Marvel has given us our first glimpse of Thor: Ragnarok, and it looks awesome.
The first teaser for the new film was released yesterday. We had a look at some new characters – some villains, some heroes. All of them look pretty badass.
Loki is still probably a jerk.
The Hulk looks like he’s kitted out with a new set of armor. So is Thor! He’s sporting something that looks much more like the type of outfit he wears in the original comics.
And if the after-credits scene in Dr. Strange is any indication, Stephen Strange may be joining our original Thor cast to track Loki down.
Here’s what we know about Ragnarok for sure so far:
- The Hulk is playing a major role in the new Thor movie, battling other cosmic beings in extraterrestrial contests that look a lot like gladiatorial games (And Bruce might not be too happy about it).
- Ragnarok likely means that Earth, and possibly the entire Universe, is near extinction…again. In Norse Mythology, “Ragnarok” refers to the end of all things, when the earth will be destroyed in one final war.
- We may get a glimpse into what Thanos wants with those infinity stones. Ragnarok will start to tie together all those little plot points we’ve been seeing over the course of several different Marvel movies, like Guardians of the Galaxy and Dr. Strange.
- Cate Blanchett has joined the cast as Hela, Tessa Thompson is playing Valkyrie, Jeff Goldblum is playing the Grandmaster, and Karl Urban will be playing Skurge. What a cast!
The movie’s due to be released in theaters later this year, on November 3, 2017.
Are you ready for the end times? No? Then hurry up and have a look at the rest of our Thor tees, because Ragnarok is coming. You’d better be prepared. You wouldn’t want to be caught in something boring when the apocalypse hits!
