Main spoilers for Thor: Ragnarok are on this story. Cease studying now if you have not seen the film.
Taika Waititi’s Thor: Ragnarok is a reasonably contained story when it comes to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Thor (Chris Hemsworth) is on a mission to take away his step-brother, Loki (Tom Hiddleston), from the throne. Within the course of, he is additionally attempting to forestall Hela (Cate Blanchett), the Goddess of Demise, from taking up Asgard. The film solutions a few larger MCU questions, however leaves on main query lingering, till now. Who’s ship is that that seems within the mid-credits scene? Marvel President Kevin Feige lastly reveals:
We name it the Sanctuary II.
And there you’ve got it. The identify “Sanctuary” ties on to Thanos, the Mad Titan. It was the area of Thanos that we noticed within the Guardians of the Galaxy scene the place Ronan confronted the celestial beast.
Within the comics, Sanctuary II was a large ship that served as an Ark, so it is sensible that Marvel Studios would begin to introduce Thanos (Josh Brolin) to the storyline, as we solely have one different film — Black Panther — earlier than we land on Avengers: Infinity Battle, when all hell is meant to interrupt unfastened.
We broke down a few of that info in our end-credits scene analysis, however Marvel President Kevin Feige confirms to The Wrap that it is The Sanctuary II, and now we all know that Thanos might be on board. What I discover fascinating is that an “Ark” kind ship arrives on the scene proper when Thor has the complete physique of surviving Asgardians in his possession. Will Thanos kidnap “Asgard,” and can that be Thor’s major motivation to battle?
Piecing collectively what we all know from the Avengers: Infinity Battle trailer that was proven at D23 and San Diego Comedian-Con, we are able to assume that Thaons makes fast work of Thor and Hulk, as a result of when the Guardians of the Galaxy arrive on the scene, a overwhelmed and bloodied Thor lands on their windshield. It is doable that the Infinity Battle film opens with Thor and Hulk versus Thanos, however till we see that official trailer, we can’t know for sure.
If I needed to challenge out, I might assume that Ryan Coogler’s Black Panther will act similarly. It should 99% be a self-contained Black Panther story, with a small tease on the very finish for the large Marvel group up that can arrive in its wake. So, till then, go to our Black Panther preview page for info, our Avengers: Infinity War page for info, and brush up on all Upcoming Marvel Movies right here.
