Planet Hulk

Any hopes of a solo Hulk film have been continually shot down time and time again, and it doesn’t look like the character will be getting one anytime soon. However, that isn’t stopping Marvel Studios from finding creative ways to incorporate Hulk story arcs into the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Rumors of Hulk appearing in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 supported the idea that we would get to see a Planet Hulk arc on the big screen. James Gunn quickly shot them down. But those rumors quickly popped back up when it was announced that Hulk would appear in Thor: Ragnarok.

We saw hints of Planet Hulk when we saw concept art of Hulk wearing his signature gladiator armor. Now after months of rumors and speculation, director Taika Waititi has confirmed Thor: Ragnarok will be using elements of Planet Hulk by saying audiences will be paying a visit to the gladiator planet Sakaar. Check out the full story below.

Thor: Ragnarok Logo

All of Marvel Studios’ films have a different tone and vibe to them, each of which makes them special and unique in their own way. But one particular title fans are interested in is Thor: Ragnarok. When the studio first premiered the new look of the title at San Diego Comic-Con this year, it got fans talking. Soon enough, we got a better idea of what kind of tone to expect when it was confirmed that Devo artist Mark Mothersbaugh was brought in to do the score.

The film will hit theaters next year, so expect Marvel to kick off the marketing campaign soon after Doctor Strange. But director Taika Waititi (What We Do in the Shadows) is getting a bit of a head start by talking a little about the film. Check out what he had to say below.

Thor: Ragnarok Logo

Avant-garde musician Mark Mothersbaugh became an icon of 1980’s rock when he helped found the offbeat band Devo and he has composed original music scores for over 170 films and television shows. He’s long been the go-to music man for directors such as Wes Anderson and the team of Phil Lord and Chris Miller, and now it looks he’ll be bringing his particular brand of quirky, energetic movie melodies to the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Mothersbaugh has been hired to provide the score for next year’s Thor: Ragnarok, which is currently filming in Australia under director Taika Waititi (What We Do in the Shadows). Chris Hemsworth and Tom Hiddleston, respectively, are returning as the heroic, hammer-wielding God of Thunder and his villainous brother Loki.

In Memoriam: Musicians Who Died In 2014

As 2014 is just about at an end, we take a moment at Geeks Of Doom to remember the fallen musicians who left us this year. A large array of heavyweights, cult heroes, pioneering figures, and sentimental favorites are among those who have left us in a physical sense, but the memories that they made in the past and the ones that each of their fans have in regards to them will never leave.

A list of some of our (and probably yours as well) fallen heroes is below.

Bob Casale

Bob Casale, who was a key musical figure in Devo, a band that was at the forefront of the new wave movement in the late 1970s with their seminal irresistible smash hit “Whip It,” passed away on February 17, 2014 from heart failure. He was 61.

Born Robert Edward Casale Jr., but credited as “Bob2” in the band, the Kent, OH native’s passing was confirmed by his brother, bandmate, and Devo founder Gerald Casale, who posted the news to the official Devo Facebook page. Casale, who played guitar and keyboards, was a member of Devo during what is arguably the band’s zenith, from 1976 to 1991. He was also a current member of the band as well, having returned to it back in 1996, when Devo reformed after a five-year separation.

The aforementioned best-known hit was released in 1980 on their third album, Freedom of Choice. Also on this Greatest Hits compilation are other priceless gems like “Girl U Want,” “Jocko Homo,” and their cover of the Rolling Stones’ “(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction.” Devo’s quirky new-wave sound holds up well decade after decade, making this $5 MP3 deal a sound investment in your future fun.
