Almost everything we know about Thor: Ragnarok is built on rumor, conjecture, and offhand comments from Mark Ruffalo. We know that Cate Blanchett is probably joining the cast. We know the plot will involve Thor and the Hulk teaming up to go on some kind of cosmic road trip. We know that Taika Waititi of What We Do in the Shadows fame is on board to direct. But beyond that? Be skeptical.
So be skeptical with this new rumor that claims to know exactly how the Incredible Hulk ends up the third Thor adventure. If you want to know more, grab your pinch of salt and follow me.

James Gunn has said he no longer plans to respond to rumors about which characters will or won’t be in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, but that isn’t stopping the rest of the internet from speculating.

Last month, we learned that Cate Blanchett was in talks to join the cast of Thor: Ragnarok and there was much rejoicing. Any movie would be lucky to lure the phenomenally talented Blanchett into its cast, so the thought of her joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe in some capacity is mind-boggling. This is “Robert Redford in Captain America: The Winter Soldier” and “Tilda Swinton in Doctor Strange” level casting. We live in an age where our finest thespians have no problem taking a shift or two in comic book movies.
But who would Cate Blanchett be playing in the third Thor adventure, which is a buddy film starring the Odinson and the Hulk that will be directed by What We Do in the Shadows’ Taika Waititi? A new report has hit the internet claiming to know the answer to that question and it sounds about right. Still, consider this a rumor until we hear something official.

As it slowly limps out of theaters, Quentin Tarantino‘s The Hateful Eight feels destined to go down as the director’s most divisive film. Critics and audiences were split. It made /Film’s top 10 of 2015 but won’t earn half of what Django Unchained grossed at the box office. The incredible roadshow presentation was marred by theaters unprepared to project 70mm film prints. Tarantino’s legacy may be secure, but the destiny of The Hateful Eight itself is a big question mark.
And this is the point where we have to wonder what Tarantino will take on next. With the notable exception of the long break he took between Jackie Brown and Kill Bill Vol. 1, the always-controversial filmmaker typically has had another movie ready to go two or three years after his previous release. Could his next movie be a gangster movie set in 1930s Australia? Because he’s talking about that now.

Universal doesn’t want their Fast & Furious franchise to end anytime soon. Fast & Furious 7 made over $1.5 billion dollars at the box office, and even aside from the money, this series shows no signs of slowing down. Director Justin Lin raised the bar with Fast Five, making these movies more popular than ever before. Understandably, Universal wants to keep the brand going outside of the main franchise, and they may plan on doing that with spinoffs.
A new rumor indicates Monica Fuentes (Eva Mendes) will return for Fast & Furious 8, following her brief post-credits cameo in Fast Five and possibly ahead of her own spinoff film. Learn more about the potential Fast and Furious spinoff after the jump.

It’s no secret that Spider-Man will be entering the Marvel Cinematic Universe for the first time with Captain America: Civil War. However, there’s still a lot we don’t know about the webcrawler’s appearance in the movie. Even though we know that this will be a teenage version of Peter Parker played by Tom Holland, we don’t know how long he’ll appear in the movie, what his suit will look like, or anything like that. But a new rumor may have given us one detail that we didn’t know previously: how the Avengers recruit Spider-Man in Captain America Civil War.
Find out details after the jump, but beware of spoilers from here on out. Read More »

Star Wars: The Force Awakens is already the #1 highest grossing film on the domestic box office charts. And with a release in China this weekend, Disney and Lucasfilm are certainly hoping it has the legs to take the top spot on the international box office charts as well. In the meantime, fans are already eagerly anticipating Star Wars: Episode VIII, to continue the story that began in The Force Awakens. Little is known about the film as of now, but a new rumor has named another potential star for the sequel.
While we previously heard that Beyond the Lights and Jupiter Ascending star Gugu Mbatha-Raw had landed a pivotal role in Episode 8, a new rumor pegs Bel Powley, the breakout star of the Sundance selected Diary of a Teenage Girl, as being in the running for the same role. Read More »

When you really look at it, that first Captain America: Civil War trailer doesn’t give away much at all. Watching Captain America and Iron Man throw down is so exciting (and upsetting!) that you don’t really miss a big Spider-Man reveal. Catching tiny glimpses of Black Panther in action is cool enough that you don’t need to see the exact line-up of Tony Stark’s allies. There was enough satisfying stuff on display that we could go on for a few more months without knowing exactly what kind of role Paul Rudd‘s Scott Lang / Ant-Man plays in the finale film.
That changes now! Sort of. Much like how toys and LEGO sets spoiled major plot points and characters for Star Wars: The Force Awakens and Avengers: Age of Ultron, a new Captain America: Civil War toy may very well have given up one of the most intriguing developments in the next Marvel Cinematic Universe adventure. Possible spoilers lurk below, so tread cautiously.
