THOR: RAGNAROK (2017): Film To Adapt Planet Hulk Storyline

Thor Comics

Major details revealed about plot of Thor: Ragnarok. New information about the Marvel superhero film confirms that it will partially serve as a big-screen adaptation of the comics’ Planet Hulk story arc.

The news should be particularly exciting for Hulk fans as it will be the first time the gamma-irradiated brute has appeared in a major Marvel Cinematic Universe role outside of an Avengers film since 2008’s The Incredible Hulk. Apparently, the film will combine elements of both Planet Hulk as well as the Thor comics’ Ragnarok storyline and see the two heroes travel across the universe together to keep what is only referred to as “the ultimate weapon” from falling into the wrong hands:

It’s during this part of the film that The Hulk will don the classic Planet Hulk armour from the comic books, something which promises to be an absolute delight to see on the big screen. It’s Thor’s new look which is most shocking though as Chris Hemsworth will apparently be rocking a shaved head for some of the movie, an appearance it’s fair to say will be vastly different for him. Tessa Thompson’s Valkyrie meanwhile will, “be wearing war paint on her face, much like a Native American warrior.”

The site also mentions that The Night Manager’s Elizabeth Debicki is playing Ayesha/Her/Kismet/Paragon in James Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 2 (something CBM revealed earlier this year), and confirm that the team will appear in Avengers: Infinity War.

When I'm not working towards my certificate in Radio and Television/Video Production at Fullerton College, I enjoy reading (horror, science fiction, and historical/political nonfiction are particular favorites), participating in my school's TV and theatre clubs, attending movie screenings, plays, concerts, and other events, and trying to come up with pithy things to say on social media. Believe it or not, there are occasions where I find time to write for my own leisure.
