Asgard! For Reals!
That's right folks, director Taika Waititi is having one helluva set built for the upcoming Marvel Studios sequel Thor: Ragnarok, the third film in the Thor franchise. As you can see below, from the designs and the actual set photos the God of Thunder's home Asgard is being assembled right now on Australia's Gold Coast. Pretty cool right?
While most story details that have leaked out about the film pointing more towards a "buddy space adventure with Thor and The Hulk, it seems kind of strange that Marvel Studios would invest so much time and effort into Asgard. Maybe this set will also be used in other Marvel films as time goes on? Who knows?
What we do know is that director Taika Waititi is probably gonna make one hell of a badass Thor film and that its gonna be unlike anything we have seen in the MCU before. Also not to be forgotten Jeff Goldblum is going to be a major player in this film......Jeff Goldblum! It doesn't get much cooler than that my friends. Anyways check out the awesome images below and then sound off in the comments section with your thoughts on the upcoming film.
The is also set to star Mark Ruffalo, Tom Hiddleston, Anthony Hopkins, Idris Elba, Cate Blanchett, Tessa Thompson, and Karl Urban.
Thor: Ragnarok is set to hit theaters on November 3rd, 2017.
