If you stuck around in theaters this weekend (and we're sure you did), you saw the 'Thor 2' post-credits scene and might have a few questions. (For the purposes of this article, we'll focus on the more interesting mid-credits scene and not on the sillier sequence at the very end.) So, who was that guy? And what is he talking about?
The movie may be called 'Thor: The Dark World,' and fans are certainly buying tickets to see Thor and Loki get into some serious Asgardian action, but it's the women of the film who are really kicking ass. The clever Jane Foster, the warrior Sif, Thor's mom, and even comedic relief Darcy are dialed into the action much more this time around, giving them equal stature among their male counterparts and proving once again that when it comes to female heroes, Marvel does it right.
As Joss Whedon gets closer to finishing the script for 'The Avengers 2' (officially titled 'The Avengers: Age of Ultron), the supporting cast of previous Marvel films are wondering whether they'll get a chance in the ring. For one, Cobie Smulders' Agent Maria Hill seems like a lock, and now the actress has stated that Marvel knows she'll return once again.
We're still reeling from Marvel's bombshell announcement of four new Netflix original series for 'Daredevil,' 'Jessica Jones,' 'Iron Fist' and 'Luke Cage,' eventually forming their own miniseries 'The Defenders,' but questions will continue to pour in over the long wait until 2015. For instance, does Disney believe the heroes could still lead to their own films? What about the proposed 'Agent Carter' series?
Marvel had some other big news in the realm of TV this morning, in case you've been living under a rock on Mars, but 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' still has a dog in the fight for our attention. Following news that Saffron Burrows would take the role of Agent Victoria Hand in upcoming 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' episode "The Hub," Marvel has released our first photos of the character in action with Agent Coulson.
Remember that mysterious four-series and a miniseries deal that Marvel TV had supposedly been working on a few weeks back? Well, forget all about an 'Agent Carter' spinoff to follow 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.,' it seems the Marvel heroes of Hell's Kitchen will finally get their due, as Netflix will host four new original live-action series for 'Daredevil,' 'Jessica Jones,' 'Iron Fist' and 'Luke Cage,' before an epic 'The Defenders' miniseries event!
Every Marvel movie, from 'Captain America' to 'The Avengers,' always has that epic showdown between the hero and villain, and 'Thor 2' is no different. The latest clip from the Asgardian's next solo adventure, hitting US theaters this Friday, previews the showdown between Thor and Malekith the Accursed.
Those watching Marvel's 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' with certain east coast providers last night may have missed out on next week's previews due to election coverage, but you don't have to wait any longer to check out the S.H.I.E.L.D.-y goodness of "The Hub"! The first photos of next week's episode has arrived, so what familiar S.H.I.E.L.D. faces will we see when Coulson returns to base?
While 'Thor: The Dark World' is ready to release itself on the American public this November 8, there's one other movie everyone's talking about, thanks to a small post-credits scene in the new 'Thor': 'Guardians of the Galaxy.' While we still have a ways to go before Marvel's space opera hits in 2014 -- and we even have the next 'Captain America' coming in between -- director James Gunn spoke up about loads of things to come.
