Thor Ragnarok - Hulk vs Surtur

If you’ve seen the trailer (make sure you watch it here), you might be wondering about some of the new reveals and details that can be glimpsed within. Thankfully, we’ve got one of our helpful trailer breakdowns to help clear things up and offer some speculation.

Thor Ragnarok Comic-Con Footage and Panel

Marvel Studios brought Thor back to San Diego Comic-Con for their big Hall H panel, and while you  probably already watched the new Thor: Ragnarok trailer, there’s still plenty more that we can tell you.

Thor Ragnarok Trailer

Now that we have Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 and Spider-Man: Homecoming out of the way, we’re down to just one more release from Marvel Studios, and it has the chance of being the best one yet. Though the aforementioned additions to the Marvel Cinematic Universe were satisfying in their own way, the next adventure featuring The Avengers’ own God of Thunder looks surprisingly good.

Thor: Ragnarok released its first trailer back in April, letting Led Zeppelin drive the exciting, colorful, cosmic adventure from Hunt for the Wilderpeople and What We Do in the Shadows director Taika Waititi. Now a new Thor: Ragnarok trailer gives us an even better glimpse at the Marvel sequel, which looks to be the best film in Thor’s own franchise to date.

hulk movie

There have been rumors of a solo Hulk film since Mark Ruffalo stepped into the ripped purple pants in 2012’s The Avengers. Could Thor: Ragnarok be a film setting up a Planet Hulk movie, the Internet buzzed? Will we ever get the adventures of Hulk after he leaves in that tiny Quinjet at the end of Avengers: Age of Ultron? Can Mark Ruffalo finally get his due?

That doesn’t seem like it will happen, Ruffalo told an intrepid reporter at the D23 Expo in Anaheim, California. In fact, don’t count on seeing a standalone Hulk film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe at all.

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.

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: Ragnarok synopsis - Thor (Chris Hemsworth) and Loki (Tom Hiddleston)

2017 marks the first year Marvel Studios will be putting out three MCU movies, and while we don’t want to get too ahead of ourselves here, we’ve gotta say they all look pretty great so far. The Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 trailer was a crowd-pleaser. The Spider-Man: Homecoming one felt like a breath of fresh air. And Thor: Ragnarok? Personally, I think it’s got the potential to be the best of the bunch.

With Thor: Ragnarok‘s release date still ten months away, it’ll probably be a while before the marketing campaign really kicks into high gear. But Disney’s starting the year with a tiny taste of what’s to come. The studio has finally revealed an official Thor: Ragnarok synopsis that solidifies some of the story details, and a new Thor: Ragnarok behind-the-scenes photo that reminds us Chris Hemsworth‘s bare arms are still some of the best special effects this franchise has to offer.

Thor Ragnarok tone

It wasn’t the splashiest surprise at this year’s Marvel Comic-Con panel, but the new Thor: Ragnarok logo definitely got some fans talking. As our own Ethan Anderton put it at the time, it looked “very similar to the old logo for the Masters of the Universe cartoon and toy line.” It certainly stood in sharp contrast to the more traditional-looking logos of Thor movies past.

Well, it turns out the retro vibe is very much intentional. In a Reddit AMA, director Taika Waititi described Thor: Ragnarok as “’70s/’80s sci-fi fantasy,” and teased that it might just be “the most ‘out there’ of all the Marvel movies.” In addition, he admitted he tries to ignore the other Thor films, swore up and down that he knows nothing about the rest of Marvel’s future plans, and promised Mark Ruffalo‘s Bruce Banner would steal the show.  Read More »

Save the Day Campaign Video

Famous people are used to shill for politicians all the time. But unlike making a decision on which soft drink, pizza or shoes you’re going to buy, choosing to vote is a much bigger deal. That’s why a new campaign called Save the Day has called upon an endless array of famous people to encourage you to vote.

Robert Downey Jr., Mark Ruffalo, Keegan-Michael Key, James Franco, Julianne Moore, Stanley Tucci, Nathan Fillion and a bunch more familiar faces (and some not so familiar) were rounded up to create this video that encourages people to register to vote. However, while this starts out like any other pro-voting campaign, it takes one hilarious turn right after the other, right down to a promise made by all the celebrities that Mark Ruffalo is tragically unaware of. Just watch the video below. Read More »
