WandaVision

Marvel Studios’ Disney+ shows will be an extension of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, more so than what Marvel Television has been in the past. These shows will be directly connected to the MCU. Some might even lead into films, like WandaVision. The series will bring back Elizabeth Olsen as Wanda Maximoff aka Scarlet Witch and Paul Bettany as Vision.

Based on what we’ve heard in the past, the series will have a ’50s vibe to it. At the time, it was unclear what that meant. However, while at the D23 Expo Kevin Feige and director Matt Shakman, as well as Olsen and Bettany, took to the stage to give attendees an idea of what to expect and share a few more surprises as well. Like the additions of Kat Dennings (Thor) and Randall Park (Ant-Man and the Wasp), both of whom will be reprising their respective roles as Darcy and Agent Jimmy Woo. More on the report below.

Kat Dennings In Thor

Thor: The Dark World wouldn’t be as much fun of a sequel without Kat Dennings, who starred in Thor as a political science student who gets misplaced with the wrong internship and caught up in the battle of the cosmos along with Natalie Portman and Stellen Skarsgard. Her quick wit and sarcasm provided some great humor for the movie and now she is officially signed on to appear in the sequel, which is expected to start shooting this fall.

As to the reason why it might have taken so long to get her signed on, well, it’s because of her commitment to the hit CBS comedy, Two Broke Girls. According to Deadline, all of that has been worked out. She even gets an expanded role in the sequel, which means she could do more than just mispronounce Mjolnir on multiple occasions. She certainly deserves to do more than just spew out a few witty one-liners. So we’ll see what she can do when the time comes.

Movie Review: Thor

Week of Geek: Thor

Thor
Directed by Kenneth Branagh
Starring: Chris Hemsworth, Anthony Hopkins, Natalie Portman, Stellan Skarsgard, Kat Dennings, Tom Hiddleston, Clark Gregg, Idris Elba
Release Date: May 6, 2011

“Can I come home?”

Rarely do we hear these words come from a man of enormous stature. It is hard to conceive a man who hasn’t felt the anguish of defeat utter these words while in a state of utter helplessness. It is only right that we become even more incredulous when we have a God asking “Can I come home?” Thor, the long blond-haired hammer-pounding God of Thunder, and zealously worshipped during the Viking Age of what is referred to as Norse mythology, has become overwhelmed by the time he asks the dejected question. Prior to this Thor (Chris Hemsworth) has endured brutal battles occurring in the magical realm of Asgard. He has dealt with familial angst between his father and King of Asgard, Odin (Anthony Hopkins) and his brother, Loki (Tom Hiddleston). But all has taken an immense toll on Thor and he is unable to maintain any kind of emotional balance, causing his potency and permanence as a war-thirsty God to become less formidable. Instead, he is rendered humble, disconsolate, and love stricken. A once-fierce God enjoying the pleasures of immortality, Thor needs to redefine his life as he suffers, emotionally and physically, the uncomfortable truths of mortality.

Thor: Hammer of the Gods

If you found yourself spending hours playing Angry Birds, then here’s something even better: a new online game called Thor: Hammer of The Gods.

In this free web game, which is a tie-in to Marvel’s upcoming Thor movie, you fight in Asgard as Thor against the Frost Giants. When you defeat enough enemies — by throwing the mighty Mjolnir, Thor’s hammer! — in a certain amount of rounds, it unlocks trophies, which contain footage from the film and character bios. You can also choose to sign into the game through your Facebook account so you can compete against others.

I’m not going to lie, this game is addictive. Once you wield the power of Mjolnir, you just can’t stop! Check out my badass score in the screenshot above — not bad for my first try! (I probably would have done better had I maybe read the brief instructions on how throw the hammer, but I don’t have the patience for that.)

Week of Geek: San Diego Comic Con International 2010

Marvel Studios Thor Chris HemsworthMarvel Studios gave fans at 2010 San Diego Comic-Con the very first look at their upcoming 3D feature film Thor, which isn’t due in theaters until 2011.

The panel included Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman, Tom Hiddleston, Clark Gregg, Kat Dennings, and director Kenneth Branagh, as well as producer Kevin Feige.

One valuable piece of information about the film was disclosed by director Branagh concerning Thor’s mortal life.

“We have some Don Blake surprises in this movie. So do not assume that he is not included,” Branagh revealed.

As far as the video they screened, I was ultimately satisfied. The 3D elements didn’t overpower the overall visuals and instead (at least from what I saw) added texture and a bit of depth to a few scenes. See the full description of the footage here below.

I’ll admit I was worried the movie was far too plastic and bright judging from the screen shots they provided in the week prior to SDCC. But I am happy to say that from the footage screened to the audience, I am fairly confident they could actually pull this off.

Marvel Chief Joe Quesada Talks ‘Thor’; Kat Dennings’ Role Revealed

The Movie God   |  @   |

Marvel Editor-in-Chief Joe Quesada recently answered a pile of questions for Comic Book Resources, and among the topics, the Thor movie adaptation was naturally one of the prime topics covered. Quesada was asked how confident that he was in the the project and how he answers to those who remain skeptical of Thor’s ability to work as a movie and become the next mega-franchises.

While it’s obvious that Quesada wasn’t going to say anything negative about a property in which he holds massive stake in, it is still interesting enough to read what him and others like them are seeing from the film makers. He talks about how we the movie-goers — whether fans of Thor or not — will go in expecting one thing or another, and that none of us will get what we expect. He also goes on to talk about how unbelievably passionate director Kenneth Branagh is when he’s directing, and what he thinks while watching him work.

Click over and continue reading to check out the massive quote from Quesada. You can also head over to the link above to check out a bunch more questions and answers from the Marvel chief.
