Disney and Marvel unveiled new footage, images and concept art from “Thor: Ragnarok” at this year’s CinemaCon in Las Vegas. “Trust me,” said Dave Hollis, Disney’s executive vice president for Theatrical Exhibition Sales & Distribution, “This is a Thor like no other.” Hollis also reminded the room that “Ragnorok” marks the on-screen return of the Hulk.
According to the movie’s synopsis, Thor and the Hulk are initially pitted against each other in the Sakaaran gladiator fights, but the footage at CinemaCon showed them in what could be a team-up. According to ComicBook.com’s Brandon Davis, the footage showed Thor standing on the Hulk’s shoulders as they both fought for their lives. Marvel has also certainly suggested an eventual team-up with their promotional merchandising for the film.
Thor will also reportedly wear his famous winged helmet at some point in “Ragnarok,” a signature look in the comics that’s often missing from the film scenes for practical purposes.
The footage from CinemaCon showed Thor wearing the same short-haired, armored look from previous pictures on-set. He was shown racing into battle on Sakaar.
Directed by Taika Waititi from a screenplay by Eric Pearson, “Thor: Ragnarok” stars Chris Hemsworth, Cate Blanchett, Tom Hiddleston, Idris Elba, Jeff Goldblum, Tessa Thompson, Mark Ruffalo and more. It opens in theaters on November 3, 2017.
