5 Reasons We’re Excited For ‘Thor: Ragnarok’

Previous1 of 6

Thor: RagnarokGuardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is out on home media and Spider-Man: Homecoming has been playing in theaters for a while now, so it’s time to look forward to the next Marvel movies, the first being Thor: Ragnarok.

The trailer for the film is incredible. The vibe, the action, the set-design, the soundtrack, every element of the trailer screams, “This is a different kind of Thor movie.”

And that’s exactly what we need. Thor: The Dark World was the most easily forgettable Marvel sequel, only distinguishable from the original for its use of fan-favorite villain Loki. Thor: Ragnarok looks poised to switch up the formula, seeming more like a fun intergalactic romp than a brooding space epic.

Judging from the trailer and other positive buzz, there’s plenty of cause to be excited for Thor: Ragnarok. Here are the 5 reasons why. Click next to get started!

    I’m super excited for the next Thor movie, but in no way was I disappointed by “The Dark World.” Don’t know why this writer thought it was so bad and boring.

  • Keithleen Esperanza

    Not a fan of Thor, I’m only watching this just for Cate Blanchett.

    I’m confused. HOW did you get the idea that it’s Loki’s fault Hela is “out” and after Asgard? I didn’t see anything in the trailers to indicate that. Have you already seen a rough-cut of the film, Aaron?

    And why assume Loki’s been using his time as Odin to cause trouble? Have you not paid attention or watched S.H.I.E.L.D.? He’s been doing a good job: had the Aether locked away, *off* of Asgard and away from the Tesseract… has sent Sif to rescue the stupid mortals on Midgard a couple of times… did NOT just up and kill Odin, even if he had a good reason to. For all we know, the place is running better under his command.

    Oops, should’ve read the whole thing first: it’s spelled MJOLNIR.

    We don’t know why Loki is on Sakaar but, perhaps, it’s to rescue Thor since Loki may be in disguise by wearing Sakaarian blue.

    Thor may be without Mjolnir but this may be when he takes up Megingjord to augment his powers (and maybe Loki gets it for him).
