News / Thor
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! Thor: Ragnarok is directed by Taika Waititi and returns Chris Hemsworth starring as Thor and Tom Hiddleston reprising his role as Loki.
They are joined by Cate Blanchett, Idris Elba, Jeff Goldblum, Tessa Thompson and Karl Urban, with Mark Ruffalo and Anthony Hopkins.

Among the reports suggesting that "Planet Hulk" elements would factor into "Thor: Ragnarok," one noted that Hulk would engage in a gladiatorial battle on a "distant planet" at some point in the film -- and this look to confirm that.
In the original "Planet Hulk" storyline, Hulk is banished into space by an elite group of heroes called The Illuminati, consisting of Mr. Fantastic, Iron Man, Professor X, Black Bolt, Namor and Black Panther. Instead of landing on a peaceful planet, as the Illuminati intended, Hulk ends up on the planet Sakaar, a violent world in which gladiators are forced to battle for the emperor, the Red King. Hulk becomes embroiled in a rebellion that ends with him being crowned the new ruler of Sakaar.
While we don't know if Sakaar will feature in "Thor: Ragnarok," Hulk and Thor are confirmed to be taking a trip to some kind of distant planet in the film.
Directed by Taika Waititi and starring Chris Hemsworth, Tom Hiddleston, Idris Elba, Jeff Goldblum, Mark Ruffalo, Cate Blanchett, Karl Urban and Anthony Hopkins, "Thor: Ragnarok" hits theaters November 3, 2017.

Blanchett, having just received SAG and Golden Globe nominations for “Carol,” would be making her first major comic book role in “Ragnarok.”
