“Thor: Ragnarok” will see a battle between Thor (Chris Hemsworth) and Hulk (Mark Ruffalo). The heroes will come face-to-face in the gladiator ring.

Marvel has released a new plot for the upcoming film, and it revealed that the heroes will indeed match. The summary gives us a pretty good idea of how the first and second Thor films affect the plot for “Thor: Ragnarok.”

The new plot stated that Thor is imprisoned on the other side of the universe without his trusty, mighty hammer. The synopsis revealed, “He finds himself in a race against time to get back to Asgard to stop Ragnarok, the destruction of his homeworld and the end of Asgardian civilization at the hands of an all-powerful new threat, the ruthless Hela.”

The first thing he needs to do is to survive a deadly gladiatorial contest. This will force him to fight his former ally and fellow Avenger, the Incredible Hulk!

The Hollywood Reporter said that Thor and Hulk weren't skipping last year's trend of hero fighting hero. Both, however, will be having a rematch in the upcoming movies. The outlet said that this time, Thor might not have the benefit of Mjolnir.

The first time that Thor and Hulk were involved in a battle against each other was in 2012's “Avengers.” The rematch between the two is expected to be one of highlights in “Thor: Ragnarok.”

Screen Rant has previously reported that “Thor: Ragnarok” started filming in Queensland, Australia on July 4, 2016. The outlet reported that production for the third “Thor” movie is indeed moving forward as planned.

Australia in general is progressively becoming a popular spot for big-budgeted Hollwood films. Disney’s “Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales” was filmed in the land down under in 2015. "The Matrix," "Mission Impossible 2," "Star Wars," "The Great Gatsby,"  "Happy Feet," "Finding Nemo," along others were also shot in the country.
 

“Thor: Ragnarok” is slated to hit US theatres on Nov. 3. It is yet to be officially confirmed if it will be released in Australia on the same day.
