It appears as though its going to be a huge week here at EastCoastMovieGuys for Marvel news! Following last night's big Spider-Man: Homecoming scoop from our good friends the SchmoesKnow, which you can check out Right Here! Earlier this morning we announced Marvel's Iron Fist premiere date and now we have some badass new details on the highly anticipated new Thor: Ragnarok film!
According to the Schmoes, Thor: Ragnarok is not going to have the story-line we all had been speculating it would. Apparently the Ragnarok subtitle doesn't refer to the classic comic story-line, but actually a planet named Ragnarok. This planet is where most of the film will take place and where Chris Hemsworth's Thor & Mark Ruffalo's Hulk will be imprisoned and forced to fight in arena style battles. Probably a mixture of Mad Max: Fury Road meets Gladiator with director Taiki Waititi's incredibly awesome comedy stylings all mixed together!
Eventually Thor and Hulk must team-up to escape the endless arenas, which are controlled by the Grandmaster, who is played by none other than the legendary Jeff Goldblum. The Grandmaster is aided by his right hand man, his enforcer named Skurge: The Destroyer played by Karl Urban (Dredd). At some point during all this Thor will meet a beautiful warrior named Valkyrie, who is played by Creed's Tessa Thompson.
The Schmoes even point to a cool plot point that sees Karl Urban's Skurge change sides at one point and aid The two Avengers in escaping the planet of Ragnarok. Still no word yet on how Cate Blanchett's Hela fits into the film. I imagine she will probably be the ruler of this planet, above Jeff Goldblum's Grandmaster.
So what do you guys and gals think? Pretty kickass right? I know I'm freaking stoked! Lets discuss all this cool stuff down in the comments section. Jump down there and let us know some of your awesome theories. As always thanks for choosing EastCoastMovieGuys as your place for movie news!
