To the delight of the Comic-Con 2014 attendees, Marvel spent a great deal of time toting around its 'Avengers 2' and 'Ant-Man' casts, but refrained from giving us many updates on the future film slate. They did officially announce 'Guardians of the Galaxy 2' for 2017, but what about 'Thor 3'? We caught up with the Asgardian himself, Chris Hemsworth, on the Marvel press line following the panel to get an update.
When the first photo was released of the cast of 'Star Wars: Episode VII,' there was a significant backlash at the lack of women in that photo. (The female side of the cast has grown since that photo was released.) For all the success that Marvel Studios has experienced since 2008's 'Iron Man,' what they haven't yet pulled off is a female-led standalone film. Now, a Captain Marvel (aka Ms. Marvel) movie is heavily rumored to be happening at some point, but until that happens, does Marvel President Kevin Feige think about the potential backlash if that doesn't happen soon?
This week, Marvel made a pretty major announcement on 'The View': Thor will no longer be a man. Thor will be a woman. Of course, the change is likely only temporary, but along with announcing that the Falcon will be replacing Steve Rogers as Captain America, the company is making some pretty diverse and exciting changes that set some interesting precedents -- precedents that could influence the way we perceive and accept these characters on screen, as well.
In news that will probably baffle comic book fans and normal people alike, it was revealed that Thor (yes, the Avenger) is no longer worthy of his title and will be replaced by a woman.
Yes, you are allowed to unleash a collective "What?!" right about now.
On May 30, Marvel Entertainment and Victory Hill Exhibitions launched Marvel's Avengers S.T.A.T.I.O.N. at Discovery Time Square, the same NYC location that housed such immersive experiences as 'Harry Potter: The Exhibition' and LEGO's 'Art of the Brick.' This time around Marvel fans of all ages will be able to dive into this cinematic universe like never before by becoming S.H.I.E.L.D. agents and witnessing the science behind these superheroes through interactive activities and props, costumes and set pieces from the movies.
While we'll likely never see Spider-Man fighting side by side on the big screen with the Avengers, you can see all your favorite heroes teaming up in a different arena with Marvel Universe LIVE!, a new traveling production set to hit the road this summer. And now you can go behind the scenes with this new featurette on the upcoming production, which unites all your favorite Marvel heroes and villains for one spectacular show.
With the release of ‘Captain America: The Winter Soldier,’ we now have our ninth film of the Marvel Studios continuity since the first ‘Iron Man’ debuted in 2008. It’s a weird thing, these movies have happened so relatively fast, re-watching them now, it’s hard not to have that, Oh, that’s right, Jeff Bridges was actually in ‘Iron Man’ moment. The Marvel movies come so quickly, it almost feels like an analogy to the current state of hyper-accelerated culture itself.
Anyway, here’s a ranking of all of the one-movie-only peripheral Marvel characters played by known actors that we haven’t quite forgotten, but at least deserve to be remembered as part of an Internet list. (Marvel One-Shot short films do not count.)
Marvel’s ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ assembles its latest installment in “Yes Men,” as 'Thor''s Lady Sif (Jaimie Alexander) arrives to Earth in pursuit of the villainous Lorelei (Elena Satine), while Coulson wrestles with his secret knowledge of Skye's miraculous recovery.
Previous ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ episode “T.A.H.I.T.I.” saw the race to save Skye bringing Coulson and fellow S.H.I.E.L.D. agent John Garrett (Bill Paxton) to the unknown facility responsible for Coulson's resurrection, deepening the mystery of its origins even further, so how does ABC’s ‘Avengers‘-adjacent series keep us marveling at its inaugural season?
Read on for your in-depth recap of everything you need to know about ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’’s fifteenth episode, “Yes Men!”
This past week's 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' installment, "T.A.H.I.T.I.," teased an Asgardian arrival in its final moments, but next week's "Yes Men" will bring quite possibly our favorite of all. Check out Jaimie Alexander arriving to Earth as 'Thor' character Lady Sif in a new sneak peek from 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.''s "Yes Men"!
Marvel's 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' brought back a bit of credibility in recent weeks, as we learned from "T.R.A.C.K.S." that seasonal guest character Mike Peterson (J. August Richards) was in fact being groomed for an incarnation of comic character Deathlok. But March 11 installment "Yes Men" will prove the most Marvel-ous one yet. 'Thor' star Jaimie Alexander will suit up as Lady Sif for the coming episode, the first photo from which appeared online!
