Do you know that Marvel put out two films this weekend? Sure, there was Eternals, however there was additionally the film all of us really care about, Thor: Love and Thunder. Directed as soon as once more by Oscar-winning humorous man Taika Waititi, the brand new movie has Chris Hemsworth’s musclebound thunder god being changed by a completely different musclebound thunder god: Natalie Portman’s returning Jane Foster, aka the brand new Mighty Thor.
Oh, however it’s not only a buff Natalie Portman that’s the large promoting level right here, of us! There’s additionally Tessa Thompson being the second first groundbreaking LGBTQ character within the MCU. She was a little bit miffed to share that honor with Eternals’ Phastos, Brian Tyree Henry’s homosexual alien whose innovations helped result in the creation of the atom bomb, however it’s nonetheless good to simply have a seat on the desk. To be sincere, it’s simply stunning to see that this billion greenback franchise with nearly 30 movies and 12 TV exhibits has lastly determined that gays will help flip a revenue. And homosexual aliens, no much less.
With a packed forged that features fairly a number of Guardians of the Galaxy, Russell Crowe as Zeus, and Christian Bale as new baddie Gorr the God Butcher, Love & Thunder is each extremely busy and but surprisingly private, even because it delivers one intestine buster after the subsequent. It actually lived as much as Waititi’s claims that it was “the craziest shit” he’s ever executed. And you’ll actually inform, as a result of the Compulsory Act 3 Combat is likely one of the greatest issues Marvel’s ever executed, definitely not an indication that they should change their construction in any respect!
The stunning factor about Love & Thunder isn’t the way it actually commits to Valkyrie’s quest for a queen by having an prolonged sequence the place she units up a Tinder profile, and even Jane Thor’s 10-minute exercise montage set to Scandal’s “The Warrior.” No, it’s that Marvel simply hasn’t actually marketed it. Because the sequel to Ragnarok, aka the Thor film most individuals would say they positively preferred, it’s bizarre how there’s but to be a single trailer or promo. Perhaps they’re doing a stealth launch so the Eternals can get their sea legs since they’re the brand new franchise. Or maybe it’s like with Titanfall 2 the place they suppose the 2 films can stand on their very own and received’t cannibalize one another, by which case, they most likely forgot how that went for Titanfall 2 within the quick time period.
In any case, we wanna hear your ideas on the film. Did you find it irresistible? Did you hate it? What did you consider these three post-credits scenes? Can’t consider it turned out Korg and Miek have been in a polycule with Beta Ray Invoice and Darkhawk! Tell us within the feedback under, we’d let you know our ideas, however for some silly motive, Marvel received’t let critics put out opinions till July 8, 2022.
