Benedict Cumberbatch Teases Doctor Strange’s Avengers: Infinity War Role

7 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

After making his debut in Doctor Strange last year, Benedict Cumberbatch’s Sorcerer Supreme looks set to play a big role in the Marvel Cinematic Universe moving forward. For starters, he’ll show up in Thor: Ragnarok in November, while he’s also going to appear in Avengers: Infinity War and its currently untitled sequel further down the road.

Considering the fact that Strange is walking around with an Infinity Stone around his neck (the Eye of Agamotto), it makes sense that he’ll play an important role in the fight against Thanos, and in a new interview, Cumberbatch weighed in on how he’s feeling about taking on such a major part here.

“What else could I be expected to say except that I’m thrilled. I feel like I’ve said it all before. It’s very exciting, it was great to be in origin film that’s »

Avengers: Infinity War Directors Tease Something Quite Mysterious

8 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Avengers: Infinity War and the untitled Avengers 4 are currently shooting in Atlanta, and will be shooting back-to-back in a massive production that is expected to last most of 2017. They will also be shooting in Scotland at some point in the near future, and brothers Joe Russo and Anthony Russo, who are directing the massive movies, will surely have their hands full for the foreseeable future. Not too busy to mess with fans a bit, and post a very confusing, hard to decipher tease though.

The Russo brothers are not what you would call very active on social media, but they do occasionally decide to post something that gets fans talking, or at the very least has them scratching their heads. That being the case, the mysterious and seldom active @Russo_Brothers Twitter account recently posted a photo that is borderline impossible to really understand, but is almost definitely a tease for Avengers: Infinity War. »

Review: Doctor Strange

15 hours ago | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

The Marvel Cinematic Universe has been very careful and deliberate as it introduces mass audiences to over 75 years of comic book continuity and conventions. Wisely, we had a handful of super-heroes before we had a team and after some hints about outer space, we had a specific look with Guardians of the Galaxy. Sooner or later, once “Stephen Strange” was name-checked in Captain America: Winter Solider, we knew a peek at the supernatural side was coming.

When Doctor Strange finally arrived last November, it was an amazing visual triumph that nicely walked us through some of how magic worked while offering up an origin story that showed a man’s hubris turned into something better. While the broad strokes make Strange and Tony Stark nearly identical, their journeys are vastly different with the former far slower to accept the consequences of his actions.

But the film, out now on disc from Disney Home Entertainment, »

Yondu to Return In Avengers: Infinity War?

25 February 2017 12:47 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

By now, if you're a Marvel fan, you well know that the Guardians of the Galaxy are showing up in Avengers: Infinity War. And you probably also know that Michael Rooker's Yondu becomes an official member of the Guardians in Vol.2 , hitting theaters this summer. So it should stand to reason that Rooker will be part of the massive ensemble cast of Infinity War. Right? Well, we don't have confirmation from Marvel or Disney, but the man himself has offered one big hint that he will return in the next Avengers movie.

Michael Rooker recently shared two photos on Instagram that all but scream that he's returning in Avengers 3. As we know, the movie is currently shooting in Atlanta. Now, we know that Rooker is also in Georgia. And that he has an official Infinity War beanie. We also have proof that he was back in the blue make-up »

Thor: Ragnarok - Fans Mad There May Be Humor? Seriously?

22 February 2017 2:00 PM, PST | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

I just discovered a few interesting tweets on Taika Waititi's (director of upcoming Thor film) twitter (@TaikaWaititi), where some people are b**ching that, god forbid, Thor: Ragnarok may have some humor involved in it. One fan expressed as much Waititi himself.

@TaikaWaititi Taika, how do you feel knowing that there are angry people by Thor Ragnarok adapting a more comic tone?

— Alvaro S. (@alvarof616) February 21, 2017

Surprisingly enough, Waititi saw the tweet, and even went so far as to respond in a hilarious way:

Sounds like they need to laugh. https://t.co/fCB5AwQoDA

Thor: Ragnarok director responds to concerns over the film’s comedic tone

22 February 2017 12:44 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The director of upcoming Marvel sequel Thor: Ragnarok, Taika Waititi, has weighed in on any fan concerns regarding the film’s recently revealed comedic tone.

You can never please everyone, and those that try and are destined to fail. It seems director of the latest Thor movie Taika Waititi understands this when responding on Twitter to the concerns of a fan, who brought up their reservations over the supposedly heavy comedic tone of Thor’s third solo outing.

Waititi responded by saying “Sounds like some people need to laugh”, and didn’t seem to be in the mood to offer reassurances of any kind. Take a look at the exchange here…

Sounds like they need to laugh. https://t.co/fCB5AwQoDA

22 February 2017 10:44 AM, PST | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

In a recent interview with IGN, Hiddleston was kind enough to share what his relationship... Read More »

Tom Hiddleston says Loki would “probably dismiss Doctor Strange” and his magic

22 February 2017 7:45 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Tom Hiddleston recently spoke to IGN as part of the Kong: Skull Island promotional campaign, but naturally he was fielded questions regarding the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Specifically, Hiddleston was asked how Loki would react to Doctor Strange and Hela, to which Hiddleston replied:

“I think he probably dismisses Strange. Yes, his sorcery is very impressive, but Loki’s been doing that for centuries so who cares. Hela is a different beast and full of surprises and actually might have been someone with whom at one time he could’ve gotten along, but the circumstances have changed.”

We may find out just how Loki reacts to Doctor Strange later this year, as both Tom Hiddleston and Benedict Cumberbatch are set to feature in Thor: Ragnarok.

Tom Hiddleston says Thor: Ragnarok features the funniest depiction of Thor we’ve seen

21 February 2017 5:04 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Whenever Taika Waititi is asked about his upcoming entry into the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Thor: Ragnarok, he usually goes on record saying that the blockbuster will also feature his unique flavor of comedy previously seen in critical hits such as What We Do In The Shadows and Hunt for the Wilderpeople.

Falling in line with these statements is a video posted by Fandango where Tom Hiddleston is at a press event promoting the upcoming March blockbuster Kong: Skull Island. He talks about the tone of the Marvel threequel, stating the following:

“At the end of The Dark World, Loki is on the throne. At the beginning of Ragnarok, Thor has a few questions, Loki is endearingly enigmatic about providing answers. Taika Waititi is such a spirited, hilarious individual, and he and Chris Hemsworth became very fast friends. What was great for me to see was to see their friendship kind of blossom, »

Tom Hiddleston Says Thor: Ragnarok Delivers The “Funniest Thor”

21 February 2017 4:45 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Thor: Ragnarok was always going to be highly anticipated, by virtue of it being both a Marvel movie, and an important stepping stone toward Avengers: Infinity War. However, for those that have been paying attention, this particular franchise entry is especially exciting, because it boasts a big-budget collaboration between Chris Hemsworth and Taika Waititi. These two artists have a very specific, very funny sense of humour, which has led to predictions of a unique vein of comedy being introduced into the Thor film series. This has now been confirmed by Tom Hiddleston – also known as Loki – while in conversation with Fandango, promoting his upcoming film, Kong: Skull Island.

“At the end of The Dark World, Loki is on the throne. At the beginning of Ragnarok, Thor has a few questions, Loki is endearingly enigmatic about providing answers. Taika Waititi is such a spirited, hilarious individual, and he and Chris [Hemsworth] became very fast friends. »

Thor Ragnarok: The Director Gives A Tease, But Is Hela Really Ragnarok?

16 February 2017 10:45 AM, PST | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Many hardcore Marvel fans did not like Thor: Darkworld, and while it did have it's moments, it was definitely a subpar film. So when I heard that Thor: Ragnarok may be based on Planet Hulk, I completely flipped out. In the books, sometime around the Skrull War, Hulk was stranded on a gladiator type planet and became more of an intellectual force of nature as opposed to the typical lower intelligence Hulk (with the exception of the Grey Hulk) we have always known. I had to wonder just how they would handle the duo of Thor and Hulk in space. Would this be just another dull Thor flop?

Executive producer Brad Winderbaum thinks not.

"It's going to have some of the wildest, craziest, most amazing action you've ever seen in the McU, the Thor / Hulk relationship is one that is incredible."
