The Thor movies have been kinda the runt of the Marvel Studios litter, and while the years, I think, have proven kind to the initial Kenneth Branagh-directed entry, they still pale in comparison to the Captain America films or any of the flashier character kick-offs within that same canon.
But Thor: Ragnarok is looking to change all that, and they start, like any good viking god movie should…with Led Zeppelin:
That may be just the movie we’ve been looking for. From exploding Mjolnir to Cate Blanchett looking fierce as Hela to that last battle set-up, I’m all in.
Imprisoned on the other side of the universe, the mighty Thor (Chris Hemsworth) finds himself in a deadly gladiatorial contest that pits him against the Hulk (Mark Ruffalo), his former ally and fellow Avenger. Thor’s quest for survival leads him in a race against time to prevent the all-powerful Hela (Cate Blanchett) from destroying his home world and the Asgardian civilization.
Thor: Ragnarok, directed by the brilliant Taika Waititi, opens on November 3rd.
