6 Celebrities We Want to See Write Children’s Books

Why The Avengers Didnt Help Captain America In The Winter Soldier 570x281 SR Geek Picks: Where The Avengers Were in Captain America 2, HYDRA Memes and More

Comedian and actor Russell Brand will soon be adding “children’s author” to his resume: Brand has signed a deal with Atria Books for three kids’ books, the first of which will come out in November. This isn’t the musician/actor’s first foray into the publishing world: His 2007 memoir My Booky Wook earned him bestseller status.

Still, children’s books are a different animal entirely, and we’re eager to see what he’ll come up with. Rolling Stones guitarist Keith Richards announced last month that he was writing a children’s book, so we here are Bookish are left to assume that all kinds of unexpected celebrities have a children’s book in them. For example, we bet Kim Kardashian is dying to put out a book now that her half-sisters are published authors, and we are totally rooting for a Mindy Kaling/B.J. Novak collaboration.

Bookish has some other celebrities and the kids’ books they wish they’d write.

  1. The fact that that Paul Rudd video plays automatically is really annoying.
    Also, I gotta ask, does anyone else really hate that “things wrong with” series?
    I mean, in one video they listed the fact that a film is in black and white. Half the things they list as being “wrong” are stylistic choices, or unrealistic things in movies that have NO interest in realism.

    • Just don’t take them seriously, and have fun with life. Watch their “Everything Wrong With Cinema Sins” video, that’s what got me to embrace them, and have fun with their videos.

    • It’s a joke video series meant to poke fun at movies (which explains the “Marvel Comics/DC Comics” sin at the start of comic book movie videos).

      Thing is, a lot of the time, the sins are incredibly accurate.

      • CinemaSins basically exists to poke fun at movies. Some of the sins, however, are legitamate; for example, “DC Comics” is a sin that shows up frequently. This is because DC stands for Detective Comics, so saying “DC Comics” is the same thing as saying “DC Comics Comics.” Some of their videos are really funny, but I prefer How It Should Have Ended.

        • I despite How It Should Have Ended. Don’t find them funny at all. It’s usually just a crap ending because they went into whiny mode after seeing a film.

          • Actually, I think they just wanted to make funny alternate endings, sans “whiny mode”.

          • Some are funny, some miss the whole point of the film they’re paroding.

  2. Okay, I think I have answers to the “Where the other Avengers were during the standalone movies” thing:

    –First thing you need to note is that the Avengers only show up when a “huge threat” appears (i.e. Loki, and soon to be Ultron), but here’s the run down of where SHIELD was too–

    Iron Man 3 – The reason SHIELD didn’t show up is because they knew he was alive. Tony contacted Pepper through a secure line a few hours after he crashed in Tennessee, SHIELD has eyes and ears everywhere, so I’m assuming they knew this. As for the Avengers… why would they show up, what were they gonna do? Fight the Mandarin? The US army couldn’t find the Mandarin, so I ask again, what were they gonna do if they assembled.

    Thor: The Dark World – The Avengers & S.H.I.E.L.D didn’t show up (even though it was a galaxy level threat) because Thor was allll the way in London, and the battle only took place for 8 minutes. Even Iron Man couldn’t get to London in 8 minutes.

    Captain America: The Winter Soldier – Same goes for it, Iron Man and Thor didn’t show up because the Helicarriers were only flying in the sky (nothing suspicious about that unless you know what Cap, Black Widow, Fury, etc. know), so Tony didn’t go flying there just cause some Helicarriers were flying. Then… the Helicarriers start firing at each other, that seems to be off right? Tony gets ready to fly to Washington D.C., but by the time he gets there, everything is done. The battle is over. (We didn’t see him go to DC, but he probably did).

    Those are my theories, and those are the theories I will stick by, and in all honesty, do you even REALLY want to see the Avengers show up in the standalone movies? Why do you want to see that? That’d be ridiculous. Anyways, yeah, those are my theories. :)

    • I had one problem. Iron Man and Hawkeye could have been called by Cap when they went to Falcon’s house. They could def trust them.

    • Or maybe, SHIELD didn’t show up in IronMAN 3 is because CA2 happens before IM3…. just saying

      • Agents of SHIELD first half of season takes place after Iron Man 3, and second half of season takes place before Captain America: The Winter Soldier, so… no, not really.

      • Captain America happens in real time after the events of The Avengers so it happens two years after the battle of new york. IM 3 takes place the Christmas after The Avengers with TDW also happening in real-time (a year and a half) after The Avengers.

  3. Reason Tony didn’t go to DC: He was rebuilding his suits, if he would have gone DC, he would of had to go in an unfinished suit.
    Reason Thor didn’t go to DC: He was in Asgard.
    Reason Hulk didn’t go to DC: Who knows, he was probably back in India, and didn’t want to hulk-out again.

  4. Im just wondering where the hell Hawkeye was…So they had time to fly in Colbie smulders character(thats how little I care for her character) all the way from wherever the heck she was but Hawkeye (who is a shield agent) is noticably missing in action. What would be more pressing then The winter soldier???? lol.

    • My guess is that Hawkeye will be shown to have been tracking down Baron von Strucker, since he appears prominently with the twins in early production shots of Avengers 2 and Strucker has, and has been experimenting with, possession of the same scepter Loki used to control Barton’s mind.

  5. So if the Justice League movie does happen and is a big enough hit to warrant stand-alone movies are we going to constantly hear, “Where were the Justice League, when (insert superhero here) was (insert crisis here)?”

    • Probably not as frequent since they generally either just have one city to protect, Superman Metropolis, Batman Gotham, Flash Central City & Keystone. Or just deal with specific enemies, Wonder Woman Greek Gods, Green Lantern enemies in space, and Aquaman whatever’s in the ocean.
