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:
So, the #ThorRagnarok screenplay is now available and I'm as giddy as an Instagram model with a new Michael Kors bag.

For the uninitiated, here’s the Thor: Ragnarok synopsis:
Imprisoned, the almighty Thor finds himself in a lethal gladiatorial contest against the Hulk, his former ally. Thor must fight for survival and race against time to prevent the all-powerful Hela from destroying his home and the Asgardian civilization.
Like the Guardians script, this is an FYC edition, meaning it was released for awards consideration.
I have yet to really get into it, but from glancing at the first couple of pages, it seems like the script will have the same funny, irreverent tone of the blockbuster, which to date has grossed more than $300 million at the domestic box office.
Thor: Ragnarok was written by Eric Pearson and Craig Kyle & Christopher L. Yost. You can download it here.
