Gina Torres as Wonder Woman
Nicki Minaj as Power Girl
Laverne Cox as HuntressLucy Liu as ZatannaBeyoncé as Black Canary
inspired by x
The only one I don’t agree with is Niki Minaj as Power Girl. Yes, she has the tits for it, but muscles come first, and I doubt she would be willing to gain it for fear of losing the weight in her tits and ass and possibly losing the large number of shallow male fans she has.
Everyone else is good, except Gina Torres.

There are a LOT of really great scenes in How to Train Your Dragon 2 but this is the one that had the most impact on me and FOR GOOD REASON:
- It’s such a sweet and genuine song first of all.
- It’s sung, at first, by this HUGE masculine viking who spent the better part of the first movie being super cold and distant, leaving his emotions at bay. Now he’s allowing himself to open up and express his feelings and that’s totally okay woah!!
- Along with that his movements around Valka are slow and gentle, allowing her to either reciprocate or walk away. He never grabs her or tries to shove her right back into their relationship. He’s aware of how much time has passed, of her guilt, so homie’s playin it cool.
- But yeah, ultimately SHE’S the one who agrees to the dance and picks up the pace and it’s SO GOOD to see both figures treating each other with so much love and respect.
- Even better is that both parties are ADULTS, the mom and dad figures of the film series. Adults get written out or ignored so often in children’s movies, either by being dead throughout the entirety of the series OR by only showing up at key moments. Both Valka and Stoic are essential to the film, as is their relationship and Valka’s reason for leaving.
- Did I mention how sweet and genuine the song is? Damn near every romance song in a kid’s film is built up to some schmalty love anthem but HTTYD2 takes a quieter, more human approach.
This isn’t even touching on the little details Dreamworks’ adds to their facial expressions and their movements and gosh everything here works so wonderfully please watch How to Train Your Dragon 2
Scenes like this are why music is important. You get so much more out of this song than through a more common dialogue.
Valka’s face as Stoic whistles a few bars. Stoic’s tender, but cautious, singing of what is ostensibly him re-proposing to her. Valka going back through the motions, having her old life come back to her through a dance, signifying she agrees to renew the vows. The joyous laughter and dance celebrating that they can go back to being happy together. THIS IS USING THE WHOLE BUFFALO!
How to Train Your Dragon 2 is a fantastic movie, and this will always be my favorite scene.

It has recently come to my knowledge that my wonderful girlfriend of over four years has never seen Star Wars. Any of them. Now, being that I am the kind of person that loves introducing friends to things I find awesome, I need to figure out a way to show her these films in the best possible manner.
The question is: in what order?
Now, you could say, “Order of release” (4, 5, 6, 1, 2, 3) and that would be fine, but then why have to slog through episode 2 when the best is behind you, only to end on the downer that is 3?
Another equally valid measure is numerical order, (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6) but then Darth Vader’s twist in Empire is a forgone conclusion.
As I’ve been writing this though, I’ve come upon a more narratively pleasing solution: Parallelling, aka 1, 4, 2, 5, 3, 6. You get the first Skywalker story and its annoyances out of the way early, what the clone wars were out of the way after they’re mentioned, the twist still holds up, 3 is still a greek tragedy, and 6’s conclusion feels so much more cathartic.
Of course, I could be going crazy and that’s the wrong way to view them. Point is, what do you guys think? How should I show the woman I love a story that I held dear as a child?
Also, we tried watching Star Trek together and couldn’t get into TOS, so don’t bother with that suggestion.

Oh my God they should make Stallone Frank Castle. We’d finally have an actual Italian playing Frank, he can just reprise weepy volatile First Blood Rambo, and forever more people will be able to pretend Rocky IV is a Frank Castle VS Frank Castle “What If?” one-shot.
See, I was thinking maybe a white wigged Bruce Willis would be a good idea, but I’m sold on Stallone just for the Rocky IV joke.Source: coelasquid

There are SO MANY reasons to love Squirrel Girl beyond just that story though. Okay, so the story that that happened in? It was back in the Golden Age of Comics, when that sort of story was pretty normal. It was an era when Superman would turn into a Gorilla like two times in one year. So yeah, no big deal there.
Thing is, it’s 2014, and Squirrel Girl….is still a Golden Age superheroine. She never wallows in wangst, she hasn’t had a Dark Age—heck she snapped the boy she had a crush on (another “Fun” character named Speedball) out of HIS Dark Age—and despite the fact that her powers consist of 1.) Can talk to Squirrels 2.) Has claws and a tail and 3.) Can climb trees like REALLY well, she has a better win record against supervillains than pretty much any other hero in the Marvel Universe.
She beat Thanos. To put that in perspective, Thanos is the guy the Avengers—the entire team, including a literal Norse God and the Hulk who has unlimited strength—are going to have to TEAM UP to fight in the next Avengers movie. She beat Fin Fang Foom. He’s a giant dragon—we’re talking Godzilla sized or so in some instances. She beat Ego the Living Planet. If you are not familiar with Ego the Living Planet….that name is not a metaphor. He is a planet. Wolverine is edgy when she’s around. Deadpool is terrified of her
She wins battles because Superheroes are supposed to win. Her books are fun and funny, because comics are supposed to be fun, and there aren’t enough funny books in Superheroes anyway.
Seriously, she’s just the best.
SHE CAN HEAR HIS BOXES.
Let me be clear on one thing: Squirrel Girl did not exist in the Golden Age of comics. The Doctor Doom thing was her first appearance in comics, and that happened in 1992. Let’s put that in perspective for a sec: The Dark Knight Returns and Watchmen have both come out and made comics a darker, more gritty place. Spider-Man had his whole Venom debacle, Superman was two years away from getting “killed”, and Spawn was about to make a lot of toys. And in comes Squirrel Girl, drawn by Steve Ditko himself, with a ridiculous power set, a stupid costume, and a stupid name, to not have angst ridden stories about friends turning evil or lovers being crammed in refrigerators, but to have fun stories about beating bad guys because that’s what’s fun.
And it worked.
Squirrel Girl is not only a Golden Age hero that still beats up bad guys in a Golden Age way, but one that came from being sick of the super seriousness in comics, and that’s why she’s awesome. Hell, when Civil War happened, and Speedball went from fun bouncy youngster to guilted masochist Penance, Squirrel Girl marched right up to him and slapped the fun back into him by reminding him he had a cat as a sidekick that also bounced around. She is so anti-angst, anti-gore that she rallies against most comic sensibilities (like ripping the Joker’s face off, why would you even do that?!) that it’s a breath of fresh air.
