This ‘Thor: Ragnarok’ Fight Scene Synced With ‘Holding Out For A Hero’ Is Utterly Epic
The best fight scene somehow got even better.
The big fight scene at the end of Thor: Ragnarok is honestly one of the most kick-ass action sequences on film, and seemed to already be perfect cinema.
Yet somehow, beautifully, impossibly, some fabulous wildcard on the internet has managed to make it even better, and in order to do so, they enlisted a little help from eighties pop sensation Bonnie Tyler.
The scene in question features the big show-down between Thor and his estranged sister, Cate Blanchett, the Goddess of Death.
It’s a pivotal moment, because Thor learns to believe in himself, and discovers that you don’t need a hammer to be the God of Thunder, you just need a bunch of lightning.
There’s also a big fight on the Bifrost Bridge with other cool characters like Loki and the Valkyrie and Fenrir the wolf versus Hulk, and it’s all very epic.
But Taika Waititi’s GENIUS in this scene is holding the fight to the extremely on theme tune of Led Zeppelin’s ‘Immigrant Song’, which is about vikings having a fun fight. Let’s just refresh our memories and watch it again:
Already this is basically the perfect scene. Yet, Twitter user @solversonlou decided to sync the scene with the also very on brand ‘Holding Out For a Hero’ by Bonnie Tyler, and the results are almost too good for this world. I don’t want to over-hype it, but it’s perfect.

Perfect, right? Here’s a little bonus: someone also did the same thing with Britney Spear’s ‘Toxic’, and while it’s not as perfect, it’s still Britney Spear’s ‘Toxic’ so it’s very good.
