A few weeks back, the screenplay for Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 2 was released, and nerdy-ass nerds like me were ecstatic because it’s rare that a Marvel screenplay ever finds its way into the hands of the hoi polloi.
Well, friends, get ready for another round of jubilation, because the screenplay for Thor: Ragnarok dropped this week. As I posted on Twitter:

For all those who wanted to read the Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 2 screenplay, now you finally can.
