Thor Ragnarok Trailer Review
I’ll be honest, the only superhero things I keep up to date with are the cinematic universes of both Marvel and DC so when this trailer came out…a lot of it went over my head. So let’s try and break it down.
After the events of Avengers: Age of Ultron and four years after the events of Thor: The Dark World, Thor, held captive on the planet Sakaar without his hammer, must win a gladiatorial duel against an old friend—the Hulk—in order to return to Asgard in time to stop the villainous Hela and the impending Ragnarok, the doom of the Asgardian civilization. Thank you Wikipedia!
So Ragnarok is a ‘real thing’ that the norse people believed in. But that tale was slightly different and included a giant serpent, Thor’s other brother (yes he had another) and none of this Hulk nonsense. You can read that all here.
But back to the trailer. Thor has short hair which honestly I find a bit odd. He looks too Chris Hemsworthy and not enough like Thor. Loki is back, woohoo, got to love him and we have some new faces we haven’t seen before. It begins with Thor and Hulk and then those two together form a mini avengers. A space avengers if you will, no not Guardians of the Galaxy.
But that came into play for me. It felt very Guardian-esque especially with the font choice and the action that was shown. The characters look good, the storyline seems like it’ll hold up but I do have one big issue.
That guy. That guy right there. The big, scary, fire monster demon thing. Or as others call him: Surtur. Now, for our heroes to succeed it seems they need to defeat this monster but look at the size of him compared to the Hulk. That is never going to happen! At least not in a logical story anyway. But I bet they do, because they’re ‘superheroes’ and all that.
This is the one movie I am most scared for because I don’t have a clue what is going on. I’ve been told countless times what Ragnarok is, both in the original version and the Marvel version, yet it still seems hard to comprehend and I feel like anyone who goes into the movie like I will, will be incredibly confused and find it hard to watch thanks to that. Let’s hope there’s a lot of exposition in this movie just so I can get through it! I don’t want it to be ruined because of my lack of knowledge.
What do you think of Thor: Ragnarok?
Until next time.
