Last year, Thor: Ragnarok became one of the best entries in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. There was plenty to love in the sci-fi comic book comedy directed by Taika Waititi, but easily one of the best parts was Jeff Goldblum playing The Grandmaster, the eccentric leader of the trash planet Sakaar. And according to Jeff Goldblum, it sounds like there’s a chance the brightly robed character who loves celebrating his birthday with orgies might return. Read More »

There are barely two weeks left until Avengers: Infinity War charges into theaters. The superhero sequel has already pre-sold more tickets than the last seven movies in the Marvel Cinematic Universe combined.

(Welcome to Road to Infinity War, a new series where we revisit the first 18 movies of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and ask “How did we get here?” In this edition: how the blend of Shakespearian drama and goofy comedy in Thor sets a new tone for the MCU.)
After a trio of relatively grounded sci-fi action flicks, the Marvel Cinematic Universe took its first leap of faith. Thor was the first Marvel film to go into production after Disney purchased the company in 2009, but its departure from its predecessors didn’t simply hinge on the brand name behind it. Where Iron Man and The Incredible Hulk helped established the politics of this world, Kenneth Branagh’s Thor redefined the visual and tonal language of the Marvel Universe as a whole, not to mention the fact that Marvel somehow convinced Kenneth Branagh to leave his personal stamp on a superhero movie.
The result, while messy from a character standpoint, strikes an unprecedented balance. It straddles two distinct tones, a combination that would eventually coalesce in 2014’s Guardians of the Galaxy, but lest we get ahead of ourselves, it’s the meshing of these two seemingly disparate approaches that forms the crux of Marvel’s first cosmic adventure, and what the film is at its core.
