Gods of Thunder: The Best Thor Cosplay

Rule 63 Thor

The mantle of Thor has been taken up in many forms in the cosplay world, and we’ve gathered some of the best of them here. The classic version of Thor is certainly a go-to, as is Beta Ray Bill, an alien warrior who once gained the power of Mjolnir, and even before Jane Foster picked up the hammer, Thor was a popular character for female cosplayers. No matter the take, the epic magnificence of these cosplayers can’t be denied. These are the best Thor cosplays.

Natalie Portman Is Out, Tessa Thompson In, for ‘Thor: Ragnarok’

Warner Bros.
Warner Bros.

The Thor franchise never quite did right by Natalie Portman.

Sure, she had good chemistry with her superheroic co-star, Chris Hemsworth. But through two films, she never really got any true standout moments, and mostly just played an effective (if very intelligent) damsel in distress for the God of Thunder. She certainly never got the kind of scenes or dialogue that made other Marvel women like Gwyneth Paltrow’s Pepper Potts or Hayley Atwell’s Agent Carter such crucial and beloved parts of the wider Marvel Universe. If we’re being honest, the role of Dr. Jane Foster, at least as it was written, wasn’t worthy of her talents.

Tom Hiddleston’s Loki has been one of the most endearing and exciting characters in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Mark Ruffalo Calls ‘Thor: Ragnarok’ a ‘Road Movie’ Like ‘Midnight Run’

Marvel
Marvel

Mark Ruffalo loves to talk about Thor: Ragnarok.

He’s previously called it a “buddy picture” between his character, Bruce Banner, and Chris Hemsworth’s Thor. And he’s also previously said in the wake of Avengers: Age of Ultron, Banner is “removing himself from humanity altogether” to keep society safe from the Hulk. Now he’s chatting the movie up again, this time with the folks over at Empire, where he sort of expounds on the whole “buddy picture” concept by getting even more specific about the film’s look and feel.

America Divided: Does It Diminish Efforts At Diversity If Minority Heroes Have To Share A Name?

twocaptainsamerica

This week's announcement of a second Captain America title, Captain America: Steve Rogers, to run alongside the current Captain America: Sam Wilson series, is the latest example of a Marvel legacy hero getting to share a name with its originator. It's a trend that reflects two facets of Marvel's approach to major heroes. On the one hand, the publisher almost always gives big name legacy identities to characters that provide greater diversity than their predecessors, whether it's Cap, Spider-Man Thor, Hulk, Hawkeye, Wolverine, Nick Fury, Giant Man, or Ms Marvel. On the other hand, Marvel's big name heroes almost always come back.

The new Cap comic has plenty of promise; Steve Rogers is a popular and beloved character, and the team of artist Jesus Saiz and writer Nick Spencer should deliver great stories. Spencer is also the writer on the Sam Wilson title, so it's reassuring to know that he hasn't passed up Sam for Steve, and that Sam will still hold on to the iconic round shield. But Marvel's decision to make Sam Wilson the Captain America felt like a big deal. Is it still a big deal if he's just a Captain America?

Fantastic Five: Best Marvel Wonder Women

wonder women

If there’s one thing we’ve learned from our years on the Internet, it’s that there’s no aspect of comics that can’t be broken down and quantified in a single definitive list, preferably in amounts of five or ten. And since there’s no more definitive authority than ComicsAlliance, we’re taking it upon ourselves to compile Top Five lists of everything you could ever want to know about comics.

They say imitation is the most sincere form of flattery, and as some of our earlier episodes have shown, Marvel isn’t afraid to compliment their Distinguished Competition by homaging, or straight up copying, some of DC’s most popular characters. Since her introduction in 1942, Princess Diana, better known as Wonder Woman, has become without question the most well-known and influential superheroine in the world. We already showed you some of the best analogues Marvel made for the Man of Steel and the Dark Knight, and now it’s time to round out DC’s Trinity with the Amazing Amazon!
