More is being revealed at this year’s San Diego Comic Con. Yesterday was filled with awesome and exciting news, like the fact that Ghost Rider is going to be on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. in its fourth season.
Well it’s Saturday and there is plenty to be revealed down at the convention floor, especially from the Marvel booth. Fans have been wanting to see an adaptation of Planet Hulk in the Marvel Cinematic Universe for some time now, and for a while, it looked like it wasn’t going to happen. Then, we learned that not only will Hulk have a large role in Thor: Ragnarok, but the film will also have a take on the Planet Hulk story.
In that story, Bruce Banner/Hulk is sent into outer space by the Illuminati, and ends up crash landing on an alien world, which leads to his eventual conquest of the planet. Things will obviously be changed in Thor: Ragnarok, but Hulk will get to be a gladiator in the film, and today we’ve just been given a look at some of his armor and artillery.
Two-time Oscar®-winner Cate Blanchett (“Blue Jasmine,” “Carol, “Cinderella”) joins Marvel Studios’ “Thor: Ragnarok” as the mysterious and powerful new villain Hela, along with Jeff Goldblum (the upcoming “Independence Day: Resurgence,” “The Grand Budapest Hotel,” “Jurassic Park”) who joins the cast as the eccentric Grandmaster, Tessa Thompson (“Creed,” “Selma”) who will bring the classic hero Valkyrie to life on the big screen, and Karl Urban (“Star Trek” trilogy, “The Lord of the Rings: Return of the King”) who will add his might to the fray as Skurge.
Rounding out the cast for the film is three-time Oscar®-nominee Mark Ruffalo (“Spotlight,” “The Kids Are All Right,” “Foxcatcher”), reprising his role of Bruce Banner/the Hulk from “Marvel’s The Avengers” and Marvel’s “Avengers: Age of Ultron.”
“Thor: Ragnarok,” the third installment of Marvel’s popular Norse Super Hero, is directed by Oscar®-nominated filmmaker Taika Waititi (“Two Cars, One Night,” “What We Do in the Shadows,” “Hunt for the Wilderpeople”).
