“The continuation of the epic Thor franchise will be powerful and unique and with the additions of Cate, Jeff, Tessa, Karl, and Mark to the cast we have the makings of his most dangerous and heroic adventure yet. The sheer, raw talent each of these actors brings to the screen can’t be quantified. Having any one of them join the Marvel Cinematic Universe would be an honor, and having all of them is incredible,” said Producer Kevin Feige.

‘Thor: Ragnarok’ stars Chris Hemsworth, Tom Hiddleston, Idris Elba, and Sir Anthony Hopkins. Taika Waititi directs with Kevin Feige producing the film.

‘Thor: Ragnarok’ will destroy the universe on November 3, 2017.
