Captain America: Civil War was the Marvel Cinematic Universe movie that fans were most looking forward to in 2016. Not to be overlooked though, is the third installment in the god of thunder’s trilogy, Thor: Ragnarok. It’s set to release on November 3, 2017, leaving us plenty of time to speculate on everything we might see. What we do know right now is that the stakes will be higher than ever.
Civil War may deal in the fate of the world’s politics, but Ragnarok will be about a far bigger universe. If there’s one thing the Thor movies have done for the MCU, it’s helping contextualize the story in a wider frame. Marvel’s world includes far more than Earth, and showing us the world of Asgard paints everything in nice, broad strokes.
