In Norse mythology, Ragnarök is “the final destruction of the world in the conflict between the Aesir and the powers of Hel led by Loki.” Also known as the “Twilight of the Gods,” it sees the destruction of Asgard and the death of Thor, Odin, Sif and the rest of the Asgardians. While we already know that Marvel’s Thor (Chris Hemsworth) and and his erstwhile brother Loki (Tom Hiddleston) won’t be offed in director Taika Waititi‘s Thor: Ragnarok — iMDb lists them as part of the cast of Avengers: Infinity War — there are at least two other characters that will definitely survive the hell that Hela (Cate Blanchett) brings to the Nine Realms. According to Marvel guru Kevin Feige, two supporting characters will return in some capacity down the road.
We have plans for Korg and Miek. When and where we’ll have to wait and see, but we, like the audience now that they’ve seen them, can’t get enough.
Thor: Ragnarok was written by Eric Pearson, Craig Kyle and Christopher Yost. Mark Ruffalo, Cate Blanchett, Jeff Goldblum, Tessa Thomspon, Idris Elba, Karl Urban, Tadanobu Asano, Benedict Cumberbatch, Sam Neill and Anthony Hopkins also star.
The movie opens November 3rd.
