Brace yourselves Geeklings!  Not too far behind our first look ever, we’ve got a first trailer!  Commence screaming with all your fangirl/fanboy might in 3, 2…

EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEK!

So many questions!  What happened to Mjolnir?  What happened to Asgard?  As Thor himself asks; “How did this happen?”  What’s the deal with Hela?  How does Loki fit in?  What’s with the Gladiator-type stuff?  How about the Hulk?  How did that happen?

Seriously though, when the Hulk showed up!  *SQUEAL*  “He’s a friend from work!”  Classic!

How about the fonts, with the neon colors and zooming across the screen?  Makes me think of those Sci Fi movies from a few decades ago (yeah, I know, I’m old)… which is probably totally on purpose, given they used a song from a huge 70s band.  Trying to go for a Guardians feel here?

And speaking of which, they FINALLY made use of “Immigrant Song” by Led Zeppelin.  That song has references to Norse mythology all through it.  I’m surprised they only brought it out now for something Thor-related.

What do we think Marvel Fans?  Awesome?  Meh?  Are we liking where this is going?  Post away!

Check out my last post on Thor to put holds on his movies (and to read more of my fangirling).  Keep your eyes peeled for more updates, and until next time, End of Line.

Week of Geek Breaking News: First look at Thor Ragnarok

Hi again Geeklings!

Some exciting news!  Entertainment Weekly, which is one of the flagships of pop culture magazines, is doing a cover story this week with a first look at the next Thor movie, November 3rd’s (day before my birthday!) Thor: Ragnarok (which, I must point out, is the THIRD Marvel movie we’re getting this year, when usually we only get two; Ragnarok comes after May 5th’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 and July 7th’s Spider-Man: Homecoming).

Now, brace yourself, because Thor’s… had a bit of a makeover.

WHAT THE HEEEEEEY?  HE CUT HIS HAIR!  WHAT?!  HE!  WHAT?!

Seriously, what?  His long hair has been a part of his look since the beginning!  It’s so viking!  What?!

Another serious point to ponder; where’s Mjolnir?  His hammer?  He’s got two awesome-looking swords, and that’s awesome, but where’s his hammer?  *GASP*  Has Thor at some point since we last saw him become… unworthy?  Say it ain’t so!  Don’t make me post the screaming-robot-in-the-rain pic again!

OK, moving on.  We’ve got 2 newbies in the cover; Cate Blanchett as Hela and Tessa Thompson as Valkyrie.  So cool!

And over the last 24 hours we’ve had more pics posted online.  Let’s look!

That’s Jeff Goldblum on the left as the Grandmaster.  Another pic of Thor on the right, looking ready to throw down.

Mark Ruffalo is back as Bruce Banner/The Hulk!  Benedict Cumberbatch will also be back as Doctor Strange (HEE HEE!)

But here’s my big question… what of my beloved Loki?  One of my most favorite of villains?  The one who forced the Avengers together in the first place?  One we haven’t seen in far too long?  OH NO, DID HE CUT HIS HAIR TOO?!

HE’S BACK!  HAIR INTACT!  HAPPY DAY!

I know he’s murderous and evil, but look at that face!  He looks happy!  It melts my fangirl heart!

So what do we think Geeklings?  We excited?  Do we like Thor’s new look?  Do we like the colorful look of the film in general?  Who are we excited to see again?  Who are we excited to meet?  Post away!

In the meantime, we have previous Marvel Movies and Marvel Shows for your enjoyment.  For Thor’s arc, you’ll want this, this, this and this (in that order).  And put a hold on Doctor Strange if you haven’t yet (keep an eye out for the end-credits scenes, *wink wink nudge nudge*)

Stay tuned for more Marvel news.  Let’s end off with this vid.  Yes, it’s from all the way back in 2013, but it’s still AWESOME and it’ll tide us over until we get a Ragnarok trailer.  Until next time, End of Line.
