Is Thor Getting His Cape Back For Avengers: Infinity War?

Out of all the characters in Joe and Anthony Russo’s Avengers: Infinity War, the one who will perhaps see the most change is Chris Hemsworth’s Thor. That’s not too surprising, either, given the state he was left in at the end of Ragnarok, but from a new weapon to slightly different armor, not to mention a potential replacement eye, the fan favorite hero will be undergoing some significant alterations in the pic.

Along with all of that, though, could we expect to see the God of Thunder get his classic red cape back, too? That’s certainly what this most recent piece of tie-in merchandise seems to suggest. As you’ll see in the gallery below, some new Avengers mini-figures are on the way and of course, Thor will be one of them. But what’s interesting is that he’s pictured with his cape here.

‘Black Panther’ Scorches Box Office Records, Sets the Bar for 2018 and Beyond

Marvel’s “Black Panther” (Disney) arrived with a record-breaking bang at the 2018 box office, outperforming pre-opening estimates for its three day U.S./Canada opening.

Check out its all-time records: “Black Panther” bests “Deadpool” by more than $50 million as the best February and pre-March opening weekends ever. It tops last year’s “Beauty and the Beast” as the best pre-May debut of all time. It nearly doubles “Furious 7” as the best opening for a black-directed film. It is triple the best previous record (held by “Straight Outta Compton”) for initial weekend of a film with a primarily black cast.

Those numbers will be re-counted when Sunday’s actual numbers are reported, plus the boost the movie will get from a four-day semi-holiday on Monday. And adjusting to an even playing field still leaves “Black Panther” remarkably (considering the month of release) among the ten best openers ever.

The Avengers Shatters All Expectations: Journey to Infinity War Part 6

Our journey to Infinity War continues by looking back at Marvel's The Avengers, which is perhaps the most important superhero movie in the history of the genre. And quite possibly the greatest, if you're like me and like to think of The Dark Knight as an action/thriller that happens to have a guy in a costume in it some of the time. In any case, so far, we've looked at all of Marvel's individual Phase 1 movies that got us to this point. Iron Man, The Incredible Hulk, Iron Man 2, Thor and Captain America: The First Avenger were leading us here. Everyone knew fairly quickly that they were taking us to an Avengers movie, but nothing like this had ever been done before. Nobody really knew if this could work. It not only works, it's still the gold standard for team-up movies and hasn't lost a step nearly

Which Marvel Film Has Made the Most Money? Here's the Whole List

Marvel Comics is one of the biggest production companies in the film industry at the moment, and with its new release of Black Panther, it is only going to continue to make more money - and rightfully so. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Disney and Marvel Studios' Black Panther is already making history at the Us box office - and will most likely stay that way - with an estimated $200 million in earnings for its four-day debut this President's Day weekend. The reason it could hit the $200 million mark in its opening weekend is based on its early Friday returns and the Thursday evening previews, which came in at $25.5 million, THR reported. That's insane! As of now, The Avengers has had the best opening weekend for a Marvel film, coming in at $207.4 million, and let's be honest: with so much hype and the acting, and action, to back it up,

The Marvel Olympics: ‘Black Panther’ wins gold as the most critically acclaimed McU movie by far – see how all 18 compare

The Marvel Olympics: ‘Black Panther’ wins gold as the most critically acclaimed McU movie by far – see how all 18 compare
Black Panther” opened on Friday, February 16, as the 18th movie in the Marvel Cinematic Universe since the interconnected superhero franchise began with “Iron Man” 10 years ago in 2008 — that averages out to 1.8 Marvel blockbusters every single year. Critics should be sick of it by now, shouldn’t they? Perhaps they are, which makes it even more impressive that this 18th entry in the McU canon has scored 87 on MetaCritic and 98% freshness on Rotten Tomatoes. That makes it the most acclaimed Marvel movie yet. So if Marvel were the Olympics — and goodness knows they have enough heroes to populate an Olympic team — it just captured the gold.

Black Panther” is co-written and directed by Ryan Coogler, who seems to be making a habit of resuscitating long-running franchises. In 2015 he brought Sylvester Stallone‘s Rocky Balboa back to the Oscars with his film “Creed.” This film follows the title character (Chadwick Boseman), a

After finding himself himself on Sakaar, Thor (Chris Hemsworth) is captured and sold as a gladiator to the Grandmaster (Jeff Goldblum), who rules the planet and orchestrates the Contest of Champions.

Kat Dennings Joins ABC Comedy Pilot Based on ‘How May We Hate You’

Kat Dennings Joins ABC Comedy Pilot Based on ‘How May We Hate You’
Kat Dennings has snagged one of the lead roles in the upcoming ABC comedy pilot based on the book and blog “How May We Hate You,” Variety has learned.

The currently untitled single-camera, workplace ensemble comedy centers on two guest service associates at a high-end resort and the co-workers and guests that they’re stuck with for eight to sixteen hours a day.

Dennings will play Ellie, a guest services specialist forced to wear a plastic smile as she deals with hotel clientele who pay more per night than she pays in rent each month. In debt from three botched attempts at different grad schools, Ellie is making ends meet by working beside her best friend Gabe at a high-end hotel. Dennings will also receive a producer credit on the show.

She is best known for her lead role on the hit CBS comedy “2 Broke Girls,” which ended after six seasons last year. She has also

Watch Director Taika Waititi Pitch a Weird Vision and Scarlet Witch Mocumentary Rom Com Film

Leave it to Thor: Ragnarok director Taika Waititi to want to make a mockumentary romantic comedy in the Marvel Universe. During a recent interview with Et, things got silly when the director was asked what Marvel character he would like to work with other than Thor in a solo film. He started of with talking about his interest in Vision and that escalated into a mocumentary rom-com involving Scarlet Witch.

Things took an even weirder turn when he added a plot twist to his pitch that Vision and Wanda aren't dating but are actually conjoined twins attached at the back!

We all know that Marvel isn't going to be diving into heavy rom-com territory like this. Waititi is just having a little fun... as he always does in his interviews. One thing is for sure, though, and that's that he would like to make another Thor film again! The director previously said:

If You Already Want a Sequel to Black Panther, Read This

Since 2008, Marvel Studios has been churning out big-budget blockbusters about various superheroes at a breakneck pace.

Chadwick Boseman is set to reprise the title role that he brought to life in Civil War. In the new film, T'Challa (aka Black Panther) returns to his home country of Wakanda (a fictional African country), only to be dragged back into the worldwide power struggle when enemies conspire to bring down his kingdom. T'Challa, as Black Panther, teams up with CIA agent Everett K. Ross (Martin Freeman) and members of Wakanda's special forces organization to prevent a world war. The special forces agents are played by Lupita Nyong'o,

We honestly can't decide who's cuter—Chris Hemsworth or the koala he's hugging. The Thor actor took to Instagram Monday to document the family's weekend trip to Kangaroo Island. Hemsworth and his kids, Sasha, Tristan and India Rose, spent the weekend visiting the wildlife park, walking alongside sea lions, fishing together and swimming with dolphins.

Berlinale: Studiocanal Introduces ‘One Nation, One King,’ ‘Mia and the White Lion’ (Exclusive)

Studiocanal, the film-tv production-distribution affiliate of Vivendi’s Canal Plus Group, will bring onto the market at Berlin one of France’s biggest plays of the year: “Un peuple, et son roi” (“One Nation, One King”), which Studiocanal will open in France on Sept. 26.

Budgeted at €16.9 million ($20.8 million), “One Nation, One King” is director Pierre Schoeller’s (“The Minister”) attempt to convey the scale of events of the 1789 French Revolution from the point of view of ordinary people, who for the first time were able to power events and develop a national consciousness instead of remaining passive victims.

Those revolutionaries are represented by two of France’s most-awarded young leads: Gaspard Ulliel, who won a best actor Cesar Award for Xavier Dolan’s “It’s Only the End of the World,” and Adèle Haenel, Cesar-nominated four times in the last decade, winning supporting actress for “Suzanne” and actress for “Love at First Fight.” Olivier Gourmet (“[link

Natalie Portman Is Open To Returning To The McU

At the time it was seen as quite a casting coup when Marvel Studios landed Natalie Portman for the female lead role in the first Thor movie, as the actress had just won an Academy Award for Black Swan and was highly sought after for a number of projects by several different studios. Unfortunately, her character Jane Foster didn’t really make much of an impact, and despite appearing in the first sequel, Thor: The Dark World, Portman didn’t reprise the role for Ragnarok.

Though fans didn’t take to Jane, it had nothing to do with the actress’ performance – the character was simply underwritten and came across as a bit bland. With that in mind, is there any chance we could see the talented star return to the McU one day? It doesn’t seem likely given the direction the franchise has been heading in lately, but at the very least,

Captain America Becomes The First Avenger: Journey to Infinity War Part 5

Captain America Becomes The First Avenger: Journey to Infinity War Part 5
As we soldier on with our journey to Infinity War series, we take a look back at Captain America: The First Avenger, which I'll start talking about by saying this may very well be the most underrated move in the Marvel Cinematic Universe to date. But first, just to recap, we've covered every single Phase 1 solo movie so far, including Iron Man, The Incredible Hulk, Iron Man 2 and Thor. That just leaves Cap. The First Avenger was the final piece of the puzzle Marvel Studios needed to put in place in order to make The Avengers happen.

This is a movie that I feel many could do well to revisit. We've all come to not just love, but adore Chris Evans as Captain America and much of that has to do with the excellent trilogy of movies his character has been privy to outside of The Avengers movies. However,

Thor: Ragnarok Deleted Scene Gets Weird with Jeff Goldblum

Thor: Ragnarok has its fair share of weird moments, but this new deleted scene featuring Jeff Goldblum's Grandmaster having a tentacle party might take the cake. The scene was released in an effort to promote the movie coming out on Blu-ray and digitally in the next handful of weeks and it's a great reminder of how unique Taika Waititi's vision is. Thor: Ragnarok was a smash hit at the box office and did well with critics, despite the negative reaction that some long-time Marvel fans had with it.

While Jeff Goldblum steals the show as a hologram in the newly released deleted scene, he's far from alone. Chris Hemsworth's Thor is there, getting weirded out by the Grandmaster hologram as is Mark Ruffalo's Bruce Banner who is eating some weird "noodles." After Thor figures out a way to turn off the hologram, he and Banner get
