I think it’s fair to say that no one saw this coming. The first promo poster for Thor: Ragnarok has been revealed.
The poster gives fans a look at Hulk in his gladiator armour, with Thor wielding a weapon that definitely isn’t Mjolnir. The overall look of the poster is colourful and vibrant, and has the comic inspired look that more recent Marvel posters have had.
It looks like both Thor and Hulk will be forced to fight in the arena, explaining why the God of Thunder is fighting with swords rather than his iconic hammer. Unfortunately the poster has leaked, meaning it isn’t very high quality. Hopefully Marvel will jump on the bandwagon and release the official image.
The third film in the Thor franchise will take place largely “off-Earth” and will explore the larger Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Thor: Ragnarok will land in theatres on October 27, 2017 and stars Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Tom Hiddleston, Idris Elba, Cate Blanchett, and Tessa Thompson.
