There Is A Reason Marvel Is Not Planning A ‘Hulk’ Solo Movie

After Mark Ruffalo‘s superb performance playing the Hulk in Joss Whedon‘s The Avengers (2012), his incarnation as the green-monster-with-anger-issues became a fan favorite; leading to the ultimate question “When will Hulk (Mark Ruffalo) be getting his own film.” Thusly, when Marvel Studios started rolling out Captain America, Iron Man, and Thor standalone movies, the Hulks absence from Marvel‘s release schedules became more apparent. Mark Ruffalo has appeased fans slightly by promising that the Hulk has a much bigger role in The Avengers: Age of Ultron, but will this suffice? It actually turns out there is a reason the Hulk has not been included in Marvel’s scheduling for a solo outing in the Cinematic Universe, and although you may be disappointed at first, it’s actually a really cool reason. We will leave you to judge for yourselves. (more…)

Marvel has officially announced the casting of German actor Daniel Bruhl for an unspecified role in Captain America: Civil War. The actor – who is probably best known for his ambiguously endearing-but-nasty role as Frederick Zoller in Quentin Tarantino’s Inglorious Basterds – joins a cast that already boasts three superheroes. Captain America: Civil War has an impressive line-up, including Chris Evans’ Cap. America, Robert Downey Jr’s Iron Man, newcomer Chadwick Boseman’s Black Panther and Sebastian Stan’s Winter Soldier. Unfortunately there is still no word on Frank Grillo’s involvement in the film as Crossbones. (more…)

‘Thor’ Co-Writer Promises There Will Be Blood in ‘Ragnarok’

- 11-11-14Uncategorized Posted by Adam A. Donaldson

When it was announced that the third Thor movie, which will be in a theater near you in the summer of 2017, was going to be subtitled Ragnarok, there were a lot of questions about the full meaning of the word in the context of the Thunder God’s next solo adventure. “Ragnarok” literally means “the final destiny of the gods,” which can be taken any number of ways, but that word “final” has some very specific implications. So we’re forced to wonder, is Ragnarok going to be a blood bath? Will it be, in effect, the final Thor solo adventure? We can’t answer that last question, but one of the co-writer’s is definitely pointing to an affirmative on that first question. (more…)

Not sure when this happened, but apparently Thor has a sister. And its Angela. You may know Angela as a Spawn character created by Neil Gaiman, and was one of a number of characters subject to a legal dispute between Gaiman and Spawn creator Todd MacFarlane. Emerging out of legal limbo, Gaiman passed control of Angela’s future to Marvel Comics (along with his stake in Miracleman) and the powerful redhead was quickly integrated into the cosmology of the Marvel U. In Asgard. As Thor’s secret sister. Coming out the recent gender reassignment of Thor in her new eponymously titled comic, her sister is also getting her own book called, Angela: Asgard’s Assassin #1. Some details and artwork follow.

Jessica Chastain has shown time and time again that she has the acting chops to take on pretty much any role.  Most of the world has been tracking her Hollywood progress ever since her scene-stealing turn in 2011’s The Help, for which she earned an Oscar nod.  With her latest outing, Christopher Nolan’s sci-fi epic, Interstellar, Chastain has now stepped into the genre waters, even if it’s just wetting her feet.  It appears, however, that she is loving the feel of the water and is interested in trying her hand at a role that plenty of us would love to see her in: the role of a superhero.

thor 2

After the traumatic events of the ‘Original Sin’ storyline, Male Thor has been rejected by his “best friend” and is having a hard time dealing. He is distraught in the face of forced failure, but somebody has to be a Thor because the power of Thor is Asgard’s greatest weapon. The god’s prized possession Mjolnir sits stubbornly on the surface of the Moon while Male Thor struggles to budge it with everything he’s got. And he gets zero sympathy from his father Odin, who just berates him for being tricked by dark magic. Dumbfounded at not being able to lift the mighty hammer himself, Odin decrees that there simply must be a Thor. Male or female, Thor’s gotta happen. And on the day when the chosen men were deemed unworthy, there came a lady to take up the mantle. (more…)

Marvel released the first official plot synopsis for Joss Whedon‘s Avengers: Age of Ultron earlier today. Don’t worry though, there’s not any smoking gun here. Nothing that spoils everything unless you’ve been on an Amish retreat in a remote ice cave in Antartica. It does set up the frame-work in which we can begin to speculate like demons though. Take a look after the jump. (more…)
