When Guardians of the Galaxy — Mission: BREAKOUT! replaced The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror and opened in May of this year, some Disney California diehards may have been upset — but on the bright side, Tower of Terror never would have given us a glimpse at what’s to come in Thor: Ragnarok.
Thanks to a Halloween update of the ride — titled Monsters After Dark — we now know that the upcoming Thor film will be debuting yet another creature for Hulk and the God of Thunder to take on. With a tweet offering some confirmation, Surtur will have a dragon come November. This will add to Fenris Wolf and Surtur himself, which have already made appearances in trailers — the latter causing a huge stir when he was finally confirmed.

Hela, played by Cate Balnchett, should be more than enough to face without a dragon coming into play. And while it looks like the Goddess of Death does show up early on in the film to set off the events of Ragnarok, the three other creatures could shape up to be obstacles along the way of Thor and Hulk’s “road trip” portion of the movie that has been teased since the beginning of production, but hard to pick up on since marketing kicked off. If there was once thing missing from the ’80s vibe of Thor: Ragnarok, a dragon just might have been it.
Directed by Taika Waititi, Ragnarok stars Chris Hemsworth, Tom Hiddleston, Cate Blanchett, Idris Elba, Jeff Goldblum, Tessa Thompson, Karl Urban, Mark Ruffalo and Anthony Hopkins. Here’s the official synopsis:
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!
Thor: Ragnarok hits theaters Nov. 3.
5 Thor Stories That Should Be Used For Future Marvel Movies
After those amazing Thor: Ragnarok trailers, everyone’s talking about Odinson. This looks like a fun movie, and it makes me excited for where they might take Thor in the future. After Avengers: Infinity War, Thor is fair game for Marvel Studios (and hopefully Taika Waititi again) to do whatever they want with him.
There are some amazing Thor stories in the Marvel catalog for them to take inspiration from. I think that’s pretty key at this point, for them to just take inspiration from these stories and not follow the plot 100 percent. The Marvel Cinematic Universe is just too different compared to the Marvel Comics line, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t some amazing stories the movies could emulate.
So here are five Thor stories that should be used for future movies. Hit Next to find out more!
