Have you seen Thor: Ragnarok yet?  The film stars Chris Hemsworth, Cate Blanchett as the new villain Hela, Mark Ruffalo returns as the Incredible Hulk, and Tom Hiddleston as fan-favorite trickster, Loki.  It's already making a splash.  What did you think?  I joined Thomas Olsen from Superhero Moviecast to discuss the threequel, how it holds up in comparison to the other Thor movies, as well as the rest of the MCU.  You can check it out here.

Female Superheroes: Marvel vs. DC

It’s hard to believe, but it’s been about 10 years since Disney launched the Marvel Cinematic Universe with the first Iron Man movie.  So many great films have followed, and still so many more to come.  It’s not hard to see why the MCU has had such commercial and critical success, with good characters in their respective films and in the culmination of the Avengers series.  Up until very recently, the MCU has dominated the superhero movie industry with little-to-no exception.  That is, until the DCEU got its head out of it’s *ahem* butt, and made the masterpiece that is Wonder Woman.  (For more specific thoughts on Wonder Woman, you can read my short review here, and check out the podcast I contributed to for more lengthy analysis here)
