It has all lead up to this movie. When Marvel launched it's cinematic universe with Iron Man back in 2008 nobody could have ever imaged the expansive film franchise to follow. Now, ten years later every character and storyline brought to the big screen since then is converging in Avengers: Infinity War.
What do you get when you have just about every major character from the Marvel Cinematic Universe on one stage? Well over the weekend we had just that as Marvel assembled just about every member of the press for a Avengers: Infinity War junket. Because this happened before the premiere and release of Infinity War, not much was discussed about the plot. So you can watch this guilt free, there is no need to worry about spoilers. (sorry for the shaky cam. I forgot my tripod.)
The Broken Lizard boys are back in uniform 17 years after the release of their cult classic comedy Super Troopers. But does Super Troopers 2 prove that a sequel can stand the test of too much time in between or is it too little too late? Check out my review MEOW!
It comes as no surprise that everyone is going out of their way to see Marvel's Black Panther. Right now the movie is destroying it at the box office and is breaking records along the way.
But two fans put in a little extra effort to see Black Panther at a discounted rate. Twitter user @stevelikescups posted this video online showing a suspiciously tall theater patron standing in line to buy tickets. See the video below:
It's pretty obvious that this is just one person sitting on the shoulders of another while wearing the longest trench coat known to man. As you might imagine, their attempt at getting two in to the movie for the price of one didn't go over too well. But if nothing at all, it made for a good laugh as others standing in line gathered to take pictures and videos of the unusually tall mystery man.
A couple of new deleted scenes from Thor: Ragnarok have popped up online for your viewing enjoyment. Both of them feature the lovable Jeff Goldblum as the Grandmaster.
The first video shows Grandmaster instructing Loki (Tom Hiddleston) and Valkyrie (Tessa Thompson) to find Thor (Chris Hemsworth) and Hulk (Mark Ruffalo). Grandmaster waves his hand to signify that Loki and Valkyrie need to leave, but neither of them seems to initially understand that. The rest of the scene plays out like a game of charades. Goldblum mimes different "universal symbols" to Topaz (Rachel House).
The second clip features the ruler of Sakaar getting annoyed by some type of alien bats that are swarming around as he makes The God of Thunder's acquaintance.
Writers of the film say the Grandmaster role was almost completely different when it was unclear if Goldblum would take the part.
"There are so many different ways you can go with that character. He could be a power-hungry monster. Or he's cool and vindictive. And they're like, 'We're going to Jeff Goldblum.' And I'm like, 'Got it.' And then at one point they came back and said it's not going to work out. I’m like, 'No! Who's going to do all this now?'"
Golblum eventually signed on for the role, and brought so much color and insanity to Ragnarok.
Thor: Ragnarok will be released on Digital HD on February 20, while the Blu-ray arriving in stores on March 6.
Thor: Ragnarok actress Tessa Thompson says she's "hopeful" that Marvel might spotlight women with an all-female movie in Marvel Studios' Phase 4. While speaking on the red carpet of her latest movie Annihilation, she told IGN that there's definitely "an interest" in an all-female movie.
"I'm not Marvel so I can't make it happen, but I can tell you that Marvel is hugely collaborative, I think our even our Thor [Ragnarok] movie was basically the product of conversations they'd had with Chris [Hemsworth] and with Mark [Ruffalo] about what they wanted to do next. I think [Marvel boss] Kevin Feige is really excited by the idea, and if you look at what's happened already in Phase 4 with me and [Thompson's character] Valkyrie and our story, and then in Black Panther the women rule supreme.
"There's an interest - they're doing Captain Marvel, they're doing a Black Widow - there's an interest in having women at the forefront of this phase. I feel like it's hopeful, who knows."
Thompson played the kick-ass new character Valkyrie in Thor: Ragnarok and is currently starring in Annihilation, the sci-fi thriller from director Alex Garland (Ex Machina). She the one that initially brought the idea to Kevin Feige, and he said that it could happen. Karen Gillan also said that now is the right time for it. If it does happen, it would make sense for it to be a Lady Liberator film.
Would you like to see Marvel move forward with this all-female movie?
