Thor: Ragnarok opened this past weekend and it was pretty great. There was one thing, however, that stuck out from the rest …of the previews. Black Panther.
Time to get excited for Avengers: Infinity War (the time is long passed). I’m waiting with baited breath for the first trailer. Until then, Thor can tide you over with heart, massive battles, and laughs.
One thing Thor: Ragnarok showed us, no
hero sidekick is safe. Not even the blonde locks are safe from the cutting room floor. Some beloved secondary characters lose their hero shields. This isn’t new to the Thor franchise, however. Thor: The Dark World also had a significant character death to help goad the hero into battle once more.
And, yes, the fight scene between Thor and Hulk teased in the trailer is as good as you’d hope from the previews.
The laughs and the spaceships are reminiscent of Guardians of the Galaxy, but the comradary between Thor and Hulk, and Hulk and Valkyrie is more than excellent enough to keep the movie fresh and fun.
