It’s been a while since we’ve had a snippet of marketing from the camps of Marvel on Thor Ragnarok, until today that is with the release of a set of vibrant character posters.
The eight character posters depict each of the main characters of Jeff Goldblum as The Grandmaster, Mark Ruffalo as the Hulk, Tom Hiddleston as Loki, Chris Hemsworth as Thor, Cate Blanchett as Hela, Tessa Thompson as Valkyrie, Anthony Hopkins as Odin and Idris Elba as Heimdall and are clocked in different colours, almost like their aura becoming visible, to represent them, either in battle or a serene pose of superiority.
Also joining the cast but who haven’t been given the privilege of a poster of their own are Karl Urban as Skurge and Sam Neill who reunites with Taika Waititi, who directed him in his previous film Hunt for the Wilderpeople, Benedict Cumberbatch’s Doctor Strange will also feature when he teams with the God of Thunder to deal with Loki.
Check out the gallery of posters below.
Thor Ragnarok is released in UK cinemas on the 27th of October and in the US on the 3rd of November.
Thor: Ragnarok Synopsis
When we last saw Thor, he was flying off to figure out who was manipulating the Avengers at the end of Age of Ultron. Eventually, he hears rumblings of trouble in Asgard: His evil brother, Loki (Tom Hiddleston), has been impersonating their missing father, Odin (Anthony Hopkins).
Loki’s rather lax governing leads to the reemergence of an imprisoned Hela (Cate Blanchett). Thor’s initial encounter with Hela gets him blasted to Sakaar, a barbaric planet ruled by the charming but nefarious Grandmaster (Jeff Goldblum). Valkyrie (Tessa Thompson), a tough, hard-drinking warrior hiding out on Sakaar brings the god to the Grandmaster. Sakaar’s most popular and successful gladiator? Bruce Banner, a.k.a. the Hulk. Once Thor and Hulk unite, Ragnarok becomes a sort of road-trip film.
