The teaser trailer was released for Thor: Ragnarok today and it looks awesome!
Teaser Trailer from Thor: Ragnorak
I have always liked Thor, especially since I believe he brings a lot of humor to the Avengers. Tony Stark has his witty humor, but Thor is a goofball and just plain fun. I always felt like his standalone movies underscored this fact because they were all set in a dark and serious sort of tone, especially Thor: Dark World. It is true. The trailer does remind me a lot of Guardians of the Galaxy, but that is not necessarily a bad thing. I still find it different than the other Avengers’s movies because he is not a native of earth and, oftentimes, finds the other Avenger’s culture strange, yet fascinating. It is like you are watching him learn and adapt to a world he has yet to understand, but he still protects it as if earth was his own planet.
Still from behind the scenes of Thor: Ragnorak
Thor is such an interesting character. He has so many layers to him and I wish Marvel would dive in a little deeper about his past. For instance, what I really liked about Captain America: The Winter Soldier is that Steve’s past always comes back to haunt him and he is constantly having to face those demons. It makes me relate more to why Captain America does the things that he does (except for Captain America: Civil War). I believe, if Marvel plays off more from Thor’s personality, this movie could be really good and enjoyable to watch. With his last movies, I felt a little bored so I am really expecting Thor: Ragnarok to bring it. Hopefully, it will fulfill my wish. Here is an article about why Thor: Ragnarok could be Thor’s best standalone movie yet:
