Chris Hemsworth will be returning to the MCU as Thor in Thor: Ragnarok. This is the third movie in the Thor series. Even though the name is Ragnarok it will be pulling material from several sources (Ragnarok, Planet Hulk, and Contest of Champions). Don’t go into the movie expecting to see the Ragnarok story-line.
The plot as we understand it pre-release is Thor is imprisoned on the gladiatorial planet of Sakaar without his trusty hammer, Mjolnir. He must defeat Hulk in battle so he can return to Asgard in time to save it from Hela and the impending Ragnarok. In Norse mythology, Ragnarök is a series of future events foretold to ultimately result in the death of a number of major figures (including the gods Odin, Thor, Týr, Freyr, Heimdallr, and Loki).
Thor: Ragnarok promises to be a very entertaining movie. With the introduction of elements from the Planet Hulk story-line we are hoping to see a new Hulk movie telling that story.
Ragnarok will be in theaters November 3, 2017. We will be doing a review of the movie opening week so keep an eye out for that video here on this YouTube channel.
