THOR: RAGNAROK: HULK FINALLY SPEAKING EXPLAINED

Published

on

The trailer for the third installment in the Thor franchise, “Ragnarok” has definitely hit fans with some fantastic surprises. But none of which seem to be more surprising than Marvel finally allowing one of its most powerful heroes the ability to use his voice.

Though hulk through out the phrase “Puny human,” in 2012’s ‘Avengers,’ true fans of the comics have been wondering when the minds of Hulk and Banner would finally begin to crossover. Well it sound like we have our answer. ‘Thor: Ragnarok’ Director Taika Waititi has shed some light as to why the Hulk is now beginning to speak in Ragnarok, via a recent interview with IGN:

“I was always fascinated by the duality of Hulk and Banner, and seeing how their brains could be interconnected. Could we sometimes see Hulk and could we have a bit of Banner’s voice in there? Could we see Banner and have Hulk’s personality through there?”

Waititi went on further to speak about the internal struggle both characters [Banner & Hulk] will face, fighting for control of their shared body and mind:

“I think in this film we’re going to see that for the first time, where the two are fighting — really fighting this time — for control of the body. And Hulk talking, this idea of a more cognitive Hulk who can say sentences — that obviously has existed in the comics, but I think it’s something the fans want to finally see. It’s exactly what fans want to see, and what I wanted to see too.”

Mark Ruffalo also shed some light on Hulks new found ability to speak:

“Because he’s been the Hulk for two years now, he has the vocabulary of a two year old. So we have a speaking Hulk. Can I say that?”

It would appear that Banner has been in Hulk form for over two years and has picked up on how to speak. Which also explains why he is at the two year old level of speech. It should be interesting to see how this dynamic evolves over the course of ‘Ragnarok’ and ‘Infinity War.’

The Marvels Going Higher, Further, Faster!

Published

on

The Marvels (Marvel Studios)

Plot

Carol Danvers aka Captain Marvel has reclaimed her identity from the tyrannical Kree and taken revenge on the Supreme Intelligence. But unintended consequences see Carol shouldering the burden of a destabilized universe. When her duties send her to an anomalous wormhole linked to a Kree revolutionary, her powers become entangled with that of Jersey City super-fan Kamala Khan, aka Ms. Marvel, and Carol’s estranged niece, now S.A.B.E.R. astronaut Captain Monica Rambeau.

Brie Larson as Carol Danvers / Captain Marvel (Marvel Studios)

Movie Review (no spoilers)

Exceptional performance by Brie Larson, Teyonah Parris and Iman Vellani as Carol Danvers / Captain Marvel, Monica Rambeau and Kamala Khan / Ms. Marvel respectively. Samuel L. Jackson is back with a fury as Nick Fury and bringing the much-needed energy and comic relief as usual.

I highly encourage watching the following Marvel movies and TV series in order to thoroughly prepare for The Marvels.

  1. Avengers: Infinity War (2018)
  2. Captain Marvel (2019)
  3. Avengers: Endgame (2019)
  4. WandaVision (2021)
  5. Ms. Marvel (2022)
  6. Secret Invasion (2023)

The Marvels’ storyline picks up right after each of the main stars’ respective storylines and manages to combine their story arc into a unique and marvelous manner, keeping it consistent with some of the current events within the broad Marvel Cinematic Universe and developing our heroes from individual stars into a team of superstars. The costumes are aesthetically pleasing.

Zawe Ashton plays the part of Dar-Benn, the antagonist in The Marvels. I would have loved to see more of her character’s backstory and hope that we get to see more backgrounds being unpacked either through Marvel TV Series or even an television special.

The movie’s runtime is 105 minutes, making it the shortest Marvel movie in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The story felt a little bit rushed, considering a dangerous mission is underway to prevent world-level ramifications but no-time is wasted to deliver yet another masterpiece in the cinematic universe.

The story delivers a few unique twists, lots of humor and a few surprises. The movie definitely contains something for everyone, young and old, and I encourage you to take the whole family to experience The Marvels.

Teyonah Parris as Captain Monica Rambeau (Marvel Studios)

The Marvels is a story that keeps the golden thread, which is the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and still manages to peak higher, further and faster into the multiversal trajectory.

The trailer doesn’t spoil much, but as always, a secret awaits for those who eagerly pay attention to the Marvel’s trailers. My only worry is that usually key spoilers tend to emerge in the week following the release of the movie in the forms of updated sneak peaks and mini-trailers.

There is a mid-credits scene that you don’t want to miss, but no post-credits scene.

I rate this movie 4 out of 5. Really excited to see what the future holds for Captain Marvel.

Watch at a cinema near you!
