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.


  1. I was not a fan at all of the first two Thor movies but this look over the top balls-out amazing. Thank goodness for Taika Waititi. He’s exactly what this franchise needed.

  2. Ugh, it loses with the Whedon-esque nudge nudge wink wink “he’s a friend from work”- why do all comic movies have to do this ironic nonsense?

  3. Yeah, that was pretty terrific. I keep thinking that they’re going to start to feel stale, but this looks great
