When Taika Waititi claimed that Thor: Ragnarok would change the direction of the MCU, it seemed like a bold claim. After all, Thor had pretty much been the least successful Avenger in an MCU world that had already explored magic, sci-fi, deep space, and the world of the Gods. However, as the least successful property in the MCU, it also meant that there were more chances that were available to be taken because there was much less available to be lost.
And while the entire plot has practically been revealed in interviews, the trailer left many questions. For instance, choosing Led Zeppelin’s Immigrant Song and opting for a font that seemingly fits the time period when the song was released (or even perhaps a little later in the 80’s), but then with the special effects of today.
It actually almost seems a bit off. Like someone was really high, realized that Thor is a Norse God and Valhalla is referenced in Immigrant Song, so there had to be a connection.
That being said, at least this Marvel trailer didn’t necessarily give away an entire movie, highlighted the fact that the tone will be substantially lighter, and, in fact, did start setting the course for future Marvel movies which will reportedly be more buddy flicks when Phase 4 starts to roll around.
Not to mention, getting to see Thor and a surprise guest go at it at the end of the trailer does look pretty awesome…
Thor: Ragnarok will hit theaters nationwide November 3, 2017.
