‘Thor: Love and Thunder’ Will Feel Like a New ‘Avengers’ Sequel

It looks like Thor: Love and Thunder is going to have such a big cast of Marvel players that it might end up feeling like Avengers 5. The Taika Waititi sequel is of course bringing back key players Chris Hemsworth, Tessa Thompson, and Natalie Portman. But a new report points to a “sprawling cast” that suggests the film might follow in the footsteps of Captain America: Civil War – a movie that features multiple key Marvel characters without being a big Avengers sequel. In a new THR report abo...

‘Hitman’ Filmmaker Xavier Gens Explains Why He Turned Down a Marvel Movie

Marvel Studios has no shortage of directors who would gladly work for them — and vice versa, as there’s no shortage of directors who would quickly turn them down. Directing a Marvel movie might offer a great boost for many filmmakers, but Hitman director Xavier Gens doesn’t want to be one of them. The French director behind genre films like Frontier(s) and Gareth Evans’ currently-airing crime series Gangs of London revealed that he was in discussions with Marvel to direct a project, but turned ...

‘Thor: Love and Thunder’ Cast: Chris Pratt to Return as Star-Lord

Chris Pratt, the internet’s current least favorite Chris, is joining the much more beloved Chris Hemsworth in Thor: Love and Thunder. Pratt’s Star-Lord/Peter Quill will appear in the Taika Waititi sequel, which makes sense since Avengers: Endgame concluded with Thor jetting off with the Guardians of the Galaxy. That said, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 doesn’t have an official release date yet, so it’s not exactly clear how all of this lines up on the Marvel Cinematic Universe timeline. The ...

Kat Dennings Doesn’t Think She’ll Be Back For Thor: Love and Thunder

Kat Dennings Doesn’t Think She’ll Be Back For Thor: Love and Thunder When Thor: Ragnarok opened in 2017, it notably omitted a handful of supporting characters from the previous two Thor movies. One of the missing cast members was Kat Dennings’ Darcy Lewis, who served as a primary source of comic relief in the earlier films.

Marvel’s Thrilling Thor Saga

Marvel’s Thor Movies On November 3, 2017, Thor: Ragnarok officially hit theaters in America. Upon watching it with my family, my parents made numerous comments, saying this movie was a lot better than the older two Thor movies.

The first-ever Thor movie made by Marvel was directed by Kenneth Branagh and came to theaters on May 2, 2011. Overall, I ...

‘Free Guy’ Director Shawn Levy and Star Ryan Reynolds Hope Their Silly, Hopeful Comedy Will be the Antidote for 2020

The upcoming action comedy Free Guy is built around a wild high-concept premise: what if an ordinary person living in a chaotic world learned that their reality was a video game and they were simply a background character within it? And what if that outrageous concept was really a metaphor about taking control of your existence and learning to connect with others? That was the key takeaway during an online press conference for the film, where director Shawn Levy, stars Ryan Reynolds and Jodie C...
