LEGO Marvel Super Heroes was a gigantic game with so much to do that I never approached finishing anything other than the campaign. So the sequel, naturally, is even bigger with several huge hub worlds, a campaign through time and space, and over 200 Marvel characters to find and add to your army of plastic heroes and villains. Kang is the big bad in this game, and I am going to spare you the bare minimum five paragraph explanation on who he is….but he’s a big bad. The emphasis is on Guardians and alternate versions of our heroes, but the traditional Avengers are still there. Get to building. This one is already out.

Tilda Swinton is a true chameleon. In her three decades of acting she’s played white witches, greedy corporate shills, eccentric women of every variety, androgynous ancient wizards, archangels, and decrepit old men. Her best known films: Michael Clayton, Narnia, and Doctor Strange, all featured her, but she usually pops in out of the blue made up in a completely different way than you’ve ever seen her before in a small role that always adds something to the film. Her crowning achievements, though, are her Oscar-winning role as the desperate corporate lawyer in Michael Clayton and, they may reboot the Narnia series, but they’ll never get a White Witch as dangerous and cunning as Swinton’s. I always enjoy seeing her name in a cast list, because half the challenge will typically be recognizing which role she played; odds are, it’ll be a standout performance.

Thor: Ragnarok is absolutely jam-packed full of Easter Eggs for both Thor and Hulk. I caught a lot of them, but nowhere near as many as Screencrush did and they’ve created the comprehensive guide to secrets in Ragnarok. So, obviously, SPOILER WARNING, and go try to pick them out of the film yourself a few times before giving this a go and seeing how many of the 29 you can find.
Thor: Ragnarok makes the MCU three for three in 2017. Three excellent additions to the Marvel Cinematic Universe that could not be more different from each other, except that they all brought the funny. Thor’s third solo outing is his best, ably directed by relatively unknown Kiwi director Taika Waititi. If all you need to know is if the film is worth the rave reviews that it is getting: it is. If you want to know if, unlike Guardians 2 and Spider-Man: Homecoming, if this film has big MCU plot twists in it: it does. And if you just want to know how many post-credits scenes there are: two. I don’t do spoilery reviews of MCU movies, but that’s all you need to know if you were on the verge about going or not.

In the third trailer for Thor: Ragnarok (also the Japanese trailer in which the film’s weird lettering makes sense for the first time), we get mostly footage from the first two trailers, but it does have a very new beginning featuring Doctor Strange. We knew Benedict Cumberbatch’s Sorcerer Supreme would be in the film from one of Doctor Strange‘s end credits scenes last year, but he opens this trailer, which has a much more dire tone than the humor of the first two, by telling Thor that his fate has changed and destiny has dire plans for him. Read below for the official synopsis. Thor: Ragnarok hits theaters November 3, 2017. Continue reading Thor: Ragnarok Trailer #3 (2017) “Thor, Destiny Has Dire Plans For You”
