Thor 3: Ragnarok News: Loki's death unlikely as Tom Hiddleston gets multi-movie contract with Marvel; Kenneth Branagh to helm final installment?
Thor 3: Ragnarok is still approximately 2 years away from its release, but as early as now, various speculations surfaced as to the possible plot of the final instalment of the Thor franchise. Also, Marvel is rumored to be eyeing on director Kenneth Branagh to helm the film.
The end of days is near for Asgard as Thor: Ragnarok is slowly approaching and despite that no official synopsis has been released for the film as of yet, many theories have emerged as to the possible direction the film might go.
The fire giant "Surtur" who causes destruction is said to likely appear in Thor 3: Ragnarok. Surtur will burn the Birfrost which will lead to the destruction of Asgard. In the mythology, the god Odin fights a giant wolf and dies. Thor also faces a giant snake and ends up dead. Loki comes face to face with Heimdall and later dies, however in the comics, Thor rips Loki's head off due to his treachery.
Although Loki's death may be possible, many speculate that it is also somewhat unlikely as Tom Hiddleston, who plays Loki, still has a multi-movie contract with Marvel.
Meanwhile, there are also reports that Thanos might make an appearance in Thor 3: Ragnarok, and that the god of thunder, Thor, might come into a battle against Thanos and Surtur.
There is no official list as to film's cast and crew yet, though, reports suggest that Marvel is eyeing director, Kenneth Branagh to helm the third instalment of the franchise. But aside from Marvel, Branagh also reportedly got an offer to direct Fox's "Murder on the Orient Express". If he ever accepts Marvel's offer, Branagh will not be considered new to the Thor franchise as he also directed the first film, "Thor" in 2011.
More details about the film are expected to be released soon. Chris Hemsworth and Tom Hiddleston are set to star in Thor 3: Ragnarok slated to hit theaters on November 03, 2017.
