Why did Stan Lee make a cameo in The Princess Diaries 2? Was this foreshadowing Disney buying Marvel? Is Princess Mia going to be an Avenger? So many questions
In case you though I was joking
My dream for The Avengers: Age of Ultron is that it starts out with each of the Avengers getting a call early in the morning that they need to come in, and when they get to Clint, they’re like, “We still don’t have Romanoff’s new location, so if you have a way of contacting her, pass the message to her as well.” Clint replies, “I’ll see if I can track her down,” and hangs up the phone. Then he rolls over in bed and is like, “Hey Nat, get up, they need us.”
okay no but lily actually heard james die. like she heard him fighting voldemort and she heard a thump as his body hit the ground and she knew for a brief moment that no matter what happened next james was dead. she knew that even if by some miracle she and harry made it out alive the love of her life, her best friend was dead and oh god my heart is breaking
I find this image accompanies this quite well (x)
nO IT DOESN’T
Friendly reminder that Dean is canonically amazing in bed
I just realized that Dean was a mere 21 years old when he earned the title of “Best night of my life Dean”

I was re-watching The Avengers recently and something occurred to me that I hadn’t thought of before.
You know how people have criticized Joss Whedon’s characterization of Cap? They felt he was written too brusque, too harsh and unlikable for such a charismatic character.
Well, I just realized that those scenes were all written as a counterpoint to the deleted Steve Rogers scenes that were originally meant to frame the movie.
From the beginning of TS the scenes we see feature Cap, not Steve. Sure, Steve is the one frustratedly destroying punching bags, but then Fury shows up to talk to “Cap” and that’s the last we really see of Steve Rogers. When he’s meeting Coulson, Bruce, and Natasha, he’s Cap. When he’s fighting with Loki, when he’s sniping at Tony, all the way to the end of the movie, he’s Captain America. There’s little glimpses of Steve sass - “it seems to run on some kind of electricity” - but Cap does have a sense of humor, he just doesn’t allow himself to falter or show weakness. And in this instance, that comes off as kind of prickly or dour and overbearing.
But think back to the deleted scenes. Those were just Steve. Steve Rogers alone, drifting around New York. Moodily sketching in a café, riding the subway seemingly separate, not really a part of the world around him . Those scenes had a sense of melancholy, showing him not really acclimating to what he’d lost or the future he found himself in. Of course he threw himself into Captaining full force - it’s the one thing he knows he can do.
Since these scenes were meant to be Steve’s real introduction to the TS audience, it’s no wonder that the Cap scenes that made the cut make him seem a little one-note and martinet-ish. They were written to offset the “softer side of Steve” the audience had already met. We were supposed to empathize with Steve from the beginning, but thanks to the cutting room floor, we didn’t get to really see that guy - just Cap being Cap.
So basically Whedon wrote a more balanced Steve Rogers into the film, but sort of sabotaged his characterization when the framing of the film changed direction in editing. And I agree that the original script would probably have come off a bit too maudlin for a big summer action movie. But some of those scenes really should have been worked into the finished film somehow, just for Steve Rogers’ sake.
Because the reason a lot of people weren’t so enthused or impressed with Captain America in The Avengers is because they were never really introduced to Steve Rogers at all.

“In 2002, having spent more than three years in one residence for the first time in my life, I got called for jury duty. I show up on time, ready to serve. When we get to the voir dire, the lawyer says to me, “I see you’re an astrophysicist. What’s that?” I answer, “Astrophysics is the laws of physics, applied to the universe—the Big Bang, black holes, that sort of thing.” Then he asks, “What do you teach at Princeton?” and I say, “I teach a class on the evaluation of evidence and the relative unreliability of eyewitness testimony.” Five minutes later, I’m on the street.
A few years later, jury duty again. The judge states that the defendant is charged with possession of 1,700 milligrams of cocaine. It was found on his body, he was arrested, and he is now on trial. This time, after the Q&A is over, the judge asks us whether there are any questions we’d like to ask the court, and I say, “Yes, Your Honor. Why did you say he was in possession of 1,700 milligrams of cocaine? That equals 1.7 grams. The ‘thousand’ cancels with the ‘milli-’ and you get 1.7 grams, which is less than the weight of a dime.” Again I’m out on the street.”

“I teach a class on the evaluation of evidence and the relative unreliability of eyewitness testimony.” Five minutes later, I’m on the street.
This is a good illustration of what’s wrong with the US criminal justice system.
I’m more struck by the second anecdote, in which he was evidently disqualified from jury duty for displaying the ability to do math.
