Your Evening Linc: Randy Martinez Art, Marvel Movies, EW Features Doctor Who, Once Upon A Time Novel

Well, it's finally spring! Of course, nature didn't quite get the memo here in New York, but I can only hope that maybe its cell died. Nevertheless, here are some really cool stories from around the web just for you!

1. Randy Martinez Releases "Retire of the Jedi" Series of Prints

Star Wars artist and heck-of-a-nice guy Randy Martinez has released a series of prints in his "Retire of the Jedi" series. It's a hilarious take on what our heroes have been up to in their golden years. You can purchase the prints for $25 and see much much more on his site. See below for the elderly antics of our favorite Star Wars characters:

"I'm no good to me dead."
Randy Martinez
"Laugh it up, fuzzball....I said...LAUGH IT UP FUZZ- aahhh forget it!"
Randy Martinez
"Hey Lobot, did I ever tell you about my little maneuver at the Battle of Tanaab?"
"I believe I'm looking at it, sir."
Randy Martinez
"But I was going to Tosche Station to pick up some space Viagra!"

2. Reynolds, Stone, and Dinklage Dish On Their Respective Marvel Movies

Ryan Reynolds and Emma Stone sat down to talk about their upcoming animated film The Croods and, towards the end, were asked about Deadpool and The Amazing Spider-Man 2, respectively. Stone praises the script and Reynolds, unfortunately, does not see a movie about the witty anti-hero coming about any time soon. You can skip to around 4:18 for their comments:


Not to be outdone in the Marvel Non-Disclosure Contest, Peter Dinklage, the brilliant actor behind everyone's favorite Lannister in Game of Thrones, spoke briefly at a premiere for the show about his possible role in X-Men: Days of Future Past.

Get More: MTV Shows

For those of you that don't know, Bolivar Trask is the infamous creator of the mutant-hunting giant robots known as Sentinels. "Days of Future Past" is a seminal X-Men story in which the assassination of a senator is blamed on mutants, resulting in a dystopian future where mutants are forced into internment camps. The movie will see the casts of the original trilogy and X-Men: First Class unite through time to stop that future from coming true. Which of course is a perfect segue into:

3. Entertainment Weekly Celebrates 50 Years of Doctor Who

It looks like the Oncoming Storm has found his way onto the cover of Entertainment Weekly. The magazine, out this week, is celebrating all things Who: Doctors, companions, monsters, and more! They even feature an essay written by Lord of the Rings director Peter Jackson in which he expounds on his love for the show.
Doctor Who
"Doctor, don't look, but there's a Dalek behind you."
"Oh he's just a camera hog, ignore him."
And, to make the wait for the series return on March 30th even more excrutiating,
producer Marcus Wilson is teasing fans that they will never, could never, guess Clara's secret:
"It's a riddle that won't easily be cracked. I defy anybody to guess it. Steven Moffat has found a way to lead everybody down the garden path and then knock them over with surprise at the end."
Doctor Who
Or perhaps a Cyber-smack uppa you head!
Challenge accepted, Mr. Wilson.

4. Visit Storybrooke in a Story Book: Once Upon A Time Expanding To Novels

What better fit for a show about stories than to actually branch out into the world of books? Disney-owned Hyperion books will be launching the first title, Reawakened which follows the split storyline of the show, starring Emma in Storybrooke and Snow White in Fairy Tale Land. Written by Odette Beane, this book might not be the key to breaking a curse, but it might just be a great way to delve further into the show.

Once Upon A Time

And that'll be all for tonight, folks! I'll leave you by paraphrasing Tennyson:

"In the Spring, a young fan's fancy lightly turns to thoughts of love...and aliens...and lasers...and superpowers...and magic...and..."
