Hot take: Maybe we've been going about superhero movies all wrong.

 

Superhero movie fans have long been lamenting that destroying New York City over and over again gets boring, and can’t we focus on good actors who bring a humanity to these larger-than-life characters?

 

“The Late Late Show with James Corden” heard you, and the result of their “4D film experiment” might just be more charming than the already ridiculously charming Thor: Ragnarok.

 

The cast of the film, including Chris Hemsworth, Tom Hiddleston, Mark Ruffalo and new baddie Cate Blanchett, crashed a recent screening of the film to… re-enact the film live in front of the screen.

 

In case you’re not a Broadway fan, there’s a unique magic to live theater that movies just can’t replicate. Who needs to see Mark Ruffalo hulk out in CGI when watching him do it live is so much more intense?

If you thought Loki was good comic relief in The Avengers, then wait until you see Tom Hiddleston really let loose.

And you’ve got to be impressed by Cate Blanchett managing to infuse crushing a paper replica of Mjolnir with the same gravitas as her villainous alter-ego does with the “real” thing in the film. 

With all apologies to the incredible Taika Waititi, this might be the definitive Thor: Ragnarok.
