Rumours around Marvel’s Cinematic Universe are almost constantly doing the rounds online, the most recent detailing the goings on in Thor: Ragnarok.

According to a report by JoBlo - the same source who broke the news The Hulk would appear in the third Thor film - the storyline will use aspects from the much-hyped Planet Hulk storyline.

The original comic-book story saw the Hulk sent into space by a group called the Illuminati, a group that has previously consisted of Iron Man, Doctor Strange, and Namor.

Eventually, he crashes onto the planet Sakaar and is made to fight (due to an ‘obedience disk’) various enemies in a colosseum. Soon, he breaks free from the disk - thanks to the Silver Surfer - and goes on the run.

According to the report, the colosseum aspect will feature significantly in the film, with Jeff Goldblum’s Grandmaster seeing over the games.

Meanwhile, the report also details how Elizabeth Debicki will reportedly be playing the villain in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, adding further details about the antagonist.
