When Marvel kicks off its enormous Phase Three slate this summer with Captain America: Civil War, almost all of the current Marvel Cinematic Universe characters will be present, except two, Thor (Chris Hemsworth) and Hulk (Mark Ruffalo). These characters will be reuniting next year in Thor: Ragnarok, which will take them both on a "cosmic road trip." Director Taika Waititi recently spoke with Hitfix, where he teased that they're considering how "verbal" the Hulk should be and that he'll be much smarter this time around.
"It's interesting, because at the moment, there's a big conversation that's happening about how far to push that. Whether or not The Hulk should be [verbal/conscious]. I think a lot of those conversations have more to do with what's going to come up in future movies. So I think a lot of those decisions are larger group decisions, rather than anything to do with just me or the writer. »
Lately, a lot of the news concerning Thor: Ragnarok has revolved around The Hulk.s involvement and Cate Blanchett.s rumored villain, but what about the existing players in the God of Thunder.s world? So far the only characters are Thor himself (obviously), Loki and Lady Sif, though there.s a strong possibility that Odin will be back as well. Meanwhile, there are still quite a few who have yet to be officially announced for a return, including Volstagg, one of the Warriors Three. Actor Ray Stevenson previously expressed hope he would be involved with Thor: Ragnarok, and three months later, he.s still not sure if he.ll reprise Volstagg this time around. As he told Reel Film News: I.m not sure, to be honest with you. . Would I love to be involved in that? I hope so. However, even if I.m not, I just wish »
With Thor: Ragnarok set to start production this summer in Australia, there have been no shortage of rumors swirling around the project over the past few weeks. A report surfaced last week that the villain of this story is Hela, who may be portrayed by Cate Blanchett. And we also know that Mark Ruffalo is returning as Hulk. Ray Stevenson, who played Volstagg in Thor and Thor: The Dark World, recently revealed in an interview with Geeks Worldwide that he still isn't sure yet if he is returning as this character.
"I'm still in the dark in regards to that, but I'm absolutely blown away to be apart of something that so influential and integral in a part of our generation in regards to movie watching and this Marvel Universe. Its absolutely incredible and if there's a place for Volstagg then great, but right now I don't know. He was great to play. »
Will the movie also bring back familiar faces like The Warriors Three, though? Ray Stevenson (who plays Volstagg in the Thor movies) was asked what he knows about Thor: Ragnarok in a recent interview, and had this to say about the next instalment in the Marvel franchise.
“I’m absolutely blown away to be a part of something that so influential and integral in a part of our generation in regards to movie watching and this Marvel Universe. It’s absolutely incredible and if there’s a place for Volstagg then great, but right now I don’t know. He was great to play. Vikings in space!”

“I’m still in the dark in regards to that,” Ray Stevenson told Geeks World Wide when asked about returning as Volstagg the Voluminous in the much-anticipated Thor: Ragnarok. This is not too surprising given director Taika Waititi has said many times that the Marvel threequel is in its early stages and that it’s still being decided which characters are involved. However, Stevenson is just happy to be a part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. “I’m absolutely blown away to be a part of something that so influential and integral in a part of our generation in regards to movie watching and this Marvel Universe,” he said. “It’s absolutely incredible and if there’s a place for Volstagg then great, but right now I don’t know. He was great to play. Vikings in space!” During a separate interview with Reel Film News, Ray Stevenson had reiterated »
It may not have been a masterpiece, but Punisher: War Zone did a great job bringing Frank Castle to the big screen in a way which reflected his portrayal in the comic books. While Thomas Jane remains a fan-favourite version of the character, I for one have always preferred Ray Stevenson, and Lexi Alexander brought a lot to the table with the movie (despite it not being a critical or commercial hit). In the video below, the filmmaker - who will soon turn her sights to Supergirl - weighs in on the experience of making Punisher: War Zone and the reception it subsequently received from fans. I like it. The other day somebody put a clip up -- the famous parkour grenade shooting -- and here's the thing: This was the time people started getting $300 million to make [comic book movies]. I think [Christopher] Nolan was just making the second "Dark Knight" -- we heard $300 million, »
Willam Shatner doesn’t slow down. His career is still moving at warp speed with his one man show, a new book (on his friendship with Leonard Nimoy) and a nationwide concert tour that showcases the music of all of Star Trek. We talk about all that as well as his passion for film making. Plus former Punisher Ray Stevenson is back at being bad, this time as Blackbeard in the new season of Black Sails on Starz (premiering tomorrow). How accurate is the portrayal and which other famous pirate is he constantly compared to?

After igniting a new dystopian sub-genre under the Ya umbrella and storming to box office success, it’s almost difficult to believe that after four movies Lionsgate’s The Hunger Games franchise has wrapped up – for now, at least – but those movie series and adaptations it helped spawn are still entering theaters.
Some, such as Chloë Grace Moretz-fronted invasion drama The 5th Wave, are compelling extensions of the formula, though among the new wave of Ya adaptations it is Summit Entertainment’s The Divergent Series that has struggled to replicate the success of its peers – financially and otherwise. Hoping to turn the tide is the first installment in the franchise’s two-part conclusion, Allegiant.
