The Carnival last weekend was fantastic. We even saw a sheep show and duck-herding. The IKEA problem was quickly sorted out by ringing the delivery company -- No, they had no plans to deliver that day, weren't in the area and IKEA could never have instantly promised that they would without checking first. So we went to the carnival and got a our furniture the Friday after. I'll try to post some photos soon, but I've got a busy week coming up. An interview, a phone interview, and then I'm leading a Squeefest workshop.

Two days ago I saw Assemblage 23 at the O2 Academy in London. It reminded me of my favourite goth club on the outskirts of Kabukicho in Tokyo (URGA), so I felt at home. The only real differences were the high drink prices and the ban on smoking. Lose some, win some.

They played Document, Drive, and Last Mistake, which is a relatively new song off their June 2012 album. The final song mentioned was awesome, with rawer vocals than the recorded version. Unfortunately, the live versions online aren't that great.

I would choose Thor if I thought there would be more Loki. :D But it's a very very narrow margin of choice between the three - thor, Iron Man and Captain America - for me. I have to say I don't really care about Antman either way, but I am not against it either. Guardians of the Galaxy looks dumb, I have to say. Not interested. Think they should have turned their current movie making talent to a more desrving subject.

I'm interested in all of them. Ant-Man, because of Edgar Wright's involvement, and Guardians of the Galaxy because WHAT? I presume they have a Plan here, but even I've never read that comic. I think most people would be up to see a Loki-centric film instead.

All the characters I want to see films about Marvel sadly gave to other studios (before they started making films, I guess). When i say 'see films' I mean well cast good films. :D Characters like Bullseye. ^__^ Well, my dream would be a Dark Avengers movie, but it'll never happen - too many of the characters 'belong' to another hero's 'cast' (like Norman/Spiderman or Bullseye/Daredevil), and it would be a difficult story to explain to a general audience anyway, without a lot of set up.

AntMan is just not on my radar at all as a character, so i have no idea what to make of that. :)

Ant Man wouldn't be my first choice either, but I like the creative team so far. I guess everything else Marvel has done has worked out so far.

My favourites were always the X-Men, and of those I liked Gen X (initial run), Excalibur (Warren Ellis) and X-Factor (treacherous Havok era) the best. But I found X-Men First Class to be somewhat meh. I also really liked Deadpool, although only when Joe Kelly was on the title, but the humour was always up-to-date and probably couldn't be funnelled into a movie.

It's a toss between Thor and CA. I want more Loki scenes in Thor and can't wait to see the Winter Soldier in the film.
Williamgenkischuldich on 19th July 2012 14:19 (UTC)
I really want to see the Winter Soldier storyline but although I love that kind of storyline, it's still Captain America. And as for Thor, I want to see more Loki. In the end, I had to choose Iron Man, since I can't resist Tony Stark's one-liners.
