Despite having a strong presence in both of the Avengers movies, Thor’s standalone films have definitely been the most disappointing of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. This fact is not lost on Thor himself, Chris Hemsworth, who admits it’s time to do “something different” in the upcoming Thor: Ragnarok and that something different is comedy.
Chris Hemsworth certainly looks the part of a man who’s been stranded at sea; at least 30 pounds lighter than his Thor physique. The shabby clothes hang off him like a kid playing dress up with his parents’ clothes. Don’t get me wrong: behind the beard, the dirt and the sackcloths, Chris Hemsworth is still a pretty handsome dude (it’s almost not fair). I was able to speak with Hemsworth for a few moments about what it was like to build up all that muscle, lose it again, and then have to build it all back up.
Mirror, mirror on the wall, what Snow White sequel is the least Snow White-y of them all?
SNL bounced back nicely from Donald Trump this past weekend with The Hunger Games star Elizabeth Banks, looking even bigger this coming Saturday with Matthew McConaughey and Adele, but December 2015 will really go all out.

In the Norse mythological tradition, the term Ragnarök refers to a great series of cataclysmic events through which the slate of Earth may be struck completely, wiped clean, and started anew. It’s like a slightly more optimistic version of the apocalypse, wherein two survivors will begin again in a purer, kinder world. So when Marvel revealed that the third installment in Thor’s solo series of films would be titled Thor: Ragnarok, everyone knew what was up. This is not Thor: Day at the Beach or Thor: Light Picnic. In the parlance of “the streets,” it’s going down.
Update: Deadline is now reporting that Ruffalo is nearing a deal with Marvel to reprise the role of Bruce Banner / Hulk in Thor: Ragnarok, confirming this week's earlier rumor that the actor would appear alongside Chris Hemsworth in the third Thor...
Big news from the land of Asgard; stuff so surprising not even Heimdall could have seen it coming.
The latest trailer for Ron Howard’s In the Heart of the Sea has arrived, promising an epic, harrowing showdown between Thor and Spider-Man and a great white sperm whale. Okay, it’s not actually the Marvel heroes, but Chris Hemsworth and Tom Holland do star in Howard’s upcoming film, which recounts the horrific true story of the Essex whaling ship and the crew’s encounter with a gigantic whale, which later inspired Herman Melville’s Moby Dick.
