Pitch for Into the Dark World
  David Alexander

Here’s my rewrite of Thor fraught with plot
                holes and disloyal to its source:
Portman & Dennings plot to displace JJ Abrams
they wanna see Kirk-Spock slash on silver screen.
Distracted by love, commissions are relieved
Uhura foils Khan – yes she knew, she read
the spoilers on io9. What other role
would merit Cumberbatch?

As Dark Elves hack at Thor and Loki, our heroes
                struggle to finance a Trek about nothing.
Money fears the auditioning cosmos, to attach a particular
spacetime continuum within the (postulated) multiverse.
What they need is an Anderson, a Coppola, a Jonze –
so people say, oh, it’s one of those.
