In just five days, I have visited Disney World’s new Pandora: The World of Avatar, experienced Universal Orlando’s third theme park Volcano Bay, and the grand opening of Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: BREAKOUT! at Disneyland Resort’s Disney California Adventure. I’ll have more on Volcano Bay and AvatarLand next week, but today, I wanted to give you my quick reaction to Mission Breakout. How does Marvel’s first step into North American Disney Parks compare to the former and beloved attraction it replaced, The Twilight Zones Tower of Terror?

guardians of the galaxy ride

Jeff Goldblum‘s first official appearance in the Marvel Cinematic Universe may be in the upcoming Thor: Ragnarok, but fans who stuck around for the after-credits scenes in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 may have noticed a tiny cameo by the Grandmaster, brother of Benicio del Toro‘s The Collector a character who played a key role the first Guardians of the Galaxy.

So news that Grandmaster may make an appearance in the Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: Breakout! theme park attraction is surprising, but not unexpected.

jeff goldblum thor ragnarok

The best thing about reading a Jeff Goldblum interview is that it’s so explicitly Goldblum that you can practically hear him talking and guffawing in your ear.

More so than the tidbits he teases about Thor: Ragnarok his first venture into superhero territory or the fact that he’s returning to the dinosaur franchise that he helped make famous as Dr. Ian Malcolm, are the hilarious Goldblum-esque quirks throughout this new interview. He calls the Jurassic Park series “dino-entertainment!” He rates directors on a scale of himself! It’s fortuitous that Ragnarok director Taika Waititi told Goldblum to be as Goldblum as possible in his portrayal of the Grandmaster. I hope he never changes.

avengers infinity war set photo

Those frustrating nightmare visions from Avengers: Age of Ultron may finally pay off in Avengers: Infinity War.

The visions implanted by Scarlet Witch in Age of Ultron acted largely as reflections on the various Avengers’ psyches, except for Thor’s. His vision was an explicit move to set up the next phase of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and it’s one that has yet to come to fruition. Though we may finally see what his vision was teasing in Infinity War and even perhaps in Thor: Ragnarok, if this set photo from Infinity War is anything to go by.

A few years ago, Marvel Studios moved from their Manhattan Beach offices to the Walt Disney Studios lot. And yesterday, for the first time, Disney has opened the door to press. On Monday afternoon, I visited the new Marvel offices in Burbank. Here’s what I saw.

Taika Waititi Korg

During my visit to the offices of Marvel Studios yesterday, I learned that director Taika Waititi has cast himself as Korg in Thor: Ragnarok. The filmmaker hinted at the character’s appearance in the film during production, but his role had been kept under wraps…and it looks great.

the collector's fortress in Thor: ragnarok

Disneyland Resort is currently retrofitting the Twilight Zone Tower of Terror attraction into Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: Breakout!, which is set to open later this summer. The new Disney California Adventure attraction is being rethemed into a fortress owned by Benicio Del Toro‘s character Taneleer Tivan (AKA the Collector). Of course, this Fortress has not appeared in any of the Marvel movies to date, and James Gunn has confirmed that the Collector does not appear in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. But what if the Collector’s new digs make a theatrical appearance in Thor: Ragnarok?

Thor Ragnarok - Mark Ruffalo as Hulk

This morning, the Thor: Ragnarok trailer caught everyone off guard. Not only does it look like it will easily be the best film in the Thor franchise, but it looks like it could be on the higher end in ranking all the Marvel Studios movies. Of course, this is just a teaser trailer, and we need to keep our hype in check.

Even so, there are a lot of details to notice in this teaser and some new elements to the story that hadn’t officially been revealed until now. Let’s dig deep with our Thor Ragnarok trailer breakdown, where we go through the whole thing frame-by-frame. Read More »

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.
