Phase 3 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe will have a big presence this year in the world of movies, as we are getting three new films from Marvel, with Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, Spider-Man: Homecoming and Thor: Ragnarok. With the Marvel Studios films, we usually get prelude comics leading up to the film’s arrival and thanks to Amazon, we now know what to expect from Thor: Ragnarok’s comic.
“The stage is set for 2017’s far-out fantasy epic, Marvel Studios’ Thor: Ragnarok! Catch up on the incredible events of Thor: The Dark World and learn where major players including Odin, Loki and Thor himself stand ahead of the next blockbuster chapter in Asgardian lore! And revisit the origin of Ragnarok’s other headline star, the Incredible Hulk! Plus: Classic comic-book tales featuring the two mightiest Avengers of all! Thor enters the underworld to face Hela – and the Hulk does savage battle on an alien world! It’s cinematic action in the Mighty Marvel Manner!”
Based on the official synopsis for the comic, we will be revisiting Bruce Banner’s origin story, although it remains to be seen how much of Bruce’s early days we will see in the story. The prelude comic will be available for purchase as of Tuesday, October 17.
“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 gladiatorial contest that pits him against his former ally and fellow Avenger – the Incredible Hulk!”
