Marvel's New Captain America Is Black, Thor Is A Woman And There's A 'Superior Iron Man' On The Way

July 18th, 2014 4:15pm EDT
Marvel's New Captain America Is Black, Thor Is A Woman And There
Marvel comics has been rolling out some major new changes lately by announcing on Wednesday that in a new Thor series the titular character will now be a woman (not She-Thor, mind you, just 'Thor'). With the previous Thor no longer worthy of carrying his hammer Mjolnir, a mysterious new character will now take the mantle of the mightiest Avenger.

With the new Thor news comes a big change to another Avenger -- Captain America.

Marvel also announced on Wednesday that there will be a new Captain, this time sidekick Sam Wilson, aka The Falcon, will carry the red, white and blue shield after S...

Female Thor Will Be 'Unlike Any Thor We've Ever Seen Before'
Marvel Comics shocked fans on Tuesday by announcing that Thor will be recreated as a woman.

Marvel editor Wil Moss said in a statement: "The inscription on Thor's hammer reads 'Whosoever holds this hammer, if HE be worthy, shall possess the power of Thor.' Well it's time to update that inscription.

"The new Thor continues Marvel’s proud tradition of strong female characters like Captain Marvel, Storm, Black Widow and more. And this new Thor isn’t a temporary female substitute – she’s now the one and only Thor, and she is worthy!"

Writer Jason Aaron added: "This is not She-Thor. This is n...

Box Office Predictions: 'Hobbit' Vs. 'Anchorman' Vs. 'American Hustle'

December 20th, 2013 10:11am EST
Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues
1) The Hobbit: The Desolation Of Smaug- 35M Weekend, 126M Total

Even with an impending 50% drop, it looks as if The Hobbit is going to win the weekend, but Will Ferrell and company are putting up a big fight. Had Anchorman opened on Friday, the demand might have put it higher, but with a spread out 5 day weekend.

2) Anchorman 2- 30M Weekend, 45M Total

The hit comedy managed 8M on Wednesday, putting it on a fast track for a huge weekend, heading into an even bigger Christmas. The counter programming here is perfect, as it is really unlike everything else in the top 10. An Anchorman 3 seem...

'The Hobbit: The Desolation Of Smaug' Tops Weekend Box Office

December 16th, 2013 6:49am EST
The Hobbit: The Desolation Of Smaug
The Hobbit: The Desolation Of Smaug has knocked Disney's Frozen from the top of the box office, pulling in a whopping $73.7 million on its opening weekend.

Peter Jackson's epic fantasy sequel becomes the fourth biggest December debut behind part one of the trilogy, The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, Will Smith's "I Am Legend", and "Avatar."

"Frozen," Disney's animated take on Hans Christian Andersen's "The Snow Queen," fell to second, pulling in an impressive $22.2 million in its fourth week of release.

Tyler Perry's A Madea Christmas debuted third with a meager $16 million take.

Chris Hemsworth Kissed Wife, Not Natalie Portman, In 'Thor' Sequel

Natalie Portman & Chris Hemsworth
During a passionate kissing scene in "Thor: The Dark World," Chris Hemsworth's wife stood in for his co-star Natalie Portman, who was unable to film the moment.

Spanish actress Elsa Pataky put on a brown wig and was dolled up like Portman's character, Dr. Jane Foster, for the final scene of the movie, which features the doctor and Thor locking lips.

Portman explained to the New York Daily News: "It was for re-shoots, and he was working in Hong Kong and I couldn't get there because I was working on my own film. And so they put his wife in my wig and costume - that's why it was so passionat...

'Thor' Tops Box Office Again, 'Best Man Holiday' Makes Surprising Debut

November 18th, 2013 8:31am EST
Thor The Dark World
For the second weekend in a row, "Thor: The Dark World" topped the box office. The Marvel film made $38.4 million and was challenged by surprise contender "The Best Man Holiday," which debuted with $30.6 million.

"Thor" also earned $52.5 million internationally, bringing its worldwide total to $479.8 million. The film pulled in $86.1 million during its opening weekend.

Romantic comedy "Holiday," a sequel to the 1999 film "The Best Man," appealed to black audiences. The film centers on college friends who reunite over Christmas and realize how easy it is for long-forgotten rivalries and ro...

Box Office Predictions: 'Thor: The Dark World' Will Repeat At No. 1

November 15th, 2013 12:11pm EST
Thor: The Dark World
1) Thor: The Dark World- 40M Weekend, 145M Total

With no real direct competition, and good word of mouth, Thor is still “the movie to see” this weekend. It will likely dip in half, and still do far more than everything else in theatres. It will have to contend with the juggernaut that is The Hunger Games next week, so it’s good that it is mopping up as much money as it can right now.

2) The Best Man Holiday- 17M Weekend, 17M Total

As the weekends only new release, as well as being a holiday themed release, you’d think The Best Man Holiday would shoot to the top. Unfortunately, I’m not su...

Marvel and Disney's latest superhero flick, Thor: The Dark World, has dominated the weekend box office, pulling in $86.1 million.

While the sequel to 2011's "Thor" failed to break the $100 million mark like recent Marvel predecessors "Iron Man 3" and "The Avengers," the film opened abroad last week and has now amassed a whopping $327 million worldwide, putting it well over its $170 million budget.

Johnny Knoxville's Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa held strong at second, adding $11.3 million to its three-week total, while two of last week's debuts, "Free Birds" and "Last Vegas" flip-flopped ...

Thor: The Dark World
1) Thor: The Dark World- 75M Weekend, 75M Total

It’s almost an unprecedented move. A summer blockbuster is opening in November. The good news is that the Top 10 films of November (All Time) are almost entirely franchise films. However, most of those are Harry Potter or Twilight films. There really isn’t a superhero sequel in November, ever. That being said, five films have managed to gross over 100M on their opening November weekends. Thor has already been doing some great overseas business, and managed some good reviews. The original opened to 65M, and it’s safe to say the sequel will bea...

Review: 'Thor: The Dark World' - Sequel Is Vast Improvement Over Predecessor

November 7th, 2013 2:59pm EST
Thor Dark World
'Thor: The Dark World' did an utter 180 from the utterly bland, lowest common denominator pandering of the original 'Thor' (2011). It booted two of the previous writers while restricting third writer, Don Payne, to story concept. For the sequel, 'Thor: The Dark World' pulled from the combined talents of Marvel cartoon writer Christopher Yost and the 'Captain America' writing staff, Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely. I'm impressed by Marvel's decision to focus on story and less on explosions. Did they hit it out of the ballpark? Surprisingly, yes.

'Thor: The Dark World' Review: A Fun Ride With Dazzling Effects

'Thor: The Dark World' in my humble opinion is awesome. Of course if you watch our review video you'll see the other half of Two Jews on Film does not share my opinion.

In any case, for those of you who aren't comic book readers, here are the Cliffs Notes:

Thousands of years ago, a race of really scary looking beings known as the Dark Elves - led by the equally freaky looking Malekith (Christopher Eccleston) - tried to send the universe into darkness; using a powerful weapon known as the Aether.  Guess these dudes don't like the sun, hence their extremely pale skin.

Tom Hiddleston slipped into character as Thor: The Dark World villain Loki in a funny new spoof for the upcoming sequel.

The star sat with four children in a classroom, not unlike the recent AT&T "It's Not Complicated" ads, and asked them whether they think Thor or Loki is the better superhero.

The four kids all agree, with one of them speaking her mind and feeling the wrath of the Norse trickster.

The short aired Tuesday night on Comedy Central to promote the film, which hits theaters this friday.

All eyes were on Jaimie Alexander at the Los Angeles premiere of "Thor: The Dark World" on Monday. The actress wore an Azzaro Couture sheer paneled dress that left no room for undergarments.

The racy gown has been compared to the one Gwyneth Paltrow wore last April to the "Iron Man 3" premiere in which the actress confessed she needed a really close shave in order to pull off the look.

We can see why!

Alexander has spurned rumors that she'll be playing Wonder Woman in an upcoming Warner Bros. film. She recently addressed the gossip by telling Forbes: "Being in the comic book world, we kn...
