Production on Marvel’s Thor: Love and Thunder is currently underway down in Australia. Director Taika Waititi is back to direct after being at the helm of Thor: Ragnarok, and Chris Hemsworth is returning as the god of thunder. However, Marvel is shaking up the franchise a bit by bringing back Natalie Portman as Jane Foster, who will be taking on the mantle of The Mighty Thor herself. But that’s not the only surprise that Marvel Studios has in store for fans.

There will be two Thor: Love and Thunder cameos that no one would have expected to see. How do we know? Spy photos of the movie currently in production caught two stars on set in full wardrobe, and believe us when we say that you’d probably enjoy them more if you avoided this revelation.

And each new project has only delivered diminishing returns, each less funny and more insulting than the last. And now, McCarthy and Falcone are teaming up again for God’s Favorite Idiot, a Netflix workplace comedy series.

Superintelligence Featurette

Just last week, the underwhelming first trailer for Melissa McCarthy‘s new comedy Superintelligence arrived with a whimper. The movie from director Ben Falcone was intended to be released in theaters in December 2019, but it has now been relegated to a release on HBO Max during Thanksgiving weekend. Perhaps that’s because the movie looks like a strange mesh of sci-fi and romance that doesn’t make much sense, and not even a new Superintelligence featurette can sell it properly. Read More »
