This is the first I'm hearing that Ragnarok isn't 100% off-Earth, do we know how much will be set on Earth?
Pretty sure Feige said 90-95% off earth. If I had to guess: maybe spoilers:
It sounds like the rumors of Loki mind fucking Odin and sending him to earth are true. Loki could be showing Thor what he did with Odin here.

No clue if this has been mentioned yet, but Mark Mothersbaugh is doing the soundtrack for this. He had a lot of nice things to say about working with Taika Waititi, he (Mark) isn't really a blockbuster movie guy, but Taika specifically reached out and sent him a bunch interesting demos and got him on board.

The gist I got was it would be a mix of traditional orchestra and then synths. Mark seemed legitimately excited about what they were coming up with, so I'm optimistic this will have a better than normal soundtrack.

I'm wondering if there will be a
Doctor Strange
cameo:

Strange comes upon hobo Odin in NYC, senses a strange aura about him discovers who he really is, and brings him to the Sanctum Sanctorum to contact Thor.

They are filming in Brisbane City! Just two blocks away from where I live. I'll try to take some photos, but they have closed the roads.

Wow this might be the first time I'm on board for a Marvel score.

I love synth soundtracks.

Here's my crappy phone pic. They're filming just down the street from me in Brisbane right now. Converted the city into New York by importing a bunch of New York taxis etc to drive down the street in the background. Kinda weird that they're trying to pretend Australia is New York.

Wow, everything about this movie is off-kilter and I can't wait to see how it comes together.

Pretty exciting seeing them film. Tom and Chris were amazingly friendly!

They were filming a comedic scene where the two brothers are talking and some girls recognise Thor and do a selfie with him (loki was photobombing them in one take). Seemed like loki opened a Portal or something at the end and He leaves a note Thor picks up.

Nothing too exciting, really.

I went to a wine tasting and Q&A last week, it was a retrospective of Devo and their music videos, Mark randomly brought it up halfway through.

He talked about Taika playing a mean theremin solo on a phone app. He said he was going back though tons of his old demos from the 80's to see if he could find anything to use for the movie. He also mentioned the original demos that Taika sent reminded him of Devo.

Hopefully Mark was allowed to talk about it, I've seen him speak twice now, he's very friendly and really cool to his fans.

Thor 3 is quickly becoming my most anticipated blockbuster movie yet.
I'm more excited by this than Avengers: Infinity War. I just hope they aim for something on an epic scale; they've got freaking "Ragnarok" in the subtitle and the Hulk's in it. If it's another Thor 2 then I'm gonna be disappointed.

I have some damn high epic hopes for this movie. Taika steering the hammer, Cate Blanchett and the whole cast rumbling the floor, the Ragnarok event unfolding, Hulk smashing the Grandmaster's games and a wink and nod to Doctor Strange himself.

EPIC!
