Ever since the announcement that Hulk would be joining Thor in space everyone has been asking one question “Will we see Planet Hulk?”
Taika Waititi has now confirmed that we will indeed see Thor (Chris Hemsworth) & Bruce Banner/Hulk (Mark Ruffalo) on that very planet during a new interview with Total Film.
“Sakaar was just an insane, far-off, futuristic place which was the biggest shift for the film and these characters,”
He also confirmed that the visual style of Jack Kirby was a influence
“I was really excited when Kevin and the rest of Marvel jumped on board with the idea to use Kirby as a big influence in the design of the film. What’s really hard is staying authentic.”
Sakaar in the Planet Hulk storyline was used for gladiator games which would obviously indicate as the posters have previously shown us that Thor & Hulk will both fight in the arena.
