This week on End Credits we summon the lightening! We’re back, and so is the God of Thunder for our first deep dive into a Marvel movie in literally years. Yes, we’re reviewing Thor: Love and Thunder on this week’s show, and since we’re going back into the Marvel Universe, we’ll spend the first part of our show talking about our thoughts about the MCU’s future.
This Wednesday, July 20, at 3 pm, Adam A. Donaldson and Candice Lepage will discuss:
Matters of the Universe. By the end of the year, we will have reached 30 films in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, plus over 10 Disney+ series, and there will be more to come in 2023. Is the franchise becoming over-saturated? Is it lacking focus? Is there too much inter-connectedness? Not enough? And what characters do they introduce next, and how should they be worked into the universe? This week, we’ll offer our notes for the MCU (not that they asked for our advice).
REVIEW: Thor: Love and Thunder (2022). The Space Viking returns! In the 29th Marvel Cinematic Universe film, OG Avenger Thor returns to fight a truly frightening villain, and confront his post-Endgame fate in the universal pecking order. Adding some complication to this adventure is The Mighty Thor! Natalie Portman returns to the franchise with new thunder god powers as New Zealand’s favourite son, Taika Waititi, takes us on another cosmic trip with laughs and pathos. But can this movie stand up to Waititi’s last Thor, Ragnarok?
End Credits is on CFRU 93.3 fm and cfru.ca Wednesday at 3 pm.
