Here on Dream Gifs we love Game of Thrones but we also love puppies. The Pugs of Westeros sees Roxy, Blue and Bono playing doggy versions of the main characters from Game of Thrones, including Joffrey Baratheon, Daenerys Targaryen and Jon Snow.
The pugs’ owners, Phillip Lauer and his wife Sue, from California, have been dressing their pugs up as characters from movies and TV since they were puppies. They normally only shoot still photography but jumped at the chance of creating a mini-movie based on one of their favourite shows. Phillip says: “We have a studio set up in the garage and whenever I walk them towards it they get excited, no doubt wondering what’s next. It’s fun for them, but they do take it seriously – they are proper little professionals.”
Kick-Ass 2 is a 2013 British-American superhero action-comedy film based on the comic book of the same name and Hit-Girl, both by Mark Millar and John Romita, Jr., and is the sequel to the 2010 film Kick-Ass, as well as the second installment of the Kick-Ass film series. The film was written and directed by Jeff Wadlow and co-produced by Matthew Vaughn, who directed the first film. Aaron Taylor-Johnson and Chloë Grace Moretz reprise their roles from the first film as Dave Lizewski and Mindy Macready respectively.
In the plot, Dave Lizewski, bored after having retired from fighting crime as Kick-Ass, begins training with Mindy Macready to become a proper hero. Mindy’s guardian, Marcus, discovers she is still fighting crime and makes her promise to give it up. Source: Wikipedia.
Hit-Girl (real name Mindy McCready) is a fictional character appearing in the Kick-Ass series, published by Marvel Comics under the company’s imprint Icon Comics. The character was created by artist John Romita, Jr. and writer Mark Millar. She is a young but effective vigilante, trained by her father Damon McCready (a.k.a. Big Daddy) from an early age to be a costumed superhero and assassin. In Kick-Ass, she is introduced as a supporting character. She featured in her own self-titled comic book series, Hit-Girl, which was first published on 27 June 2012.
She is portrayed by Chloë Grace Moretz in the feature film adaptations Kick-Ass and Kick Ass 2. In the summer of 2008, Chloë Grace Moretz saw posters of Angelina Jolie in the film Wanted, in Los Angeles, prompting her to ask for a role that she described as “an Angelina Jolie-type character” and “like an action hero, woman empowerment, awesome, take-charge leading role.” One month later, she was offered the role of Mindy McCready / Hit-Girl.

Marlon Brando played Jor-El in the 1978 film Superman, which Alexander Salkind, his son Ilya Salkind, and their business partner Pierre Spengler produced and which Richard Donner directed. Susannah York as Lara, Superman’s biological mother on Krypton.
On the dying planet Krypton, using evidence provided by scientist Jor-El, the Ruling Council sentences three attempted insurrectionists, General Zod, Ursa and Non, to “eternal living death” in the Phantom Zone. Despite his eminence, Jor-El is unable to convince the Council of his belief that Krypton will soon explode. To save his infant sonKal-El, Jor-El launches a spacecraft containing the child towards Earth, a distant planet with a suitable atmosphere, and where Kal-El’s dense molecular structure will give him superhuman powers. Shortly after the launch, Krypton is destroyed.
In the movie, Jor-El is shown wearing the iconic “S”-shield symbol as the family crest of the House of El, resembling an Earth “S” by coincidence. The name “Superman” is later coined by Lois Lane due to the resemblance. In tandem, other Kryptonians are seen wearing their own individualized family crests. Originally thought up by Brando himself and suggested on-set, this origin of the famous Superman symbol has been used in many stories since. In the current comics, however, the shield is the Kryptonian symbol for “hope,” and not only is it worn by Jor-El in a similar manner to Brando of the first feature film, but it adorns all manner of Kryptonian flags, clothing, spaceships, and equipment.
