Subj: I would hardly describe the Thor visuals as "mundane".

Reply Subj: Re: Practically every comic can be said to have their "moments", but the overall theme of a particular comic is not encapsulated by sporadic moments.

    Even Batman has had some "trippy" stories. Spider-man, yup. But those titles, like Thor, can not be summarised as "trippy", the way Taika Waititi seem to think the Thor comics is about. Which brings up my concern on how his movie's overall tone would be. I mean...Flash Gordon???? Now that's trippy.

To each their own.  Personally I have always felt that Thor should have been more "trippy" in terms of visuals especially considering it has 8 realms outside of Midgard (which I have always felt Midgard should have been clearly defined as the entire 616 three-dimensional universe).

Only Dr. Strange should have been more "trippy" (again in terms of visuals).

Instead we were given for the most part mundane planets and mundane dimensions with mundane looking aliens or mythological creatures. with minor exceptions here and there.


It's based on mythology, it's meant to look epic. So the places and creatures of the 9 realms should be based (inspired) from the myths. But Thor's adventures in the Black Galaxy, or Negative Zone, or inside a Celestial...fine, make the visuals "trippy".
