I quite disliked this trailer, because I find Thor shouldn't be (and doesn't work) as a comical character.
And what helps Spiderman Homecoming seems to be detracxting from Thor : Spidey's quips are in character, and most often they just convey his awkwardness and inexperience, they help building the character.

Thor is a force of nature, a god, and when he is funny it is unwillingly, because of the mismatch between this gravitas and the situation. Having Thor delivers 10 one-liner in two minutes, and take jokingly the destruction of Mjolnir and Asgard really rubs me the wrong way.

There is something lacking for me when it comes to the Thor movie.  I think Godji has it right.  The tone just seems wrong to me.  That said I do love Cate Blanchett.

Black Panther (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dxWvtMOGAhw) looks fantastic and interesting.  Love the fact that it is set in Africa.

Agree and agree. The Thor movies for me are a real mix and match of what they got right and what they got wrong. Never been inclined to re-watch them.

Black Panther (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dxWvtMOGAhw) looks fantastic and interesting.  Love the fact that it is set in Africa.

Should be good, he is an interesting character that I didn't know before seeing him in Avengers.

That looks interesting.  Looks like they are bringing together the different plot lines.

not movies, but i've been enjoying some of netflix's marvel series. had heard enough good about the defenders that i thought it might be worth a go, but also heard it was better to start with the individual series that lead up to that. have finished jessica jones and season 1 of daredevil. both decent. villains stole the show in both... certainly aimed at a more mature audience than the MCU movies, so don't watch with your kids. probably do season 2 of daredevil next, then either luke cage or the punisher. heard that iron fist was more or less the weakest leak in the group. should probably try to figure out if the order matters...

I never bothered with Iron Fist and I managed Defenders just fine.  You can find an Iron Fist summary on the net that will take care of the need.  Dare Devil Season two is uneven.  In particular I found Electra to be tough to enjoy in  the beginning (which is impressive since she is stunning).  The first half of Luke Cage is awesome.  The second half not so much.  Defenders is good, not great, but worth watching.

finished season 2 of DD, luke cage, iron fist, and the defenders. DD was good, the others were ok. iron fist wasn't as bad as i'd heard and seemed of a piece with the defenders. also seemed like pretty much a direct lead-in to the latter, so glad i watched it. none of these were as good as season 1 of DD or jessica jones. seems like these shows are only as good as the villains, and kilgrave and the kingpin were great. probably gonna go with the punisher next, and season 2 of jones comes out in a month or so. will be surprised if that's as good as season 1 but here's hoping...
