avengers infinity war characters

Avengers: Infinity War is the culmination of 18 movies over the course of 10 years — a whole cinematic universe reaching its zenith in a battle for the fate of humanity and beyond. Directors Joe and Anthony Russo have a lot on their plate juggling the multiple storylines that have led to this film, not to mention the plethora of characters that will populate the story.

So just how many comic book characters will appear in Infinity War? No exact number has been confirmed yet, but previous reports confirm that it will be more than 60. Now we have the latest (still to-be-confirmed) number from star Chris Hemsworth: 76.

most rented redbox movies

Movie theaters may be losing audiences at an alarming rate, and the streaming service field may be increasingly cluttered, but at least we’ll always have home video, right? Right…?

Renting a physical DVD or Blu-ray of your favorite movie still hasn’t lost its magic, even when the renting process shifted from your local rental store (RIP) to the bright red kiosk that populates every superstore or drug store. And while Blockbuster and local video stores were put out of business long ago, Redbox has stuck around, handling a vast percentage of physical movie rentals. In honor of its 15 anniversary this year, Redbox has released its top 15 movie rentals. And this list is…erm…a bit disappointing.

evolution of thor 5

When Chris Hemsworth‘s Thor made his hammer-smashing debut in the Marvel Cinematic Universe in 2011, his character was ripped directly from comic book pages, staying true to his origins and persona – a noble warrior whose sole reason for existing is to protect his home world of Asgard, his people, and the rest of the nine realms. In the greater timeline of the MCU, Thor appears in his own stand-alone trilogy (Thor, Thor: The Dark World, Thor: Ragnarok), two ensemble films (The Avengers, Avengers: Age of Ultron) and Doctor Strange.

Thor: Ragnarok (the last film in the trilogy) is a welcome and drastic change from his previous films. Thor is so remarkably different that we barely recognize the original God of Thunder, especially with his snazzy new haircut. And It’s not just Thor – the entire film has a completely contrasting tone and aesthetic compared to the rest of the trilogy. Director Taika Watiti took Thor out of a dark world of doom and gloom and tossed him into a whimsical rainbow.

Throughout his screen time in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Thor noticeably transforms from a serious, wise warrior into a goofball (bordering on big buffoon) with a magical hammer. Although fans adore this new light-hearted, funny guy version of Thor, we’re still asking, “since when did Thor become a comedian?”
