess they spent all the money on securing The Batfleck! Because they really didn’t spend much money on Wonder Woman’s costume.
I’m not a knee-jerk jingoist or anything, but for the love of God, I don’t understand why Wonder Woman can’t be an American (Gadot is Israeli) and I don’t understand why Wonder Woman can’t wear some patriotic stars-and-stripes costume. It doesn’t have to look like she’s wrapped in an American flag or anything, but something more classically Wonder Woman than this. Maybe the image is just super-shadowy, but it looks like the costume is charcoal grey and burgundy? WHAT? I also don’t understand the wedge (stripper) boots.
Something nice: I like that her boobs aren’t hanging out. The bodice is well-constructed on that front, so at least it won’t be like “Wonder Woman’s special power is jiggling.” I also like that they’re keeping WW a brunette. Brunette Power Activate!
So, does Gal Gadot-as-WW impress you? Does she look like a warrior? Does she look like she could kick some ass in Gotham? Is she going to seduce Superman? Or Batman? Or neither? Maybe she’ll seduce Lois Lane.
Here are a few pics from the panel:

Tom Hiddleston made an appearance at Comic-Con. Sort of. He wasn’t actually, physically in San Diego (OR WAS HE? No, he wasn’t). But Tommy did crop up in some “special” footage from Guillermo del Toro’s first look at Crimson Peak at Comic Con. Del Toro promised that he would bring Hiddles and the rest of the cast to Comic-Con next year, because Crimson Peak is still 18 months away from a release date. Del Toro also had nice things to say about the cast of CP, including this about Lord Dragonfly: “I must tell you girls, Tom Hiddleston is the nicest f–king guy on earth. It used to be in the past that you were either nice, or you were good-looking and an a–hole. Now that barrier is ruined.” So, there you have it.
But still, you want more evidence that Tommy is the adorable, kissabl, puppy-like, swan-sonneting dork-lord of your dreams? Well, then I have got something for you. According to a new biography of Joss Whedon, when Whedon stepped in to do a decent draft of The Avengers, Tommy wrote him a lovely email/letter telling Joss how brilliant and fantastic he is. Here is the letter:
I am so excited I can hardly speak.
The first time I read it I grabbed at it like Charlie Bucket snatching for a golden ticket somewhere behind the chocolate in the wrapper of a Wonka Bar. I didn’t know where to start. Like a classic actor I jumped in looking for LOKI on every page, jumping back and forth, reading words in no particular order, utterances imprinting themselves like flash-cuts of newspaper headlines in my mind: “real menace”; “field of obeisance”; “discontented, nothing is enough”; “his smile is nothing but a glimpse of his skull”; “Puny god” …
… Thank you for writing me my Hans Gruber. But a Hans Gruber with super-magic powers. As played by James Mason … It’s high operatic villainy alongside detached throwaway tongue-in-cheek; plus the “real menace” and his closely guarded suitcase of pain. It’s grand and epic and majestic and poetic and lyrical and wicked and rich and badass and might possibly be the most gloriously fun part I’ve ever stared down the barrel of playing. It is just so juicy.
I love how throughout you continue to put Loki on some kind of pedestal of regal magnificence and then consistently tear him down. He gets battered, punched, blasted, side-swiped, roared at, sent tumbling on his back, and every time he gets back up smiling, wickedly, never for a second losing his eloquence, style, wit, self-aggrandisement or grandeur, and you never send him up or deny him his real intelligence…. That he loves to make an entrance; that he has a taste for the grand gesture, the big speech, the spectacle. I might be biased, but I do feel as though you have written me the coolest part.
… But really I’m just sending you a transatlantic shout-out and first-bump, things that traditionally British actors probably don’t do. It’s epic.
[Via Business Insider]
Joss wrote him back, of course, and you can see Joss’s kind respond here. I’m debating with myself whether I think Hiddles is a giant dork for this. When I first read the letter a few days ago, my immediate reaction was CRINGE. It’s just so ass-kissy and overly obsequious. I waited a while and re-read it. And my reaction was different the second time around. I think it’s mostly a nice letter, gushing and complimentary and it’s just the kind of letter one fan-boy would send another fan-boy. So, fair enough. Hiddles is just so EXTRA though. Sigh…

Actor Steven Bauer used to be a big deal. He had a big part in Scarface and at one point (in the ‘80s), he seemed poised to break out in a big way. I actually asked my mom if she knew what happened to him and she said “Something about drugs, I think.” Mom-gossip! But, I have to admit, he really never disappeared. I’m looking through his IMDB page and he’s worked consistently in many, many film and TV projects for decades now. Anyway, he’s 57 years old. And his new girlfriend is 18 years old. Not only that, she’s a some kind of Tea Party activist or something. Oh… this is just bizarre.
Age ain’t nothing but a number! Ray Donovan star Steven Bauer, 57, is dating 18-year-old Lyda Loudon, a source confirms to Us Weekly.
The pair stepped out together at the Magic In The Moonlight premiere hosted by Sabra at the Linwood Dunn Theater in Hollywood on Monday, July 21. According to her Twitter, Loudon is an “art-time nightmare-inspirer, journalist, host of Sarcasm Overdose, ceo, full-time wildchild, [and an] unsalvageable degenerate film/music/cigar/espresso addict.”
“Magic in the Moonlight premiere one of the best I’ve ever seen,” the brunette teen tweeted from the event, “melted my nonexistent heart that’s how good it was. release date is july 25th & it’s good for the whole family go see it.”
The self-described “wildchild” has also had her hand in charity since the age of 14. According to TeaPartyConference.org, Loudon founded “Tea Party Youth, the only youth-founded, youth-owned and youth-controlled movement exclusively dedicated to the Tea Party’s future.”
Bauer, who is best known for his role as Manny Ribera in Scarface, was previously married to Melanie Griffith. The two divorced in 1987; together they have a 28-year-old son named Alexander.
[From Us Weekly]
We don’t have the photos of Lyda with Bauer at the premiere, but you can see one at Us Weekly. I did grab some photos of Lyda from Twitter, one of Lyda with a huge gun and one of Lyda with Louie Gohmert. Yes, THAT Louie Gohmert. So… nothing to see here? It’s just a 57-year-old actor with a teenaged, gun-toting wingnut, right? Absolutely nothing to get worked up over.

This month has seen tons of media speculation about Zoe Saldana’s uterus. She was wearing overalls and loose clothing for weeks, which was a huge tip off. Zoe never said anything herself, but one of Zoe’s friends gave an exclusive to Us Weekly last Monday. Then multiple sources revealed to E! that Zoe and husband Marco Perego were expecting twins.
Zoe has already revealed a visible bump on the Guardians of the Galaxy red carpets, but she’s still furious that people are talking about her pregnancy. She whipped out her bitch on Twitter about it: “I would like to thank all the f—ing media for invading our privacy.”
Did you hear that? Now the media has “disrespected” Zoe. The thing is, she’s correct in a way. As much as I’d like to give Zoe a hard time for throwing attitude, she does have a right to complain about this. Celebrities implicitly agree to give up a certain amount of privacy when they seek out fame. Pregnancy is a delicate matter though. Especially in the early stages when things can go wrong. Any pregnant woman should have the right to announce her pregnancy when she decides to do so.
Zoe has balls for tweeting out against the media in the middle of a press tour. And with added profanity to boot. That part wasn’t very classy. She does need to figure out which of her friends are leaking to the press. Plug those holes, girl.

This post is just dork stuff from the Game of Thrones panel at Comic-Con, which is to say it’s life-affirming and amazing and I never want to stop talking about Game of Thrones. I’m just including lots of Pedro Pascal photos from Comic-Con, because he’s BOSS and I love that he came out for the GoT panel even though (spoiler) he’s dead. A lot of GoT castmembers were there, including Jamie Lannister (I’m not spelling his real name), Ayra Stark, Kit Harington, Gwendolyne Christie and more. But everybody wanted a piece of Pedro. Of course they did. LOOK AT HIM. He is dreamy.
Anyway, a bunch of new stuff/information debuted at Comic-Con. We know for sure that Dorne is going to play a big part in Season 5, and a bunch of Oberyn Martell’s relatives will be introduced. I’m looking forward to seeing Alexander Siddig as Doran Martell, Oberyn’s older brother. Also, Keisha Castle-Hughes is one of Oberyn’s daughters!!! One of the biggest “gets” for Game of Thrones is the casting for “the High Sparrow,” who will be some kind of major religious figure in King’s Landing. The High Sparrow will be played by Jonathan Pryce. I LOVE JONATHAN PRYCE. Here’s a little introductory video on the new castmembers:
Very cute. I love it when the actors seem to geek out on the GoT material. That’s why I enjoyed that Sean Bean interview – Bean is still a fan of the show, he still cares about those characters and how the story is told and he would love to come back. It feels like the new cast members feel like they just won the lottery too.
And here’s blooper reel for Season 4. Charles Dance is so funny. So is Dinklage!

Welcome to this week’s installment of The Most Important People on The Internet because sometimes this site makes fun of celebrities instead of talking for five hours about nerd shit. (I’m as shocked as you are.) So enjoy all of that while I sit around refreshing Comic-Con updates because how fun can women’s vaginas be? No, seriously, I’m asking. Tell me everything.

Welcome to Day Two of our Comic-Con coverage which I’m telling myself will justify beefing this Friday to go see Guardians of The Galaxy and spending way too long writing a dick-joke laden review of it. Lies are fun. Anyway, let’s get to it. I’ve still got Most Important People to put up when I should be on the couch replenishing my word juice.
Game of Thrones
To the surprise of no one, the Game of Thrones panel fucking killed which usually happens when you bring an actual giant woman who looks remarkably good dolled up. I would hire Sherpas and somehow hit that. I’m still working out the logistics. *doodles a crude series of lifts and pulleys* Oh, and they also brought a blooper reel from Season 4 which exploded the Internet’s dick off. Probably because it contains this:
No, I’m not crying. *wipes tears* There’s a water leak in my house. Shut up.
I’ve yet to sit down and watch this show, but everyone I talk to through a screen because human contact is scary has told me it’s completely slapping the shit out of the DC Comics movies. So here’s a bunch of info about Arrow Season 3 which will apparently feature Brandon Routh as The Atom because that’s how hard Superman Returns fucked his career. He went from the cinematic version of the most prominent character in the history of comic books to fan service on a CW show. Which is why it’s always important to let Bryan Singer touch your special place. (I’ll wait for you to get your kid so you can read that to them. I’ve got time.)
Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
While Arrow might have Deathstroke, The Atom, Arsenal, Harley Quinn and a whole shitload of other comic favorites, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is finally bringing the big guns this season with… Mockingbird? Fucking Mockingbird? You know what? Just watch the Patton Oswalt video. Forget everything you read up here. Mockingbird? Goddammit.
Guardians of The Galaxy 2
Presumably because their big television news was fucking Mockingbird, Marvel announced a day ahead of their movie panel that James Gunn will be back to direct Guardians of the Galaxy 2. Which is funny because Marvel dangled Thunderbolts in front of him if he did a good job with GoTG – And all signs point to that happening. – only to turn around and go, “Haha, just kidding. Make another one, or we kill your whole family.” Okay, I may have made up that last part. Or did I?
Nicolas Cage In Superman Lives
And finally, this news didn’t come out of Comic-Con, but pretty much over-shadowed literally everything yesterday – including Game of Thrones (Forgive me, my giant love.) – because it’s the trailer for the documentary on Superman Lives, the legendary aborted movie that would’ve featured a be-mulleted Nicolas Cage as Superman directed by Tim Burton. And Jesus Christ, the test footage. I feel like someone should legally should have to make this now otherwise this is all just a giant cocktease. The human mind can only be promised so much.

The Crap We Missed where it’s just another day, another embarrassing, drunk public appearance for Kiefer Sutherland. This guy needs some new material. We’ve also got Vin Diesel basking in his almost non-speaking role in which he’s rendered completely unrecognizable with CG effects, Ireland Baldwin at the bottom of the Republicans’ dreaded slippery slope, and Queen Elizabeth who just knows this bitch is about to take her phone out and start texting through this whole thing.
Seriously, there should be laws against these people,

I should probably spill my intestines with a knife for even knowing this, but I could’ve sworn there was an episode of the Keeping Up With The Kardashians where Khloe found out she couldn’t get pregnant because her uterus is lopsided (and a Sasquatch’s). Yet here she is on Instagram holding her stomach with nothing but a heart for a caption. Then again, maybe she just ate some picnic baskets. She definitely loves those.
