We are probably not going to get another stand alone Hulk movie due to an already overly crowed production schedule.  Yet and still, Marvel has figured out how to serve us some Planet Hulk action within a Thor movie.  Check the circle… Is that the new weapon that we saw Thor with in the Avengers Infinity War?


Does he end up taking it from the Hulk? How the hell does that come to be?!

Ugh… So remember in the Dr. Strange trailer, when he and Kaecilius have that exchange about the last name “Strange” and it was a good laugh, but in the movie, you already knew it was coming and it wasn’t as punchy in the flow of the narrative?! I think this moment screams out just like that one.  Could be fine in the final product but, I wish i hadn’t seen it.

If you live and breathe all the movie news ever like me (i.e. The Plug) you already knew Thor’s mighty weapon of choice was a goner… I just didn’t expect to see it in trailer #1.  I thought he was going to be “unworthy” of it’s power once more… but nope, Hela straight palm’s that mofo and crushed it in her bare hand.  Great introduction to a villain that will hopefully not be forgettable as soon as credits roll…



I’m a prick… but in that prickiness, I have a voice of discernment! Is this Thor 3 or Guardians 2.5?  The entire feel of the trailer is giving me Guardians vibes.  Remember when the original title card for Ragnarok came out?


This is all… intense and dark and someone is probably going to die and it going to be amazing!  Then Guardians did crazy numbers and the sequel looks to do the same.  Thor was transformed to…

This looks like some good times are ahead… a jolly ole romp, if you will.  I’m not against the new tone at all, I just don’t want all my Marvel movies to become THAT level of “the same”. Visuals look great.  No sign of Odin or Dr. Strange yet, so very curious how they will organically be introduced.  Love it, but the likeness to Guardians gives me pause.  Can’t give this a definitive thumbs up or down as I am…

…stuck on the fence…

PS – Hulk and Thor have been taking shots at each other for like… EVER! Give us a fight that rivals Hulk vs Hulkbuster! Don’t just play that scene for laughs! ~Thanks, TSP!
