Thor has finally found the hairdresser. The Nordic God has needed a few comings to Earth to discover how comfortable it is not to have to comb his long blond hair. Finally, we have the first official images of Thor: Ragnarok, and before focusing on the look of Cate Blanchett, it is clear that the first thing we have to mention is that Chris Hemsworth has cut his hair. That yes, for Thor is an important novelty.
“It was nice not to sit in the makeup chair for that hour each morning,” explains the actor to Entertainment Weekly, who dedicates his new cover to the third installment of Thor’s adventures. His situation: “It felt like a rebirth for me as the actor but also as the character.” In the images we see Hemsworth with short hair and beard populated, wearing his gladiator costume, with shield and everything. We have Thor accompanied by Bruce Banner (Mark Ruffalo). But let’s focus on the second most shocking novelty: Hela.
Finally, we have a first look at the character of Cate Blanchett that is not a concept art. The actress has also gone through the hairdressing salon, and now she has a black mane. Her character is the goddess of war, which is free after a long, long time locked in, and is ready to make up for lost time. The cover is completed with Tessa Thompson, who embodies Valkyrie. In the rest of the published images, we also have a first look at Loki (Tom Hiddleston), for the joy of his fans, and a first photo of Jeff Goldblum as the Master. What an oriental touch.
The film will take us to a new stage in the Marvel Universe: Sakaar, described by Hemsworth as “basically the place where every wormhole throws its crap, so you have people from all walks of life with all sorts of skills and Incredible powers .” There Thor is one more, and in fact will be forced to become a gladiator to be respected: “No one cares that Thor has been a prince or king in another world. Also, his strength is easily equaled by those who face “. The problem will come when he discovers that the star wrestler of the place is an old acquaintance of hers. Someone you’ve fought side by side. A very big green man with bad milk. Things get interesting.
