Last week, Jane Foster, Marvel’s Mighty Thor, fought her final battle. As far as we know, she is no more, and a relaunch of the Thor series that will see the Odinson restored as the God of Thunder is coming. It’s a sad time, because Jane’s arrival heralded one of the best continuous runs on a comic in recent Marvel…
Since last October, Mighty Thor has been running a storyline called “The Death of Mighty Thor.” This week, that storyline lived up to its name.
Christopher Eccleston has rarely been diplomatic in discussing why he took roles in blockbuster comic book movies like G.I.Joe or Thor: The Dark World. But his latest declaration about the times he grabbed glitzy Hollywood roles for the cash might just be his strongest burn yet.
With price tags starting around $200, collecting Hot Toys can be a dangerous hobby. To put it another way, if collecting Hot Toys is a disease, the release of a movie like Avengers: Infinity War is the outbreak that could wipe all the collectors out.
Few Marvel films have reimagined a character as radically as Thor: Ragnarok. Director Taika Waititi took the things fans already loved about the character, filtered them through a new visual palette and added more jokes than almost any other Marvel movie. The result is probably one of the most rewatchable films in the…
It’s easy to see why this scene was ultimately cut out of Thor: Ragnarok—it doesn’t really have much to add to the movie’s context, other than to cram even more jokes into a film already delectably stuffed with them. It does, however, feature Jeff Goldblum caressing himself with tentacles, which is a sight the world…
Thor: Ragnarok wasn’t scheduled to be available for digital download until February 19, with physical discs in stores for purchase a few days later. But after a high-definition copy of the film was briefly made available over the weekend on the streaming service Vudu, thousands of people are now downloading it…
Mere months after the release of Thor: Ragnarok, Chris Hemsworth is done with Thor—on paper, at least. He’s finished filming Avengers: Infinity War as well as Avengers 4 and those two films mark the end of his contract.
Two years ago, we all fell in love with Darryl—Thor’s roommate and co-star in a pair of short films directed by Taika Waititi that simultaneously showed us what Thor: Ragnarok could be, and explained why Thor wasn’t in Captain America: Civil War.
The first trailer for Avengers: Infinity War, released last month, confirmed Thor’s fate from his latest solo film: He lost his eye and is now wearing a patch. This reveal left a few fans surprised and a bit confused, as early photos and footage from San Diego Comic-Con showed Thor with 20/20 vision. Does this mean…
Last week, Marvel announced a new Exiles book, bringing with it a new team of reality-crossing heroes to fight alongside long-time Exiles member Blink. One was kept a secret, however, until now... and if you saw Thor: Ragnarok last year, she’s going to look very, very familiar.
A decade of movies has brought us to the end of a long road in the form of Avengers: Infinity War, an epic undertaking we finally got our first, glorious look at today. The trailer paints a grim future for our heroes as Thanos makes his long-awaited move, but it’s also jam-packed with hints at the war to come.
Thor: Ragnarok’s talented director Taika Waititi has become well-known for his fashion sense but his Korg “costume” on set of the Marvel movie is even more interesting to look at.
Up until Ragnorak, when it was destroyed by Hela, Thor’s Mjolnir was the perfect all-in-one-tool for everything from battling alien invaders, to flying, to even proving who in the world was truly worthy. But with this clever Mjolnir toolbox, the mighty hammer is now equally useful for small home repairs too.
Kenneth Branagh, the Shakespearean director and actor who the world’s first introduction to the MCU’s Thor, has some insights into the pressures behind one of Marvel’s first cinematic universe films.
With Tessa Thompson’s Valkyrie, Thor: Ragnarok has technically introduced the first canonically queer character to appear in the MCU, but because the only explicit nod to Valkyrie’s sexuality was ultimately cut from the film, her queerness remains almost entirely subtextual. It’s a bummer, but we can take solace in…
What could possibly be better than Cate Blanchett as Hela, the goddess of death? Laura Dern playing Cate Blanchett playing Hela, of course.
Depending on who you ask, the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s Asgardians are either actual gods who periodically descend from the heavens, or merely a race of super long-lived, technologically-advanced aliens. Either way, Thor: Ragnarok has a fair amount of proper magic thanks to a brief Doctor Strange cameo.
While Marvel’s version of Thor, the God of Thunder, didn’t hit the big screen until 2011, his history on video goes back further. A lot further, as it turns out.
