The 5 Best Moments In ‘Thor: Ragnarok’

Previous1 of 6

Thor Ragnarok Best MomentsThe Thor films haven’t really been the most well received entries of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. In fact, both of the films have been some of the weakest, but with the release of Ragnarok approaching and early reviews being very positive, there’s actually a lot to look forward to in the God of Thunder’s latest cinematic solo outing.

Ragnarok is a film that changes the formula of the Thor series in many ways and that may be controversial to some fans. I recently got the chance to see Ragnarok myself and loved it, so now’s the perfect opportunity to look back and pick out the moments that stood out as the best the film has to offer.

Here are the 5 best moments in Thor: Ragnarok. Be aware that this article contains major spoilers, so you may want to wait until after you’ve seen the film to read it. If you have, just click Next to get started!
