the best cast in the universe

one word spells

As long as you can focus your energy and set your intention your spell should work, so I’ve designed these 5 spells using just one word for a Witch who needs a quick fix.


Pronounced mar-e-quil

Used to calm a temper or an upset person. From the latin word for sea, mare, and the english word tranquil. Essentially you are calling the sea inside them to be still. For better results cast with wet hands.


Pronounced Uni-var

Used for faster transport. I use it at the train station to have a shorter wait time but really its designed for traffic lights. By combining uni from universe and vert,the french word for green, you’re essentially asking the universe to make your path green.


Pronounced Vis-e-did-en

Used to go unnoticed or invisible. Taken from the english words vision and hidden. For best results chant it softly while visualising yourself turning transparent.


Pronounced Lap-ag-na

Used when you just need someone to shut the f**k up but are too polite to say so. Taken from the Latin words lapis and magna, meaning stone and voice. For best results hold a stone or some earth while casting, if they’re really pissing you off just throw the stone or dirt at them.


pronounced Bav-are-ig-ni

Used to strike up a conversation or to continue a conversation. Taken from the French word bavarder, which means chat, and the Latin word ignis, which means fire. Basically you’re asking for the conversation to spark or catch fire. For best results flick a lighter in your pocket or light a match.

Warner and DC To Split in 2019

For 30 years since Tim Burton’s 1989 Batman film, Warner Bros. had a hand in every major DC Comics property film. That relationship will officially come to an end with 2019′s The Batman, the last film starring Ben Affleck in the role.

This comes as a surprise despite murmurs of fan dissatisfaction with the current DC cinematic universe. According to DC CEO Denise Sieyo, “Warner did an amazing job with DC films but we need to start fresh. The current wave of this cinematic universe will be completed, and then we’ll move on.” This news means the cancellation of several films including Suicide Squad 2, Cyborg, and The Green Lantern Corps.

The move comes after a harsh year of fan discontent, with millions taking to the internet to berate choices such as the casting of Ben Affleck, the dark tone of Zack Snyder’s visions for the Justice League, and the Suicide Squad movie, which did well at the box office and even won an Oscar for Best Makeup, but was critically loathed and saw many fans aghast. The move is mutual according to Warner CEO and last surviving Warner brother Brian Hugh Warner.

More surprising is the upcoming DC plan. Having left Warner, the comic superpower will team up with its next studio: Marvel Studios. Said Sieyo, “Marvel has been doing pretty well and we thought, hey, why not just turn it over to them?” The move has shocked comic fans globally, but executives for both companies claim the move will mark the dawn of a new era in comic cinema. With Marvel fully taking over the creative direction of the DC universe, producers are confident that the next DC film world will focus more on fun and entertainment, rather than the more serious films to date. Stan Lee will also provide cameos for DC Universe films, and a crossover between the Justice League and the Avengers is already in early stages of development.

“It will be a huge undertaking with a budget of over $350 Million dollars,” said Marvel Studios head Mark Sussudio, “And it will need to have an amazing classic of a villain to fight both the Justice League and the Avengers at the same time. Thankfully, our parent company also owns the rights to Star Wars. That’s right.”

Avengers v Justice League v Darth Vader: Dawn of the Guardians of the Galaxy Far Far Away Part 1: Mirror of Fate is planned for a March 2023 release.

10:15a.m. – 11:45a.m. Hilton Bayfront – Indigo Ballroom

The series cast and musical minds behind Steven Universe will give a never-before-seen performance of the series’ critically-acclaimed music, as well as exclusive previews from upcoming episodes and an extended Q&A. Scheduled to appear: Rebecca Sugar (Creator), Jeff Liu (Writer and Storyboard Artist), Zach Callison (Voice of Steven), Estelle (Voice of Garnet), Michaela Dietz (Voice of Amethyst), Deedee Magno Hall (Voice of Pearl), Ben Levin (Writer), Jeff Ball (Violinist), accompanied by series composers Aivi Tran and Steven “Surasshu” Velema. Moderated by former supervising director Ian Jones-Quartey.



I watched the premiere of this from FX tonight. If you’re unfamiliar with the material, Legion is an extremely powerful mutant from the Marvel X-Men universe—a mutant who is also mentally ill. He first appeared in The New Mutants and was created by Chris Claremont and Bill Sienkiewicz. The cast includes Dan Stevens, Aubrey Plaza, Rachel Keller, Jean Smart, and Bill Irwin. The show was created by, executive produced, and written by Noah Hawley, who also worked on Fargo, Bones, and The Unusuals among other things. One of the best things about the show is the music!

It’s in-bloody-credible. I can’t wait for more. Find this.

anonymous asked:

do you think we'll ever get to hear jasper sing?

totally feasible! her VA has a musical theatre background, she was planning to be a singer once. i know some have expressed concern about her jasper-voice, but like… y’all. do not underestimate the power of kimberly brooks. she’s easily one of the most vocally talented cast members, with the best range. i mean. i talked about this with a pal earlier this week - this is her normal voice. 

Dark Days Ahead

Kicking off a massive event this summer, The New York Times best-selling writers Scott Snyder (ALL-STAR BATMAN) and James Tynion IV (DETECTIVE COMICS) collaborate with iconic artists Andy Kubert (DARK KNIGHT III: THE MASTER RACE), Jim Lee (SUICIDE SQUAD) and John Romita Jr. (ALL-STAR BATMAN) for DARK DAYS: THE FORGE #1 and DARK DAYS: THE CASTING #1.

Spearheaded by Snyder, these new stories will reveal the dark underbelly of the DC Universe. The mysteries of THE FORGE and THE CASTING will hit shelves on June 14 and July 12, respectively, and break new ground in DC’s publishing line.

“Art like this demands an epic story,” says Snyder. “DARK DAYS posits a mystery that traces all the way back to when I started on BATMAN. I’ve hinted at them over the years with Easter eggs and clues. This is a mystery that literally begins at the dawn of man and spans generations of heroes and villains and ultimately leads to huge revelations about the past, present and future of the cosmology of DC. I couldn’t be more excited for DARK DAYS. It’s the prelude to the event we’ve been developing for years.”

“We’re taking all the ethos and excitement of the work Scott and I have been doing in the Batman titles and unleashing it across the entire DC Universe,” adds Tynion IV. “The size and scope of what we’re looking to do with DARK DAYS could only be accomplished by the best of the best. Andy, Jim and John are legends. All of us on this project are pushing one another, and every concept, to the extreme.”

Why I Love Steven Universe

Can we talk about how much I love Steven Universe?! And completely putting aside how awesome the actual show is, let’s talk about the diversity for a second.

¾ of the main cast are actors of color!

Estelle as Garnet

Michael Dietz as Amethyst

Deedee Magno as Pearl

AND one of the four main characters (and really the best one, IMO) is a black woman with a badass afro!


WHO IS ALSO not just queer, but is the embodiment and personification of the lesbian relationship between two characters.

Ruby and Sapphire (yes, I know gems are technically genderless, but they identify/present as women and use she/her and ultimately that’s what the audience sees, so it’s still important queer female representation)

Whose voice actors are also women of color

Charlyne Yi (Ruby) and Erica Luttrell (Sapphire)

And there’s definitely some Les Yay/implied romantic feelings between Pearl and Rose Quartz, if one-sided (Pearl).

Rose and Pearl fuse into Rainbow Quartz

Actually, a lot of the fusions are incredibly Les Yay:

Garnet and Amethyst fuse into Sugilite

And there are so many side characters of color:

The Fish Stew Pizza Family

Mr Smiley

And so many great guest stars of color:

Godfrey (Kofi Pizza)

Reagan Gomez-Preston (Jenny Pizza)

Toks Olagundoye (Nanefua Pizza)

Sinbad (Mr. Smiley)

Matthew Moy (Lars)

Kimberly Brooks (Jasper)

And one amazing mega superstar of color as a very memorable character:

Nicki Minaj (Sugilite)

AND Steven’s love interest is an Indian-American girl

Connie Maheswaren

All of this is just to say how nice it is to look at a cast and character list and see such diversity. And the show is just so freaking spectacular. It really stands in stark comparison to those projects where characters are whitewashed and the casting director throws out the old “we hired the best person for the job” line and it’s some bland white person who can’t act themselves out of a paper bag.

YAY Steven Universe, and YAY Rebecca Sugar the FIRST WOMAN to create a show for Cartoon Network (and she’s not even 30 yet!)!

Let’s get real: Kilgrave is the best super villain ever. Not just in TV, or the MCU, but the greatest super villain ever put to screen. Three main reasons:

Firstly, the actor. On paper, casting David ‘Greatest Human Ever‘ Tennant as a villain seems like a really bad idea. Especially considering his most famous role is the Doctor, one of the most famous heroes in science fiction.

But holy shit, Tennant is scary as hell as Kilgrave. Mostly because that effortless charm, likability and elegance he brings to every role is present here as well. No matter how much you force yourself to always hate Kilgrave, you will find yourself feeling sorry for him. You will find yourself wondering if there is more to Kilgrave than just his self serving nature would imply.

Only for the show to remind you that he’s a sociopathic asshole, and then you realize Kilgrave isn’t just manipulating the characters in the show, he’s also manipulating you!

Secondly, his powers: There a lot of villains who can kill you in gruesome and terrifying ways. But Kilgrave does something far more terrifying. He can make you kill yourself. Or just cut off a limb. Or murder your entire family. Hell, god knows how many people he’s raped outside of Jessica and Hope.

And you can’t fight it. Whatever he tells you to do, no questions, no resistance, you just obey. That’s more than disturbing. That’s dehumanizing.

Thirdly, and most importantly, Kilgrave feels real: For me, the close runners up for best super villain are Wilson Fisk from Daredevil and the Joker. But they both represent ideas. Fisk is absolute order, Joker is absolute anarchy. Both terrifying in their own ways. But both are the kind of people you know aren’t real, but the thought of them potentially being real is scary.

Kilgrave however, he is real. Maybe not with those mind control powers, but he exists. Odds are, you’ve met someone like him. Someone who’s selfish, entitled, uncaring of others, obsessive, manipulative. Kilgrave may just be a comic book villain, but he’s a personification of every ‘nice guy‘, every stalker, , every self serving dick you either have met or will meet at some point.


I think Melanie Martinez would be a good actress for Harley Quinn…

I’m peeling the skin off my face
‘Cause I really hate being safe
The normal’s, they make me afraid
The crazies, they make me feel sane

I’m nuts, baby, I’m mad,
The craziest friend that you’ve ever had
You think I’m psycho, you think I’m gone
Tell the psychiatrist something is wrong
Over the bend, entirely bonkers
You like me best when I’m off my rocker
Tell you a secret, I’m not alarmed
So what if I’m crazy? The best people are
All the best people are crazy, all the best people are 

~Mad Hatter, Melanie  Martinez
