Thor: Ragnarok was brilliant and the movie comes with many great things, I for one loved the humor in the movie but that is not it, one of the weirdest and most entertaining was seeing Jeff Goldblum play The Grandmaster. He was such a wild character and the fact that his brother is The Collector, who is played by Benicio del Toro, makes the whole thing blow out of proportion! Both actors and their characters are brilliant and I would love to see them both in some future Marvel movie and I am sure this will happen in near future.
When previously talking about their relationship, Goldblum said:
“We’re elders of the universe. We came about shortly after the Big Bang. We’re the oldest living creatures in the universe. Grandmaster and my brother, Collector. I rule on this planet Sakaar and I put together games. I put together the great, great match between Hulk and the new Thor. “
During a recent interview with The Toronto Sun, the actor was asked what Marvel hero he would like to see the Grandmaster meet up with in the future, and he said:
“Oh, that’s an interesting idea. Well, I overlapped with one day of Cate Blanchett’s shooting and she’s so spectacular as Hela. I keep wanting to have scenes with her. We worked together on a Wes Anderson movie awhile ago — The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou — and I sure would love to do anything with her. But, in the comic books, the character of the Grandmaster is the brother of The Collector, played by Benicio del Toro, who I adore. So I would enjoy doing something with him. That would be fun.”
Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige has said that he expects to bring them both together one day! When asked about the likelihood of this happening, he said:
“It would be awesome man. It would be great. We love the idea that they’re brothers. If you go on the Guardians of the Galaxy: Mission Breakout attraction at California Adventure in Anaheim, you will see a picture on Collector’s wall of he and the Grandmaster playing some sort of a space chess game, which right now is the only place you can see the two of them in a frame together, but let’s hope that changes someday.”
