The Marvel Cinematic Universe expanded a little more this week with the release of its latest superhero film and the completion of a trilogy with Thor: Ragnarok!
Thor (Chris Hemsworth) returns to Asgard to find his brother, Loki (Tom Hiddleston), up to his same mischief and quickly dispatches him before dragging him along to find their father, Odin (Anthony Hopkins). With a little help from Earth’s new Sorcerer Supreme, Doctor Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch), they manage to find him–ailing. With his last words he tells them of their sister, The Goddess of Death, Hela (Cate Blanchett)! Unlike Thor or Loki who are satiated with Earth and Asgard, respectively. Our Thunderer has to enlist the unlikely help of The Hulk (Mark Ruffalo), Valkyrie (Tessa Thompson), friends, and a surprising new ally to avoid Ragnarok and save his people.
This film is definitely action-packed! Thor took on some major villains in Hela and Surtur, and his rival, The Hulk. With the former it’s always the god of thunder going up against other forces of nature; in the case death and destruction! It is honestly a foreshadowing of the even more powerful villain he will face in Avengers: Infinity War, Thanos! You will love Cate Blanchett as Hela, she screams Cruella De Ville meets all-powerful goddess.
Surprisingly, the film was really funny! You will love the one liners, reads, and banter of all the characters. You just be sure to catch it in theaters everywhere today–and stay for two additional scenes post-credit!
