A few years ago, there was a rumor going around that the end of Avengers: Age of Ultron would see Hulk blasted into space after posing too much of a threat to humanity. This would have led into a solo Hulk movie based on the popular Planet Hulk storyline. We don’t seem to be any closer to a Hulk standalone movie but the third Thor movie Thor: Ragnarok incorporates Mark Ruffalo‘s character in which how been called an intergalactic buddy movie as well as q stand-in for a Planet Hulk movie.
Back in May it was rumored that the film’s story would involve Thor, in search for some kind of weapon that will prevent Ragnarok from destroying Asgard, discovering the Hulk on another planet taking part of some gladiatorial games. Those games are being overseen by The Grandmaster, the character recently announced to be played by Jeff Goldblum. What you’re seeing above looks like a very faithful adaptation of the shoulder armor seen in the Planet Hulk comic book storyline. I’m sure we’ll learn much more at the Marvel presentation later today.
Thor Ragnarok brings back Chris Hemsworth as Thor, alongside Jaimie Alexander as Lady Sif. Newcomers to the cast include Tessa Thompson as Valkyrie, Karl Urban as Skurge and Cate Blanchett as Hela. What We Do in the Shadows and Hunt for the Wilderpeople director Taika Waititi will be at the helm of Thor: Ragnarok, which will arrive on July 28, 2017.Cool Posts From Around the Web:
