Thor #1 has a cinematic feel to its writing and art that will ease new (and lapsed) fans into the status quo as well as shutting up people, who said “female Thor” was a gimmick. (They’ll probably still complain.) Jason Aaron and Russell Dauterman open up the issue with a mythology-tinged mystery before going directly into the power struggle on Asgardia between Odin and Freyja. During all this physical and verbal action, Thor is still striving to lift Mjolnir and as such, “worthiness” is a major theme of Thor #1. Does one’s gender, royal blood, or ability to wield a magical weapon make one worthy? This debate might seem antiquated, but even in democratic republics like the United States, “background” things like gender, social class, beliefs, and ethnicity. Why has there never been a female president? »

Today's (October 1) Thor #1 introduces a new, female version of the character - whose identity has not been revealed - after the original former Thunder God is declared unworthy to wield his magical hammer, Mjolnir.
"I've been writing [Thor] for two years, and I don't plan on going anywhere anytime soon," Aaron told The Wall Street Journal.
"Anyone who's been reading my stuff can see that there's a lot of tracks being laid for future stories. I've been writing for the long term this whole time. »
Instead of trashing his ex-fiancée Miley Cyrus or sharing the dirty details of their romance, Liam Hemsworth respects her privacy. "There's not much to say; there's no bad blood there," he says inNYLON Guys' November issue. Still, he's not a fan of the paparazzi attention he received after they broke up in 2013, saying, "You never get used to it because you get followed and you get chased and it's never a fun experience. I think when people see photos of you out and about in your personal life, they assume that you've asked for it or that you want that attention, but I don't think anyone in their right mind asks for that kind of thing."
Like his older brother Chris Hemsworth, Liam is all about the work. "If you put the work in, and you show that you're willing to work hard, you'll succeed," the Hunger Games: Mockingjay . Part 1 star explains. »

You know what, I’ll watch anything from the guy that brought us Heat, but his latest thriller, Blackhat, has a major flaw that’s gonna be very very hard to look past. I’m sorry but I can’t take seriously a man with biceps thicker then my neck, not as a hacker. Chris Hemsworth is many things, […]

As Jeremy Renner continues to make the press rounds for his upcoming thriller Kill the Messenger, the actor cleared the air about a certain Captain America 3 rumor and teased new details about Avengers: Age of Ultron. And, despite claiming that he wasn't really interested in a Hawkeye solo movie last week, Renner does confirmed that he is signed on for one should Marvel deem it necessary. He then teases a possible Hawkeye/Black Widow team-up movie.
Most actors who take on a major role in any Marvel movie sign multi-picture deals that will span several years. When asked about his own Marvel contract, Jeremy Renner says the deal includes Marvel's The Avengers, next year's Avengers: Age of Ultron and The Avengers 3, along with a possible Hawkeye spin-off movie:
Ed Helms stars as Rusty Griswold, the now-adult son of Clark (Chevy Chase) and Ellen Griswold (Beverly D'Angelo), who takes his wife (Christina Applegate) and their sons (Skyler Gisondo and Steele Stebbins) on a road trip vacation to Walley World, America's greatest amusement park.
New Line’s reboot-sequel to the hilarious 80s National Lampoon franchise has added two more names to its cast today, as Key & Peele‘s Keegan-Michael Key and About Last Night‘s Regina Hall have opted into the crazy shenanigans of Vacation.
Key and Hall will join the boot-quel as “family friends of the Griswolds that are described as the perfect family.” The Griswolds, this time around, are no longer the eccentric Clark and Ellen – played by Chevy Chase and Beverly D’Angelo in the original. Taking over in the family’s battered station wagon will be their grown-up son, Rusty Griswold (Ed Helms), who takes his wife Debbie (Christina Applegate) and their two sons on a cross country road trip to relive one of the best summers of his youth.

Having been absent from Marvel’s slate of Phase Two movies, Jeremy Renner’s Hawkeye is set to return to the Marvel Cinematic Universe in May alongside the rest of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes in Avengers: Age of Ultron, and the actor has taken a moment to discuss his role in the hotly-anticipated sequel during an interview with Starplus (via Cbm).
“It was fun to finally kind of discover who Clint Barton is a little bit. We have some good secrets revealed. I think everything that was great about the first Avengers, is exponentially expressed in this one. From the action, to the making fun of itself, and there’s a lot more time spent with the Avengers together, after being so separated in the first one. We’ve got some great new goodies, and some good baddies.”
There’s also been talk that Hawkeye could reunite with Chris Evans »

They’re going to Walley World, America’s greatest amusement park.
Hall and Key will play family friends of the Griswolds that are described as “the perfect family.”

Thor is going country.
TheWrap reports that Chris Hemsworth will produce and star in the movie based on Steve Earle's book, I'll Never Get Out of This World Alive. The 2011 novel by the Grammy-winning country star tells a fictional tale of Toby "Doc" Ebersole, the physician accused of giving Hank Williams a fatal dose of morphine. Ten years after the country music pioneer's death, his doctor is without a license and is supporting his own morphine habit by performing illegal abortions. Feeding his addiction further, Ebersole is haunted by Williams' ghost. »
Ben Affleck made an appearance on Live! with Kelly and Michael earlier today to promote Gone Girl, and as you might expect, talk soon turned to Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. These questions were a little different however, and the actor was quizzed on working out to become the Caped Crusader, revealing some surprising inspiration in the process! "I have been getting bigger, yeah. I have been working out a lot. These are not roles that you can do and not exercise for. Audiences have now increasing expectations. Like, in the 50s, you could just be like Burt Lancaster and tall. That was ok, but now you see guys like Chris Hemsworth and Chris Evans and all these guys whose bodies are just, you think, 'How is that even possible?'" Comparisons have been made between those two cast members of The Avengers and the very buff Ben Affleck, »
As if you needed another reason to head to theaters to see Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar, we have reports that the first Avengers: Age of Ultron teaser trailer will play ahead of it in theaters. If you are Russian, you will definitely get to see the Avengers teaser, as Warner Bros. Russia has announced that it will be attached to the space odyssey in that country. It makes sense for that to be true here in the States as well, given that Interstellar’s November 7 (U.S.) release date puts it almost exactly six months ahead of Age of Ultron’s May 1, 2015 (also U.S.) release date. That’s about when the Marvel PR machine starts rolling things out. They also usually put their trailers online a few days before theatrical release, so come back at the end of October/beginning of November to watch it here.

Though he’s still best known for his comedy work alongside Jordan Peele on Us TV, Keegan-Michael Key has been making a name as a reliable laugh-grabber in supporting film roles. The team behind the new sequel-reboot Vacation clearly think he’d add to the mirth, hiring him to appear alongside Regina Hall.John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein are making their joint directorial debut with the film, which finds the grown Rusty Griswold (Ed Helms) taking his wife (Christina Applegate) and his children on a cross-country trip to replicate the one his father took years ago. The plan is to end up at Walley World.This being a Vacation film, of course, nothing is quite as simple as it sounds. Key and Hall are on board to play family friends of the Griswolds who appear to be annoyingly perfect. They join a cast that also includes Leslie Mann and »
"...when 'Tony Stark' tries to jump start a dormant peacekeeping program, things go awry and Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, including 'Iron Man', 'Captain America', 'Thor', 'The Incredible Hulk', 'Black Widow' and 'Hawkeye', are put to the ultimate test as the fate of the planet hangs in the balance.
"As the villainous 'Ultron' emerges, it is up to 'The Avengers' to stop him from enacting his terrible plans, and soon uneasy alliances and unexpected action pave the way for an epic and unique global adventure.
