The first Thor: Ragnarok reactions promise another Marvel classic


We're just under two weeks away from the release of Thor: Ragnarok (remember – you can book your tickets here) – and the first responses have zapped online.

The glorious news is that critics have gone gaga for Taika Waititi's Thor instalment, praising its zany humour and retro 80s vibe. There are no full reviews yet owing to the press embargo but here are a selection of tweets from some of those who've seen it.

Collider's editor-in-chief says if you loved Waititi's other movies, What We Do In the Shadows and Hunt for the Wilderpeople, this new blockbuster is bound to win you over.

Entertainment journalist David Daniel says the movie rivals Guardians of the Galaxy for oddball humour (say what??) and that Mark Mothersbaugh's score is a blast.

Yahoo's Kevin Polowy is another critic who complements Marvel for letting Waititi loose on their universe. Are we about to get the weirdest and funniest film yet? It sounds like it.

Critic Germain Lussier says there's one particular standout performance...

Yeah, yeah, yeah. There's only one person we really want to know about – this is from Ryan Pearson telling us what we want to hear.

Well, there you have it. Now it's time to book your tickets for Thor: Ragnarok and get ready for the movie's release on 24th October.
