    Thor without his hammer? That can't end well, can it? Chris Hemsworth's superhero is having a seriously bad day in a new teaser trailer for "Thor: Ragnarok." He's stuck on the other side of the universe while a big problem brews back home in Asgard: New baddie-on-the-block Hela, played by Cate Blanchett, is doing her best to bring about Ragnarok — see what they're doing here? — the destruction of Asgardian civilization.

    Brad Thor dropped a major bomb-shell on Glenn’s radio program Thursday, saying he’s committed to running for president of the United States. Glenn introduced his friend by reminding listeners about the author’s courage in the face of controversy. “I believe Brad is one of the most courageous people out there. Because — he is in business. You’re selling a book. And what you said — I shouldn’t say what you said — because what you said was not controversial,” Glenn said. Some may recall the flak Glenn received following Thor’s fiery remarks about Donald Trump in his previous interview on...

    Tuesday on Fox News Channel’s “The O’Reilly Factor,” during a segment with network contributor Karl Rove, host Bill O’Reilly discussed remarks made author Brad Thor on Glenn Beck’s radio program last week, which O’Reilly described as Thor talking about a “possible assassination” and Beck’s suspension from SiriusXM announced earlier today. Both O’Reilly and Rove criticized the remarks, with O’Reilly adding “you can’t do that” because it “incites violence.”

    SiriusXM hosts Stephen K. Bannon and David Webb announced Tuesday that the radio network has suspended broadcast of Glenn Beck’s radio program following controversial comments author Brad Thor made about presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump. “Comments recently made by a guest on the independently produced Glenn Beck Program, in our judgement, may be reasonably construed by some to have been advocating harm against an individual currently running for office, which we cannot and will not condone,” SiriusXM said in a statement. The network has suspended Beck’s program for the coming week and is “evaluating” its place in their lineup moving...

    Today on Glenn Beck’s show, author Brad Thor advocated the assassination of Donald Trump: "I am about to suggest something very bad…. With the feckless, spineless Congress we have, who will stand in the way of Donald Trump overstepping his constitutional authority as President? If Congress won’t remove him from office, what patriot will step up and do that? … I don’t think there is a legal means available. I think it will be a terrible, terrible position the American people will be in to get Trump out of office, because you won’t be able to do it through Congress.”...
  • AUDIO: Glenn Beck, Brad Thor discuss a ‘patriot’ taking out Donald Trump

    Talk radio host Glenn Beck and best-selling author Brad Thor believe the only way to get a President Trump out of office is for a “patriot” to apparently kill him. Appearing on Beck’s radio program this morning, Thor said: I am about to suggest something very bad. It is a hypothetical I am going to ask as a thriller writer. With the feckless, spineless Congress we have, who will stand in the way of Donald Trump overstepping his constitutional authority as President? If Congress won’t remove him from office, what patriot will step up and do that if, if, he...

    Deadline brings word that Creed star Tessa Thompson is set to join Thor: Ragnarok as both a female hero in the film and Chris Hemsworth’s love interest. You might be thinking that Thor already has a love interest in the MCU in Natalie Portman’s Dr. Jane Foster, but THR takes it a step further and reveals Portman will not be returning for the film. Ironically, Thompson is set to star in the Alex Garland film Annihilation with Portman before starring in the Marvel film. Thompson is also a series regular on HBO’s upcoming Westworld with the Allfather himself, Anthony Hopkins....

    A former Hollywood stunt man now living in the Netherlands launched his greatest project to date Tuesday: a 45-foot replica Viking ship made of millions of wooden ice cream sticks and more than a ton of glue. Rob McDonald named the ship the "Mjollnir" after the hammer of the mythic Norse god of thunder, Thor. After the 13 ton boat was lifted into the water by crane, "Captain Rob," as he is known, stood calmly on the stern as a team of volunteers rowed the apparently sturdy vessel ... "I have a dream to show children they can do anything,"...

    Like thunder, the news reverberated far and wide when Marvel Comics released it in July, the same week the Disney-owned comics publisher announced a black Captain America: Thor, formerly the brawny, bearded god of thunder, would now be a woman. The change has left many thunderstruck since the new character was unveiled on "The View." "Thor is a chick," Tucker Carlson declared disapprovingly Sept. 21 on "Fox News Sunday."

    National Report ^ | July 19, 2014 | Jim Geraghty
    JULY 19, 2014 A Thor Subject The comics industry grapples with attracting women readers. By Jim Geraghty The surprises came in a trio: First, Marvel Comics announced that the character of Thor, based upon the Norse God of Thunder, would become a woman. The second surprise was the venue in which the switch was announced — ABC’s feminine-minded daytime talk show The View — but perhaps that was predictable, considering that Marvel and ABC Television are both owned by Disney. But the third, and biggest, surprise is that anyone thought this was a good idea. “This is not She-Thor,” senior...

    To cleanse the palate. He’s got long blonde hair, wears an elaborate costume, and is forever swinging around a large phallic totem. If it was a guitar, I’d have assumed he’s in a hair-metal band and left it at that. But a hammer? The man’s overcompensating. He’s got a secret. A big one, as it turns out. Who’s up for a 37-issue series in which Thor quietly contemplates how much harder life is as a woman? This October, Marvel Comics evolves once again in one of the most shocking and exciting changes ever to shake one of the “big three”...

    No, your eyes do not deceive you and thankfully this is no joke — Marvel has given an upgrade to one of its biggest superheroes. And by that we mean: there’s a new superlady in town and she’s wielding the hammer of Thor! As announced on “The View,” and confirmed by Marvel, a new comic written by Jason Aaron, with art by Russell Dauterman will launch ongoing this Fall, after the original God of Thunder loses the ability to wield his signature hammer. Thor doesn’t just look like a lady with those long and luscious Norse locks of his —...

    The role was initially supposed to go to Mads Mikkelsen, but with the Danish star unavailable thanks to his leading role on TV's Hannibal, word is now out that Christopher Eccleston has been tapped to take on the part of Malekith The Accursed in the upcoming Thor 2. The leader of the Dark Elves of Svartalfheim, Malekith is one of Thor's major opponents in the comic books and it would appear the part is in good hands with Eccleston. Though most known recently for his stint as Doctor Who, Eccelston has a long, long list of stellar performances in intense...

    I went to see the Thor movie yesterday with my family and I was surprised by how much I enjoyed it. Thor was one of the more original superheroes devised by Marvel in the Sixties. Doctor Donald Blake, on a vacation in Norway, stumbles into a cave where he finds Mjolnir, Thor’s hammer, disguised as a walking stick. Striking it he is transformed into Thor, god of Thunder. As Thor, Blake finds that he has super strength, can fly by flinging Mjolnir and hanging on, that Mjolnir is close to indestructible and will return to Thor after he throws it,...
