Mount Rushmore of Marvel Beards
M.Brown over at Two Dollar Cinema is hosting his wonderful Mount Rushmore of Movies blogathon again! Here are the rules in his own words:
I'd like to have all posts done by Friday, March 2nd (where I'll create a master list, linking back to all of your, er, both of your sites), but it's cool if you finish way before that. Or later. I honestly don't mind.
Send me a heads up/steamy nude pic on twitter @twodollarcinema , reply in the comments below, text me, e-mail me (email@example.com), fart in my general direction, whatever you want, when you've finished, okay? That would be mighty kind of you.
In your post, please use the rad banner my wife designed when she should have been working.
Share the announcement with every single person you've ever met. Or being that we're all bloggers, you're digital friends.
Be awesome. And if you're here, already know that you are anyway.
When I first saw the announcement, I saved the link with the subtitle (beards) because I keep things simple like that. My week has been hectic, so it's now Thursday evening as I write this and Mettel Ray already chose her Mt. Rushmore of Sam Rockwell beards. But it's late, I'm drained, and it's too late to change. I did do a bit of a theme within a theme, so I bring to you -
The Mount Rushmore of Marvel Beards
Idris Elba - Thor: Ragnarok: It doesn't take much for Idris Elba to look hot. The reason I went with Ragnarok specifically is we finally see him without his helmet and that beard has that sexy touch of grey.
Robert Downey Jr - Captain America: Civil War: You have to give Tony Stark some props, the guy spends a decent amount of time manscaping. So why is his beard hotter in someone else's movie? Simple. Because he's emotionally compromised the entire time. That vulnerability, plus the fact that RDJ is a bit older makes it hotter.
Chris Hemsworth - Thor: Ragnarok: Another Ragnarok pick, but the beards are just too beautiful. Thor was already scruffing it a bit before Hela dumps him on another planet where his hair get cut and he's thrown into a gladiator pit. Thankfully they left his face alone. Thor needs to keep this look from now on.
Chris Evans - Avengers: Infinity War Yes, I'm choosing a movie that hasn't aired yet, why? BECAUSE IT'S MY MOUNT RUSHMORE AND LOOK AT CHRIS EVANS! Evans is sexy as fuck and normally had a beard when he's not filming a Cap movie. But this year, we finally get to see Cap with that beard! No matter who dies in Infinity War, it can't possibly be as devastating as it will be if he shaves that thing off.
Bonus: Bucky's got dat scruff too.
So does M'Baku in Black Panther, but I couldn't find a gif that properly shows it.
Thanks for hosting, Mario!
