Partial Description Of Avengers: Infinity War Trailer Surfaces

Unless you were one of the fortunate few in attendance at San Diego Comic-Con – or you happened to catch a bootleg recording of said clip before it was yanked offline four months ago – the first trailer for Avengers: Infinity War has been as elusive as they come.

In fact, such is the pent-up demand for Marvel’s 2018 preview that Joe and Anthony Russo recently teased fans via social media on the belief that “some things can’t be rushed: good music and good wine.” And the first-look teaser for Infinity War, it seems.

But as we approach the year’s end, and Thor: Ragnarok maintains its grip on the global box office, it’s surely only a matter of weeks before Marvel officially lifts the lid on Avengers: Infinity War. Indeed, last we reported the studio’s head honcho Kevin Feige hinted that it would drop in and around the same timeframe as Ragnarok,

Kenneth Branagh discusses the pressure on the first Thor movie

Marvel’s Thor: Ragnarok has come in for heaps of praise for its change in direction, taking the Thor franchise fully into the realm of cosmic comedy. However, it’s easy to forget now that, at the time of its release, the first Thor movie also marked a huge tonal shift for the fledgling Marvel Cinematic Universe, introducing cosmic elements after the Earth-based adventures of Iron Man and The Incredible Hulk.

During an interview with Uproxx to promote his latest film Murder on the Orient Express, Thor director Kenneth Branagh spoke about the pressure on the first movie:

“Remember, there were only two pictures in the Marvel Universe. Iron Man, genius, the first one. Hulk hadn’t worked as they’d hoped. And then number three, it was sink or swim before Captain America and then suddenly, oh, it was fine after that. No question that Kevin Feige used to say to me,

The Russos tease mass destruction with Avengers: Infinity War set photo

As we wait with bated breath for our first official glimpse at Avengers: Infinity War, directors Anthony and Joe Russo have taken to Twitter to tease a scene of mass destruction from the hotly-anticipated Marvel blockbuster (or perhaps its as-yet-untitled sequel). The image is somewhat vague, but we’d have to assume this is some kind of battleground where Earth’s Mightiest Heroes have went up against Thanos…

Sebastian Stan talks about the difficulties of filming Avengers: Infinity War

Avengers: Infinity War is being touted as one of the biggest, and most impressive comic book films ever made. We have heard this repeatedly from the cast, crew, and head of Marvel Studios Kevin Feige himself, and while we still don’t have a trailer to chew on, we do have yet another cast member talking about the filming process for Avengers: Infinity War. Recently speaking at the Rhode Island Comic Con, Sebastian Stan discussed the difficulties of filming such a massive, and daunting project (via comicbook.com):

“It’s not something you always deal with. I feel like you always kind of have a script. But I guess, what I would say is, because we’ve done these characters for a bit now, there’s a little bit of a telepathic kind of knowledge between us and the writers. And you kind of can sometimes guess where they’re going to take it,

Marvel’s Kevin Feige found Avengers: Infinity War an “emotional” experience

The Marvel Cinematic Universe celebrates its 10th anniversary in style next year as it brings together the majority of its characters for the superhero epic Avengers: Infinity War, and during an interview with Collider, Marvel Studios chief Kevin Feige has been describing the “emotional” experience of seeing the entire McU coming together.

“It is overwhelming,” said Feige. “I guess what has surprised me is how emotional it all is. Every day, every dailies, every time an actor that has never interacted with a character comes in contact with a character they’ve never interacted with, it’s amazing. It’s both funny, it’s moving and just seeing all those people together in one spot is—you know me, I like to look ahead. I like to focus on, I’m already in Black Panther world, even though we’re talking about Ragnarok. We keep going. There is something very

Marvel Was Worried The McU Would Collapse If Thor Failed

Thor: Ragnarok is a monster hit and currently sitting at 93% on Rotten Tomatoes. Forget the fact that it’s the best God of Thunder movie to date; this could be one of Marvel’s greatest films, period.

To quote our own Matt Donato’s review:

“As Thor tumbles head-over-feet through the infinite cosmos, summons thunder blasts and tries to erase the image of Hulk’s gargantuan – how did Tony Stark put it, zucchini(?) – from his mind, “Cosmic Marvel” continues to evolve as the studio’s most fascinating subgenre. It’s where McU mastermind Kevin Feige allows filmmakers the most freedom, thus far.”

Not a lot of people had high hopes for the latest entry in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (McU), featuring what many described as one of the blandest superheroes on screen, yet director Taika Waititi managed to give us a splendid adventure that had us glued to our seats.

Kevin Feige explains how Matt Damon’s Thor: Ragnarok cameo came about

Minor spoilers for Thor: Ragnarok follow…

A few weeks before the release of Thor: Ragnarok, it was revealed that Matt Damon would be making a brief cameo in the Marvel blockbuster, and as we’ve now seen, Damon takes on the role of an Asgardian actor portraying Loki in a play alongside Luke Hemsworth as Thor and Sam Neill as Odin. Speaking to Collider, Marvel StudiosKevin Feige has discussed the origin of the scene, and how Damon came to be involved.

“There was an idea in the script phase,” said Feige. “I don’t remember if it was our writer, Eric Pearson’s or if it was Taika Waititi’s or if it was our executive producer, Brad Winderbaum to bring the audience up to speed on the fact that everybody thinks Loki is dead. So that when it was revealed that he was Odin, it would make some

Em: Nice…I’d like to talk about Jack Colvin for a sec.

Kj: Sure.

Em: I really loved him as McGee. I thought he was terrific. Did he enjoy playing the role?

Kj: Yeah, he did. But he was frustrated sometimes and he would say to me, “How many times can I say that I’m looking for a hulking, green creature?” So, we tried to really write episodes where he had meaningful stuff to do.

Em: Yeah, that was actually my next question because the character changed a bit. He was a little unlikeable in the first season; like a weasel.

Ragnarok Star Chris Hemsworth Game For Thor/Spidey Team-Up

Look away now, Mark Ruffalo, for Chris Hemsworth has teased Thor’s new sidekick.

While out promoting Thor: Ragnarok, the Aussie actor sat down with Vanity Fair (via ComicBook.com), where he touched on everything from Taika Waititi’s direction to the inevitable transition to Avengers: Infinity War. It’s a film of “infinite proportions,” according to McU architect Kevin Feige, who has been busy pouring ice-cold water over the supposed rivalry between Marvel and DC.

As for Chris Hemsworth, though, he was recently asked if he’d like to see the God of Thunder team up with another Avenger at some point in the future, to which he replied:

I want as much help as I can get. Especially if it’s a Thor movie. I’m like, ‘Give me Hulk; give me Spider-Man;’ give me someone to help me take the weight of responsibility off my shoulders.

How Kevin Smith Helped Save Thor: Ragnarok
If you still haven't seen Thor: Ragnarok there will be some Spoilers below, so read on at your own risk. Marvel's Thor: Ragnarok is well on its way to a second-straight box office win, with an impressive $121 million opening weekend domestically while reaching over $400 million worldwide. The movie was quite the departure from the first two Thor movies, featuring Thor (Chris Hemsworth) sporting a new short-hair look, while reuniting with the Hulk (Mark Ruffalo) and meeting all kinds of new characters on the planet of Sakaar. Many fans and critics alike pointed out how this was easily the funniest Thor movie (and possibly one of the funniest McU movies period), which Chris Hemsworth revealed in a recent interview was in part due to the actor reaching out to comedic filmmaker and lifelong superhero/comic book fan Kevin Smith.

While neither of the Thor movies were critical or commercial failures, they're

Thor: Ragnarok screenwriter and director discuss the film’s ending and mid-credits scene

Major spoilers for Thor: Ragnarok follow. Like, the end of the film major. You have been warned…

When it comes to Marvel trilogies, the third movie usually sees a major shift in the status quo. In Iron Man 3 Tony destroyed his suits (although of course he’d built a few more by the next time we saw him), in Captain America: Civil War the Avengers had fallen apart, and now in Thor: Ragnarok we end with Asgard destroyed, and Thor leading his people to a new home on Midgard.

During an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, screenwriter Eric Pearson has spoken about the decision to destroy Asgard, and how it served Thor’s character:

“I forget exactly how that idea came up, but I remember bringing it up right at the beginning. One of the previous works had Asgard not really being destroyed, or being rebuilt or something. Well,

Hela was almost the villain in Thor: The Dark World

Cate Blanchett has been earning rave reviews for his villainous turn as Hela in Marvel’s latest superhero blockbuster Thor: Ragnarok, but things could have worked out very differently had Marvel went with its original plan of utilising the villain in Thor: The Dark World.

“Hela was almost the villain in Thor 2,” Marvel Studios chief Kevin Feige told Slash Film. “It didn’t happen for various reasons… Thank God it didn’t [happen] because now we have Cate Blanchett and Taika Waititi doing it.”

As it turned out, Marvel opted to use Malekith the Accursed as the main villain for Thor: The Dark World, with Christopher Eccleston portraying the character.

Meanwhile, in other Hela-related news, Marvel’s visual development superviser has shared a rather niece piece of artwork featuring the Goddess of Death; take a look here…

Marvel Cut Beta Ray Bill From Thor: Ragnarok, And Here’s Why

Thor: Ragnarok is undoubtedly one of the most entertaining McU films to date, and a big reason why is because it’s busting with ideas, with the movie acting as a kind of blend of various different comic book storylines. Apart from dealing with the events of Ragnarok, there’s a lot of Planet Hulk in it, too, as well as bits of recent Thor comics from writer Jason Aaron.

With the net cast so wide for comic book inspiration, then, it’s not surprising that the threequel is stuffed full of easter eggs, callbacks and references to a huge variety of Marvel characters, creators and stories. As you’ve surely heard – and probably seen, too – one individual who’s nodded to is Beta Ray Bill – a fan favorite hero from the comics who possesses the rare quality of being worthy enough to wield Mjolnir.

Did You Spot Beta Ray Bill In Thor: Ragnarok?

By tomorrow morning, thousands of you will have seen Thor: Ragnarok, hopefully agreeing with us that it’s an excellent addition to the McU. But, I’m willing to bet that not many of you will have spotted the blink and you’ll miss it cameo from everyone’s favorite horse-alien, Beta Ray Bill.

Tessa Thompson on Marvel’s female stars pitching a team-up movie to Kevin Feige

Last month it was revealed that Thor: Ragnarok star Tessa Thompson has spoken to Marvel Studios chief Kevin Feige about a team-up movie featuring the female heroes of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and now the Valkyrie actress has elaborated on the pitch during an interview with Comic Book Resources.

“I think in that group was Brie Larson, myself, Zoe Saldana — although she ran off to the bathroom, I think, so she came midway through the pitch but she had been in the rev-up to it — Scarlett Johansson. Pom Klementieff and Karen Gillan, who are both in the Guardians movies,” said Thompson. “Yeah, I think it was that group. We were just sort of all in a semicircle talking, and it just came up, because none of us really worked together – well, I suppose Zoe, and Karen, and Pom – and wouldn’t it be nice if we could all work together?
