Thor: Ragnarok

The hype was real with Thor: Ragnarok. I loved the idea of funny Thor in space with the Hulk bro-ing it up, and given Marvel’s track record, it was bound to be heaps of fun to watch, even if the plot may be a bit thin and the villains poor.

But man, did Thor: Ragnarok surprise me. While the plot and pacing was off, it defied my expectations and can handily call itself one of the most enjoyable Marvel films to date, plus it has an awesome villain.

Thor: Ragnarok – Trailer

This looks like it’s going to be SO MUCH FUN. Lots of Guardians vibes here, what with the music and the Dave Bautista/Drax humour when Thor meets Hulk.

Given that the press so far seems to hint at some sort of ‘buddy road trip’ film, I’m totally expecting the trailer to only be showing the early parts of the film, and Thor is going to escape with Hulk and try to find their way back home.

HYPED.

The reaction was swift and, in many cases, far too negative. “I love women who kick add but Thor’s a dude,” [sic] wrote one Twitter user. “Marvel comics being stupid,” announced another. And then there’s this, from a Marvel editor:

Here’s the deal: Marvel Comics has long borrowed Norse mythology for many of its beloved characters and plots. That’s free intellectual property, after all. But the comics are only inspired by Norse mythology, and they’ve almost never followed the stories line-for-line (and even if they did, mythology suffers from…
