The Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU)

Yes if they can make Thor the comic relief of the MCU I’m here for it, now that Chris Pratt is not in, he can take this more light hearted place and I trust Taika will deliver a fun movie, while not necessarily complex nor emotionally heavy.

Thor has always being the weakest link in the MCU for me, very hit or miss, I think they found the correct tone in Ragnarok and even helped Chris Hemsworth find his groove.

Whatever it is, it will for sure be better than the second one.
 
@Joe. and @Attis what do you make of them confirming there's a much, much longer cut that expands the story, has a lot more dialogue in places and seemingly connects some parts that are evidently disjointed and lacking.

Think it'd make a difference, or potentially be a bigger disaster? Keeping in mind that much of the movie is apparently improvised.

I'm going to see it Friday morning and I'm still excited because I adore Ragnarok, but some of the reactions are definitely lowering my expectations now.

I think it might have given some depth to some of the writing, and made it overall more plausible, of course - This and MoM definitely felt underwritten, but unlike the former I think the bones of this just aren't interesting enough for a compelling enough story. There wasn't big enough stakes for the grand plot they were going for (which I don't always mind, Black Widow and even the first Ant-Man have managed more insular stories more successfully).

There will of course be people who enjoy this (straights men will eat it up) but it just was not for me.
 
I think I also just have a very low bar when it comes to movies (George Clooney is my favourite live action Batman for example). Plus I have a decent amount of prior knowledge about all the characters before seeing them so that might sway it a bit?
Same, but I have a low bar for pretty much anything.
George Clooney isn't my favorite Batman though dddd.

Huh? He's still in it though?
 
As a character, I prefer Thor in his first 2 solo movies and the first 3 Avengers movies. I didn't like him in Ragnarok and Endgame.

MCU movies have always been hit and miss in the humour department, but most of the times the lame jokes are also quite harmless in the context of the movie. However, the humour in the Guardians movies and Ragnarok really aren't my cup of tea. So I'm definitely skipping 'Love & Thunder'.
 
I'm gonna have to wait until this is on VOD methinks coz no way in hell am I gonna sit in a theatre with a bunch of straight men when every review I've seen says this movie is nonstop jokes

Eh it might explain the story better, though the writing and production is still at fault for failing to craft a cohesive yet effective plot without sacrificing the runtime. There is so much sub-plot and dumb scenes that could be cut out (in particular that annoying ass GOD).

To me, a feel-good / turning off my brain movie doesn't has to be...this dumb. At least provides us some sense of conflict and tension, man. Multiverse of Madness with all its flaws is more fun to watch. There is a stake on the protagonist, like the murder of Kang's countless students and the Illuminati. What do we get in Thor ? A tease on a "death" of certain teammates which turns out to be...not happening because plot armor yay !
 
If the humor is anything like Taika’s Our Flag Means Death..i’m so here for this!
I’m more eager to see this than the next Guardians movie. Like has been mentioned, It has a better leading man in Hemsworth and a better director with Taika.

To be fair though, a trash can with abs painted on would be a better leading man than Chris Pratt.
 
Not me thinking MoM was mostly trash and this being hailed as worse. Marvel Studios need to come up with something real quick. The MCU was always chock full of blockbuster action of differing quality, but by and large adults could leave these movies going “hey, that was a good film” regardless of previous taste in/for superhero movies. There’s a magic in that first decade or so that they’re struggling with suddenly - arguably only with the established franchises. Shang-Chi was good, Black Widow was good (despite fanboy feelings) and I really liked Eternals too. It looked fantastic and was trying new things. If MoM and L&T represent returning to the classics… don’t!

To be fair this may only be a wobble, but it’s a big one. They’ve come back from worse, sure. And I’ve yet to see it - maybe I’ll love the…jokes? Whoever told Taika that Korg (and associated humour) was hot, fly, sexy etc and that he should run with it lied to him several times.
 
So I might be mustering the courage to go see this tomorrow. Not been out on my own in....years? And not been to a cinema since 2012-ish.
I'm home alone for nearly a week and I feel really isolated and lonely which isn't good for my mental health so I need this. I also need to see Chris's butt in mega wide screen, although I honestly doubt the scene will beat the one in Rush where he's spread out, butt up, on the bed.
