On this occasion, the hammer-wielding god is teaming up with Hulk and his treacherous brother Loki to save planet Asgard from Hela, goddess of death.

Chris Hemsworth leads the returning cast as Thor, The Night Manager Tom Hiddleston plays Loki, Mark Ruffalo as The Hulk and Cate Blanchett stars as Hela.

New Zealand director Taika Waititi, known for his acclaimed comedies What We Do in the Shadows and Hunt for the Wilderpeople, is expected to bring some humor to the popular superheroes franchise.

This is our spoiler-free compilation of the most interesting filming locations for this epic production.

Thor Ragnarok set Location
A fantasy film of this size and scale includes lots of CGI landscapes. However, the production opted for building many practical sets, giving a more realistic feel to the ensemble.

36 sets, some of them massive, were constructed at Village Roadshow Studios in Oxenford (Queensland), the same location where Godzilla was filmed.

The scene where Thor and Loki arrive in New York and Loki falls through the magical hole was filmed at an intersection between Margaret Street and Albert Street in Brisbane.
