For years, comic book fans have been hoping that Marvel would adapt Planet Hulk, but with the distribution rights for the character tied up at Universal, that’s simply impossible. It’s a good job then that the Jade Giant has a starring role in Thor: Ragnarok, because JoBlo.com has revealed that the movie is going to borrow elements from that beloved storyline.
The movie will apparently feature a mash-up of sorts between Ragnarok and Planet Hulk, and that will include a gladiatorial arena where both Thor and The Hulk (who will be wearing his armour from the source material) will be forced to compete by Jeff Goldblum’s Grandmaster.
The God of Thunder is going to have a very different look too because Chris Hemsworth will be sporting a shaved head for some of Thor: Ragnarok. Tessa Thompson’s Valkyrie meanwhile will, “be wearing war paint on her face, much like a Native American warrior.”
The site has also confirmed that The Night Manager’s Elizabeth Debicki is playing Ayesha/Her/Kismet/Paragon in Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 2, and confirm that the team will appear in Avengers: Infinity War. That’s something fans have expected for a while now, and you just know that it’s going to be fun seeing Iron Man meet Rocket Raccoon…
