SEV’s Comic Nook News: The Skinny on Thor: Ragnarok and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2

Marvel Studios is hard at work with their upcoming slew of superhero films. The much-anticipated sequel to 2014’s Guardians of the Galaxy and the third installment to the Thor franchise are both in production. The fine folks over at JoBlo have given us some juicy bits of info from the set.

The outlet tells us that a character named Ayesha, aka Her/Kismet/Paragon, will serve as the antagonist for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2. Created by a group of scientists and named “Her” as a replacement to their first experiment, “Him,” who comic fans will know is Adam Warlock (oh yeah, they’re going there). In the source material, Ayesha would go on to seek out Adam Warlock so the pair could start a new perfect race of beings together. A previously-stated theory about Adam Warlock being Peter Quill’s father could spark the confrontation between Ayesha and the Guardians. Does this bit of news add credence that theory?

 JoBlo also gave more details about Thor: Ragnarok, stating a “road trip” aspect for the third Thor flick, wherein the thunder god will journey to find a weapon that can stop Ragnarok (the end of all things in Norse mythology). Thor will be rocking a shaved head for at least part of the film and that Tessa Thompson’s Valkyrie will apparently present a different appearance in the film than her comic book source character, sporting a decorated face in war paint.

Lastly, a note that Ragnarok will be incorporating elements from the long-wanted, heavily rumored, ever-postponed Planet Hulk storyline, wherein Bruce Banner’s green alter ego is battling it out in gladiatorial games. Jeff Goldblum’s Grandmaster is stated to be the one behind these gladiatorial games and that The Hulk is rumored to be wearing the fan-favorite armor from the comic.

As always, stay plugged in to SEV for more Comic Nook News as it develops.
