++ Alicia Vikander has been cast as Lara Croft in the new Tomb Raider film franchise reboot. I know some were banking on Daisy Ridley or even Alycia Debnam-Carey, but I'm pleased with this announcement. I think she's a wonderful actress and I can totally see her portraying Lara.
++ I may be going to a local Wizard World Comic Con in June, mostly because it's relatively very close to where I live. So far the only people I want to see is Jewel Staite and Hayley Atwell. I don't think I'll do anything extravagant aside from going to their panels, especially since scheduling is subject to change at any given point between now and then. I haven't returned to the convention scene since attending Dracon*Con in 2011, but I've always wanted to and this is the closest opportunity I'll get since it's in my hometown.
