It take both humility and the ability to admit you’re wrong to be able to turn a movie franchise around in such a dramatic way as this. They’re traits absent in most high powered executives. Their egos couldn’t take it. And yet, some combination of factors at Marvel Studios, be it the astounding number of wins they’d been on for a while now or maybe just a rational human being finally got the ear of someone in a good mood.
Whatever the reasons, turning two of the weakest entries in the franchise, totally reinventing them and making one of the weirdest, most charming sharp left turn I can think of any movie franchise ever making is something Thor: Ragnarok needs to be celebrated for.
