It has been awhile since moviegoers have heard from the Thor (Chris Hemsworth), but as “Thor: Ragnarok” opens, we find him in a sticky situation. His notoriously devious brother, Loki (Tom Hiddleston), has dominated Asgard, and his sister, Hela (Cate Blanchett) eventually attempts to steal the throne. While imprisoned on a planet on the opposite side of the galaxy, he is faced with the task of defeating the Hulk (Mark Ruffalo) in a gladiatorial match to win his freedom and save his people.

The last Thor movie was released four years ago, and, according to fans, the new addition to the franchise has been highly anticipated.

“My family, we saw the reviews on it and we said, ‘That looks nice,’” Nathan Stubbs (10) said.

Apparently, it has been meeting the expectations of many fans.

“I think it exceeded my expectations. Although it has action, it’s also kinda funny,” Franklin Hobbs (10) said.

Once again, Marvel has produced a well-received hero movie. From the action sequences paired with great music, to the flamboyant visuals and added comedy, “Thor: Ragnarok” has earned its raving reviews and number one spot in the box office during its opening weekend on the tenth of October.

As for the Marvel Cinematic Universe itself, fans cannot seem to get enough.  “Marvel as a whole…[is] not going away anytime soon. It’s still pretty amazing after all these years,” Stubbs said.

Although Marvel is on top right now, DC Comics has returned to cinemas with the anticipated “Justice League.” Apparently, “Thor: Ragnarok” itself has made approximately $500,000,000. There’s only one question in mind: who will win the battle of the box office?
