When it was revealed that Thor Ragnarok will feature fellow Avenger The Hulk, many speculated how the character would be involved. Both Thor and The Hulk, in past movies, have little interactions so it was surprising to hear that the duo would be going on an adventure in the third movie.
Other mysteries also started popping up, like the mystery of the missing Hammer. Thor had always used Mjolnir since the first film, and fans were shocked when Infinity War concept art showcased the hero with another weapon. All these questions finally were answered with the first publication of the film’s promo.
Entertainment Weekly was the first magazine to have an exclusive first interview for the Ragnarok promotions. The magazine also featured a new synopsis of the film that seems to elaborate more details about the upcoming film.The summary says:
“When we last saw Thor, he was flying off to figure out who was manipulating the Avengers at the end of Age of Ultron. Eventually, he hears rumblings of trouble in Asgard: His evil brother, Loki (Tom Hiddleston), has been impersonating their missing father, Odin (Anthony Hopkins). Loki’s rather lax governing leads to the reemergence of an imprisoned Hela (Cate Blanchett). Thor’s initial encounter with Hela gets him blasted to Sakaar, a barbaric planet ruled by the charming but nefarious Grandmaster (Jeff Goldblum). Valkyrie (Tessa Thompson), a tough, hard-drinking warrior hiding out on Sakaar brings the god to the Grandmaster. Thor is then forced into becoming a gladiator, which leads to his haircut and the loss of his trusty hammer.”
The new plotline reveals just how diverse Thor’s adventures will be for movie and why he has parted with his trusty weapon. As for Hulk, he has become a rockstar in Sakaar as he is the most popular gladiator who fights for The Grandmaster. “He’s much more of a character than the green rage machine you’ve seen in the Avengers movies,” Ruffalo says of this new Hulk. “He’s got a swagger. He’s like a god.”
