At SDCC 2017 Saturday, after dropping a few nuggets of news for Ant-Man And The Wasp and Captain Marvel, Director Taika Waititi, Chris Hemsworth, Tom Hiddleston, Mark Ruffalo, Cate Blanchette, Jeff Goldblum, Tessa Thompson, Karl Urban, and, Rachel House all walked out to talk about Thor: Ragnarok. If House’s name sounds a bit unfamiliar, she’s a bit of a last minute announcement, if you haven’t seen Waititi’s, The Hunt For Wilderpeople. But if you have, then the casting makes a lot of sense as she has appeared in four of Watiti’s films.
Check out what else they had to say at San Diego Comic-Con and the new trailer below.
A lot has gone on since we last saw Thor (Chris Hemsworth). Towards the end of Doctor Strange, it was revealed that he was seeking help from the Sorcerer Supreme to find his father.
How all of this happened is unclear, but we do know Loki had something to do with it. And now more is being revealed about the film’s plot, plus some of the other films that have inspired Thor: Ragnarok, including Planes, Trains, and Automobiles. More below.
The Marvel Cinematic Universe has proven to be quite expansive as it has taken audiences to unheard of realms and unseen galaxies. That has always been what makes the MCU so much fun. Each and very film fits into its own genre while also being a part of a larger superhero universe. So we will get another taste of that in Thor: Ragnarok. A new set of images for the upcoming film has been released giving us our first look at what is to come with Thor (Chris Hemsworth) now having to fight in the gladiator arena while Hela (Cate Blanchett) devises a nefarious plan that could kill all life. We are also getting our first look at Tessa Thompson‘s Valkyrie as well as Jeff Goldblum as the Grandmaster.
There is a lot of movies to look forward to in 2017. A solo Star Wars is on the way, Spider-Man is coming home, and we’re getting another Thor sequel! Coming in November, Thor: Ragnarok is the third movie featuring Marvel’s Thor, played again by Chris Hemsworth, with several other stars reprising their MCU roles, along with new additions to the cast. The biggest addition this go around is actually the answer to a big question from 2014’s Marvel’s Avengers: Age of Ultron… “Where did the Hulk go?” We now have the official synopsis for Thor: Ragnarok, which answers just that.
Check out the official synopsis here below, along with a newly released set image showing director Taika Waititi with Hemsworth in full Thor regalia.
Marvel stirred up the comic book world last summer when it was revealed that Thor the Odinson would no longer be worthy of wielding the magical weapon Mjolnir and that a woman would take his place as The Mighty Thor. Fans have since been wondering just who the true identity is of this mysterious new Thor ever since. Well, that long wait is finally coming to an end as Marvel has revealed to the New York Times just who was worthy.
If you’d rather wait to find out for yourselves in Thor #8, which hits shelves tomorrow, TURN BACK NOW as this news is too big to not talk about immediately.
