Before Chris Hemsworth Fought to Keep Thor Fat in Avengers: Endgame, He Almost Played Gambit

Avengers: Endgame takes Thor to an emotional low point so dark that he sinks into an existential, alcohol-fueled depression. It causes the thunder god to go through a drastic physical transformation we don’t see until halfway through the film. When we first see Thor’s new form, it’s initially played for laughs, but as …Read more...

Why Working on 12 Marvel Movies Only Partially Prepared ILM for Avengers: Endgame

Imagine if Avengers: Endgame was the first Marvel movie. Not storywise, of course. That would be silly. But think about a team-up, comic book movie on this scale coming into theaters, sight unseen. Logistically, that feels like a nightmare for a ton of reasons, especially if a company (or several) was tasked with…Read more...

The Soul Stone Was the Marvel Cinematic Universe's Least Interesting MacGuffin

Avengers: Endgame's New Asgard Is Way More Digital Than You Realized

The best visual effects are the ones you don’t even know are there. In a film like Avengers: Endgame, it’s fairly obvious something like the Hulk is a digital effect.

Spider-Man: Far From Home's Stealth Suit Was Almost Too Cool for Peter Parker

Peter Parker lives a pretty cool life—one that gets a bit cooler in Spider-Man: Far From Home (even if he doesn’t want it to) when superspy Nick Fury shows up and gives him a mission.

Avengers: Endgame's Creators Keep Undoing the Good Will They Had by Explaining the Movie

While Avengers: Endgame is very good at drawing you into the sheer spectacle of itself as you’re watching, when you give it some distance, the movie’s narrative weaknesses become readily apparent.

Tom Holland Still Hasn't Seen Empire Strikes Back, Somehow

From Lego Death Stars to name dropping those “walker-thingies,” it’s clear the Peter Parker of the Marvel Cinematic Universe is a bit of a Star Wars nerd.

Avengers: Endgame Has Some Nerve Making Fun of Time Travel Movies

Marvel’s 1991 The Infinity Gauntlet storyline was a star-making event for Thanos, an alien tyrant with dreams of intergalactic genocide who was literally in love with Marvel’s personification of death, but that saga is so iconic that it’s easy to forget that he began his life as little more than a cosmic thug.
