However, even though Marvel movies have always been well-received and have shattered box office records time and again, these superhero flicks have somewhat lacked in the antagonist department.

So when they needed us, we could fight the battles that they never could.” In many ways, the opening line in the new trailer for Avengers: Infinity War pretty much sums up everything the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) has been building towards up till now.

Is ‘Thor: Ragnarok’ the weirdest Marvel offering to date?

It’s hammer time, or not! Considering we just had Hela aka the Goddess of Death stopping Thor’s trusty weapon Mjolnir mid-flight and then shattering it to pieces. Okay, now this might sound a little confusing to a whole lot of you out there but by surprise-dropping the first teaser trailer for Thor: Ragnarok , Marvel Studios has caught a vast majority including myself off-guard. So forgive me if I am getting a little ahead of myself in terms of excitement, but boy, this first trailer of Norse God of Thunder’s third solo adventure  has me all psyched up. Following 2011’s Thor and 2013’s Thor: The Dark World, Thor: ...
