Tessa Thompson Describes Valkyrie's 'Quite Erotic' Superpowers – Love And Thunder, Indeed

If you've lamented the distinct and much-documented lack of sexiness in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (I know I have!), here's a titillating sip of news to quench your thirst. Tessa Thompson spoke about Valkyrie's role in "Thor: Love and Thunder" this week, and she described her hero's powers as "erotic."Thompson sat down with W Magazine for a profile that touched upon her "Love and Thunder" role. As you may remember from 2017's "Thor: Ragnarok," Val is a legendary fighter who drowns her sorrows...

John Wick 4: Total Badass Clancy Brown Shares Details On Who He's Playing

There aren't many actors around these days who can still bring it the way Clancy Brown does, folks. The actor's filmography is filled with a seemingly countless number of roles that we could never imagine anyone else embodying, from "Highlander" to "The Shawshank Redemption" to "Starship Troopers." Millennials are familiar with Brown from voicing the irrepressible Mr. Krabs in "Spongebob Squarepants" and animation fans in general know him from voicing Lex Luthor in "Superman: The Animated Series...

Upcoming Chris Pratt Movies To Keep On Your Radar

(Welcome to On Your Radar, a series where we take a look at what's next for the biggest actors and filmmakers, and why you should be excited...or not.)Chris Pratt has undergone a pretty amazing transformation over the last handful of years in Hollywood. At one point, he was just known as the lovable goofball from "Parks and Recreation," but thanks to the double whammy of "Guardians of the Galaxy" and "Jurassic World" in 2014 and 2015, he became a massive movie star. That being the case, the man ...

Tom Hiddleston Teases A More Heroic Loki In Season 2

One of my most indelible New York Comic-Con memories was being in the big hall for Marvel's "The Avengers" panel back in 2011, where they showed some footage and Chris Evans and Mark Ruffalo showed up. But then Tom Hiddleston came out and the audience lit up. You would think Justin Bieber or "Twilight"-era Robert Pattinson had just hit the stage -- that's the intensity of the love fans already felt for Hiddleston and the character of Loki after only one appearance in "Thor."Flash-forward to the ...

Hawkeye Is Built For Casual Marvel Fans, And That's Why It Works

There are hardcore Marvel fans, and then there are people like me. People like me catch every new Marvel release, but maybe not during opening weekend. Maybe we sit through a few like they're homework, just to make the next "Avengers" movie make sense. We are the non-committal Marvel fans, the ones who are mostly here for the vibes. I love "Thor: Ragnarok," have always had a hard time caring about "Captain America," and my main takeaway from "Spider-Man: Far From Home" is that it's a great unint...

Thor: The Dark World Originally Had A Much Different Ending For Thor And Jane

Despite what /Film's review said about it back in 2013, many True Believers agree that "Thor: The Dark World" is probably one of the worst offerings from the Marvel Cinematic Universe to date. Even Thor himself agrees that it just wasn't very good. (It's definitely my least favorite MCU movie, despite having a poster for it hanging above my desk. But it's signed by Stan Lee!)Script issues like an overabundance of exposition and the terrible misuse of Christopher Eccleston's Malekith the Accursed...

How Eternals Fails To Live Up To The Potential Of Jack Kirby

There's no getting around it: Marvel Studios' new film "Eternals" is a weird movie. Not just weird compared to other Marvel Cinematic Universe movies, but compared to all movies that came before or since. It contains rapid-fire tonal shifts that make your head spin, jumping from light comedy to action to cosmic sci-fi and back again seemingly without blinking. The film slings strong themes we're not used to seeing in a PG-13 superhero flick, things like sex (and sexual identity), suicide, and th...

The 14 Best The Real Ghostbusters Episodes

The animated series "The Real Ghostbusters" ran from 1986 to 1991, the "Real" prefix added to distinguish it from Filmation's animated series of the same name, which was based on a live-action TV show that aired back in the mid-'70s. A spin-off from the incredibly popular 1984 movie "Ghostbusters," it continued the saga of Egon Spengler, Ray Stantz, Winston Zeddemore, and Peter Venkman (with the cast's appearances all slightly tweaked to avoid any pesky arguments over likeness rights, of course)...

Who Is Arishem In Eternals? The Leader Of The Four Celestial Hosts Explained

Once upon a time, Marvel fans lost their minds over getting just the slightest hint of the otherworldly Celestials during one brief moment in the first "Guardians of the Galaxy" movie and a subsequent trip into the disembodied head of another. Since then, the James Gunn's "Guardians" sequel introduced a villain named "Ego the Living Planet," "Thor: Ragnarok" ended with a giant fire monster wiping out the entire realm of Asgard, and Thanos snapped half the universe out of existence (don't worry, ...

Taika Waititi is going for gold as one of Hollywood's busiest directors. The Oscar-winner has been tapped for all sorts of projects in the last few years — including his upcoming Thor sequel, his entry into "Star Wars," and an adaptation of Flash Gordon. Now, he's adding another title to the mix, and it's a really ambitious project: Waititi will direct an adaptation of Alejandro Jodorowsky and late artist Mœbius' graphic novel, "The Incal."The seminal 1970s comic is an epic space opera and remai...

The Best Non-Marvel Movies From Marvel Directors

How does Marvel Studios keep doing it? Almost 30 films in, the Marvel Cinematic Universe has only ballooned in popularity, building a reputation for reliability on a level unmatched by every other major multimedia franchise. There's no singular secret ingredient to Marvel's success, but it's hard not to attribute part of its everlasting appeal to its penchant for a variety of talent. Instead of the same handful of directors, Marvel Studios has given big projects to proven and talented filmmakers...

It's hard to believe that movie directors can get caught up on little things like losing your passport, but it happens.

The Surprising Origins Behind Rick And Morty's Catchphrase

"Rick and Morty" fans are known to be loyal and intense, often waiting patiently for years for new episodes of Adult Swim's edgy animated show to air. For many, their love of the show is imbedded in the strength of its comedic writing. This is understandable, with co-creators Dan Harmon (creator of "Community") and Justin Roiland at the helm. The comedy often bends genre tropes in on themselves to twist what's possible in an animated show, but even "Rick and Morty" can't escape one of the strong...
