First THOR: RAGNAROK Critic Reactions Make It Sound Like Another Marvel Winner

This past weekend, Marvel Studios held its first set of screenings for Thor: Ragnarok, its third hotly anticipated movie outing of what has already been a terrific year for the studio. Though critics have yet to hit the ‘net with their full reviews, we have gotten a look at thee early viewers’ general consensus on Twitter, and it looks like the God of Thunder’s third outing will be yet another win for the MCU. (How do Kevin Feige and Marvel Studios manage to keep doing it?)

Taking a look at these tweets, there’s a lot of praise for the humor in Thor: Ragnarok, which should come as no surprise to fans of director Taika Waititi, who is known best for his comedic films like What We Do in the Shadows and Hunt for the Wilderpeople. A lot of comparisons are made to Guardians of the Galaxy as well, which is high praise indeed.

Even less surprising is that Cate Blanchett is also getting a ton of praise, because Cate Blanchett. We already knew she could play a great villain, as her wicked stepmother was one of the great things about 2015’s live-action version of Cinderella. Looks like she’s pulled off yet another legendary villain with Hela.

Tessa Thompson is also getting a ton of love as Valkyrie, adding yet another badass lady to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Do we see a future Avenger in the making here? Seems a lot of people think so.

With early reactions this positive, that means that all of six of the superhero movies released this years so far — that list including Logan, The LEGO Batman Movie, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, Wonder Woman, Spider-Man: Homecoming — will all have turned out to be big-time crowd pleasers. The pressure is on, Justice League!
