I hit a serious art block this week, so! HTTYD AU sketches.
sarah rogers had the patience of a saint, and loved her troublemakers very much.
So when I went up to get my art autographed, Posey was like I KNOW THIS ONE, IT’S ON MY PHONE. They weren’t supposed to allow photos, but they let me take this quick one.
The toughest thing about the shield was making it believable that [Captain America] could throw this thing, have it bounce off something, then take some guy out and have it come back to him. We tried some practical stuff, where he’s throwing a rubber shield. Nothing worked until we handed it over to Chris Evans, until we said, ‘Okay, we’ve got this shield. It’s this wide, it weighs this much. What would you do? How would you throw it?’ And he came up with some really interesting ways of doing it. He had nothing in his hands, he was just miming the actions. It was basically Chris Evans’ ability to mime throwing and catching the shield that made it work.”

|Interviewer:||I just wonder if it was different for you playing Charles Xavier after you became a Dad… because if you look at Erik versus Charles, that’s two very different kinds of paternalism.|
|James McAvoy:||Yeah… I don’t know, I think… Maybe not as a person, but as a Dad, I think I would be more likely to side with Erik.|
|Interviewer:||Why is that?|
|James McAvoy:||Because Charles’s way may take hundreds of years, and that’s not gonna benefit my kid. [...] I think it’s symptomatic of the human race’s immediacy and our reactiveness - you know, we’re not thinking a hundred years down the line, we’re thinking… I want my kid to go to a good school now. We’re not thinking about, you know, slowly slowly, we’re thinking how do I change my life for the better right now. We are self-concerned and we are self-centred instinctually. We have this intellect, that then combats that and is trying to sort of make us think of the future and think more positively for the whole world and all that, but instinctually we’re selfish creatures as well. And yet… I just think we’re double-natured we’ve got this battle going on between selfishness and selflessness and at times we’re hugely co-operative and at times we’re hugely selfish and insular. I’m not saying this is what I’d want but it’s maybe how I would react in a scenario like that, I’d be… I’d be there with Erik, going like, ‘Okay, I don’t want to do this but… death to the humans. If you’re gonna mess with us then we’re gonna mess with you back. Check me out, I can do cool things with my fingernails.’|
God I bet..
I bet Sam fucking LOVES having guests. So he actually made a fucking massive breakfast for them, and he doesn’t know what these guys eat - Natasha’s tiny, so Sam makes a fruit salad, but then, maybe Steve (who’s huge) likes fruit salad too, so he ends up with a punchbowl full of fruit. But then also waffles and pancakes, and eggs… though who knows how these people eat their eggs? Sam likes scrambled, but he boils some just in case, and sets up a frying pan in case either of them wants fried. Better put some water on to boil in case someone wants poached…. While he has the eggs out, might as well make french toast. But then actually, Natasha’s european, right? They like that weird-ass continental breakfast shit, so he rolls up some little bits of ham and cheese, which looks weird without croissants and muffins and whatnot so he nips out to get some. And some juice. And some tea. And some hair straighteners.
And so Natasha eats a few bits of everything, but Steve… well Steve grew up during a time where you did not waste food - clearing your plate is ingrained in him, so. Yeah, he did have a big breakfast. He had all the breakfast.
And some hair straighteners.
Mark Evanier, Kirby: King of Comics (via nerdhapley)
It’s Jack Kirby’s birthday, so here’s that story of him being bad ass all of the time.
True fact: during WWII Kirby was assigned as a scout due to his art skills, meaning that he went in alone and unarmed, ahead of Allied attacks so that he could draw enemy fortifications.
Once he was ambushed by three Nazi soldiers, all of them with guns. He killed all three with a knife he stole from one of them.
Dude was verifiably grade-A stone-cold badass.
And that’s why Jack Kirby was the King.
