Confirmed: ‘Thor: Ragnarok’ Is Heading To ‘Planet Hulk’ [SDCC 2016]


Thor: Ragnarok is set to be one heck of a film based on the information revealed so far, with a killer cast including Tessa Thompson as Valkyrie, Cate Blanchett as Hela, and Jeff Goldblum as The Grandmaster. We've already heard from Hulk actor Mark Ruffalo that the film is going to be a cosmic buddy movie between Thor and The Hulk, and today at San Diego Comic Con we received more information about what that might mean as Marvel unveiled a very familiar set of armor for the Jade Giant.

In a post on Twitter, Marvel's Agent M unveiled the Gladiator Hulk armor made famous in Greg Pak and Carlo Pagulayan's insta-classic "Planet Hulk" storyline. In the original story, The Illuminati (Iron Man, Mister Fantastic, Black Bolt and Doctor Strange) decided to send The Hulk off to space where he could live out his days on an idyllic and uninhibited planet.

Ghost Rider Robbie Reyes, while Marvel TV bosses suggest that Doctor Strange will open up the MCU to a bit more magical thinking.

Animated ‘Killing Joke’ Changes the Nature of Batman and Batgirl’s Relationship [SDCC 2016]


Thanks to leaks coming out of San Diego Comic Con, we now know more than we wanted to know about the upcoming The Killing Joke animated movie. The movie was much discussed when it was first announced due to its planned R rating. Everyone assumed this rating was to allow for the level of violence found in the original comic, and specifically the Joker's sexual assault of Barbara Gordon. But now we've learned that the movie has made considerable changes from the comic that may also contribute to that rating. Spoilers follow.

Sonic Is Ready To Party In ‘Sonic The Hedgehog’ #284, Assuming He Lives That Long [Preview]

Sonic the Hedgehog #284, Archie Comics

I've been pretty up front about the fact that I know very little about the world of Sonic the Hedgehog, but I do know that it can be pretty shockingly complicated. I know, for instance, that Sonic likes to run fast and is always ready to party, but when it comes to figuring out how the world he lives in was shattered by a global cataclysm, or why he's hanging out with cyborgs and a sentient AI who takes the form of a holographic lynx, I'm a little more hazy.

But if you're in the same boat, good news. The next issue of Archie's long-running Sonic the Hedgehog starts off with a series of quick captions to explain everything --- and a More Than Meets The Eye/Arrested Development party to celebrate something that they actually have not accomplished yet. But will the answers themselves become more questions? Decide for yourself with the preview below!
