Fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and Thor in particular, are furiously nodding their heads in agreement. Chris Hemsworth recently shared his exciting vision for the future of Thor: Ragnarok and it has fans of the mighty Avenger saying, “Verily, we shall align our cause with yours and charge forth with you into the third installment of your flowery speech-saturated franchise, Chris, He-who-is…Worthy of… uh, Being-Hemmed…” (more…)
Yesterday, as per recent tradition, we got a trailer for the trailer for The Huntsman: Winter’s War. The sorta-sequel to 2012’s Snow White and the Huntsman promises to be the same kind of effects-filled, Tolkein-esque gothic adventure as the original, but with the focus now on Chris Hemsworth‘s title character. But you know who stands out in this first full trailer? All the ladies. It is the tradition of fairy tales for the men to fight and the women to be saved, but is Winter’s War about to throw shade on that sexist folklore in a big way? If the trailer is to be believed, the answer is a definite maybe. (more…)
From Game of Thrones‘ ominous warning “Winter is coming,” to the accidental chaos of crykinetic powers in Disney’s Frozen, to all those super-villains like Captain Cold, Killer Frost, and Mr. Freeze, fantasy literature has been telling us for years that ice and snow is evil. To wit, the message is sent and received once again in this first teaser for The Huntsman: Winter’s War, in which we meet the Ice Queen as the latest cold-related fairy tale villain in this quasi-sequel to 2012’s Snow White and the Huntsman. Even without Snow White, it seems that everything in this magic kingdom is far from alright. (more…)
It’s a bromance for the ages. While it’s still unknown whether Thor: Ragnarok will explore Bruce Banner‘s relationship with the meaner and greener side of himself, we know it will show us more of the friendship between Bruce Banner (Mark Ruffalo) and Thor (Chris Hemsworth). Ruffalo went as far as to describe the upcoming Marvel film as “a buddy picture,” although even in the tightest of friendships there are bound to be squabbles. For two superheros, however, “squabbles” is definitely an understatement. (more…)
Let’s be brutally honest, neither of the Thor movies made so far have exactly been barn burners. While Iron Man 1 and 3 made their marks, and Captain America: The Winter Soldier was a near universally-acclaimed film, neither Thor nor Thor: The Dark World have caused fans to walk out of the theater saying that they needed more of the God of Thunder right there and then. So maybe what Thor really needs is to shake things up for part three, and while many would loath to say it, maybe if Odin-son went darker, it might get some more attention. As fate would have it, that’s just what they’re saying about the upcoming Thor: Ragnarok. (more…)
With just a couple of days left until the October 2nd DVD/BluRay release date for Joss Whedon‘s Avengers: Age of Ultron one would expect Marvel/Disney to ramp up their massive marketing machine for one push at consumers. We’ve seen one gag reel already and now we’ve got another. Many of the actors during the press junket talked about how loose and fun Whedon keeps the set and now we’ve got proof. (more…)
Avengers: Age of Ultron comes out on DVD and Blu-ray later this week, and while we all jauntily marched to the theater back in May to watch it, we eagerly anticipate the home video of release of the film to get a look at those deleted scenes. Everyone’s been pretty upfront that the original cut of Ultron was much longer, and watching the movie it’s easy to note that it’s missing a few things that were cut for brevity. So now we’ll be able to check out what was cut out, and one of those scenes in question is the one included below. (more…)
First came the glimpse of the first live action female Ghostbusters, now we have the look at the first male of the new ghostbusting family, one Chris Hemsworth. Fans are still curious about the total direction of Feig’s project, but it seems to us that at the very least, this project will be full of giggles for those who are ready to believe again.
The first shot of our man after the jump. (more…)
Well, here’s an odd bit of news about the Ghostbusters reboot. We already know that the movie won’t be the one that most people were hoping for, with the original cast and director (through no fault of theirs, to be sure). We’ve also seen a gender-swap that will take the franchise in a different direction. There will also be no connection to the original Ghostbusters franchise, meaning this is flick is on its own. So with so many changes, one more oddity won’t hurt, right? So what’s the news? Chris Hemsworth, none-other-than Thor himself, will be taking on the role of the Ghostbusters’ receptionist. (more…)
It’s the lunch hour, so why not make some time to get stoked about the biggest comic book movie of all time (to date): Avengers: Age of Ultron. The internet’s been exploding the last several days with new clips and promotion of the Marvel Studios film, which remains two very anxious weeks away from release. But perhaps your desire for superhero fun and excitement can be fed with the following clips. The stars of Avengers were very busy yesterday with red carpets and talk show appearances, while the studio is busy releasing new scenes, and new advertisements to convince fans who were already excited about this project mere minutes after 2012’s The Avengers ended, why they should be even more excited.
