Marvel Studios has released an awesome new image from the set of Thor: Ragnarok. The third film in the Thor franchise will land this year and now we have a new look at the character’s updated costume. The image shows Thor himself Chris Hemsworth and director Taika Waititi on set discussing the upcoming movie.
Alongside the new image, Disney and Marvel have revealed the first official synopsis for Thor: Ragnarok, which reveals certain aspects of the film, including the amazing role Hulk will play in the film and exactly what Thor has been up to since Avengers: Age of Ultron.
“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!
“Thor: Ragnarok is directed by Taika Waititi and returns Chris Hemsworth starring as Thor and Tom Hiddleston reprising his role as Loki. They are joined by Cate Blanchett, Idris Elba, Jeff Goldblum, Tessa Thompson and Karl Urban, with Mark Ruffalo and Anthony Hopkins.”
It’s exciting to think that we will see Thor and the Hulk battle for survival in Ragnarok. We’ve seen the characters butt heads in the past but never in an arena on a planet of death. The synopsis also revealed exciting details on Cate Blanchett’s villainous role, and the apocalyptic ramifications of this film.
