Simon Pegg Teases A Role In A Marvel Movie. Internet Loses Its Blob.

Simon Pegg posted a few adorable photos of his trip to Marvel today. Any one of us can appreciate the following:

But then Pegg, cheeky monkey that he is, posted the following:

For the uninitiated, that’s Ant-Man that Pegg is subtly gesturing to. Now it’s already common knowledge that Edgar Wright will be directing the forthcoming Ant-Man film. And, to add fuel to that film nerd fire, Joe Cornish (Attack The Block) will be penning the script. So it’s going to be a geekstravaganza. And, of course, as soon as Wright’s name was mentioned as director, Pegg’s name was dropped as a would-be star. And, if we feel like being conspiracy theorists, that’s what Simon’s little winking gesture confirms. However, Pegg is on record as saying the following:

“I don’t know - I don’t think I’d want to play Ant-Man. I think it would be more fun to play a villain in that thing. I’d like to play a villain. But no, they’re going to want some good-looking young American. That’s a Marvel movie - funny-looking British actors don’t play a big part in that unless they’re bad.”

I don’t know, what do you think, could this funny-looking Brit pull it off?

Joanna Robinson is wondering when Tim Bisley started wearing quite so much jewelry.

Here's some Daveed Diggs for you. On Daveed Diggs' digs, actually. That man does things with clothes that should not make sense, but are absolutely perfect. (Go Fug Yourself)

Woody Allen has "so moved on" from his daughter's accusations and says he never even thinks about it. He equates her words about him to a bad review he won't read and comments on how wacky it is that Mia Farrow is his mother-in-law. He is the worst. (Celebitchy)

Not The Worst but still very gross: Leonardo DiCaprio and his Pussy Posse Wolf Pack were on the douche prowl in NYC. (Lainey)

Here are 5 under-the-radar shows. I had never even heard of the first two. (Uproxx)
