The studio’s fansite, D23, made the announcement in a preview for upcoming movies in 2017, noting that “Thor: Ragnarok in November brings together Thor, the Hulk, and Doctor Strange to face off against intergalactic baddies both familiar and new.”
This confirms the rumors that began swirling back in August when Thor actor Chris Hemsworth was seen on set holding Stephen Strange’s business card.
Of course, it shouldn’t come as much of a surprise, given the successful launch of Doctor Strange into the MCU in 2016.
The Thor: Ragnarok cast continues to grow, as we now know it not only contains Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Cate Blanchett, Karl Urban, Jeff Goldblum, and Tom Hiddleston, but also Cumberbatch (whose star power is undeniable at this point). We also know that the upcoming Thor sequel will mostly take place on planet Sakaar, a “far-off, futuristic place”.
Thor: Ragnarok is set to release in theaters on November 3, 2017, and it’s just one of the many superhero films coming in 2017.
