I saw #ThorLoveAndThunder.. It can’t exactly match Ragnarok’s visuals or comedy bombs, but Taika Waititi makes up for it with an emotionally mature Marvel movie. It’s also very interesting (Natalie is joking) and features one of the most amazing visual sequences in the history of the MCU.

#ThorLoveAndThunder It’s much more episodic than I expected. Deliver a big laugh. A very standard cookie cutter villain with Christian Bale. I want Natalie Portman and Tessa Thompson’s Buddy Cop comedy. Matt Damon has to go to Broadway. Post credits are EPIC! Pure fun. pic.twitter.com/2J5UQuHHSA
