The last two Thor films didn’t make a huge impact critically or financially, but were seen as “ok” to “pretty good”. Now Marvel wants to change that with ‘Thor: Ragnarok’, and from teaser footage and details that have been released so far, it looks like they are on their way to doing so. Not only that, but it’s now revealed that the third film in the franchise will be it’s final one…When talking to the Toronto Sun, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige broke the news that Ragnarok will conclude Thor’s trilogy of movies. He also teases how it will change everything drastically and lead right into ‘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.”
This isn’t too surprising, especially since Feige has been pretty open on how the next Avengers films will really change the MCU has we now know it. Thor being the final film makes sense because the rest of the MCU characters are based off of a three solo film arc. The thing that stands out though is the fact that the movie will lead directly into the next Avengers film.
My guess is that the final Infinity Stone that Thanos is looking for will be revealed in Ragnarok. Now, how exactly it will change the MCU immensely remains to be seen but I think we can assume Thor and Asgard will be affected quite a bit. All eyes are on ‘Thor: Ragnarok’ now and the reaction from fans/critics will surely reveal whether or not Marvel and Co. have finally delivered a truly great Thor film.
