Thor: Ragnarok | A Marvel Cinematic Universe Rewatch

The Marvel Cinematic Universe rewatch is here! Josh Wigler (@roundhoward) and Kevin Mahadeo (@KevMahadeo) have launched “Everything is Super,” a new superhero and comic book focused podcast on Post Show Recaps, beginning with a full deep dive into the MCU.

For the next several weeks, Josh and Kevin will focus on a different film from the MCU, in release order. Up next: Thor: Ragnarok, which completely resets the trajectory of the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s most thunderous superhero. Josh and Kevin are once again joined by Mike Bloom (@AMikeBloomType) to talk about a new contender for the top spot in the MCU movie rankings, why it charts so high, despite a contentious final battle over… well, the final battle!

Coming next: Black Panther. Send feedback no later than September 2 by e-mailing [email protected].
