‘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. (more…)

This would be her debut role on the big screen, and the rumor is somewhat backed by Marvel having said that they’re “looking to cast some great women in this movie.”   There are no shortage of female villains in the Thor-niverse, and Lainey Gossip is reporting that Marvel Studios will be utilizing this fact by including a major female villain in the film.  Read on for what the site had to say.

Let’s be brutally honest, neither of the Thor movies made so far have exactly been barn burners. While Iron Man 1 and made their marks, and Captain America: The Winter Soldier was a near universally-acclaimed film, neither Thor nor Thor: The Dark World have caused fans to walk out of the theater saying that they needed more of the God of Thunder right there and then. So maybe what Thor really needs is to shake things up for part three, and while many would loath to say it, maybe if Odin-son went darker, it might get some more attention. As fate would have it, that’s just what they’re saying about the upcoming Thor: Ragnarok. (more…)
