Not too long ago, Disney put up their awards consideration pages for the films they hope will land some nominations from the Oscars, Golden Globes and other important Hollywood organizations. When it came to Avengers: Endgame, the usual ambition was there for Best Picture, Best Director, and a slew of technical awards. But there was one surprising exclusion.
Robert Downey Jr. previously confirmed that he opted not to campaign for any acting awards for his farewell performance as Tony Stark in Avengers: Endgame. This was surprising to fans since his final turn as the genius, billionaire, playboy, philanthropist and superhero felt like a performance that may have been worthy of at least a nomination. It appears Disney agreed and whether or not Downey intends to campaign for an Oscar, they’re going to do it for him. Robert Downey Jr. is included in the addition of consideration for Best Supporting Actor and Best Supporting Actress categories that feature several other Avengers: Endgame cast members too.

Thor: Ragnarok changed the trajectory of Marvel’s God of Thunder in a big way back in 2017. The franchise found new life with director Taika Waititi taking a hard turn into comedy and sending Chris Hemsworth to a more zany corner of the cosmic side of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and he even brought Mark Ruffalo as Hulk along with him. And when the filmmaker gets back behind the camera for Thor: Love and Thunder next year, it’s only going to get crazier. Read More »
Easily one of the best and most shocking parts of Avengers: Endgame was the reveal of Thor (Chris Hemsworth) totally letting himself go in the five years since half of the universe’s living beings were wiped out by Thanos. While some thought the film’s comedic approach to his appearance should be classified as fat-shaming, we saw it as something to praise, giving Thor one of the most powerful character arcs in the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe. But will he keep the weight on?
Thor: Ragnarok director Taika Waititi is coming back to helm Thor: Love and Thunder, which is slated for release in the fall of 2021. A couple drafts of the script have already been completed by the filmmaker, but apparently Waititi is still trying to figure out whether or not they’re going to let Thor keep his thicker physique for the sequel.

Thor: Ragnarok is one of the best movies on Phase Three of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and that’s largely thanks to director Taika Waititi breathing new life into the comic book franchise and really pushing Thor in an exciting new direction. Chris Hemsworth was very much excited to give the God of Thunder a new path to follow, but not everyone on the cast was quite so confident in this more comedic approach. Mark Ruffalo was particularly worried about the trajectory of Hulk and Thor. Read More »
Fans are already excited about Thor: Love & Thunder continuing the God of Thunder’s film franchise. Marvel Studios announced the sequel at San Diego Comic-Con this past summer with Taika Waititi back in the director’s chair after knocking Thor: Ragnarok out of the park in 2017. But that won’t be the only job he has for the sequel. The director confirmed that he will be returning as the beloved, rocky Kronan warrior known as Korg, and he also recently discussed some possible Thor: Love and Thunder story details. Read More »
Even though Hasbro is giving the drunken Lebowski Thor from Avengers: Endgame the Marvel Legends action figure that he deserves, there still isn’t a proper action figure of the final battle version of Thor with his new armor, braided beard and beer belly. But that changes early next year when Tamashii Nations releases one of their S.H. Figuarts action figures based on Chris Hemsworth as the mightiest version of Thor that we’ve seen yet. See the Avengers: Endgame final battle Thor action figure. below. Read More »
Avengers: Endgame is available today on digital download, allowing fans to revisit their favorite parts of the movie over and over again. After landing at the top of the box office charts as the highest grossing movie of all-time, the movie is now Fandango’s most pre-ordered title in the company’s history. But if you’re holding out for the physical media release on 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray or DVD, we have a peek at one of the special features you’ll get, and it shows Chris Hemsworth suiting up as the new Thor.

Avengers: Endgame showed us that in the five years since Thanos snapped his fingers and got rid of half of all the living creatures in the galaxy, Thor (Chris Hemsworth) had really taken a dark turn. Tucked away in Norway in a fishing village dubbed New Asgard, the god of thunder is now an out of shape drunk who has tried to ignore his past and seems intent on never doing anything significant again. As we’ve discussed before, this might be used for laughs at first, but Thor has some serious post-traumatic stress going on after deeming himself a failure for not killing Thanos properly at the right time.
Of course, just because Thor is taking the loss a lot harder than some of the other Avengers doesn’t mean some of his inappropriate behavior isn’t still worth a laugh here and there. In fact, a recently released Avengers Endgame deleted scene shows him in Asgard doing something that we have never seen any of the other Avengers do before. And Rocket Raccoon (Bradley Cooper) is not happy about it. Read More »

Taika Waititi is coming back for more Thor. The Thor: Ragnarok director will return to the MCU to helm Thor 4, the first fourth film in a series that Marvel Studios has committed to so far. Waititi will write and direct the fourth installment in the Thor franchise, which will presumably once again see Chris Hemsworth‘s God of Thunder charming us all with his impeccable abs and comedic timing. Waititi is a busy guy, and his name has been attached to several projects – most notably the long-gestating live-action Akira. But now that film is on hold indefinitely, and it might be time to throw in the towel on that project altogether.
