For the first time in the MCU’s short, yet decorated history, 2017 brought about the release of three big-name releases in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, Spider-Man: Homecoming and Thor: Ragnarok. The latter Marvel tentpole is yet to hit theaters, but with only three months to go until the God of Thunder is back on our screens, today brings forth two stunning new international posters (seen below) designed to showcase the threequel’s impressive A-list cast.
Front and center is Chris Hemsworth as the titular Asgardian, who will be sporting a cropped new hairstyle while trying to fend off Ragnarok. To do so, he’ll have to fight his way back through the Seven Realms, beginning with a Herculean brawl against Mark Ruffalo’s Hulk – much to the delight of Jeff Goldblum’s all-wise Grandmaster, who is tucked away in the bottom right of today’s international one-sheet alongside the returning Odin (played by the inimitable Anthony Hopkins).
Also of note, just behind Hemsworth’s Norse god is Tessa Thompson’s Valkyrie, a fearless warrior who goes on to become an unlikely ally to Thor once he crash lands on Sakaar. And then there’s Loki. Tom Hiddleston’s God of Mischief is a bona fide fan-favorite when it comes to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and even Thor: Ragnarok‘s trailers – trailers that had Loki and his step-brother, Thor, fighting side-by-side – have left many comic book fans (us included!) giddy with excitement.
Last and certainly not least is the imposing Hela, Goddess of Death. Brought to life with great menace by the über-talented Cate Blanchett, it’s believed Hela will be harnessing the power of the sixth and final Infinity Stone to bring Asgard to its knees. Eek!
Nipping at the heels of both Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 and Spider-Man: Homecoming, Taika Waititi’s all-star Thor: Ragnarok will complete Marvel’s 2017 lineup on November 3rd. We’ve included those two international one-sheets below, with the only difference being that Cate Blanchett’s Goddess of Death is pictured without her spiky helmet.
