Now that we have Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 and Spider-Man: Homecoming out of the way, we’re down to just one more release from Marvel Studios, and it has the chance of being the best one yet. Though the aforementioned additions to the Marvel Cinematic Universe were satisfying in their own way, the next adventure featuring The Avengers’ own God of Thunder looks surprisingly good.
Thor: Ragnarok released its first trailer back in April, letting Led Zeppelin drive the exciting, colorful, cosmic adventure from Hunt for the Wilderpeople and What We Do in the Shadows director Taika Waititi. Now a new Thor: Ragnarok trailer gives us an even better glimpse at the Marvel sequel, which looks to be the best film in Thor’s own franchise to date.

Today brought Doctor Strange, Marvel’s most recent addition to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, to Digital HD. Since Marvel has some of the most rabid fans, they’ve already been combing over the special features for the home video release of the mystical superhero’s first adventure. One such feature includes a sneak peek at what’s in store for Phase 3 of the MCU, including some new concept art for the next installment of the Thor franchise.
Thor: Ragnarok is going to mix the franchise up a bit by taking Thor (Chris Hemsworth) on an adventure to the other side of the universe instead of heading back to Earth for the bulk of the action. Asgard is facing its biggest threat yet, but perhaps the toughest challenge the God of Thunder has to face before that is battling The Incredible Hulk (Mark Ruffalo), this time in a cosmic gladiator arena. The new piece of Thor Ragnarok concept art shows Thor and Hulk battling yet again after their first encounter in The Avengers, but it looks a little more intense this time. Check it out. Read More »
Ever since Thanos was revealed in the mid-credits scene for The Avengers, fans have been waiting to see just what kind of havoc the comic book villain was going to wreak in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The character finally appeared again in Guardians of the Galaxy, voiced by Josh Brolin, but he pretty much just did a lot of sitting and threatening while everyone else did his work for him. Plus, he hasn’t gotten ahold of any of the Infinity Stones. He even lost the one he already had in his possession, giving it away to Loki.
But as the credits scene for The Avengers: Age of Ultron teased, we’re on the verge of Thanos taking matters into his own hands now. However, according to Kevin Feige, that doesn’t mean we’re going to see the Mad Titan pop up in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. Read More »

Making one good movie is hard enough. Since 2008, Marvel Studios has been making one or two per year. If the films continue to be successful, company president Kevin Feige says that number could potentially double.
