Is Thor Fighting Thanos In Ragnarok?


Thor is going to have a lot to deal with in 2017 with Thor: Ragnarok. In addition to his brother Loki still being alive (and disguised as Odin, to add insult to injury), the titular apocalyptic event threatens to destroy all Asgardians. That’s not even taking into account whatever new villain they bring aboard (my guess is Surtur). It’s safe to say this will be the God of Thunder’s most explosive solo adventure yet, but it has more importance beyond his series of films. Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige has gone on record saying that not only is Thor: Ragnarok an important Phase 3 movie, but it will impact everything that comes after. What are the biggest MCU projects in 2018 and 2019? The Avengers: Infinity War movies, of course. This leads to a question on our minds: Will Thor end up fighting Thanos in Thor: Ragnarok?

Thought it was clear that its Surtur that is the main villian. Can only see Thanos taking the Gaunlet after Surturs laid waste to Asgard leaving Thanos to walk straight in, grab the Gauntlet, take the space gem from the Tesseract which is powering the BiFrost, pop the gem in the gaunlet, then off he goes on his travels jumping from realm to realm collecting each gem.

The meeting with the Collector will be very interesting, Xander will be destroyed, and its clear the vision will die.

Where was it made clear Surtur was the villain? Or are you just assuming that?

Because I used the time gem and have seen the movie already.. Do not worry, I won't spoil the rest for you.

I figured any kind of Thanos fight would be reserved for Avengers: Infinity War Parts 1+2.

Maybe they can establish just how strong and evil Thanos is for that Avengers movie.

Right now for anyone who isn't a comic fan, they have no idea what this Thanos is all about. Some where in one of these marvel movies they are going to have to establish exactly who Thanos is, what is he trying to do and why he is so bad a##.

I like the 'Thor' movies, i really do, they're fun and for some reason they get hated on quite a bit.

But I don't know about the rest of you guys.. I'm actually starting to get burnt out by all the Marvel movies, it's like they announce one every other week..

I'll be honest, i didn't care for 'Age of Ultron' I have no desire for 'Ant-Man' (that might change, but for now, no) The only Marvel movie I'm actually looking forward too is 'Captain America: Civil War' especially after the excellent 'Winter Soldier'.

I think the MCU would be much more fitted for TV or even a (good) cartoon. Seriously, we're probably never going to see Ultron or Red Skull again, when in the comics they do make meaningful returns every once and a while. Not to mention we have to wait a year or a half year for a 2 hour movie to come out.

I'm going to assume the whole Civil War thing will only really be a factor in the Civil War film, when in the comic world, there were tons of comics regarding the Civil War story.

I only like one here and there. The only ones I truly liked where GOTG, The Avengers (although massively overrated), Cap2 and the first Iron man. The rest are just not really watchable for me. All have forgettable one note baddies, and paper thin plots that try really hard to interconnect the universe instead of focusing on it's current plate, all while being held together by a plethora of jokes. Which isn't bad per se, just not my thing. Those movies I mentioned though stand out, they can be enjoyed on their own without the need to retrace past films or the intention to go forward with the franchise.

I guess what I'm saying is my excitement wasn't too grand from the start so I wouldn't mind if this went on for another 20 years.

As for the article, I don't care who Thor is fighting so long as his movie is given the proper attention. I feel the first 2 films were sloppy and i know for certain that Thor is a good character capable of so much more.

They said the same thing about Winter Soldier. "It's big and it impacts all the movies afterwards." Yet Pretty much everything in that movie was brushed over and ignored in Avengers...

Two big things that happened.

Agents had spies in their system and betrayed Captain. The show fixed that, and the movie was like "eh, fine welcome back."

Captain A and Black Widow clearly had a thing going on, then in Avengers out of the blue comes a Hulk and Widow love.... what?

So I bet what happens in Thor is basically the same thing. It'll be big events that SHOULD change the dynamic of the universe, but it'll be fixed come Civil War or Avengers.

Yup...SHIELD is supposedly dissembled and yet lo and behold in Avengers 2 a huge Heli-Carrier pops in from no where with a full
