Thor: Ragnarok is not anime, it's a live-action comic book movie. But let's just pretend, for a second, that it is anime. And that this is it's intro.

In Taika Waititi's Thor: Ragnarok, there's a moment when Hela runs her fingers through her helmed mane, creating luscious tendrils of might and power - inspiring nearly every cosplayer in the world to wonder, "Holy crap, how am I going to create that?"
Now, one cosplayer has achieved the impossible, and is free to roam Asgard in her wicked handmade crown.
Few Marvel films have reimagined a character as radically as Thor: Ragnarok. Director Taika Waititi took the things fans already loved about the character, filtered them through a new visual palette and added more jokes than almost any other Marvel movie. The result is probably one of the most rewatchable films in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
The first trailer for Avengers: Infinity War, released last month, confirmed Thor's fate from his latest solo film: He lost his eye and is now wearing a patch. This reveal left a few fans surprised and a bit confused, as early photos and footage from San Diego Comic-Con showed Thor with 20/20 vision. Does this mean the God of Thunder is getting his right eye back sometime in the movie, or did they film scenes twice to keep Ragnarok's reveal a secret? The answer seems to be a lot simpler.
Hela's headdress from Thor: Ragnarok is the best thing to happen in film in 2017. It should win an Oscar. That headdress should be inducted into the Screenwriter's Guild. It's the queer icon of a queer icon.
Thor: Ragnarok has hit theatres - but its titular apocalypse is more than a casual allusion to the Norse mythology that Marvel's hero originates from. It's a reference to an event in the comics that has hounded the God of Thunder since his adventures first began. Here's everything you need to know about it before you see the movie.
Thor: Ragnarok is the third film in the God of Thunder's franchise, the fifth film in Marvel Phase Three, and the 17th film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. So even though it's something of a stand-alone story, you could probably still use a refresher on everything that's happened in the MCU that leads into the movie -- and the mythological event that spells not just the end of Asgard, but all the nine realms.
Russell Dauterman's work alongside colorist Matthew Wilson makes The Mighty Thor one of the most sumptuous-looking comics on store shelves right now. So when Empire Magazine got Dauterman to draw them a Thor vs. Hela cover for its latest issue, the artist produced something that truly can only be described as Thor-some.
The past two weekends, at two different conventions, Marvel has screened footage from Avengers: Infinity War. And each time, the first new scene in the footage, featuring Thor, gets a shocked gasp. At San Diego Comic-Con, io9 asked the director of Thor: Ragnarok about that moment and he gave a very curious answer.
The first trailer for Thor: Ragnarok is one of those trailers you never, ever forget. So, the cast and crew had a lot to live up to at Comic-Con, but the new trailer take care of at all. It's a two-and-a-half-minute ball of action, awesomeness, humour, and insanity that may be the most purely fun Marvel movie trailer we've ever seen, all courtesy of director Taika Waititi. Guys, Thor and Loki are shooting people with laser guns.
