"What are you, Thor, god of hammers?"

Directed by Taika Waititi, Screenplay by Eric Pearson, Craig Kyle & Christopher Yost, based on the comics by Stan Lee & Larry Lieber and Jack Kirby. Is this really the funniest superhero movie of all time? Does this herald the triumphant return of the action comedy? Does it take a magic hammer to strike the right balance between action and comedy?  

Logline: Imprisoned, the mighty Thor must fight for survival and race against time to prevent the all-powerful Hela from destroying his home and the Asgardian civilization.
