While the first two Thor films were fun, they were sometimes a bit too serious for their own good. It’s something that became more of an issue in the second movie, where it became more difficult not to realise how silly some of it was, when everyone was taking it so seriously.
However, it seems that for Thor: Ragnarok they’re taking a leaf out of the Guardians Of The Galaxy playbook and introducing a lot more humour. Indeed, there will be a bit of a Guardians crossover, as Jeff Goldblum who was seen as the Grandmaster on Guardian Vol. 2, will also be in the third Thor film. From the evidence of the new trailer, while the additional humour changes Thor, it should work, as it looks a lot of fun.
Alongside a new Thor: Ragnarok trailer and poster, to coincide with Marvel’s Comic Con panel, a Black Panther poster has been released, which it has to be said, is pretty cool.
Here’s the Thor: Ragnarok synopsis: ‘In Marvel Studios’ Thor: Ragnarok, Thor is imprisoned on the other side of the universe without his mighty hammer and finds himself in a race against time to get back to Asgard to stop Ragnarok—the destruction of his homeworld and the end of Asgardian civilization—at the hands of an all-powerful new threat, the ruthless Hela. But first he must survive a deadly gladiatorial contest that pits him against his former ally and fellow Avenger—the Incredible Hulk!
‘Thor: Ragnarok is directed by Taika Waititi and returns Chris Hemsworth starring as Thor and Tom Hiddleston reprising his role as Loki. They are joined by Cate Blanchett, Idris Elba, Jeff Goldblum, Tessa Thompson and Karl Urban, with Mark Ruffalo and Anthony Hopkins.’
Thor: Ragnarok will be in UK cinemas on October 27th. Black Panther will be released February 2018.
