The Morning Watch: Jeff Goldblum Explains Ragnarok, Batman vs Elmer Fudd & More

Batman vs Elmer Fudd - Morning Watch

(The Morning Watch is a recurring feature that highlights a handful of noteworthy videos from around the web. They could be video essays, fanmade productions, featurettes, short films, hilarious sketches, or just anything that has to do with our favorite movies and TV shows.)

In this edition, Jeff Goldblum tries to explain the meaning of Ragnarok in the title of Marvel Studios’ upcoming sequel Thor: Ragnarok. Plus, comic book artist and writer Neal Adams created a radio play version of the comic Batman vs Elmer Fudd, and Gal Gadot stars in a pre-recorded Saturday Night Live sketch that was cut for time last weekend.

Leading up to the release of Thor: Ragnarok, the Marvel Studios social media team is keeping things lively with a little Jeff Goldblum to keep us occupied. The Jurassic Park and Independence Day star reads tweets from various fans trying to define what “Ragnarok” means, and he expands upon them as only Jeff Goldblum can. For more, check out io9’s assembly of the best Jeff Goldblum moments, and check out more from the rest of the cast right here.

Next up, comic book artist and writer Neal Adams decided to pay tribute to his new favorite comic book, Batman vs Elmer Fudd, but turning it into a half motion comic, half radio play. Adams doesn’t do a bad Elmer Fudd, though his Batman does need some work, and it’s a fun way to experience one of the more unique comic book offerings in recent memory.

Finally, watch this pre-recorded Saturday Night Live sketch that was intended for the episode hosted by Gal Gadot, but ended up being cut out of the final show due to time constraints. It’s actually better than half the sketches we saw during that episode, featuring Kyle Mooney and Beck Bennett doing a cheesy 90s rap while the world goes to hell around them.

‘Thor: Ragnarok’ Featurette: Cate Blanchett Is Fantastically Evil as Hela, Goddess of Death

Thor Ragnarok Featurette

Earlier this week, we brought you another interview from our visit to the Australian set of Thor: Ragnarok, this time with none other than Oscar winner Cate Blanchett, playing Hela, the goddess of death. The actress is the first female villain to enter the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and she’s clearly going to create a lot of problems for the god of thunder and his homeworld of Asgard.

So far, the trailers for Thor: Ragnarok have shown us the impressive powers Hela as she destroys Thor’s trusty hammer Mjolnir (though the setting of that scene has apparently been changed), and now a new featurette shows more of the villain wreaking havoc on Asgard, bringing Karl Urban into the fray as Skurge, and facing off with Thor himself.

Watch the Thor Ragnarok Featurette

The featurette in question reveals more footage of the reshot sequence where Hela destroys Mjolnir. As we previously recounted, the scene in question has been moved to an area with rolling green hills instead of a dark city alley. The new footage has Hela telling Thor (Chris Hemsworth), now accompanied by Loki (Tom Hiddleston) in this scene, to kneel to their new queen. Obviously, they’re going to refuse, and that’s probably not going to sit well with Hela.

Other footage on display seems to show Hela destroying some kind of mural featuring Asgard, Odin and more. This will likely come after Hela has already blasted Thor and Loki to Sakaar during a confrontation while in the middle of the Bifrost Bridge teleportation, allowing her to create chaos in Asgard with little consequences. As for how Hela returns to power after being banished from Asgard to begin with remains to be seen, but some have theorized that it involves another Infinity Stone.

Thor: Ragnarok is written by Eric Pearson and directed by Taika Waititi (What We Do in the Shadows, Hunt for the Wilderpeople), and you can read our interview with the filmmaker from our set visit right here. Plus, check out our full set visit report for even more details on the Marvel sequel.

Tickets for Thor: Ragnarok are already on sale, and you can buy them right here.

In Marvel Studios’ “Thor: Ragnarok”, Thor is imprisoned on the other side of the universe without his mighty hammer and finds himself in a race against time to get back to Asgard to stop Ragnarok- the destruction of his homeworld and the end of Asgardian civilization- the hands of an all-powerful new threat, the ruthless Hela. But first he must survive a deadly gladiatorial contest that pits him against his former ally and fellow Avenger- the Incredible Hulk!

Thor: Ragnarok hits theaters on November 3, 2017.

Full Thor: Ragnarok Plot Revealed!

Full Thor: Ragnarok Plot Revealed!

Full Thor: Ragnarok plot revealed!

A brief description was previously revealed by Marvel Studios, but EW now has a proper breakdown of the full Thor: Ragnarok plot, which picks up from the end of Avengers: Age of Ultron.

In the film, Thor will arrive in Asgard after hearing about trouble in his home world, and when he arrives he finds Loki’s style of ruling (while impersonating Odin) has led to some lapses in the rules and leads to the freeing of prisoner Hela. Thor and Hela naturally come to blows when they meet, which sees Thor “blasted” to Sakaar, described as “a barbaric planet ruled by the charming but nefarious Grandmaster (Jeff Goldblum).” There he meets Valkyrie, who is hiding out on the planet, and brings him to the Grandmaster to make him a gladiator, where he meets the most popular competitor in the arena, The Hulk, and loses his trademark hair and hammer.

“He’s much more of a character than the green rage machine you’ve seen in the Avengers movies,” Ruffalo said of The Hulk. “He’s got a swagger. He’s like a god.”

After the two Avengers reunite, the film turns into a road trip. EW reports director Taika Waititi took inspiration from movies like 48 HRS., Withnail and I, and Planes, Trains and Automobiles. Along the way, Benedict Cumberbatch’s Stephen Strange will make an appearnce and the film will lay the groundwork for the upcoming Avengers: Infinity War. Waititi did note to the outlet, however, that Ragnarok isn’t just a “set up” movie, but it reinvents the Thor franchise.

“A lot of what we’re doing with the film is, in a way, kind of dismantling and destroying the old idea and rebuilding it in a new way that’s fresh. Everyone’s got a slightly new take on their characters, so in that way, it feels like [this is] the first Thor.”

Thor: Ragnarok will feature the return of Chris Hemsworth as the God of Thunder himself, with Tom Hiddleston as Loki, Mark Ruffalo as the Hulk, Idris Elba as Heimdall and Sir Anthony Hopkins again portraying Odin. The film also stars Cate Blanchett as the death-obsessed Hela, Jeff Goldblum’s eccentric Grandmaster, Tessa Thompson as hero Valkyrie and Karl Urban as Skurge.

Kevin Feige will produce the film, joined by executive producers Louis D’Esposito, Brad Winderbaum, Victoria Alonso, Thomas M. Hammel and Stan Lee. The screenplay hails from Stephany Folsom, Craig Kyle, Eric Pearson and Christopher Yost.

Thor: Ragnarok will smash its way into theaters on November 3, 2017.
