After launching the first Thor: Ragnarok trailer last month, which shattered Marvel's trailer view record, this Marvel sequel is shaping up to be one of the fall's most hotly-anticipated movies. While filming wrapped months ago, it seems that at least some of the cast members are getting back together for reshoots, as hinted by star Mark Ruffalo. The actor recently took to social media, with a photo of the mask he has to wear for his motion capture work, teasing Thor: Ragnarok reshoots. Here's what he had to say below on social media.
"Hello old friend. The incredible green behemoth comes round again. Prepare thee for #ragnorok."
Even though it's spelled wrong, the actor's brief Instagram mention of "ragnorok" indicates that he's getting suited up to play Hulk again in Thor: Ragnarok, and not Avengers: Infinity War, which is still in production. Both Mark Ruffalo and Chris Hemsworth were recently »
Fans have certainly responded to the first Thor: Ragnarok trailer, which set a new Disney record with 136 million views in the first 24 hours. Chris Hemsworth and Tom Hiddleston are back as the Asgardian brothers Thor and Loki, but this new adventure introduces a number of new characters, including Jeff Goldblum as The Grandmaster. A month before the trailer debuted, fans got their first look at The Grandmaster, who has a much different look in the movie than he does in the comics, where his skin is entirely blue. Director Taika Waititi revealed that there is a perfectly good explanation for this, which is also quite hilarious.
Earlier this week, a number of journalists were invited to the Marvel facility in Burbank for a special event, and Thor: Ragnarok director Taika Waititi was on hand to discuss his Marvel Phase Three adventure, which arrives in theaters November 3. IGN spoke with Taika Waititi during the event, »
Within the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the two Thor films have been among the most forgettable. They’re not bad, but they lack personality and the fun of the rest of the McU. Well, as you’ll see with this Teaser Trailer that debuted yesterday, Thor: Ragnarok certainly seeks to change all of that. As will become apparent, there’s a lighter tone in effect, a larger scale, and a vibe that isn’t at odds with the rest of the McU. It’s very different, almost entirely in good ways. The Teaser Trailer will probably tickle your fancy, but before we get to that, some mild analysis is coming your way! This sequel is the third Thor film and one that works as a sequel not just to Thor: The Dark World, but also to Avengers: Age of Ultron and Captain America: Civil War as well. Having left Earth, Thor »

Last week, a rumor surfaced that the first Thor: Ragnarok trailer will debut during this week's episode of ABC's Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., which airs Tuesday, April 11. As it turns out, the trailer debuted today, a full day earlier, giving fans their first look at Thor (Chris Hemsworth) doing battle with his fellow Avenger Hulk (Mark Ruffalo), along with new glimpses of the villainous Hela (Cate Blanchett) and Loki (Tom Hiddleston) along with new characters Valkyrie (Tessa Thompson), Skurge (Karl Urban) and The Grandmaster (Jeff Goldblum). We have broken down this trailer to give you over 75 trailer photos that give us a closer look at all of these characters, new and old.
Long before the Thor 3 synopsis was unveiled in January, there had been rumors that this sequel will be partially based on the iconic Planet Hulk comics. When we last saw Hulk, he had stolen a Quinjet at »
Disney is pulling out all the stops this morning, promoting the upcoming Marvel release Thor: Ragnarok. First, we saw the epic trailer, which puts Thor and Hulk in the gladiator ring. Now, we have the official one-sheet from the movie, which has Chris Hemsworth getting ready for this battle, as he prepares to don his new weaponized helmet.
In Marvel Studios' Thor: Ragnarok, Thor is imprisoned on the other side of the universe without his mighty hammer and finds himself in a race against time to get back to Asgard to stop Ragnarok, the destruction of his homeworld and the end of Asgardian civilization, at the hands of an all-powerful new threat, the ruthless Hela. But first he must survive a deadly gladiatorial contest that pits him against his former ally and fellow Avenger, the Incredible Hulk!

In Marvel Studios’ Thor: Ragnarok, Thor is imprisoned on the other side of the universe without his mighty hammer and finds himself in a race against time to get back to Asgard to stop Ragnarok—the destruction of his homeworld and the end of Asgardian civilization—at the hands of an all-powerful new threat, the ruthless Hela. But first he must survive a deadly gladiatorial contest that pits him against his former ally and fellow Avenger—the Incredible Hulk!
Thor: Ragnarok is directed by Taika Waititi and returns Chris Hemsworth starring as Thor and Tom Hiddleston reprising his role as Loki. They are joined by Cate Blanchett, Idris Elba, Jeff Goldblum, Tessa Thompson and Karl Urban, with Mark Ruffalo and Anthony Hopkins. »

In a movie full of them, Dafne Keen’s Laura/X-23 is definitely a major highlight of Logan. The young actress is completely silent (aside from her primal battle cries) for over half the film, but says all she needs to with nothing more than a glance or a rare smile. For this reason alone, many fans look forward to Keen reprising the role at some point down the road, although the manner of Laura’s return is still up in the air.
One man that seems fairly certain about which story an X-23 spinoff should follow though is the character’s creator, Craig Kyle. During an interview with THR, the writer expressed his gratitude towards director James Mangold and his team for bringing the ferocious young mutant to the big screen in such a faithful manner, and also laid out his ideal scenario for any potential spinoff:

While Logan was a pitch perfect sendoff for both Hugh Jackman and Patrick Stewart, there is little doubt that there is also some real franchise potential for the third mutant of the trinity of broken heroes. That’s right, Logan also served as a highlight for Laura Kinney (a.k.a. X-23), a young girl who was a product of inhumane genetic tampering.
She may have been just a little girl, but she was just as broken as Logan and Charles, and given that the ending of the film saw her heading to Eden with the rest of her mutant friends (The New Mutants?), giving the filmmakers room to take advantage of the character later on down the line.
But where could they take the character? Speaking with THR, X-23 creator Craig Kyle gave his pitch as to what he »

Earlier today, Entertainment Weekly unveiled the cover of their latest print edition which featured our first look at Thor (Chris Hemsworth), Hela (Cate Blanchett) and Valkyrie (Tessa Thompson) from Thor: Ragnarok, which hits theaters November 3. That was just the beginning, though, with EW now unveiling nine more photos, which give us our first look at The Grandmaster (Jeff Goldblum) and Loki (Tom Hiddleston), along with the new short-haired Thor in his gladiator armor, complete with war paint and shield. We also get some behind the scenes shots with director Taika Waititi interacting with cast members Chris Hemsworth and Tessa Thompson on the set.
These photos from Entertainment Weekly unfortunately aren't accompanied by any further details about the story, but the gladiator armor we see Thor wearing is likely what he'll use to take on his fellow Avenger, Hulk (Mark Ruffalo). It has been confirmed that Thor will visit the planet Sakaar, »
While fans impatiently await the trailer for Marvel's Thor: Ragnarok, this week's print edition of Entertainment Weekly gives fans their first look at Thor (Chris Hemsworth) with his new look, along with Hela (Cate Blanchett) and Valkyrie (Tessa Thompson). We also have new details from Chris Hemsworth, producer and Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige and director Taika Waititi, who offer new insight into the story. What most Thor fans will notice right away in the photo, is that Thor's flowing blond locks have been shaved off.
Marvel fans got their first glimpse at this Asgardian warrior in 2011's Thor, before he returned to team up with Earth's Mightiest Heroes in the 2012 blockbuster The Avengers. He returned in 2013's Thor: The Dark World and 2015's Avengers: Age of Ultron, and in all four of those movies, Thor always had the long blonde hair most had come to expect from this iconic character. »

It's only March, but Logan has already delivered what will likely be the breakout role of the year. In Logan, Dafne Keen's Laura is both tragic and comic; brutal and heartwarming — and just maybe, the successor to Hugh Jackman's Wolverine in the X-Men movie universe.
Craig Kyle created the character in 2003 for the animated series X-Men: Evolution, after a Kids WB executive asked if he could make Wolverine a kid (the show featured younger versions of many of the X-Men). The answer was no. But it got Kyle thinking, and he pitched the idea of a young, female »

The character was created by writer Craig Kyle for the "X-Men: Evolution" (2003) TV series, as the 'clone' daughter of 'Wolverine'. with a regenerative healing factor, enhanced senses, speed and reflexes.
She also has retractable adamantium-coated bone claws in her hands and feet.
Cloned from a damaged copy of Wolverine's genome, X-23 was created to be the perfect killing machine. For years, she proved herself a capable assassin working for an organization called the Facility.
"Logan" Synopsis (spoilers):
In the film, Laura is half Mexican, bred by a Spanish woman with Logan's DNA at 'Transigen'. 'Gabriela', a nurse at Transigen, helps Laura and the other bred, mutant children escape the facility after they discover the scientists planned to kill the children after they perfected their cloning procedure into 'X-24', »

In the film, set in a near, somewhat dystopian future, a weary Logan is caring for an ailing Charles Xavier across the border in Mexico when he comes across a mysterious young mutant pursued by dark forces. While “Logan” isn’t an overtly political film, Jackman and Stewart noted some stark parallels with today’s Trump-inspired headlines.
“Before the whole debate about the wall, the border scenes were there in the film,” Jackman said, adding that the writers caught something of the Zeitgeist.
Stewart added: “We are affected by the changing times. You present your part as a person influenced by the times. We did not set out to make a political movie, yet there are echoes in the film that exist today – that is serendipity. »

The film will bring two of the mightiest Avengers together, Chris Hemsworth's Thor and Mark Ruffalo's Hulk, with the pair said to be going on a "cosmic road trip" throughout the film.

Now we officially know what Hulk is doing in Thor: Ragnarok. And it's exactly what many expected. We won't be getting a full-on Planet Hulk movie, but this third entry in the Thor franchise is going to take some of those best elements and deliver an epic tale that far overshadows what has come before in terms of this particular set of standalone adventures.
Today, Disney released their 2017 preview, and buried in all the photos and synopses was a first look at Thor: Ragnarok. The movie wrapped this summer, and is currently in post-production. It arrives after Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 and Spider-Man: Homecoming in the first half of the year, so we can expect that the first trailer for Thor 3 won't arrive until sometime after spring as we head into May. Instead, today we get a behind-the-scenes image and a story confirmation.
