Calling all girls ages 15-18 in grades 10th-12th! I’m excited to share all about the Thor Ragnarok Superpower of STEM Challenge! Marvel Studios is, once again, encouraging young girls to explore the power of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math). Channel your inner superpowers of STEM for good and you could win a trip to the premiere of Thor: Ragnarok and a mentorship with Disney Imagineering!
This program, supported by American Association for the Advancement of Science, Broadcom MASTERS, and Society for Science & the Public is looking for you girls to use your superpower of STEM to create an original Do-It-Yourself project that can be replicated by others.
Five finalists will be selected to come to Los Angeles and present their projects to a panel of experts. They will also get the chance to attend the Red Carpet Premiere of Thor: Ragnarok, get $500 deposited into a high-yield savings account from Synchrony Bank, a tour of the Walt Disney Studios, and more!
One grand-prize winner (selected from the five finalists) will get the chance to be mentored by Disney Imagineering. There she will build her STEM story, creating a video that will be available to students, teachers and families worldwide on the American Association for the Advancement of Science education resource website ScienceNetLinks.com. Plus she will have the opportunity to demonstrate her project live on Good Morning America!
Could someone get me an ID that says I’m 18 again? This sounds like an amazing opportunity!
The contest runs August 23, 2017, through September 23, 2017. For the official rules, application, and more information visit Marvel Studios STEM Challenge.
Thor finds himself without his hammer and imprisoned far from Asgard. He needs to join forces with the Incredible Hulk, Valkyrie, and Loki to try to save Asgard from Hela. And also prevent her from unleashing Ragnarok, the end of Asgardian civilization. Along the way he has to fight the Hulk in a gladiators’ ring, probably have a sibling heart-to-heart with Loki, and take on some big, ferocious mythological baddies. I have chills. Is it November yet?
I’ve been geeking out over the new Thor movie ever since I first saw the teaser trailer. Want to know what has me so excited for the latest Thor? Just check out my 10 Reason To Geek Our Over Thor Ragnarok!
Thor Ragnarok is in theaters November 3rd 2017!!
Ant-Man is one of my favorites in the MCU. I loved how the film was visually different, and the story, especially as told by Luis, was fun and heartwarming. I’m thrilled to share some Ant-Man and The Wasp production news. The BIG news of course is production has started!
We also know that all of our favorites are in the film. Paul Rudd, Evangeline Lilly, Michael Peña and Michael Douglas are back in their starring roles. Alongside Bobby Cannavale, Judy Greer, Abby Ryder Fortson, Tip “T.I.” Harris, and David Dastmalchian who will also reprise their roles.
Newbies to the world of Ant-Man and The Wasp include Michelle Pfeiffer, Laurence Fishburne, Hannah John-Kamen, Walton Goggins, and Randall Park. I would love to see Laurence Fishburne eventually share screen time with Samuel L. Jackson’s Nick Fury in the future!
After the events in Captain America: Civil War, Scott is trying to deal with both being a Super Hero and a dad. As if parenthood isn’t enough of a struggle, Hope and her father Dr. Hank Pym come to him with an urgent new mission. This time when Scott puts on the suit, he is fighting alongside The Wasp. They must learn to work together to uncover the secrets from their past.
ANT-MAN and THE WASP will be in theaters July 6, 2018!
Are you ready for February 16th 2018? Black Panther, who showed up in the MCU during Captain America Civil War, is back with his own movie. I’ve got the latest Black Panther updates including the epic teaser and the official poster reveal from SDCC!
Black Panther picks up after Civil War, as T’Challa returns home to Wakanda to take his rightful place as king. He quickly learns that not everyone in his country is backing him as king.
Shifts in leadership are never easy, and T’Challa is facing enemies both abroad and at home.
He must rally his allies and release the full power of Black Panther to defeat his foes and secure the safety of his people.
Black Panther is force to reckoned with and not only that, his people are warriors too. Just look The Dora Milaje, the all female special forces/secret service. Remember Ayo in Civil War? She was daring Black Widow to try something. I don’t know about you, but I would not be trying to pull something on T’Challa with these three standing watch.
The costumes, sets, tech, cast, and all the action are shaping Black Panther up to be an epic MCU release. I know I can’t wait to see T’Challa back in action.
Black Panther is in theatres everywhere on February 16, 2018!
The official trailer for Thor Ragnarok dropped at SDCC over the weekend and it gave me chills. Thor, Hulk, Loki, Valkyrie, Hela, mythological baddies, eek! It had me wishing I could call Dr. Strange so I could jump ahead in time, see it, then jump back so I can still enjoy summer. This Marvel fangirl is breaking down the 10 reasons to geek out over Thor Ragnarok, because I can seriously not stop geeking out.
I love the nod to the comic book origins in this one. Thor might have lost his luscious locks, but his helmet is classic. Along with Loki’s helmet and Hela’s over-the-top headdress.
Thor and Bruce Banner/Hulk
Forget the science bros, I am loving these two together.
Did I win? No I won, easily. That doesn’t sound right. Well, it’s true.
Hulk like fire, Thor like water.
I love Loki as much as the next fangirl, but I think Hela might take the crown of the most intriguing villain in the MCU. Cate Blanchett is crushing it as a super-villain, goddess of death. Hela, like Loki, is going to be one of those villains we love and hate.
The valkyrie fight scene alone will blow your mind. Fierce warriors fighting on winged horses? Shut up and take all my money.
Our favorite green, rage monster is back with a new haircut and more lines. What’s not to love? Not to mention we see Hulk take on both Fenris Wolf and Surtur, with no hesitation. Puny mythological baddies.
Fenris Wolf and Surtur
Speaking of Fenris Wolf and Surtur… excuse me while my nerd is showing. One of the reasons I adore Thor is the mythology that surrounds him. Fenris Wolf AND the fire giant Surtur in the same movie?! Someone hold me.
In the myths, Fenris Wolf is bound until Ragnarok, where he will break free and battle Odin, eventually devouring him. He’s Loki’s son and brother to Hel aka Hela. In the comics he has a similar story, with the ability to also shape-shift, along with super-human strength, smarts, speed, agility, you get the idea. Likewise, the fire giant Surtur, also comes out at Ragnarok leading his kind against the gods. On the comic side of his story, he has powers equal to Odin and is not to be messed with.
Because Loki. Everyones favorite god of mischief is back and is joining forces with Thor. They have some of the best exchanges in the MCU, gotta love that sibling banter.
If you have been keeping track, we are missing 1 of the Infinity Stones, the Soul Stone, going into Avengers Infinity War. And I think Hela has it. Did you see how she wipes out Asgard pretty easily? That definitely looks infinity stone-ish to me.
Hulk, Thor, Valkyrie, and Loki. They are ready to kick butt, take names, and look good doing it.
We hear Hela taunting Thor: What were you the god of again? She says all smug. Then it cuts, and we see lightning cracking across the sky, thunder booms, and Thor is there eyes glowing, lightning coursing through his body. He seems to be channeling the power of Mjolnir without the actual hammer. My goosebumps have goosebumps.
Bottom line: if the movie is as freaking awesome as the trailer, this is set to be the best Thor and one of the best MCU films out there.
Thor: Ragnarok is in theaters November 3rd!
