<font color=red>SPOILERS:</font> THOR: RAGNAROK Co-Writer Explains The Movie's Surprising Ending

Thor: Ragnarok co-writer Eric Pearson has shed some light on how the movie's final act was conceived and sheds some light on the decisions made by the God of Thunder and what comes next for Asgard.

Thor: Ragnarok takes us to places it's fair to say no one could have predicted and that includes the destruction of Asgard at the hands of Surtur. As a result of that, the God of Thunder takes Asgard's citizens to safety on a massive spaceship once owned by The Grandmaster and is heading to Earth until Thanos' massive vessel - known as The Sanctuary II - stops the hero and his brother in their tracks. 

Blowing Asgard up is obviously a game changer and in a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Thor: Ragnarok co-writer Eric Pearson has explained the movie's ending and what might come next.


"I forget exactly how that idea came up, but I remember bringing it up right at the beginning. One of the previous works had Asgard not really being destroyed, or being rebuilt or something. Well, it's Ragnarok. That means apocalypse in Norse mythology. Don't we got to blow it up? We really got to do it here, and I think we can't be scared of it. The idea of making Thor a quasi-Noah figure ... in getting everyone onto the arc to preserve them — I think I knew right from the beginning we had to do that. It was more about the tricky thing of making it Thor's choice. It wasn't that he just lost a huge battle. He learned something more about being a ruler that the people are the kingdom, not the space itself. As a king, as a selfless king, you've got to make sacrifices. We tried to present him with a no-win scenario, and he made the right choice to continue on the Asgardian lineage, as opposed to trying to punch his problems to death."

After seeing Thor: Ragnarok, it's clear that the new King of Asgard is never going to be the same again and what happens next to his people promises to be very interesting. Will Marvel follow the comic books and create a new Asgard on Earth or is Thanos going to wipe them all out when he attacks Thor?
