Back in the comic book day, The House of Ideas teamed The Thing with a guest superhero star of the month for Marvel-Two-in-One. That series’ consistent match-up of four-color brawn has now been musically equaled in the space of one year by Brian Tyler, who follows up his entry into Marvel’s cinematic universe for IRON MAN 3 with even more powerfully potent results in THOR: THE DARK WORLD. But while it might not necessarily be an even match comparing a playboy in a souped-up suit of armor with an alien-Norse demigod, the evil elf-sponsored end of the universe versus an […]Read On »

Walt Disney Studios held the U.S. Premiere of MARVEL’S THOR: THE DARK WORLD not so long ago. I’m sorry Assignment X readers that this is late going up, but I had computer problems, which is now fixed, so I hope you still enjoy seeing everything. Unfortunately, Nathan Fillion walked half of the carpet, then went and posed with Zachary Levi and Tom Hiddleston and decided not to walk the rest of the carpet and wouldn’t stop no matter how loud everyone yelled Nathan. Of course, I was at the end where he didn’t pose. The premiere was held at the […]Read On »

Exclusive Interview: THE AVENGERS villain Tom Hiddleston on Loki’s God Complex and THOR 2

EDITOR’S NOTE: There have been some questions about one of the quotes in this interview. We have checked the interview tape and it turns out we missed an “if.” We have corrected the quote.  Where there are superheroes, there must be a supervillain. In writer/director Joss Whedon’s film THE AVENGERS, that supervillain is Loki, an extraterrestrial played by Tom Hiddleston, who tries to enslave the Earth with the help of a mysterious but extremely violent alien race. Hiddleston, who hails from London, England, originated the role of the adopted brother of the mighty Thor, played by Chris Hemsworth, in 2011’s THOR. […]Read On »
