When last we left Asgard in Thor: The Dark World, Loki (Tom Hiddleston) had secretly usurped the throne from Odin (Anthony Hopkins). Now Thor (Chris Hemsworth) must deal with the ramifications of his trickster bro’s
actions, which will involve an intergalactic road trip of sorts with The Hulk (Mark Ruffalo) that takes some of its cues from the popular “Planet Hulk” comic book run. The brilliantly hilarious director Taika Waititi (What We Do in the Shadows) will bring a lot of levity to the proceedings.
