Thor doesn’t go anywhere without his famous hammer Mjolnir. But did you know the Mjolnir seen in Thor: The Dark World is different than the ones in Thor and The Avengers? It’s 10 percent larger than the first Mjolnir, and it’s design incorporates elements from Thor’s new costume in The Dark World. That’s just one of the Asgardian facts featured in the latest episode of You Think You Know Movies!

In Cinemautopsy, we look back at a recent, high-profile failure and ask a simple question: What the hell happened? In this installment... the comic that launched Marvel Comics. A cast of beloved up-and-comers. One of the hottest young directors in Hollywood. A bold attempt to reinvent the superhero genre. What could possibly go wrong?
Here’s some news that’ll make you raise an eyebrow: An interesting rumor regarding Deadpool 2 began circulating over the weekend, specifically regarding the casting of Cable, the villainous character teased in the Deadpool post-credits scene. Stephen Lang, Dolph Lundgren and Ron Perlman have all tossed their hat in the ring for the part, but if this new report is true, then Fox may be taking a slightly different approach to the character.
While many fans of the Thor movies gravitate towards the charismatic villainy of Tom Hiddleston — and for very good reason — I’ve always secretly had a thing for Lady Sif and the Warriors Three. Thor’s faithful allies have never gotten a tremendous amount of screen time, but they have always been there when things get a little out of hand, ready to throw down against frost demons, alien armies, and disloyal Asgardians alike.
It feels a little wrong to just keep talking about upcoming Dwayne Johnson movies as if he isn’t at war with Vin Diesel over the future of the Fast and the Furious franchise. What if they never reconcile? What if this is the beef that finally tears the Toretto family apart? Then again, I’d like to think that neither Johnson nor Diesel would want us to put our lives on hold while we’re worrying about them. Life must go on, you know?
When I was a kid, it seemed like I was always getting dragged into fights with my parents that my younger brother would start. He would say something rude to my parents, things would escalate, and before I knew it, my mom was waving her arms in the air and shouting something about how “you two” were always misbehaving or getting into trouble. Meanwhile, I’m sitting in the corner reading a Star Wars novel and wondering just how the heck I got involved in this fight to begin with.
Suicide Squad has only been in theaters for a week, but it’s already become a flashpoint for fan discussion. (And yes, that was a DC pun, thank you very much.) Does the movie’s plot make sense? Does it matter? How much of David Ayer’s original vision wound up in the theatrical cut? And maybe the most contentious debate of all: Is the movie better than Warner Bros.’ previous entry in the DC Extended Universe, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice?
Just yesterday, Warner Bros. revealed a new heavy metal logo for Justice League, which — as I pointed out — looked like exactly the sort of thing that Jason Momoa’s Aquaman could get behind. Is Ben Affleck’s Batman recruiting a team of superheroes, or assembling a heavy metal supergroup? Thanks to this new set photo, we have an answer.
Welcome to Cast Party, the feature that imagines a world with even more live action comic book adaptations than we currently have, and comes up with arguably the best casting suggestions you’re ever going to find for the movies and shows we wish could exist.
This week I'm looking at one of my favorite comics of the last year, Zodiac Starforce, which was written by Kevin Panetta with art by Paulina Ganucheau.
In case you were confused about the tone of the DC movie universe, this new Justice League logo should make things perfectly clear: This isn’t your kid’s bright and shiny Marvel Cinematic Universe. Oh, no. This is a heavy metal comic book world where superheroes straight-up SHRED. Can you hear that? It’s the sound of a guitar wailing in the distance, heralding the arrival of heroes in need of a stiff drink and a bar fight.
