And yes, Chris Hemsworth, Tom Hiddleston and Jeff Goldblum are all very funny guys. I loved Hemsworth In Ghostbusters. Goldblum has made a second career out of being weird and funny.
You know who else is a very funny guy? Robert DeNiro. I still don’t want to see him in a comedy. Thor doesn’t need to be funny. He needs to be badass and wreck stuff with his hammer like he’s in a Dio music video. The opening with him destroying Sutur’s forces to “The Immigrant Song”? That’s the perfect Thor movie. It’s like Waiti knew exactly what to do, but decided to throw us a curveball. It was still pretty good, but it could have been so much better.
