The Thor Corps., a squad of Marvel heroes like Storm and Dazzler who all wielded different versions of Mjolnir, was one of the more novel ideas to come out of 2015's Secret Wars event. In this week’s The Mighty Thor, one of the Mjolnirs that went missing post-Secret Wars has suddenly shown up—with a brand new owner.
Welcome back to Toy Aisle, io9's weekly roundup of the fanciest toys around. This week we’re already hiding our wallets from amazing SDCC exclusives, plus Hot Toys teases its next Wonder Woman figure, Thor: Ragnarok comes to Lego, and a Transformer turns into a giant medieval dragon. No, really!
Years before Patty Jenkins directed Wonder Woman, she was linked to another superhero: Thor. Jenkins was the first director attached to what would become 2013's Thor: The Dark World, but she left the project long before cameras started rolling.
Where does the Hulk sleep? Well, wherever the hell he wants. But when the big green guy’s at home, apparently, he curls up in one of the most weirdly majestic and oddly toothy beds you will ever see.
It’s been almost two years since Marvel bid farewell to the Ultimate comics universe it began in 2000—smashing it right into its “main” universe to kick off Secret Wars with a multiversal bang. But in the past new years of the “All-New, All-Different” universe, a few elements of Ultimate Marvel have lived on.
The Phoenix Force is one of the deadliest entities in the entire Marvel universe, a roiling mass of pure destruction that leaves nothing but cinders in its wake. Usually, it’s associated with the iconic Phoenix sagas in the pages of X-Men, but now the entity is back—and playing its part in a totally unexpected story.
There are a lot of people connected to the Thor mythology floating around in Marvel comics right now. There’s Jane Foster, the current God of Thunder. There’s the Odinson, the former Thor. And there’s a mysterious new “War Thor,” the new wielder of the Ultimate Universe’s Mjolnir. And they’re about to team up.
It’s hard to remember now, but The Last Jedi wasn’t the only big trailer we got this week. On Monday we got our first look at the next Thor movie, Ragnarok, and it was also pretty great. It looks big and bold and cosmically weird in ways the past Thor movies haven’t managed before. If you thought it looked cool, well…
Thor’s latest villain—Hela, the Goddess of Death—is already proving to be his biggest rival yet in our first look at the next Thor movie. Mjolnir is gone, Asgard is sundered, and most shockingly of all: the God of Thunder’s been given a haircut.
Marvel’s cinematic universe is all connected... in theory. When it comes to the TV shows, they have to be as vague as they can when they refer to a character or event from the films—while the films ignore them wholesale. Here’s a round up of the silliest avoidances from across Daredevil, Luke Cage, Jessica Jones, and …
A few years ago, an omnipotently powered Nick Fury spoke a single sentence to Thor. It was something so profoundly soul-stirring that his ability to wield Mjolnir was wrenched from him, and he became nothing more than the Odinson rather than the God of Thunder. Now we finally know what those words were.
We’ve known for a while that Jane Foster (Natalie Portman), the astrophysicist who also happened to be Thor’s love interest in the God of Thunder’s first two movies, was not appearing in Thor: Ragnarok. At first, Marvel’s answer was simply that most of the movie wouldn’t take place on Earth, where humans like Jane…
We’ve finally got a lot more official details about the plot to Thor: Ragnarok, and while there is a lot of Planet Hulk going on, there seems to be a significant lack of, well, Ragnarok in the description we have so far.
Marvel’s God of Thunder is going to look a little bit different in his next movie. Entertainment Weekly has revealed our first glimpse at the movie, teasing a radically differently looking Thor, as well as our first full looks at Cate Blanchett and Tessa Thompson in action as Hela and Valkyrie, respectively.
Hasbro revealed a ton of new Marvel toys at Toy Fair this year—covering everything from the Marvel Cinematic Universe, to comic book favorites. The thing I might be most excited by however is this A-Force six pack, but with both Monica Rambeau and Elsa Bloodstone, it might as well be the Nextwave figure set of my…
At last year’s Toy Fair Hasbro made it a lot easier for Marvel fans to live out their superhero fantasies without requiring an Avengers-sized budget. The company’s detailed but affordable role-play line is expanding this year with two new accessories for Thor fans, and those who wish they could join the Guardians of…
Darryl and Thor are back, and I can’t lie—I’m currently more excited to see the rest of this short right now than I am Thor: Ragnarok itself.
Doctor Strange was a perfectly serviceable and forgettable movie that isn’t on anyone’s “must watch” list. But now that the Blu-ray is going to have a sequel to the hilarious Thor mockumentary that introduced us to Thor’s beleaguered roommate, Darryl? Sign me up.
