Marvel has a big year planned for 2017, both behind the scenes and in theaters. Right now, Avengers: Infinity War is shooting in Atlanta back-to-back with Black Panther. And they have Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, Spider-Man: Homecoming and Thor: Ragnarok coming to a multiplex near you in the months ahead. So we're going to be bombarded with various items from all five movies in what is being called a superhero tsunami. Today, we get a new logo for Infinity War.
This logo was spotted on the back of a crew chair on set in Atalanta as shooting continues, and shared on Reddit. The cast for the movie is quite epic and features McU stars such as Josh Brolin (Thanos), Chris Hemsworth (Thor), Sebastian Stan (Bucky/Winter Soldier), Scarlett Johansson (Natasha Romanoff/Black Widow), Jeremy Renner (Clint Barton/Hawkeye), Chris Evans (Captain America/Steve Rogers), Elizabeth Olsen (Wanda Maximoff/Scarlet »
Mr. Tom Hiddleston, you have come a very long way. Long before becoming a Hollywood A-lister or earning the role of Loki in the Thor franchise, the actor was just a kid exploring the acting bug in school. While appearing on The Graham Norton Show, Tom looked back at one of his first roles with a man many will also recognize. Anyone heard of Eddie Redmayne? "He was a great talent even then," Tom revealed this week. "He was a huge star and we were in a school production of A Passage to India by E.M. Forster." Eddie was playing the female lead as his character took an expedition to a cultural landmark by elephant. As for Tom's role, it was a bit more »
Many hardcore Marvel fans did not like Thor: Darkworld, and while it did have it's moments, it was definitely a subpar film. So when I heard that Thor: Ragnarok may be based on Planet Hulk, I completely flipped out. In the books, sometime around the Skrull War, Hulk was stranded on a gladiator type planet and became more of an intellectual force of nature as opposed to the typical lower intelligence Hulk (with the exception of the Grey Hulk) we have always known. I had to wonder just how they would handle the duo of Thor and Hulk in space. Would this be just another dull Thor flop?
Executive producer Brad Winderbaum thinks not.
"It's going to have some of the wildest, craziest, most amazing action you've ever seen in the McU, the Thor / Hulk relationship is one that is incredible."

On the Phase Three bonus featurette for the Doctor Strange Blu-ray, Thor: Ragnarok director Taika Waititi (Hunt for the Wilderpeople) has discussed what he hopes to bring to the table for his addition to the Marvel Cinematic Universe in terms of the film’s tone.
Via Comicbook, Waititi states “I want to take people on an adventure that keeps people laughing along the way, but also has the spectacle,” which is in line with what to expect from the director based on his previous work.
Producer Brad Winderbaum also offered a comment, saying: “It’s going to have some of the wildest, craziest, most amazing action you’ve ever seen in the McU.”

We’ve all had bad housemates, but spare a thought for poor Darryl.

Even after the fallout from Captain America: Civil War, many would still consider Steve Rogers to be the moral anchor of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, even if his immediate future donning the stars and stripes is largely up for question – then again, we fully expect Joe and Anthony Russo to have Chris Evans’ star-spangled hero back in business in time for Thanos and Avengers: Infinity War.
Other members of the Avengers are more difficult to pin down, morally speaking. But when it comes to Chadwick Boseman’s Black Panther, Ryan Coogler believes that, because of his duty as a soldier, coupled with his ties to politics, the character of T’Challa exists in the grey area between war and, essentially, pacifism. First spotted by ComicBook.com, Coogler touched base on Boseman’s conflicted lead during »

In the sneak peek below you'll get to see what happens when Thor attempts to use Asgardian gold coins to pay for rent. Let's just say Darryl isn't having it but he's no match for the whit and brawn of the mighty Thor.
There's more Team Thor 2 that takes place before and after this scene including the servant and a classroom full of kids that you won't want to miss.

Capping off a busy day for the Marvel camp, a series of behind-the-scenes pictures for Thor: Ragnarok have now surfaced online showcasing all-new aliens, otherworldly sets, and Chris Hemsworth leaping into action as the eponymous Norse God.
Directed by Taika Waititi (Hunt For the Wilderpeople), Ragnarok is the third and final Marvel movie on course to release in 2017 – Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 and Spider-Man: Homecoming being the first two – and it’ll herald the hotly-anticipated reunion of Thor and Mark Ruffalo’s Hulk. But if Joss Whedon’s Avengers toyed with the idea of pitting the allies against one another all those years ago, by tapping into Greg Pak’s beloved Planet Hulk comic book, Thor: Ragnarok will take that bubbling rivalry and thrusting it smack bang in the middle of Sakaar’s gladiatorial arena. You’ll even get an early glimpse of that »

Earlier today, Marvel released Doctor Strange on Digital HD, which includes a sneak peek at the other movies coming up in the Marvel Phase 3 lineup. Several images have surfaced from this preview, giving fans new glimpses at both of the studio's 2017 entries into the McU, Guardians of the Galaxy 2 (May 5, 2017) and Thor: Ragnarok (November 3, 2017). These photos set up some interesting possibilities for the plot of Thor: Ragnarok, while hinting at a long-awaited romance in Guardians of the Galaxy 2.
Last month, we got the first official Thor: Ragnarok photo, along with the first synopsis, which confirmed a number of story details that had been swirling around the movie. These latest photos, courtesy of McU Exchange, tease a new species of aliens that will be featured in the sequel, along with a hint that the long-rumored villain Surtur may finally surface in the McU. While we don't know anything about the aliens, »

The Asgardian Avenger, played by an ab-bearing Chris Hemsworth, still doesn’t have a job, which puts a strain on the roommate relationship when bills come a knockin’ — and Asgardian tender doesn’t count, even if each coin is worth “a gazillion human dollars,” as Thor claims. Darryl suggests the hero, sitting on a bike in his robe and swim trunks, »

Mark Ruffalo's Hulk might not be getting a solo movie anytime soon, but newly released concept art from November's Thor: Ragnarok suggests that it might just be the movie version of the comic book "Planet Hulk" storyline that fans have been wishing for, after all.
Images available on the Doctor Strange home release — first pointed out online by the Spoiler Free Movie Sleuth site — show Ragnarok concept art featuring Cate Blanchett's Hela and, more interestingly, Chris Hemsworth's Thor having to deal with an axe-wielding Hulk in front of a massive crowd:

While the movie itself was thrilling (and came complete with a mind-boggling Easter egg), it was the postcredits scene that may have brought us the most delight. Luckily for us, Chris Hemsworth tweeted a new behind-the-scenes clip that proves it was just as fun to make as it was to watch.

Of all the little extras Marvel Stusios have packaged with the DVD releases of their movie, Captain America’s Team Thor short was by far the best, a humorous look at what Thor got up to while the Avengers decide to split off and beat the tar out of each other. Basically, our favourite Asgardian relocated to Australia and moved in with normal human Darryl. Now Team Thor is back, found on the Blu-Ray release of Doctor Strange, and things haven’t gotten easier for Darryl as it is proving more and more difficult to share a house with the God of Thunder. We all know Chris Hemsworth had some comedy chops, but he knocks it out of the park here as an aloof, egotistical version of Thor. Check it out for your self below. »

This is the sequel no one could accuse of suffering from sequelitis.
Team Thor: Pt. 2, Where Are They Now? further explores the adventures of Thor (Chris Hemsworth) during the events of Captain America: Civil War, with the mockumetary showing the God of Thunder living in Australia with a roommate named Darryl (Daley Pearson).
Thor is having trouble paying rent (sorry, coins from Asgard don't cut it), and he rebuffs Darryl's suggestion to get a job. Afterall, he already has one — and it's called saving the planet.

The last time we checked in with Thor, the hammer-wielding hero helpfully answered the question on everyone’s mind: While we know the rest of his Avengers team was battling it out in “Captain America: Civil War,” what was the Asgardian God of thunder up to? In a short released last summer called “While You Were Fighting: A Thor Mockumentary,” directed by Taika Waititi, who is also at the helm of the upcoming “Thor: Ragnarok,” Thor invited the world into his new home in Australia where he lives with his long-suffering roommate Darryl. He dubbed them Team Thor, and thus a new iconic Marvel duo was born.

Thor (Chris Hemsworth) is the mightiest of all the Avengers, with his godly powers capable of laying waste to entire alien hordes. But when he’s on Earth he has no castles or servants or wild boars on skewers for feasting.
