I Think We’re Getting the ‘Thor: Love and Thunder’ Trailer Soon!

Yes. After what has felt like forever I think we’ll finally be getting the teaser trailer for Thor: Love and Thunder this week. Here’s why.

Thor himself dropped this on his Instagram today and considering it’s Monday that means we’ll most likely get to see the teaser tomorrow or sometime this week.

I absolutely cannot wait to see this trailer and what Waititi has in store for us. Plus, I want to see Natalie Portman in action as Mighty Thor. I’ve been waiting for that since I saw her muscular arms in the behind-the-scenes photos which blew my mind.

This is very exciting news and I can’t wait to share the trailer with you all in the coming days. I thank you for reading and I hope you have a wonderful day.

When Are We Getting the ‘Thor: Love and Thunder Trailer?

In a little less than four months, Thor: Love and Thunder will be hitting theaters worldwide but it’s almost easy to forget it even exists because there has been next to no promotional material for the film since it was announced.

So, where is this trailer?! I know it’s coming out this month because it has to…right? And when it does I’m going to be excited. Even though I know the trailer won’t be too forthcoming, plotwise. I’m mainly thrilled to see Natalie Portman’s turn as Mighty Thor. That’s going to be awesome.

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a fantastic day.

I Watched ‘Free Guy’ and It Was Hilarious!

There are those movies that come out and it seems like it’s going to be really bad and instead the film is a sleeper hit. Free Guy is one of those films.

I won’t elaborate on the plot because that’s part of the brilliance of this new story but if you’re a gamer you’re going to really like this movie. I found myself guffawing quite a bit throughout the film and the end is totally wild and hilarious. There’s a reason why this movie got a sequel.

I’m giving it 91 or of 100 and 4 out of 5 stars.

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a wonderful day.

‘Thor: Love and Thunder’ Is Set To Be a Full-Blown Romance

I mean, it’s in the title. Thor: Love and Thunder, according to Taika Waititi, is going to be a full-blown love story which sounds intriguing, to say the least.

Marvel Studios has tackled a lot of genres but romance hasn’t been one of the franchise’s focal points. There have been some great love stories in the franchise; Tony and Pepper, Steve and Peggy, Wanda and Vision. But that’s honestly about it. That’s why I think it was kind of surprising to everyone that Loki featured a controversial but undoubtedly riveting romance between Loki and Sylvie considering that Marvel doesn’t usually do romance. But it was a nice choice for Loki’s story considering that we’ve already had so many years of content with him, how were the writers going to give him a new motivation outside of wanting to backstab everyone in sight and try to become king? Let him fall in love. Brilliant!

And now it seems that Marvel Studios is ready to tackle the subject of love again with Thor: Love and Thunder which is already looking to be a real treat. Jane Foster will become Mighty Thor, Valkyrie is the ruler of Asgard, Thor is hanging out with the Guardians of the Galaxy, Lady Sif is back to reprise her role in a Marvel movie for the first time since 2013’s Thor: The Dark World, and Christian Bale is making his Marvel debut as Gorr the God Butcher. The pieces are in place for a great story but the question remains: where will the film’s love story lie?

I already predicted two years ago when Thor: Love and Thunder was announced that the film would probably feature a love triangle between Jane Foster, Thor, and Valkyrie. But now that we know Sif is going to be in the story as well, maybe even she will be added to the equation.

As of right now we know that Jane and Thor parted on somewhat bad terms. They “mutually dumped” one another, meaning they may not be in the mood for rekindling their romantic relationship. In steps Valkyrie whose feelings for Thor have been muted so far but she may have different feelings about Mighty Thor. And Jaimie Alexander has already proclaimed on her Instagram a while back that, considering Valkyrie is looking for a queen, she wants to be said queen. So, yes. There is bound to be lots of love and thunder in this movie and I’m very intrigued to see how Waititi handles a love story.

I can’t wait to eventually see the teaser.

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a fantastic day.

My Thoughts on ‘The Suicide Squad’

Years ago I expressed my thoughts in my review of Suicide Squad where I pointed out that the next lame entry in the DCEU was a failed attempt at trying to recapture the magic of Guardians of the Galaxy. I even stated that James Gunn should be hired to remake the film considering that he has a knack for bringing wacky comic book superheroes (or in this case, antiheroes) to life.

Well, he was hired to create a reboot called The Suicide Squad and after two trailers my interest in this movie has plummeted severely.

There’s a lot of things wrong with this movie already but let’s start with the obvious; the jokes. James Gunn was canceled a few years back because some old tweets featuring him joking about pedophilia and rape were found.

Marvel Studios briefly fired him and then brought him back. In the time that he was fired DC Comics ran at him for the opportunity to direct The Suicide Squad.

This film, being rated R, is allowing Gunn to truly showcase his wackiness, or more nicely put in the trailer, his “horribly beautiful mind” and I’m not a fan.

The jokes are not funny and yes, a little more than a bit perverted. I mean, am I supposed to laugh at the idea of that dumb-looking Weasel thing killing 27 children? That’s horrific! Or John Cena wondering if the term Starfish is referring to a butthole? Is that supposed to make me fall back in my chair and guffaw?

Taika Waititi did the same thing in Thor: Ragnarok when he called the biggest gateway in Sakaar that Thor and co. had to travel through the “Devil’s Anus” but it was actually funny. The Suicide Squad‘s jokes are very, very cringe and that’s already a no-no.

Movie Review Flashback: ‘Jojo Rabbit’ Is Another Taika Waititi Must-Watch

There are two writer/directors that are making waves in both blockbuster films and thoughtful Oscar-buzz worthy movies. They are Taika Waititi and Rian Johnson.

In 2017, Waititi and Johnson got a chance to share their writing chops with blockbuster movies that moved the particular stories in bold new directions. Waitit helped direct and steer the third Thor movie, Thor: Ragnarok, in a direction that was both brilliant and very entertaining. Thor, whose first two previous movies are considered on the bottom of totem pole in the MCU desperately needed an upgrade and Waititi’s vision gave him a story worth caring about while allowing Chris Hemsworth to let his comedic chops shine.
