Not many heard about it thus far and now 2017 has dawned! The Marvel Studio mysteries beckon greater than ever. Taika Waititi directs Thor: Ragnarok that brings in the Hulk too. That should be sensational enough. Don’t forget that Waititi was the genius behind ‘Hunt for the Wilderpeople’ and ‘What We Do in the Shadows.’ Chris Hemsworth enacts the mighty Thor and Mark Ruffalo is the great Hulk. Yet the movie seems as far away as distant galaxies with lots happening before that. Marvel releases ‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2’ in May and ‘Spider-Man: Homecoming’ in July. The Marvel Thor ventures have not been doing too well and Ragnarok carries lots of hope.
The story is kind of weird
Marvel now released an image for Ragnarok and a story synopsis. Fans will start putting the pieces together.
Thor is in prison without that fabulous hammer. He races against time to return to Asgard and stop Ragnarok. At risk is the Asgardian civilization. The new danger is the cruel Hela. Yet there is something more. Thor has to take on a gladiatorial contest. Who will take him on? None other than the Incredible Hulk, once upon a time ally and similar Avenger.
All that sounds cool in addition to being creepy. The super Thor-Hulk brawls promise a lot of action and fantasy. Ragnarok may well turn out to be incredible stuff. Imagine all those action movies like Lethal Weapon and Gladiator rolled into one. It should be one great cinematic experience to chill the blood.
Getting to know the actors more, Cate Blanchett plays the evil Hela. Remember Tom Hiddleston in Thor: The Dark World? Tom resumes the part of Loki. Jeff Goldblum plays the mysterious Grandmaster, an Elder of the Universe and a cosmic being. Among the writers are Craig Kyle and Christopher Yost. Expect a lot from the movie!
