At first, any excitement we felt for a third Thor movie was…room temperature. But then the plot started shaping up, including a co-starring Incredible Hulk, successfully transforming another potentially dour Thor film into a cosmic buddy-film where the duo visits a derelict world and participates in gladiatorial games reminiscent of Marvel’s Hulk epic, Planet Hulk. And let’s not forget Thor (and Loki’s) quest for Odin on Midgard (that’s ‘Earth’ to you and me), the possible helping hand from Dr. Strange, and the introduction of Cate Balnchett’s Hela! And have you seen the costumes? They’re spectacular! Luckily, Thor himself, Chris Hemsworth, shared another image of himself in a slightly different costume, along with director Taika Waititi via Hemsworth’s Instagram account. OBSERVE!
Standing with those who are fighting to protect their sacred land and water. #nodapl #waterislife #mniwiconi @taikawaititi I would also like to take this opportunity to raise something that has been bothering me for sometime. Last New Year’s Eve I was at a “Lone Ranger” themed party where some of us, myself included, wore the traditional dress of First Nations people. I was stupidly unaware of the offence this may have caused and the sensitivity around this issue. I sincerely and unreservedly apologise to all First Nations people for this thoughtless action. I now appreciate that there is a great need for a deeper understanding of the complex and extensive issues facing indigenous communities. I hope that in highlighting my own ignorance I can help in some small way.
He’s supporting the sanctity of tribal land AND apologizing for dressing like….the Lone Ranger or something. Anyway, this particular ensemble looks very much like the Thor uniform concocted by artist Esad Ribic during writer Jason Aaron’s first few runs of Marvel’s Thor series. NEAT!
