Taika Waititi (he of the brilliant What We Do in the Shadows and the even better Hunt for the Wilderpeople) skippers this delightfully bonkers third outing for Chris Hemsworth's musclebound Asgardian prince. Things aren't exactly looking rosy when goddess of death Hela (a game and gothed-up Cate Blanchett) returns from exile, but even being banished to a remote junk planet and forced into gladiatorial combat can't keep our hero down. Before long's he formed a quite glorious odd-couple double act with AWOL Avengers pal Hulk/Bruce Banner (Mark Ruffalo), and the fightback is on. Tom Hiddleston returns as Loki, while newcomers include tough-as-nails warrior woman Valkyrie (Tessa Thompson) and Jeff Goldblum's Grandmaster.
