Back in October, it was announced that Marvel Studios brought Taika Waititi into direct Thor: Ragnarok because the script was so dark and they needed Waititi to lighten it up. Also, Cate Blanchett is heavily rumored to play Hela ‘Queen of the Dead.’
If Thor has a dark script, Ragnarok, and the ‘Queen of the Dead,’ someone is going to die! But who?
Latino-Review is reporting that plot for Thor: Ragnarok will go as followed.
Hela will take Asgard and, Thor attempts to stop her. Hela lays the smackdown on the God of Thunder, destroying his hammer and straight up murdering Thor’s friend Heimdall.
*** Insert road trip through Planet Hulk ***
Then the final showdown with Hela will feature an army of the dead commanded by the villainess doing battle with good Valkyries from Valhalla and the souls of the righteous fallen, including Heimdall.
With the death of a major character, the possibility of Planet Hulk, and Ragnarok; it looks like Kevin Feige is putting all his chips on the table for the third Thor film as there is a chance Chris Hemsworth doesn’t return to the franchise after Avengers: Infinity War.
Thor: Ragnarok is directed by Taika Waititi, Christopher Yost, and Craig Kyle are working on the script, and the film stars Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Tom Hiddleston, Jaimie Alexander, Ray Stevenson, and Anthony Hopkins.
Thor: Ragnarok will destroy the universe on November 3, 2017.
