Hey DC, I would watch this movie: rob-anybody tumblr Follow broadlybrazen unpretty another dumb headcanon: superman is nice to birds because of course he is, and helps out birds who are in distress. also he can fly around with them. birds see a lot more of superman than they do of most people, basically. the unexpected consequence of this is that the crows of metropolis recognize superman as a friend. sometimes crows just follow him around like a weird flock or try to give him shiny things. but mostly please just imagine luthor trying to gloat while threatening superman with kryptonite only to have a crow steal it. or just, generally, lex luthor getting attacked by crows. if that does not improve your day i don't know what to tell you unpretty What is that? Superman followed the direction of Batman's gaze. A crow had landed on the rooftop beside them, and dropped a bottlecap near Superman's feet. "Ohl Hey Francis. Is that for me?" Caw," said Francis Do you have a pet crow? Batman asked. No, I don't have pets," Superman said as he bent down to retrieve the bottlecap You named it. Not this specific one," Superman explained. "1 just call all the crows Francis. ...why Caw, caw," said Francis with a flap of its wings I don't know. Just calling them 'crow felt rude after a while. l'd name them individually but I can't actually tell them apart. Except for Old Francis and One Eyed Francis." Superman tucked the bottlecap into a small pocket on the back of his pants. Why Francis?" Superman shrugged. It's gender neutral. I don't want to misgender them just because they're birds Of course you don't," Batman sighed, looking back out at Metropolis Caw," Francis added Do you keep dog treats in your utility belt?" Superman asked Why would I do that. .. in case you meet a dog that needs to know he's a good boy? Superman suggested. Batman shook his head, but opened a small pouch on his belt and held out a small treat. "See, it was a yes or no question, I don't know why everything has to be such a production with you," Superman said as he took it. He tossed it over by the bird's feet. "Here you are, Francis. Keep up the good work." Caw, caw," Francis said. When it realized no more treats were forthcoming, it flew away in a fiutter of black wings. You're unbelievable," Batman said, shaking his head again. Superman took his eyes off the departing crow to look back at Batman, and frowned. "You know," he said, "it's really weird seeing you in costume during the day Don't start." It's like seeing your teacher at the mall." Don't think I won't take care of Poison Ivy without your help, if I have to Superman shrugged. T'm just saying voxmyriad But...what if the crows also recognized him as Clark Kent? This mild-mannered reporter who doesn't seem to do anything in particular to the crows that would make them like him, but they're not afraid of him at all, and they keep trying to give HIM things, and Clark being a nice guy, he just. Accepts the bottlecap. Says thank you. Keeps walking. Lois adds another factoid to her "Weird Stuff About Clark Kent" file Maybe he tries to convince his coworkers that everyone is friendly with crows in Smallville. That the farmers discovered how smart crows are and decided to make friends with them instead of chasing them off Maybe he tries to talk the crows into palling around with him as Superman but going their separate ways as Clark Kent. Please imagine Superman on top of a building holding Clark Kent's glasses and trying to explain the concept of a secret identity to a flock of attentive birds Source: unpretty #my favorite post #dc universe #my superman 32,061 notes Hey DC, I would watch this movie

He is Aragorn, son of Arathorn. You owe him your allegiance.: neuxue Okay I know we always go on about Marvel's uncanny casting ability But if you thought they were the only ones, let me draw your attention to this man Viggo Mortensen, aka Aragorn son of Arathorn Earth would hike, often for more than a day, to remote filming locations, in costume, for the sake of authenticity was the best swordsman Bob Anderson (swordsmaster/instructor for LotR, Pirates of the Caribbean, etc) says he has ever trained occasionally writes poetry (more book!canon than film!canon but um hello) . does all his own stunts lived all over and speaks about 23940209384 languages you know that scene at the end of Fellowship when he's fighting the Uruk- hai? And one throws a dagger at him and he hits it away with his sword? Yeah, the guy who threw it was supposed to miss, but accidentally threw it directly at Viggo. Who just casually Aragorned and hit it away They actually cast Aragorn to play Aragorn obtrta Can I just add a few things? Would randomly give chocolates to the hobbits According to John Rhys-Davis (aka Gimli), whenever you have a large cast, one or two actors will naturally become the leaders. Guess who ended up in that role Single-handedly convinced cast and crew to camp out to shoot a scene in the sunrise Once hit a wild rabbit with his car by accident. Promptly stopped his car and went to see if the rabbit was dead, needed a vet or if the only merciful thing to do was to finish killing him. The rabbit was dead. Viggo realized he was hungry. So he took the rabbit, made a fire by the roadside and ate it. According to cast and crew, sometimes you'd just see him disappear in the middle of the night and suddenly he'd come back with fish he'd caught Had his sword with him at all times. Slept with once . The best horse rider of the cast, hands down. Rides better than lots of pros, according to a horse trainer. Couldn't bear to part with his horse at the end of the shooting, so he bough him. The next movie of his also involved horses, and he bought his horse in that one, too Knows how to survive in the wild. I'm not kidding Hand-stitched a few things in his costume for an authentic "l live away from civilization" Ranger feel. Also told the weapons department to make him a small bow because "Aragorn lives in the wild, he needs a hunting bow, or he'll starve to death- literally nobody else had thought about that Also requested a small stone to sharpen his sword. Suggested that Aragorn would take Boromir's arm guards after his death. Speaking of hand-stitching, once he was touring Japan with a reporter for an article. Walked into a store, took a tshirt, bought it, cut off the print and hand-stitched it into the hat he was wearing. The reporter was going "?????????" the entire time o Peter Jackson literally sometimes called him Aragorn by accident mybrainrots Reblogging to add that Viggo wasn't their first choice. They were already into filming when they realized whoever they had cast was not the right choice. How lucky did they get that Viggo was available on no notice? spectralarchers The original actor they cast as Aragorn was Stuart Townsend, and a day before shooting began, they realized he was too young for the role When Peter Jackson called up Viggo Mortensen to ask, Viggo didn't answer at first and said he'd call the next day to give his answer. When he asked his son Henry about it, Henry told him to take the job as Henry was a big fan of the series Henry went on to cameo as an orc in the Pelenor battle earinafae I didn't think I could love this man anymore, but here I go He is Aragorn, son of Arathorn. You owe him your allegiance.
