MCU News: Thor Character In Infinity War? Plus Chadwick Boseman Trains For Black Panther

Phase 3 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe is stepping up its game as a raft of characters are crossed over from standalone installments into one big party for the 2018 ensemble. Avengers: Infinity War will showcase the best of the regular superheroes from Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, Doctor Strange and co., joined by the jokers from Guardians of the Galaxy.

But it is a supporting player in the form of Tessa Thompson's Valkyrie that might be coming aboard as she plays the character in Chris Hemsworth's third title Thor: Ragnarok. Infinity War so happens to be shooting on location in Scotland right now and spotted about town in Edinburgh would be Thompson as a fan stopped by for a selfie with the actress.


Chad Does The Boseman Dance For Upcoming Fight Sequences

Sometimes it is not the most glamorous of looks when a buff action star is rehearsing his fighting moves with a trained assistant in the cold light of day. This is what Black Panther star Chadwick Boseman has showcased this week on social media, going through the drills of the combat to make it appear akin to a dance routine that has to be perfected when the cameras roll.

From his perspective though, the physicality is all about getting the body and mind ready for the main event.

“The purpose of training is to tighten up the slack, toughen the body, and polish the spirit.'" quotes Boseman from Morihei Ueshiba. "#blackpanther #bts #fma#sanucesryu 📷: @realaddison 👊🏾: @marresecrump."

Star-Lord's Genre Is Mom-Rock, Nothing Heavy Metal on his Playlist: Gunn

Music is a greater feature of Guardians of the Galaxy than almost any other movie franchise to date, bringing back a string of classical 60s, 70s and 80s hits that had long been left to a bygone era. As Guardians of the Galaxy Awesome Mix Vol. 2 boasts the likes of Fleetwood Mac, Sam Cooke, George Harrison, Cat Stevens and more, director James Gunn was quizzed about the lack of hardcore rock and heavy metal from that period.

"If you think about it, it would be way more like mom-rock," he explained. "I mean, a lot of dads were listening to Led Zeppelin or Cream or whatever at that time. Maybe it's the feminine side of me but I like that AM radio pop. People are always saying, 'Why don't you put Led Zeppelin in?' I'm like, 'That's not my thing.'"

Surely Mamma Quill has the odd Black Sabbath track up her sleeve for Vol. 3, right?
