Screen Junkies Show: Marvel's Misfires

With the release of 'Thor: The Dark World', we're taking a look back at some of the worst Marvel movies. Marvel hasn't always pumped out the quality films (and Thor) that we've come to expect from them nowadays. So, with the release of Thor: The Dark World, we're taking a look back at some of the worst, most-Hasselhoffy Marvel movies.

Honest Trailers: 'Thor'

For God's sake, this film is terrible. Easily the worst of Marvel Phase One, yet still a beloved by many monster hit for some reason, Thor is the film that proved to Marvel that we'll watch anything. So, in advance of Thor: The Dark World, see where it all began with this silly fish out of water tale that can't even make fighting a giant robot cool. Comparing this film against The Avengers proves the character is much better in a group setting where he hardly talks. Just throw the hammer, handsome.


Oh, Hai 'Thor: The Dark World' Trailer

In a controversial move, Marvel taps Tommy Wiseau to replace Tom Hiddleston in the highly-anticipated sequel. Poor Loki. Not only is he locked away in the least ornate of Asgard's prisons for eternity, but his bosses at the bank took his ideas and put them into practice without giving him a promotion. The bank saves money, and they are using him, and he is the fool. Also, his adopted brother Thor wants to team up and be frenemies in order to save Jane Foster. It seems that Thor's bonehead idea of warping her to a dark, mystical battlefield has put her life in the type of peril that can't be easily solved by throwing a hammer around. He's really got to broaden his horizons.


Marvel Takes A Look Back At How Awesome Their Films Have Been

Excelsior! With Guardians of the Galaxy breaking box office numbers as I type this and The Avengers: Age of Ultron set to dominate next summer, Marvel has decided to take a moment to breathe, step back, and have a good look at how they got to a film about a machine-gunnin' raccoon. Posted to their official YouTube page, this recap covers the major events of Phase One and Phase Two (so far) and it cuts together so well. Marvel made history by creating so many intricate connections between their diverse array of films as that's pointed out here. The video covers everything from Iron Man to Guardians of the Galaxy (and even includes footage from Iron Man 2 and The Incredible Hulk because we can't ignore that those happened) ending on a shot of formerly-teased villain Thanos resting upon his floating throne of rock. Excelsior!


'Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.' Wacky Neighbor Nick Fury Swung By For A Visit

He wasn't there to borrow sugar. Agent's of S.H.I.E.L.D. is continuing to find its footing with last night's good but not great episode. The highlight of which was Samuel L. Jackson popping by to remind everyone he likes to shout. Though this episode was an improvement upon the pilot, it didn't really offer much more. The characters are still unlikable and the production value still screams cheap right down to Nick Fury's fake-ass goatee. If Marvel can make New York looked like it's been invaded by aliens through an intergalactic portal, don't you think they should be able to handle facial hair? Anyway, fun cameo.


Thor Gets His Asgard Tasered In New Clip

Thor has fought monsters, mutants and supervillains. In this clip, we see what kind of incredible firepower it takes to bring down the Thunder God... namely, a taser. Thor' target='_blank'>Thor-2' target='_blank'>Thor-smuggles-in-blurry-images-from-asgard/">Thor has fought monsters, mutants and supervillains. In this clip, we see what kind of incredible firepower it takes to bring down this demi-god... namely, a taser. A chick with a taser. This clip from Kenneth Branagh's Thor shows the Marvel hero (played by Chris Hemsworth) getting his butt kicked easily after landing on Earth and making demands. I lol'd. Maybe it undercuts the seriousness of his godhood, but I'm not fond of this plague of boring, hyper serious posters for the film anyway. Nice to know even the gods have a sense of humor. Of course, as I'm sure the filmmakers are aware, a little of this goes a long way. I'm not excited to see Thor crush his foot with his hammer and hop around squealing "ouch," like something out of a Tim Allen movie. Thor descends into theaters April 27th, along with Natalie Portman and Anthony Hopkins.


'The Avengers' Try To Lift Thor's Hammer In Extended Trailer

You got Hammy Time! A teaser for Avengers: Age of Ultron premiered last week and broke the record for most views previously held by the highly-anticipated people fucking epic, Fifty Shades of Grey. Because they refuse to not be part of the daily conversation, Marvel released this extended trailer during last night's episode of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.. While similar to scenes we were shown last week, the extended look also treats us to a scene of the Avengers trying to lift Thor's hammer, Mjölnir. Alas, only Thor proves virtuous enough which must be kind of a bitch for him having to carry that thing around all the time.


New Clip Of Thor Getting His Ass Kicked Reveals Hawkeye

It takes Thor a surprisingly long time to knock out a security guard. Thor' target='_blank'>Thor-2' target='_blank'>Thor-smuggles-in-blurry-images-from-asgard/" target="_blank">Thor is supposed to be a demi-god with amazing super strength, right? In the last clip I saw Thor (Chris Hemsworth) was taken out by a taser gun. In the new clip above, he struggles for a really long to time to knock out a security guard. A security guard. If it takes him this long to knock out hired muscle making $9/hr, how is he supposed to fight monsters and stuff? Then, in a strange out-of-nowhere shot, it's a Hawkeye cameo. There he is, hanging out in a metal airlift in the pouring rain. I'd say lightning would be a problem, especially cause Thor can summon lightning as one of his powers. However, judging by this Thor's strength and survival skills, I think that won't be an issue. Thor, directed by Kenneth Branagh, struggles in the mud and into theaters May 6th. (IGN)
