Marvel's critically debated 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' earned itself a bit of movie credit in only the second episode, sneaking in a cameo for Samuel L. Jackson's Nick Fury, but at long last our first true movie superhero has arrived. Lady Sif herself (and a personal favorite), Jaimie Alexander, will drop by the 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' in an upcoming episode!
It's time to hail the King!
When Marvel first unveiled the details to the upcoming 'Thor: The Dark World' Blu-ray release, fans were intrigued by one detail included among the extra features -- an all-new Marvel One-Shot. While the project was originally shrouded in mystery, the first photos and details from the short film have been release, and it centers around -- yup, you guessed it -- 'Iron Man 3' star Ben Kingsley!
In the Marvel comic books, Thor has a ridiculous number of friends, foes and potential love interests, ranging from the bewilderingly cosmic to the mortal and mundane. Although the two 'Thor' films have done an admirable job of bringing an assortment of these characters to live, they've barely even scratched the surface of what Asgard has to offer. In fact, it turns out that 'Thor: The Dark World' originally featured another comic book mainstay, but she got cut early on in development. Thankfully, newly released concept art lets us take a look at what could have been.
'Thor: The Dark World' rocked the summer box office with glorious purpose and will soon, no doubt, do the same for DVD and Blu-ray sales. The Blu-ray edition will strike store shelves this February 25, and some of the features revealed -- one in particular -- will be a nice surprise for Marvel fans.
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.
In 'Thor: The Dark World,' Chris Hemsworth stars as the titular hero, on a mission to save the Nine Realms -- and his lady, Jane Foster, of course -- from total destruction at the hands of an evil Dark Elf. The latest Marvel film thunders into theaters this weekend and features an amazing cast, including Natalie Portman, Tom Hiddleston, and more. Join us as we take a look back at the cast of the film way back before they were famous.
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.
'Thor 2' will take movie goers into the depths of 'The Dark World' and introduce us to a few not-so-famous comic book villains from the Marvel universe -- the Dark Elves, led by Malekith the Accursed and his right-hand man and lieutenant Algrim/Kurse. Before you see the Asgardian Avenger's next solo adventure, we spoke with Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, who plays the latter character(s), to offer a primer to this new race of villains and his experience with tackling two roles at once.
If there's one scene people could not stop repeating after watching all those various 'Thor 2' trailers, it was Chris Hemsworth smashing a giant rock creature to itty-bitty pieces and asking, "Anyone else?" Before you see the sequel in theaters this weekend, take an extended look at that scene.
