The report states Christopher Yost and Craig Kyle's "Thor: Ragnarok" script was so dark that "Marvel decided to hire a comedy director to bring a touch of lightness to the proceedings." What's more, the film will allegedly include the Valkyries, a group of women who usher Norse warriors to Valhalla once they've died in battle.
The report comes on the heels of a rumor that claims Mark Ruffalo, who played Bruce Banner/Hulk in "Avengers" and "Avengers: Age of Ultron," will appear in "Thor: Ragnarok" on a "distant planet" that is "not Asgard and not Earth."
Marvel veterans Craig Kyle and Christopher Yost will co-write the next installment of the God of Thunder's solo big-screen adventures. Starring Chris Hemsworth, "Thor: Ragnarok" is scheduled to open on July 28, 2017.
