Ranting At Marvel Studios

A copy of Entertainment Weekly arrived in the mail yesterday.  At first, I was excited to see the name “Thor” taking up most of the cover.  Another movie!  A tall guy that I did not recognize and two bad-ass chicks were on the cover.

As I read the article, however, my excitement quickly turned into disbelief then anger.


Thor Fan in “Adventures of Babysitting”

Since I was a little girl Thor was my favorite hero. Every superhero had their own movie (or two or five) it seemed, except Thor. Why didn’t Thor have a movie? This baffled me through childhood and beyond.

After YEARS of waiting, Thor is released in 2011. I must admit that he was worth waiting for. In 2013 Thor:Dark World was even more exciting.  (Is it hot in here, or is it me?)

It is Definitely Hot in Here

I will be boycotting Thor:Ragnarok.  I couldn’t bear to watch the horror unfold. The Entertainment Weekly reporter, Tim Stack, put it, “Sometimes even superheroes need a makeover”.

Maybe other superheros, Tim.  But  NOT  Thor. NO, NO, NO!!  My stunningly handsome hero now looks like every other rugged blond actor popping up in Hollywood lately. You know, the leading men in action movies who have short military style haircuts and have between a 3-day and 3-month growth of facial hair? I get most of their names mixed up because they all look the same. Thor should never look the same! Why doesn’t this new director, Taika Waititi, get that?

Give Loki a makeover! He still has his greasy flat hair. Shave his head or given him a spiky mohawk and spare his brother.

Ruining Thor’s looks was not enough for this crazy guy. He took Thor’s girlfriend AND his trusty hammer away from him. Then, a road-trip with (wait for it …  ) the Hulk is on the agenda.

Ha!  Thor and Hulk on a road-trip does sound fun, even I can see that. Who knows – I may even watch the movie someday. Out of curiosity, you understand.

But I am NOT going to like it.
