Thor: Ragnarok will introduce the Grandmaster to the Marvel Cinematic Universe with Jeff Goldblum portraying the eccentric ruler of the planet Sakaar. Earlier this year, fans learned that the Grandmaster was the brother of Benicio del Toro’s The Collector, who appeared in the first Guardians of the Galaxy film. Since then fans have been wondering if the siblings may appear on screen together in a future Marvel film and Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige recently discussed the possibility during an interview with Fandango.
Feige stated that he hopes both characters can appear together in the same scene during a future Marvel film:
“It would be awesome man. It would be great. We love the idea that they’re brothers. If you go on the Guardians of the Galaxy: Mission Breakout attraction at California Adventure in Anaheim, you will see a picture on Collector’s wall of he and the Grandmaster playing some sort of a space chess game, which right now is the only place you can see the two of them in a frame together, but let’s hope that changes someday.”
When it was suggested that the aforementioned picture is teasing a scene from a future Marvel film, Feige replied, “Exactly!”
Fans will have to wait and see what the future holds for the siblings, but Jeff Goldblum recently hinted that we could see the Grandmaster return soon rather than later.
In Marvel Studios’ “Thor: Ragnarok“, Thor is imprisoned on the other side of the universe without his mighty hammer and finds himself in a race against time to get back to Asgard to stop Ragnarok – the destruction of his homeworld and the end of Asgardian civilization – at the hands of an all-powerful new threat, the ruthless Hela. But first he must survive a deadly gladictorial contest that pits him against his former ally and fellow Avenger – the Incredible Hulk!
Directed by Taika Waititi, the film stars Chris Hemsworth, Tom Hiddleston, Cate Blanchett, Idris Elba, Jeff Goldblum, Tessa Thompson, Karl Urban, Mark Ruffalo and Anthony Hopkins.
Thor: Ragnarok will be released in theaters on November 3, 2017.
