Director Taika Waititi has been keeping fans posted on his Marvel Phase 3 adventure Thor: Ragnarok, ever since filming began on the 4th of July in Australia. Now it seems that production is coming to a close, with Taika Waititi posting what may be one of his last photos from the set, featuring the filmmaker flanked by the chairs used by Loki (Tom Hiddleston) and Thor (Chris Hemsworth). According to the director, there are just two days left of principal photography on this superhero sequel.
The director posted his latest photo on Twitter this morning, stating that he's "gonna miss this pair of idiots." It isn't known when Marvel plans on unveiling the first trailer for Thor: Ragnarok yet, but, last week, a fan trailer surfaced that quickly went viral and got fans even more excited for this sequel. Until we get news on the first trailer, this latest photo from the set will have to suffice.
Last month, new cast member Karl Urban, who plays Skurge in this sequel, revealed that he had wrapped, leading many fans to assume that principal photography was nearly done. The film will wrap almost exactly one year before it's scheduled to hit theaters on November 3, 2017, giving director Taika Waititi and his team plenty of time to work on post-production. Marvel still hasn't released any official story details, but there have been plenty of rumors circulating.
When Mark Ruffalo was confirmed to return as Hulk reports surfaced that both Thor and Hulk will take a "cosmic road trip," and that this story will be partially based on the iconic Planet Hulk comics. According to rumors, Loki teams up with the new villain Hela (Cate Blanchett), who destroys Thor's hammer Mjolnir and banishes Thor from Asgard. Thor ends up on a gladiator planet where he's forced to face the current champion, Hulk. Marvel showcased this Planet Hulk armor for fans at Comic-Con this past summer.
Thor: Ragnarok features several returning Thor franchise mainstays, such as Tom Hiddleston (Loki), Anthony Hopkins (Odin) and Idris Elba (Heimdall). This sequel will also bring new cast members into the fold such as Tessa Thompson (Valkyrie), Cate Blanchett (Hela), Karl Urban (Skurge) and Jeff Goldblum (The Grandmaster).
