The second trailer for Marvel’s Thor: Ragnarok is here, and it’s got some pretty interesting moments. Like, for instance, Hulk talking. In sentences.
Hulk like raging fire
So, I actually like Hulk talking. I know that part has been getting some grief online since this trailer was released this past weekend, but I dig it. Don’t forget that the Banner-Hulk can indeed talk in the comics, and it’s very much like what we’re seeing here. And I think it’s a cool evolution for the Jade Giant.
There are also some seriously stunning visuals in this video, not the least of which involve the fire-giant Surtur and Cate Blanchett’s Goddess of Death – Hela. But even with all the cool stuff, there are some things that I’m not crazy about.
I get the feeling that Ragnarok is going to have a lot of humor.
No, that’s not right – I mean a lot of humor. For some fans that’s cool, desired even, but not for me. I don’t mind humor in a superhero flick, lord knows it’s something that almost all movies in the genre have a decent amount of. Hell, when one doesn’t it’s not looked upon favorably by the masses.
It just seems to me though, that Ragnarok might be almost all humor. And again, that’s not something that most fans might have a problem with. I dig a little gravitas in my comics however, and that carries over to my favorite comic-movies. It’s just kind of my thing, and probably why I love the Captain America films so much.
Also, does anyone else get the feeling that Hela won’t be in the movie for all that long? All the backdrops to her parts in the trailer look awfully similar. That might be just because she’s in Asgard, but I don’t know. And I’d be bummed if that was the case, since she looks like a very cool villain.
We’ll see soon enough I suppose, since Thor: Ragnarok arrives in theaters on November 3rd of this year,
