If you read my anticipated films of 2017 list, then you know I’m excited for the new entry in the Thor series, coming out later this year. The number 1 reason I’m so greatly anticipating Thor: Ragnarok, is the inclusion of the big green guy himself, Hulk. Well, Marvel recently revealed the official plot synopsis for Thor: Ragnarok and it seems as though Hulk and Thor are going to be going at it, in a very Planet Hulk like scenario!
The synopsis reads,
“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 gladiatorial contest that pits him against his former ally and fellow Avenger — the Incredible Hulk!”
If I’m remembering correctly, Thor: Ragnarok was once pitched as a road trip film, with are two heroes Thor and Hulk and although that probably is still true, first the two giant are going into battle against each other!
This now offers up a lot of questions like, “Why is Thor without his hammer?”, “How and why is Thor imprisoned?” and most importantly “How did Hulk get on another planet!?”. I can’t wait to have these questions answered and this only elevates my excitement for Thor 3, which from now on I will only refer to as ‘TvH’, #TvH.
What do you think about this synopsis and are you excited to see Thor vs Hulk?
