Yet again I’m catching up with things that have been around for a while, but I couldn’t call myself a comic/film fan if I didn’t talk about them at some point.
So let’s talk about Thor: Ragnarok. For some time now we have been getting set photos released, some leaked, some official. They range from behind the scenes Motion-capture shots of Mark Ruffalo and a sneak peek at some rather intriguing large battle armour reminiscent of Planet Hulk all the way to the physical sets of new Asgardian locations.
Just in case you hadn’t realised there will be potential SPOILERS below! These photos have not been officially released by Marvel but a quick internet search will present you with many similar images.
If you don’t want to see anything from the film until you are sat in the cinema then what the hell are you doing here!!! Look away now!
Last chance! You have been warned.
Ok let’s go!!!
Recently we have seen a swathe of images of Thor (Chris Hemsworth) and Loki (Tom Hiddleston) potentially on the streets of New York (why is it always New York?!).
it appears that both characters are garbed in their Midgardian outfits, Thor with his traditional hoodie and Loki in an all black ensemble! It’s unclear at this point what they are doing on Earth, and together for that matter, especially considering the fact that at the end of Thor: TDW Loki was masquerading as Odin, All Father. What has brought them back together? Could the next photograph give us a clue?
Apparently from the same set as the other images, we have our first look at Odin, or rather Anthony Hopkins as a tramp, but we are presuming it is Odin. It looks like Loki didn’t kill Odin at the end of TDW but rather exiled him to Earth. Did Loki erase his memory of what had come before to make the exile more effective?
Are Thor and Loki looking for Odin? Why would they be? Surely Loki knows where he dumped his adoptive father?! I have no idea what is going on here but it’s good to see the big three from Asgard back in action.
I have one more picture for you, and it’s the best one!
Just Thor holding a card right? Could be a business card, or a post it. Though you can’t see it in the photo above there is a single line of text on the card “177A Bleaker Street”. If you’re a comic fan like me you probably couldn’t help a huge smile creeping across your face at seeing this address.
For those not in the know, 177A Bleaker Street is the address of the Sanctum Sanctorum, residence of Sorcerer Supreme Dr Stephen Strange! So it looks like we will get a Thor/Dr Strange crossover! Why is Thor seeking the help of an Earth based Sorcerer? Does Strange have information on the Infinity Stones (he is rumoured to be in possession of one inside a magical totem of some kind), or is he seeking help with Odin’s predicament?
Whatever the reason for the appearance I am very excited. If you have read any of my other posts you will know that I LOVE crossovers so the high chance of another one is very pleasing!!!
There’s still a long time to wait until the film comes out in October 2017 so until a trailer is released, this is all we have to go on. What do you think could be going on? Let us know in the comments below.
Have you ever wondered what Thor was up to during Captain America: Civil War? Well now we know, check out the video from Marvel which explains it all!
