“Thor: Ragnarok” To Change Up The MCU

Beyond the teaser trailer and some set pics, much about Taika Waititi’s “Thor: Ragnarok” remains unknown. We do know the setup for the film which sees Hela (Cate Blanchett) smashing Mjolnir, scorching Asgard and flinging Thor (Chris Hemsworth) to a gladiatorial planet.

In a new interview with The Toronto Sun, Marvel Studios chief Kevin Feige reveals that the film will “drastically” change things for the Marvel Cinematic Universe with the movie directly laying the path for “Avengers: Infinity War”:

“I think that we are finding ourselves as we complete Phase 3 and finish this 22-movie narrative that it’s working out that way. We did three Iron Man films, three Captain America films, three Thor films. Things change drastically in Ragnarok and then build directly into Infinity War.”

The quote comes as photos of a new line of film tie-in figures from the Funkos Pop range have been released on the Funko.com website finally confirming the long running rumored inclusion of Surtur in the film along with various aliens. Click the link to check out the photos.

In the comics, Surtur is a horned demon who rules over the fiery realm off Muspelheim (likely the place seen with Thor in chains at the start of the teaser trailer). “Thor: Ragnarok” hits theaters on November 3rd.
