Chris Hemsworth has provided an update on Thor: Ragnarok while on promotional duties for his latest film, Blackhat.
As you’d expect, Hemsworth was relatively tight-lipped about the film. However, he did make some declarations to Digital Spy that revealed what stage the blockbuster is currently at.
“There is no script for Thor, the next Thor, so I have no idea where he’ll up. But it’s pretty big, this one.”
Hemsworth also explained that the events of this summer’s Avengers: Age Of Ultron will have a huge impact on the third installment to Thor’s solo adventure.
“Yeah, definitely. I mean, it has to, doesn’t it? Unless I was on the sidelines kind of waving. He’s not.”
This is the first update that has been provided regarding Thor: Ragnarok since July 2014, when Marvel president, Kevin Feige, revealed that the film’s story was still in the process of being outlined.
It’s not that surprising that Thor: Ragnarok doesn’t have a script just yet. Its release date of July 28, 2017, is still around 30 months away.
Marvel have hired Craig Kyle and Christopher Yost to work on the script for the sequel to Thor: The Dark World. That’s because Yost was behind the script for the 2013 effort, while Kyle has worked on numerous animated Marvel efforts.
Thor: Raganorak will be preceded by five additions to Marvel’s Cinematic Universe. Before July 2017, the likes of Avengers: Age Of Ultron, Ant-Man, Captain America: Civil War, Doctor Strange, and Guardians of the Galaxy 2 will hit cinemas.
Avengers: Age Of Ultron is also expected to have a major impact on Marvel’s forthcoming cinematic tales. Rumors have suggested that by its conclusion, Robert Downey, Jr.’s Iron Man and Chris Evans’ Captain America will have butted heads so severely that they will be at conflict in Captain America: Civil War.
Thor: Ragnarok will re-team Chris Hemsworth’s Thor with his villainous step-brother, Loki, who has been delightfully played by Tom Hiddleston in Thor, The Avengers, and Thor: The Dark World.
The eponymous character that Thor: Ragnarok has incorporated into its title was, in the comics, created after Tony Stark, aka Iron Man, working alongside Ant-Man’s Hank Pym to fuse Asgardian DNA with Stark technology. This resulted in a cyborg Thor, who ultimately went on to cause havoc after falling into the wrong hands.
Whether that’s what will transpire in Thor: Ragnarok remains to be seen, though.
