Marvel has released the first official behind the scenes look at the upcoming third outing for the Asgardian hero titled Thor: Ragnarok. The photo features Chris Hemsworth being directed by Taika Waititi. The film has been rumored to be a sort of buddy cop road movie in space featuring Thor and Hulk but thanks to the release of the film’s official synopsis, it seems the two will instead be pitted against each other.
“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!”
The film stars Chris Hemsworth, Tom Hiddleston, Idris Elba, Anthony Hopkins, Cate Blanchett, Tessa Thompson, Jeff Goldblum, Karl Urban and Mark Ruffalo. Written by Stephen Folsom, Craig Kyle, Eric Pearson, and Christopher Yost. Directed by Taika Waititi.
Thor: Ragnarok hits theaters November 3, 2017.
