With Doctor Strange floating our collective boats at FTN right now, we’re already looking to the future and it really put Thor: Ragnarok in our minds… go see it and you’ll know why – and as luck would have it, we have some cool news from the third Thor movie right now.

Marvel uploaded footage from the movie’s behind-the-scenes in Brisbane, Australia last night on Facebook and while it’s not terribly noteworthy at first glance, there is some cool little things that are well worth pointing out.

In the video Director Taika Waititi, about 14 minutes in, calls our attention to an actor by the name of Steve and points out that Steve will be playing Miek in the movie

Miek, for those who don’t know, is from the Planet Hulk storyline in the comics and looks like this:

Meik fights alongside Hulk in the story to overthrow the regime on the planet Sakaar that makes aliens fight each other in brutal gladiatorial bouts. we already know that Hulk and Thor will fight in the movie.

If you look below, you’ll also see actress Tessa Thompson in her Valkyrie outfit from the movie.

Thor: Ragnarok arrives on November 3, 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….
