“Thor Ragnarok”, It is customary in the Marvel Universe that his films include at least one scene during or after the final credits; a gift for the fans that can be a joke or a teaser for an upcoming premiere. 'Thor: Ragnarok' is in theaters and we have been able to verify that the tradition is not broken: there are two scenes after the outcome of the film.
One of the two "extra" clips that includes this third installment of the adventures of the Thunder God is purely comical and needs no explanation; enjoy a little more of one of the secondary ones of the film. The other scene is more important because it is a teaser and although it is not clear exactly what it means, we can suppose it. Just in case, Kevin Feige, head of Marvel Studios, has confirmed what most fans thought.
Thor, Hulk and the survivors of Asgard escape from the planet shortly before their destruction and, in search of a destination, a new home, they set sail for the Earth. Loki is not sure that it is a good idea and exposes his doubts but Thor answers that everything will be fine ... just at that moment a gigantic and imposing ship appears before them, and that's where the scene ends. Of course, the grace of that turn is to end the tranquility and hope that Thor was trying to convey to his (adoptive) brother.
Feige has declared that the ship is well-known like The Sanctuary II and belongs to Thanos, the great villain of the Marvel Universe (to which now Josh Brolin gives life). The first "Sanctuary" was the asteoride we saw in the first movie of the Avengers, where we saw Loki reaching an agreement to lead the army of the Chitauri and try to invade the Earth. As we know, that plan failed and presumably Thanos will want to settle accounts with Loki.
There is a detail in 'Thor: Ragnarok' that can explain how the villain's ship finds the Asgard refugees. When Loki goes down to the treasure room to resurrect Surtur, he finds the Teseracto with whom he has already caused problems during 'The Avengers'; it seems clear that he does not leave it there to be destroyed and Thanos may have been able to detect it. That is to say, it advances the first encounter of the villain with Thor and, first of all, it is a teaser of 'The war of the infinite', where the group of superheroes will finally face this fearsome enemy. As you know, Marvel showed the first trailer of the next movie of the Avengers during the Comic-Con of San Diego and since then circulates a copy of the video that an amateur recorded with his mobile phone. In this preview you can see how Thor is floating in the middle of outer space when the Guardians of the Galaxy find him, so we can assume that Thanos seizes the Asgardian ship and expels the God of Thunder. Or he sacrifices himself to save the lives of his people. We will check it.
#4 A great release date: November 4, 2017
'Avengers: The Infinity War' ('Avengers: Infinity War') will hit theaters in May 2018. Before, on February 16, we will be able to see 'Black Panther' and presumably Marvel will take advantage of it in some way to continue preparing the ground facing the highly anticipated encounter with Thanos.
There is a good detail in Thor: Ragnarok, Marvel's last great production with the god of thunder, in which he tries to light a jet that has a password activated by voice identifier. He urges him to escape - he is involved in problems and various entanglements of the plot - and identifies himself as "the strongest Avenger". It doesn'' T work. And, considering how the previous two films have been with him as the sole protagonist, Thor might have fared better if he said he was "the most boring Avenger.
It's not the fault of the actor Chris Hemsworth, but Thor's films have been largely unmemorable; if only they are for the eccentricities of his brother Loki (Tom Hiddleston) and for being a strange choice for Natalie Portman (the ex-girlfriend of Thor, who now disappeared to some black hole narrative). Ragnarok strives to change that perception and achieves it, more or less, by consistently lowering the fumes to that muscular blond.
It is something that makes sense to do, for many reasons, among them that it may seem that superheroes are on the wrong side of history when they look like Aryan race caricatures. And it's not Thor's fault; so they drew it. But times have changed and a new conceptual look was needed, and not just to improve its appeal at the box office. Marvel could have resorted to something more dark and melancholy, but instead made Thor more fun and absurd. It looks good, at least for a while.
Thor has served well as comic relief from time to time, taking advantage of his identity as someone out of this world: he is a god (and he loves to say it), the son of Odin (Anthony Hopkins), and so on. During a good stretch of Ragnarok is a joke that makes you laugh.
