Today we are talking about the amazing, God of Thunder a.k.a Thor a.k.a. Chris Hemsworth.
Last Friday, November 3rd, the new installment in the Marvel Cinematic Universe blew into theaters. Thor: Ragnarok, is about an imprisoned Thor who “finds himself in a lethal gladiatorial contest against the Hulk, his former ally. Thor must fight for survival and race against time to prevent the all-powerful Hela from destroying his home and the Asgardian civilization,” according to IMDB.
With this new movie brings a new villain, Hela (Cate Blanchett), the goddess of death. They couldn’t very well have Loki (Tom Hiddleston) be the villain of yet another movie. The two brothers find out that Thor is not the first born but in fact Hela is and she was banished years and years ago. “The first image to be released from Ragnarok was concept art of Hela, antlers extended and standing with her back to the viewer as she prepares to unleash hell on the soldiers of Asgard,” writes Nick Romano, vanityfair.com.
Another hallmark of the movie was “Immigrant Song” by Led Zeppelin. The song appeared in the trailer and twice in the movie and it was practically a match made in Asgard, but how did they get the rights to a song by such a prominent band, Shannon Liao, theverge.com, discusses this. “It sounds like a perfect fit for Marvel’s blockbuster Thor movies about the hammer-wielding Norse thunder god, which is why Thor: Ragnarok director Taika Waititi was so insistent about getting it in his film — but landing the rights was no easy feat. It took the film’s music supervisor Dave Jordan the entire length of the production to get the go-ahead from Led Zeppelin, Waititi told Business Insider,” writes Liao.
