Ranking The Avengers Movies Before CIVIL WAR


Captain America: Civil War is released in theaters today. This first film in “Phase 3” of the Marvel Cinematic Universe has a huge character roster.  Its spotlight scene in trailers and marketing show over a dozen Marvel characters on screen duking it out.  With Iron Man, Ant-Man, Spider-Man, and a full Avengers roster, Civil War feels less like a third Captain America movie, and more like the culmination of everything that has come before.

In preparation for this superhero “Monster Mash” here is a recap of the first two phases of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, ranked from worst to best!

Let’s Get Started!

Keep Arnie awake at The Ultimate Marvel Marathon!

We’ve long suspected that Marvelicious Toys and Now Playing Podcast host Arnie Carvalho gets less sleep than the kids at Westin Hills. So if anyone can survive The Ultimate Marvel Marathon – an 11-film binge of the entire MCU, from Iron Man to Age of Ultron – it’s Arnie.

He’ll take his seat at 6 p.m. Wednesday at Kansas City’s AMC Studio 28, and you can show your support by printing out your own Now Playing Podcast or Marvelicious Toys racing bib!

Follow Arnie on Twitter @TheArnieC and tweet your marathon pics using the hashtags #CrazyArnie and #StayAwakeArnie.

Now Playing Podcast’s Avengers: Age of Ultron review will be released Tuesday, May 5, after Arnie’s had time to recover. By the way, that marathon is sold out. So Arnie’s looking at 29-plus hours in that theater, without a lot of room to stretch. Pray for him.

This issue – what happens when Dr. Strange possesses the Punisher? Meet the Sorcerer EXTREME! Only Spider-Man, Wolverine, the Hulk and Ghost Rider of this land can track this terrible two-in-one down. And things are going to get messy! Then, what happens when M.O.D.O.K. recruits every M.O.D.O.K. ever from across Battleworld for his evil scheme. I’ll give you a hint – F.I.G.H.T.!

PREORDER ALERT: Thor and Thor Frog from Sideshow Collectibles


Today, with the opening of Captain America: The Winter Soldier in theaters, most Marvel fans have their minds on the First Avenger, but Sideshow Collectibles is bringing our attention back to the Mightiest Avenger with two new preorders of items for Thor!  (would this be a preor-thor?)


First, in Sideshow’s one-quarter scale Premium Format Figure line comes Modern Age Thor.  Based off Olivier Coipel’s designs for the thunder god in J. Michael Straczynski’s 2007-2009 run this figure looks as powerful as the character.  From the pre-release photos Sideshow has outdone themselves with the sculpting of Thor’s metallic mail.  A mixed-media piece, Thor has a fabric tunic with gold piping, but a sculpted cape guaranteed to accentuate the pose of Thor ready to strike!  With the winged helmet atop his head and Mjolnir in his hand, this statue is one of the best Sideshow has revealed to date.

And it certainly has the size and heft of Thor’s hammer.  The statue stands 21 inches tall and weighs 15 pounds!  Surely a centerpiece for any Thor fan!

As usual, Sideshow has also put up for pre-order the exclusive edition of this statue which comes with a swap-out hand allowing Thor to wield the mighty (and giant) Odinsword.  While not as iconic as the stone hammer, fans of Marvel’s Norse gods will surely snatch this up and, as always, drive the exclusive version’s secondary market cost high.

You can order the regular or exclusive Thor Premium Format Statue now at Sideshow Collectibles!

200360_press04And there is also another, more unique, Sideshow item up for pre-order:  the Thor Frog Diorama, with a design based off Walt Simonson’s 1980s comic where Loki turns Thor into a Frog.  This statue is much smaller, standing 6 inches tall, but has a really detailed sculpt and glossy paint application.  Sideshow has gone more amphibian with this statue than Gentle Giant did on their Throg mini-bust.  With Thor Frog sitting on a stump holding Frogjolnir, this is a cute accent piece that will certainly draw the eye of someone viewing your display.

The Thor Frog Diorama is $99, but if you buy the diorama and the Premium Format Thor you save $20, bringing the diorama down to a really cheap $79!

So hurry and order one or both Thor products today from Sideshow Collectibles!  And thank you for supporting our podcasts by using our links whenever ordering from Sideshow!

Also, some other Marvel Premium Format Figures still available from Sideshow

Thor: The Dark World hits DVD, Blu-Ray, and Digital Today

Thor: The Dark World comes out on Blu-ray today.

Benefiting from the “Avengers bump”, coming 18 months after that 1.5 billion grossing hit, Thor: The Dark World has become the third highest grossing film in the Avengers series.

But with the home video release fans must make a choice.  Continuing the unfortunate, but common, practice of splitting bonus features across multiple exclusive retailers fans have to choose which features are worth their dollars.

The Blu-ray is available in two editions, a single-disc 2-D version, or a multi-format 2 -disc version which includes the movie in 2-D, a 3-D Blu-ray copy of the film, and a code for a HD Digital download of the film through iTunes or UltraViolet.

Both Blu-ray releases have the same basic set of bonus features:  Extended and Deleted scenes (including an extended celebration scene, more with the dark elves, and Jane learning about the aether), gag reel, the 30 minute featurette “A Brothers’ Journey: Thor & Loki”, and a look at “Scoring Marvel’s Thor: The Dark World” with composer Brian Tyler.  Of most interest to Avengers film fans are likely the audio commentary with Director Alan Taylor, Producer Kevin Feige, and fan-favorite actor Tom Hiddleston, as well as an exclusive look at April’s Captain America: The Winter Soldier.  

Also of note is the film short called All Hail the King.  Since the release of Captain America: The First Avenger on Blu-ray Marvel has included short features that help tie the Marvel cinematic universe together.  With All Hail the King however Marvel has taken it to the next level, bringing back acclaimed, award-winning actor Sir Ben Kingsley to reprise his role as Trevor–the fake Mandarin from Iron Man 3.  Given that character’s polarizing response among Marvel’s film fans this follow up should be of great interest to see how Feige caps off the story of this comic relief actor/villain from last May’s Iron Man film.  The description of the short is:  After the events of Marvel’s Iron Man 3, Trevor Slattery is an infamous icon. He’s also locked up in a high-security prison. Luckily, his newfound profile has brought him celebrity and protection on the inside – and the actor has gladly agreed to an in-depth profile with a documentary filmmaker

But then brick and mortar retailers Best Buy, Target, and Walmart all have exclusive versions of Thor on Blu-ray, and digital sites iTunes and Amazon have exclusive features as well.

Best Buy has the 3D film in a gorgeous steelbook case.  The only difference here is packaging, but steelbook collectors will certainly want to check this version out.

Target has an exclusive Loki O-Sleeve over the Blu-ray.  Again, there is no new content on the discs (in the past Target has often included an extra disc with bonus features), but you do also get one month exclusive access to Marvel Unlimited, allowing you to read digital comics for free on your computer, phone, or tablet.

Walmart is the only brick and mortar to have a version with exclusive bonus features.  Through the VUDU service Walmart customers can view a bonus featurette “Loki: The God of Mischief.”  This includes a look at Hiddelston’s 2013 appearance at San Diego Comic-Con International where he appeared on stage in the full Loki costume.

Amazon also has a digital exclusive through their Amazon Instant Video service.  This bonus content looks at the visual effects work that went into making Thor: The Dark World.

Finally iTunes offers a bonus featurette looking at the comic book origins of the Dark Elves, Algrim the Kursed, and how these bad guys transitioned from the page to the big screen.

Fortunately if you want one of the physical discs you can likely get the iTunes bonus content as well.  On Star Trek Into Darkness and other Blu-ray films with iTunes digital copies the exclusive iTunes bonus content is able to be viewed as well.  I will update this article later with confirmation that this is still the case with Thor: The Dark World.

For those without a Blu-Ray player, a bare bones DVD release is also available.  Disney did not include a DVD with the multi-format Blu-ray release forcing those without a Blu-ray player to buy either an additional version or a version with no bonus features.  Cover variation collectors be aware – the DVD version has a red stripe down the spine, the Blu-Ray version has a blue stripe.

Sideshow Puts Hot Toys Thor: The Dark World Loki Figure Up For Preorder

Loki Thor Dark World Hot Toys Landscape

I bring glad tidings….

Loki Thor Dark World Hot ToysWhen Thor: The Dark World was released in November, 2013 the Hot Toys tie-ins were notably quiet.  For both The Avengers and Iron Man 3 Sideshow Collectibles had a large number of Hot Toys figures up for pre-order before the movies were even released, but Thor had only two:  the regular Thor sixth-scale figure (still available for pre-order) and the Sideshow Exclusive Thor in Asgardian Light Armor (the pre-orders are sold out but there are spots available on Sideshow’s Wait List).  But long rumored were other figures, and an obvious one was fan-favorite villain Loki.

Today that rumor became reality when Sidehow released for pre-order their new Thor: The Dark World Loki sixth scale figure.

Loki stands about 12-inches tall and comes with an incredibly detailed black, green, gold and red suit as ween in the film.  A combination of materials gives this a leather-like sheen.

The facial likeness shows a menacing Tom Hiddleston.  The facial expression is grim, and makes the face look a little less like the actor than the (long sold out) Avengers movie Loki, but this may also be the result of the pre-release photos of the prototype.

Loki comes with 6 interchangeable hands in a variety of poses, his trademark dagger, plus manacles for his wrists and ankles so you can recreate the scene in which he is sentenced for his treason.

Additionally there is an exclusive edition of this figure, available only through Sideshow Collectibles, that comes with the Aether Accessory from the movie!

All Hot Toys based on Marvel movies sell out in time, and with Loki being such a fan favorite I suspect he may sell out even before his brother, even though Thor had a 4 month head start!  So don’t delay, flex pay is available, get your order in now at Sideshow’s site!
