THOR: RAGNAROK Isn't Going To Be The PLANET HULK Movie You Were Probably Hoping For

If you expected Thor: Ragnarok to be a faithful adaptation of the Planet Hulk storyline, then you're probably going to be disappointed by this update on just how much it factors into proceedings here.

Talks of Marvel Studios making a Planet Hulk movie have persisted for years. It's become clear recently that we're never going to get a solo adventure starring the Jade Giant and now Thor: Ragnarok producer Brad Winderbaum has shed some light on how this storyline has influenced the threequel. 

While most fans didn't expect those Planet Hulk elements to completely take over Thor: Ragnarok, it actually sounds like the movie ties to the story are more incidental than they are intentional! 

"In the earliest development of Thor, we were looking at ‘Planet Hulk’ as inspiration, maybe not even to integrate the Hulk into the franchise but the idea of a planet where there’s gladiatorial games as being a Thor predicament. It really was a cool idea to us. Somewhere in the early conversations, when it looked like it was going that way, it was a no brainer. It actually started off as like, ‘…could we have Hulk in there too?’ And then as soon as that spark ignited, it ignited kind of an idea machine. And suddenly [Hulk] was married to the plot."

That's not a bad thing by any means but some fans will undoubtedly be disappointed by the fact that Planet Hulk is going to boil down to a few scenes set in The Grandmaster's arena with much of what made the story great left out. That was to be expected when this is primarily a Thor adventure, though, so it's just the way things are here. Plus, the battle between these two promises to be...incredible!
