After finding out that Cate Blanchett would be joining the Marvel Universe via a lead female role in Thor: Ragnarok, there was much speculation on which character the multi award winning actress might be portraying.  Mark Ruffalo spilled the beans that Blanchett would be playing a baddie, and now that we know which one, we don’t envy the work Thor and Hulk have cut out for themselves!

Ant-Man may have marked the end of Marvel‘s Phase Two, but now that everything is released on video, including the the limited edition, Amazon exclusive, Phase Two Blu-Ray box set, it really feels like we’re officially in Phase Three. Before you know it, we’ll be posting articles and reviews about the newly released Captain America: Civil War, talking about how amazing it was. But life is too short to be rushing into Phase Three. Let’s take a moment first to enjoy some of the moments in Phase Two. Especially as some new material and sneak peeks into the future were just released with the Amazon exclusive Blu-Ray set.

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.

Now would be the time that we would insert a huge spoiler warning for anyone that doesn’t want to know.
