While Empire Magazine kicked off the week with a big Star Wars: The Last Jedi spread, another major upcoming Disney property has stepped in its place at the back end of the week, Thor: Ragnarok. T0day has brought a flurry of news for the upcoming third film in the franchise, with this post focusing on the brand new batch of character posters that have been revealed, as well as some of the latest footage released.
The posters feature a very strong taste, and they very much go in line with what we’ve seen from the film thus far. If anything, we’ve learned that director Taika Waititi has brought an extremely vibrant approach to the film, something the solo Marvel franchise has needed. While not terrible, the Thor movies are the lesser of the bunch, but that looks like it’s all about to change.
The one-sheets give us solid good looks at all the main players for Ragnarok, including a different kind of Heimdall (Idris Elba) and our first real look at the return of Anthony Hopkins’ Odin. It’s clear that Marvel is allowing its creators to venture out a bit more outside the circle than it has in recent memory. Over the last so many years, we’ve seen many Marvel movie posters resemble each other. While I don’t mind the similarities as much as others, these new posters should be a breathe of fresh air for those who have disagreed with Marvel posters in the past. Although, where’s Skurge?
What do you think of the posters? Are they as good as I think they are? How about the news looks at the characters? Which character are you looking forward to seeing the most? Waititi’s Thor: Ragnarok hits theaters on November 3rd and stars Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Tom Hiddleston, Cate Blanchett, Jeff Goldblum, Karl Urban, Tessa Thompson, Idris Elba, and Anthony Hopkins.
