 I'm tentatively supposed to go see Captain America with friends on the 25th or 26th or something.

...

I don't know if I can wait that long. 8|a I might just sneak in and see it on opening day by myself like a loser, and then see it again later, because even if it's not super-special-awesome-amazing I doubt I wouldn't like it enough to hang out with friends and catch a second go. And I would get to bask in Steve Rogers being Steve Rogers all over my screen just a few days earlier. :D

Also, Chris Evans being Steve Rogers. I didn't really know anything about Chris Evans until he was cast as Steve except that he was also Johnny Storm, and wtf kind of sloppy internal continuity was that? 8| But then I started reading interviews about his initial reluctance and multiple-times-refusal of the role and the anxiety and sensitivity and really just his down-to-earth personality, and the more I did the more I liked him, and the more I felt that he was the right kind of person to play the part.
 
I've been avoiding spoilers and clips, but I did see the trailer, and seeing him in action--peeking over the shield making 0_o eyes at Peggy Carter after she shot at him, all the other soldiers diving away from the grenade and Steve, of course, of course, being the one to fling himself on top of it--only reinforced that feeling.
 
PLEASE TO BE BEING A GREAT STEVE ROGERS, CHRIS EVANS. ;A; Please to be being a great movie, Captain America. ...Or at least a good superhero movie. :|a
 
...Also, please to continue being the cutest star-struck fanboy over RDJ, Chris Evans. It is THE most adorable thing.

“He’s so great. I can’t say enough about him, I really can’t. I didn’t know what to expect going in to work with him. He’s so talented and he’s got so much charisma and persona. I can honestly say, of all the movie stars I’ve worked with, he’s the one that when he comes on set, you really feel like, ‘Man — this guy’s a movie star!’ You just feel it. When he comes in a room he just owns the oxygen.”

“I had to do a scene with him the other day where I was just nervous, it was just me and him, and I was just terrified. It’s Robert Downey Jr.! And he’s just, you know, every little take he gives you a fist bump, a little thumbs up, and it just changes your whole day. It probably means nothing in his mind but I go back to my trailer, like, giddy. He really is something else.”
--Chris Evans on Robert Downey, Jr. (Avengers)

/dead of cute

I can’t wait to see how this translates on screen. I think it’s potentially a really interesting change to the dynamic from the comics, that Steve is so much younger than Tony in the movies. From their personalities—Steve being such a down-to-earth working class boy and Tony being so high-profile and literally brilliant and an uber-charismatic celebrity and very aware of it—I wouldn’t be surprised if Steve was dazzled by Tony, while being irritated with him at the same time for being high-maintenance and also an arrogant dick. XD
 
In another news, I finally powered through the five-hour 1995 version of Pride and Prejudice last night (conked out at around 4 AM, WORTH IT), and then I woke up in the morning and there was a 27,000 word Charles/Erik P&P AU on my flist. :D :D :D Three cheers for Serendipity~!
cammeh: (Charles || what we most want to be we ar)
So. My obsession with X-Men: First Class is reaching critical levels. I thought that the giddy infatuation would fade after a week or so (as so often happens for me with shiny new (sort of) fandoms), but it's been two weeks now and it's only getting worse. D:

I honestly expected next to nothing from this movie. While I liked X1 and X2 a lot, I was never in love with them, and Last Stand and Wolverine were just—I don't even want to remember them, okay, and then the trailers and clips for First Class were horrendous, and out of everyone in the X-franchise I've never even been all that interested in Professor X and Magneto. So I basically just saw this because I randomly had time to kill and I was already by the movie theater.

AND THEN IT WAS LIKE GETTING HIT IN THE BACK OF THE HEAD BY A TWO-BY-FOUR, AND I HAVE YET TO SHAKE THE LITTLE STARS AND TWEETY-BIRDS OUT OF MY EYES. ♥_♥ I CAN'T EVEN REGRET IT, GAWD.

SO MUCH RAMBLING. The movie and Charles and Erik and some stuff about RP. ) getting all of these awesome Marvel reserves right after I left? I will just have to stalk, orz.) Dear_mun is one thing, and I kind of really wish there was some kind of Marvel or general comics dressing room to play around in casually, or even bouncing off someone in a musebox would be pretty cool. Sixwordstories pretty much sucks.

….This~ entry~ is~ too~ long~~~ This is why I update so rarely, I always ramble for hours. 8|a And I have like five other things I wanted to ramble about, like the new Young Justice episode, and the DCU reboot, and Zoro and Reepicheep and dropping from Luceti, and my ridiculous crush on James McAvoy (WHYYY IS HE SO CHARMING, his features shouldn't even go together particularly well in theory, but then he walks around all smiling and saying words and breathing air and I am like hnnnnng and then go watch three of his movies in 24 hours), and etc. etc. etc.

...S-some other time for all that, I guess. orz
