2017’s ‘Thor: Ragnarok’ has gotten a new writer. Craig Kyle and Christopher Yost had previously turned in a script but now Stephany Folsom has been brought onboard. Not much is known about the existing script other than it included Mark Ruffalo‘s Hulk played a role, in what was described as a super hero buddy road trip. The film also explains where the two strongest Avengers are during the conflict in 2016’s ‘Captain America: Civil War’.
Folsom doesn’t have many credits to her name. Her only produced work was an episode of the YouTube series ‘Ds2dio 360’, but she has a 2013 black list (unproduced) script for ‘1969: A Space Odyssey or How Kubrick Learned to Stop Worrying and Land on the Moon’ and another called ‘Missing You’. She currently has a script in development at Disney (Marvel’s parent company) called ‘The Princess of North Sudan’.
At this point in time, it’s unlikely that Folsom will be starting from scratch. Most likely, she will simply be punching up the existing script by Yost and Kyle.
Folsom is the latest female script writer to work on a Marvel film, following Nicole Perlman who worked on ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ and the upcoming ‘Captain Marvel’ on which she is working with Meg LeFauve.
New Zealander director Taika Waititi is helming ‘Thor: Ragnarok’. His previous directing credit was the low budget vampire spoof ‘What We Do In The Shadows’.
Chris Hemsworth will be returning as Thor and it is expected that Jaimie Alexander (Lady Sif) and Tom Hiddleston (Loki) will also return.
