This 4th of July weekend marked the commencement of director Taika Waititi, cast members and crew filming for Thor: Ragnarok in Australia. Shooting for the third installment about our favorite god of thunder is scheduled to be underway until October, with the possibility of production spanning through the end of the year.
Thor: Ragnarok will mark the return of Chris Hemsworth as the Odinson himself, with Tom Hiddleston as Loki, Mark Ruffalo as the Hulk, Idris Elba as Heimdall and Sir Anthony Hopkins reprising his role as Odin the All-Father. Cate Blanchett plays the mysterious and powerful new villain Hela, Jeff Goldblum stars as the eccentric Grandmaster, Tessa Thompson will bring the classic hero Valkyrie to life on the big screen, and Karl Urban will add his might to the fray as Skurge.
Kevin Feige will produce the film. Louis D’Esposito, Brad Winderbaum, Victoria Alonso, Thomas M. Hammel and Stan Lee serve as executive producers, and the film boasts a screenplay from Stephany Folsom, Craig Kyle, Eric Pearson and Christopher Yost.
Thor: Ragnarok will smash its way into theaters on November 3, 2017. Until the God of Thunder returns, stay plugged in to SEV for more Comic Nook News as it develops.
