Thor Ragnarok

Did you hear there’s a new Avengers movie coming this month? No? It’s not like they’ve been advertising it or anything. Just around the corner, we’ve got Avengers: Endgame bringing an end to The Infinity Saga. But after that, we don’t have an official slate of movies that has been announced by Marvel Studios. Of course, that doesn’t mean Marvel isn’t hard at work getting their slate together. Not only do we have a good idea of the movies that will be shooting in the next couple years, but Kevin Feige recently teased a five-year plan for the next era of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. And now we have one more movie revealed that might be part of the line-up: Thor 4. Read More »

Future Marvel Movie Release Schedule - Marvel Studios

With Avengers: Endgame right around the corner, we’re getting closer to learning exactly what Marvel Studios has planned for the future. But as Kevin Feige previously said, any solid plans for the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe won’t be officially announced until after Spider-Man: Far From Home hits theaters in July. However, we at least know where one of Marvel’s future movies will be shooting.

Disney’s acquisition of 21st Century Fox included taking ownership of Fox Studios Australia in Sydney, and the federal government has agreed to provide Disney with a $171.1 million subsidy for Marvel Studios to shoot a film there. But what is the next Marvel movie shooting in Australia? Read More »

(Welcome to Road to Endgame, where we revisit all 22 movies of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and ask, “How did we get here?” In this edition: Thor sets a new tone for the MCU, but continues its muddled approach to warfare.)

After three relatively grounded sci-fi action flicks, the Marvel Cinematic Universe took a leap of faith and ventured into the cosmos. While Iron Man and The Incredible Hulk established the series’ shaky politics, Kenneth Branagh’s Thor redefines the visual and tonal language of the MCU. However, the film still falls back on the major problems of its predecessors, in the way that it frames its conflict.

While messy from a character standpoint, the finished product walks a line that was, at the time, unique in the superhero genre. It straddles two distinct tones that often seem at loggerheads: Earth-bound naturalism, and operatic space-drama. This combination of styles would re-appear in Guardians of the Galaxy, in which they’re married far more smoothly, but their wild clash in Branagh’s Thor feels textually appropriate. It’s what the film is about at its core.

Marvel Movie Visual Effects - Spider-Man: Homecoming

Over the years, we’ve featured plenty of visual effects breakdowns for blockbusters movies. Many of the most impressive displays come from Marvel Studios, especially when it comes to creating entire environments from scratch, turning blue screen covered streets and scaffolds into a completely different location. Entire characters are created using a mix of visual effects and motion capture technology. It’s movie magic at its finest, and now a new video takes a look back at the years of outstanding Marvel movie visual effects by showing us what the film’s scenes looked like without them. Read More »
