Today's Fanboy Delusion

 Today I'd rather be... 

... flicking off Thor's disguise.

And yes like Zeus I too would flick too hard.

The new Thor: Love and Thunder trailer popped up last night and I assume any of you who wanted to watch it have gone and watched it already -- I do hate it when they drop things at night! I am not an all-nights-and-weekends kinda blogger, man! I need my me-time, by which I mean my "floor watching X-Files" time. All blogging and no Scully makes Jason a dull, dull boy. Anyway here's the trailer if you also try to have some semblance of life in this 24-7 media-saturated hellscape:

Besides Chris Hemsworth's blurred out little booty the big reveal in this trailer is the movie's villain played by Christian Bale, who appears to be summoning up some "Pale Man" from Guillermo Del Toro's Pan's Labyrinth if you ask me...

... that was my first thought when watching it last night anyway -- looking at it now I see some of the Crawlers from The Descent and I guess maybe Hades from Disney's Hercules movie (although there I have to admit I have still never seen that Hercules). Anyway he's making for a pasty scrawny flip-side to Thor's Golden God, so visually this is all working for me. We will see on July 8th!

I bet it’s gonna show it. 🤞😋

There will be laughs, woahs, whistles and cheers. And feminists screaming, “Yes! Objectification equality!”.
( Though I do have a little fetish for a cute little embarrassment scene.)

Looks like a great movie bedsides that! July 8 can’t come soon enough.

Clearly they are starting to get desperate with these comic book films.
