Thor: Ragnarok



Imprisoned, the mighty Thor finds himself in a lethal gladiatorial contest against the Hulk, his former ally. Thor must fight for survival and race against time to prevent the all-powerful Hela from destroying his home and the Asgardian civilization.



ILM set the stage for the battle between Thor and his fellow Avenger by creating a 460ft high, 160,000 spectator arena for the action to take place in. The Incredible Hulk was rendered to seamlessly integrate into the environment and alongside either footage of Chris Hemsworth, or a photo-real digital recreation of him. Additional sequences, assets, and effects were handled including Hulk in his warrior suite and Thor's helmet and weaponry.
