A slew of official photos dropped today for the upcoming film, including first looks at Thor. Grandmaster and Hela.


Thinking we have to be getting close to an official poster and trailer (although I wouldn't be surprised if they released the trailer along with GotG2).

What can I say, I'm even more pumped for this.

Ragnarok is certainly a big gun Thor storyline with cinematic potential (I've enjoyed the several iterations I read from the comics) and Cate Blanchett is always exquisite.  Nothing against the lovely Natalie Portman, but I'm kind of glad it seems Jane Foster isn't in this outing as she sucked some of the energy from the last one.  Still, I dunno; I have fatigue with this franchise and Goldblum is hard to get behind.  Also, as much real estate damage as a Thor v. Hulk confrontation promises, I wonder if this is one of those fan dream matchups best left unexplored.    I hope I'm wrong and it's great!

I LOVE Cate Blanchett - I agree with the use of the word "exquisite" to describe her!  However, I don't love ANY of the official photos released today for the upcoming THOR film, including the photos of Cate as Hela.

I don't recognize any of these actors as THOR characters*... sigh.

Not a fan of the "Unworthy Thor" look they are using, but I think Cate
will be fine as Hela if they get the headdress on her. They've been
using it on the concept art, so I'm hoping to see her with it in the movie.

Yikes... hoping for the best with this one, but much like the first two THOR films, the pics still scream a little too much like "SyFy TV production" for my taste.

Can't ANY of them look like their comic book counterparts??

Grandmaster is a fair approximation.  And Hela, if she puts on the headdress will be pretty close.  Nothing is spot on, but nothing is completely outside the realm of what has appeared in the comics yet, except possibly Valkyrie.  Has it been confirmed that she's supposed to be Brunhilde?  I'll have less problem with it if she's just supposed to be a Valkyrie, as opposed to the Valkyrie we're used to from the comics.  Dani Moonstar gives comic precedent for a non-Nordic Valkyrie.

Thor looks terrible! Or at least, no longer anything like Marvel's Thor.

This is NOT Marvel's Walkyrie.

I see Sam Neill listed as a cast member on www.imdb.com but there's no character name. I didn't even know he was in this. Anyone know who he may be playing?

-----------------------------------------------------
He's said publically that he's not allowed to say who he's playing.  There's a rumor going around the internet though that he's playing the Trader. If true, presumably, with the Collector in GotG, Ego in GotG2, and Grandmaster confirmed in Ragnarok, they're setting up the Elders as future, post-Thanos villains.

Hhhmm. Based on the beard he's been sporting, I would have guessed the Gardener, if he's playing an Elder. 

My money is on Neill playing Mentor, father of Thanos. Probably 1000% wrong on that one, though.

Another thoroughly depressing thread for me to ignore!

THOR is easily becoming the worse of the Marvel Studios franchises.

As JB said, so depressing!

I liked the first THOR, the second less so, although in both cases, I generally thought Hemsworth looked like Thor, even if it wasn't a direct adaptation of any of the comic costumes.

These pictures don't do anything for me at all. Hemsworth doesn't look like he's in full Thor mode at all.

Chris Sims-worth. Looking a bit undersized. That's EW cover looked as bad as X-Men apocalypse.  The set photos looked depressing. But set photos with no lighting, etc. often do. I'm sure once the trailer comes out it will look at least as good as age of ultron.
