You’ve got to love the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, that one magical event every year where the Kool-Aid Guy and Hello Kitty can put their politics aside — they have opposing views about Palestine — and just be thankful they’re both still relevant.

During an interview with Cinema Blend to promote his upcoming film In the Heart of the Sea, Chris Hemsworth spoke briefly about his next outing as the God of Thunder in Thor: Ragnarok, stating that he’d like to see an injection of Guardians of the Galaxy-esque humour into the threequel.
“I think [Thor 3] needs to be injected with that sort of smart wit and unexpected kind of humor, kind of what James Gunn came in and did with Guardians of the Galaxy. It was like off center and unpredictable, and I think we can definitely use a dose of that, you know? I feel we had less of the sort of the naivety or fun or humor that the first [Thor] might have had. I wish we had more of that in the second [movie] … We’ve done regal. We’ve done Shakespeare, and we’ve shown that. I think now it’s time to go, »

The latest hit show in the Us features a heavily inked heroine. And it’s far from a first. Here’s how skin ink went from exotic to mainstream on our favourite shows, from The X-Files to Sons of Anarchy
In an eerily evacuated Times Square, a shivering woman unfolds herself from a duffel bag, her naked body completely covered in swirling tattoos. As attention-grabbing opening sequences go, Blindspot gets top marks for effort. A heavy marketing push – featuring Thor valkyrie Jaimie Alexander in the buff but for her elaborate ink – has also helped make it the most successful drama of the new TV season. In the Us, 10m viewers tuned into the opening episode in September, and the numbers are holding up as it launches in the UK this week.

Spoiler warning: Do not read on unless you’ve seen episode 110 of NBC’s “Blindspot,” titled “Evil Handmade Instrument.”
The midseason finale of NBC’s “Blindspot” gave viewers one twist after another: In the show’s last ten minutes, Jane (Jaimie Alexander) paid Weller (Sullivan Stapleton) an impromptu visit to plant a long overdue kiss on the brooding FBI agent, before she was kidnapped by CIA deputy director Tom Carter (Michael Gaston) and waterboarded during a harrowing interrogation. During her ordeal, Jane flashed back to a memory in which she overheard Carter mentioning the mysterious “Orion,” but before the two could hash things out, Carter was shot by the man with the tree tattoo revealed to be Jane’s former fiancee, Oscar (Francois Arnaud), who has been following her since at least episode six. But the most shocking revelation of all came when Oscar showed Jane a video of herself, »

The conspiracy continues to unravel in NBC’s “Blindspot” which racked up the body count last week after Lou Diamond Phillips’ Saul Guerrero was murdered by Michael Gaston’s scheming CIA boss Carter, and Patterson’s adorkable ex-boyfriend David (Joe Dinicol) had his throat slit by an unknown assailant.
In the Nov. 23 midseason finale, titled “Evil Handmade Instrument,” the team goes after a group of sleeper spies that have just been activated and race to stop a slew of assassinations. Variety has an exclusive sneak peek from the episode, which sees Carter and Mayfair (Marianne Jean-Baptiste) face off over Guerrero’s murder and the continuing fallout from Daylight.
“Blindspot” airs Mondays at 10 p.m. on NBC.

Almost everyone acts like someone they are not in this episode of Blindspot. Jane and Weller are posing as international assassins. The hacker criminal they're hunting is attempting to channel Vince Vaughn. Patterson is trying not to be a lovesick puppy. Zapata isn't quite sure who she is anymore. But in the end, everyone's true nature is exposed.As usual, Patterson (Ashley Johnson) decodes a tattoo with uncanny timing, leading the FBI to a pair of assassins in search of a list of witnesses connected to a mob boss. Weller (Sullivan Stapleton) and Jane (Jaimie Alexander) take the pair out and use their identities to attend a black-tie gala where they hope to buy the witness list. Instead, they're whisked away to a douchey hacker's beach house where they gradually take down his henchmen and a competing buyer. The hacker, who has renamed himself Rich Dotcom, is eerily (annoyingly) like »

According to reports, Marvel Studios will include the 'Hulk' in director Taika Waititi's developing feature "Thor: Ragnarok", as well as a major female character that has figured prominently throughout Marvel Comics:
...who rules over 'Niffleheim', the 'Asgardian' realm of the afterlife.
"...when 'Thor' was missing in action, presumed dead, 'Tony Stark' took one of his hairs, which he had retained from the first meeting of the 'Avengers' and cloned the 'Asgardian' DNA with Stark technology. This resulted in the creation of a new, cyborg Thor. »

Blindspot has already been renewed for a second season on NBC, but there are rumors of troubles on set. The new rumors come from Page Six – which means to take them with a grain of salt.
The Page Six report stated that Jaimie Alexander has been complaining about the fake tattoos covering her body for the series. She claims that they are making her sick because they are "poisonous." The report also claims that four tattoo artists and a hairdresser were fired from the production last week.Read More… »
We know that The Hulk will be teaming up with The God of Thunder for Thor: Ragnarok, but a new rumour is suggesting that Marvel could be looking to introduce its first female villain.
“I have heard that Marvel is also planning on bringing their first major female villain into their cinematic universe,” gossip site of Elaine Lui is claiming. “I don’t know who the character is for sure, but there are a couple likely candidates from Asgard: Amora the Enchantress, a sorceress; or Hela, Queen of the Dead.”
Now the site does sound like its speculating with the options of Amora and Hela rather than basing that on information she’s heard, but they would be the likliest of candidates. Amora is one of Thor’s oldest foes and Hela would fit in with the Ragnarok storyline that was set up in Avengers: Age of Ultron.

So far we've learned that "Thor: Ragnarok," the upcoming third film in the Marvel superhero series, will see four characters whisked away to a distant and previously unseen planet.
We know Chris Hesmworth (Thor), Jaimie Alexander (Lady Sif), Tom Hiddleston (Loki) and The Hulk (Mark Ruffalo) are all in it. Now comes word that not just one but two major Marvel female characters are set to appear.
Along with Valkyrie being introduced, which was first reported earlier this year, Lainey Gossip says there will also be a major female supervillain who originates from the Marvel Comics:
“[There are] two high-profile female roles being cast in Ragnarok, because I have heard that Marvel is also planning on bringing their first major female villain into their cinematic universe."
These comments have since gotten people talking, suggesting that the likes of either Hela - Queen of the Dead or Amora the Enchantress will serve as the villainess. »

Marvel Studios has major plans for Thor: Ragnarok. Not only will the threequel herald the return of Mark Ruffalo’s Bruce Banner to the fray after he slipped off the radar shortly after Avengers: Age of Ultron, but there’s also reports that the early script is shaping up to be Marvel’s darkest to date.
Exciting times for Marvelites, then, but perhaps not so much for Chris Hemsworth’s God of Thunder, after a report by Lainey Gossip has seemingly revealed the main villain that he’ll be tackling in the 2017 sequel. Spoilers abound!

Though her inclusion has been hinted all throughout the pre-production process, it is Valkyrie that has once again surfaced as the number one contender to star alongside Thor in a couple of years’ time. But beyond that, the outlet notes that Marvel is casting the net in search of another »

Apart from giving focus to Chris Hesmworth’s Thunder God in his third solo outing, Thor: Ragnarok is expected to flesh out Mark Ruffalo’s Incredible Hulk, Tom Hiddleston’s God of Mischief Loki, as well as Jaimie Alexander’s Lady Sif, among other Asgardians. And while it’s been said that the superheroine known as Valkyrie (and/or her Valkyrior team) will be introduced, now comes word that the 2017 threequel will also establish a "major" female supervillain from the Marvel Comics. “If Valkyrie is really coming to the big screen, that will make two high-profile female roles being cast in Ragnarok, because I have heard that Marvel is also planning on bringing their first major female villain into their cinematic universe,” reports Lainey Gossip, whose scoops have been low-key in sync with Birth.Movies.Death’s.

The evening after it earned an early Season 2 renewal, “Blindspot” delivered one of its most socially conscious episodes of the season. First, fans learned that the mysterious case called Daylight that Mayfair (Marianne Jean-Baptiste) has been so cagey about centers on one of American citizens’ biggest fears: the threat of national security and exposure. Similarly, the case of the week had the team covering the hot-button issue of police brutality and why officers’ body cameras may end up doing more harm than expected. Creator Martin Gero talks to Variety about these issues and what’s in store for the many new episodes of the show to come.
