Thor: Ragnarok header image

Marvel’s Thor: Ragnarok
Blu-ray | Digital
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
Digital Release date: February 20, 2018
Blu-ray Release Date: March 6, 2018

Despite some of the tonal inconsistencies the Thor franchise has had in the past, Thor: Ragnarok feels like the defining Thor film. Chris Hemsworth returns to reprise his role as the title character he has played since 2011, and the third installment features a brand new first: the addition of a fellow Avenger, the Incredible Hulk (Mark Ruffalo). Director Taika Waititi takes the title character in the direction the franchise should have followed since the very beginning. By embracing the comedic potential and letting Waititi tell the story that he wants, turning Thor: Ragnarok into a hilarious action-filled adventure. While Ragnarok will hit store shelves on March 6, 2018, the digital version has been available since late February.

Along with the film, this home release is chock full of bonus features — the cover Thor, the first ten years of Marvel, Valkyrie and Hela, the source material that inspired the film, and of course, the return of Darryl.

It’s hard to believe that 10 years ago, Iron Man kicked off a large shared superhero movie universe in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Marvel Studios has released 17 films, with an 18th hitting theaters next week. And to commemorate the large event, they are bringing all the heroes together for Avengers: Infinity War. The film will feature over 80 actors, reprising their heroic roles in a bout with Thanos. And just before the ensemble events of the century hits theaters this summer, Marvel Studios has brought the gang together for one unforgettable photo.

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.

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.

‘Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 3’ To Set Up Films For The Next 20 Years

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 header image

It’s a well-known fact that Marvel Studios is planning ahead for the Marvel Cinematic Universe and that they have films set in place until at least until 2020. But the only people who know what the MCU will look like after Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers 4 are those who are working very closely on the films. It’s pretty safe to say that nothing will be the same after the two mega-ensembles, but the one person who might have the answers is the director of Guardians of the Galaxy and its sequel, James Gunn.

During a Facebook Live Session, Gunn was able to give us a small peek into the future of the MCU. A future where Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 not only helps set up the next 10 to 20 years of the MCU but also expands its cosmic universe. More on the story and the video below.

MARVEL'S THE AVENGERS #3

Nick Fury has been a major part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe since the very beginning. While Samuel L. Jackson‘s roles have been supporting ones, there is no doubt he plays a key part in the MCU. But he has been noticeably absent during the events of Phase 3.

Who knows what he would have done during Captain America: Civil War. And now it appears he won’t have a role in other films like Avengers: Infinity War, the untitled Avengers 4, and Black Panther. See what Jackson had to say below.

A Better Look At Spider-Man’s New Suit That Will Appear In ‘Avengers: Infinity War’

Spider-Man: Homecoming

At one point in time, a superhero will get a costume change. We are seeing a lot of this happen in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, usually with Iron Man and Captain America. But towards the end of Spider-Man: Homecoming, we saw that Peter Parker would be given a new suit if he took the offer to become an Avenger. Of course, he declined, but that doesn’t mean it was the last time we would see the suit.

That’s because it appeared once again during the Avengers: Infinity War trailer that was shown this summer at both D23 Expo and the San Diego Comic-Con. But Spidey fans barely got any time to familiarize themselves with it as it was shown for only a brief moment. Now, they will be able to see the full suit. So, if you want to take a look, check out the full image here below.
