James Gunn Thor Ragnarok

On Monday, we compiled a list of reactions to Marvel Studios’ new movie Thor: Ragnarok from critics who got to see the film early, but in the wake of the Hollywood premiere of the film, there’s one more reaction we’d like to talk about. Writer/director James Gunn, the creative force behind the Guardians of the Galaxy franchise and one of the key players shaping the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s future over the next decade and beyond, has written a rave review of the movie, likening it to a lost 1980s classic and singling out Mark Ruffalo‘s performance as The Hulk as one of the film’s strongest aspects.

The closer we get to the premiere of Justice League, the lighter the tone of its trailers seem to be. Case-in-point: the Flash’s goofy grin in the newest Justice League TV spot.

Like yesterday’s featurette, the new Justice League clip emphasizes the team’s chemistry, as well as their individual prowesses as superheroes (after all, they each have their own upcoming solo movies). They worked hard on those logos, folks.

thor ragnarok clip

Before he was an acclaimed film director and fashion icon, Taika Waititi was an actor. And getting behind the camera doesn’t mean he’s lost the acting bug.

The director of Thor: Ragnarok has made an appearance in all of the films he’s directed, and far be it for him to pass up a chance to star in a superhero blockbuster. In a new Thor: Ragnarok clip previewed by star Chris Hemsworth on Jimmy Kimmel Live — during which Hemsworth, Waititi, and co-star Mark Ruffalo also participated in a fun Matt Damon-centric bit — we finally get introduced to Waititi’s character.

Hulk in the MCU

Marvel has had some trouble when it comes to standalone Hulk movies. After striking-out (box office wise, at least) twice with two different Hulk movies, the big green guy finally had his day in The Avengers. Now Hulk is set to appear in Thor: Ragnarok, which will set the character on a three party story arc that will continue over subsequent Marvel films. Get all the info about the new arc involving Hulk in the MCU below!

Constantine trailer

Earlier this year, we learned that John Constantine, the demon hunting comic book character who’s already been the subject of a movie and a short-lived live-action TV series, was going to get yet another show of his own – this time in animated form through The CW’s digital offshoot, CW Seed.

The first footage debuted at New York Comic Con, and it looks like they aren’t messing around: it’s full of bloody demons being ripped limb from limb and roasted alive. There’s even (gasp!) some cursing thrown in as well. Watch the new Constantine trailer below.

justice league featurette

A troubled production and an uneven final trailer can’t stop the actors from just having plain fun in Justice League.

The cast are all grins in this “first look” (which is weird because it’s not really a first look) at the Warner Bros. superhero team-up film, which boasts a mood a hundred times more ebullient than most of the DC films have been thus far. Cobbled together from a group interview with stars Ben Affleck, Gal Gadot, Ezra Miller, Jason Momoa, and Ray Fisher, as well as what looks like set interviews and sit-downs, the Justice League featurette explores how these super friends came to be.
