Patty Jenkins Is Grateful She Didn't Direct Thor: The Dark World

If all went according to plan, Patty Jenkins would’ve been the first woman to direct a Marvel Cinematic Universe film six years before anyone else. The Wonder Woman director was set to make the Thor: The Dark World back in 2013 but left early in the process due to “creative differences.” Now, years later, she’s opened…Read more...

Patty Jenkins is “Super Grateful” She Didn’t End Up Directing ‘Thor: The Dark World’

2013’s Thor: The Dark World is widely regarded as one of the worst movies in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. It’s currently the lowest-rated MCU film on Rotten Tomatoes, even coming up short of 2008’s The Incredible Hulk. (That’s genuinely impressive!) Thankfully, though, the movie’s reputation is only as the MCU’s punching bag and not as a career-ruiner for its one-time director Patty Jenkins, who went on to great success as the filmmaker behind DC’s Wonder Woman movies. In a new interview, Jen...

‘Avengers: Endgame’ Brought Back One MCU Star with Recycled Footage

There are a lot of surprising (and not-so-surprising) cameos in Avengers: Endgame.

You probably could’ve guessed this while watching the scene in question play-out, but now it’s been confirmed.

Road to Endgame: ‘Thor: The Dark World’ is a Metaphor for Its Own Massive Problems

(Welcome to  Road to Endgame , where we revisit all 22 movies of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and ask, “How did we get here?” In this edition:  Thor: The Dark World  defines Marvel’s “villain problem” but doesn’t do much else.) Thor: The Dark World  plays like Marvel’s first truly troubled production. The rush to get the ball rolling saw the exit of  Thor   director Kenneth Branagh, after which Patty Jenkins was hired but departed soon after, citing creative differences. It was for the best...

Chris Hemsworth Agrees With You That ‘Thor: The Dark World’ Isn’t Very Good

If you thought Thor: The Dark World was bad (and it was), you’re not alone! Thor himself, AKA Chris Hemsworth, doesn’t care for it either. In a recent interview, the actor revealed that he found the sequel to Thor to be “meh”, which is a nice way of saying it stinks. Thankfully, director Taika Waititi came along to rescue the franchise. The Thor franchise was one of the least exciting elements of the Marvel Cinematic Universe…until Thor: Ragnarok came along. The first film, 2011’s Thor was p...

Christopher Eccleston Wanted to Die Making ‘Thor: The Dark World,’ And 7 Other Disgruntled Ex-Marvel Actors

Marvel Studios has had a spectacular run of critically acclaimed movies, and are far and away the most consistent producers of comic book movies. But you gotta break a few eggs to make an omelet. And the MCU has more than a few bad eggs. Thor: The Dark World and Iron Man 2 are just a few of those bad eggs that Marvel would rather you forget. But how do the actors who starred in those critical flops feel about that? About the same — except they’re not afraid to disparage Marvel a little bit now ...

The Evolution of Thor: From Serious Warrior to Silly Superhero

When Chris Hemsworth‘s Thor made his hammer-smashing debut in the Marvel Cinematic Universe in 2011, his character was ripped directly from comic book pages, staying true to his origins and persona – a noble warrior whose sole reason for existing is to protect his home world of Asgard, his people, and the rest of the nine realms. In the greater timeline of the MCU, Thor appears in his own stand-alone trilogy (Thor, Thor: The Dark World, Thor: Ragnarok), two ensemble films (The Avengers, Avenger...

Hela Was Originally the Villain for ‘Thor: The Dark World’: Kevin Feige Talks ‘Thor: Ragnarok’

A few weeks back, I had my annual sit-down with Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige to talk about the latest Marvel movie, Thor: Ragnarok. We will be running the more spoiler-filled bits from the interview next week, but today, I present to you the non-spoiler section. In the interview, Feige reveals that Hela was initially planned to be the villain of the second Thor film, Thor: The Dark World, and talks about how Ragnarok evolved into what we see on the big screen. He also talks about the collabo...

All the Marvel Big Bads, Ranked By Badness

I totally get that you don’t want to read an introduction about how there’s a new (great) Marvel Cinematic Universe villain because of Spider-Man: Homecoming.

Guardians of the Galaxy: Mission Breakout Easter Eggs

Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: Breakout opened last week at Disneyland Resort’s Disney California Adventure.

Stan Lee Cameo Ranking: Every MCU Appearance From Worst To Best

Greetings, true believers. There’s yet another Marvel Cinematic Universe film tearing up the box office –  Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 . As with all MCU films, there’s world-building, in-jokes, action, adventure, and of course, the prerequisite Stan Lee cameo. For more than 40 years now, Lee has been the most recognizable public face for Marvel properties, even the ones he had nothing directly to do with. Much like the Marvel post-credit sequence, a cameo from Lee is expected from fan...

Which Characters Will (And Won’t) Appear in ‘Avengers: Infinity War’

When Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige announced Avengers: Infinity War, it was positioned as a two-film epic crossover event that would be the culmination of everything Marvel had planned up to that point. So with both films about to start shooting concurrently, I thought it might be fun to take a look at all the characters confirmed or rumored to be part of Avengers: Infinity War, and theorize how they may play into this story. Anthony Russo has said that “[Captain America:] Civil War was a...
