We have two entries within the Marvel Cinematic Universe left before the 10-year culmination of Avengers: Infinity War hits theaters next summer. The first of those two films will be Thor: Ragnarok, where we will see the God of Thunder and the Incredible Hulk on an exciting adventure right before they reunite with their fellow Avengers for their biggest threat yet: Thanos.
For those lucky enough to see the Infinity War footage that was screened at the D23 Expo and San Diego Comic-Con, the first scene of that teaser involved the Guardians of the Galaxy inside the Milano when a mysterious figure crashes into their windshield. It turns out that the Guardians have found Thor, who was floating through space unconscious for an unknown reason until he is brought inside the ship and wakes up, becoming the first Avenger to meet the Guardians.
Chris Hemsworth made an appearance during Marvel Studios’ panel at San Diego Comic-Con this year alongside his Ragnarok director Taika Waititi and the rest of the cast. While at Comic-Con, Hemsworth was asked about whether or not Ragnarok will set up his fateful meeting with the Guardians in Infinity War:
“It is. I think so. I think you’ll have to watch our film first to understand what Avengers is about.”
One of the most anticipated elements within Infinity War is to see Earth’s Mightiest Heroes assemble alongside the Guardians of the Galaxy onscreen together for the first time. Just seeing an Avenger share the screen with these galactic heroes left the crowds at Hall H feeling electric.
Here’s the synopsis for Marvel’s Thor: Ragnarok:
Imprisoned on the other side of the universe, the mighty Thor (Chris Hemsworth) finds himself in a deadly gladiatorial contest that pits him against the Hulk (Mark Ruffalo), his former ally and fellow Avenger. Thor’s quest for survival leads him in a race against time to prevent the all-powerful Hela (Cate Blanchett) from destroying his home world and the Asgardian civilization.
Directed by Taika Waititi, the film stars Chris Hemsworth, Tom Hiddleston, Cate Blanchett, Mark Ruffalo, Tessa Thompson, Idris Elba, Karl Urban, and Jeff Goldblum.
Marvel’s Thor: Ragnarok hits theaters November 3rd.
Top 5 Moments From D23’s ‘Avengers: Infinity War’ Sneak Peek
Disney broke the internet on Saturday when they showed the first footage from Avengers: Infinity War at the D23 Expo in Anaheim, CA. Lucky for all you guys, I was in the room and made a mental list of all the best moments from the teaser. While the movie only just reached the production half-way mark, the footage director Joe Russo showed to the audience still included some epic moments.
It wasn’t a trailer per se — more so just a compilation of random moments designed to excite the audience. Whatever you want to call it, it did a great job of expressing how emotionally charged this movie will be. Remember, this is the conclusion of nearly ten years worth of stories, so expect some big action and tear jerking moments as Marvel Studios starts to shift towards Phase 4 and a new game plan.
