What if ‘Thor: Ragnarok’ Eventually Leads us to the ‘Planet Hulk’ and ‘World War Hulk’ Storylines?

This has been talked about for quite sometime now and many are even done listening about it but what if there are some hints hidden here and there that we have not been able to look at? What if the Hulk’s inclusion in “Thor: Ragnarok” indeed is pointing out at something huge for the green raging monster?


We all remember the “Planet Hulk” storyline right? According to the story Hulk was not deemed safe to stay on Earth and was tricked into travelling out of Earth to a peaceful planet in the far wide space but eventually crash-landed at a planet called Sakaar and ended up becoming their warrior, savior and King. He later returned to Earth seeking justice for the death of his wife who died because the shuttle that brought him to Sakaar exploded.

Leaving that aside, Screen Rant reported that Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige and Mark Ruffalo have continued to maintain their statement that there are no plans for a “Planet Hulk” storyline and they haven’t even thought about it. But why is it that the recent updates about Hulk’s inclusion in “Thor: Ragnarok” reveal that the narrative will be in a place which is neither Earth nor Asgard. This also raises question about Hulk’s mysterious destination in “Avengers: Age of Ultron.” Given the fact that he will be seen in “Thor: Ragnarok,” it rules out the possibility that the Hulk’s destination in “Avengers: Age of Ultron” was somewhere on Earth. Maybe instead of being sent out of Earth, Hulk volunteered to get out of this world because he did have a realization about what kind of destruction he can do.

In order to collaborate with fellow Avenger Thor, Hulk will have to be out of Earth because the God of Thunder already left Earth to investigate the visions he was having. So it is a huge possibility that after Hulk volunteers to leave Earth, he gets spotted by Heimdall who in turn puts him in touch with Thor and that’s how the story of “Thor: Ragnarok” will proceed. Also after Hulk is done helping Thor, he will choose to stay away from Earth, specifically in the same place where “Thor: Ragnarok” is taking place.


Hypable confirmed that “Thor: Ragnarok” will take place in a “distant planet,” what are the chances that this distant planet is Sakaar? For the MCU version, Marvel could also use a different name for this distant planet so as to keep it separated from the comic book story. “Thor: Ragnarok” will release on November 3, 2017.
