Link Tank: Valkyrie Gets a Comic-Accurate Suit in Thor: Love and Thunder
Another MCU hero will be getting a more accurate costume, Horizon Zero Dawn is going VR, George R.R. Martin is praising the new prequel series, and more in Link Tank!
As seems to be a tradition in phase 4 of the MCU up to this point, another character is getting a comic-accurate suit, and this time it’s Valkyrie in Thor: Love and Thunder.
“Valkyrie is charging back into the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and she’s returning with a new look. Not only is she sporting a new outfit, but the color scheme is a nod to how Valkyrie originally appeared in the Marvel Universe.”
Game of Thrones author George R.R. Martin has high praise for the upcoming prequel series that is set to debut later in 2022.
“A Song of Ice and Fire book series author George R.R. Martin shared on his ‘Not of Blog’ a personal ‘Most Anticipated’ list for 2022 in terms of television. It’s no surprise that Game of Thrones prequel House Of The Dragon made the list, and the author sang praise of what he’s seen so far.”
As the DC film Blue Beetle gets set to begin production, the star of the flick has already tried on the suit and has high praise.
“Cobra Kai’s Xolo Maridueña confirmed he’s tried on two different iterations of his Blue Beetle suit in a recent interview with USA Today. We’ve done two suit fittings. ‘They’re hoping that I get more buff by the time we actually start filming. But I’ve seen the suit, and it looks awesome.'”
The Golden Globes are back this weekend, but you can’t watch them or see any red carpet. At least there’s no Ricky Gervais?
“Awards season is upon us, and with that, unfortunately, comes the Golden Globes. The Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA), the organization that runs the Globes, has been the subject of numerous controversies over the years, ranging from thinking The Martian was the best comedy of 2015 to sending the stars of Emily In Paris to Paris. But last year’s scandal brought an end to the Globes as we knew it. An L.A. Times exposé revealed that the HFPA 87-journalist voting body contained zero Black members. As a result, many in Hollywood opted to boycott the Globe; others sent their awards back.”
Sony’s Horizon Zero Dawn adds a virtual reality title to its repertoire with the latest spinoff.
“Sony pulled back the curtain on its next-gen virtual reality headset tonight at CES 2022. It’s called PlayStation VR2 (woah, who would’ve guessed?) and it’ll feature a virtual reality spinoff of Horizon Zero Dawn (okay, no snark here, who would’ve guessed?). Called Horizon Call of the Mountain, it’s a proper ‘new story…and experience,’ rather than a VR port of Guerrilla Games’ open-world Horizon Zero Dawn or its sequel, next month’s deliriously anticipated Horizon Forbidden West.”
From 1950 onward, let’s look at the most popular movie from the year you were born.
“While adorable, babies have only a dim comprehension of the world around them. They certainly don’t have awareness of the highest-grossing movie the year they were born. In case you’re older—and curious—take a look at the movies that made the most money (domestically and typically adjusted for inflation) for each of the past 72 years.”
