Although the details vary depending on which bits and pieces of comic book continuity you choose to ignore, the forging of the hammer Mjolnir was a dramatic affair. Created by Dwarven blacksmiths working with the powerful Asgardian metal known as uru, the Odinson’s weapon of choice was constructed at an enchanted forge in the heart of a dying star. Enchanted so it could only be lifted by those worthy of the power of Thor, Mjolnir is one of the most powerful – and exclusive – weapons in the Marvel universe. Only a handful of characters in comic book history have managed to wield it.
And then some guy with a YouTube channel came around and built his own version using the power of science. Take that, colorful space gods!
Check out footage of the real Thor hammer after the jump!

Yesterday, Marvel Studios announced a bunch of changes and additions to their release calendar. Among the announcements were an Ant-Man sequel titled Ant-Man and the Wasp set for 2018, new release dates for Black Panther and Captain Marvel and three yet-to-be-announced Marvel movies scheduled for 2020. So the question I’ve been getting over the last 24 hours is this: What does Marvel Studios have planned for 2020?

Disney held an event at Hero Complex Gallery in Los Angeles on Tuesday night to celebrate the home video release of Marvel’s Avengers: Age of Ultron (which hits stores and VOD on October 2nd 2015). They unveiled a new Tyler Stout print for the film, and Marvel head Kevin Feige and Avengers producer Jeremy Latchem were on hand for an extensive 26 minute question and answer session.
As with most of these Question and Answer sessions, the queries thrown at Feige began at the Avengers sequel but quickly diverted to the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, including Captain America: Civil War, Doctor Strange, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2, The Avengers: Infinity War and Jon Watts’ Spider-Man reboot. Its so much that we’re going to divide this into two posts. This first post will focus on how Marvel plotted the Infinity stones in phase one and two and the upcoming phase three leading to The Avengers: Infinity War. Here is what is answered:
- When will we see the final two Infinity Stones?
- When did they know that they would start introducing the Infinity Gems?
- Was making the Tesseract an Infinity Stone planned after the fact?
- Will Avengers: Infinity War be an end of the story told thus far?
- Has the entire story leading to the conclusion in The Avengers: Infinity War Part II been planned out already?
- Were the Avengers: Age of Ultron visions a prediction of the future that could come in Infinity War?
After the jump you can check out the Tyler Stout Avengers Age of Ultron poster that premiered at the event. You can also watch the entire question and answer session captured on video. I believe I was the only one in attendance who was recording video, so while you might read some choice quotes elsewhere — this is a bit of an exclusive.

One of the biggest victims of Avengers: Age of Ultron‘s overstuffed narrative was Thor. The god disappeared into a seemingly out-of-nowhere side quest that didn’t raise a whole lot of interest or make a whole lot of sense, raising the question of why the film bothered giving him a subplot at all.
The answer, as you may have already read, is that Thor was originally supposed to have a much meatier subplot to himself. Unfortunately, with the film threatening to go over the three-hour mark, something had to get cut, and that something was Thor. But thanks to the film’s upcoming Blu-ray release, we can finally see what we was missing in the film. Watch the Avengers Age of Ultron Thor deleted scene after the jump. Read More »
