Taika Waititi, director of the upcoming Thor Ragnarok movie, recently said that he was doing the motion capture acting for Korg, one of the characters from the Planet Hulk storyline and a friend of the Hulk. Thor met (and broke apart) another member of Korg’s race in the beginning of the last Thor movie.
Okay, given that they were incorporating the Planet Hulk storyline into the Thor movie, I was obviously looking forward to it. But I have to say that after seeing this trailer, this is now my number 1 movie for the year to see. It now tops Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 2. This is going to be an awesome, incredible movie. And the Led Zeppelin song in the background is just perfect.
It seems that the first official trailer for Thor Ragnarok is the best Marvel trailer to date, at least according to James Gunn, the director of the Guardians of the Galaxy movies. Maybe it will be coming soon! Until that happens, Marvel has released a new promo image for the movie, featuring Thor and Hulk in his Planet Hulk armor. Again, this is going to be an awesome movie!
If you would have asked me a few years ago if I ever thought I would see an official actual Planet Hulk Lego figure from Lego, I would have said no way. Well with the forthcoming Thor Ragnarok movie it looks like we will get at least one Planet Hulk figure. There is an auction up on eBay for just the Planet Hulk figure from one of the movie Lego sets. Seller is asking a LOT of money for it, I can wait. Sounds like there will be two sets, needless to say, I will be getting both.
-Gladiator Hulk, Thor (with helmet mold), Loki, Grandmaster, and a guard
-Bruce Banner (about to change to Hulk), Thor (with helmet mold), Valkyrie, Hela, and two henchmen
Mark Ruffalo was interviewed by Entertainment Weekly and said that in Ragnarok Hulk is “more of a character than the green rage machine you’ve seen in the Avengers movies.” This time around, Hulk’s “got a swagger. He’s like a god.”
There will be a Thor: Ragnarok Prelude comic book released in October and apparently it will touch on the Hulk’s origin in the Marvel movie universe. Listed below is the description of the comic:

Entertainment Weekly has released some pictures from the upcoming Thor Ragnarok movie, unfortunately there is nothing Planet Hulk related. There is a picture of Thor in his gladiator uniform so that’s cool but let’s see the Planet Hulk images!!!!
Thanks to Jeff K., here are some t-shirts for the upcoming Thor Ragnaork movie with the Hulk. Based on the photos, they have done a perfect job capturing the look of Planet Hulk. Can not wait to see what Hulk related action figures and toys come out with this movie. Better make more room on the shelves.
Marvel Studios has released some new concept art from the upcoming Thor: Ragnarok movie featuring more looks at what the Hulk will look like in his Planet Hulk look. I will say this again, I can not wait for this movie!!
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.
