Were you some of the lucky people that got into Hall D23 or Hall H and got to see the footage for Avengers: Infinity War? We were and we saw one of the great meet-cute’s of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Thor (Chris Hemsworth) smashes into the screen of the Milano and the Guardians like an intergalactic fly. He looks pretty beat up and he’s floating through space. Those that have seen the footage were left wondering if this was some sort of major spoiler for the upcoming Thor: Ragnarok. If Thor was in such a bad place that he was floating through space seemingly injured, does that mean things are going to end very badly against Hela (Cate Blanchett)?
Fans have been wondering that since the footage first screened at D23 but Cinema Blend decided to go straight to the source. They asked Thor director Taika Waitit if the footage spoils Thor and he says that it doesn’t.
Oh, in the other thing? It is not a spoiler.
Not a spoiler then. While we know that the events of Ragnarok will lead into Infinity War but it’s nice to know that Marvel didn’t spoil huge parts of the movie for us while hyping us for another one. The second trailer for Thor: Ragnarok gave us a clearer image of what the plot will be and we can expect to learn more about that and Infinity War in the coming months.
Summary: Imprisoned, the mighty Thor finds himself in a lethal gladiatorial contest against the Hulk, his former ally. Thor must fight for survival and race against time to prevent the all-powerful Hela from destroying his home and the Asgardian civilization.
