Every Thor: Ragnarok Easter Egg

Thor: Ragnarok is absolutely jam-packed full of Easter Eggs for both Thor and Hulk.  I caught a lot of them, but nowhere near as many as Screencrush did and they’ve created the comprehensive guide to secrets in Ragnarok.  So, obviously, SPOILER WARNING, and go try to pick them out of the film yourself a few times before giving this a go and seeing how many of the 29 you can find.

Movie Review: Thor Ragnarok (2017) *A Cosmic Comedy Epic Forever Changing the MCU*

Chris Hemsworth and Mark Ruffalo in Thor: Ragnarok

Thor: Ragnarok makes the MCU three for three in 2017.  Three excellent additions to the Marvel Cinematic Universe that could not be more different from each other, except that they all brought the funny.  Thor’s third solo outing is his best, ably directed by relatively unknown Kiwi director Taika Waititi.  If all you need to know is if the film is worth the rave reviews that it is getting: it is.  If you want to know if, unlike Guardians 2 and Spider-Man: Homecoming, if this film has big MCU plot twists in it: it does.  And if you just want to know how many post-credits scenes there are: two.  I don’t do spoilery reviews of MCU movies, but that’s all you need to know if you were on the verge about going or not.

Thor: Ragnarok Trailer #3 (2017) “Thor, Destiny Has Dire Plans For You”

In the third trailer for Thor: Ragnarok (also the Japanese trailer in which the film’s weird lettering makes sense for the first time), we get mostly footage from the first two trailers, but it does have a very new beginning featuring Doctor Strange.  We knew Benedict Cumberbatch’s Sorcerer Supreme would be in the film from one of Doctor Strange‘s end credits scenes last year, but he opens this trailer, which has a much more dire tone than the humor of the first two, by telling Thor that his fate has changed and destiny has dire plans for him.  Read below for the official synopsis.  Thor: Ragnarok hits theaters November 3, 2017.

Thor: Ragnarok Trailer #2 (2017) “Thor Like Water; Hulk Like Fire!”

This looks amazing….except for the 80s arcade lettering, which I don’t get, but this is going to be fantastic!

In Marvel Studios’ Thor: Ragnarok, Thor is imprisoned on the other side of the universe without his mighty hammer 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. But first he must survive a deadly gladatorial contest that pits him against his former ally and fellow Avenger – the Incredible Hulk!

Thor: Ragnarok will feature the return of Chris Hemsworth as the God of Thunder himself, with Tom Hiddleston as Loki, Mark Ruffalo as the Hulk, Idris Elba as Heimdall and Sir Anthony Hopkins again portraying Odin. The film also stars Cate Blanchett as the death-obsessed Hela, Tessa Thompson as hero Valkyrie, Jeff Goldblum as the eccentric Grandmaster and Karl Urban as Skurge. Also among the cast is Sam Neill, reuniting with Taika Waititi, who directed him in his previous film Hunt for the Wilderpeople, and his Jurassic Park co-star Jeff Goldblum. Finally, as teased at the end of his solo film, Benedict Cumberbatch’s Doctor Strange will team with the God of Thunder to deal with Loki.

Kevin Feige will produce the film, joined by executive producers Louis D’Esposito, Brad Winderbaum, Victoria Alonso, Thomas M. Hammel and Stan Lee. The screenplay hails from Stephany Folsom, Craig Kyle, Eric Pearson and Christopher Yost.

Thor: Ragnarok will smash its way into theaters on November 3, 2017.

Cate Blanchett’s 10 Best Movies

Cate Blanchett
Cate Blanchett is possibly the most versatile actress in Hollywood.  She’s played Queen Elizabeth (twice and been Oscar nominated for it both times), Katherine Hepburn, Elvish Monarch Galadriel, Bob Dylan, Cinderella’s Evil Stepmother, slain Irish journalist Veronica Guerin, disgraced American journalist Mary Mapes, and will soon lay low Asgard as Hela, the Queen of Hel (Vikings don’t use double “l”s for their underworld).  Any one of these parts, and the dozens more she’s taken on, could swallow an actress or force her into scenery-chewing characiture (I hate I’m Not Here, but her Bob Dylan is freaky).  She’s an actress you take notice of whenever she’s attached to anything.  She brought ethereal beauty to Middle-Earth and now she’s bringin Hel to the MCU.
