With Tessa Thompson's Valkyrie, Thor: Ragnarok has technically introduced the first canonically queer character to appear in the MCU, but because the only explicit nod to Valkyrie's sexuality was ultimately cut from the film, her queerness remains almost entirely subtextual. It's a bummer, but we can take solace in the fact that with Hela, Marvel has, accidentally, brought queer representation to its Cinematic Universe - in a very particular way.

Predicting the future is near impossible -- but that doesn‘t stop us all from having a red hot go. Human beings have been predicting the future since the beginning of history and the results range from the hilarious to the downright uncanny.
One thing all future predictions have in common: they‘re rooted in our current understanding of how the world works. It‘s difficult to escape that mindset. We have no idea how technology will evolve, so our ideas are connected to the technology of today.
So it looks like Marvel has decided it's Thor: Ragnarok Thursday. Earlier, Entertainment Weekly posted our first look at the film, and now they have revealed even more photos, including the much, much anticipated first look at Jeff Goldblum's cosmic lover of competition, the Grandmaster.
Video: Terrence Malick has a documentary that is, of course, about the entire history and future of humankind. And, equally obviously, there's a 40-minute version for IMAX narrated by Brad Pitt as well as a regular film version narrated by Cate Blanchett. No offence to Pitt, but we'd take the Blanchett version any day.
