Thor: Ragnarok is one of two Marvel films released last year (the other being Spider-Man: Homecoming) that feel like they supplement their humor with story and not the other way around. For the often underwritten Thor, this was a huge boon - even if much of the film’s humor came from side characters like the rocky Korg.
Now, with the film’s script available online, fans can pick apart the film’s dialogue for all its best innuendos and one-liners. Plenty of potty humor, sexuality, and Marvel references slipped in and out of the quick-paced screenplay, so there’s a lot to pore over with the film’s synthy soundtrack queued up. Oh, and you can also experience the battle between Hulk and Thor along with all the other action in the film in its pure, written form.
But mostly, we’re here for the jokes. You can find the 129-page script on Disney’s website (linked here) in PDF form for easy downloading and perusal. This availability is likely linked to hopeful awards consideration, though until now the film (including the script) has been mostly ignored.
Beyond a few Critics Choice Award nominations and some love for Tessa Thompson’s Valkyrie, the newest Thor has seen a relatively dry awards season. However, by making the script available to fans (and voters), writers Eric Pearson, Craig Kyle, and Christopher L. Yost might have a chance to crawl out from behind director Taika Waititi’s gigantic neon-clad shadow.
