The Script For THOR: RAGNAROK Is Reportedly Marvel's Darkest Yet; Valkyrie To Appear?

Yesterday we heard a pretty exciting rumor about the Hulk potentially appearing in Thor: Ragnarok. Now a new report has revealed that Banner might not be the only new character on board - adding that the script is Marvel's darkest yet, and possesses an "apocalyptic vibe"...


 
Thor's had a bit of a rocky ride in the MCU so far. While both Thor & Thor: The Dark World have earned their fair share of fans, neither have really stunned audiences in the same way that other solo flicks like Iron Man or Captain America: The Winter Soldier did. Phase 3 could be the God of Thunder's time to shine though, and according to a new report from Devin Faraci (of Birth.Movies.Death), it sounds like Marvel are about to change up the series' tone - dramatically.

A few fans were left scratching their heads when Taika Waititi was brought on board to helm Thor: Ragnarok. The talented writer/director has acheived plenty of success - but predominantly in the comedy genre. According to BMD, this was the exact reason why he was hired by Marvel - "to bring a touch of lightness" to Christopher Yost's very dark script - which is said to have an "apocalyptic vibe". A bit of a change from watching Darcy & co. bumbling around on Earth, eh?

Faraci also delves into a few story details, so a minor SPOILER warning from here on out. He began by confirming JoBlo's recent scoop about the Hulk appearing in the threequel - and maintained that the character will play "a major role" as Thor & Hulk take "a cosmic road trip together, Hope and Crosby style". While on that journey, they'll meet the group called the Valkyries. Their inclusion could lead to major roles for both the former Defenders heroine Valkyrie, and her fan-favorite nemesis, The Enchantress. Faraci adds that he's less certain about these plot points, but resolutely states that Marvel are "looking to 
cast some great women in this movie".

Both JoBlo and Faraci/BMD have a great track record when it comes to the world of Marvel scoops, but it's probably best to treat these as rumors for the moment. If they are true, what do you think of a darker Thor movie? Is it needed, or do you think the franchise was just fine without any apocalyptic vibes. And how excited are you to see both Valkyrie and Enchantress in the MCU?
