The latest updates and spoilers for "Thor: Ragnarok" will reveal the reason why Thor skipped "Civil War" and director Taika Waititi teased a new film series for the God of Thunder.

The hunt for Thanos

Executive producer Brad Winderbaum revealed what Thor has been doing after the events of "Avengers: Age of Ultron" and how he ends up in Sakaar and in a conflict with Hela and Surtur. Winderbaum told Screenrant that the God of Thunder has been hunting down Thanos and he knows that the Mad Titan has been searching for the Infinity Stones throughout the galaxy.

"The journey he's been on at the beginning of the movie, it's not like five minutes after Ultron ends we start this movie: it's a couple of years later," Winderbaum said. "And as we know, at the end of Ultron he's started this quests to find the puppet master, and the Infinity Stones, and all that."

With that being said, Thor has been focused on searching for clues about Thanos and the Infinity Stones for years. He was not able to notice the rising tension between Captain America and Iron Man during the events of "Captain America: Civil War."

Winderbaum's explanation also revealed that Thor's journey has him traveling to different realms and wind up in a conflict with Surtur, ruler of Muspelheim.

Hela in "Ragnarok" destroys Mjolnir and took over Asgard, as Thor ends up in a gladiator arena on Sakaar and fights the Hulk.

Hela is speculated to be Thanos' lover and the MCU's version of Mistress Death in "Avengers: Infinity Stones."

A new film series

Film director Taika Waititi teased that "Thor: Ragnarok" will be the start of a new series of films for the God of Thunder.

He told Screenrant that third film will outshine the past two movies and feels that if the Marvel is making another movie about Thor, then the latter should be the best character in the cast.

Marvel Studios is hoping that Waititi's take on "Ragnarok" will enable them to make more films about the Mighty Avenger after Phase 3, comparing it to a "rebirth" for the character.

The sequel will feature Thor trying to stop Hela from destroying Asgard and remaking it in her own image. He forms his own team consisting of Valkyrie, his adopted brother Loki, and his fellow Avengers teammate Hulk. The team will also have to deal with the Fenris Wolf and Surtur.

Doctor Strange will also make an appearance in the movie as Thor needs his help to find his father, Odin in New York after he was banished by Loki and Hela. The sequel will premiere on Nov. 23.
