Marvel has released the official plot of the upcoming Thor: Ragnarok movie:
“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 Hela. But first he must survive a deadly gladatorial contest that pits him against his former ally and fellow Avenger – the Incredible Hulk!”
I really can not wait for this movie, how cool is it going to be seeing the Hulk in the gladiator outfit on the big screen.
THor Ragnarok director Taika Waititi was talking the upcoming Thor Ragnarok movie with Total Film and had this to say:
“Sakaar was just an insane, far-off, futuristic place which was the biggest shift for the film and these characters. I was really excited when Kevin [Feige] and the rest of Marvel jumped on board with the idea to use [Jack] Kirby as a big influence in the design of the film. What’s really hard is staying authentic.”
Who knows how long they will be on the planet but I am definitely looking forward to seeing how they represent Sakaar on film.
The first promotional image from next year’s Thor: Ragnarok has been leaked online (maybe not leaked, who knows nowadays). The look of the Hulk is perfect from what he looked like in the Planet Hulk comic book storyline. Thor definitely looks different from the past movies, he has a gladiator look to him also. Can’t wait for this movie.
Comicbookresources did an article on the top 15 quotes from Marvel movies and along with the Hulk having 4 quotes about or by him in the article, the top quote is the Hulk’s as well. Here’s a link to the article along with the Hulk quotes listed below Article
15. “Me in a metal tube, deep underground with hundreds of people in the most aggressive city in the world?” Hulk (2008)
12. “Hulk SMASH!” The Incredible Hulk (2008)
7. “We have a Hulk.” The Avengers (2012)
1. “That’s my secret Captain, I’m always angry.” The Avengers (2012)
Marvel apparently has a new web-based series called TD;DR and the first episode is an animated recap of the Planet Hulk storyline. Even Marvel knows that the Planet Hulk storyline is awesome. Take a look and enjoy!
Thor Ragnaork (aka Planet Hulk) director Taiki Watiti filmed a video for the last day of filming in Australia and he mentions an actor playing a character called Miek from the Planet Hulk storyline. Can not wait for this movie. Here is the video, take a look: Thor Ragnaorok
So a trailer that was shown at a recent comicon was leaked for next year’s Thor: Ragnarok movie which is basically the Planet Hulk storyline. The video is pretty rough but you can see the Hulk quickly with some armor and a weapon. Can not wait for this movie.
Thor: Ranrarok director Taika Waititi used Instagram to post the image below hinting that Korg will be in the upcoming movie. We all know there was a member of Korg’s race at the beginning of the last Thor movie so his race is already out there in the galaxy. It would be great if they bring in other members of the Warbound also like Caiera or No-Name from the Brood (although Fox may own them since they are X-Men related).
Per an article on Comicbookresources:
““Captain America: Civil War” co-director Joe Russo says he and the other filmmakers considered using many other characters in the film, including the fan-favorite Marvel anti-hero Red Hulk.
Joe Russo told ComicBook.com, “We had so many characters in that movie as it was. We consider everything, obviously, but with so many characters in that movie as it was to try and entertain adding another character and to get to the Red Hulk, you have to add a back-story. You have to substantiate the narrative to get to that. [Thaddeus Ross], on our list of priorities, he was there sort of as the government’s agenda and not to add another complicated super powered character to the mix.”
Ross, played by William Hurt, appeared in the film as the figurehead for the U.S. Military who propositioned the Sokovia Accords — the mandate that said superheroes were to register with the government. In the comic, Ross — a long time foe for The Hulk — went on to become the Red Hulk after the Bruce Banner incarnation of the character went away after “World War Hulk.” Of course, Hurt’s Ross never makes that transformation in “Civil War.” ”
Now calling the Red Hulk a fan favorite might be a bit much. I for one am glad he was not in the movie.
On the last day of filming in Australia for next year’s Thor: Ragnarok movie, co-starring the Hulk of course, Mark Ruffalo celebrated by tweeting some pictures. The pictures include him with the director, along with Mark with Liam Hemsworth, and a very cool pic of Mark with a Hulk head. Not sure what the Hulk head was used for but it looks pretty cool!
