Of course Benedict Cumberbatch and Tom Hiddleston are old friends. Well, Cumberbatch at first made sure to point out that he wouldn’t be talking to Hiddleston about a certain blonde singer, who at the time of their discussion he was dating, and instead focused on Hiddleston’s return to the Marvel Cinematic Universe as Loki.
Marvel Comics legend Stan Lee has already notched up his next four appearances in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. MCU boss Kevin Feige confirmed the actorly movements of Mr Lee in a Q&A following a screening of ‘Captain America: Civil War’ at the weekend.
Tom Hiddleston, Chris Hemsworth and ‘Thor: Ragnarok’ director Taika Waititi have stopping traffic on the set of the forthcoming Marvel movie. Hiddleston, reprising his role as antagonist/anti-hero/adopted brother Loki, appears to have taken a leaf out of John Travolta’s book from ‘Pulp Fiction’, sporting a black, hit-man style suit. Meanwhile, Hemsworth appears to have his flowing Thor locks fully intact, after rumours that the Norse god was going to be busting a short ‘do for this new instalment.
Natalie Portman has admitted that her time in the Marvel Cinematic Universe as Jane Foster has, for now at least, come to an end. It’s long been suspected that we wouldn’t see Portman within the hallowed walls of the Marvel Universe any time soon, especially after it was confirmed that she wouldn’t feature in ‘Thor: Ragnarok’, where she’s been replaced by Tessa Thompson and Cate Blanchett.
Tom Hiddleston should perhaps have expected a bit of flack after joining Instagram. Hiddleston set up his page yesterday, to much excitement among fans, and it took the ‘Iron Man’ star just minutes to take a cheeky swipe at his fellow Marvel alumnus. The t-shirt, of course, refers to Hiddleston’s rather public goings on with the pop star Taylor Swift.
God bless Twitter. Because only in this day and age are we able to see two Marvel directors joking with each other about their upcoming projects in such a public fashion. On Tuesday the pair took to Twitter to discuss the possible participation of Tom Holland’s Spider-Man in ‘Thor: Ragnarok’, and it quickly turned both hilarious and very, very dark.
Marvel’s ‘Thor: Ragnarok’ is still in its production stage, but director Taika Waititi has spoken about the decision to deviate from the comic books. The helmer, who previously directed ‘What We Do In The Shadows’ and most recently ‘Hunt for the Winderpeople’, made the decision to cast Tessa Thompson (’Dear White People’, ’Creed’) in the role of Norse heroine Valkyrie.
British actor Tom Hiddleston’s completely dismissed the idea that he’ll become the next James Bond once current 007 Daniel Craig hangs up his tuxedo.
Every little thing we hear about ‘Thor: Ragnarok’ increases excitement for the Marvel blockbuster. Obviously just the thought of Tom Hiddleston’s Loki and Chris Hemsworth’s Thor together again was enough to begin with. Mark Ruffalo has continued this delightful trend with the revelation that ‘Thor: Ragnarok’ has been partly inspired by the road movie genre, confirming that Thor and Hulk are like an odd couple.
