Thor part 3 is the sequel to The Dark World and the seventeenth installment in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. This time, the hammer-wielding god is teaming up with Hulk and his treacherous brother Loki and 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 is 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 this popular superheroes franchise.

Thor: Ragnarok was completely filmed in Australia's Gold Coast, apart from a few reshoots in Atlanta. This is a 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).
