Thor: Ragnarok rumour suggests a major death

22 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Warning. Potential spoilers for Thor: Ragnarok follow…

As Marvel enters its third Phase, there’s been a lot of talk that the new slate of movies will see several big name characters from the McU killed off.

Previous reports have suggested that “multiple death scenes” have been filmed for Captain America: Civil War, and now Latino-Review is claiming that Thor: Ragnarok will also see us waving goodbye to one of the God of Thunder’s main supporting characters.

The site is claiming that Hela (thought to be portrayed by Cate Blanchett) will attack Asgard, murdering Idris Elba’s Heimdall in the process. However, that won’t be the last we see of the character, as “the final showdown with Hela will feature an army of the dead commanded by the villainess doing battle with good Valkyries from Valhalla and the souls of the righteous fallen, including Heimdall.”

As always with Latino-Review, »

Taika Waititi confirms Cate Blanchett for Thor: Ragnarok

2 February 2016 11:30 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Back in December it was reported that Cate Blanchett was wanted for a role in the upcoming Marvel sequel Thor: Ragnarok, with Mark Ruffalo subsequently supporting the rumour. And now director Taika Waititi has confirmed that the two-time Oscar winner is joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

“Yes,” Waititi tells Wired when asked if the actress is set to appear in the film. “Look, it’s so early I’m not sure exactly what the extent of it is, but it’s looking good, which would make me very happy.”

Asked about the rumour that Blanchett will play Hela, Waititi responded that: “Yeah, the rumor … Here’s the thing. I can’t say anything. I’ve probably said way too much.”

A more intelligent Hulk teased for Thor: Ragnarok

1 February 2016 3:17 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It seems that everyone’s favorite green weapon of mass destruction might be going to some character changes starting with the upcoming 2017 McU entry Thor: Ragnarok.

Speaking on the subject with Hitflix, director Taika Waititi says  “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]. So I think a lot of those decisions are larger group decisions, rather than anything to do with just me or the writer. They have a lot of stuff that they have to consider. But I do think that’s the best way to track it. I think we all want that. I think we all want to see that development and the evolution of that character. I also think you can do it in a fun way.”

Expect A Smarter Hulk In "Thor: Ragnarok"

31 January 2016 10:19 PM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Some more comments from Taika Waititi at the Sundance Film Festival are in with the filmmaker discussing one aspect of the "Thor: Ragnarok" production that hasn't been talked about before now - namely how smart and verbose he intends to make the green meanie in the film.

Waititi tells Hitfix that the topic is in discussions right now and that it also ties in with the "Avengers: Infinity War" saga with the director implying Marvel wants to go that route in those films:

"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. »

Taika Waititi wants to inject his style of humour into Thor: Ragnarok

29 January 2016 11:00 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Back in October, it was announced that What We Do in the Shadows director Taika Waititi is set bring his talents to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, helming the God of Thunder’s third solo outing, Thor: Ragnarok.

Speaking to Collider at Sundance where he’s promoting his new film Hunt for the Wilderpeople, the New Zealand filmmaker has been speaking about what he hopes to bring to the movie, stating that he wants to inject his own brand of humour.

“I love that one moment in Avengers when Hulk grabs Loki and rag dolls him. It lends itself to great humor, do you read those comic books? They’re wacky. They’re crazy. I think that‘s exactly what they need, to keep changing it up. They’ve got their dark films, some are more serious, and I think it’s great that they’re mixing it up. I really »

Rumours on The Hulk’s involvement in Thor: Ragnarok

25 January 2016 10:21 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Geek.com has been steadily dropping Marvel rumours over the past few days, reporting on the villain for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 and new team members, as well as Odin’s involvement in Thor: Ragnarok, and Cate Blanchett’s potential role.

Now the site has another rather more detailed rumour on Ragnarok and the Hulk’s involvement, suggesting that the 2017 threequel will be providing a Planet Hulk adaptation of sorts.

So, according to their latest report, Loki and Hela will banish Thor from Asgard, with the God of Thunder then ending up on a gladiatorial planet, where he runs through all of his opponents before coming up against the champion… who is none other than The Incredible Hulk.

The report goes on to claim that Jade Giant has remained in Hulk form since the end of Avengers: Age of Ultron, although the Bruce Banner persona slips through after recognising Thor, »

'Thor: Ragnarok' Funnier Than 'Thor: The Dark World'?

24 January 2016 10:08 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Fans have long been used to expecting the unexpected when it comes to the Marvel movies, especially when it comes to the studio's choice of directors. No one expected the studio to hire Taika Waititi (What We Do in the Shadows) to direct Thor: Ragnarok, but the move made more sense when producer and Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige revealed he wanted the director to inject more humor into Thor: Ragnarok. The Wrap caught up with the filmmaker at the Sundance Film Festival, where he briefly discussed his approach to the humor.

"Just take what they've done before. I'm just going to take the second Thor film and just add some jokes to that."

Taika Waititi signed on to direct back in October, and we also reported that Mark Ruffalo is coming back as Hulk. Both Thor and Hulk are said to go on a "cosmic road trip" in this superhero sequel, »

Rumours on Cate Blanchett’s villain role in Thor: Ragnarok

22 January 2016 10:45 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The folks at Geek.com have been dropping a few Marvel rumours lately concerning a potential villain for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 [see here] and Odin’s involvement in Thor: Ragnarok [see here], and now the site is back with another Ragnarok rumour, this time concerning Cate Blanchett’s role.

So, according to the site, Blanchett – who is yet to be officially confirmed as appearing, but definitely in the running according to Mark Ruffalo – will play the character of Hela, the ruler of Hel.

In Thor: Ragnarok, Hela and Loki will have set their plan well in motion by the time Thor gets wise to what’s going on. Hela ends up creating the incident to Thor’s journey in the film. According to our sources, when Thor confronts Hela, things do not go well. Not only does she banish Thor from Asgard, but she destroys Mjolnir!

Mark Ruffalo says Thor: Ragnarok is a road movie

21 January 2016 8:00 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Hulk may not have a solo movie in Phase Three, but Mark Ruffalo is set to reprise the role of the Jade Giant alongside Chris Hemsworth’s God of Thunder in Thor: Ragnarok, and the actor has been speaking to Empire about the 2017 release, describing it as a road movie across the universe.

“There’s a little bit of Midnight Run, with Charles Grodin and Robert De Niro,” states Ruffalo. “I feel like that’s kind of where we’re heading with this relationship between Thor and Banner. It is a universal road movie – that’s where we’re heading. It’s not where you’d think it will be, so it’s not your classic road movie but it has that structure, I think.”

Ruffalo has previously called the film “a buddy picture with Thor and Bruce Banner”, and he went on to share a few thoughts on »

Rumours on Odin’s involvement in Thor: Ragnarok

20 January 2016 1:16 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The ending of Thor: The Dark World saw Loki (Tom Hiddleston) posing as Odin on the throne of Asgard, leaving the fate of Anthony Hopkin’s Allfather uncertain.

As yet, there’s been no word as to whether Hopkins will be back for a third outing in 2017’s Thor: Ragnarok, but Geek.com is claiming that Odin will return for the God of Thunder’s third solo outing, and they also claim to have details as to his role.

According to the site, Odin has fled Asgard, and is now wandering around Midgard “as one of those crazy-looking ‘the end is nigh’ street-corner hobos, warning of the impending apocalypse.” At some point, Thor will encounter his father on Earth.

Ever since the Aquaman movie was first announced back in October 2014, Jason Momoa has been attached to play the title character.

Inside the Golden Globes 2016 After-Parties

11 January 2016 7:21 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

This year’s infamous Golden Globe after-parties were colored by two unfortunate events. First, changes to the drop-off system required all partygoers (who didn’t come directly from the show) to take shuttles to the Beverly Hilton out of Century City. Many guests and celebrities were forced to endure hour-long waits on the backed-up lines, and other, less determined, revelers abandoned course completely.

On a far graver note, the celebratory night took a much different turn when guests learned of the passing of legendary musician David Bowie. At around 11 p.m., partygoers fled frantically outside to check their phones for news, entertainment greats raised their glasses in commemorative toasts and DJs at shindigs from HBO to Weinstein honored the British legend by playing mashups of his tunes.

The Variety staff was on hand to share how it all went down.

Jaimie Alexander promises not to be a bridezilla. The Blindspot actress, 31, talked about her upcoming nuptials to Peter Facinelli at the Golden Globes, revealing that they are still in the early planning stage - though they do have a few ideas. "We're just moving so because both of us are so busy," Alexander told People, adding that her action-packed NBC show has inspired a possible theme for the wedding. "But we're toying with the idea of doing something kind of stunt-oriented to just mix it up and doing something kind of wild and fun." And if that doesn't sound like your typical wedding, »
