First official look at Idris Elba as the Gunslinger

in the The Dark Tower  movie (via


The Dark Tower series tells the story of Roland Deschain, Mid-World’s last gunslinger, who is traveling southeast across Mid-World’s post-apocalyptic landscape, searching for the powerful but elusive magical edifice known as The Dark Tower. Located in the fey region of End-World, amid a sea of singing red roses, the Dark Tower is the nexus point of the time-space continuum. It is the heart of all worlds, but it is also under threat. Someone, or something, is using the evil technology of the Great Old Ones to destroy it.

In Roland’s where and when, the world has already begun to move on. Time and direction are in drift, and the fabric of reality is fraying. However, things are about to get much worse.

Diversity in the modern world is more than just skin color – It’s gender, age, disability, sexual orientation, social background, and – most important of it, in my opinion – is diversity of thought. If you have genuine diversity of thought among people making TV & film, then you won’t accidentally shut out any of the groups I just mentioned.

Idris Elba (via celebritiesofcolor)

The Daily Bugle crew aren’t appearing (as far as I can tell) in The Amazing Spider-Man 2, but if they were here’s who I’d want them to be:

J Jonah Jameson: Peter Capaldi w/ moustache
Joe ‘Robbie’ Robertson: Idris Elba
Betty Brant: Rinko Kikuchi
Glory Grant: Freema Agyeman
Ned Leeds (nice one, Spectacular Spider-Man): John Cho
