Entertainment News for 4/17/17, including Thor and Star Wars

Last week was a great week for trailer drops!  Earlier in the week we got a new Thor: Ragnarok trailer that was lighter and more colorful in tone, much like a Guardians of the Galaxy kind of trailer.  Cate Blanchett looked great as the villain and we got glimpses of Jeff Goldblum’s character and a Thor versus Hulk battle at the end, featuring a classic line of dialogue that will become an instant classic.

During the Star Wars Celebration, a new trailer for Star Wars: The Last Jedi was dropped and it was darker in tone while still featuring all the classic Star Wars trailer bits.  It looks to be a very interesting chapter in the saga, especially with Luke Skywalker’s last line of dialogue at the close of the trailer.

I finally finished Marvel’s Iron Fist this weekend and I gotta say that I really enjoyed it.  The last few episodes really cranked up the action and plot and culminated in what will undoubtedly be the kick off to season two.  Having watched all of the Marvel series on Netflix from Daredevil to Jessica Jones and Luke Cage, it will be interesting to see how they all play together in The Defenders.  The individual shows already share characters, which makes them a fun little intertwined puzzle, but it will be most interesting to see how the main characters find each other and how well they play together.

Did you watch anything interesting this weekend?  Drop a comment below and let me know if there’s something I need to check out on TV!
