Earlier today, Disney sent out the official synopsis for the upcoming Thor: Ragnarok, in which the Asgardian will be pit against The Incredible Hulk. We took a look, and have got to say that this looks like it could be the coolest Thor movie yet!
Disney’s official statement was as follows:
“In Marvel Studios’ ‘Thor: Ragnarok,’ Thor is imprisoned on the other side of the universe without his mighty hammer and finds himself in a race against time to get back to Asgard to stop Ragnarok — the destruction of his homeworld and the end of Asgardian civilization — at the hands of an all-powerful new threat, the ruthless Hera. But first he must survive a deadly gladitorial contest that pits him against his former ally and fellow Avenger — the Incredible Hulk.”
It seems that the writers have adapted portions of the ‘Planet Hulk’ story arc into this film, so it will be interesting to see where they take the characters. Chris Hemsworth (as Thor), Tom Hiddleston (as Loki), Idris Elba (as Heimdall) and Anthony Hopkins (as Odin) are all signed on to reprise their roles, while Cate Blanchett (as Hela), Jeff Goldblum (as Grandmaster), Karl Urban (as Skurge) and Tessa Thompson (as Valkyrie) are all set to show off new MCU characters. Veteran actor Sam Neill has even been rumored to appear in a yet-to-be-revealed role.
While we’ve only really seen teaser trailers for the film (due out on November 3rd, 2017), this little bit of plot information gives us hope! What say you, dear readers? Are you excited to see the blonde god pitted against the Hulk? Let us know in the comments!
