Thor: Ragnarok is just plain fun. It’s hilarious from start to finish with quirky performances & exciting action. Tessa Thompson is the MVP.

Loved ‘Thor: Ragnarok’. @TaikaWaititi did an awesome job. Movie is loaded with his trademark humor. Laughed beginning to end.

‘Thor: Ragnarok’ has a few surprises I didn’t know about. One of them is A-M-A-Z-I-N-G and possibly the funniest scene in any @Marvel movie.

— Steven Weintraub (@colliderfrosty) October 9, 2017

THOR RAGNAROK is hilarious & weird & offbeat & retro & sublime. Love how Marvel let Taika Waititi make a movie that’s Waititi-ish as hell.

Jeff Goldblum is glorious in Thor Ragnarok, but didn’t expect anything less. I mean look at this man.

— Kevin Polowy (@djkevlar) October 9, 2017

Jeff Goldblum gets to be Jeff Goldblum in Thor Ragnarok in a way that will very much please Goldblum fans the world over

— Ryan Pearson (@ryanwrd) October 9, 2017

#ThorRagnarok is the best Thor movie BUT still think it’s really good not awesome. Hemsworth, Hulk & Tessa all great, though. And Goldblum!

— Jim Voodooda (@JimVejvoda) October 9, 2017

Btw, #ThorRagnarok is solid MCU fun. Great music, Blanchett is awesome, looks/feels like an 80’s video game. Slight, but wholly entertaining

— Scott Mendelson (@ScottMendelson) October 9, 2017

Thompson is great too, a subversion of the “bad-ass” female action figure. At its best, #ThorRagnarok has an occasional GHOST PROTOCOL vibe.

— Scott Mendelson (@ScottMendelson) October 9, 2017

#ThorRagnarok is SO much fun I almost can’t take it. The best: Thor movie, Cate Blanchett scene stealing, Jeff Goldblum Goldblum-ing.

— Kara Warner (@karawarner) October 9, 2017

Also re #ThorRagnarok, pretty pls @Marvel @thorofficial gimme all the GIFs of Cate Blanchett & Tessa Thompson SLAYING their scenes

— Kara Warner (@karawarner) October 9, 2017

Thor Ragnarok is one of the funniest Marvel Studio movies thus far, definitely the best Thor film. Loved Mark Mothersbaugh’s score.

— Peter Sciretta (@slashfilm) October 9, 2017

#ThorRagnarok is a ton of fun! Self-contained MCU plot, but character work is awesome, and the adventure a thrill. Best of the Thor movies!

— Evil Eric Eisenberg (@eeisenberg) October 9, 2017

Hulk is once again the scene-stealer, and a lot of it is that he can finally talk. Great to see him back on the big screen. #ThorRagnarok

— Evil Eric Eisenberg (@eeisenberg) October 9, 2017

#ThorRagnarok is laugh out loud funny from start to finish. Stumbles a bit in the first act, but it triumphs when it gets weird with it.

— Haleigh Foutch (@HaleighFoutch) October 9, 2017

All the new #ThorRagnarok characters are knockouts, but Tessa Thompson walks away with this movie. All hail Valkyrie.

— Haleigh Foutch (@HaleighFoutch) October 9, 2017

#ThorRagnarok is magnificent. They added so much humor that goes perfect w the action. @TessaThompson_x is Badass @MarkRuffalo is incredible

— Xilla Valentine (@BlogXilla) October 9, 2017

#ThorRagnarok: a goofy good time. Easily the funniest non-Guardians MCU flick – EVERYONE in it is funny. Great music (Mothersbaugh), fights.

— David Daniel (@CNNLADavid) October 9, 2017

No. 1 @TessaThompson_x is hands down the best part of #ThorRagnarok. She rocks. Hope she’s New Avenger someday. Also Cate Blanchett has fun

— Gregory Ellwood (@TheGregoryE) October 9, 2017

As for rest of the movie it may be divisive. I thought a lot was hilarious (if not too long) but felt like I was only 1 laughing at times

— Gregory Ellwood (@TheGregoryE) October 9, 2017

A gay man’s guide to THOR RAGNAROK: Cate Blanchett as the villainess may be the first actress to deliver her performance entirely in GIF.

— Kyle Buchanan (@kylebuchanan) October 9, 2017

Take the fun Cate is having in THOR RAGNAROK, double it, and you get the fun Tessa Thompson is having. Swaggiest superheroine ever?

— Kyle Buchanan (@kylebuchanan) October 9, 2017

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.

Directed by Taika Waititi, 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.
