You say this like we didn't just watch like, 3 or 4 movies in a row of Henry Cavill or Jason Momoa finding every flimsy chance to shed clothes.ratcheting up the ante in the male cheesecake arms race. Your move, WB/DC.
It was a blink-and-you-miss-it moment, but there was Thor's commemorative back tat to Loki that I was greatly amused by if that counts.I had wondered if we'd get a nod to Loki and what he's up to between seasons of his show, as this would seem the place to do it, but oh well.
I thought this was fine. Definitely a little suss, but these are Asgardian kids, so they're all individually stronger than most of the Avengers put together. And it was kind of like, prep work preparing the audience for Thor becoming a dad at the end, which a LOT of the movie actually was, tbh when you go back and reflect on a lot of the dialog and jokes and scenarios. Which in turn, is also probably about the whole Phase 4 theme of having the Avengers prep the Next Generation of super heroes to take over.Not super sure how I feel about Thor leading an army of literal child soldiers into battle, though I'm at least partially mollified by the little girl absolutely tearing shadow monster ass with lightning bolts from her stuffed animal's eyes.
I didn't interpret things that way. That whole situation seemed vague on purpose, and the way I read things, is taht she had extra new powers because it was part of what her dad wished for so she could protect herself in the future from the nasty bad-gods. At least, that will be my headcanon.since it seems to have brought back a simulacrum of Gorr's daughter rather than the real thing, maybe not.
I try to avoid the popular discourse following these kinds of movies because they almost never make any sense to me, so I'm very puzzled to hear there's critical backlash against this film. What's the jist of what's going on there? Is it just the general Marvel fatigue that's set in, in the last year or two? Movie critics are lazy, dumb, and cowards.

It’s not a moral failing to dislike a movie(game/show/whatever) and I don't see why you'd imagine the worst of people who do.
1.) Its not gay enough. That's True! It's not! But it's also a movie about two straight characters getting back together so... I don't really know what anyone expected.
Source: The WrapBack in 2019, the Marvel crew hit Hall H at San Diego Comic-Con and Tessa Thompson gave fans an exciting tease for “Thor: Love and Thunder.” “As new king, she needs to find her queen,” she said. “So that will be the first order of business.”
4.) Fuck Disney. HELL YEAH FUCK DISNEY!! I HOPE DISNEY FUCKING DIES!! IN A FIRE!!
To me, when someone says "best since _______" they aren't saying that person/thing is better than _______, just better than everyone else except ___________ between that time period. Which sounds like you agree with??? So I don't get your initial objection here.I mean, no one yet. Killmonger is the best, most well-realized one. Holy shit, that final moment.
I really liked how things went down in this movie. Gorr seems to have this respect for Thor as not like the other gods, and he can see with his own eyes that he cares for the non-godly and fights for them in ways he assumes gods don't/won't. All of this started out of his desire for vengeance. So freed from the Godslayer and presented with an opportunity to make anything happen, it felt suitable to have him decide to wish for his daughter back instead and be swayed by Thor's emotional plea. As for Thor's side of things, he went on this mission to save the gods, but ended up killing way more gods than Gorr was, and he couldn't even convince the lazy assholes to save themselves. So him giving up feels about right. He's already completely lost as a person. He finds purpose in wanting to protect and defend the people he cares about, but the person he cares about most is already going to die so fuck it.I kind of preferred the end of his arc in the comics; where he realizes that the Necrosword power has made him a God, and that, more than the lightning bolts and vicious beat downs, is what ultimately defeats him.
