THOR 2

Over at MTV, Chris Hemsworth expounded on the relationship between Loki and Thor for "Thor 2."

"It's what I loved about the comics. It was never clean and cut and that's it," Hemsworth told MTV. "It was always like, Thor would forgive him, they'd be friends, and Loki would betray him again. 'You idiot, Thor! Again?' But it was different than your normal good guy, bad guy scenario. They're brothers, you know? Anyone with siblings understands that. 'That's it, I'm never talking to you again… want to play football?'"

THE HULK

According to The Hollywood Reporter's piece on a conference call preceding the ABC upfronts earlier this week, ABC entertainment president Paul Lee mentioned a show about the Hulk is currently in development.

"It wasn't going to be ready this season but we hope it's going to be ready for next season," he said.

"The Hulk" reveal comes after the news of Fox passing on "The Punisher" series as well as a rejection from ABC of "AKA Jessica Jones," an adaptation of Brian Michael Bendis' "Alias" series.

THE AVENGERS

Although the interview was conducted before "The Avengers" even hit theaters, director Joss Whedon spoke with The L.A. Times' Hero Complex and said he was "very torn" about coming back for the potential sequel.

"It's an enormous amount of work telling what is ultimately somebody else’s story, even though I feel like I did get to put myself into it," Whedon told Hero Complex. "But at the same time, I have a bunch of ideas, and they all seem really cool."

Also, an incredibly spoiler-y info with actor Clark Gregg can be found over at Ain't It Cool News. Do not click through if you haven't seen the movie.

In theaters now.
