Thor: Ragnarok Honest Trailer Champions Marvel's Weird Side

With Marvel's Thor: Ragnarok arriving on Blu-ray and DVD today, it's the perfect time to reflect on this superhero blockbuster in a satirical way, with the new Honest Trailer for the third Thor movie. Typically, Honest Trailers tear bad movies to shreds, but they can be just as entertaining by skewering the movies that are universally beloved, like Thor: Ragnarok, which was both a critical (92% Fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes) and commercial ($314.2 million domestic, $853.8 million worldwide) success. If you still haven't seen Thor: Ragnarok, there will be Spoilers below, so read on at your own risk.

The Honest Trailer begins with narrator Jon Bailey (a.k.a. Epic Voice Guy) taking Marvel to task about its elaborate, and lengthy, new Marvel Studios logo that precedes each McU movie. The narrator goes on to state that Thor: Ragnarok represents a bold new direction that Marvel undertook for the Thor films: "not making them suck.

A Look Inside the Insane 7-Hour Process Required to Tattoo Jaimie Alexander for Blindspot

When Blindspot first premiered in 2015, it got our attention right off the bat. Sure, it was dark and more than a little gritty, with those Memento-style memory erasures and fragmented flashbacks. Yet, what really stood out and piqued our interest from the very beginning were those crazy tattoos inked all over leading lady Jaimie Alexander. They were intricate. They were cryptic. They were interesting enough to convince even the most tattoo-adverse to give the art a second look. Turns out, they were also incredibly difficult and time-consuming to create. While actors usually spend quite a bit of time in

Thor Gives the McU Its Best Villain: Journey to Infinity War Part 4

Thor Gives the McU Its Best Villain: Journey to Infinity War Part 4
Our journey to Infinity War continues with 2011's Thor. So far, we've covered the perfect start to the Marvel Cinematic Universe with Iron Man, the studio's green-headed step-child with The Incredible Hulk and Marvel's first sequel, which is admittedly uneven, with Iron Man 2. Now, we have the introduction of Chris Hemsworth as the God of Thunder as we take our first steps into the cosmic side of the Marvel universe. This may not be a great movie in its own right, but it's an important one for the McU.

I'll be the first to admit, I don't have a lot of personal love for this movie. The side of the Marvel universe that Thor explores is not something I was ever particularly interested in, but as a fan of comics my whole life, knowing that they were building to The Avengers, I was in and saw Thor in theaters opening weekend.

Blindspot's Jaimie Alexander's "Vanicure" Will Keep You Fresh Down There

Blindspot's Jaimie Alexander's
Ladies, what have you done for your "V" lately? For too long, the most intimate part of our bodies has received the same treatment as everything else (with the exception of our faces)—soap, water, a little body oil perhaps. But, it might not be enough. Think about it: When you take into account its pH changes, delicate tissue, your hair removal regimen and sex life, the vagina has special needs. Unfortunately, there still isn't enough attention being paid to this region of a woman's body, even within the female-dominated beauty industry. Created by beauty industry vet Avonda Urben and loved by Blindspot star Jaimie Alexander, the Denmark-based brand, The Perfect V, addresses...

Kurt Weller did what?!

In the final moments of Friday's fall finale of Blindspot, titled "City Folks Under Wraps," Weller (Sullivan Stapleton) dropped a shocking bombshell in regards to the whereabouts of Jane’s (Jaimie Alexander) daughter, Avery, whom he secretly met in Berlin.

Up until this point, Jane had been hesitant to find Avery, but eventually came around on the idea, only to learn from her husband that her daughter wasn’t alive anymore. Why?

'Blindspot' Sneak Peek: Patterson Starts to Lose It Working 24/7 to Take Down Hirst (Exclusive)

'Blindspot' Sneak Peek: Patterson Starts to Lose It Working 24/7 to Take Down Hirst (Exclusive)
The clock is ticking for the Blindspot team's secret quest to take down shady FBI Director Eleanor Hirst.

In Et's exclusive sneak peek from Friday's episode, titled "Fix My Present Havoc," the gang sets up shop, making Jane (Jaimie Alexander) and Weller's (Sullivan Stapleton) apartment a second home base outside the official FBI walls as they work day and night to investigate Hirst (Mary Stuart Masterson), who they've just learned is working with the enemy.

The Blindspot crew's around-the-clock investigation, however, is clearly taking a toll on their mental state, as Jane and Weller observe when it comes to Patterson (Ashley Johnson). "Morse code? More like horse code. So dumb!" Patterson snickers on an early Saturday morning, slightly delusional from lack of sleep.

But Jane and Weller receive a surprise holiday present for Weller's young daughter, Bethany, from dear Roman (Luke Mitchell), the puppetmaster behind their current chaos. "Merry Christmas, Bethany. Love, Uncle

Don’t Expect To See McU Movie Heroes In Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Ever

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. was launched in 2013 with much fanfare as a new and vital link in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. We were told that the events within would impact upon the films (and vice versa), and most fans anticipated at minimum a couple of cameos from some of the Avengers.

What we actually got, though, were several narrative arcs with little to no connection with the McU. In the end, the connections were limited to the character of Agent Coulson, very brief appearances from Samuel L. Jackson, Jamie Alexander and Cobie Smulders, the consequences of the plots of the Captain America movies and the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. locating Loki’s staff in time for the opening of Age of Ultron.

Despite that, the show has been muddling along in its own McU cul-de-sac, having picked up a devoted fanbase that’s seen it recently hit its 100th episode. This is a pretty big milestone,

Warning: This post contains spoilers from Friday’s episode of Blindspot.

Jane Doe has been called a lot of names during Blindspot‘s 48-episode run: Alice Kruger. Remi. Mrs. Kurt Weller.
