Out of all the Marvel superheros, Thor is my favorite. He’s the God of Thunder for goodness sakes, how can he not be? And so… I had to make it down to the Thor: The Dark World premiere. Hello? What’s a fanboy to do?
The Other Mike was here and I settled into my spot. The carpet wasn’t all that exciting but it’s Thor so I was stoked for some goodness today. Sigh…
After lunch I hung out, chatted with Ace who was running around, saw MTF Reader Joe, Billy Beer arrived on the scene coming in late from a flight, and I spotted this odd piece of graffiti. What a sad use of a silver sharpie.
Finally, you could feel the tension in the air and the body heat once the premiere was getting closer. There were so many people, the girls in the back bum rushed a few peoples spots, there was fighting, oh, it was just kind of crazy.
Okay, it looks like the carpet was gearing up. We are packed in like sardines and everyone smells not so fresh! The carpet is jumping and there are tons of people milling about seemingly aimlessly.
It’s the first arrival… Tadanobu Asano. We yell, we scream, we plead… And… Nothing… Damn… Not boding well at all..
Jaimie Alexander is here now… She comes over and starts to sign… She’s skipping around a lot. She looks amazing… My fear is that we’re too far down… Sigh…
Jaimie barely makes it down to us and I get her on my poster but that’s it. Doh!
Director Alan Taylor is here. He comes on over and signs for pretty much the entire line. Super cool.
Some Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. people are here now including Clark Gregg…
They are very cool and come on over..
Oh wait there’s Zachary Levi. He’s always been super nice and today is no exception. He takes photos, chats, etc… I got him on one of my mini posters.
Oh dear… Tom Hiddleston is here… The screaming is 500 women dressed like Loki wailing. Doh. Tom starts at the other end and tries to cover as much ground as he can…
But… It’s not looking good…. Yep… He’s getting pulled… Damn! We missed him.
Stan Lee is here now… And… He’s signing way too far down… Frakk… Billy and I missed him… Because he didn’t get near us… Sad times.
Anthony Hopkins is here… He’s heading to the carpet even though we keep yelling for him… Oh fuck, he’s signing at the other end… Grrrrrrr…
Kat Dennings is here… She’s always been so nice, every time I’ve seen her…
She starts and the end and heads down… I got her on a couple mini posters and my Two Broke Girls DVD cover.
I’m going to give the DVD to my sister for Christmas.
Liam Hemsworth is here.
Oh, and there’s Chris. He starts at one end and signs and signs and signs away. Security is being super dumb and is knocking down everyone in the fronts stuff and letting the people in the back cover us. Ugh… Chris signs my Thor hammer as well as my concept art poster.
But let me tell you, the security made it a struggle. If it wasn’t for the security… this would have been so much easier. Sigh… Like what the hell man.
And that was it for arrivals for us. I debated a while, if I should wait for exits or head home. I’m still debating in fact. LOL… Chris Hemsworth took off after the carpet. I heard he had a flight to catch.
I ran into Big Mike and after chatting I ended up staying. People filed out and Tadanobu Asano was the first person we saw.
Finally, we got him to come over and I got him on the concept art poster.
Then Jaimie Alexander came over and signed. So nice. Big Mike helped me get an extra poster signed as well.
Tom Hiddleston, Anthony Hopkins, Stan Lee all left and didn’t sign.
Ray Stevenson was leaving and came over and signed up a storm. I got him on my two posters.
And that kids… Was that. It was a long long day and I’m not quite sure it was totally worth it, but my poster looks great and you know… I’m frakkin tired! LOL…
Until next time kids…
