Thor: Ragnarok becomes a trend because fans say it is the best of Marvel

When Thor was introduced to the Marvel Cinematic Universe in 2011, many fans were thrilled by the adaptation by Kenneth Branagh, but in 2013 the sequel left much to be desired and little desire to see more of the God of Thunder. However, four years later Marvel managed to surpass its two previous installments with Thor: Ragnarok – 92%, a film that had a better reception among critics and a higher gross at the box office than its predecessors.

Now, more than three years after the release of the third installment of Thor, fans made it a trend, apparently for no special reason, but most agreed that it was one of the best films of its franchise . This opinion is shared by celebrities such as Guillermo del Toro, who in a 2018 Twitter thread placed it as one of his favorite superhero tapes; Quentin Tarantino, who called it “drastically” his favorite of all the Avengers saga; and Patty Jenkins, who called director Taika Waititi a genius.

Waititi, a New Zealand director known for his unique comedy style, had a chance with Thor: Ragnarok that in the past few Marvel directors had: exploit their creativity without being constrained by an enormous amount of demands and modifications to their ideas. The result was Thor’s most successful movie and a Marvel Studios fan favorite.

In Thor: Ragnarok The God of Thunder seeks to stop the Twilight of the Gods, the destruction of his planet Asgard and its people, but discovers that the kingdoms that were in charge of his father Odin are a disaster and the reason is that Loki usurped the throne. When they find the true Odin on Earth and he dies, his daughter Hela is freed, who possesses immense power and begins a plan to expand violently throughout the universe.

Despite many fans criticizing Thor: Ragnarok Because the tragic story he was telling was not taken seriously enough, the general public had little trouble accepting the twist that the God of Thunder saga took, because after all, they thought, it is based on a comic whose premise initial is absurd, argument that also used the director Taika waititi in an IGN video.

For those who have not been very fanatical of the comic tone of Thor: RagnarokSurely they will have found compensation in Avengers: Infinity War – 79%, a film that begins right where the third installment of Thor ends, and unlike this one, the threat of Thanos is taken too seriously, a villain who defeats the heroes without much difficulty and in the end manages to eliminate the life of half of the universe.

Those who prefer Waititi’s style will not have to wait more than a year to see Thor: Love and Thunder, which will show us what happened to the Asgardian superhero after Avengers: Endgame – 95%, will introduce new characters and bring some of the already known ones back. Here are some of the tuis that made a trend to Thor: Ragnarok On twitter:

Thor: Ragnarok is available on Disney Plus, just like the other movies in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, with a few exceptions like Spider-Man: Homecoming – 92% and Spider-Man: Far From Home – 82%, which belong to Sony and only share the rights with Marvel Studios.
