Doctor Strange Confirmed for Thor: Ragnarok

Doctor Strange Confirmed for Thor: Ragnarok

Great news about Thor: Ragnarok movie!

Although it’s not entirely a surprise given the end-credits sequence of his own recent solo film, Benedict Cumberbatch’s Doctor Strange is now confirmed to play a part in Marvel Studios‘ upcoming Thor: Ragnarok. In a preview of what the company has to offer in 2017, Disney‘s official fan club D23 highlights the Taika Waititi film with the following description:

“Thor: Ragnarok in November brings together Thor, the Hulk, and Doctor Strange to face off against intergalactic baddies both familiar and new.”

As to how large a role Strange will play in the film, only time will tell. Hulk and Strange do have quite a comic book history together having teamed (alongside Namor) to form the original Defenders in 1971. A very different Defenders lineup is slated to hit Netflix later this year.

Thor: Ragnarok will feature the return of Chris Hemsworth as the God of Thunder himself, with Tom Hiddleston as Loki, Mark Ruffalo as the Hulk, Idris Elba as Heimdall and Sir Anthony Hopkins again portraying Odin. Cate Blanchett plays the mysterious and powerful new villain Hela, Jeff Goldblum stars as the eccentric Grandmaster, Tessa Thompson will bring the classic hero Valkyrie to life on the big screen, and Karl Urban will add his might to the fray as Skurge. Also among the cast is Sam Neill, reuniting with Waititi, who directed him in his previous film Hunt for the Wilderpeople, and his Jurassic Park co-star Jeff Goldblum.

Kevin Feige will produce the film, joined by executive producers Louis D’Esposito, Brad Winderbaum, Victoria Alonso, Thomas M. Hammel and Stan Lee. The screenplay hails from Stephany Folsom, Craig Kyle, Eric Pearson and Christopher Yost.

Two-time Oscar®-winner Cate Blanchett (“Blue Jasmine,” “Carol, “Cinderella”) joins Marvel Studios’ “Thor: Ragnarok” as the mysterious and powerful new villain Hela, along with Jeff Goldblum (the upcoming “Independence Day: Resurgence,” “The Grand Budapest Hotel,” “Jurassic Park”) who joins the cast as the eccentric Grandmaster, Tessa Thompson (“Creed,” “Selma”) who will bring the classic hero Valkyrie to life on the big screen, and Karl Urban (“Star Trek” trilogy, “The Lord of the Rings: Return of the King”) who will add his might to the fray as Skurge.

Cate Blanchett Considers THOR: RAGNAROK Role A “Gift”

It’s confirmed!

In about three months from now, principal photography for Thor: Ragnarok is expected to be in full swing in and around Queensland, Australia. While we’re still waiting for Marvel toofficially announce the director, let alone which actors will make up the principal cast and also what the 2017 threequel will be about, stars Chris Hemsworth and Cate Blanchett have respectively discussed what they’re looking forward to the most, in terms of preparation.

“The role in [Thor Ragnarok] came completely out of the blue,” said Cate Blanchett during a recent SK-II video interview. “And it’s a gift because the thing that I said to myself this year is that I’m gonna get fit.” During a separate interview, the Aussie actress reiterated wanting to get fit, and also expressed excitement to join the Marvel Cinematic Universe. “I’m super, super excited about it,” she said of Ragnarok. “I’ve only done action a couple of times, so it feels like… a departure is too strong a word, but it certainly seems like a change for me. So, I am looking forward to getting really fit, and wearing lycra, and hoping to earn a bit of street cred from my kids. I can’t wait.” What do you think?

Directed by Taika Waititi from a screenplay written by Christopher Yost, Craig Kyle, and Stephany Folsom, Thor: Ragnarok stars Chris Hemsworth, Tom Hiddleston, Mark Ruffalo, Jaimie Alexander, and Cate Blanchett, with others to be announced, and the movie will reportedly start principal photography in June with a release date on November 3, 2017.
