With the hype increasing on MCU’s newest film, Thor: Ragnarok, Marvel have released a selection of eight new posters. Each poster is character centric. The posters all have a colour-bomb effect which adds to the film’s new colourful vibe. Chris Hemsworth’s titular character, Thor has his traditional red colour on his poster whilst Loki has a golden-yellow colour to go with his green and gold attire. Naturally, Mark Ruffalo’s Hulk has a green colour whilst Hela has a vibrant, royal purple colour. Purple as a colour is traditionally seen on queens. So this fits her quite well.
Thor: Ragnarok deviates from its predecessors by taking a more funky, retro look at the superhero. Many have compared this new tone to Guardians of the Galaxy. But it’s assured Thor will add his own twist to this genre. The film will see the return of Chris Hemsworth as Thor and Tom Hiddleston as Loki, who appeared to have died in Thor: The Dark World until it was revealed that this was an illusion. Newcomers include Cate Blanchett as villainess, Hela who will bring about Ragnarok; the end of the world as we know it.
Thor: Ragnarok Synopsis:
In Marvel Studios’ “Thor: Ragnarok,” Thor is imprisoned on the other side of the universe without his mighty hammer and finds himself in a race against time to get back to Asgard to stop Ragnarok—the destruction of his homeworld and the end of Asgardian civilization—at the hands of an all-powerful threat, the ruthless Hela. But first he must survive a deadly gladiatorial contest that pits him against his former ally and fellow Avenger—the Incredible Hulk.
Taika Waititi will direct Thor: Ragnarok which stars Chris Hemsworth, Tom Hiddleston, Anthony Hopkins, Idris Elba and Mark Ruffalo. Alongside newcomers Cate Blanchett, Tessa Thompson and Jeff Goldblum. Thor: Ragnarok will see its release on October 24th.
