2017 looks to be a banner year in the movies and one of the most anticipated movies is Thor: Ragnarok. Not much has been revealed or seen about it till just now thanks to a Entertainment Weekly article.
Very loosely based off the Planet Hulk storyline, here is the synopsis for the movie :
“Imprisoned on the other side of the universe, the mighty Thor (Chris Hemsworth) finds himself in a deadly gladiatorial contest that pits him against the Hulk (Mark Ruffalo), his former ally and fellow Avenger. Thor’s quest for survival leads him in a race against time to prevent the all-powerful Hela (Cate Blanchett) from destroying his home world and the Asgardian civilization.”
In the EW.com article, we get our first looks at a short-haired Thor, Valkyrie (Tessa Thompson), Hela (Blanchett), the trickster Loki (once again played by Tom Hiddleston), the ruler of the Underworld -Hela (Blanchett) and the Grandmaster (Jeff Goldblum) along with behind the scenes shots of director Taika Waititi (Hunt for the Wilderpeople) in action.
Excitement is building as Waititi’s fresh take on the Marvel hero looks to have reenergized the franchise. The strong additions of Blanchett, Thompson and Goldblum looks like to make Thor : Ragnarok one of the most exciting movies of 2017
Thor: Ragnarok opens in theaters on November 3, 2017.
