‘Thor: Ragnarok’ is still nearly a year-and-a-half before it’s released and we already have been receiving great info for this third film in the Thor franchise. It’s been almost two weeks since the confirmation of several additions to the cast, including Cate Blanchett (Hela), Jeff Goldblum (Grandmaster), Karl Urban (Skurge), Tessa Thompson (Valkyrie) and Mark Ruffalo’s Bruce Banner/The Hulk confirmed to appear. That right there is a great indicator that this film will be more of a team-up film than a solo story. Now we are hearing that this movie has some great surprises lined up for fans that will further establish the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
The film’s plot is still a mystery but we do know that the movie will follow the God of Thunder as he hunts to find the ultimate weapon, to stop Ragnarok and reset the world.
According to JoBlo, they have gotten their hands on some new character and plot details for ‘Thor: Ragnarok.’ The site is typically on point with exclusive news like this, but do take this lightly as the studio has not confirmed any of the following details…
The film will definitely have the Planet Hulk element in it, operating as a kind of mash-up with the Ragnarok story. How Thor ends up on the planet in question is unclear, but he will definitely be involved in some gladiatorial games run by none other than Jeff Goldblum’s Grandmaster. In terms of Hulk’s appearance in this portion of the film, he will be rocking the one-shoulder armor as seen in the comics, so expect him to be decked out in the familiar Planet Hulk look.
The report also revealed that Chris Hemsworth’s Thor will have a shaved head for a portion of the film. With adding Tessa Thompson as Valkyrie, she will obviously not be the blonde-haired Asgardian. It appears that this version of Valkyrie will have war paint on her face like many Native American warriors.
‘Thor: Ragnarok’ will feature new members to the cast: Cate Blanchett, Jeff Goldblum, Karl Urban, and Tessa Thompson. Among the returning cast members from previous “Thor” features are Chris Hemsworth (Thor), Tom Hiddleston (Loki), Idris Elba (Heimdall) and Sir Anthony Hopkins (Odin). Mark Ruffalo will also be reprising his role as Bruce Banner/The Hulk.
‘Thor: Ragnarok’ arrives in theaters on November 3rd, 2017.
Thor: Ragnarok is the third installment of Marvel’s Norse superhero franchise. The film will be directed by Oscar-nominated filmmaker Taika Waititi (“Two Cars, One Night,” “What We Do in the Shadows,” “Hunt for the Wilderpeople”). Kevin Feige will produce the film, joined by executive producers Louis D’Esposito, Brad Winderbaum, Victoria Alonso, Thomas M. Hammel and Stan Lee.
