Last Thorsday we finally got past Helaween and got to see Thor: Ragnarok!  We have a giant-sized episode with four gentlemen in the booth, Adam and Caleb, plus Charles Murphy and Chris Compendio from the site.  We talk all about the latest offering in the MCU, what we liked, what we didn’t like, and how the film sets up for next year’s Avengers: Infinity War.  We also take a quick look through the news to see what else is happening in the world of the MCU.  We have both a spoiler-free and spoiler-filled section in the review, and all other released MCU properties are fair game.  At the end, we have our contest winner and announce another contest!  So, lend us your earballs as we travel the nine realms for another episode of Marvel News Desk!
