Finally, we get a Thor movie trailer, after what seems like forever. When you consider that Thor is due out in November, the same month as Justice League and we are just now getting a trailer, that’s late for a major tent pole film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. But man, this films looks great and more importantly… FUN!
Here, watch the trailer and then read the rest…
Now I know some people like to shit all over the Thor films in the MCU, but I liked them. I like Thor, sue me. But what I really liked in this trailer was Thor’s personality. Finally, we are seeing Hemsworth showing he has some comedy chops. If you had to sit through that piece of shit film, Ghostbusters (the reboot), then you saw Hemsworth, as the funniest person in that movie and the scene stealer. Which is no small task with comedy greats, Melissa McCarthy, Kate McKinnon, Kristen Wiig and Leslie Jones. On top of that, Hemsworth has also shined on SNL too. The reveal of Hulk at the end and Thor’s “Yeeeeessssss. We know each other from work.” Is great and shows that director Taika Waititi is bringing his humor to the MCU as well.
This addition of humor is a smart move with Thor, especially with the “Living with Thor” short films, that show Hemsworth’s Thor living with a roommate Darryl, who is tired of Thor leaving Mjolnir on the coffee table and Thor just being a lazy roommate. If you haven’t seen those, shame on you!
The trailer also shows the villain of the film, Hela, played by Cate Blanchett, who looks amazing in the role. When she stops Mjolnir mid-throw and then just breaks it like a piece of chalk, shows her power without words. Overall, the trailer/teaser looks great and while I would have loved to have had it sooner, I’m just glad it looks great! I think we need a good, fun MCU film before shit hits the fan with Infinity War.
If you haven’t seen the roommate Thor, here, you lazy bums, I got it for you!
