Avengers Infinity War Title Card Header

When Iron Man was first released in 2008, no one believed that Marvel Studios would ever released an Avengers film. It sounded like a pipe dream. But here we are, entering the comic book movie studio’s 10th year, and not only have we gotten two Avengers films, but we are getting two more, and even more superhero titles. It’s hard to imagine that these could exist without the support of fans.

Now as we anxiously await the release of the Avengers: Infinity War trailer, Marvel Studios has released a video announcing that it will hit the web tomorrow. Check out it out below.

Avengers: Infinity War

Avengers: Infinity War and the still-untitled Avengers 4 will mark the end of the current MCU, but will also usher in a new beginning for it. As the shared universe expands, so do their titles, with the Marvel Studios looking to other heroes in upcoming films Black Panther and Captain Marvel to take it to places fans could never have dreamed of. But the two films also mean we will have to say goodbye to some of the actors who have donned their suits before the first Avengers film.

Marvel Studios Vanity Fair header

Marvel Studios has launched a successful superhero shared universe and will have four Avengers ensemble films. Getting even one with six heroes sharing the screen was a crazy enough idea as it is. But here we are, 17 films in, and the Marvel Cinematic Universe is still expanding and shows no signs of slowing down. But the future of its characters remains uncertain because much of the cast’s contracts are expiring by the end of Avengers 4. Still, there’s a lot of good and great to look back on. And in these newly released Vanity Fair covers, we are finding out what Marvel Studios has in store for their universe and what the cast thinks about leaving their characters behind. Check out the covers out here below.

Marvel Cinematic Universe Rankings

Marvel will be releasing Thor: Ragnarok this coming weekend. It’s the 17th film they’ve released as a part of their ongoing successful Marvel Cinematic Universe. Not all of Marvel Studios’ films are built the same, but they are a part of the larger universe that they are building. Each one of them serving its purpose that is leading towards a much bigger picture. So with each and every new installment comes its praises and criticisms.

While it is easy to say that every new Marvel Studios film is better than the last, the truth is some are not. So let’s revisit our list by ranking all 17 Marvel Cinematic Universe films and seeing where Thor: Ragnarok places.

10 Things We Learned At Marvel’s ‘Thor: Ragnarok’ Press Day

Thor: Ragnarok header image

It’s pretty much safe to say that Thor: Ragnarok will be a game changer, as it not only takes the Thor franchise in a new direction but the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe as well. And a lot of that is thanks in part to Marvel Studios’ president Kevin Feige giving director Taika Waititi the freedom he needed to tell the story that he wanted to tell while also being confined to the rules of the MCU. The sequel is a bombastic thrill ride from start to finish and is finally a Thor movie that everyone can enjoy.

We were recently invited to sit down with our fellow journalists to talk to Feige and Waititi, as well as stars Chris Hemsworth (Thor), Mark Ruffalo (Bruce Banner/Hulk), Tom Hiddleston (Loki), Tessa Thompson (Valkyrie), Cate Blanchett (Hela), Jeff Goldblum (Grandmaster), Karl Urban (Executioner), and Rachel House (Topaz). During the event, we learned about the Taika effect, missing Asgardians, Hulk finally getting some dialogue, what the newcomers have to say about joining the universe, and much more. Read more below about the top ten things we heard at the Thor: Ragnarok press conference.

Thor: Ragnarok header image

While the Avengers deal with end of the world conflicts, and the Guardians of the Galaxy protect the galaxy, it’s up to the Revengers to defend the realms. You’ve never heard of the Revengers? Well, they will appear in the upcoming Thor: Ragnarok and are made up of Thor (Chris Hemsworth), Hulk (Mark Ruffalo), Valkyrie (Tessa Thompson), and Loki (Tom Hiddleston). Four unlikely banished heroes who unite to defend Asgard from Hela (Cate Blanchett) bringing the Asgardian apocalyptic event known as Ragnarok.

The highly anticipated sequel has already earned some high praise from critics (you can read our review here), and now to get people even more psyched for the film, Marvel Studios has released a new featurette about the Revengers and their quest to defeat Hela.

Check out the latest featurette for the film below.

How Heavy Metal and Yo Gabba Gabba Help Influenced The ‘Thor: Ragnarok’ Score

Thor Ragnarok Tessa Thompson

Shooting a movie can be a grueling process for everyone on set. And one way that directors can make it easier for everyone is to play music. Though the choice can vary from director to director, most would agree that these productions are a lot easier to go through if everyone is loosened up. And director Taika Waititi made Thor: Ragnarok a lot of fun with shifting the franchise in a new direction with the heavy metal vibes.

Geeks of Doom recently sat down with fellow members of the press at the Thor: Ragnarok junket, where we learned more about the process of making the film, and the music that played while on set. But as for the film’s heavy metal look, Waititi said he had the full support of everyone over at Marvel Studios. In doing so, he gave us an absolute bombastic film that looks like it was pulled straight off a heavy metal cover art and tons of fun.

But that isn’t the only musical inspiration behind Thor: Ragnarok. In fact, there was another band that helped influence the film. And I use that term very loosely. There were a couple of Yo Gabba Gabba songs that helped the cast get through the production. Find out more about this in the full story below.

Movie Review: Marvel’s Thor: Ragnarok

Thor: Ragnarok header

Marvel’s Thor: Ragnarok
Director: Taika Waititi
Screenwriter: Eric Pearson, Craig Kyle, Christopher Yost
Cast: Chris Hemsworth, Tom Hiddleston, Cate Blanchett, Idris Elba, Jeff Goldblum, Tessa Thompson, Karl Urban, Mark Ruffalo, Anthony Hopkins
Distributor: Walt Disney Studios
Rated PG-13 | 130 Minutes
Release Date: November 5, 2017

Though the Marvel’s Thor franchise has long been considered one of the weakest franchises in the MCU, it is by far the funniest. It never took itself too seriously, as it should considering this is a superhero film dealing with an Asgardian god trying to navigate through human customs and cultures. And perhaps its strength is also its greatest weakness. But its success spawned not only multiple sequels, but Thor’s inclusion in other films like the Avengers and Doctor Strange. So while we know what to expect from a Thor film, it finally took two of them to fully realize what it should have fully embraced.

Taika Waititi‘s Thor: Ragnarok is a fantastic Thor flick from start to finish. Full of humor and action, it is true sequel to the first film by recognizing that it is a Thor film, while being tons of fun, whimsical, humorous, and then some. In a lot of ways, the film is a reinvention of the franchise, using its heavy metal look to give the character a surprising (and in some cases) a much-needed facelift. It can be a bit flawed thanks in part to the threads that are forced to connect itself to the MCU. But since that will always be an element in play for all these films, it doesn’t take away from the fun of it. My full review below.
