Last night’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D./Thor: The Dark World crossover went relatively well (check our Official Nerd Bastards review of the episode here), and it seems like a no-brainer that Captain America: The Winter Soldier will send ripples through the show as well. Fortunately, Jed Whedon shined some light on the potential for a tie-in during a recent interview. (more…)
“You know, it’d be nice, if for once, Thor and his people sent down the God of Cleaning-up-after-yourself”
Last night, on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., we find the team tasked with cleaning up the mess left by Thor and his battle with Malekith and the Dark Elves, as seen in Thor: The Dark World. In an almost completely unrelated plot, when a piece of alien technology that was left behind thousands of years ago gets into the wrong hands, the team is in danger of being torn apart from the inside.
One of the core mysteries of the Marvel Movie Universe and ABC‘s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is how Clark Greg‘s Agent Coulson recovered from that horrific wound inflicted on him by Loki (Tom Hiddleston) and that sharp pointy staff of his. Did Marvel’s Asgardian All Father Odin (Anthony Hopkins) just spill the beans and offer us another clue? (more…)
Time for your weekly dose of the fantastic fandom based art to hit the web this week with your Nerd Art Dump. Each and every week we pick and choose through the masses of prints and pics on the digital frontier to give you nothing but the best to fill your geek needs. So on with the dump! ABOVE: Edward Hopper’s Nighthawks is often fodder for the homage/pastiche treatment, however World’s Finest Diner by Ian Navarro might just have become my all time favorite. I know this won’t happen, but if the powers at WB wanna base that whole Batman vs Superman movie off this image I am totally ok with that. The conflict could be over who picks up the cheque! (more…)
As if we haven’t been hammered (hehe, get it?) in the head enough with Thor: The Dark World footage, here’s another featurette for the film. This one focuses on the villain Malekith, played by Christopher Eccleston. It features several of the cast member discussing the character and shows off some footage.
Well, the new Thor: The Dark World is almost upon us, so I guess it was only a matter of time before the folks over at Screen Junkies decided it was time to give the original Thor flick the ol’ Honest Trailers treatment. Check out the hammer-wielding hero’s moment of shame in the video below. (more…)
Actually, it’s more like Lady Sif and the Warriors Three fight, but the movie is called THOR: The Dark World after all. In this brief, but active clip, Asgard’s finest warriors seem a bit in over their head till the God of Thunder appears and swings his might hammer. So to viewers from one end of the internet to the other: Llllllllllllllllllllllllllllet’s get ready to rumble!!!!!!!! (more…)
We’ve seen a portion of this before in the previously released trailers, but now we have this charming little scene between Thor and his evil (adopted) brother, Loki, in its entirety. From what we’ve gotten our hands on so far, this is what has me most excited about Thor: The Dark World, as Tom Hiddleston once again nails the role of the sneaky demi-god.
Two new clips from director Alan Taylor‘s Thor: The Dark World are making the Internet rounds today and with just over a month to go until the November 8th premiere, we can expect that glorious Disney/Marvel marketing machine to take it to eleven. Those other movie marketeers may take it to ten, but these guys go to eleven. Why don’t they just make ten as loud as eleven? Because they go TO eleven.
