In a surprise to a lot of people, Marvel and Disney released the official trailer for Avengers: Endgame, giving us our biggest look yet at the most anticipated film of the year. Our surviving heroes — Iron Man, Captain America, Black Widow, Hawkeye, War Machine, Thor, Nebula, Rocket, and Ant-Man — gear up for battle against Thanos and they happen to be joined by a now, newly familiar face.
“In Norse mythology, Ragnarök is a series of future events, including a great battle, foretold to ultimately result in the death of a number of major figures (including the gods Odin, Thor, Týr, Freyr, Heimdallr, and Loki), the occurrence of various natural disasters, and the subsequent submersion of the world in water.”
While Thor: Ragnarök still is a while away, there have been several updates recently, all following rumors of some hiccups in production. Around the beginning of the year we reported about the rumored, now confirmed, casting of Cate Blanchett as Hela the Goddess of Death. Mark Ruffalo is also confirmed as he reprises his role as Bruce Banner.
Of all the upcoming Marvel films Thor: Ragnarok seems to be the hardest to find a lead on. Up until now most of the news for the next Thor film has been rumors. The movie doesnt come out for another year and a half so I suppose that’s fair.
However, the new rumor (which is most likely true, and they are just waiting to sign the papers) is that Cate Blanchett will be cast as the main villain – Hela, Goddess of Death.
There are magnificent things happening in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. With shows like Daredevil and Jessica Jones on Netflix, Captain America: Civil War preparing for release, more Avengers movies in the works AND a third Thor movie, The Walt Disney Company has figured out that the biggest audience in the world right now is almost completely inhabited by nerds. A lot of those nerds have been die-hard comic book fans for generations. Seeing their heroes on the big screen is something every nerd has dreamt about and Disney/Marvel have been making those dreams come true.
Jacob Kurtzberg, better known as Jack “The King” Kirby, passed away back in 1994, but he would have been 98 if he’d lived to today. In honor of that birthday, we wanted to put out a list of his 98 best creations . . . which would have represented a very, very small percentage of his output. And with such a rich catalog, a best of list is very, very hard to put together in any methodological manner.
Instead, we thought we’d share our favorite Kirby creations in a slightly more digestible list, which ranges from the weird to the heroic, from the goofy to the outlandish, from the innovative to the arch-evil – yet are, to an item, wonderfully creative:
It’s crazy how successful the line of films based on the world’s most popular superhero team has been. We’ve entered an age where a ton of Marvel Comics’ properties are getting ready for another wave of big efforts on the big screen. It may seem a bit daunting to get into the universe centering on The Avengers, which is why author Peter A. David put together a book that will make team history easier to comprehend.
A number of the press were recently invited to a special Marvel Studios event, with very little details to go on. Today the crowd gathered in anticipation, with rumors and speculation running rampant, especially considering the recent news that Benedict Cumberbatch may take on the role of Doctor Strange. Kevin Feige took to the stage to show the new trailer for Avengers: Age of Ultron, which has been seen by over 70 million people. He was also there to make a few announcements, which he called “Comic-Con level news.” And he did not disappoint.
Following in the footsteps of the recent Warner Bros. film slate announcement, Kevin Feige and Joss Whedon announced the next 8 films from Marvel Studios, revealing titles for upcoming sequels, as well as introducing some new faces for the Marvel Cinematic Universe. After a brief recap of the first 10 films of the MCU by Joss Whedon, which made over $7 billion, the first sequel title was announced. We’re going to move pretty fast through these announcements today, with a more in-depth examination to follow.
