<font color=red>SPOILERS:</font> Kevin Feige Offers An Explanation For The Warriors Three's Fate In THOR: RAGNAROK

The Warriors Three make a very brief appearance in Thor: Ragnarok and now Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige has offered an explanation for why the fan-favourite trio was given such little screentime.

It goes without saying that spoilers for Thor: Ragnarok follow, so if you haven't seen the movie, you should stop reading now! Still with us? Well, in the Marvel Studios threequel, Volstagg and Fandral are killed immediately by Hela when she arrives on Asgard and while Hogun manages to put up a slightly better fight, he too winds up being impaled by the Goddess of Death. That's it for The Warriors Three!

During a recent Q&A, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige was asked why exactly the fan-favourite trio 
were handled this way and it seems it all boils down to ensuring that Hela made a big impact.

"Well, it was a – they, they had noble ends – mainly to serve the arrival of Hela, the arrival of the biggest villain into the MCU, who within the first five minutes destroys the hammer, kicks Loki and Thor out of Asgard, and kills almost anyone we’ve ever met before in the other movies. Which is really – we want it to start with a bang."

It's a shame that Marvel decided to treat The Warriors Three like this as they were never really given the opportunity to shine in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. They could have done, of course, but the time for that has passed so here's hoping Heimdall at least gets a decent role in Avengers: Infinity War!

Sif remains M.I.A. but Feige has previously hinted that she could show up elsewhere so we're just going to have to wait and see how things pan out for that particular Asgardian. What do you guys think?
