Thor: The Dark World hits theaters tonight, and included at the end of the sequel are two after-credits scenes that lead us into Marvel’s next movies.

It’s not exactly a spoiler to say that there are a couple after-credits scenes at the end of Thor: The Dark World, as it has become commonplace for Marvel to lead audiences into their following films by adding scenes at the end of their latest movies.

Having said that, if you’d like to enjoy the after-credits scenes for Thor: The Dark World when you see them this weekend, we suggest not reading any further.

Thor: The Dark World is getting fairly positive reviews, with comedy being mentioned more than ever. While we’re a bit concerned that Marvel are overdoing the comedy just a bit, most of their target audience will love the Thor sequel.

Following the film, there are two after-credits scenes, well technically there is a mid-credits scene and then a post-credits scene, which make up the two additional scenes.


‘Thor: The Dark World’ mid-credits scene

The mid-credits scene at the end of Thor: The Dark World features Lady Sif (Jaimie Alexander) and Volstagg going to a lair of sorts for the immortal known as The Collector, who we reported is being played by Benicio Del Toro. Thor’s friends bring the Aether that Malekith attempted to use to destroy the universe with to The Collector.

When they leave, The Collector says “one down, five to go.”

He, of course, is referring to the fact that he has five more Infinity Stones to collect for Thanos.

This scene is extremely important to Marvel’s future, as with The Avengers‘ mid-credits scene, we saw that they plan on using the villain Thanos in the storyline at some point. Most likely culminating in the third Avengers film.

Marvel is revealing to the audience that the Aether and the Tesseract are Infinity Stones (Gems), which means they plan on completing the set of six gems – creating the Infinity Gauntlet which Thanos wears and uses to essentially kill the majority of Marvel’s heroes.

We’ll also be seeing more of The Collector in Guardians of the Galaxy and possibly Thanos as well. It’s interesting that Marvel is putting so much time in between these stones as they will be a massive part of their universe and may very well bring us into Marvel’s third phase.


‘Thor: The Dark World’ after-credits scene

In the post-credits scene in Thor: The Dark World, it continues telling the story from the end of the film. Thor explains to his father (who Loki is pretending to be) that he will be leaving their home of Asgard so that he can live with Jane and defend Earth from any future enemies.

We also see Jane once again alone on Earth, that is until Thor suddenly appears and lays an impressive kiss on her, fulfilling his earlier promise. As this scene ends we see one of the Frost Giants, which most likely got transported to Earth during the final battle between Thor and Malekith, and it’s chasing some birds.

We wouldn’t be surprised to see this Frost Giant become a way for Marvel to connect Thor’s sequel with their popular TV show Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., which is actually an unassuming and intelligent way to interlink the two mediums. Marvel is making a strong attempt to conquer TV, as well recently revealing their attempts to adapt their material into Netflix shows as well.

The post-credits scene seems less important to the overall story that Marvel is intending to play out. Although we needed Thor back on Earth for The Avengers: Age of Ultron, it seems like it was simply created to get Thor back to Earth, and not to link the film to a future storyline like the mid-credits scene did with the Infinity Gauntlet and Thanos.

This also gets Thor away from outer space, where Guardians of the Galaxy will be taking place and gives us an idea of why he wouldn’t be available to help them as he’s living with Jane and protecting Earth from any aliens or future enemies.

If you get a chance to check out Thor: The Dark World this weekend, be sure to let us know what you think about the two after-credits scenes featured at the end of the film. We’ll be interested to see how they link future Marvel films together.

Anyone who received a mole or rat Patronus in J.K. Rowling’s new quiz is getting a little reassurance from the Harry Potter author.

Last week Pottermore took the fandom by storm when they debuted the long-awaited Patronus quiz. It’s a next-level personality quiz — it’s beautiful and provides a real sense of magic. Overall, we love it!

There’s just one problem: Many people are getting Patronuses they don’t particularly like. After all this waiting, these poor fans got stuck with a creature that they’re allergic to (cats), are scared of (rats), or they simply don’t like (moles).

There’s just one problem: Many people are getting Patronuses they don’t particularly like. After all this waiting, these poor fans got stuck with a creature that they’re allergic to (cats), are scared of (rats), or they simply don’t like (moles).

Over the weekend Rowling fielded a couple of complaints by offering the upside to getting a rat or mole Patronus.

Rat Patronus explanation:

Mole Patronus explanation:

All told, there are over 140 Patronuses. Can she get to work on writing reassuring comments on every single one of ’em?

In a press release announcing the Patronus quiz, Pottermore said that “further new information and features will be revealed about the spell and its outcomes” in the “months to come.” Hopefully that means we really are getting detailed explanations.

Exclusive

At Copenhagen Comic-Con, Hypable caught up with Game of Thrones actress Kerry Ingram for a chat about Shireen’s horrific death scene, Netflix, and horseback riding.

It seemed like a full-circle moment when I got to sit down with Kerry Ingram and tell her just how much Shireen Baratheon’s death upset me. Even on a show like Game of Thrones, which makes an art out of assaulting its viewers’ senses, that particular scene felt like it crossed a line — and that was just my reaction, watching safely from behind a computer screen! How must the actress herself feel, having to actually act out her character’s death at such a young age?

This led to a wider musing about what Game of Thrones does to protect its child actors from the horrific things their characters experience. (Ingram is now 17, but was only barely in her mid-teens when that scene was filmed.) I also wondered if she ever went back and watched the scene. Turned out she watched it live with the rest of us — but, luckily, she was able to find the fun side of the situation: Outraged reactions like my own. The irony is sweet.

At Copenhagen Comic-Con 2016 I got to ask Kerry Ingram all this and more, while also diving into more fun topics like Shireen and Arya’s hypothetical take-over of Westeros, and Ingram’s new Netflix series, on which she plays ‘Becky with the good hair’ and gets to do lots of horseback riding. Watch the full interview below:

Ingram’s new Netflix series stars Jaylen Barron as Zoë, a 15-year-old American girl whose stay at Bright Field Stables in the U.K. leads her to form an unexpected friendship with a mysterious horse named Raven.

The Lime Pictures drama also stars Celine Buckens and Natalie Gumede. It was created by Anna McCleery and Vicki Lutas, and is tentatively expected to premiere on Netflix in 2017.

The cast of Will and Grace reunited this week to take on the 2016 Presidential Election.

Update: After a couple of days filled with agonizing teases, and just a hour before the first Presidential Debate, the Will & Grace reunion is now online! Watch the 10-minute episode below, taking on this year’s Presidential Election:

It’s the first “new episode” of Will & Grace since the finale in May 2006. Our hearts!

Original story: Will! Grace! Jack! Karen! Hot Food! Wait, what was that last one? The cast of Will and Grace got together this week to presumably to film a super-secret project. Are we finally getting that full cast reunion special? A reboot? A Christmas special? What does it mean?

http://reginalinetti.co.vu/post/140839408391/will-grace-gifs-58

The pictures began to pour in from all four of the cast members earlier this weekend with a few couple shots and one of the entire cast followed shortly.

The first few images made our hearts flutter and our eyes water, but then more photos were posted and it seems that the sweet reunion was more than just a few friends gathering for the fun of it. Something is coming. Something big.

Eric McCormack’s script here says, “Hot Food.” Similarly, on Sean Hayes’ Instagram, a picture featuring the same title was posted with the name “Fred” underneath.

Other photos, namely those of Megan Mullally and Sean Hayes, look as if they were shot on the rebuilt set of 9C. Be still my heart. Be still.

With very little to go on, some of our early guesses include a video filmed in support of a charity or, more likely, an announcement that the entire series is going to available for streaming on either Netflix, Hulu, or Amazon Prime. The series is currently not available online.

Whatever the news turns out to be, it was a great weekend to be a Will and Grace fan!

Stay tuned for more information after the announcement arrives!
