‘Thor: Ragnarok’ Plot Details and ‘Guardians Vol. 2’ Villain Revealed

Guardians-Vol-2-Begins-Production

Details on the plots of both Thor: Ragnarok and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 have come to light from Joblo.

Speculation surrounding Thor: Ragnarok has been that the film will adapt some portion of the Planet Hulk storyline, and this indeed appears to be true. The report says Jeff Goldblum’s Grandmaster will be the character running the gladiator games Hulk is participating in. Hulk will also be wearing the one shoulder armor from the comics, so he might also have other attire similar to what he wore during the Planet Hulk storyline.

Thor is reportedly also getting a change in his appearance as he will be receiving a shaved head to some extent. Valkyrie will also be sporting a different look from the comics as she is typically a blonde-haired warrior, but Tessa Thompson will be wearing war paint on her face similar to Native American warriors.

Other Thor: Ragnarok plot details from the report include Thor tracking down the ultimate weapon to prevent Ragnarok and reset the universe. The report is unclear as to what the weapon is and how Thor gets started on his quest, but it sounds like to us that the weapon could be another Infinity Stone.

Onto Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, a villain has been confirmed. Rumors began in March that Guardians Vol. 2 would be featuring Ayesha aka Her aka Kismet aka Paragon in film as the primary villain, and according to the report this has been confirmed. As Elizebeth Debicki has not been linked to a character yet, it seems she will be playing the villain in the film.

Ayesha was created by the Enclave in the comics, a group of scientists who wished to control the world. The Enclave started their endeavor by creating the perfect genetic beings to restart humanity, the first of which being Him aka Adam Warlock, but he escaped the Enclave. Their second attempt, Her (Ayesha) also escapes to find Him who she wishes to mate with to begin the new perfect race. While it is unclear how much of Ayesha’s origin will be present in the film, she is indeed the main villain, and her presence hints at seeing Adam Warlock fairly soon as well. The report also confirms the Guardians of the Galaxy will appear in Avengers: Infinity War, which everyone figured to be the case already.

Thor: Ragnarok will hit theaters on November 3rd, 2017, while Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 will hit theaters on May 5th, 2017.

    God damn, Ragnarok is sounding more and more glorious with each bit of news that comes out! Hopefully this is true!

  • LORD OF GANGSTAS

    Just hoping they didnt merge Alisha and Adam warlock into the same character..

    • Lorenzo Ladogana

      Let’s hope they don’t merge Peter Quill and Warlock in the same character. That’s what concerne me the most.

      • Avengers+MCUspidey

        That’s what I’m guessing is happening here

        • John

          I am guessing that Kurt Russell is playing Adam Warlock and will also be Quill’s father, making Ayesha his mother.

          • TomDJ

            I’m thinking he will be too, while I don’t mind that…. I’d rather he be a standalone character who is separate from all the MCU characters we’ve seen so far. Maybe it’s just me, but when they introduce characters as family to other major characters, I find it tacky.

          • John

            But Gunn has been talking about Peter Quill’s parentage for a while now, saying that he’s changing who the father really is, and you know you need a charismatic actor playing Quill’s father and Kurt Russell seems like the right fit for his dad and if they include the character who supposedly coupled with Adam Warlock, then it just adds up…could be wrong though.

  • TomDJ

    This might be the best Thor yet! …. although that isn’t saying much.

    Planet Hulk + Ragnarok? I’m hoping for a ball-busting 3 hour+ epic 😛
