Thor: Ragnarok is an important movie for MCU. The third Thor movie releasing this year will put the God of Thunder against one of the biggest threats he has ever faced.

With the trailer hinting at what will be going on in the movie, fans are very excited.

Thor without Mjolnir

One of the most important things fans should be excited about is getting to see the God of Thunder without his mighty hammer, Mjolnir. Hela will destroy the weapon that was given to him by his father.

Following that he will be thrown on planet Sakaar where gladiatorial matches are common, he will have to rely on his skills.

Planet Hulk storyline

When Hulk disappeared after Avengers: Age of Ultron, many fans wondered when would the green rage monster appear next. With Thor: Ragnarok including him in the movie marks his return.

However, the exciting thing about having Hulk in the movie is that it includes elements from the Planet Hulk storyline. In the comic book, the rage monster is depicted as a gladiator who has been fighting gladiatorial matches on Sakaar.

With Thor: Ragnarok incorporating elements from that story, fans can finally see what happened to Hulk when he left planet Earth.

Loki’s new role

Loki, the most favorite character in all of MCU, will also be returning in the movie. However, this time around he will have a slightly different role. He has been posing as Odin for a while, which means fans will also get to see him ruling Asgard.

With him as the ruler of Asgard, it would be interesting to see if that has changed the God of Mischief.  Also with Hela threatening to destroy Asgard, would he step up to  save Asgard or become one of the reasons for its destruction?

Buddy movie

Heroic Hollywood reported that Thor: Ragnarok will be a buddy movie with Thor and Hulk. According to the outlet, with it being a buddy movie, it would be seen what kind of interaction will the two have.

With Hulk and Thor embarking on a journey together, it would be seen if the two end up becoming good friends or end up brawling more like their other Avengers allies.


Valkyrie has been known as an important Asgardian. In the movie, she will be seen taking refuge on the planet Sakaar and occasionally helping out the Grandmaster.

She has been declared as Thor’s new love interest and many fan theories have placed her as the next worthy character of wielding the Mjolnir.

Also, it would be seen how and when she will join Thor when he goes up against Hela. Considering her history with Hela, having her on the good side will prove to be beneficial for the God of Thunder.


Thor: Ragnarok will be Thor’s third solo outing. In the movie, he will become unworthy of wielding the Mjolnir and will find himself trapped in Sakaar.

With former Avengers ally Hulk to keep him company; Thor will have to travel back to Asgard right before Hela destroys it completely.

Thor: Ragnarok will release on Nov. 3 this year.
