While Thor was not around during the Marvel superhero ensemble blockbuster “Captain America: Civil War” shown in May this year, Marvel Studios sort of made up for it when he appeared during the post-credit scene of “Doctor Strange.”
Apparently, Marvel Studios is already setting the stage for the plotline of “Thor 3” which is officially titled “Thor: Ragnarok” after it was shown that Loki was helping Thor find his father in the short scene.
While Loki has been Thor’s nemesis during the first two movies, his half-brother would get help from Hela who is known for her magnificent magic. In fact, some are regarding her as a game-changer in Asgard which could tilt the balance between good and evil.
Hela has been chosen by Odin to become the Goddess of Death and she was chosen to guard Hel and Niffelheim but she was never contented of the realms that were given her. Unfortunately, Thor cut short her plan so she decided on conquering the afterlife world instead known as Valhalla, details the University Herald.
With her army in tow, Hela will rise to become a supervillain in “Thor: Ragnarok.” There are reports saying that Loki, again, will collaborate with Hela to defeat Thor through a dark plan that would throw the superhero god away from Asgard while demolishing his previously indestructible hammer.
So when Loki was shown in the post-credit scene of “Doctor Strange” trying to help his brother find his father, he was already scheming and putting to action his dark plan against Thor.
It also becomes clear that Doctor Strange, played by Benedict Cumberbatch, shall also appear in “Thor: Ragnarok” which would be hitting theaters on November 3, 2017.
The deceitful Hela character shall be played by Academy Award-winning actress Cate Blanchett while Thor is to be reprised by Chris Hemsworth and Loki shall once again be portrayed by Tom Hiddleston.
John Cena versus the Hulk
The appearance of the Incredible Hulk on “Thor: Ragnarok” has long been reported but there are now reports saying that the green giant shall be having a scene where he will be going up against WWE wrestler John Cena.
Hulk has been mentioned a few times in various reports and all of the stories hint at a gladiator-like fight between Cena and the Hulk.
John Cena might not be easy to take down and this could mean that the fans should expect a fiercer Hulk during their match.
Having a John Cena in “Thor: Ragnarok” shall certainly add to the already surefire blockbuster success of the 16th movie in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU).
Hela versus Heimdall
Incidentally, there are also reports saying that Hela would be going up against Heimdall, played by Idris Elba, in “Thor: Ragnarok.”
Hela’s ability to raise the dead or her dominion over the realms of the dead would be an easy way to introduce the Soul Stone as the basis of her power over the souls of the fallen.
There is a theory that Heimdall is secretly holding the Soul Stone, which comes from the idea that his eyes are of similar color to the stone, and his power to see all the souls of the nine realms is derived from it.
If Heimdall does have the Soul Stone, it is likely that Hela would battle him for it and possibly kill him too to take possession of it, poses Comicbook.com.
The possible death of Heimdall could make sense as Thor’s vision during “Avengers: Age of Ultron” features a blind Heimdall telling Thor ‘We are all dead!’ before leading into the revelation of the Infinity Stones that are now in play.
That vision suggests Heimdall has a potentially violent death ahead of him, one that may have his eyes as the prize. Since it’s been made clear that Hela will be a match for Thor’s power, killing Heimdall is certainly within her capabilities.
“Thor 3” shall follow the storyline in the “Ragnarok” comic, which gave fans the notion that supervillain Mad Titan Thanos might also be featured in the movie.
There were previous rumors saying that the reason why both Thor and the Hulk were not around in “Captain America: Civil War” shown in May this year is because they will be the biggest Marvel Avengers in “Thor: Ragnarok.”
