The embargo on reviews for “Thor: Ragnarok” has lifted, and TheWrap’s Umberto Gonzalez and Beatrice Verhoeven are here to give you their thoughts on Marvel’s latest. In early reviews, the film starring Chris Hemsworth, Cate Blanchett, Tom Hiddleston and Mark Ruffalo had won people over. And TheWrap’s film reporters agree with the accolades. According to Gonzalez and Verhoeven, the film should be lauded for its portrayal of women, as well as main characters, Thor and Loki. Even Hulk is hilarious in the film, and the character and plot arcs work in the third installment of the “Thor” franchise. »

Warning: Obviously Spoilers Are In This Post. Including The Ending Of The Film. If You’Re Worried About Things Being Spoiled, Get Out Right Now. Run Away And Never Return. Although Come Back For The Latest Movie News Reviews, And Opinions.
Thor: Ragnarok hits cinemas next week and we here at Flickering Myth were lucky to catch an advance screening of the movie [read our review here]. And as is tradition here at The Myth, below are is what you can expect from the post-credit sequences from the third solo movie for The God of Thunder.
With Thor now leading the Asgardian people following the destruction of their home world, The God of Thunder and his brother Loki talk about whether it’s a good idea for him to take The God of Mischief back to Earth. Thor says it will be fine because he himself is popular, and what could possibly go wrong? »

Hey, comicbook fans, it’s another Thor movie, and that can only mean one thing: It’s almost time for another Avengers movie! While you wait, Disney and Marvel Studios hope to loot another half-billion dollars or so from the world’s wallets with this outlandish amuse bouche featuring the God of Thunder and his Abs of Steel, with yet another confusing plot crudely bastardized from Norse mythology in which most of the action takes place on a parallel world you care nothing about.
Like the previous two Thor solo movies, this one is pretty much skippable, although it’s not without its pleasures — most notably, the fact that Thor’s not so solo this time around, with cameos/co-starring opportunities for the Hulk, Doctor Strange and a few leftover bits of Tony Stark’s wardrobe (including a retro Duran Duran T-shirt that’s good for a laugh). And while it’s not saying much, “Thor: Ragnarok” is easily »

There’s a brilliant moment late in “Thor: Ragnarok” in which Bruce Banner (Mark Ruffalo) propels himself out of a spaceship to help his friends in the battle below. By now, most people inundated with Marvel movies over the past decade know the drill: The shock of the free fall transforms Banner into his raging alter ego, The Hulk, who lands on both feet with a domineering thud — except this time, it doesn’t. Banner face-plants on the magic rainbow bridge of Asgard, and for a moment both sides of the conflict stand agape.
This is the essence of the energetic spark that director Taika Waititi brings to the third “Thor” movie, which injects more overt comedy to Marvel’s sprawling expanded universe than ever before. That should come as no surprise: The Kiwi director’s vampire mockumentary “What We Do In the Shadows” and last year’s “Hunt for the Wilderpeople »

Thor: Ragnarok, 2017
Directed by Taika Waititi
Imprisoned, the mighty Thor finds himself in a lethal gladiatorial contest against the Hulk, his former ally. Thor must fight for survival and race against time to prevent the all-powerful Hela from destroying his home and the Asgardian civilization.
It’s been a bumper 2017 for Marvel Studios, with two huge hits on their hands already with Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 and Spider-Man: Homecoming (though the latter was mostly Sony), and they’re rounding off the year with another trip to Asgard in Thor: Ragnarok. The third in the Thor franchise (and possibly last) is one of our final stops before we reach Avengers: Infinity War – but is it worth getting off at?
Thor finds himself in a bit of a bind. »

Google has decided to take a Lyft. The ride sharing giant announced on Thursday it has raised $1 billion in a new investment round, led by Alphabet’s CapitalG investment fund, pushing the San Francisco-based company’s valuation to $11 billion. In a blog post sharing the news, Lyft said it has just completed its 500 millionth ride and bumped its coverage up to 95 percent of the United States — up from 54 percent at the beginning of 2017.

Chris Hemsworth’s Thor is just about to get a much-needed reinvention in Taika Waititi’s upcoming Thor: Ragnarok, but already questions are springing up about a female Thor. During the press-tour for Thor: Ragnarok, Monkeys Fighting Robots got a chance to chat with Karl Urban — who plays Skurge — about his experience working on the film. One of the questions levelled at Urban was his opinion on a female Thor, to which the actor replied:
“I think it’s time. I think it’s well overdue, absolutely. I’d like to see that movie, why not.”
Comic fans will know that this idea isn’t out of the question, either, as Jane Foster actually took up Mjolnir in the comics to become the first female Thor. It doesn’t necessarily have to be Jane Foster, as the Marvel Cinematic Universe is its own thing, though it would be interesting to see her return. »

Jeff Goldblum is set to make his Marvel Cinematic Universe this month as he takes on the role of The Grandmaster in Thor: Ragnarok, but it turns out we could have seen him as part of the McU much sooner as Kevin Feige has revealed that he was wanted for a small role in Captain America: The First Avenger.
“I think we spoke to him or offered him a role in Captain America: The First Avenger,” Feige tells Uproxx. “I think the role of the senator that was part of that Uso tour in the first Captain America film. And he either wasn’t available or wasn’t interested or whatever. And thank goodness, because that would have just been a small thing and instead we got to wait for the Grandmaster, which is about as amazing as a Jeff Goldblum ‘Goldblum-iness’ could be.”
The role is question is that of Senator Brandt, »

Et's Carly Steel caught up with Lawrence, who was honored at Elle's 24th Annual Women in Hollywood Celebration presented by L'Oreal Paris, Real Is Rare and Calvin Klein on Monday -- but it was another honoree whom she couldn't get enough of.
"Margot Robbie is so pretty that I think I should just go home!" Lawrence shared. "I just caught a glimpse of her and I just want to go home."

"Oh my god, just a wave of depression," she added, before Robbie made her way down the red carpet.
"I feel the exact same way!" she gushed.

While Robbie clearly admires Lawrence as well, it's another actress whom she credits as her "career goals."

It's spoiler time, so you better stop reading if you want to go into Thor: Ragnarok clean and fresh. The movie is just a few weeks away from release. But quite a few critics and journalists have already screened the sequel for interview purposes. Though, one intrepid reporter couldn't help himself in blurting out a major Thor 3 spoiler on air. Which star Chris Hemsworth found incredibly irksome. You can see the cringe-worthy exchange in the video below.
Marvel actors are trained in not revealing spoilers of any kind, a class which Mark Ruffalo must have slept through, as evidenced by some of his behavior recently. But that won't ever stop an interviewer from saying something he shouldn't. That's fine when it's in print and Marvel can embargo the interview. But not when it's live on air, as is the case with the latest Thor: Ragnarok interview.

Early during Marvel’s Phase Three, El Mayimbe and Latino-Review shared a “hot rumour” about the studio’s plans for the Hulk, claiming that Avengers: Age of Ultron would finish with the Hulk going into space and subsequently leading to a Planet Hulk adaptation, before culminating with the World War Hulk storyline in Avengers 3.
Well, speaking to Mayimbe (now at The Wrap), Marvel Studios chief Kevin Feige has revealed that the original “scoop” was false, although Age of Ultron would have indeed suggested that the Hulk had ventured into space – something they decided to change in the wake of the report.
“You had the big scoop about us doing Planet Hulk,” said Feige. “It turned out to be accurate [but] at the time, it was not accurate because we didn’t have any plans to do it and Joss Whedon was doing Age of Ultron at that time. The way »

With a little over a week to go until Thor: Ragnarok arrives in UK cinemas, a new clip has debuted from the upcoming blockbuster threequel which sees Cate Blanchett’s Goddess of Death, Hela destroy Mjolnir, much to the surprise of Thor and Loki; check it out below along with three new images featuring Mark Ruffalo’s Hulk, Chris Hemsworth God of Thunder and Taika Waititi’s Korg…

Chris here. Okay guys, hear me out: Marvel is getting good again? Aside from business-as-usual as the Avengers arc closes, the superhero house will give us Cate Blanchett in drag for Thor, Pfeiffer in the Ant-Man sequel, and of course the most eagerly anticipated: Ryan Coogler's Black Panther.
Excuse me while I pick my eyeballs off of the floor. The goods on what Coogler has created keep getting better and better, and a brand new trailer has yours truly at a fever pitch. The amount of set pieces and plot threads already at play in this trailer suggest that it might be another bloated actioner, but there are genuine thrills everywhere, all the more rapturous for the film's existence in our current political atmosphere. Chadwick Boseman may be our star, but its most exciting element might be its celebration of black women - let's all geek out over Danai Gurira's Okoye. »

Another day, another great Thor: Ragnarok clip to feast on.
This one made its debut on The Ellen Show and gives us a look at the (hopefully temporary) fate of Thor’s hammer, Mjölnir. We’ve already seen the supposedly unstoppable weapon being easily stopped by Cate Blanchett’s villainous Hela in earlier trailers and here, we see her shatter it into a million pieces, with its loss sending Thor tumbling down the galactic hierarchy until he’s reduced to battling as a gladiatorial slave.
Given how central the hammer is to the Thor legend, it presumably won’t be out of his hands for too long and Mjölnir will no doubt need to be reforged at some point. Using this as a symbol for the titular hero to put himself back together physically and psychologically in order to best the apparently invincible Hela really seems like a no-brainer for the film. »

Cate Blanchett vs. Harry Styles! The two A-list stars have been spotted wearing similar styles lately, so who's rocking the clothes the best? Blanchett is addressing her fashion doppelganger in a new interview with Ellen DeGeneres. While making an appearance on The Ellen Show Monday, host DeGeneres shows the actress pictures of her and Styles' look-alike outfits. DeGeneres asks Blanchett in the video above, "You always have such great style...and speaking of style, Harry Styles...someone is showing pictures, have you seen these yet? That Harry Styles is copying your outfits? Have you seen this?" Blanchett looks a little confused with what's going on so DeGeneres shows her »

Cate Blanchett has a very famous style twin!
"Who wore it better?" Blanchett joked. "Who's sitting here now? If Harry comes in next week, you can change your mind, but for now [it's me.]"
"This is so random," she also commented on their matching styles.
Referring to her own outfit, Blanchett later noted, "He would look great in nude and red."
To which DeGeneres cracked, "He would look great nude."
"We've moved to the country, so we got pigs and chickens and dogs and cats," she shared. "Our cat »
When Winslet took home the Academy Award for Best Actress in 2009, for her performance in The Reader, she did not mention Weinstein, whose company financed and distributed the drama.
Speaking with the Los Angeles Times, Winslet said the omission was "absolutely deliberate."
"I remember being told, 'Make sure you thank Harvey if you win.' And I remember turning around and saying, 'No I won't. No I won't,'" she recalled. "And it was nothing to do with not being grateful. If people aren't well-behaved, why would I thank him?"
When the sexual assault and harassment scandal surrounding the powerful producer broke two weeks ago, Winslet was one of the first celebrities to condemn his alleged actions in a statement to Variety, praising the dozens »
