19 films into the Marvel Cinematic Universe, it seems like the one thing Marvel Studios can’t get right (and has actually gotten worse) is Tom Hiddleston‘s Loki wigs. Seriously. When the first Thor film hit in 2011, the shorter-hair on the God of Lies and Mischief looked pretty good- downright natural and easy. “I remember when I […]
Thor: The Dark World
Marvel has had a bit of a villain problem in some of their movies. It mostly seems to be because the villains have never really been the primary focus of the movies. The heroes and the world have always been the primary focal points, while the villains come in third — leaving some of them […]
From Bleeding Cool reporter Erin Wilhelm: When you attend a con, you always have the chance to accidentally see an awesome panel that you may not have planned on attending. This happened to me today on the very first day of my very first SDCC. I was in a room early waiting for the next […]
While some were surprised when Natalie Portman was found to be missing from the Thor: Ragnarok cast list, others assumed her character was being held back for another installment. But as she told the Wall Street Journal (via Ain’t It Cool News), she is “done” with her Marvel obligations. The actress played Jane Foster in […]
If playing Mr. Eko on Lost, Heavy Duty in G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra and Kurse in Thor: The Dark World was not enough to solidify actor Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje’s place in geek culture… he has now signed on to play Malko on the HBO hit series Game of Thrones. And if you don’t read […]
I did the Sideshow Collectibles / Hot Toys Predator figure review typed up with pictures, but I figured since I’m actually out of town at a convention this weekend, I’d do the review of the Thor sixth-scale figure from Thor: The Dark World on video. Now I’m still working the kinks out here, I can […]
Guardians of the Galaxy opened #1 in every international market except one, Korea. There it came in a distant fourth. It fell behind home-grown new blockbuster Roaring Currents and last week’s release Kundo: Age Of The Rampant which took the top two slots. Third place went to How To Train Your Dragon 2. Guardians did open to numbers up 25% […]
Those who thought Marvel was crazy for putting together a movie based on C (or even D) list characters have 94 million reasons to apologize. Guardians of the Galaxy ended up taking in $94 million over the weekend according to BOM, wiping away the previous record held by The Bourne Ultimatium which bowed at $69.3 […]
What explains the sudden clatter of clapperboards in Old London Town? The weather? the Tax breaks? the ineluctable lure of our windswept mayor?
Well, that’s certainly well coordinated. This preview doesn’t look too spoilery, but I have a high tolerance for such things… Post by Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
Tommy Zimmer writes; Chris Yost is making big waves in both the comics and cinematic community. I have been familiar with most of his work dating back to when I was a kid watching “X-Men: Evolution” and then more recently his “The Batman” show which had to follow up on the heels of “Batman: The […]
Late night comedian/host Conan O’Brien likes to make fun of superhero movies. As you can see he’s been poking fun of the upcoming Thor: The Dark World and Captain America: The Winter Soldier. He also takes a swipe at Ben Affleck’s casting as Batman. Sadly though… he hasn’t gotten any new material as these were […]
Reviewer Michael Moran paints an intriguing picture of this one: The look of the film is luscious. The effects are quite brilliant. There are one or sequences that set the bar pretty high for anyone who might be, for example, making a Star Wars movie in the next year or two. This is, in my book, a […]
By Great Odin's Raven! It's a new Thor movie. And it's set in South London. We sent our number three South London Thor correspondent Michael Moran to find out more…
I’m hoping this is not going to be too much of a spoiler. But for those of you going to see Thor The Dark World, the following information may actually be useful. Last night, our clocks changed from British Summer Time to Greenwich Mean Time. Which means, for a couple of weeks, we are only […]
This new clip certainly seems to highlight a definite shift in tone and the look of Asgard in the upcoming sequel.
Okay, so thanks to Skype, I suddenly found myself in yesterday’s press pit for the premier of Thor: The Dark World. Unlike those around me I hadn’t seen the film. Unlike those around me, I didn’t have professional filming or recording gear. But I did have my iPad… So here are a few snatched moments […]
On my way to pick up my credentials for the Thor The Dark World premiere tonight, I came across this little object in Leicester Square, taking up most of it. In the words of Captain Hammer in Doctor Horrible…. Ah well, you remember. The Square is starting to fill… UPDATE: Here we go…
THOR POINT It’s the Thor: The Dark World premiere in London today. So naturally the weather today will be… well… BACK IN THE BULLPEN Scott Edelman visits Marie Severin. One of the things Irene did during our lunch at a nice Italian restaurant was to read Marie all of the kind things you emailed to […]
Tom Hiddleston's Loki gets his very own featurette.
