We’ve heard why Joss Whedon ended up cutting the filmed scenes of Tom Hiddleston‘s Loki from Avengers: Age of Ultron, but now Joss has spelled out where and what the sequence would have looked like on the big screen.
A comment by Idris Elba, who plays Heimdall, started the rumors flowing last year when he let it slip that he had filmed an Avengers: Age of Ultron scene with Tom Hiddleston as Loki. While Heimdall does show up in the sequel, it has been confirmed now that Loki does not; you can find his cameo on the cutting room floor. But why, why deprive us of our Loki? Director Joss Whedon explained the decision to MTV News. (more…)
Idris Elba & Tom Hiddleston Will Appear in ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’ What Does This Mean For The Film & The Marvel Cinematic Universe?
It’s clear that Avengers: Age of Ultron is going to cover a lot of ground in the Marvel Universe, literally and figuratively. Shots from the trailer seem to indicate there will be scenes in New York City, scenes in Europe, and flashbacks with a pre-Cap-sicle Steve Rogers. Ultron will be in the movie, along with probably Baron Von Strucker and possibly (and it seems really likely) Andy Serkis as Ulysses S. Klaw. How much more could you fit in one flick? Well according to actor Idris Elba who played Heimdall in Thor and Thor: The Dark World, at least just a little bit more. (more…)
It’s no secret that Tom Hiddleston stole the show when he first appeared in the Thor movie. While we were all there to see the titular character throw his hammer around and smash some bad guys, when we left the theater it was Loki whom we had fond memories of. Hiddleston pulled it off in spades and is now one of the most-loved Marvel characters to have ever graced the big screen. People have been clamoring for the character to get his own solo flick and, while that’s not likely to happen until Marvel runs out of heroes to pimp, one fan made his very own Loki-centric flick. Sort of… He actually just spliced all of the Loki bits from the movies he’s already been in together. But the end result is pretty cool (and a whopping 2 hours and 15 minutes long!). Scroll on to check it out Loki: Brother of Thor. (more…)
There was so much information pouring out of SDCC14 this year that it was hard to keep up with even the big announcements let alone all the smaller sometimes much cooler things that people who attended the convention saw. In the next couple of days we’ll be picking up the pieces and bringing you some of those items that might have flown below your SDCC14 radar. First up is all those Marvel-ous props from Joss Whedon‘s The Avengers: Age of Ultron. (more…)
And no, I don’t mean Thor the film (though it was for that movie), I’m talking about Thor the character. Yes, before Tom Hiddleston was considered for the role of the trickster god, Loki, he auditioned for the god of thunder himself. His original screen test will be a bonus feature on the upcoming DVD/Blu-ray release of Thor: The Dark World, coming February 25th, but you can get a tease of it in GIF form below. (more…)
I guess the countdown to the home video release of Thor: The Dark World is officially on as we start getting these deleted scenes and other treats. Today we get a look at the mother/son dynamic, and we get a bit of inside baseball on how the makers of Thor staged that awesome cameo (and if you saw the movie, you know what one I mean). (more…)
Even before Marvel or Disney could release an official announcement, the British Board of Film Classification, that’s the British version of the MPAA (Motion Picture Association of America) Film Rating System, has gone ahead and posted the entire list of special features in the upcoming Thor: The Dark World DVD/Blu-ray.

Take a delightful ride around Berlin with Tom Hiddleston on Stars in Cars. The show’s host took Hiddleston for a ride in the same type of car he bought with his first HBO check; the Peugeot 106. The whole thing looked like a lot of fun, they drove around, had a nice German lunch on the side of the road, drank some beer, juggled, and topped the whole thing off with a song. (more…)
The $87 million that Thor: The Dark World made at the box office over the weekend, shows that the Marvel Cinematic Universe still has what it takes to pack them in at the local multiplex. In fact, it made more money opening weekend than the original Thor. That’s good news for Marvel Studios, who have projects in the pipe through 2014, 2015 and beyond. The future of Marvel movies is a topic that Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige can’t stop talking about (or being asked about) during the promotion of any Marvel film. So obviously, as Thor: The Dark World goes global, Feige let some more hints about the future of the MCU drop.
But first a word of warning, if you haven’t seen Thor: The Dark World yet, particularly the tags at the end, be careful what you read below. (more…)
