Thor: Ragnarok vs. Justice League: Which Movie Looks Better?

Marvel Studios and DC Universe have had quite the contest with their movies for years, with Marvel’s movies, of course, winning 100% of the time. But lately after the widely acclaimed success of Wonder Woman, the DC Universe has kind of been able to place their mark in the superhero world with a legitimately decent film while Marvel’s films this year haven’t stood up to the standard, financially and storywise, that they usually do. Guardians of the Galaxy was an unfortunately underwhelming sequel and SpiderMan: Homecoming, while it got positive reviews, didn’t make as much money as expected. Now it did end up becoming one of the highest grossing films this year but it took a long time to get to that point. Now Marvel Studios and the DC Universe have a movie coming out in November to directly combat each other and I’m excited to see how things play out.

The question is, so far, which movie looks more enticing to watch? Is Thor going to steal the show with his short haircut and rad new buddies or is Justice League taking the world by storm with their incredible assemble of beloved characters facing off against a seemingly unstoppable force? Here’s what I think.

Why I’m So Excited for Thor: Ragnarok

I know it’s not even a month until Thor: Ragnarok comes out but the closer it gets to November 3 the more excited I’m starting to get. It’s getting closer and closer to the days when Avengers: Infinity War will be the movie I’ll be waiting for and Thor: Ragnarok, I’m sure, will have a lot of nods towards that Avengers film. I’m also excited to watch this new Thor film because it looks so different than all of his other movies.

The Thor Ragnarok Teaser Trailer Is Here and it is Epic!

Thor: Ragnarok brought out some amazing exclusive photos for Entertainment Weekly about a month ago and ever since I have been waiting for some footage of this new installment into the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Well, the teaser trailer has finally arrived and it has made even more excited about this new Thor. Take a look.

Thor’s Hammer Situation

From what I’ve gleaned from the exclusive photos of the new Thor he no longer possessed his hammer which was a great new twist. The question I was left with however was how did he not have his hammer? Now I figured it was stolen from him and he would eventually reclaim it sometime through the movie. Nope, that’s not what was going to happen. Instead the villain of this film, Hela who is being played by the exceptional Cate Blanchett, literally made his hammer explode! That’s a way to start the first twenty or so seconds of the trailer. That one moment completely changes the entire outlook of this movie because what is Thor going to do without his hammer. It’s how he summons lightning, it’s how he flies, without that hammer he’s basically a regular guy in space. He’s got some work to do if he’s going to try to defeat this incredibly powerful villain.

The Action in the Trailer

Okay, there was a lot of stuff going on this trailer. There was Hela supposedly laying waste to Azgard which isn’t good. There was a spaceship flying towards some sort of colorful rift in the sky at one point in the trailer. There were soldiers firing alien guns, Azgardians fighting Hela, all in all there was a lot of mayhem in a short amount of time. The action sequences in this film are going to be superb and very enjoyable to watch, that is for certain. And to think at some point in this movie Doctor Strange will be joining the fray! I am ecstatic!! This is already shaping up to be the best Marvel movie of the year.

The Characters

One thing that makes a great movie are the characters and it looks like Thor: Ragnarok is sticking to that important rule. There was the new and improved Valkyrie played by Tessa Thompson who looks fantastic. I love that they didn’t show her character too much in the teaser so it can be a surprise for maybe later trailers or the movie. And the black leather outfit she’s wearing makes her stand out and gives her toughness that I’m really liking. Jeff Goldblum’s character, The Grandmaster, looked a lot more ridiculous in pictures than on the teaser trailer which is a relief. Of course it’s nice to see The Hulk again after so many years of him being absent in the Marvel universe. I can’t wait to see what happened to him. And then there was also Loki who looks shifty as ever. I don’t know if he’s the bad or good guy. I think he’ll probably be both because that’s just how he is. And Hela looks frighteningly incredible. I can’t wait to see just how much of a threat she’s going to be. And considering how powerful she seems will she die in this movie or will they just contain her and put her back where she came from? I guess I’ll find out in November.

The Overall Summary of this Teaser Trailer

I have only one word that embodies the essence of this entire new teaser trailer…EPIC! The musical choice was perfect. It gave it a Guardians of the Galaxy vibe but it wasn’t too light of a song choice. I loved the humor at the end of the trailer. It literally made me laugh out loud. The plot looks very interesting and I am excited! I am so happy to see that Marvel saved their best movie of the year for last. And like I said earlier in the post, even Doctor Strange is going to be in it! This movie is definitely in my must-see list for the year.

Here’s A New Look At Thor

Yes, Thor Now Has Short Hair

is (20)

This is so exciting! I’ve been waiting paitently for some news about Thor: Ragnarok since I heard it was coming out. There was an incredible tease at Doctor Strange joining Thor in the mid-credit scene for Doctor Strange which was great news but that was all. What was Thor going to be up to in this next movie of his? The last time we saw him he was going to search for answers after his vision in that pool. This past week Entertainment Weekly released the first pictures of Thor: Ragnarok (this was one of them) and I was stunned. Not only did Thor have a completely different hairdo (which I think looks much better) but as you can see on this photo he doesn’t have his hammer. Now I know why he doesn’t have his iconic weapon but I won’t spoil the surprise for you. If you would like to know just go to Entertainment Weekly.com and you’ll find out all you need to know about this installment into Marvel.

I was already excited about this new Thor movie but after this week it’s truly become the Marvel film I’m really anxious to see. I think it’s going to be very entertaining but of course I won’t know for sure until the teaser comes out. Hopefully that’ll be sooner rather than later.

I hope you’ve enjoyed this post and like I said earlier, if you would like to know more about Thor: Ragnarok go to Entertainment Weekly. They have lots of other cool pictures of characters in the movie that’ll have you even more excited. Until tomorrow, have a great day.
