If you weren’t at San Diego Comic Con 2016 this summer, today is your lucky day.
Marvel Studios really brought the house down with their panel in Hall H at the pop culture convention back in July, but many fans were disappointed that they didn’t release any of the footage shown that day online with the exception of a new Doctor Strange trailer which debuted simultaneously online. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, Spider-Man: Homecoming and Thor: Ragnarok showed none of what played in Hall H that day to fans. But that changes today.
One of the best parts of the Marvel Studios panel this year was a mockumentary made by Thor: Ragnarok director Taika Waititi which showed what the God of Thunder (Chris Hemsworth) was up to while the rest of The Avengers were embroiled in their own conflict in Captain America: Civil War. Now the hilarious Thor mockumentary is officially online for you to watch in its entirety. Read More »

Marvel Studios has had a music problem for nearly a decade now. Say what you will about Warner Bros.’ recent wave of DC movies (I’ve certainly said my fair share), but at least Hans Zimmer’s Man of Steel score is an instantly identifiable piece of music that captures its lead character. For all of their various charms, the films of the Marvel Cinematic Universe have been grossly lacking in strong scores. Other than Tony Stark liking AC/DC and some occasionally stirring melodies in the Captain America movies, the heroes of the MCU have been deprived of music that matches their heroic actions.
And it’s starting to look like Marvel Studios is starting to do something about it. First, Michael Giacchino was hired to compose the score for the upcoming Doctor Strange, a promising sign for a movie that begs to have a unique score. Now, a new report claims that Mark Mothersbaugh will be lending his distinctive sound to Thor: Ragnarok.

The entire Marvel Studios panel from Comic-Con was a real treat for fans who waited in line overnight to get a taste of what the future holds for their favorite comic book heroes. But one of the highlights was undoubtedly the panel for Thor: Ragnarok. Since there wasn’t much footage to be glimpsed as the production had only been up and running for a week or two, director Taika Waititi put together a little mockumentary with Thor living in an average apartment with some random dude. It was hilarious, and you can get our whole recap of what was show in our coverage from the Marvel Comic-Con panel right here.
Thankfully, after that hilarious short, fans were treated to a bunch of behind the scenes footage, concept art and animatics teasing what’s to come in the third installment of Thor’s franchise. One of the more intriguing parts was a shot of Thor on a blue screen soundstage with warpaint on his face and an extremely short haircut. Now we get a look at Chris Hemsworth with his short new do in a couple Thor Ragnarok set photos posted to Instagram by co-star Mark Ruffalo. Check them out below. Read More »
