Avengers: Age of Ultron will affect the events of the upcoming Thor: Ragnarok. The outcome? It’s going to be something big.
During an interview with Digital Spy, the 31-year-old Norse God revealed that big events are heading Thor’s way… and they’ll even connect to Avengers: Age of Ultron.
“Yeah, definitely… I mean, it has to, doesn’t it?” he said with a laugh. “Unless I was standing on the side lines kinda waving, but… he’s not.”
Of course, there have been plenty of hints that something big is coming to Asgard… and with a scene between Iron Man and Cap revealing that the Scarlet Witch has showed Thor something that he probably doesn’t want to see, it looks as though we can expect bad things for everyone’s favourite deity.
But can Hemwsorth give us any hints about what to expect?
“No I can’t [give away any hints],” he said. “But also there is no script for Thor – the next Thor – so I have no idea where we’re going to end up. But it’s pretty big, this one.”
Obviously, there are hints that something big is coming even in the name – Thor: Ragnarok. In Norse mythology, Ragnarok sees the death of many Norse deities, including Odin, Thor, Freyr, and even Loki. But in the comic books, it’s not quite the same…
Within Marvel comic book lore, Ragnarok is a cyborg clone of Thor who appears during Marvel’s Civil War created by Tony Stark to aid the pro-registration forces. But is this what Marvel has in mind for Ragnarok?
It certainly makes a lot of sense – after all, Marvel is introducing Civil War to its Cinematic Universe within the confines of a Captain America sequel. But does this mean we’ll see Thor cloned by the events of Civil War?
For now, we’ll have to wait and see… but it’s just as easy to see the cataclysmic events of the Norse Ragnarok play out on the big screen.
Perhaps it’ll be a bit of both. But for the time being, your guess is as good as ours.
Thor: Ragnarok heads to cinemas on 28 July 2017.
