Star Trek 4 Development

News of Star Trek 4 officially being in development first surfaced last summer. Producer J.J. Abrams confirmed work on the sequel and revealed it would somehow bring back Chris Hemsworth as George Kirk, the father of James T. Kirk who perished in exciting opening sequence of the first installment of the reboot that established a whole new timeline in the Star Trek universe. Since then all we’ve heard is vague hype about the sequel, and it sounds like the cast is unsure whether it will actually happen.

In a recent interview, Star Trek franchise star Zachary Quinto says that he’s still waiting for the script to be completed, and despite being hopeful that he’ll be able to reprise his role as Mr. Spock, the movie doesn’t seem to have been greenlit yet.

thor ragnarok trailer

Updated: The new poster for Thor: Ragnarok has arrived and we have added it to the bottom of this post.

Ever since it was announced that What We Do in the Shadows and Hunt For the Wilderpeople director Taika Waititi was going to helm the third movie in Marvel Studios’ Thor series, we’ve been wondering what the heck this movie would look like. After all, there’s no way it would look and feel like the previous two movies, both of which have proven divisive among Marvel Cinematic Universe devotees and normal folks alike.

Now, the first Thor: Ragnarok trailer has arrived and we can start picking it apart and seeing what makes this movie tick.

Thor Ragnarok BTS - Taika Waititi and Chris Hemsworth

Yesterday brought the first official images from Thor: Ragnarok, and a new look being sported by franchise star Chris Hemsworth left fans with a lot of questions. Not only is Thor sporting a short haircut, but instead of wielding his trusty hammer Mjolnir, he was holding two swords. What forced this drastic change in Thor’s change in hairstyle and weaponry? It all has to do with the God of Thunder’s journey in this sequel from director Taika Waititi.

Let’s sort through the recently revealed Thor Ragnarok plot details. Read More »

Thor Ragnarok Photos

As we saw this morning, Entertainment Weekly’s cover story is all about Thor: Ragnarok, the third film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe that we’ll be getting this year, which also happens to be the third film in the God of Thunder’s own film franchise. We knew we’d be finding out more about the sequel soon, but we didn’t think it would be this soon.

The first official Thor Ragnarok photos have been unveiled online by the magazine, and they reveal the colorful new world of Sakaar where Thor will find himself contending with the planet’s most powerful and popular gladiator: The Incredible Hulk. We don’t get any shots of Hulk just yet, but we do get to see Thor (Chris Hemsworth) reunited with Mark Ruffalo as Bruce Banner, as well as out first look at the gladiatorial games overseer, The Grandmaster, played by Jeff Goldblum.

Check out the new photos from Thor: Ragnarok below. Read More »

Thor Ragnarok Concept Art

Today brought Doctor Strange, Marvel’s most recent addition to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, to Digital HD. Since Marvel has some of the most rabid fans, they’ve already been combing over the special features for the home video release of the mystical superhero’s first adventure. One such feature includes a sneak peek at what’s in store for Phase 3 of the MCU, including some new concept art for the next installment of the Thor franchise.

Thor: Ragnarok is going to mix the franchise up a bit by taking Thor (Chris Hemsworth) on an adventure to the other side of the universe instead of heading back to Earth for the bulk of the action. Asgard is facing its biggest threat yet, but perhaps the toughest challenge the God of Thunder has to face before that is battling The Incredible Hulk (Mark Ruffalo), this time in a cosmic gladiator arena. The new piece of Thor Ragnarok concept art shows Thor and Hulk battling yet again after their first encounter in The Avengers, but it looks a little more intense this time. Check it out. Read More »

Thor Darryl Short

The saddest man in the Marvel Cinematic Universe isn’t Loki with his daddy issues or Bruce Banner with his self-loathing or even Bucky Barnes with his unreliable brain and unfortunately highly effective assassin training. No, if you ask me, it’s Darryl, the poor ordinary schmoe who somehow got stuck rooming with Thor while the rest of the Avengers were off having their Civil War.

As we saw in the first mockumentary short unveiled at Comic-Con, Thor might be a great superhero but he is a terrible roommate. Things don’t look much better for sad Darryl in Team Thor: Part 2, where it’s revealed Thor is not so much into the “paying rent in actual money” part of living with someone. Watch the new Thor Darryl short below. Read More »

avengers infinity war score

When Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige announced Avengers: Infinity War, it was positioned as a two-film epic crossover event that would be the culmination of everything Marvel had planned up to that point. So with both films about to start shooting concurrently, I thought it might be fun to take a look at all the characters confirmed or rumored to be part of Avengers: Infinity War, and theorize how they may play into this story.

Days later, Paramount confirmed the development, announcing that Hemsworth had signed on for the new film.
