The third Thor movie will definitely skew more towards the comics, as we won’t see Earth much in the movie. After spending two movies on Earth, the Odinson and Hulk will go on a cosmic road trip and leave our planet behind for most of the movie.
Screen Rant has a quote from Kevin Feige where he discusses just how “cosmic” the third Thor film will be:
â€œI donâ€™t know about branching off from this, but certainly inhabiting similar areas from this. A lot of our upcoming movies will. I mean the upcoming movies will be as much up here, as they are on Earth, starting with not Spider-Man, starting with Thor: Ragnarok. There are three scenes on Earth in Thor: Ragnarok. Everything else is Asgard, and not all of these worlds, but world that certainly, letâ€™s put it this way, in Thor lingo, itâ€™s beyond the nine realms. There are other planets that we spend a lot of time on in Thor: Ragnarok, that certainly people would say, â€˜oh, thatâ€™s sort of like the Guardians worldâ€™, but theyâ€™re just other areas of the Marvel cosmos universe.â€
Obviously one of these scenes will involve Thor meeting up with Doctor Strange to track down Odin where ever Loki hid him. Current comic readers will probably smirk at these characters meeting up, seeing as how the great Jason Aaron is currently writing the Thor books as well as Doctor Strange for Marvel.
This will also solve some of the complaints of the first Thor movies as, much like Green Lantern in DC, Thor is meant to be very cosmic and not so Earth-focused. So it’s starting to sound like Ragnarok could end up being the best of the Thor movies.
