The recent Disney D23 expo has some serious heavy hitting releases announced and as the Marvel universe has done in 2017 with Spiderman: Homecoming and Guardians of the Galaxy 2, we are expecting the ultimate finesse for the end of 2017- first quarter 2018 with Thor: Ragnarok and Black Panther; both of which are expecting to do crazy numbers and we are 100 percent here for it.
Haven’t been up to speed in the Marvel universe as of late?
Not a problem. We’ve got you covered on the next two “Major Key” Marvel releases at Play Your Way Network, with those epic trailers to match.
Thor: Ragnarok, like its preceding titles, has incredible visuals and an A list cast, with appearances from Doctor Strange, Odin and fight sequences with the Hulk for extra measure. With this third installment, Thor (Chris Helmsworth) is in less comfortable form as he approaches a new rival. The villian, Hela (Cate Blanchett), manages to destroy his legendary hammer and the rest of Asgard appears to be destroyed; leading up to Thor’s appearing on a new planet, Sakaar, where he must find his way and save Asgard.
(There’s always problems at home for ole Thor, huh?)
Its a swift change from his usual allure, not to mention a “new haircut, who this” dynamic, but seriously, the trailer is amazing. Check out its official trailer below. Thor: Ragnarok hits theaters on November 3rd, 2017.
Black Panther has been a much awaited release for quite some time, especially with T’Challa’s appearance in Captain America: Civil War setting the stage for this highly anticipated film. Chadwick Boseman stars as the newfound ruler of Wakanda in the premise of his father’s death in Civil War and in the aftermath of such, gives us a much more detailed look into the kingdom; a beautiful mixture of African traditional culture infused with crazy technical advances.
Super woke points, Marvel.
The main antagonist lies in N’Jadaka (Michael B. Jordan), whom of which was banished from Wakanda, harbors some serious resentment towards T’Challa and his late father, King T’Chaka. Other neighboring tribes spark resistance as well to the kingdom, leaving the fate of Wakanda at the hands of T’Challa and his A-list gang of allies. All in all, expect to see some crazy fight scenes, riveting visuals and for core Black Panther fans such as myself, some serious nostalgia for the woke-minded nerd in us all.
Peep the trailer and go check it out in theaters on February 16th, 2018.
