The Marvel studio has been busy shooting for Thor 3 with the ensemble cast including big names such as two-time Oscar award winner Cate Blanchett (Queen Elizabeth, Blue Jasmine, Carol etc) as the powerful new villain Hela (leader of Doomeo i.e Asgardian Hell); Jeff Goldblum (Independence Day, Jurassic Park) as the eccentric grandmaster who is an elder of the universe, he possessed the mind gem until Thanos took it away from him; Tessa Thomson (Creed, Selma) as the classic hero Valkyrie who may play Thor’s love interest; Karl Urban (Lord of the Rings: Return of the King, Star Trek trilogy) as Skurge who is a powerful warrior and Mark Ruffalo (Avengers, Foxcatcher, Spotlight) as Bruce Banner/ Hulk.
In the previous concept art released by Marvel, Hela was standing amongst legions of dead Asgardians bowing before her. Loki is now ruling Asgard under the mask of Odin (who is probably dead, so is probably in Doomeo), he has gained absolute control of Asgard while Thor was busy fighting Ultron on Earth. The movie is inspired by Jack Kirby’s Ragnarok comic wherein Asgard is burned to the ground and rebuilt from the ashes. He will confront an empowered Loki and Hela and has to prove he is worthy of Odin’s powers to defeat them to pave the way for a rebirth of Asgardian society.
There have been many leaks from the Thor sets, we learned that Taika Waititi will have a cameo in the film and the movie will explore the universe beyond nine realms. In the new cache of images, one can see a massive amount of Star Wars influence in the way aliens look, another image shows Thor and Hulk fighting with him wearing his gladiator armor. Finally, one of the monstrous marvel villains has been confirmed, it’s Surtur(a giant fiery monster who can do trans-dimensional teleportation, magic, and molecular manipulation). Surtur is a classic demonic figure of Thor comics who rules the Fire realm. CHEERS!
