The God with the big heavy hammer, played by Chris Hemsworth, must face the Hulk (Mark Ruffalo) in a gladiator match, but that’s not his only task.
He’s imprisoned on the other side of the universe and finds himself in a race against time to get back to Asgard to stop Ragnarok, the destruction of his homeworld and the end of Asgardian civilization, at the hands of an all-powerful new threat, the ruthless Hela (Cate Blanchett).
Director: Taika Waititi (Hunt for the Wilderpeople, What We Do in the Shadows – remake)
Writers: Craig Kyle, Christopher Yost, Stephany Folsom, Eric Pearson
Also stars: Tom Hiddleston, Benedict Cumberbatch, Idris Elba, Jaimie Alexander, Karl Urban, Anthony Hopkins, Tessa Thompson, Ray Stevenson, Sam Neill, Jeff Goldblum, Stan Lee.
While I’ve kept up with the Marvel movies for a good while, the two that have so far eluded me are Thor and Thor: The Dark World, so I’ve still got around six months to watch those. At least this looks more of a laugh than the Captain America entries in the franchise.
Thor: Ragnarok is released in the UK on October 27th.
