It seems that superhero movies that take a progressive social and political stance tend to garner great success.
This movie is more fun than the first Thor feature film and miles ahead of the disappointing “Thor the Dark World.”
Coupled with the fact that Valkyrie is a black female, she serves as a direct reflection of my own reality.
Throwing Thor into a sci-fi setting and seeing how he deals with his environment is cool. Seeing the Hulk and Thor in space is an awesome experience.
Utilizing Thor as a source of humor should’ve been present in the first two movies, and director Taika Waititi shows us what we’ve been missing.
