This week, a bunch of my friends are in Los Angeles gearing-up for the red carpet premiere of THOR: RAGNAROK, and while the rest of us have a few more weeks to go before we get to experience the glory of a Thor/Hulk team-up, Marvel Studios is keeping those teasers coming, and the latest focuses on Hela - the Goddess of Death. See Cate Blanchett get "Hela Good" in the featurette below!
Continuing an initiative to encourage young girls to explore the superpower of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) first launched during the ramp-up to Captain America: Civil War, Disney, Marvel Studios, Dolby Laboratories, Synchrony Bank, the American Association for the Advancement of Science, Broadcom MASTERS and the Society for Science & the Public have announced the nationwide MARVEL STUDIOS’ THOR: RAGNAROK SUPERPOWER OF STEM CHALLENGE.
This new event launches in conjunction with the November 3, 2017 theatrical release of Marvel Studios’ Thor: Ragnarok, starring Chris Hemsworth, Tom Hiddleston, Cate Blanchett, Idris Elba, Jeff Goldblum, Tessa Thompson, Karl Urban, Mark Ruffalo and Anthony Hopkins.
Thor and Loki, working together and smiling? Thor and Hulk, sitting together while having a conversation about their mutual love of fire? What kind of madness is coming to the Marvel Cinematic Universe this November? In the just-revealed new trailer for THOR: RAGNAROK (which made its debut at SDCC), we get a new look at what looks like the superhero buddy movie we've been missing and just didn't know it. It just looks like everyone is having a ton of fun, and as part of the bigger picture, there's a real sci-fi vibe that makes THOR: RAGNAROK a perfect bridge to when our mighty Asgardian comes face-to-face with the GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY when AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR hits theaters next year. Take a look...
Despite being entertaining, the THOR films have always been sort of a sidenote to the Marvel Cinematic Universe for me. Good, yes - but I've just never anticipated them in the same way that I have Captain America, Iron Man, etc. That just changed with the first teaser for THOR: RAGNAROK, the third "solo" Thor outing, and one that looks like it certainly took a few cues from the "fun" factor of Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy. Check it out below, and crank up your speakers - Led Zeppelin's "Immigrant Song" provides the soundtrack!
Looking ahead at the calendar for the next 12 months, it's clear that 2017 is going to be a big year at the movies. At the head of the pack, The Walt Disney Studios have announced their formal slate for the next year, including titles from Disney, Disney•Pixar, Marvel Studios and Lucasfilm. Let's take a look at what's in store...
We've covered Hasbro's MARVEL Super Hero Mashers here on the site for well over a year now, going back to when they first launched. For the uninitiated, Hasbro's Hero Mashers line has been a runaway hit - moving beyond just "Super" Heroes, and into the realms of TRANSFORMERS, JURASSIC PARK and STAR WARS (and you can combine ALL OF THEM). It was a new play pattern (that's since been copied by other toymakers) that taps into kids' natural instinct to pull their figures apart and make their own, original, "Frankenstein" creations. Thing is, back in the day, that would equal a lot of broken toys. Not anymore. When I was working on Hasbro's #SummerOfMarvel promotion not long ago, the last thing we received was something I'd saved for my annual Holiday Wish Guide - the MARVEL Super Hero Mashers Ultimate Avengers Set. This 22-piece collection is fine starting off point, or a great addition to any kid's existing collection, offering little Avengers the opportunity to build a new hero from a variety of familiar pieces.
