It’s taken a while but finally, the first looks at Thor, Mighty Thor, and Valkyrie are here ahead of Thor: Love and Thunder later on this year and they look ridiculously awesome.
Um…whoa. First off, Natalie Portman’s Mighty Thor looks perfect. To think she’s gone from playing Padme to this. Ah, I’m freaking out a little. I absolutely cannot wait to see her being a fierce warrior goddess onscreen as the Mighty Thor.
Last week’s episode of What If…? showcased Thor in a bit of a different light as we saw him avoiding the responsibilities of being Prince of Asgard and instead he went full-blown teenager-party mode on everyone.
When the episode ended I couldn’t help thinking about Thor: Love and Thunder and how we may see a very party-centric Thor in that movie.
We can’t forget he’s now with the Guardians of the Galaxy who are known to participate in some galactic shenanigans and with his new look,
it’s very clear that this version of Thor will probably have at least a little bit of a good time. Could we see a bit of that Party Thor vibe crossover into Thor: Love and Thunder? Or will Gorr the God Butcher (played by Christian Bale) arrive before Thor can have too much fun?
Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments below.
I thank you for reading and I hope you have a lovely day.
So, the last four weeks of What If…? were very dour. From having to watch the OG Avengers being killed off to seeing Doctor Strange lose the love of his life over and over again to even last week, watching Killmonger live up to his name was just…shocking, to say the least.
So, this week’s episode was a welcome respite from the darker tones and was just plain fun.
Chris Hemsworth’s return as Thor was hilarious and don’t even get me started with Loki! Oh my goodness, I absolutely LOVED Loki in this episode and I’m sure Hiddleston had an absolute blast playing him.
All in all, the entire objective of this episode was to just have fun and that I did. And then…that ending happened!
I thank you for reading and I hope you have a great day. Next up, Star Wars: Visions.
The first trailer for Loki dropped last week and honestly, I’m still reeling. I honestly had no idea that the series was filming let alone so far into production that we were able to get a trailer and a date announcement! (It’s been a great month!)
But…beyond the initial hype, there’s a small detail in the latest trailer that I haven’t heard people really discussing and that’s the idea that Thor and Heimdall could make an appearance in this series.
Toward the end of the trailer we see a different version of the God of Mischief; a slick-haired Tom Hiddleston interpretation of the character wearing a pair of black shades and a suit and immediately fans were distracted. He started being dubbed in this look, D.B Cooper (who the heck is D.B Cooper?) and yeah…like I said before, fans were distracted. So distracted in fact that they missed the greatest bombshell of the trailer.
Loki says, “Brother, when I’m down…you better be ready.”
Is this a blatant clue that we will get to see Hemsworth reprise his role as the God of Thunder in this series in a fun, exciting way? And if Hemsworth is returning as Thor, shouldn’t we get to see Idris Elba don the golden armor and yellow eye contacts once more to play Heimdall? In fact, we need everyone back. Anthony Hopkins as Odin and Rene Russo as Frigga. It’ll be fun!
Ooh, I’m excited for this series and whatever it may mean for the future of the MCU.
I thank you for reading and I hope you have a fantastic day.
Thor has lost a lot over the years. First, he was banished from Asgard and had Mjolnir taken away from him. Secondly, he lost his brother, Loki only to find out that he had lived and was now on a hellbent mission to take over Earth and be “king.” Then he lost his mother to a secret attack from some dark elves. Then he thought he lost Loki yet again in the fight against Malekith! Then he lost his father, Odin, who finally got weak and died which followed him officially losing Mjolnir as his super-evil sister Hela destroyed it. He was forced to watch his home, Asgard, get destroyed. He lost half of his people, watched his best friend, Heimdall die, and watched for the last and final time his brother Loki die. (Oh, and Jane dumped him.)
Thor’s story has not been easy but despite all of this loss he still remained a hero which this post will highlight. Enjoy!
“You Should’ve Gone for the Head.”
To understand the full scope of Thor’s depression in Avengers: Endgame we have to go back to the end of Infinity War when Thor nearly killed Thanos. He thought he had saved the day, that Thanos had been finished, but his aim wasn’t true, and Thanos would end half of all life despite his greatest efforts.
As you may know, there are four prominent Chris’s in Hollywood, all of which have starred in superhero movies; Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Chris Pratt, and Chris Pine. These four Chris’s have been in our eyeballs in some of the biggest blockbusters of all time for years and yet everyone has their favorite Chris. That’s why I thought it would be the perfect topic for this week’s Who’s Your Favorite?
Before Thor in 2011 Chris Hemsworth wasn’t a household name. The Australian actor, however, would immediately rise to Hollywood fame as he took a superhero popular among Marvel fans and brought him to the big screen in a faithful adaptation of the character. Plus, plenty of people were captivated by the actor’s impressive physique, which has been on full display in his various shirt off scenes throughout nearly every movie that he has ever been in.
