After the relatively large casting announcement for Thor: Ragnarok last week, JoBlo is reporting some new details on the movie as well as some news on the highly anticipated Guardians of The Galaxy: Volume 2.
Let’s start with Thor: Ragnarok…
JoBlo is reporting that it will definitely have elements of the ‘Planet Hulk’ storyline, such as the Hulk being involved in a gladiator-type event, which is run by The Grandmaster (Jeff Goldblum), while sporting the comics classic armour on one of his shoulders. JoBlo is also reporting that, for Thor himself will have an almost shaven head instead of his long blonde hair as seen in previous movies. Also on the line of appearances, Valkyrie (Tessa Thompson), who also usually boasts long hair in the comics, will be displaying war paint on her face.
Now onto Guardians of The Galaxy: Volume 2…
Only one detail from JoBlo who state that the villain of the Guardians sequel will be Kismet potentially played by Elizabeth Debicki (The Great Gatsby, The M). Kismet has gone by other names in the comics such as ‘Her’, ‘Ayesha’ and ‘Paragon’.
Keep in mind that these are coming from an unnamed source so their validity is in question. It is totally possible that Marvel could be looking to adapt their ‘Planet Hulk’ storyline. If Captain America: Civil War is any indication, popular comic story-lines can make very popular movies.
