Posted on Author RachelComments Off on Chris and Tom Hiddleston Discuss “Captain America: Civil War”
Following Thor’s decision to leave Earth at the end of Avengers: Age of Ultron, Earth’s Mightiest Heroes have been split right down the middle, and The Avengers have been disassembled. Meanwhile in Asgard, Loki sits on the throne as Odin in disguise, so nothing is currently as it seems! However, Thor: Ragnarok stars Chris Hemsworth and Tom Hiddleston had plenty to say about the events of Captain America: Civil War during an appearance at Wizard World Philadephia over this past weekend.
Asked how they believe Thor would react to finding out The Avengers went to war with each other, Hemsworth said: “I’d be like, ‘Sort it out, idiots. This is silly.’ I don’t know. I’m not sure how that story’s going to go when Thor comes back. But I think it will come as quite a shock that they all aren’t getting along—having a bit of a tiff.” Hiddleston then interjected by going full on Loki and adding, “When I came down to Earth, I brought you guys together. Now I’ve left and you’re fighting each other. Sorry. So sorry.” When Hemsworth suggested that, “Loki’s going to come back and lead them all,” the crowd ate it up as you can see below. That would be quite something to see play out, eh?
Given Loki’s history with Thanos, there’s a very good chance the God of Mischief will end up factoring into Avengers: Infinity War in some way, and him going out a hero would actually work really well (just look at Siege). We’ll just have to wait and see, but Thor: Ragnarok will no doubt drop some more hints about how both of these characters will factor into that movie when it’s released next year.

Two-time Oscar-winner Cate Blanchett joins Marvel Studios’ Thor: Ragnarok as the mysterious and powerful new villain Hela, along with Jeff Goldblum who joins the cast as the eccentric Grandmaster, Tessa Thompson who will bring the classic hero Valkyrie to life on the big screen, and Karl Urban who will add his might to the fray as Skurge.
Rounding out the cast for the film is three-time Oscar-nominee Mark Ruffalo, reprising his role of Bruce Banner/the Hulk from Marvel’s The Avengers and Marvel’s Avengers: Age of Ultron.
“The continuation of the epic Thor franchise will be powerful and unique, and with the additions of Cate, Jeff, Tessa, Karl, and Mark to the cast we have the makings of his most dangerous and heroic adventure yet,” said Producer Kevin Feige. “The sheer, raw talent each of these actors brings to the screen can’t be quantified. Having any one of them join the Marvel Cinematic Universe would be an honor, and having all of them is incredible.”
“Thor’s new cast members join returning stars Chris Hemsworth in the title role for the fifth time; Tom Hiddleston as Thor’s adversarial, adopted brother, Loki; Golden Globe and Screen Actors Guild Award winner Idris Elba as the Asgardian sentry, Heimdall; and Academy Award-winner Sir Anthony Hopkins again portraying Odin, Ruler of Asgard.

Posted on Author RachelComments Off on Natalie Portman Not Returning For “Thor: Ragnarok”
Following reports that Natalie Portman won’t appear in Thor: Ragnarok -— with Tessa Thompson starring as the film’s female lead — Marvel Studios boss Kevin Feige has come forward to confirm the actress is sitting this one out and shed some light as to why.
When asked by The Empire Film Podcast (via Heroic Hollywood) why Portman isn’t involved in Ragnarok, Feige said there are “many reasons,” including several that are made evident when watching the film. “There are only a couple of scenes on Earth in this movie,” he added, noting “80 to 90 percent takes place in the cosmos.”
Thor: Ragnarok is being directed by Taika Watiti and opens in theaters on November 3, 2017. While Marvel has yet to officially detail Thompson’s role, rumor has it the Creed star will play Valkyrie. (Source)
