Thor in the MCU Recap: What You Need to Know Before You Watch ‘Ragnarok’
You’ve seen the awesome trailers and posters. You’ve read the critics’ reviews, which are calling Thor: Ragnarok one of the funniest and most entertaining movies in the history of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. So now you want to see it! Great! But you skipped the first two Thors because they were not so great. Uh oh. So what do you need to know? A lot, actually, and that’s why ScreenCrush is here to help.
The video above, from ScreenCrush’s Ryan Arey, condenses all of Thor’s appearances in the MCU, from Thor, Thor: The Dark World, The Avengers, and Avengers: Age of Ultron, into 10 minutes. In less than the amount of time that it would take you to read the entire Thor Wikipedia page, we’ll get you completely ready to enjoy the hilarious Thor: Ragnarok. You’ll learn who the God of Thunder is, why his relationship with his brother Loki is so fractured and complicated, and why Thor took that weird bath in Age of Ultron. (Okay, to be totally honest, we’re still not completely sure what all the Ultron bathing was about. But we’ll get you up to speed on everything else.)
If you enjoy this Thor recap video, we’ve got lots more videos and recaps coming in the future. In the meantime, don’t forget to subscribe to the ScreenCrush YouTube channel to catch all our future episodes. And you can watch more of ScreenCrush’s videos below!
