With Thor: Ragnarok, Marvel seems to be attempting to capitalize on the humor found in James Gunn's Guardians of the Galaxy movies.
Will it work?
We'll have to wait and see, but the new Thor: Ragnarok trailer is Marvel's most viewed trailer ever and said to be one of the best.
I happen to like my Marvel Cosmic stories rather on the serious side (Annihilation), and while only from viewing the trailer, it does seem that Thor: Ragnarok will not be anything like the epic "Planet Hulk" storyline from the comics (other than the gladiator arena), which is a huge disappointment to say the least.
It seems I'm not the only one who isn't big on the goofiness found in Thor: Ragnarok as a fan went out and recut a "Dark Edition" Thor: Ragnarok trailer. Â Watch below.
Save the comedy for Ant-Man, guys!
