God of War: Ragnarok is finally here, and with it comes new insight into Sony Santa Monica’s take on Norse mythology, one that differs greatly from the MCU adventures of characters like Thor and Loki.

The sprawling PS5 epic features plenty of familiar faces for fans of Marvel Studios’ Asgardian epics, with unique takes on a number of characters from across Norse mythos.

The title has received near-universal acclaim, for its adaptation of Norse mythos and its take on the end-of-the-world story of Ragnarok (something Marvel Studios touched on in the Thor movie with the same name).

So with God of War: Ragnarok in the wild, here’s a comparison of how Loki, Thor, and the other Norse stalwarts in the game differ from their Marvel Studios counterparts.

Warning – The rest of this article contains spoilers for God of War: Ragnarok.

Loki

The Direct

The God of the war The most different character from the MCU has to be Loki (aka Atreus). Loki in this digital universe diverges significantly from the Norse source material, being the son of the Greek god Kratos and his giant wife Laufey the Just instead of the adopted son of Odin and brother of Thor.

Compared to Tom Hiddleston’s big (and small) screen, God of the warLoki is almost unrecognizable. Of course, Sony Santa Monica’s version of the God of Mischief is far more heroic and noble, having been taught by his father Kratos. It’s completely different from Marvel’s Loki, who is considered a villain or an anti-hero most of the time.

Thor

God of War Thor Comparison
The Direct

by Ragnarok Thor’s version is one that might come as a bit of a shock to fans of the MCU character. The God of Thunder is portrayed as a vengeful drunkard, who – at times – is nothing more than hired muscle for his father Odin.

God of the war takes Thor and places him on the villain’s side, with a look reminiscent of a fat Thor from Avengers: Endgameif he never got back in shape during Thor: Love and Thunder. While Chris Hemsworth‘s Thor is a specimen, who stands as the thing all humans should aspire to, at least physically, God of the warThe interpretation of the character is a behemoth of a man (similar to Fat Thor), being as much a ram as a thunder-wielding god.

Odin

God of War Odin Comparison
The Direct

Odin serves as God of War: Ragnarokthe main antagonist, who will be a little different for MCU fans Thor movies. On the big screen, Anthony Hpokins’ Odin is seen as a father figure to Thor and Loki, serving as a moral compass for the couple. In the MCU, there are apparently no devious or conniving bones in Odin’s body, which there is absolutely not the case in. Ragnarok.

In the God of the war sequel, Odin is so evil. It almost has similar characteristics to the MCU on Loki. He’s paranoid, backstabbing, and willing to do anything to bring about Ragnarok (aka the end of days).

Freya/Frigga

God of War Freya Comparison
The Direct

After appearing in both God of the war (2018) and Ragnarok, it has become apparent that this is a significantly different Freya (or Frigga) from the MCU. Seen in the Thor films as a somewhat loud, soft-spoken matriarch, Freya in the God of the war the universe has much more to do.

PlayStation’s Freya is a vengeful witch who, after separating from her husband Odin, is banished to live out her days in the deep forests of Midgard. This is quite unique compared to Marvel Studios’ version of the Asgardian whose regal and generous nature grants her a role as an advisor similar to that of Odin of the silver screen.

sif

God of War Sif Comparison
The Direct

In God of the war, it’s almost as if Freya and Sif swapped characters compared to the MCU. Sif takes on that matriarchal role that Freya fills in the comics and in the movies.

While the MCU’s Sif (played by Jamie Alexander) is a fierce warrior, God of the warThe character’s outlook is much more motherly, being a wife to Thor rather than a friend on the battlefield, and remaining in Asgard to care for the children the couple have together.

heimdall

God of War Heimdall Comparison
The Direct

Like Thor and Odin, Ragnarok gives Heimdall a wicked tilt. Instead of the stoic, Bifrost-wielding portrayal made by Idris Elba in the Marvel movies, this Heimdall is pretty dastardly without Bifrost to behold.

He’s arrogant, always looking for a fight and – to be blunt – a hell of an asshole. In both mediums, Heimdall is Odin’s eyes and ears of the realm, but God of the war takes that sentiment in a much more sinister direction.

Asgard

God of War Comparison Asgard
The Direct

And to top it all off, there’s a little bonus entry: Asgard. Yes, the home of the Norse gods makes an appearance in God of War: Ragnarok and looks totally different from the iconic MCU locale. RagnarokMarvel’s version of God City does away with Marvel’s garish golden midfield, replacing it with a fairly normal-looking Nordic village.

There is no palace here with sprawling golden spiers shooting through the air. Instead, the entire estate is made of wood and stone with patches of green grass scattered around and a monolithic wall protecting it from intruders. It’s a much more grounded view of Asgard than seen in the MCU for sure.

A Norse Tale for the Ages

While Ragnarok usually signals the end, this is just the beginning, a taste of what to expect in God of War Ragnarok.

Like Marvel Studios did all those years ago, Sony Santa Monica presented its take on a familiar myth in Norse stories. Something exciting to see, hear and experience alongside these heroes and villains.

So swap that Chris (Hemsworth) for Kratos and go explore. God of War: Ragnarok is now in stores on PlayStation 4 and 5.

8 Movies You Didn’t Know Starring These MCU Actors Before They Were Superheroes https://passionrecut.com/8-movies-you-didnt-know-starring-these-mcu-actors-before-they-were-superheroes/ Thu, 10 Nov 2022 20:00:00 +0000 https://passionrecut.com/8-movies-you-didnt-know-starring-these-mcu-actors-before-they-were-superheroes/ The year 2008 marks the beginning of one of the greatest film franchises in the history of cinema: the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

The year 2008 marks the beginning of one of the greatest film franchises in the history of cinema: the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Of course, the comic book superhero movies were there, like the Blade trilogy with Wesley Snipes, the whole x-men movies, perhaps the most popular, Sam Raimi Spider Man franchise. That being said, even the best superhero movies weren’t the only box office dominating draw they are today.


When Iron Man came out in 2008, it was more or less a gamble. No one expected a movie to kick off a billion dollar franchise that now has dozens of interconnected Disney+ movies and series across multiple franchises. Due to the fame and fortune of the MCU, actors who play prominent superhero roles naturally see their careers reach new heights, gaining worldwide recognition. Of course, before joining the mega-franchise, MCU actors are, after all, still actors, trying to make the best careers for themselves. This often involves playing smaller roles in blockbuster movies before becoming famous. Indeed, here’s a look at eight notable films featuring MCU actors before they were superheroes.

VIDEO OF THE DAY

8/8 Home Alone 3 — Scarlett Johansson

Hughes Entertainment

Although home alone 3 wasn’t as critically successful as its predecessors, it still did quite well upon release. Its mixed reception was likely the result of the absence of Kevin McAllister, played by Macaulay Culkin, in favor of Alex Pruitt (played by Alex D. Linz), as well as the change of director, from Chris Columbus to Raja Gosnell. However, home alone 3 presented a young Scarlett Johansson like Molly, Alex’s sister. To prove how long ago that was, the actress recently watched the movie with her daughter to see if she recognized her (via People).

Although it was one of Larson’s breakthrough roles, she did not return for the sequel as the directors admitted they could not find a place for the character in the story.

Following the life and murder of rapper The Notorious BIG/Biggie Smalls, Famous is a biographical drama that stars Jamal Woolard as Wallace, Angela Bassett, Derek Luke and, yes, our new Captain America, Anthony Macky, like Tupac Shakur. Incidentally, Mackie tried to convince the producers to let him rap a bit in the film, but they didn’t budge (per MTV, via The Playlist). Nonetheless, it was a great honor for the MCU actor to land such an important role early in his career.

5/8 Star Trek – Chris Hemsworth

For Olsen, this movie sits in the few years between graduating from NYU and joining the MCU as fan favorite Wanda Maximoff.

Having received five nominations at the 86th Academy Awards, it’s safe to say that the romantic sci-fi drama His was a huge success. We do know that Theodore Twombly’s character is played by Joaquin Phoenix and the AI ​​virtual assistant he falls in love with is voiced by Johansson. But, you may not remember Chris Pratt stars in the film too. He is even proud tweeted about it in 2013: “I’m in a movie with Joaquin Phoenix directed by Spike Jonze. It’s called #HER I have a supporting role. Last night I misspelled Jonze.” Around the time of HisPratt was best known for his role in Parks and recreation, and had only played small roles in major films.

Animated by Studio Ghibli and written by Hayao Miyazaki himself, The secret world of Arrietty is a fantasy film about a family of tiny people who secretly live within the walls of a typical house and steal human food to survive. This may come as a surprise, but for the English dub, we mean Tom Holland as Sho, alongside names such as Saoirse Ronan, Mark Strong and Amy Poehler. Many only discovered this information after Holland rose to fame as the MCU’s Spider-Man, of course.

Benedict Cumberbatch stars in the film too, in the small but central role of Paul Marshall, whose major crime in the 1930s has serious repercussions for everyone else. For Cumberbatch, that role came just a few years before his breakout tour in sherlockwhich, in turn, came years before Doctor Strange in 2016.

Why Henry Cavill Is Leaving ‘The Witcher’ and What He Will Do Next https://passionrecut.com/why-henry-cavill-is-leaving-the-witcher-and-what-he-will-do-next/ Wed, 02 Nov 2022 21:08:00 +0000 https://passionrecut.com/why-henry-cavill-is-leaving-the-witcher-and-what-he-will-do-next/ Fans of The Witcher will have to get used to a new face under Geralt of Rivia’s signature blonde wig and yellow contact lenses.

Fans of The Witcher will have to get used to a new face under Geralt of Rivia’s signature blonde wig and yellow contact lenses. Henry Cavill, who has played Geralt since the series debuted in 2019, is leaving after Season 3, Netflix announced over the weekend.

This isn’t the first time a major character from a TV series or movie franchise has been recast. Don Cheadle replaced Terrence Howard as James Rhodes in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. In the 1960s, Dick Sargent replaced Dick York as Darin, Samantha’s mortal husband in Bewitched. It’s not to say anything about James Bond or how Doctor Who has incorporated the redesign into the show’s premise.

Still, for many The Witcher fans, this is big news. Here’s everything you need to know about Henry Cavill leaving The Witcher.

What is The Witcher?

The Witcher is a fantasy series on Netflix. The first season was released in 2019, followed by a second season in 2021. Based on a series of 90s novels by Polish writer Andrzej Sapkowski, it tells the story of Geralt de Riv, a monster hunter called Witcher . Other characters include Yennefer, a witch who is Geralt’s on-and-off love interest; Dandelion, a mildly annoying bard largely responsible for spreading Geralt’s reputation through song; and Ciri, a young girl whose fate is tied to Geralt by a custom called the Law of Surprise.

Why is Henry Cavill leaving The Witcher?

There’s no big drama there. Cavill posted on Facebook on Saturday that it was time for him to move on.

“My journey as Geralt of Rivia has been filled with both monsters and adventure, and alas, I will be laying down my medallion and swords for Season 4,” he said. Netflix also posted an article on its Tudum website, making the announcement.

Who will replace Henry Cavill?

Geralt is not leaving. Instead, Liam Hemsworth will take on the role. You might recognize Hemsworth as Gale Hawthrone from the Hunger Games movies. His brother, notably, is Chris Hemsworth, who plays Thor in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. In a statement, Liam Hemsworth said: “As a Witcher fan, I’m thrilled at the opportunity to play Geralt of Rivia.”

What’s next for Henry Cavill?

On October 24, the British actor said via Instagram that he would play Superman again after a cameo appearance in the film by another DC Comics character.

“A tiny little taste of what’s to come, my friends,” he wrote in the caption below a photo of himself as Superman and a video of him talking about his comeback.

Cavill first played Superman in 2013’s Man of Steel. In an interview with ScreenRant, he said his goal for the character was to make audiences leaving the theater “feel[ing] like they could fly,” possibly hinting at a less gloomy take on the character.

When is The Witcher season 3 coming out?

Season 3 of The Witcher is set to release in the summer of 2023. Cavill will still be playing Geralt that season.

What do Witcher fans think about this?

Over the years, many fans have taken a liking to Cavill grumbling and swearing in his role as Geralt. Not everyone is happy with the news of her leaving the show, and some have taken to social media to register their feelings.

There’s also a petition on Change.org to bring Cavill back and replace the show’s writers instead. To date, it has over 21,000 signatures.

Yes, Marvel Replaced Thor 4 Kids With CGI If Their Game Was Bad https://passionrecut.com/yes-marvel-replaced-thor-4-kids-with-cgi-if-their-game-was-bad/ Sun, 23 Oct 2022 17:01:48 +0000 https://passionrecut.com/yes-marvel-replaced-thor-4-kids-with-cgi-if-their-game-was-bad/ Sometimes, when it comes to child actors, the outcome can be mixed.

Sometimes, when it comes to child actors, the outcome can be mixed. Of course, there are success stories like the casting of stranger things, but there are also many that do not work. As far as the MCU goes, one of the most recent child actors to appear on screen was India Rose Hemsworth, aka Love, in Thor: Love and Thunder.

Hemsworth’s love is likely to reappear down the line since it comes from eternity itself.

Another big kid performs in love and thunder was Keiron L. Dryer, who brought Heimdall’s surprise son, Axl, to life. He played the important role of being the key allowing Thor to communicate with the kidnapped children.

However, it looks like there were a few instances of less-than-stellar child performances in Chris Hemsworth‘s latest film – audiences just never got to see them.

Replacing Questionable Child Actors in the MCU

In an interview with Before & After, Weta FX CG Supervisor Jo Davison and Compositing Supervisor Tim Walker spoke about the digital replacement of child actors in Thor: Love and Thunder and what were some of the hardest knocks.

Walker admitted that they “got a better performance from some digi-kids (double CGI of child actors).” But aside from the stage kids, the VFX artist has drawn attention to his work by integrating lighting between stage work and pairing it with upcoming CGI replacements.

To do this, they used what is called match-moving, a technique that allows computer images to intersect in live-action sequences with the correct position, scale, orientation and movement. in relation to the objects photographed in the shot:

“…Sometimes there were kids in the background that we got a better performance from some digi-kids. They were therefore replaced by digi-kids. But what’s cool about the sequence is that each kid was holding an LED gun. So they were rocking them and it gave this unique light interaction to all the characters on the plate. Especially them for close-ups. So there were match-move components for weapons.”

In reference to the eyes, he noted how they “didn’t need to be very detailed:”

“So the eyes, more of the traditional roto kind[-scoping] approach. Just because of the distance, we didn’t need to go very detailed with the eyes themselves. And then there was a little extra match-moving for any body [tracking] that we needed to add for child heroes, so we always had a matching move to add that work. And that kind of stems from any interactive light we needed. We could give something back, even if it was just some kind of support pass that we could use to track.

Thor: Love and Thunder

When asked what was the hardest sequence they had worked on or at any particular time, Walker referenced the scene above, revealing that there were sometimes around 50 kids in the frame who had all need to replace their weapons, among others:

“…There are a few shots at the start of the fight where all the kids are fighting. And we touched on the LED weapons and they had to be replaced. And for a few shots, we had about 50 kids in frame at a time. So, the logistics to do the matching and replacement work was quite significant. The roto and painting were also quite involved and quite tricky, but… those two shots probably marked me as the toughest challenge.

Walker gave props to their “good team of [compositors]”, as well as Angelica Perez Valadez, the “Senior Counter” who worked on these shots:

“We had a good team of [compositors], [Angelica Perez Valadez], our senior friend who was in these shots, gave the impression that it was easy. Lots of hard work, but just from an integration perspective, those are probably the biggest challenges of the sequence.

Thor: Love and Thunder
wonder

Davison shone the spotlight on a different scene: Thor’s new goats flying out of New Asgard. He pointed out how “the rainbow bridge is being built and the goats are running over it” something that was “very difficult… from a rendering point of view:”

“Yeah… so we talked a lot about the battle room plans. But Weta also did some shots in New Asgard where the boat and the goats depart from the dock. So my toughest shot, our toughest moment is actually sitting in that streak. And it’s a shot where the rainbow bridge is being built and the goats are running over it as the boat takes off. And it’s a shot, from a rendering point of view, it’s very difficult.”

But why is it particularly difficult? Well, according to Davison, they had “the glass blocks with an emissive source inside with a path layout:”

“You have the glass blocks with an emissive source inside with a path trace renderer. That’s about as hard as it gets, or just a really nice example of a bunch of departments coming together , and putting their heads together, and figuring out a really tricky problem right at the end of the show. And it’s funny, because I think that’s one of our plans where it was in play right from the start of the show and one of the last plans to come out. And I feel like there’s always one.

How the MCU handled digital doubles in Love and Thunder

It’s no surprise to hear that some kids were completely substituted if their game wasn’t too good. After all, there were quite a few kids in those climactic action sequences.

It was previously revealed that stars like Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman and Christian Bale all brought their children to work for the film. Considering the number of children seen on screen, it wouldn’t be terribly difficult to assume that many of the cast and crew may have involved their young ones.

A good chunk of these young actors have probably never acted once in their lives – so being replaced digitally was probably something Marvel Studios figured it might have to do at some point.

Although fans may have issues with Thor: Love and Thunder, most of that grief doesn’t seem to be aimed at the kids in the movie. So it looks like the VFX artists have done a great job of hiding any performance issues, aside from the oft-criticized floating-head graphic for Heimdal’s son.

Thor: Love and Thunder is now streaming on Disney+.
