Thor: Ragnarok

Recommended Posts

There's been some casting news, some confirming rumours.

 

Quote

 

Cate Blanchett is the movie's main villain Hela, the Asgardian goddess of death who has been the scourge of Thor in the pages of Marvel Comics dating back to 1964.

 

Tessa Thompson is Marvel's newest female superhero Valkyrie, a mighty warrior chosen by Thor's father Odin to bring lost souls to the promised land Valhalla.

 

Jeff Goldblum will be turning up as Marvel's Grandmaster, an immortal Elder of the universe who will always pursue amusement at any cost.

 

Karl Urban turns to the dark side and grabs hold of a mighty double-bladed axe to play the Asgardian executioner known throughout the galaxy as Skurge.

 

 

Mark Ruffalo is also back as Hulk, as well as Tom Hiddleston, Anthony Hopkins and Idris Elba. Natalie Portman will not feature as it's mainly off Earth.

 

[edit]

Trailer of awesome

I'm really interested to see what Taika Waititi is going to bring to the picture. His work has been on smaller movies, but he's a fantastic director. 

 

Solid cast too.

With Hela & Skurge cast there's no way they could avoid doing the Gjallerbru showdown. I really hope Skurge gets a lot of screen time in this before that (if it happens), Karl Urban is a fantastic choice for the role & he always puts his all into his characters. 

 

He he should bring some Lawgivers with him!

Ah right, well it's not going to matter if he doesn't want to do more cause I'm positive he has an Infinity gem in his armour. They can just kill him off.

 

I mean someone has to die, we're 11 films in now and only 3 good guys have died. Where is the peril?

Yeah, I figure that's where we're going to find ourselves by the end of Ragnarok. Which also suggests that The Vision could be in trouble going forward as well.

Yeah he surely has to die too for Thanos to have all the gems.

There's been 13 MCU movies so far. How many heroes kick the bucket across 13 average comic stories of an average comparable length to a movie story? Lets not even get into how they always seem to be alive again after a while in the comics.

I just feel like unless something happens to at least one of the main guys, where is the peril? If Thanos isn't able to kill any of the main heroes, then where is the threat? What makes him any different to the Chitari cannon fodder.

Where is it writ he has to get all of the gems? (Well, the comics I suppose, but then many things have been writ there that haven't come to pass on screen...) There are two gauntlets...

Well, if the gems are a complete set to make something, then you're going to want them all to make that thing, right?

Exactly

 

I thought the other Gauntlet was just a copy isn't it? But there was only one set of stones.

Sure, Space Brian Dennehy wants a complete set, but he'd be a bit of an incredible threat if he had them. If he had four, and our heroes had two, well, game on... It is meant to be a war, after all...

Not seen Civil War yet, is this a spoiler?  :unsure:

 

If it is I'm really sorry, have edited my post.  Have you not seen the trailer? 

 

Do you want to edit out that quote in case it is for others?
