Marvel fans aren’t pleased with the twist in Captain America: Steve Rogers #1.
By now you know that Steve Rogers is revealed to be a Hydra agent in the first issue of the new Captain America: Steve Rogers series (Read our in-depth analysis of the new issue here). Naturally this news — that ultimate do-gooder Cap would be so evil — has not sat well with fans.
The general consensus is that this shit is unacceptable…
Emilia Clarke proves there is more to Dothraki than death threats in a recent appearance on Late Night With Seth Meyers.
Clarke, who plays the indomitable Daenerys Targaryen on HBO’s Game of Thrones, sets Meyers straight on the fact that Dothraki is, in fact, a real language created for the show. Linguist David J. Peterson crafted Dothraki, and all of the other fictional languages used on Game of Thrones — but even after six seasons, his words present Clarke with a continual challenge.
“You get it in English, at the top in the first script, it’s like, ‘This will be in Dothraki,'” Clarke recounts of her learning process. Following English is the Dothraki speech, followed by a literal translation, and then finally the dialogue in spoken English.
“And then I get an MP3, and then my kitchen hears it for weeks and weeks and weeks on end, until I sound convincing,” Clarke says.
But given the opacity (and complete invention) of the Dothraki language, Emilia Clarke admits that there have been times when she replaced her lines with something a little more… interesting.
“With the latest marvelous actors we’ve had doing Dothraki with us, it was a long day,” Clarke admits, giggling. Not realizing that the camera was on her, Clarke allowed a moment of silliness to take over.
“I thought it would be funny if I did ‘MMMBop’ in Dothraki,” she says. “And that didn’t help him at all! And then I think some of that was definitely my take.”
Ever game, Clarke dives in to her rendition of the Hanson hit, translated into the language of the brutal horse lords.
“I can’t stress how much less catchy that is!” Meyers laughs.
Game of Thrones 6×06, “Blood of My Blood,” airs Sunday, May 29 at 9:00 p.m. on HBO.
Following news that Warner Bros. is planning an all female superhero movie featuring Harley Quinn, a new report states the studio is also looking at spinoffs for her fellow Suicide Squad teammates!
Fans of superhero movies are heavily anticipating the release of Suicide Squad this August, so it came as no surprise that Warner Bros. is already planning on a film featuring one of the Suicide Squad stars Harley Quinn as played by Margot Robbie.
A new report by We Got This Covered says that Warner Bros. is also looking at spinoffs for two other characters on the Suicide Squad team. The report teases, “They’re going to do a sequel for sure, and the recently announced spinoff with Margot Robbie has got everyone excited, too, but their plans don’t end there.”
So who will the other spinoffs reportedly feature? One is basically a no brainer: Jared Leto’s version of the Joker already has fans talking, though whether that’s a good thing or a bad thing remains to be seen. The actor definitely has big shoes to fill given how passionate fans are for the character and how loved Heath Ledger’s version of him was. It’s clear that Leto is going in a totally different direction, though, which could be great for Warner Bros. if fans end up falling in love with Leto’s version, too.
The report also states a second character they’re looking into: “They’re also really hot on Jai Courtney’s character Boomerang right now.” Boomerang definitely doesn’t have the built-in fan base like Harley Quinn and the Joker, so it’s an interesting move by Warner Bros. It will probably depend on the character’s reception in the film, but it could really pay off if it’s done right.
