Are you ready for Marvel Studios’ latest offering? What do you need to know before heading to the cinemas and what should you look out for?
Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered! Here are 10 things you may or may not have known about Thor: Ragnarok.
1. Ragnarok translates to “The End of the universe” in Norse mythology
Does this mean, Asgard is doomed?
2. This movie features Marvel’s first female villain
Can’t believe all the bad guys have been men. And wow first female villain and we’ve got the amazing Cate Blanchett
3. There are 2,500 costumes designed for this movie
It’s going to be a comic, futuristic, alien fashion spectacle. Favourites include Valkyrie and Hela….the Grandmaster has his moments too!
4. Chris Hemsworth handed out free pizza while filming
Chris Hemsworth also had fun handing out pizzas to the Brisbane crowds, which were purchased by the production’s location manager
5. A different take on the original comic arc was recently published
The most recent Ragnarok comic storyline involves Thor receiving the Odinpower after his father dies and turning into a bit of a tyrant. Woah we hope this isn’t the story line they’re going for with this movie.
6. In the comic book adaptation, Thor dies
Nah we don’t think that will happen in this movie.
7. It’s a big deal in the MCU
Marvel Studios is treating this movie as a stepping stone for the next phase of Marvel movies. Kevin Feige said that the studio plans on taking Thor to another level.
8. Chris Hemsworth is in love with Cate Blanchett
“Oh, I’m in love with Cate. You know, my wife is, too, so I can say that [laughs]. The fearlessness. … she’s just … insanely funny and smart and talented. Sort of too good to be true—kind of, like, what’s the catch?”

9. Jane Foster is gone
We wonder if Natalie Portman might have pissed off someone at Marvel Studios
10. Doctor Strange is in it
Yes, the sorcerer supreme makes an appearance and it is quite entertaining.
