Earlier today, the Gladiator Hulk Armor from Thor: Ragnarok was previewed, and now Marvel‘s San Diego Comic-Con Hall H panel has revealed what fans have been hoping for months: the Planet Hulk storyline WILL be incorporated during the events of Thor: Ragnarok! Concept art showed Hulk in the armor inspired by the classic Greg Pak comics series, as well as a rendering of Thor and Hulk clashing in an arena. Marvel also revealed a spiffy new logo for the film, which you can check out in the gallery below!
Thor: Ragnarok will feature the return of Chris Hemsworth as the God of Thunder himself, with Tom Hiddleston as Loki, Mark Ruffalo as the Hulk, Idris Elba as Heimdall and Sir Anthony Hopkins again portraying Odin. Cate Blanchett plays the mysterious and powerful new villain Hela, Jeff Goldblum stars as the eccentric Grandmaster, Tessa Thompson will bring the classic hero Valkyrie to life on the big screen, and Karl Urban will add his might to the fray as Skurge.
Kevin Feige will produce the film, joined by executive producers Louis D’Esposito, Brad Winderbaum, Victoria Alonso, Thomas M. Hammel and Stan Lee. The screenplay hails from Stephany Folsom, Craig Kyle, Eric Pearson and Christopher Yost. Current plans call for the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s “Phase Three” chapter to shoot until October, although production could feasibly continue through the end of the year.
Directed by Taika Waititi, Thor: Ragnarok will smash its way into theaters on November 3, 2017.
