CONFIRMED: Doctor Strange will join Hulk and Thor in Thor: Ragnarok!

January 2nd, 2017 by Marc Comments


While it’s not a big surprise given the mid-credit scene in Doctor Strange, it seems we now have confirmation that Jonathan Strange WILL join Hulk and Thor in this year’s Thor: Ragnarok.

And, we have to say, while we were looking forward to the third outing for Thor, this has just made us even more excited for it!

The announcement has come from D23, the official fan club for The Walt Disney Company, which has released a new mini synopsis for the movie in their list of things they are excited for in 2017 and it reads like this:

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

Given that the movie will feature the Ragnarok and Planet Hulk stories from the comics and now looks set to feature three major characters, What We Do In The Shadows director Taika Waititi has his work cut out for him, but we’d be liars if we said we weren’t really, really excited…

Thor: Ragnarok stars Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Tom Hiddleston, Cate Blanchett and Benedict Cumberbatch and brings the war to us on November 3rd, 2017.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
