We recently learned that Thor: Ragnarok will begin filming on July 4th.

The Gold Coast Bulletin also had a chance to speak with director Taika Waititi, who had the following to say about collaborating with Marvel Studios and the rest of the team behind the highly anticipated movie over the past few months:

“I’ve been hanging out with Chris and I’ve been working on the script with the writer, designing swords and things and looking at pieces of armour. I am an outside choice for Thor for sure – even I see that – but that’s what’s good about Marvel, what’s great about it. They’re able to do that and it’s paid off for them – getting people who aren’t the natural choice. You see it again and again, so I’m very comfortable in the role. I’m weirdly relaxed.”

Starring Chris Hemsworth, Tom Hiddleston, Idris Elba, Sir Anthony Hopkins and newcomers Mark Ruffalo, Cate Blanchett, Jeff Goldblum, Tessa Thompson and Karl Urban, Thor: Ragnarok opens in theaters on November 3, 2017. Are you excited?

    I’m excited, but I never understood why Hulk needed a battle axe or armor.

    I agree but it may be a requirement for fighting as a Gladiator. Even tho his fists are as tough or tougher than those weapons, previous movies have shown that he loves to use pieces of a car or truck to enhance his blows…go figure.

    Hulk doesn’t need the excess armor. He already fights like a gladiator. He’s stronger than a gladiator. Just because he’s on Thor’s planet doesn’t mean he needs to look like Russell Crowe

    • Peter James

      Familiarize yourself with ‘Planet Hulk’ and ‘World War Hulk’ to know why he wears the armor.

      • Jason Scarpelli

        I didn’t say I wasn’t familiar with the Planet Hulk story. He just doesn’t need it to fight. Like i said.

        • Sam

          If you were familiar with it you’d know that in Sakaar, the world were planet hulk is set on, he needs the armor and the battle axe because his strength is weakened because of the gravitational phenomena in Sakaar.

          • Jason Scarpelli

            I am familiar with it. My point being that I wrote is Hulk technically doesn’t need armor to fight normally. And I mentioned Thor’s planet of Asgard not Sakaar

    “Why does Hulk need armor?”

    Hulk is fighting in a gladiatorial arena where pageantry is part an parcel if the spectacle. The armor is just as much an element of pageantry as it is for defense. It’s like having the right dress for the ball. The Hulk we saw in Planet Hulk was intelligent and we saw evidence of intelligence in the MCU Hulk at the end of Age of Ultron. So he might see the appeal of pageantry. Second, we have no idea what kind of world this arena is on. In the Planet Hulk story Hulk’s strength was weakened by Sakaar’s gravitational phenomena as was the Silver Surfer. So he might actually need the armor.


    So, this is Marvel’s way of doing Planet Hulk?
