Any hopes of a solo Hulk film have been continually shot down time and time again, and it doesn’t look like the character will be getting one anytime soon. However, that isn’t stopping Marvel Studios from finding creative ways to incorporate Hulk story arcs into the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Rumors of Hulk appearing in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 supported the idea that we would get to see a Planet Hulk arc on the big screen. James Gunn quickly shot them down. But those rumors quickly popped back up when it was announced that Hulk would appear in Thor: Ragnarok.
We saw hints of Planet Hulk when we saw concept art of Hulk wearing his signature gladiator armor. Now after months of rumors and speculation, director Taika Waititi has confirmed Thor: Ragnarok will be using elements of Planet Hulk by saying audiences will be paying a visit to the gladiator planet Sakaar. Check out the full story below.
All of Marvel Studios’ films have a different tone and vibe to them, each of which makes them special and unique in their own way. But one particular title fans are interested in is Thor: Ragnarok. When the studio first premiered the new look of the title at San Diego Comic-Con this year, it got fans talking. Soon enough, we got a better idea of what kind of tone to expect when it was confirmed that Devo artist Mark Mothersbaugh was brought in to do the score.
The film will hit theaters next year, so expect Marvel to kick off the marketing campaign soon after Doctor Strange. But director Taika Waititi (What We Do in the Shadows) is getting a bit of a head start by talking a little about the film. Check out what he had to say below.
Avant-garde musician Mark Mothersbaugh became an icon of 1980’s rock when he helped found the offbeat band Devo and he has composed original music scores for over 170 films and television shows. He’s long been the go-to music man for directors such as Wes Anderson and the team of Phil Lord and Chris Miller, and now it looks he’ll be bringing his particular brand of quirky, energetic movie melodies to the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Mothersbaugh has been hired to provide the score for next year’s Thor: Ragnarok, which is currently filming in Australia under director Taika Waititi (What We Do in the Shadows). Chris Hemsworth and Tom Hiddleston, respectively, are returning as the heroic, hammer-wielding God of Thunder and his villainous brother Loki.

As 2014 is just about at an end, we take a moment at Geeks Of Doom to remember the fallen musicians who left us this year. A large array of heavyweights, cult heroes, pioneering figures, and sentimental favorites are among those who have left us in a physical sense, but the memories that they made in the past and the ones that each of their fans have in regards to them will never leave.
A list of some of our (and probably yours as well) fallen heroes is below.
