BREAKING MOVIE NEWS
Chris Hemsworth stopped by Saturday Night Live last night to host the late night sketch show for the very first time. Among a handful of funny bits involving the Australian actor was the ďAvengers News Report,Ē which saw Thor and his fellow gang of Marvel superheroes celebrating victory in the city streets after defeating the menacing robotic supervillain Ultron. Watch the clip below.
Itís been an especially exciting, edifying 24 hours for fans who have been anxiously awaiting Avengers: Age of Ultron. With the buzz generated by the new trailer still resonating heavily, an interesting new featurette has been released that focuses on the various high-tech weaponry, both new and familiar that will be brandished by the Marvel mega-team in the upcoming super-sequel.
Do you love Marvel movies? Do you love them so much that you could watch them for 29 straight hours? Well, then I have some amazing news for you, as two of the nation's biggest theater chains are planning marathons of that very nature leading up to special early screenings of The Avengers: Age of Ultron.
Marvel's Avengers: Age of Ultron will absolutely be one of the biggest summer blockbusters of 2015, bringing together an ultimate cast of characters, including Black Widow, Iron Man, Captain America, Hawkeye, Hulk, Scarlet Witch, Falcon, Nick Fury, Vision and Ultron. Getting some solo treatment in the upcoming film's latest poster is none other than the Asgardian warrior and God of Thunder, Thor. Check it out here.
Amazing as it is to see all of the core members of The Avengers unifying on the big screen, itís certainly more narratively fulfilling if there is a reason for all of the heroes to be together. Fortunately, this appears to be very much in the cards for the blockbuster Ė at least for Thor, who will be bringing a very interesting element to the table in the fight against the movieís titular villain.
Staying true to the characterís comic book origin as a somewhat Shakespearean royal figure, Thor has earned a reputation as being a bit of an uptight figure in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. This was true through the end of Thor: The Dark World, but, interestingly, this attitude is going to be getting a bit of a facelift in Joss Whedonís The Avengers: Age of Ultron.
Marvel and Sony have set aside their differences are working together to bring Spider-Man into the cinematic universe of the Avengers! What are the odds that some of our favorite MCU characters will be popping up in a Spider-Man movie?
Joss Whedon has said he most likely wonít return to helm Avengers: Infinity War. But what about some of the filmmakers of Marvelís past? Kenneth Branagh, the man who directed the first Thor movie, was asked about whether heíd ever return to the MCU, and he seems game for it.
There are three well-known names that are supposedly being looked at by Marvel to direct 2017ís Thor: Ragnarok. Here are the frontrunners and what their chances are for joining the project.
In recent months, weíve seen reports about actors getting into talks with Marvel only to balk at the idea of signing long multi-picture deals Ė the performers fearing that locking themselves to a role might prevent them from pursuing other creative endeavors. This is definitely not an issue for Chris Hemsworth.

A bona-fide Marvel nut has created an instructional video on how you can make a 12 hour and fifteen minute Marvel super film! And it looks rather immense.
Many Asgardians will fall in battle when Thor: Ragnarok hit theaters in 2017. Here are the rankings of each major Thor characterís chances of dying a glorious death and entering Valhalla.
For now, Thor: Ragnarok is in the writing and planning stages, and there are multiple Marvel stones that need to drop into the MCU sea before all hell breaks loose in Asgard. Look for the chaos on screen in July 2017.
Is Elba wrong about the process? No. Iíve been on enough movie sets to know that building a massive world like Asgard Ė or any component of the Marvel universe Ė is a grueling task. But if Elba finds it so torturous, donít do it.
When last we saw Tom Hiddleston's mischievous Loki, he'd fooled his half brother Thor (Chris Hemsworth) and had secured his spot on Asgard's throne. It was the visual equivalent of Marvel placing a pin in the beloved on-screen villain, knowing that they would use him at a later date. Now we know when that date will be.

There is now a massive threat looming over the Marvel Cinematic Universe. No, Iím not talking about Thanos, Iím talking about Civil War. Last night it was revealed that the massively popular 2006 comic book crossover will soon be coming to the big screen in the form of the MCUís Phase Three. We expect the consequences of the events to be tremendous, with at least some casualties. But who will be biting the bullet?
Of course, nothing has been made official by Marvel or Tom Hiddleston (do you expect them to give away the death of a big character?), but weíve been staring into our Crystal Ball of Speculation and have put together some pieces suggesting that Lokiís days on the big screen may be numbered. What could seal his fate? Read on to find out.
For years and years "Whosoever holds this hammer, if he be worthy, shall possess the power of Thor" has been the phrase found inscribed on the side of Mjolnir, the great and powerful Uru-carved weapon possessed by the mentioned God of Thunder. Unfortunately, that line is a bit too gender specific for these modern times, and with a major change coming in the world of the great Marvel Comics character known as Thor, so must the phrase be changed as well.
Tom Hiddleston's Loki isn't a titular lead in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, instead losing the spotlight to both Chris Hemsworth's Thor and the collective Avengers, but some fans don't seem to think that's really fair. Hence why we now have the "feature" below, which is a re-edited cut of Thor, The Avengers and Thor: The Dark World called Loki: Brother of Thor:
Above is a neat-o little video regarding the history of the onscreen Marvel universe, and the various nods and Easter Eggs regarding each film thus far - from the studio's first (Iron Man) to its tenth, this weekend's Guardians Of The Galaxy. Well, technically its eighth, since it stops before Captain America: The Winter Soldier, which doesn't hit Blu-ray/ DVD until September 9th.
You'd think the God of Thunder could summon up some lightning to mess with Ultron, but that's basically my understanding of movie technology speaking: everyone knows a lightning strike makes even the most innocuous machine go haywire.
While the first 25 episodes of Hero Blend focused solely largely on superhero adaptations both at the movies and on television, this week weíre going back to the source. Marvel has made two huge announcements about a couple of their biggest characters, and it has sent a shockwave through the entire comic book-appreciating world.
Marvel made an unexpected move today by announcing the mantle (and Mjolnir) of Thor will be handed over to a woman. Though this is a measure only being taken in Marvel comics (for now), the internet has exploded with reactions, both positive and negative.
