There is still over a year left (519 days to be exact, but who’s counting?) until Thor: Ragnarok graces us with its presence in movie theaters on July 28th, 2017, but that has not stopped the speculation, rumors, and debate on what the movie will be about, who will be cast, and how exactly it will fit into the brilliant web of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Among several cast announcements, Mark Ruffalo’s return as the beastly Hulk was confirmed and MCU Overlord Kevin Feige revealed that the setting of the movie was to be mostly taking place in the cosmos and not on Earth. According to a report by Joblo.com, Thor: Ragnarok will feature elements from Planet Hulk which means SPACE HULK! Well, more like Hulk Hunger Games. According to the 2006 The Incredible Hulk comics, the people of Earth (well, Illuminati) decide Hulk is far too powerful and trick him into getting on a shuttle under the guise of helping with a rogue satellite.
The intent was to shoot him into the cosmos to find a nice, happy planet to live out the rest of his green life. Unfortunately someone screwed up the coordinates and he hit a wormhole that instead dropped him on a planet where gladiatorial combat is life. To the surprise of no one, Hulk ends up doing really well for himself on Planet Hulk and eventually comes back to Earth to get his revenge. Specific details on how movie Hulk ends up on Planet Hulk have not been revealed, but he is apparently getting a bit of a costume overhaul with some single shouldered armor that is depicted in the comic books.
Naturally Planet Hulk doesn’t just run by itself, and Jeff Goldblum will be The Grandmaster. We shall see how he fares over President Snow’s Gamemaker lackey’s. Other cast members include: Karl Urban as Skurge, Cate Blanchett as Hela, and Tessa Thompson as Valkyrie (who is also rumored to be Thor’s new love interest with Jane being out of the picture).
