‘Thor:Ragnarok’ is out already and soared to a $121 million dollars domestic opening weekend. Even though the film is expected to be the last installment in the “Thor” series, the post-credit scene may have some HUGE repercussions for the whole MCU. Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige has revealed some key information that reveals what it all means.
(SPOILERS FOLLOW FOR ‘THOR: RAGNAROK’)
As Thor, Heimdall, Valkyrie, and Loki look among what’s left of Asgard and think upon what to do next, a HUGE ship looms a top of theirs in what is an ominous scene. Feige has now revealed what the ship is named, and it gives a great amount of insight and context to what the scene means for the film and the greater MCU in general.
“We call it the Sanctuary II”
The Sanctuary is what’s known as the Mad Titan Thanos’ home. The II at the end would imply that he has found a new one in this scene. The Sanctuary was seen in ‘Avengers’ and ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’. This was the place where Thanos was sitting in his floating throne, with all the asteroids floating in the background. This new sanctuary shows a great range of mobility, as Thanos makes his way to complete his collection…
Let’s actually breakdown that scene as a whole shall we? We’re about to go on a speculation journey, so come along and remember to take everything with a spoon of salt (yes, a spoon as a grain will not suffice). We’ll be discussing the mid-credits scene, as the post-credit scene is just a gag (Jeff Goldblum is amazing though).
Let’s start by connecting some dots. When Loki is searching for Surtur’s crown in the vault, he passes by the tesseract and gives it a very intriguing look. Could this mean he actually took it? Yes, he must have. Not only does he owe Thanos the Tesseract, but he knows Asgard is about to be destroyed, so why leave it in the first place? He is shown in the ‘Infinity War’ teaser giving Thanos a “gift,” and he’s also the god of mischief so that should even give you more incentive to believe this.
The question then becomes what happened? Did Loki call Thanos and strike a deal? Did Thanos just find them after hearing about Ragnarok? Has he betrayed yet again his brother and the people of Asgard? As we know by the leaked ‘Infinity War’ trailer, Thor ends up floating in space until he is rescued by the Guardians of the Galaxy. Could this encounter be the exact, precise moment that leads up to the ‘Infinity War’ teaser/trailer? We all know what happens with that. What are your thoughts on Feige’s comments/what could have happened in the post-credits scene? Let us know at @SuperBroMovies. –Kenneth Colon
