I've never gone by what critic's and reviewers (Rotten Tomatoes) say to go see a movie. I'd rather ask people from here if it's worthy or not of my $8 lol

I actually think Ragnarok is this year's Big thing for Marvel.

Critic's are down on GoTG2 from the first one will fans be? I think audiences have proved time and again a winning formula sticks. It's critics that get tired of them not fan's.

I would agree. We've seen so far that the best Marvel sequels - CA:TWS, CA:CW and IM3 - have all tossed out a significant chunk of what worked in the prior installment. Ragnarok has a new supporting cast, a new setting, and appears to be losing the rom-com tropes that dominated the first two installments. It's definitely the one to which I am most looking foward.

I don't care about critics or reviews, I already plan on seeing every MCU movie. I always watch them on the pre release night too.

I expect GOTG 2 to be a fun adventure and never expected it to out do part 1. Majority went into part 1 not knowing what to expect and had lesser expectations but had that wonder. The wonder is gone because we know the team and universe now. That doesn't mean the movie won't be good.

I'm confident it will be "stellar" so i'm not worried. I can even bet it is going to be the best Marvel movie of the year. Surpassing both GOTG2 and Spider-Man: Homecoming. #InTaikaWeTrust

I'll see it tomorrow and find out what I think myself, but it's currently at 85% on RT, which is a great score, so even if critics generally think it's not as good as the first they really seem to enjoy it overall.

Going into the theater with more modest expectations is never a bad thing either. High expectations only bring the risk of disappointment.

Regarding Ragnarok, I think that Waititi will have enough of his own style not to have it feel like just a new Guardians.

I honestly hope we will get something new between now and comic-con in 3 months time.

Still have no idea what this symbol is all about.
It's from the producer Brad Winderbaum on the set of Thor Ragnarok when they wrapped filming in November i think... Anyone one has an idea of what this could be. Apparently it was something important that they hinted at but didn't want to reveal so i guess it could mean something big in the context of the movie.

Even on the critical side of things the reviews are very good overall, just tempered a little bit, based essentially on the idea that this movie is not as fresh as the first movie.

That was almost inevitable, since the characters were completely unknown, and now they are not.

Anyway, I don't think it means much either way for Ragnarok in November.

Agreed. I think Guardians and Homecoming will be fine, but I could see Ragnarok being in a lot of peoples top 5 MCU films. Plus it could be setting up a lot for Infinity War.

They may well mirror Thanos/Hela (or Death) with Wanda/Vision.

But they won't have Thanos being rejected by Hela or Death as that would lead to him being ridiculed and not taken seriously.

I was reading an article about a lot of Thor vs Hulk battles and i found something very interesting and similar to what i have said before about Thor fighting against Hulk without mjolnir and needing to get some real upgrade in order to have a real fighting chance.

http://www.cbr.com/thor-vs-hulk-bigg...c-book-fights/
4. BERSERKER THOR

Quote:
In “Incredible Hulk” #440 in 1996, Peter David and Angel Medina brought a controversial moment in the fight between the two heroes. In the face of a terrorist attack from a group called the Alliance, the Hulk decided to avoid nuclear war by posing as their leader, the Maestro. In his anger, Thor (who had been powerless) slammed his hammer on the ground and got his powers back, immediately flying off to fight the Hulk.

The controversial part came when Thor said he had held back against the Hulk before, and went into this fight in a “berserker rage” that apparently made him stronger. Since Thor had many times put his full strength into his fights with Hulk, it made fans upset to say Thor could do any better. Unfortunately, this fight still turned into a draw when the U.S. military launched nuclear weapons at the two. Thor was thrown clear by Hulk, who was hit by the blast and survived.


Check out some of the art from that run... look familiar?
