This rivalry’s heating up.
DC vs. Marvel (via)
YES. FUCKING YES.
ALL THE YES
This is the reason I’m not too keen on DC, and why I adore Marvel, perfectly summed up and I didn’t even realize it until I read it.
I’m Johnny Bacardi and I approve this message.
If Hannibal meets Mads.

Did you have to do any special fight training to prep for it?
- Yeah, yeah. They put me in training with this guy Master Hu in L.A., actually, a few weeks before I flew out to set. He’s a master of Wushu, which is an acrobatic martial art. We used these really long bamboo sticks, and he started teaching me the basics, the possibilities of moves in a fight, stuff like that, and it’s a lot of twisting of the body while propelling a spear around. And I’d go to practice on my own. I bought a curtain rod from Home Depot, and I had this empty apartment, because I just got this lease on a new apartment in Los Angeles. I’ve lived in New York for most of my adult life, but I was doing the L.A. thing more and more. So I had all this space to learn this one particular move of helicoptering the spear and getting it to make this whooshing noise. [Laughs] So I practiced that in the empty apartment and whacked myself in the face quite a bit. [Laughs]
Paprika (Satoshi Kon, 2006), Inception (Christopher Nolan, 2010).
Thanks to nazchow for providing the idea.
I had seen Paprika years before Inception and it struck me how much more inventive the dream world was in Kon’s film versus Inception.
