Remember the scene above from Return Of The Jedi? Where Princess Leia wins the undying friendship and loyalty of the Ewok Wicket by sharing a….I think it’s a rice cake, but no doubt bigger Nerds than me know exactly what foodstuff brokered the eventual military alliance between the Ewoks and the Rebellion.
Anyhoo, Star Wars fans in Germany at Celebration 2 were treated to a live performance of the classic scene courtesy of the very actors who brought us the original: Carrie Fisher as Princess Leia Organa, and Warwick Davis as Wicket W. Warrick.
Check out the immensely entertaining video below….though to be perfectly honest, when I heard Carrie Fisher was re-enacting a classic scene from ROTJ, something else came to mind 😉
So how does Stan Lee, arguably the father of the modern superhero genre, feel about the persistent rumor that Spider-Man is going to be revealed as bisexual in the comics?
He’s becoming bisexual? Who have you been talking to? I don’t know…Seriously, I don’t know anything about that. And if it’s true, I’m gonna make a couple of phone calls. I figure one sex was enough for everybody!
These were Lee‘s words when the subject was broached in the discussion shown below. Now, Lee‘s comments drew quite a bit of laughter, so it’s possible it was all a crafty imitation of a crusty, curmudgeony geezer who would overreact to such news–Stan‘s a savvy old dude 😉
His punchline: “I figure one sex was enough for everybody!” is telling, as it sounds like a deliberate misunderstanding of bisexuality for the sake of humor.
He also had this to say when asked his opinion of Amazing Spider-Man star Andrew Garfield:
Oh, I think Andy Garfield is great as Spider-Man, absolutely great, In fact, I would have picked him for the first Spider-Man movie if he had volunteered.
No one asked the implied question of whether this means he believes Garfield‘s Spidey is superior to Tobey Maguire’s, so we’re left wondering….
A new video and pics have come to us today of The Killing star Joel Kinnaman as Officer Alex Murphy in the upcoming Robocop remake. This is the best look we’ve had yet of the new Robocop on set in Vancouver:
Along with Kinnaman in the title role, Robocop stars Gary Oldman, Samuel L. Jackson, Michael Kenneth Williams, Jennifer Ehle, Jay Baruchel and Abbie Cornish. It’s due in theatres February 2014.
