Why can’t we do Thor?

“If they give the show a chance, it will become very clear to them that it wasn’t the Marvel production that we had our eye on. This is the seemingly existential question that hounds the upcoming primetime show Victor Magtanggol. Long before its scheduled premiere tonight at the coveted early night primetime spot of GMA-7, the show has been […].....»»

Solenn Heussaff almost divorced Nico Bolzico because of Chris Hemsworth

I may have found the best thing on the Internet last night: Solenn Heussaff fangirling over AvengersstarsChris Hemsworth. So much that she "almost divorced" Nico Bolzico. (Don't worry, not an actual divorce.) Solenn and Nico are in Singapore right now for the reopening of Hugo Boss' concept store.

"She wants a divorce!" he joked on Instagram Stories as Solenn removed her wedding ring. Solenn also told Nico that she won't take a photo or video of him if he stood next to Riccardo Messi. LOL!

The ‘Black Panther’ standard

This is the true power of Marvel. Because of its prolific and successful nature, the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) is not only able to give us the big guns of the MC such as Iron Man, Thor and Captain America, but is also able to explore the lesser-known characters such as the Guardians of the Galaxy and Ant-Man. Marvel Studios has shown it is equally at ease making such quirkier fare as it is at the more predictable projects. But that still doesn't prepare audiences for just how good "Black Panther" is. Growing up, the Black Panther was one of my favorite Marvel characters. At first it was just the sleek costume, but later it was his dual nature of superhero and king, scientist and...Keep on reading: The ‘Black Panther’ standard.....»»

"Thor: Ragnarok" has stood out from previous Thor films in part because of its rocking soundtrack.

‘Thor: Ragnarok’ really rocks

WITH his long blond hair and magic hammer, the Mighty Thor has always been one of Marvel Comics' iconic characters. Thor has some serious history, the creation of Stan Lee, Larry Lieber and Jack Kirby in 1962 based on the Norse god of thunder. It was a no-brainer to bring Thor to the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) with Chris Hemsworth taking on the Odinson's mantle in 2011's "Thor," two "Avengers" films and 2013's "Thor: The Dark World" to generally good reviews and positive box office. This is, after all, literally the stuff of opera and mythology. But the drama may have been too much. Visually striking and epic, "Thor: The Dark World" was also so grim and serious to the point o...Keep on reading: ‘Thor: Ragnarok’ really rocks.....»»
