Well, I love Iain. He’s one of my best friends in real life, so any time we get a chance to work together is great, because both of us have an understanding – you know, this is not talking about character-wise, but personal actor-wise. I think both of us have a similar process and are there to work. I’m a huge fan of his work, anyway. It’s a really good thing where it feels like you’re in the ring with someone who can really throw the punch back. It’s pretty fantastic. I love working with him. We dance well together.

So, this is a few months behind, while I work on reformatting how it displays to better accommodate duplicate volumes, but if it is of interest: this is my complete chart of all marvel books, aranged in relative chronology to each other.…

Holy shit. This is gorgeous. How did you not go actual facts insane? 

I seriously want to say more about this but I can’t, I’m that close to speechless.
'Thor: Ragnarok' Director Taika Waititi On Casting Tessa Thompson As Valkyrie
Hit the jump to find out what director Taika Waititi had to say about casting Tessa Thompson as Valkyrie in the highly anticipated movie.

In a recent interview with Comic Book Resources to promote his latest movie, Hunt for the Wilderpeople, director Taika Waititi discussed why he chose Thompson for the role:

“Right from the start we wanted to diversify the cast, and it’s hard when you’re working with Vikings. [Laughs.] You want to be more inclusive and provide a broader representation. And at that point, you have to look at the source material as a very loose inspiration. And then take it from there and go with your gut. Say, “You know what? None of that stuff matters. Just because the character was blonde and white in the comic book. That doesn’t matter. That’s not what [that character] is about.

People forget that. Die-hard fans will say, “That’s not really authentic to the comics,” but as soon as they watch the movie, and they’re involved in the story, and actually what’s happening, everybody forgets. The fact that we even have to keep having this conversation is ridiculous, because we keep forgetting. Unless it’s the topic of the film, it just shouldn’t even be — what do we even care? I think the story is king, and you want the best person for the job. And Tessa tested against — we cast a very broad net, and Tess was the best person.”

Seriously, read it, it’s brilliant.


The win-all or lose-all financial proposition of Kickstarter pretty much fits my personality, [Laughs]. I borrow the notion of "jumping out of a plane without a parachute and figure out how to land on the way down.” I’ve taken more than my share of risks in the last years; some have worked out to my benefit and others haven’t, but that’s life in general. Nothing is guaranteed, and betting on yourself is a worthy investment. I say try to put it all out there. It’s scary, sure, but I believe everything a person wants in life is usually on the other side of fear, and if you’re too scared, if you can’t beat fear, then I say still do it, just do it scared.“

Well, you know, Emily [Bett Rickards] is just the dearest friend. I’ve been blessed in my career to work with amazing people playing my children, and she is certainly up there at the top of the list. She is just a delight. I think she really brings just a great, fresh energy to the show. It can be a pretty cold world, and she appears just like a ray of sunshine and hope, both as a person and as a character.
