Geekery: On the Set of ‘Thor: Ragnarok’
Come see what Marvel Studios has in store for Asgard…
Not a lot is known right now about the plot beyond what we can glean from the cast –
Karl Urban (Skurge), Tom Hiddleston (Loki), Chris Hemsworth (Thor), Idris Elba (Heimdall), Cate Blanchett (Hela), Mark Ruffalo (Bruce Banner/Hulk), Jeff Goldblum (Grandmaster), Anthony Hopkins (Odin), and Tessa Thompson (Valkyrie).
Lots of returning faces. The new, good guys first: Valkyrie aka Brunnhilde is a warrior Asgard; born as a mortal and selected by Thor to to lead the Valkyrior. She’s been a member of the Defenders and the Secret Avengers, and protects humanity like Thor
And the baddies: Skurge aka The Executioner has been a constant enemy of Thor since the early 1960s. The Grandmaster aka En Dwi Gast is a member of the Elders of the Universe along with The Collector and Ego. He’s an immortal with a list of cosmic abilities a mile long, and is obsessed with games and their mastery. His inclusion gives a large hint at where this may be headed.
Hela is Asgardian goddess of death and she rules over Hel and Niffelheim. She’s a formidable foe. Marvel has given us a glimpse of her army….
Christopher Yost is on the screenplay, along with a host of other MCU regulars. Director on the project is Taika Waititi – who has a strong feet in comedy and fantasy, but will no doubt have to prove himself everywhere else.
Then there are the on set peeks…
