Like all the other Marvel movies before it, this weekend’s Guardians of the Galaxy is jam-packed with Easter Eggs. An “easter egg” is a hidden visual or audio cue that doesn’t add to a story, and isn’t necessary to see on first watch, but adds to repeat viewings by winking to the fans. Marvel is great at this, stuffing their films with Easter Eggs both very obvious and rather subtle, making all of their movies crazy rewatchable.
The problem with most of these Marvel Easter Eggs is they go by so fast, you often can’t see them until the films hit Blu-ray. That’s why this new video from MTV, Every Marvel Easter Egg Explained In One Video, only goes through last year’s Thor: The Dark World. Even so, it’s still an awesome watch and surely includes some things even the most hard-core fans might have missed. Read More »

The company announced a new Thor comic is coming out, written by Jason Aaron with art from Russell Dauterman. However, the person most people think of as Thor is no longer worthy to wield Mjölnir, and he’s been replaced by a woman. Yes, the new Thor comic will star a female Thor.

There’s really no arguing that Loki is the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s best villain. As played by Tom Hiddleston, he’s so slyly charismatic that he often threatens to steal the show from right out under the real hero, Chris Hemsworth‘s Thor. But when casting for the first Thor was going on, Hiddleston wasn’t initially set on playing the bad guy. In fact, he originally tried out for the part of Thor.
The bonus features released with the Thor: The Dark World Blu-ray include Hiddleston’s original audition tape for the role, in which he goes bare-chested, rocks long blond locks, and swings around the iconic hammer. See Hiddleston in action as Thor after the jump.
Update: If gifs aren’t enough, there’s now some brief video of Hiddleston’s audition, which we’ve added below.

One of the many fun things about a new Marvel movie being released is an opportunity to see the older ones on the big screen again. For the release of The Avengers and Iron Man 3, Marvel organized theatrical marathons of the films leading up to the new movie, and the plan is no different for this coming November 7. That’s when AMC Theaters will host screenings of Thor, The Avengers, and end with Thor: The Dark World hours before it opens. Read More »
