Last week, just before the weekend, fans were all abuzz online after Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn posted a picture of himself holding Mjolnir, the trusty hammer that is traditionally wielded by Thor. Since the filmmaker is currently busy at work on Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, Marvel fans immediately assumed that Gunn was teasing a cameo from the God of Thunder (Chris Hemsworth). After all, since Thor comes from another part of the galaxy himself, it would make sense that he might encounter the ragtag team of space criminals turned heroes.
However, after the internet went crazy with speculation, Gunn made sure to clarify that Thor wouldn’t be making a cameo with a quick little post. Have your dreams crushed of seeing Thor in Guardians of the Galaxy 2 after the jump. Read More »

A few years ago, there was a rumor going around that the end of Avengers: Age of Ultron would see Hulk blasted into space after posing too much of a threat to humanity. This would have opened the gates for a solo Hulk movie based on the popular Planet Hulk storyline, one that would end with Hulk heading back to Earth and becoming a potential villain for the Avengers to deal with in their third film together.
However, none of that came to fruition. Sure, Hulk ended up exiled at the end of Age of Ultron, but that was of his own doing, and it wasn’t in space. And as we know now, The Avengers 3 will instead be focusing on the Infinity War. But Hulk will have plenty to do in Thor: Ragnarok, the movie that Mark Ruffalo describes as an intergalactic buddy movie that teams up the big guy with the God of Thunder. Now new details indicate that part of the Thor sequel will stand-in for a Planet Hulk movie.
Find out more below, but beware of potential spoilers for Thor: Ragnarok. Read More »
The Marvel cinematic universe is growing so much that nearly every actor in Hollywood will have appeared in a Marvel Studios movie before all is said and done. For most actors and actresses, a role in a Marvel movie is a good move. But apparently taking a key role in a Marvel movie wasn’t something that Mel Gibson was particularly interested in, because he turned one down.
Mel Gibson made some publicity rounds at the Cannes Film Festival for the premiere of Blood Father, the latest film from Jean-François Richet, and one interview brought the revelation that Mel Gibson turned down Thor. Specifically, Gibson would have played the role of Odin in Thor, the God of Thunder’s moody father who ended up being played by Anthony Hopkins. In addition, Gibson had some thoughts about superhero movies in general and the state of motion pictures. Read More »

Last year, /Film ranked the films of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, so that means we’re allowed to wait a few more years before we’re due for a full and proper refreshment. But with Captain America: Civil War currently in theaters, we decided we had to rank something. This is the internet and this what you do on the internet.
So we put our heads together and cast top secret votes to determine the greatest superheroes of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. After winnowing down the list or eligible characters to thirty names (anti-heroes, power-less sidekicks, and villains were ineligible, as was the cast of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. since almost no one on the crew watches it), we each ranked the heroes in order of preference. Those ranked higher were given a certain number of points. Those ranked lower received fewer points. Any ties were decided by a second round of voting.
And this is what we got. Feel free to express your polite disagreements and passionate opinions in the comments below.
