Thor: Ragnarok will begin filming on the Gold Coast of Queensland, Australia on July 4. The Marvel Studios film will be based out of Village Roadshow Studios and the shoot will run through late-October.

Chris Hemsworth will reprise the titular lead role for the third of Marvel’s Thor films. Also returning are Tom Hiddleston as Loki, Anthony Hopkins as Odin, Idris Elba as Heimdall, and Jaimie Alexander as Sif. They’ll be joined by newcomers Jeff Goldblum as The Grandmaster, Tom Hiddleston as Loki, Cate Blanchett as Hela, Karl Urban as Skurge and Tessa Thompson as Valkyrie, along with Avengers star Mark Ruffalo as The Hulk.

Speaking from Wizard World Philadelphia, Hemsworth said fans should expect something different from Thor and Loki in Ragnarok. Man, it is a lot of fun,” he said. “I think tonally it’s a big shift in a great way, more than anything we’ve seen before. Taika Waititi, the director, if you know any of his work, yeah, he’s just an incredible sort of comedic talent, a lot of heart in everything he does. But you know it’s a very different Thor, it’s a different Loki. I think there’s a — we go off on another world that we haven’t experienced before. It’s fun you know, but that’s me skirting around the issue because I can’t say too much.”

Hiddleston is looking forward to a rematch between Loki and Hulk. “Let’s not forget that it’s no secret that the Hulk shows up in Ragnarok, and the last time Loki and Hulk were in the same room didn’t go very well for Loki,” he said. “So, he’s got a few chips on his shoulder, but it’s fun. You’ll see.”
