Watch & Download Thor Ragnarok Full Movie Online
This article contains Thor: Ragnarok spoilers.
It was obvious from the very first trailer for Thor: Ragnarok that the Hulk was the Grandmaster’s chosen champion. After all, it’s how and why he ended up fighting Thor. But Hulk was far from the first champion of the planet Sakaar, and there are some pretty great clues about who the previous champions were.
Hulk takes up residence in an enormous tower that dominates the skyline of Sakaar. And that tower has numerous almost familiar faces carved into it. Those faces are almost certainly those of the earlier champions, and they’re all characters from Marvel history, some specific to Thor, some specific to Hulk, and others that are just…weird!
The first face (the one with the elephantine nose) is Man-Thing. Yes, Man-Thing, infamous for appearing in a comic known as, I shit you not, Giant-Sized Man-Thing. Down and to the right of him is Marvel’s Ares. Perhaps not coincidentally, Michael Avon Oeming, who wrote the comic book story that inspired much of this movie, also wrote a killer Ares comic.
On the left you will find none other than Beta Ray Bill. That’s a character we would all desperately like to see in a Marvel movie one of these days. And if it isn’t Bill himself, it could very well be a member of his race, but based on the fact that in the the animated version of Planet Hulk, it was Bill who fought Hulk rather than Thor, he would make sense here.
Down and to the right of Beta Ray Bill is the rarely seen these days Hulk baddie, the Bi-Beast (he’s the guy with two faces). The bottom two faces are actually little-known Hulk villain Dark-Crawler and legendary Jack Kirby created dragon Fin Fang Foom!
Don’t believe us? Watch the video for proof!Why are you reading this article and not watching Thor: Ragnarok on Blu-ray or DVD? Well, if it happens to be before March 6, then it’s because you can’t. But after that? C’mon! There’s recently been so much hype for the new Black Panther movie (rightfully so) that we almost forgot about Marvel’s last masterpiece. Well, I’m here to remind you why you should own this movie. GeekDad already offered up 10 things parents should know about the movie, but here’s 5 reasons you should add Thor: Ragnarok to your Blu-ray collection (that aren’t Taikia Waititi):The bright colors and distinct landscapes in Thor: Ragnarok are what Blu-ray was made for. Plus, like I learned in the special features, much of the design was heavily based on Jack Kirby’s artwork. (So much so that the mural in the back of the Grandmaster’s suite is actual Jack Kirby artwork.) Really, most Marvel movies have cool sets, but I don’t know of another movie as other-worldly and beautifully stunning as they are in Ragnarok.Ok, so they aren’t as long as I’d like, but being able to learn more about several key parts of the movie are an added bonus that you’ll find on the Blu-ray. There’s one looking at the strong female characters of Hela (Cate Blanchett) and Valkyrie (Tessa Thompson), one about bringing Thor out of the comics and onto the big screen, another about the evolution of Thor (Chris Hemsworth) as his character has developed over the course of the marvel movies, and more. Here’s one about Kirby’s impact on Thor, but there’s several great ones included in this release:The movie itself is hilarious, and if you like Guardians of the Galaxy-style humor you’re in for a real treat, but the special features are some added laughs you can only get if you buy the flick. In addition to the gag reel, you’ll also get to see a follow-up to the hilarious Team Thor short where we see Thor as an aloof roommate to average joe Darryl on Earth. This one finds Darryl with a new roomate in Jeff Goldblum’s Grandmaster.It’s hard to believe it’s been 10 years since Marvel started their cinematic journey with 2008’s Iron Man, but here we are. If you’re as excited as me to watch this Summer’s action-packed Avengers: Infinity War, then you may need a refresher on just how much has happened in the Marvel cinematic universe, and one of the bonus feature Marvel Studios: The First Ten Years – The Evolution of Heroes should do just that. The movie’s debut was just moved up a week and will be released on April 27, 2018, so start reviewing your history now, there WILL be a test!Ok. I lied. How could I write an article about Thor: Ragnarok and NOT include mention of Taika Waititi, whose creative vision and unique humor are so pervasive in both the movie and the bonus features of the Blu-ray. Not only will you get to hear Waititi’s director’s commentary where you learn things like the reason they didn’t color the Grandmaster blue (like he was originally in the comics) is because he was concerned audiences would try to connect his character from Earth Girls Are Easy, but you’ll also get a bonus feature dedicated to his portrayal of the scene-stealing Korg. Before Ragnarok, the New Zealander only had minimal exposure here in the United States, but after his out-of-the-park homerun with this film, you can bet you’ll see his name on countless blockbusters in the future.
