I mildly like the previous Thor films (The Dark World is the low point of the MCU so far, IMO), so it's without much hyperbole when I say that the Ragnarok trailer is already my favorite Thor movie.

The Thor series is maybe the blandest one with multiple entries on the Marvel universe, and even among the one offs they seem fairly, I dunno, worksmanlike- even with its eccentricities ground off something like Ant Man had more flair- and it feels like Marvel maybe realized that. I suspect they also noticed that Chris Hemsworth is a phenomenal comic actor.

Goldblum is not clicking with me in that trailer. He just sounds bored and uninterested/uninteresting.

Hulk made me giggle, but I'm tired of their music choices for the trailers being as uninspired and boring as their movies.

Consider me excited. Although Hemsworth shows some decent comic timing in the first Thor (esp. the "we drank, we fought, he made his ancestors proud" line), I think he was a revelation in Ghostbusters, and this trailer will utilize that talent.

I was never a fan of the Thor comics, but I thought the first Thor movie was a totally unexpected hoot, and possibly the most visually inventive MCU movie as well. The Dark World was a dreary downer, but based on the strength of the first one, I know they can make this character enjoyable (for me, anyway), so I'm really looking forward to this one.

Comic news: Early response to Wonder Woman is the strongest of any non-Nolan DC adaptations, and Tom Hardy will be playing Venom with Ruben Fleischer directing

Interesting choices. It at least has me curious.

Zack Snyder has stepped away from post-production of Justice League in the wake of his daughter's suicide, and Joss Whedon will take over for him.

Good on WB and Whedon for providing a pathway for the Snyder's to deal with a family tragedy that best serves their needs.

Alamo Drafthouse held a women-only screening for Wonder Woman and faced some backlash. This comment from the theatre is hilarious:
Quote:
The Drafthouse is replying to many of the complaints. When one man asked if they had ever held a men-only screening, the Drafthouse said, "We've never done showings where you had to be a man to get in, but we *did* show the 'Entourage' movie a few years ago."

Nice. I was reading comments n Facebook and Twitter about it and it's surprisingly fun watching a bunch sexually frustrated misogynists get owned.

It's amazing how stupid some guys can be.

As a white male I have an understanding that I won't be catered to in this way because *the world* has catered to my class for hundreds of years. I'll never understand how other white males fail to grasp this.

I hope Alamo Drafthouse has similar African-American screenings next year for Black Panther.

But he was created by Americans for a primarily American audience, and will be starring in an American made film with an American lead actor in the role.

So what you're saying is you don't want David Oyelowo to attend the showing.

No, what I'm saying is you're picking a stupid fight over semantics. You found a little way to dig at my use of a more PC term, and just couldn't resist needling me over it.

So fine - I hope they have a screening for *black* audiences.

But you won't be happy with me saying that, because you dislike me, so mock away.

Perhaps so.

It often comes across differently. This is the only forum I go to that feels like I'm the geek walking into a football locker room.

EDIT: In any case, back to the point - Drafthouse should stick to their guns and ignore these complainers.

this is actually the case with these forums except the ones already occupying the football locker rooms are also geeks who thrive off the modicum of power they have online because they repeatedly get slammed irl

Come on guys I feel unpopular (and called out for being overly concerned with representation and politics and what have you) here too sometimes but let's not act like Knives is shoving people into lockers here. I don't think the intention was to mock the SJWness of 'African American' here, just a light goof on the fact that it's literally less accurate than 'black' at conveying intended meaning

In retrospect I don't think he was either. This forum simply makes me apprehensive and hypersensitive of any possible sleight.
