Thor #266 - Walt Simonson art & cover

Walt Simonson Thor v1 #266, 1977 - Can Odin be found before Loki's manipulation of the Destroyer turns catastrophic? Midway through his first run on the series, Walt Simonson's efforts continue to stymied by an overbearing inker. There is little semblance to his usual style, which incorporates more careful sequencing. This is number 7 of 55 Thor issues with Simonson art and/or covers. - - - - [Author: Ted Ignacio]

The Final Avengers: Endgame Trailer Is HERE And So Is Captain Marvel

ONLY ONE MORE MONTH GUYS The latest Avengers: Endgame trailer is here and I’m gonna be real with you, things are looking just as bleak as they did in the first trailer back in December. In fact, I’d argue this one actually hurts more. The trailer opens with a montage of scenes from the heroes’ standalone movies, reminding us just how far everyone has come and how simple things were back then. Also the montage is in black and white because Marvel just really wants to hammer in how sad this ...

‘Avengers: Endgame’ Trailer Breakdown: Whatever It Takes…to Keep the Secrets Intact

This morning, Marvel Studios shook up a normal Thursday with a surprise trailer drop for Avengers: Endgame. Since we’ve only had a short theatrical teaser trailer and a Super Bowl spot for the movie, fans were excited to finally get a good solid look at some brand spankin’ new footage. However, since Marvel is playing things so close to the vest, they cleverly utilized footage from the previous films in the Marvel Cinematic Universe to pad it out. Even so, we still got a good minute and a half ...

Abandoned ‘Captain Marvel’ Post-Credits Scene Almost Tied Back to ‘Thor: Ragnarok’ Instead

After Avengers: Infinity War only gave us one credits scene, Captain Marvel returns to the Marvel Studios standard of having both a mid-credits scene and a post-credits scene. As we discussed last weekend, the mid-credits scene is a big set-up for Avengers: Endgame, and the post-credits scene is a fun little coda following the events of Captain Marvel. But directors Ryan Fleck and Anna Boden almost had an alternate Captain Marvel credits scene that tied back to Thor: Ragnarok. Beware of spoiler...

‘Good Boys’ Review: Humor and Heart Headline This Maturely Childish Riot [SXSW]

There is, despite countless American Pie and Road Trip spin-offs arguing otherwise, an art to shaping R-rated comedies. Rawdog raunchiness and “F-bombs” alone don’t equate to laugh-a-minute genius. Take a movie like Good Boys . Gene Stupnitsky ’s hilarious adolescent comicality boasts heart, message, and humor in the precisely right places. Lesser creators would’ve leaned heavily on cursing “tweens” thinking with their pre-pubescent naughty parts, yet Stupnitsky and co-writer Lee Eis...

‘Star Wars’ Has Even Stricter Guidelines Than Marvel, According to Taika Waititi

Taika Waititi is no stranger to working under secretive conditions, but it seems that one Disney-owned studio is stricter than the others. The Thor: Ragnarok director recently journeyed to a galaxy far, far away to helm an episode of the upcoming Disney+ series, The Mandalorian. There, he learned the secrets of the Star Wars universe — but nothing he can tell us about. Because it turns out that Star Wars keeps its directors on an even tighter leash than Marvel Studios. One of the most antici...

‘Captain Marvel’s 90s Setting Gets Confusing Thanks to the Film’s Soundtrack, Stan Lee’s Cameo & More

Captain Marvel is the first movie in the Marvel Cinematic Universe set entirely in the 1990s. More specifically, thanks to certain revelations in the movie, both in the plot and background details, the movie takes place in 1995. That makes all those children of the ’90s who now have kids of their own feeling nostalgic for Blockbuster Video, baggy flannel shirts, beepers, throwback radio hits, arcade games, and more. But the nostalgia for the decade is also creating some confusion within the rea...

Why Nick Fury Didn’t Page Captain Marvel Before ‘Infinity War’, According To Kevin Feige

In Captain Marvel, we learn how Samuel L. Jackson‘s character Nick Fury first meets up with Carol Danvers in the mid-1990s. After seeing the film, the big question in a lot of fans minds is: why didn’t Nick Fury page Captain Marvel when a big wormhole opened over New York City and a massive alien assault happened on Earth in The Avengers? I asked Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige this exact question, and here is his response. Here is a snippet from my interview with Kevin Feige. The full inter...

THOR wrangles complex microbiomes into a model for improving them

Researchers at the University of Wisconsin developed a community they named THOR, three species of bacteria isolated from soybean roots and grown together. The complex community of microbes developed new behaviors together that couldn't be predicted from the individual members alone -- they grew tougher structures known as biofilms, changed how they moved across their environment, and controlled the release of a novel antibiotic.

MOTO PHOTOS: 2019 One Moto Show, Portland, Oregon

Written by Scott Hopkin It’s crazy to think that nine years ago we featured a few bikes from a random little show in Portland called the ‘One Moto Show’. Then it its second year, it had 75 bikes and around 1500 bike enthusiasts come through the doors to check out this ‘new wave’ of custom bikes. The show was started by a Portland local called Thor Drake. Ten years later and Thor is still cranking out this show – just at a much larger scale. It now features over 200 bikes and thousands of p...

VOTD: See the Marvel Cinematic Universe Without Visual Effects

Over the years, we’ve featured plenty of visual effects breakdowns for blockbusters movies. Many of the most impressive displays come from Marvel Studios, especially when it comes to creating entire environments from scratch, turning blue screen covered streets and scaffolds into a completely different location. Entire characters are created using a mix of visual effects and motion capture technology. It’s movie magic at its finest, and now a new video takes a look back at the years of outstand...
