At long last there are some images showing off Thor: Ragnarok and it doesn’t look quite like what I would have expected.
While the third Thor film comes out this year, not a lot has been shown off from the production as of yet. Now thanks to Entertainment Weekly we have our first official images and it looks amazing.
Lets just get this out of the way: Cate Blanchett as Hela looks amazing. Yes, maybe a bit too much like a goth, but I don’t care, she looks pitch perfect. Jeff Goldblum as the Grandmaster looks fantastic… and sets up some potentially interesting stories.
First, the pics.
Why is the inclusion of the Grandmaster intriguing? He is considered one of the Elders of the Universe as is the Collector (Benicio del Toro) and Ego (Kurt Russell). Could the Marvel Cinematic Universe be establishing these characters now for potential inclusion in the upcoming Infinity War storyline? My guess would be yes.
It looks to me as though the MCU is really going to start embracing the space portion of its history and that could get very intriguing.
Thor: Ragnarok hits theaters on Nov. 3, 2017.
