Thor: Ragnarok Trailer
Check out all the trailers!— Rotten Tomatoes (@RottenTomatoes) August 16, 2017
The second Thor: Ragnarok trailer arrived at SDCC 2017! Check it out!
Here’s the first teaser trailer…
This has way more of a Guardians of the Galaxy vibe than we were expecting. That’s not a bad thing at all. Forget Earth, Thor needs to be out doing cosmic stuff. With Led Zep cranking the whole time. This looks like a blast.
And check out this colorful poster, too!
Thor: Ragnarok Cast
Cate Blanchett is playing Hela. Jeff Goldblum is “the eccentric” Grandmaster. Tessa Thompson (Creed) is playing Valkyrie. Karl Urban is Skurge.
“The continuation of the epic Thor franchise will be powerful and unique, and with the additions of Cate, Jeff, Tessa, Karl, and Mark to the cast we have the makings of his most dangerous and heroic adventure yet,” said Producer Kevin Feige in a statement. “The sheer, raw talent each of these actors brings to the screen can’t be quantified. Having any one of them join the Marvel Cinematic Universe would be an honor, and having all of them is incredible.”
Sam Neill quietly joined the cast in a (wait for it!) still undisclosed role. “I’m not really allowed to say this and I can’t tell you what it is,” he told ShortList (the quotes come to us via Collider). “I did a couple of days on Thor just before I came over here. If I say anything else, Marvel’s secret agents — and they are lethal — will come and get me and probably my children, as well.”
Neill recently worked with Thor: Ragnarok director Taika Waititi on Hunt For The Wilderpeople. We have no clue who he might be playing, but feel free to speculate
Obviously Chris Hemsworth is back, too. But so are Tom Hiddleston as Loki (who will apparently have a much bigger role), Idris Elba as Heimdall, and Anthony Hopkins as Odin. Natalie Portman won’t appear in this one.
Mark Ruffalo will be along for the ride as Bruce Banner/The Hulk.
Thor: Ragnarok Plot
Here’s the official synopsis for 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 Hela. But first he must survive a deadly gladatorial contest that pits him against his former ally and fellow Avenger – the Incredible Hulk!”
There was a relatively recent Thor: Ragnarok comic by Michael Avon Oeming and Andrea Di Vito. It’s excellent, but among other things, it doesn’t feature the Hulk. Like many Marvel movies that borrow the names of the source material, this one is going to carve its own path. But that whole “twilight of the gods” thing will probably be part of it.
In an interview with Total Film, director Taika Waititi spoke about where Hulk and Thor will meet up in the new film. And as it turns out, it’s the planet Sakaar. “Sakaar was just an insane, far-off futuristic place which was the biggest shift for the film and these characters,” Waititi said, confirming the location’s presence in the new movie.
Again, this is the actual setting from Planet Hulk, and while it’s not being suggested that Thor: Ragnarok will be telling the exact story from the comics, it’s clearly drawing sizeable influences.
And why is Hulk competing in gladiator combat? That’s not entirely clear at the moment, but it seems that Jeff Goldblum’s mysterious Grandmaster is behind it. The Grandmaster is a virtually forgotten Marvel villain, and he was behind the Contest of Champions, which put a number of Marvel heroes in combat with each other. With a little squinting, that can work in Thor: Ragnarok…but don’t expect the full Planet Hulk treatment. Unless maybe Hulk stays out in space at the conclusion of this movie.
Oh, and Tom Hiddleston confirmed that Hulk and Loki will get their rematch. “Let’s not forget that it’s no secret that the Hulk shows up in Ragnarok, and the last time Loki and Hulk were in the same room didn’t go very well for Loki,” Hiddleston said. “So, he’s got a few chips on his shoulder, but it’s fun. You’ll see.”
