‘Thor: Love and Thunder’ Aims to Begin Filming in Early 2021

Thanks to the coronavirus, we’re currently in the middle of the longest period between Marvel movies since Iron Man launched the Marvel Cinematic Universe back in 2008.

Thor: Love and Thunder, the next Thor sequel from writer/director Taika Waititi, is evidently eyeing a ...

English “brand” and the etymology of “sword”: the denouement

With this post behind me, I’ll finally be able to beat my sword into a workable plowshare. Today, the immediate theme is the history of the word brand and its cognates, but it is also a springboard to an important conclusion. This is what we find in our texts about the first noun in the title. Old Engl. brand, also spelled as brond (a ~ o is a typical variation before n), meant “fire, flame” and “sword, weapon.” The sense “sword” was rare, but the Beowulf poet knew it (in the poem, brond is a sy...

Of all the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s missteps and plot holes (for which there are very few), 2008’s  The Incredible Hulk  might be its biggest inconsistency. It wasn’t a bad film; however, as the second official entry in the MCU, it didn’t align itself with the tone or acclaim of Jon Favreau’s  Iron Man . Not even the end credits sequence  where Robert Downey JR’s Tony Stark recruits General Ross to find Hulk for the “tea...
