Thor: Ragnarok

Phase 3, Episode 5.

The third and final, wait...third of four Thor movies has arrived. It's Thor: Ragnarok starring Chris Hemsworth, Tom Hiddleston, Mark Ruffalo, Tessa Thompson and Cate Blanchett. Directed by Taika Waititi.

Mike and Pat dive into Thor's journey for the infinity stones, which has failed, and he's now forced to defend Asgard against the sister he never knew he had. Much like the GOTG movies, Thor: Ragnarok adopts the style over substance angle in storytelling and Pat is having none of it.

They talk about Hela being a supporting villain in her own movie, the Hulk movie we'll never get so it's in this one and how some of the comedy in this movie overshadows any dramatic moments for Thor and his family and the fact that he's about to lose his home world!

About the Podcast

Yet Another MCU Podcast
A deep dive into the influences and connections of the Marvel Cinematic Universe
Pat Whalen is a lifelong comic book geek.
Mike Field is a filmmaker and storyteller.

So naturally, a bulk of their conversations surround the world of the Marvel movies. Some consider the MCU one of the greatest achievements in modern-day filmmaking and others just think they’re comic book movies.

Each episode they'’ll tackle one film and discuss the differences between the comic book and what’s on-screen. They’ll explore the growth of the Marvel Cinematic Universe from its inception to present day and beyond. And have a little fun along the way. You may not have asked for it, you certainly don’t need it, but you’ll be happy they’re here…we think. This is Yet Another MCU Podcast.

I’m a storyteller.

My very first story was about a detective trying to solve the murder of his best friend. It was also my high school girlfriend’s homework assignment. She got an “A” and then dumped me. I knew even then writers get no respect, but I didn’t care. I fell in love with writing.

In the beginning of every story, there’s nothing. It’s scary. It’s intimidating. It causes the best of us to turn tail and run. Over the years, I’ve learned there’s no greater professional satisfaction than starting that story and seeing it to completion.

I've been creating content for over twenty years, handling all phases of production and including promotion and marketing. I've made web series, short films, feature films, commercials and industrials. I’m a fan of organization, collaboration and other people’s creativity. No one person has all the answers.

And now, I'm a podcast producer and host for Forgotten Cinema, Yet Another MCU Podcast and much more coming from Forgotten Entertainment.
