Here's what Michael B. Jordan has to say about a Thanos-Killmonger fight

Michael B. Jordan’s time in the Marvel Cinematic Universe is probably over, barring some flashback scenes in the Black Panther sequel or a weird side effect of the snap heard ’round existence at the end of Avengers: Infinity War. But his raw and powerful performance as Erik Killmonger (a.k.a N’Jadaka) earned him lots…

Yes, Thanos also killed half of all puppies and kittens in Avengers: Infinity War

Multiple characters in Avengers: Infinity War state that intergalactic warlord Thanos’ ultimate goal is to restore balance to the universe by wiping out half of all life, and by the end, he finally makes it happen thanks to the limitless power of the Infinity Gauntlet. The movie then showed the devastating aftermath…

Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. gets properly apocalyptic and addresses Infinity War's Thanos

There are a lot of contentious debates between people who aren’t really listening to each other in “The One Who Will Save Us All.” How to save the world, how to do the right thing...even whether or not to high five gets discussed. But these people are in their own heads—so much so, two of them come to blows.

Demi Adejuyigbe gifts Thanos with the braggy rap theme Infinity War so obviously lacked

We’re on-the-record fans here of screenwriter and comedian Demi Adejuyigbe, who’s previously graced the pages of Great Job, Internet with a number of subversively excellent comedy songs, ranging from an Animaniacs-styled takedown of the Trump administration’s constant staffing woes, to an unofficially awesome Lando rap

Josh Brolin suggests Thanos' genocide fetish is just a product of a lousy upbringing

It’s a generally understood truism of storytelling that every villain is a hero of their own tale. Marvel’s films have certainly benefited from this lesson; characters like The Avengers’ Loki and Black Panther’s Killmonger have both thrived mightily from the sympathy with which their characters’ agendas are treated in…

Thanos’ original birth name is much more suited to a ’60s crooner

Thanos has been a malevolent force in Marvel comics for almost 45 years, and he’s also (currently) the biggest threat in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. This is a guy so powerful, he’s poised to take on the Avengers for the fun of it in Infinity War. His comics backstory includes being born with the Deviants gene and…

Screw the gauntlet, people want to know where Thanos' helmet is

Avengers: Too Many Characters (just kidding!) dropped its first trailer this morning, and the biggest takeaway (aside from Star-Lord’s little ’stache) has to be the wreckage of ultra-villain Thanos, who we’ve seen do little else aside from float through space for three dozen movies now. Though his size and knockout…

Let’s try to figure out what happened in that secret Infinity War trailer nobody will let us see

Look, we get it: internet movie trailer culture is a problem for big film studios, since they’d presumably like to maintain at least a little bit of mystery around their high-profile films. Not to mention rewarding fans who wait in line—sometimes extremely long lines—in order to get into panels at events like Disney’s…

Roxane Gay’s Black Panther prequel gives women a story in the World Of Wakanda

Wakanda is experiencing a well deserved resurgence in interest. Between excitement for the Black Panther movie and the good press around Ta-Nehisi Coates and Brian Stelfreeze’s comic, it’s a smart move for Marvel to expand the franchise. It’s even smarter to recruit Roxane Gay to helm a new title in keeping with…

This Age Of Ultron featurette explains the Infinity Stones better than the movies

It would be entirely possible for a fairly dedicated fan of the Marvel Cinematic Universe to still be confused about the six Infinity Stones and the Infinity Gauntlet they fit into. After all, Marvel has paid far more attention to Chris Hemsworth’s abs than it has to these six MacGuffins and their larger MacGuffin…
