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.

Professor Marston and the Wonder Women Trailer

This week brings the release of the second movie to tackle the origin of Wonder Woman this year, but unlike the superhero movie released this past summer, Professor Marston and the Wonder Women is about how the Amazon warrior princess came to existence on the pages of DC Comics.

A panel at New York Comic-Con took a closer look at the movie starring Luke Evans, Rebecca Hall and Bella Heathcote, and that included releasing a new trailer for the movie arriving in theaters at the end of the week.

thor ragnarok reviews

Marvel directors have had a tough time nailing a tone down for Thor. Is he a self-serious Norse god with a tragic Shakespearean background? Or is he comedic relief, obtusely stumbling over human courtesies?  Thor: Ragnarok director Taika Waititi asks: Why can’t we have both? But mostly the latter.

Early Thor Ragnarok reviews are out, and they’re heaping praise on the offbeat, retro, and lighthearted take on the mythic Avenger. The third Thor film has generated tons of positive buzz for finally letting loose the comedic talents of star Chris Hemsworth, who, until now, had mostly played the dour epic hero in his solo films, and tapping into the trippy potential of the cosmos. But Thor is nothing without his team (hurray for the Revengers!), with stellar supporting turns from the scene-stealing Tessa Thompson, fellow Avenger Mark Ruffalo, and vampy villainess Cate Blanchett.

Check out the early social media buzz for Thor: Ragnarok below.
