When Marvel announced the title, I figured the chances of Ragnarok being done properly as a tragedy, especially at this point in their overall film series, were somewhere south of zero in six. Then they hired Taika Waititi, an interesting choice but not exactly a guy with a list of dramas on his resume.

The title comes from the fact that its adapting Walt Simonson's 'Ragnarok and Roll' story, with a heaping helping of Planet Hulk thrown in, since they wanted to do the latter as its own movie, but didn't want to share the money with Universal.

They still have to share the money with Universal.  Any time Marvel uses the Hulk, Universal gets a share.

I had heard that some detail of that deal was what was stopping them from making a standalone Hulk movie.  Maybe I heard wrong.
