It's the fifth Friday of July kids.
According to my calendar that also means tonight we have a Full Thunder Moon.
It's not as apocalyptic as it sounds.
Of course, it also sounds like Thor might just fly overhead dropping trou.
Maybe I need to cut back on my MCU consumption a little bit.
Maybe, but not yet.
Not until we discuss this week's rumor and how it relates to the lovely lady up top.
Please say hello, AGAIN, to Rachel McAdams.
Ms. McAdams is suddenly everywhere.
She's the most compelling part of the new season of True Detective.
She's starring opposite Jake Gylennhall in Southpaw.
And, earlier this week, she confirmed that she's in discussions with Marvel to co-star opposite Benedict Cumberbatch in the forthcoming Doctor Strange movie.
The early money had her as Clea, but this week's rumor du jour is that she'll be playing Night Nurse.
This also potentially puts Ms. McAdams in the unique position of having starred opposite both recent big budget, big screen iterations of Sherlock Holmes (Holmeses? Holmesi?). It would, potentially, be interesting to have her compare and contrast there individual Holmesiness (Holmesosity? Holmesittude?)
Too bad she wasn't Tauriel in the Hobbit movies. Then we could throw Ian McKellen and Magneto into the mix.
Just for the record, the Ms. McAdams and Sir Ian have a Bacon Number of 2.
I looked it up so you didn't have to.
