From 1:55 of the video when the music starts playing until it stops its just pure greatness.

EPIC!


Yeah overall I rank this higher than The Wakandan entrance since it cut to the next scene after one attack.

The Bifrost entrance is my number one superhero entrance of all time.

His entrance in Avengers 1 where that thunder storm appeared and landed on top of the Quintet was badass too.

The audience was raring to go right from the start when I saw Infinity War on opening night in a giant, packed theater. When Hulk attacked Thanos they yelled and applauded, when Captain America showed up they got even louder, and they never stopped. However nothing came close to their absolute eruption when Thor landed in Wakanda. He had already been the best hero in the movie, and now he was here with his amazing new axe to save the day when he was needed most. Watching him arrive was more like being at a sporting event than a movie. But while the crowd was cheering for the god of thunder, they could just as easily have been cheering for Chris Hemsworth himself, who was giving a performance even more impressive than anything Thor did.

It’s easy to see why Thor was Infinity War‘s MVA—Most Valuable Avenger (Tony should make that his password). He not only got what seemed like the most screen time, he got the best screen time. He was the most powerful hero in the movie (he took the full force of a freaking star, which somehow feels underappreciated), he was bold and brave (even knowing what Thanos was capable of he went looking for him), he was super funny (insert any of his hilarious one-liners), he was an inspirational leader (like when he told Peter Dinklage’s Eitri, “I know it feels like all hope is lost. Trust me, I know. But together, you and I, we can kill Thanos.”), and obviously he got the single best entrance into a battle scene. Thor really Thunder God-ed the crap out of this movie. Of course, the character has always been brave, strong, funny, and inspiring. Still, this might have been the most powerful he’s ever been, and the most comfortable in his own skin. But even more impressive than the changes we saw in Thor were those we saw in Hemsworth. For the first time in his MCU career, he got to show off how truly talented he is as an actor (and without being overshadowed by someone else).

Hemsworth has been a great Thor from the start, and a huge, important part of the Avengers. It’s why he has become a genuine Hollywood A-lister. Yet he’s primarily viewed as an action star—funny, handsome, brawny, and with a real screen presence, but maybe not a “serious actor.” Certainly not the way Tom Hiddleston has been thought of, even while playing Loki. Hiddleston’s performance, while also requiring lots of fighting and humor, has been praised for its depth and nuance. Hemsworth is a great superhero, everyone acknowledges that. But Hiddleston? uts on monocle: He’s a great actor.
But Infinity War, which asked Hemsworth to do so much, is his true breakout performance. It gave him the chance to earn the recognition he has always deserved for being a great actor period, and he took that opportunity and outshone dozens of other co-stars. This movie asked him to do more than anyone, both physically and emotionally. He had to mourn, overcome that loss, lead and inspire, and carry major parts of the film emotionally, all while still being 100% believable as a literal god in the action sequences.

It’s a fantastic performance from the start, as we see when Thor screams in agony through a metal gag as he watches Loki die. But the scene that opened my eyes (or, more fittingly, eye) to how good Hemsworth really is was Thor’s conversation with Rocket about how to defeat Thanos. The discussion starts with Thor being glib and funny, but the more Rocket questions him, the more we see just how much pain he’s in as he finds a way to keep going. Thor tells the sweet rabbit, “I’m only alive because fate wants me alive,” and that Thanos will “be the latest to feel my vengeance” because “fate wills it so.” This is the bravado of the character we’ve always known and loved, a superhero willing to face any danger. But when Rocket asks him Thor what might happen if he’s wrong, we see something new in Thor. He’s broken, but strong. “Well, if I’m wrong,” he says, “Then what more could I lose?”
Suddenly a tear rolls down his face, and the almighty Thor is as vulnerable as any mere mortal. It’s a beautiful, heartbreaking moment, where so much is conveyed with so little. It’s powerful because it’s not the loud, brash, larger-than-life Thor; it’s quiet and human. And we see it via Chris Hemsworth acting against a CGI raccoon. He’s not sharing the screen with Tom Hiddleston, Anthony Hopkins, Cate Blanchett, Robert Downey Jr., or any other great actors in the MCU. It’s just him, showing he can carry the emotional weight of the story as well as he has ever carried his hammer.

In a movie with almost everyone in it, Hemsworth was asked to do everything, and he excelled at all of it. It’s no easy task to make an audience cry or laugh, let alone make one scream out in pure joy. But he did all of that. That’s why he was Infinity War‘s MVP. He’s always been a great Thor, but now we can clearly see that he’s a great actor, too.

More praise.

[This story contains spoilers for Avengers: Infinity War]

Asgard. The realm eternal, no more. Last year’s Thor: Ragnarok, which saw director Taika Waititi deliver a comedic take on the character Thor (Chris Hemsworth) ushered in a new era for the mighty hero. Rejuvenating what many fans and critics believed to be a subpar franchise when compared to the likes of Iron Man and Captain America, Thor: Ragnarok surprised at the box office with $854 million worldwide, a much higher haul than 2011's Thor ($449.3 million) and 2013's Thor: The Dark World ($644.6 million). Despite the film’s farcical nature, Waititi brought a share of significant changes that left the character better for it by the end. With his hammer Mjolnir shattered and his heavenly home blasted from the universe, Thor found himself facing loss unlike any he’d faced before. These blows came alongside the superficial changes of having his blonde locks and right eye cut away. Stripped of the things that defined him, Ragnarok taught Thor that Asgard wasn’t a place, but a people. As the captain of an ark filled with Asgardian refugees, Thor began charting a course for Earth to resettle, upon his father Odin’s (Anthony Hopkins) suggestion, in Norway. Thor’s future seemed clear. Then Thanos (Josh Brolin) struck, blowing those plans to bits. From the wreckage came the Thor that audiences have always deserved.

Avengers: Infinity War opens with a bang that not only sees the deaths of MCU mainstays Heimdall (Idris Elba) and Loki (Tom Hiddleston), but the decimation of half the Asgardian race, with the rest, including Tessa Thompson's Valkyrie, presumably lost in space for the time being. Infinity War doesn’t undo Ragnarok, but positions it as a prologue to a reality where plans don’t always come to fruition and the ability to escape is finite. The destruction of the Asgardians and the lost opportunity for New Asgard on Earth is a necessary creative move in a cinematic universe of teasers and planted seeds, and a reminder that this cinematic universe still has the ability to throw expectations entirely off course. Through Infinity War and Ragnarok, nearly all of the elements that made Thor the character he was when he first learned humility in Kenneth Branagh’s 2011 film are gone. Even his girlfriend Jane Foster (Natalie Portman) is no longer a part of the picture. Despite all of these elements being removed from the character’s identity and arc, the Russos use the changes that Waititi introduced to rebuild the character.

The blandness so often associated with Thor prior to Ragnarok is certainly no fault of Chris Hemsworth’s. While his time in the MCU before Infinity War hasn’t yielded the dramatic meat bestowed upon his peers Robert Downey Jr. and Chris Evans in their portrayals of Iron Man and Captain America, Hemsworth has always brought a commitment to the role of Thor. Despite the fact filmmakers, like Thor: The Dark World’s Alan Taylor, haven’t always had the clearest sense of what to do with Thor, Hemsworth has established his knack for both drama and comedy. While criticisms of the character have often centered on him being a bit of a bore, self-seriousness was never Thor’s problem. Before Ragnarok, Thor’s solo movies made him into a joke. Rather than allowing him to react to the humor of the world that existed around him, he was reacted against in a fish-out-of-water fashion that made the character feel trite and grasping for significance in comparison to his comic book counterpart. The only reprieve from this oafishness came in the form of Joss Whedon’s The Avengers (2012) and Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015), which showcased Thor as more than the jock of the team. But even then, Thor seemed somewhat ancillary in terms of forming an emotional bond with the other characters. This was, in part, because he was removed from the central narratives of both films for long stretches of time, often during these films’ quieter moments that allowed the relationships between these characters to be developed. Infinity War changes all of this by not only taking the character seriously but making him one of the emotional centerpieces of the film.

Unmoored early in Infinity War, Thor no longer simply faces the question of his place as a hero but his place as a god. This is particularly true when Thanos, with his Infinity Gauntlet, can claim the same title of godhood. It is in Thor’s unlikely pairing with Rocket Raccoon (Bradley Cooper), who he frequently refers to as rabbit, that offers insight into where the hero finds himself. Thor’s teary-eyed confession to Rocket, in which he discusses all of things he’s lost, is one of Infinity War’s best scenes and affords the character a sincerity that Hemsworth has rarely had the chance to play within the MCU. It’s a scene that wouldn’t work with just any character, particularly given Thor’s emotional detachment from the rest of the Avengers, save for Banner (Mark Ruffalo). But the scene works with Rocket because like him, Thor has been torn apart and left as a broken thing who must now struggle to redefine himself and forge a new family to replace the one he lost. When Rocket bestows Thor with a new eye, Thor is able to see a way forward.

Thor being taken seriously doesn’t mean he’s humorless. Infinity War allows Thor to show off his witty side with an understanding to the developments the character made in Ragnarok, but also an awareness that Infinity War is not a comedy and for Thor to mean something, he must have a sense of weight to him. His arc in the film allows him to finally mature. Ragnarok led to this maturation plot-wise, but not on an emotional level that saw him coming to terms with his father’s death and unworthiness, and the loss of his childhood friends, The Warriors Three (Ray Stevenson, Tadanobu Asano and Zachary Levi). On Nidavellir, the heart of a dying star, Thor forges a new weapon, Stormbreaker, with the help of Rocket, Groot (Vin Diesel) and the dwarf Eitri (Peter Dinklage). In taking on the full power of a sun, at the risk of his life, in order to forge a weapon to defeat Thanos, Thor displays his full godlike potential. No longer at the service of a hammer tainted by his father’s sin and hypocrisy, Thor uses science and magic to define worthiness and the tool befitting it, on his own terms.

It feels as though Iron Man and Captain America’s storylines are coming to a natural end. If they were to meet their ends in Avengers 4, it would be with a sense of suitability. But it feels as though Thor is just getting started, and the Russos have finally found and forged the character that four other filmmakers have sought to define over the course of five previous films. Thor’s films have barely scratched the surface of his lore. If the Russos continue their relationship with Marvel after next year's Avengers 4, they would be a natural fit to shepherd the character into the future. Their take on Thor, and those of screenwriters Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely, feels like one that stems from a love and understanding of the comics. It’s easy to imagine what these creatives could do with an adaptation of Jason Aaron’s God Butcher (2013) storyline that sees Thor across three periods of his life attempting to save the immortal beings of the universe from a hunter of deities. Not only would this provide a natural extension of challenges Thor grapples with in Infinity War, but it would allow for Hemsworth to play Thor as an elderly All-Father near the end of time. Beyond Aaron’s modern run, the works of Walt Simonson, Tom DeFalco and J. Michael Straczynski offer plenty of unexplored branches of the World Tree for the God of Thunder to traverse. Without Loki, without Jane, without Asgard and Odin, it’s ironic that Thor finally seems free to stand out. More than any other character currently in the MCU, Thor’s potential feels endless, because finally, after all these years, he’s being treated like he’s sacred.

I agree with a lot of this, although i do like balance, it's the way the movies turn out so good. I thought they portrayed THor as extremely powerfull, but with limits, he did get his arse handed to him in the first part of the movie. And i thought not showing Hulk was wrong, but i can understand it. Now, mostly i'm worried about the insistence from "Top management" in portraying Cap Marvel as uber powerfull, it seems to me something they can't stop talking about. I feels like Thor Et all. are going the way of the "Jedi". And it will mark the begining of the end for many fans who love these characters. If a "girl Power" thing becomes too obvious, it will break the chemistry so cherished by everyone.

My favourite Thor moment is in Age of Ultron: in the middle of a battle between the Avengers, Thor bursts in at the most dramatic moment, ignores everyone else, summons lightening indoors (!) and blasts the Vision to life. It showed how Thor has greater understanding and, ultimately, greater authority than the rest of the Avengers. He didn't even stop to explain what he was doing, and no-one could have stopped him anyway.

It feels so "godlike" when Thor acts "bove"the team during urgent matters no one else understand.

The Series of Films That Built Up To Thor Unlocking His Powers


Thor 1 - Odin said 'Whosoever be worthy, shall posses the power of THOR" which then placed Thor's power inside of Mjolnir until he's worthy to reclaim it. He did not say "Whosever be worthy, shall posses the power of Mjolnir"


The Avengers - When Thor is flying to and from the Quinjet there is a large thunder storm which Loki implies is coming from Thor and while Thor lands, smacks Iron Man, and picks up Loki the storm is still going on. All this time and Thor has not motioned or gestured with Mjolnir in anyway to summon lightning, which means Thor's anger at Loki caused an uncontrolled storm to rage indicating a lack of control of his powers.

Avengers: Age of Ultron - During the Vision "Scarlet Witch" gave him when she touched his head. Heimdall told Thor "You are a destroyer Odinson, see where your powers lead" (once again not "See where Mjolnir's powers lead" which shows Thor emitting a huge blast of lightning from his body without Mjolnir anywhere in sight. Later in the film Thor gets into a mystical cave pool and finishes the vision, while doing so he freaks out and sends out lightning wildly from his body. During the vision itself it shows Thor once again shooting a large blast of lightning from his hands like the earlier vision.

Thor: Ragnarok - Thor's hand starts to crackle with lightning after Odin's death, the skies start to get cloudy which gives Loki a worried look. In the Grandmaster's palace, Thor proclaims "I am the God of Thunderrrrr" and both of his hands "sparkle" with electricity much to the Grandmaster's delight. Later, during a gladiator battle The Hulk starts furiously pounding Thor into the ground and Thor has a vision of his father and his body completely envelopes in lighting. Then it all comes to a head at the end of Ragnarok, Odin says "The hammer was merely as a tool to help you control your power, to FOCUS it, it was never the source of strength."

Awesome, truly awesome stuff Marvel Studios.

While flying with a spinning mjolnir is iconic, i really appreciate how cool Thor looks when flying and hovering with Stormbreaker. The axe doesn't spin in any way, it just naturally ables Thor to fly at will which is great...

Did Worse - Only has one lightning filled eye (the trailer shot where he has two eyes is cooler), it didn't show Thor's initial super leap

Avengers: Infinity War Wakanda Shot

Did Better - Thor has two lightning filled eyes, lightning isn't just on Thor's body it's erupting out in all directions, that super jump at the beginning was badass

Did Worse - Music not being as epic and unique, Thor using a weapon, shot cuts away too quickly

Durability feat I forgot, Thor having city sized rubble dropped on top of his head in AOU. It didn't leave a scratch by the way, he emerged completely unscathed and unfazed.

This was several hundred tons of rubble at the least, it starts at 3:35 secs in the video.
