Cool THOR: RAGNAROK







Briefly: There’s little info on this one at this point, but just one day after Marvel started to confirm plans for a third Captain America movie, a third Thor film is going into motion. One of the first key players is chosen from within Marvel’s offices.
Craig Kyle, writer and producer for many of Marvel’s animated efforts, a producer on both previous Thor films, and who has been a VP of Production and Development at Marvel, will co-wrote Thor 3. His partner will be Christopher Yost, who did a polish on the Thor: The Dark World script.
There’s no information on their story approach, nor of a possible director. That said, Kyle has teased the potential of Ragnarok in interviews given over the past year, so that could be something to look forward to

Thor: Ragnarok Officially Annouced, Given a July 28, 2017 Release Date



During its special announcement today, Marvel Studios has confirmed that Thor will return for Marvel's Phase Three. The third Thor film will be Thor: Ragnarok, and will hit theaters July 28, 2017.
Like Captain America: Civil War, the title paints a very clear road for where the cinematic Odinson is headed. “Ragnarok,” a Thor storyline published by Marvel Comics in 2004, was significant for killing off Thor, Asgard, and all of its inhabitants for several years. The story had a lasting impact on the Marvel Universe, removing Thor and his supporting cast from Marvel’s publishing schedule for several years.
As Kevin Feige explained during the special event, Ragnarok is “The end of all things.” Ragnarok, a staple of Thor's Mythological Norse origins, closes the endless cycle of death and rebirth that all Asgardians endure. Essentially, it is the Armageddon for Asgard and all of its gods.
If Thor is to truly meet his end in Ragnarok, it only furthers the rumors that the third Avengers film, now confirmed as Avengers: Infinity War Pt. 1, would feature a new cast of Avengers in 2018.
However, star Chris Hemsworth still has two more Marvel movies to produce after Ragnarok, a per his contract with Marvel studios. Marvel could keep Thor off the board in the two Infinity War films, and have him appear in two more Thor films for Phase 4. But, the idea of Marvel not having Thor in its biggest film yet seems a little unlikely.

so they are not going with the Cyborg version of this, I thought that would have fit better to the current story lines.

Marvel Is Bringing THOR: RAGNAROK To Georgia Too


It seems the God of Thunder's (Chris Hemsworth) third standalone outing will be following Ant-Man, Captain America: Civil War, and Guardians of the Galaxy: Vol 2 in using the new filming studio in Fayetteville, Georgia, as its base of operation. Check it out after the jump!





Marvel Studios is seemingly taking full advantage of the newly built Pinewood Atlanta Studios, in which Ant-Man was the first movie to be filmed, in Fayetteville, Georgia. Captain America: Civil War just wrapped production in the peach state last month, and Guardians of the Galaxy: Volume 2 is scheduled to start shooting there in February next year. Now according to Twitter's informative Filming In Georgia, filming for Thor: Ragnarok will also take place at the Pinewood Atlanta Studios.

It was previously reported that Marvel Studios were considering shooting Chris Hemsworth's fifth turn as the Odinson overseas in Australia, but there is no word on whether or not that deal may come to fruition with Georgia set in stone. The Herald Sun reported late last week that the 2017 threequel would be the first movie shot in the Village Roadshow Studios that is currently being built in Oxenford, Australia. Apparently, the company is hoping to finish construction in time for both Thor: Ragnarok and Captain Marvel to use the sound stages before 2018's Commonwealth Games.

Starring Chris Hemsworth, Tom Hiddleston, Jaimie Alexander, Ray Stevenson, and Anthony Hopkins, Thor: Ragnarok is currently being scripted by Christopher Yost and Craig Kyle with no director yet attached, and is now set to be released in theaters on November 3, 2017. What do you think?

Taika Waititi in Negotiations to Direct Thor: Ragnarok








Taika Waititi is in negotiations to direct Thor: Ragnarok

Flight of the Conchords and What We Do in the Shadows helmer Taika Waititi is in negotiations with Marvel Studios to direct Thor: Ragnarok, according to TheWrap. The God of Thunder will again be played by Chris Hemsworth.
The site says that Waititi beat out former Ant-Man hopefuls Ruben Fleischer (Zombieland, Gangster Squad) and Rawson Marshall Thurber (Dodgeball, We’re the Millers) in addition to Rob Letterman (Goosebumps) for the job, and he will follow in the footsteps of Thor director Kenneth Branagh and Thor: The Dark World director Alan Taylor.
Waititi’s other credits include Eagle vs. Shark and he wrote the script for Walt Disney Animation’s upcoming Moana, featuring Dwayne Johnson.
Thor: Ragnarok will close out the Asgardian trilogy with a screenplay by Christopher Yost (Thor: The Dark World) and Craig Kyle (producer on previous two Thor films), and will continue the cliffhanger of Loki (Tom Hiddleston) having secretly taken the throne in guise of his adoptive father Odin (Anthony Hopkins).

'THE HULK' Rumored To Smash Into THOR: RAGNAROK


New and intriguing Thor: Ragnarok details, or rumors, have surfaced and they indicate a totally unexpected direction for Chris Hemsworth's third solo outing as Marvel's God of Thunder with Mark Ruffalo's Incredible Hulk said to be appearing. Check it out after the jump!





Given Avengers: Age of Ultron left the Hulk's whereabouts up in the air (or perhaps somewhere in the ocean), fans have been theorizing when and where we will see Mark Ruffalo's Jade Giant again, if at all, before his inevitable return in the two-part Avengers: Infinity War. Persistent rumors and speculation that Bruce Banner's angry alter-ego would show up Planet Hulk-style in 2017's Guardians of the Galaxy: Vol 2 have been dismissed, but we may now know what Marvel's planning.

According to Joblo, whose track record has been pretty reliable as of late, Mark Ruffalo will be joining Chris Hemsworth, Tom Hiddleson, and Jaimie Alexander in Thor: Ragnarok which will have the God of Thunder teaming up with the Incredible Hulk against what's considered to be the Norse apocalypse. Furthermore, it's said the threequel will feature a "distant planet that's not Asgard nor Earth," which is probably just one of the other Nine realms we have yet to see on the big-screen. There's no word on how much we'll see Bruce Banner versus the other guy, but Joblo reassures that "he's absolutely part of the supporting cast and will feature prominently." What do YOU think?

The Script For THOR: RAGNAROK Is Reportedly Marvel's Darkest Yet; Valkyrie To Appear?


Yesterday we heard a pretty exciting rumor about the Hulk potentially appearing in Thor: Ragnarok. Now a new report has revealed that Banner might not be the only new character on board - adding that the script is Marvel's darkest yet, and possesses an "apocalyptic vibe"...




Thor's had a bit of a rocky ride in the MCU so far. While both Thor & Thor: The Dark World have earned their fair share of fans, neither have really stunned audiences in the same way that other solo flicks like Iron Man or Captain America: The Winter Soldier did. Phase 3 could be the God of Thunder's time to shine though, and according to a new report from Devin Faraci (of Birth.Movies.Death), it sounds like Marvel are about to change up the series' tone - dramatically.

A few fans were left scratching their heads when Taika Waititi was brought on board to helm Thor: Ragnarok. The talented writer/director has acheived plenty of success - but predominantly in the comedy genre. According to BMD, this was the exact reason why he was hired by Marvel - "to bring a touch of lightness" to Christopher Yost's very dark script - which is said to have an "apocalyptic vibe". A bit of a change from watching Darcy & co. bumbling around on Earth, eh?

Faraci also delves into a few story details, so a minor SPOILER warning from here on out. He began by confirming JoBlo's recent scoop about the Hulk appearing in the threequel - and maintained that the character will play "a major role" as Thor & Hulk take "a cosmic road trip together, Hope and Crosby style". While on that journey, they'll meet the group called the Valkyries. Their inclusion could lead to major roles for both the former Defenders heroine Valkyrie, and her fan-favorite nemesis, The Enchantress. Faraci adds that he's less certain about these plot points, but resolutely states that Marvel are "looking to
cast some great women in this movie".

Both JoBlo and Faraci/BMD have a great track record when it comes to the world of Marvel scoops, but it's probably best to treat these as rumors for the moment. If they are true, what do you think of a darker Thor movie? Is it needed, or do you think the franchise was just fine without any apocalyptic vibes. And how excited are you to see both Valkyrie and Enchantress in the MCU?

Mark Ruffalo's 'Hulk' Confirmed For THOR: RAGNAROK


We heard the rumor a few days ago, and now it's been confirmed that Mark Ruffalo will bring his Green Goliath to Marvel's third installment in the Thor franchise, which will be helmed by What We Do In The Shadows director, Taika Waititi. More past the jump...



Well, you'll be pleased to hear that rumor was true: Mark Ruffalo will return as Bruce Banner and his slightly angrier alter ego in Thor: Ragnarok, which we recently found out would be directed by Taika Waititi (Eagle Vs Shark, What We Do In The Shadows).

Deadline just broke (well, confirmed) the news, though they don't mention any specific details or reveal how the Hulk will factor into the story - but Ruffalo and Chris Hemsworth seem like they have good chemistry, and their characters' interactions have provided some memorable moments in the Avengers movies so this should work out well.

‘Thor: Ragnarok’ Believed To Feature Thanos, The Hulk, Valkyrie

One of the most important films of the superhero franchise, “Thor: Ragnarok,” will feature some new characters.







(Photo : Kevin Winter Getty Images Entertainment) ‘Thor: Ragnarok’ Believed To Feature Thanos, The Hulk, Valkyrie

All eyes will be on "Thor: Ragnarok" when it opens in theaters in 2017, especially since the film is said to play an important role in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige revealed that not only is "'Thor: Ragnarok" an important Phase 3 movie, but it will impact everything that comes after." A lot of people speculate that he is referring to the biggest films from MCU - "The Avengers Infinity War."









There have been a lot of rumors on the new characters that will appear in "Thor: Ragnarok." From "Avengers: Age Of Ultron" and its mid-credit scenes, some believe that Thanos has possessed the Infinity Gauntlets and has his eyes set on Asgard for the Infinity Stones. The Mad Titan's quest for power will take him to Asgard where the Tesseract was being kept. There he is rumored to encounter Thor, and it is believed that an epic battle between the two legends will take place in that realm.

Chris Hemsworth once again reprises his role as Thor Odinson.

JoBlo has reported that Mark Ruffalo as The Hulk will also appear in "Thor: Ragnarok." The green giant will supposedly help fellow avenger Thor in protecting the Infinity Stones. Birth Movies Death reports that Thor and Hulk will essentially be doing a "cosmic road trip" together. During their travels the pair encounter the Valkyries, legendary female warriors of Norse legend.

Here is where another character is rumored to make her debut. Valkyrie, a Marvel super heroine will reportedly join the heroes.

And if Thanos, The Hulk, and Valkyrie are not enough for Thor to deal with in the movie, Loki (Tom Hiddleston) will be back. He has taken control of Asgard under Odin's guise.

Said to be the God of Thunder's most explosive solo adventure yet, "Thor: Raganork" is scheduled to arrive in cinemas July 28, 2017.

Mark Ruffalo Teases THOR: RAGNAROK; Hopes To See The HULK Face-Off With 'Bruce Banner'


Mark Ruffalo, in a recent interview, shared his excitement for Thor: Ragnarok, but instead of divulging too much about his role in the film, he instead shared something he would really like to see depicted on-screen, that being the internal struggle between Bruce Banner & the Hulk!




"Right, don't mention puny Banner..."

A little over a week ago, JoBlo broke the story that Mark Ruffalo (Zodiac) and the Hulk would make their next appearance in Thor: Ragnarok, which will reunite him with his Avengers co-star Chris Hemsworth (In The Heart Of The Sea), who, of course, portrays the God of Thunder. Taika Waititi (What We Do In The Shadows) is directing with a script from Craig Kyle & Christopher Yost. The sure-to-be epic film is expected to kick off production in June 2016 in Hemsworth's native country of Australia.

While chatting with the Huffington Post, Ruffalo acknowledged his role in Ragnarok for the first time by simply sharing his excitement to return: "I play Dr. Bruce Banner, and occasionally I turn into a big green, mean monster...(laughs)... I am excited to keep coming back to this role. I see a lot of space for it to grow."

When further prodded about which direction he would like to see the fan-favorite character grow, Ruffalo said something very, very intriguing: "I feel like there’s a lot of cool stuff to explore still, especially the relationship between Banner and Hulk. Hopefully, we’ll see the two of them in a scene together. That would be cool!"

I think "cool" might be kind of an understatement there because quite frankly, that would be one of the more thrilling sequences to behold on screen when/if Marvel decides to make it happen. The internal struggle between Banner and the Hulk, which should be familiar to comic fans, has merely been hinted toward so far in his two Avengers appearances, but there has been enough to suggest that there's at least a little more than meets the eye going on behind-the-scenes when the two concious entities become the Hulk.

As for Ruffalo's MCU future, it sounds like he's in for the long run as he basically confirms that he'll keep coming back as long as the fans want him to: "I don’t want to overstay my welcome and I hope I never do," he said. "If I do, I’ll be the first one to bow out."

What do you guys think? Puny Banner vs. the Incredible Hulk? Sound off with your thoughts below!

Mark Ruffalo Says THOR: RAGNAROK Is A "Buddy Pic" And Hints At Another Superhero Battle


Hit the jump and check out the latest from Mark Ruffalo as he talks more about reprising his Avengers: Age of Ultron role as Bruce Banner/Incredible Hulk in Thor: Ragnarok, and he also answers whether or not we'll see the two superheroes face-off once again.





When Mark Ruffalo spoke with the Daily News to promote his new movie Spotlight, the actor made an effort to talk a bit more about returning as Bruce Banner/ the Hulk in Thor: Ragnarok. We all expected the Marvel threequel would see the God of Thunder team up with the Jade Giant when it was initially reported, but Ruffalo confirmed so and also implied we'll see the two face off again.

"I didn't really know that much about it, but I think it's going to be a buddy picture with Thor and Bruce Banner," he said of Thor: Ragnarok. "I think they'll probably fight. "There's no doubt, everyone wants us to fight at one point." When pressed for more details, Ruffalo stated the obvious: "I know that it's about (the Norse legends of) 'Ragnarok,' or the end times in the Marvel universe as it pertains to Thor -- which seems to be quite the theme these days in movies"

Starring Chris Hemsworth, Tom Hiddleston, Jaimie Alexander, Ray Stevenson, Anthony Hopkins, and Mark Ruffalo, Thor: Ragnarok is currently being scripted by Christopher Yost and Craig Kyle with Taika Waititi set to direct, and the movie scheduled to release in theaters on November 3, 2017.

Ray Stevenson & Zachary Levi Still Waiting On Marvel's Call For THOR: RAGNAROK


Even though it's been confirmed that Thor Odinson (Chris Hemsworth) will be teaming up with a jade giant from Earth (Mark Ruffalo), it seems a couple of his fellow Asgardians, Volstagg (Ray Stevenson) and Fandral (Zachary levi), are still waiting to find out if they will return.





It is highly unlikely that Chris Hemsworth’s God of Thunder will take on the Norse apocalypse in Thor: Ragnarok without his Asgardian comrades by his side. However, despite Mark Ruffalo’s Hulk being confirmed to join the series’ third installment, actors Ray Stevenson and Zachary Levi, who play Volstagg the Voluminous and Fandral the Dashing, respectively, haven't received Marvel’s call.

“I’ve heard that it’s on the cards,” Stevenson told IGN about Thor: Ragnarok. “As far as Volstagg is concerned, should he be called with his other Warriors Three to protect young Thor again, within a heart’s beat he will be there. So, I am waiting to hear.” Despite not hearing from Marvel, Ray Stevenson says, “I’m very excited about the whole thing actually.” When asked about the Marvel threequel’s subtitle which suggests some dark things on the horizon for all of the Nine Realms, Stevenson had joked that “We just got rid of some big and dark things,” referring to the 2013 events of Thor: The Dark World. “It’s like ‘Are there really more big and dark things?’ Come on, bigger and darker, bring it to us! But it’s great, it’s like Vikings in space; it’s fantastic and I love it!”

“No, not at all,” says Zackary Levi when Comic Book Resources asked if Marvel has asked him to return as Fandral in Thor: Ragnarok. “As far as I know, they are still writing the script. Once that’s all buttoned down, I’m sure they will be making the phone call to whatever actors are involved. I hope I’m involved. I’d love to reprise Fandral. That was a fun experience, getting to be blonde, Asgardian and sounding British.” Regardless, Levi is excited about the recently-announced filming location. “I think shooting in Australia would be a hoot. The weather is certainly more conducive to happiness than when we were shooting in London, which is a great city, but pretty dreary.”

Like all stars of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, both Ray Stevenson and Zachary Levi obviously have multi-picture deals for their Asgardian roles, so don’t be surprised when it's announced that they will return forThor: Ragnarok. Anyhow, pre-production is scheduled to start in Queensland, Australia, in January 2016 with principal photography set to commence in June. What do you think?

RUMOR: "Major" Marvel Villainess To Be Introduced In THOR: RAGNAROK


If the Incredible Hulk's inclusion wasn't an indication, this new info certainly proves that Marvel Studios has some big plans for Chris Hemsworth's fifth time wielding mjolnir in Thor: Ragnarok. Hit the jump check out which new character might appear in the movie!





Apart from giving focus to Chris Hesmworth’s third standalone outing as the God of Thunder, Thor: Ragnarok is expected to flesh out Mark Ruffalo’s Incredible Hulk, Tom Hiddleston’s God of Mischief Loki, and Jaimie Alexander’s Lady Sif, among other Asgardians. And while it’s been said that the superheroine known as Valkyrie (and/or her Valkyrior team) will be introduced, now comes word that the 2017 threequel will also establish a "major" female supervillain from the Marvel Comics.

If Valkyrie is really coming to the big screen, that will make two high-profile female roles being cast in Ragnarok, because I have heard that Marvel is also planning on bringing their first major female villain into their cinematic universe,” reports Lainey Gossip, whose scoops have been low-key in sync with Birth.Movies.Death’s. Unfortunately, the source is not sure which Marvel Comics villainess is being cast, but it's likely either Hela, Queen of the Dead, or Amora the Enchantress.

As Birth.Movies.Death recently reported that Marvel Studios “thinks they’re going to cast some great women” in Thor: Ragnarok, Lainey Gossip adds that a big-name actress is certainly being considered for this mystery Marvel villain, and even name-drops Cate Blanchett. However, it’s unclear in the article if the source was either suggesting that the two-time Academy Award-winning actress is on the studio’s radar, or if just someone of her caliber is being pursued. Nonetheless, which villain do you think will appear (if not both) and which actress would you like to fill the role?



Starring Chris Hemsworth, Tom Hiddleston, Jaimie Alexander, Ray Stevenson, Anthony Hopkins, and Mark Ruffalo, Thor: Ragnarok is currently being scripted by Christopher Yost and Craig Kyle with Taika Waititi set to direct, and the movie scheduled to release in theaters on November 3, 2017.

Chris Hemsworth On THOR Vs HULK In RAGNAROK And Contract Re-Up After INFINITY WAR

Before revealing whether or not he'd renegotiate his Marvel contract after Avengers: Infinity War, Chris Hemsworth talks here for the first time about returning as the God of Thunder alongside Mark Ruffalo's Hulk in Thor: Ragnarok, and who'll win in the inevitable battle.





With Mark Ruffalo set to reprise his Avengers: Age of Ultron role as Bruce Banner aka Incredible Hulk in Chris Hemsworth's third solo outing as the God of Thunder, Thor: Ragnarok, we're bound to see the two superheroes bump heads once again. And while the Jade Giant has got the best of the Asgardian in their past scuffles, Hemsworth thinks the tables will turn in his 2017 Marvel threequel.

"I'd like to think I let him win last time, but because this movie is called Thor, I have to win this time," Chris Hemsworth told the New York Daily News while promoting In the Heart of the Sea. The Aussie actor failed to give any details on how Bruce Banner's angry alter-ego will come into the picture, but he does look forward to acting opposite Mark Ruffalo once again. "I hope it's a Butch Cassidy (and the Sundance Kid") sort of story," he said, referring to a 1969 buddy western. "That would be fun. I love Mark. I think those two characters haven't spent a whole lot of time talking to each other on screen (so far in the Marvel movies) , so it's something new, I think it would bring something different out of the characters. It's hard to have a conversation with the Hulk."

Finally, Hemsworth was asked about potentially renewing his contract with Marvel Studios given his original multi-picture deal will be fulfilled after the massive two-part Avengers: Infinity War event. "Contractually that will finish me up, I have to see how I feel at the end of them, it's still a while away," he said before joking that he'd like to see a fourth Thor movie explore the Odinson letting himself go physically. "Ask me in three films time," Hemsworth added. What do you think?

Marvel Hires Stephany Folsom To Work On THOR: RAGNAROK Script

It seems Marvel has added another female writer to its team, as reports are coming in that Stephany Folsom (The Princess of North Sudan) has been brought in to take her pen to Christopher Yost and Craig Kyle's script for Thor: Ragnarok. More past the jump...




Marvel's Thor: Ragnarok will get a fresh pair of eyes on it, as THR reports that Stephany Folsom (1969: A Space Odyssey or How Kubrick Learned to Stop Worrying and Land on the Moon, The Princess of North Sudan) has been tasked with working on the current script from Christopher Yost and Craig Kyle.

The studio seems to be putting something of a stable of female writers together, as we also have Nicole Perlman (Guardians of the Galaxy) and Meg LeFauve (Inside Out) penning the Captain Marvel screenplay.

It was recently announced that What We Do In The Shadows director Taika Waititi would take the helm on Thor: Ragnarok, which will see Chris Hemsworth's God of Thunder teaming with The Hulk (Mark Ruffalo) to take on some as yet unannounced bad guys. Aside from that plot details are being kept under wraps, but you'd have to expect an appearance from Tom Hiddleston's Loki at some point.

Cate Blanchett In Talks for ‘Thor: Ragnarok’









Academy Award-winner Cate Blanchett is in talks to be the new female lead in Marvel Studios’ third Thor film Thor: Ragnarok. Learn more about the possible Cate Blanchett Thor casting after the jump.

The report comes from industry newspaper Variety, who was unable to get a confirmation from Marvel which probably means the deal has yet to be officially signed. What role she would play in this third installment of the Thor franchise is unknown, but one would assume she will be a powerful female character.
Rumor had it that Charlize Theron, Emily Blunt and Jessica Chastain were up for the role of a female villain, which could possibly be the same part Blanchett is in talks for. Possible options for the character include Amora the Enchantress, Hela Goddess of Death, Karnila and the Warrior Queen Knorda with Amora being the obvious choise due to her history with Thor.
Ragnarok has appeared many times in the comic books with the backstory seeing “Thor inheriting the Odinpower after Odin basically dies during a battle with the fire demon Surtur. Puffed up with this power, Thor goes a little bit crazy, extending the rule of Asgard to rule of Earth, and spends a couple hundred years as an all-powerful and not-at-all cool deity. Eventually he basically said “oops!” and traveled back in time to wipe out that whole storyline.”
So, as Thor gets back to Asgard, a variation on the quest from Lord of the Rings is playing out. The mold that created Mjolnir still exists, and could potentially be used to make other serious weapons. The dwarves who originally forged Mjolnir are carrying the mold around, seeking to throw it into the void between worlds. They nearly succeed, but Loki intercepts the mold. Loki has new weapons made, and with a force of powerful allies he attacks Thor and friends. In the first attack Mjolnir is broken, and the subsequent war basically destroys Asgard.
What We Do in the Shadows/Eagle vs Shark helmer Taika Waiti is slated it direct the film, which will see Chris Hemsworth returning to play the title character. The film will also feature Mark Ruffalo as the Hulk and Tom Hiddleston reprising his role as Loki.
Stephany Folsom recently polished the script, which also has been worked on by Craig Kyle and Christopher Yost. Thor: Ragnarok is set to hit theaters on November 3rd, 2017.

Thor 3 May Make This Major Change To The Hulk







In the majority of the stories he’s appeared in over the last five decades, The Hulk has been a creature driven primarily by rage, and that’s been the case in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Granted, following The Incredible Hulk, Bruce Banner’s been able to get better control over his monstrous side (minus a few mind control incidents), but the Green Goliath has been more animalistic than civil. However, when Hulk returns in Thor: Ragnarok, fans might see a more intelligent version of him while out in space.

Noting how Bruce Banner has secluded himself from the rest of humanity again following Avengers: Age of Ultron, Mark Ruffalo revealed to Ain’t It Cool News that we may see the Banner and Hulk personalities start to merge. Ruffalo elaborated:
It's very subtle, but the Banner/Hulk consciousness is beginning to meld a little bit. Who decided to leave? Was it Banner or Hulk? It's not really in the (cinematic) mythology of Hulk up until that moment to be that conscious and pro-active. It's interesting, right?
The relationship between Bruce Banner and The Hulk is a modern day Jekyll and Hyde story, but by having the two personalities come together, that gives the audience a whole new dynamic to chew on. There have been intelligent versions of the Hulk seen in the comics, ranging from his post-apocalyptic future counterpart, The Maestro, to his alternate personality Doc Green. Aside from being able to distinguish between the good and bad guys, Hulk is ruled by instinct, so if some of Banner’s composure can seep into Hulk’s mind, he’ll finally be capable of reasoning. That’s not to say that Hulk will necessarily be the genius Banner is in the MCU, but it does mean he’ll have more control over his actions. Just picture him consciously applying his massive power against foes and working out problems in front of him as opposed to what he usually does: destroy everything in his path.

During the final battle against Ultron and his army in Avengers: Age of Ultron, Hulk jumped aboard an aircraft to toss out the robot antagonist. Rather than return to his teammates, he opted to stay on the so he wouldn’t endanger Black Widow or anyone else around him. While not clearly stated, it did look like Hulk was acting different than he usually does, evidenced by how calm he was staring at the sky. Nick Fury later told Black Widow that the Quinjet crashed near Fiji, leaving Banner’s current whereabouts unknown. It’s still unclear how he’ll get involved in Thor: Ragnarok, but that added intelligence will certainly come in handy when he fights whoever the movie’s main antagonist is alongside the God of Thunder.

Kevin Feige then touched on Thor: Ragnarok and implied that, despite its subtitle, fans shouldn’t just assume the threequel will be about the Norse apocalyptic end of the world. “I don't think people will read into that title alone [regarding] what the movie's going to be,” he said. “It's going to be, perhaps, as totally different from the two prior Thor movies as Winter Soldier was from the first Captain America. We want to take it to new places, we've got new characters that will show how big we're swinging on this. And we have a Hulk.” Speaking of new places, the Marvel Studios head honcho then confirmed something that Thor fans have long desired: “The film takes place within the cosmos primarily which is to say, frankly, very little Earth.” What do you think?

Sounds Like Cate Blanchett Is Definitely Up For A Villain Role In THOR: RAGNAROK

Cate Blanchett still hasn't been officially confirmed for the Thor threequel, but that hasn't stopped fans speculating about which character she might be lined up for. Now, one of her potential co-stars in the film may have dropped a pretty major clue. More past the jump...




Mark Ruffalo might have given us a big hint as to the role Cate Blanchett is said to be circling in Marvel's Thor: Ragnarok. Back when we first heard the award winning Aussie actress was in early talks to appear in the movie, all we were told was that the character was a "bad ass", but after quizzing Ruffalo at the BAFTA Awards Season Tea Party on Saturday about possibly acting alongside Blanchett in the Marvel flick, ET seems to have given us a lot more to go on.

"I'm so thrilled," the Bruce Banner/Hulk actor responded. "I saw her at the Governors’ banquet here and heard that maybe she was circling, they were talking to her about the part, so I ran up to her and I was like, ‘Please, please, please make this work! She’s just one of the best, and to have her play a baddie is going to be really exciting." Of course it's always possible Ruffalo is mistaken, but it's just as likley he thinks there's slightly more information about her role out there and had no idea he was revealing anything new.

SPOILERS: Here's 'Odin''s Hilariously Bizarre Sounding Role In THOR: RAGNAROK


When we last saw Odin, he was revealed to actually be Loki in disguise, and his fate has remained a mystery since Thor: The Dark World as a result. Well, according to this new report, Anthony Hopkins will be back, but not in the way you might expect. Read on for details...



While a popular theory since the release of Thor: The Dark World has been that Loki killed Odin, most comic book fans know that taking down the King of Asgard isn't actually that easy. Seeing as Loki is currently disguised as his adopted father, chances are that Anthony Hopkins would always reprise the role in Thor: Ragnarok, but Geek.com claims to have learned how he'll factor into the movie. Take this with a pinch of salt, but the site reports that, "Odin has fled Asgard for Midgard, where he wanders the Earth as one of those crazy-looking "the end is nigh" street-corner hobos, warning of the impending apocalypse." That sounds pretty hilarious, and they add that Thor is going to end up encountering his father on Earth at some point (presumably before he and The Hulk embark on that cosmic road trip of theirs). Marvel are obviously still working on Thor: Ragnarok, so this should obviously be taken with a pinch of salt for the time being. It definitely sounds like a fun way to incorporate Odin into the movie anyway! What do you guys think of this?

Mark Ruffalo Describes Thor: Ragnarok As A Universal Road Movie


(Photo: Marvel Entertainment) The plot for Thor: Ragnarok is beginning to take shape. The God of Thunder will be joined by fellow Avenger Bruce Banner, a.k.a. the Hulk, for what actor Mark Ruffalo describes as a cosmic road trip across the Nine Realms.
“There’s a little bit of Midnight Run, with [Charles] Grodin and [Robert] De Niro,” Ruffalo told Empire. "I feel like that’s kind of where we’re heading with this relationship between Thor and Banner. It is a universal road movie – that’s where we’re heading. It’s not where you'd think it will be, so it’s not your classic road movie but it has that structure, I think."
Ruffalo, who is currently promoting the Oscar-nominated film Spotlight, also talked a bit about his chemistry with star Chris Hemsworth.
"I love Chris [Hemsworth], and it’s not an accident that we’ve been put together because we have a good time together and we goof off. The fact that we’re moving towards the smart-comedic bent plays into our relationship.”

Possible SPOILERS: The Villains Of THOR: RAGNAROK Revealed?

Possible details on the baddies that'll populate another upcoming Marvel sequel here, and how they'll go about causing problems for Chris Hemsworth's God of Thunder and friends. From the sounds of things, Thor might be going on his next adventure without the use of a VERY important item...




After revealing the identity of one of the villains in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, Geek.com now reckon they have details on the wrong 'uns that will show up in Thor: Ragnarok. According to them, the new baddie on the block is indeed going to be the ruler of the Underworld, Hela - something most of us figured anyway. They don't know for sure if that's who Cate Blanchett is lined up to play, but it seems like a safe bet.

The report claims that Hela will team up with the other antagonist of the film, Loki (no surprises there), to scheme up a plan that banishes Thor from Asgard for good.
"In Thor: Ragnarok, Hela and Loki will have set their plan well in motion by the time Thor gets wise to what’s going on. Hela ends up creating the incident to Thor’s journey in the film. According to our sources, when Thor confronts Hela, things do not go well. Not only does she banish Thor from Asgard, but she destroys Mjolnir!"
That's right - there's a chance the God of Thunder will have to navigate the Nine Realms without his most relied-upon tool in the fight against evil. Again, we'll have to consider this a rumor for now, but let us know what you think in the usual place.

Mark Ruffalo Compares ‘Thor: Ragnarok’ to ‘Midnight Run,’ Which Is Really All You Need to Hear




The first two Thor movies have their moments, but they’re among the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s more forgettable chapters. They never reach the heights of The Avengers or Captain America: The Winter Soldier, but they never tumble to the dismal lows of Iron Man 2. They’re just kind of there, a great showcase for a handful of weird ideas and Chris Hemsworth‘s always entertaining lead, but not too much more.
Everything we’ve heard about Thor: Ragnarok suggests that Marvel Studios is trying to make the third solo adventure of the Odinson something special. First and foremost, it’s no longer a solo movie but a team-up adventure with Bruce Banner, a.k.a. the Hulk. And puny Banner himself, Mark Ruffalo, says the sequel a road movie in the vein of Midnight Run.

Ruffalo, fresh off an Oscar nomination for his work in Spotlight, spoke with Empire and mentioned one of the great road trip movies of all time while chatting about Thor: Ragnarok:
There’s a little bit of Midnight Run, with [Charles] Grodin and [Robert] De Niro… I feel like that’s kind of where we’re heading with this relationship between Thor and Banner… It is a universal road movie – that’s where we’re heading… It’s not where you’d think it will be, so it’s not your classic road movie but it has that structure, I think.
Midnight Run is, of course, Martin Brest’s 1988 crime comedy about a bounty hunter (Robert De Niro, back when him starring in a comedy wasn’t instant bad news) transporting a Mafia accountant across the country, with mayhem all of kinds ensuing around them. If Thor: Ragnarok follows a similar template, with Thor and the Hulk traveling across the nine realms and getting into all kinds of mischief, we may be in for a big treat.
Plus, these two already have a pretty contentious relationship, so watching them work out their issues on a “universal” road trip should be a ton of fun. The last time we saw these two in Avengers: Age of Ultron, the Hulk was heartbroken and sending himself into exile while Thor was leaving Earth to deal with an apocalyptic crisis in Asgard. These two really could use a boost right now. Ruffalo is very well aware of this duo’s dynamic, telling Empire:
I love Chris [Hemsworth], and it’s not an accident that we’ve been put together because we have a good time together and we goof off. The fact that we’re moving towards the smart-comedic bent plays into our relationship.
This sounds like everything the Soul Forge operator ordered. Hemsworth has talked about wanting more humor in the next Thor movie and the hiring of director Taiki Waititi, director of the incredible and incredibly hilarious What We Do in the Shadows, suggests that Marvel wants the exact same thing. At this point, the impeccable Cate Blanchett joining the cast feels like a nice bonus attached to an already strong package instead of “Oh My Odin Carol Is Going To Be In A Marvel Movie!”

Thor: Ragnarok Director Taika Waititi on How He’s Changing Things Up

Thor: Ragnarok director Taika Waititi on how he’s changing things up

For many years, filmmaker Taika Waititi established a name for himself with the smaller movies he made in his home country of New Zealand–movies like Eagle vs. Shark and What We Do in the Shadows, both with Jemaine Clement–so it was pretty surprising and exciting to see his name recently attached to the upcoming Marvel Studios threequel Thor: Ragnarok.
This weekend, Waititi brought his latest New Zealand-based film, The Hunt for the Wilderpeople, to the Sundance Film Festival. It’s a coming-of-age film that shows a lot more of his ability to do action with impressive car chases and stunts, as well as nods to The Terminator and the “Rambo” movies.
SuperHeroHype had a chance to speak to Waititi about his interest and plans for entering the Marvel Universe and maybe changing things up a little.
“I feel like for me to keep this filmmaking job interesting, I gotta change it all the time,” he said about his decision to tackle a much bigger movie like Thor: Ragnarok. “This is an opportunity for me to make something that’s so out of my usual go-to topics and style of filmmaking and make something that’s big and exciting and to test myself. This is the thing. I’m so relaxed in my life right now that it doesn’t matter what happens. I just feel like this is just a great opportunity to learn something. You gotta do that, you just gotta keep learning and that’s what this is for me.”


“Plus also I collected comics as a kid and what filmmaker doesn’t have somewhere in their head that question, ‘Can I do a blockbuster?'” He also suggests that directing Thor: Ragnarok might make it easier for him to make start conversations about some of the bigger sci-fi movie ideas he’s had in mind to make.


So far, Waititi is pretty well known for his comedies and unique sense of humor, having directed a few episodes of HBO’s “Flight of the Conchords” as well. The previous Thor movies have had some humor in them, but we wondered how that might translate into a movie that’s about “Ragnarok.”
“Nobody knows what Ragnarok is,” he laughed. “I started reading about the actual Norse Ragnarok and that’s even more insane than the comics. Crazy!”
“But that’s what I’m going to really concentrate on, really make an effort to change the entire thing,” he continued. “For me, I want to treat this as if it was the first Thor film, so we’re going to redo it. You just have to flip it and freshen it up, like anything. It’s also part of a very well-established universe right now, but that’s why they got me.”


He told us he’s not worrying too much about what comes before or after his movie either.


“This is the cool thing is that anything goes in these early stages, ideas-wise. We really are in the early stages,” as they’re still very much in prep with plans to start filming in July.
