Netflix’s The Punisher is a Brutal Humanisation of Frank Castle That Can’t Face Its Own Demons

The last time we saw Frank Castle (Jon Bernthal) in Marvel’s Cinematic Universe, he’d fully embraced his Punisher persona and taken to doling out his personal brand of justice even after he’d killed the people directly responsible for the death of his family. It’s interesting, then, that that man is not the Frank Castle we meet in the opening moments of Netflix’s The Punisher. Read More >>

The End Credit Scene of Thor: Ragnarok Could Have Been Something Very, Very Different

By now you probably know that Thor: Ragnarok has two end credit scenes. The first is the big one that ties into the larger Marvel Cinematic Universe.

So What the Hell Is Ragnarok, Anyway?

Thor: Ragnarok is now in cinemas — but its titular apocalypse is more than a casual allusion to the Norse mythology that Marvel’s hero originates from. It’s a reference to an event in the comics that has hounded the God of Thunder since his adventures first began. Here’s everything you need to know about it. Read More >>

You Can Thank the Ghostbusters Reboot for all the Comedy in Thor: Ragnarok

The reaction to the Ghostbusters reboot was always a bit, erm, negative, to put it lightly. The final film wasn't exactly bad, but it wasn't all that good either - except for the inclusion of Chris Hemsworth as Kevin, the dumb blonde receptionist. It turns out that role helped transform the newly released Thor: Ragnarok from a Shakespearean drama and into a full-blown comedy. Read More >>

All The Easter Eggs and References Hiding in Thor: Ragnarok

Thor: Ragnarok is out today, and seeing as how it's a comic book adaption (and one made by Marvel at that) we went in looking to hunt down all the easter eggs and references we knew this film was going to be full of. Full isn't the right word, though, because Ragnarok is absolutely teaming with easter eggs. So many that it's just over 3,000 words to include them all. Read More >>

Jeff Goldblum Is Already Teasing a Delightful Future For His Thor: Ragnarok Character

Jeff Goldblum’s turn as the Grandmaster is one of the most exciting things about Thor: Ragnarok. Who needs superhero action when you could have Jeff Goldblum at his, well, Goldblummiest?

Thor: Ragnarok Director Taika Waititi Wants to Make a Marvel Comedy With a Surprising Avenger

For Taika Waititi, something about Thor: Ragnarok just made sense. The character’s humour in all his previous appearance almost screamed for a director with his unique comedic skills to come on board the franchise. But did Waititi, who’d previously directed What We Do In the Shadows and Hunt for the Wilderpeople, ever consider other Marvel characters his brand of humour might fit with? Read More >>
