An actress wearing a costume that may or may not bear striking similarities to that of Lady Sif’s, has appeared beneath Tom Hiddleston’s armpit. Am I batshit crazy? Possibly. But let’s not worry about that right now… Continue reading

Generally, we could safely expect that much of the hilariously cheesy, outlandishly weird and at times, batshit crazy comic panels of the 80’s and 90’s would be taken with a grain of salt by the folks who are involved in the whole movie making process.
