During Marvel’s impressive Hall H panel last night at SDCC, there were plenty of fun tidbits of news released, including confirmation that Surtur would be appearing in Thor: Ragnarok. This news alone made plenty of Thor fans excited, however, there was one announcement that most of us seemed to miss. Apparently, the footage shown at the Hall H panel confirmed the appearance of Fenris Wolf. IGN revealed this bit of news while recapping the footage displayed for Ragnarok on the panel.
Marvel Studios screened some concept art and proof of concept footage as well as a behind-the-scenes look at Thor: Ragnarok, which just recently began filming in Australia. In addition to quick glimpses of Hulk in his battle armor and the god of thunder with close-cropped hair and war paint, the conceptual footage also revealed two more adversaries that Thor and Hulk will face-off against in the third entry.
We got a look at the Fenris Wolf, a being inspired by Fenrisulfr of Norse mythology.
For those unfamiliar with Fenris Wolf, the character is said to be an offspring of Loki’s. (Yes, you read that correctly!) Interestingly enough, it’s foretold that during Ragnarok, Fenris will devour Odin.
