Thor: Ragnarok Revisited: Your Hammer Pounded You?

Thor: Ragnarok Revisited: Your Hammer Pounded You? ...

Thor: Ragnarok had always had a difficult spell in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. He is both noble and heroic, but he is also harder to describe, partly because he is a comically gifted actor who excels in humor over the years, as well as because they seem ambivalent about getting involved in the drama. Then, we see the trailer for the next installment of Thor: Love and Thunder. As a result, Thor: Love and Thunder has always been on the way.

Thor: Ragnarok's guiding principle is to always go for the joke. There are a few serious issues beneath the surface, but Ragnarok is a raucous comedy that allows him to take part in the whole process for much of the production. In the first five minutes, he casually mentions to a skeleton that he did not find any. Instead, he has instead taken him towards visions of Ragnarok, an apocalyptic event that will

This is where Waititi has the ability to basically put his comic voice into Thors mouth (like those from his previous films like What We Do in the Shadows and Hunt for the Wilder people). For some, this may be jarring. However, Ragnarok insists that if actors are always limited to what they have already done, they will not be disappointed.

On the one hand, I can sympathize with fans of the first two Thor films. If you like Thor's relationship with Jane Foster (Natalie Portman) as well as the kind of stories these films are telling about the grandiose Asgardian royalty, then Ragnarok might be a kind of reboot, but it is quite different from the previous Thor films. It might also be a reboot of sorts, completely uninterested in what was preceded, and is eager to rewrite everything

I wouldn't even say Waititi is completely uninterested in the past of the MCU. Rather, Ragnarok seems eager to take what works and build upon it, even though he keeps discarding the rest. So, for example, without feeling much connection to the Warriors Three, Waititi is constantly considering their abilities. Because they were very varied, or because they were familiar, then it's not surprising that Waititi is limited to the patience of these supporting characters.

Where Waititi sees potential, he's willing to double down, like Odin (Anthony Hopkins) being a spooky ruler who made some seriously controversial decisions. If there is a part where Ragnarok might go even further, it is in the dark past of Asgard. When you introduce Hela to history, you spawn a complicated past that might come back and bite you. Although I wish the film did more, it seems like they might go further with him

It is always ignoring anything too serious, but there is still room for Waititi to create a hilarious and surprisingly thoughtful film. Although the film never wants to be too uncomfortable or serious, it quickly moves to the next gag and the next gag, and it always feels like Waititi would go a bit deeper if he wanted.

A studio that is willing to show that kind of nimbleness and heterodoxy when it comes to Avengers: Infinity War might not have been the most successful Thor film to date. At the same time, Waititi believes, "I'm assuming that the world will be destroyed." In short, it appears that the film, which is more likely to focus on the protagonists, is not one of the greatest.
