Do you live near a Cinemark Theater? If so, carve out some time starting Friday to take a big screen trip back through the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
We’re entering the home stretch of the long wait until we get to experience Taika Waititi’s vision for Thor: Ragnarok and see a bunch of wacky aliens fight in space to please Jeff Goldblum. But just because we already know an awful lot about the movie doesn’t mean that there isn’t more to learn.
Full disclosure: I’ve had a fair amount of cold medication today. But this mashup a) works far better than it has any right to; and b) Donkey as Loki may have actually caused me to get sicker when the shock destroyed my immune system.
When Thor faces the fall of Asgard and a trip into outer space in the upcoming Thor: Ragnarok, he’s going to do it with a new, shorter hairdo and a full-on Sadness Beard. It’s a look that has at least one major fan in Chris Hemsworth himself.
Welcome back to Toy Aisle, io9's weekly roundup of the latest plastic behemoths that are going to drain away all your spare change. This week, there’s a Justice League blowout, including our best look yet at the movie’s ferocious villain. Plus, a truly fabulous Magneto figure, and the world’s most impractical Thor…
Second only to Toy Fair back in February, this past weekend’s San Diego Comic-Con brought us more toy news than our wallets can reasonably take. Many of the reveals were only available on the convention floor, but there will still plenty of announcements you can look forward to as we creep closer to the holidays.…
The amount of technical and artistic skill that it’s taken to create nearly everything about Thor: Ragnarok from the movie itself to its gorgeous advertisements is almost unimaginable. The same goes for the life-sized Lego Thor that appeared at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con.
As far as movie posters go, Marvel’s official one for Ragnarok is pretty damned great as is. It’s bright, it’s fun, it conveys a sense of drama and action while also showing off the ridiculously over-qualified cast that’s going to bring the film to life. Given how awesome it is, there are few things that could make it…
Jane Foster became the Thor when the original Thor’s (Odinson) magical hammer Mjolnir deemed him unworthy and chose Jane as its new wielder. While Odinson’s been slogging his way through a beer-fueled existential crisis, Thor’s spent her time living up to her new role as Asgard’s goddess of thunder.
Making an exclusive “build-a-figure” that’s only available by purchasing several others is a marketing tactic that toy collectors often have to endure. But after watching the first spectacular trailer for Thor: Ragnarok, we want every figure in Hasbro’s new Marvel Legends Series six-inch line, including the giant…
Over the course of Secret Empire, we’ve seen Stevil Rogers toy and play with the heroes of the Marvel Universe—from corrupting the Avengers, to wielding Mjolnir for his own. In his rise to dictatorship Steve has done all he can to twist his old life into a tool of Hydra... and now he’s planning to do it with the…
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.
