planet of peril

I’ve seen people criticizing how the Thor Ragnarok trailer is too much laughs and giggles and how Thor and Hulk showdown should be bloody and destructive, not Thor quipping and funny jokes…

Except, did you like forget the existence of all the other MCU movies?

This isn’t the comics characters, criticizing the scene without actually considering the context is just pointless

Thor and Hulk were friends the last time they saw each other, not enemies, so this reaction is completely in line with story and character progression.

Thor is stuck on the other side of the universe alone and defeated, his planet and home in peril, and suddenly he comes across his friend? Of course he’s gonna be so fucking excited and be like “YESSSSS!” because then he’s not alone, he’s got a friend, seeing Hulk is basically seeing hope that he can get out of this and all would be okay.

‘Beware of ascribing human feelings to aliens,’ Jack said. ‘It’s a classic mistake. They don’t think like us, they don’t feel like us, they don’t react like us. It’s hard enough working out what a cat is thinking, let alone something from another planet. Anthropomorphise at your peril.’
‘That should be our motto,’ Owen said. ‘I’ll get some T-shirts made up.

Soon I Will be Invincible (2008) 

“Doctor Impossible—evil genius, would-be world conqueror—languishes in prison. Shuffling through the cafeteria line with ordinary criminals, he wonders if the smartest man in the world has done the smartest thing he could with his life. After all, he’s lost every battle he’s ever fought. But this prison won’t hold him forever. 

Fatale—half woman, half high-tech warrior—used to be an unemployed cyborg. Now, she’s a rookie member of the world’s most famous super-team, the Champions. But being a superhero is not all flying cars and planets in peril—she learns that in the locker rooms and dive bars of superherodom, the men and women (even mutants) behind the masks are as human as anyone. “
