Last October, Marvel Studios announced that Mark Ruffalo's Hulk will appear in "Thor: Ragnarok," but they weren't quite clear on how he would he would bump into the Asgardian God of Thunder. A new report from JoBlo claims that Thor will encounter Hulk as the latter engages in a gladiatorial battle on a distant planet.
Though the report doesn't specify just how Hulk and Thor end up on said planet, it looks like Jeff Goldblum's Grandmaster will play a role in it: Hulk will be a participant in the Grandmaster's games, and he'll be wearing the one-shoulder armor from Greg Pak, Carlo Pagulayan and Aaron Lopresti's "Planet Hulk" run when Thor finds him.
Hulk won't be the only one with a new look. Allegedly, Thor's long locks won't be making an appearance, and the Asgardian will rock a shaved head instead. Additionally, Tessa Thompson's Valkyrie will have an updated appearance and wear war paint on her face.
Additionally, the report pins Elizabeth Debicki as the primary antagonist in "Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2." Allegedly, she will play Ayesha, who also goes by Her, Kismet and Paragon. Like Adam Warlock, she was created by the Enclave, a group of scientists who attempted to create the perfect genetic being. In the comics, Ayesha was the Enclave's second creation, following only Adam Warlock, who she considers to be her perfect mate; as such, she seeks him out in order to propagate a new perfect race.
Directed by Taika Waititi and starring Chris Hemsworth, "Thor: Ragnarok" is scheduled to open on November 3, 2017. Directed by James Gunn and starring Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana and Dave Bautista, "Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2" opens on May 5, 2017.
