Never mind Hela’s magnificent headpiece, Thor’s new look or even the Grandmaster’s gladiatorial arena on Sakaar — the real showstopper of Thor: Ragnarok may be the Incredible Hulk’s bedroom.
Pieces from several Marvel Studios releases, as well as director Taika Waititi’s film, are on display at the Queensland Gallery of Modern Art in Brisbane, Australia. That’s where visitors can see the Hulkbuster armor from Avengers: Age of Ultron, several iterations of Captain America’s costume from across the Marvel Cinematic Universe and, oh, the Hulk’s jaw-dropping bed from Ragnarok.

Yes, it’s literally jaw-dropping, as it appears to be crafted from the skull of a gigantic alien beast. What did you expect, something from Ikea?
It’s certainly dramatic, even if it doesn’t look particularly comfortable: The creature’s lower jaw forms the headboard, with the rest of the skull providing the frame and base; its incisors make fearsome bedposts. The sheets and netting soften the look a little, while the painting on the bone carries through some of the Jack Kirby-style design elements seen in the initial trailer.
“Marvel: Creating the Cinematic Universe” runs Saturday through Sept. 3 at the Queensland Gallery of Modern Art.
Opening Nov. 3, Thor: Ragnarok stars Chris Hemsworth as Thor, Tom Hiddleston as Loki, Cate Blanchett as Hela, Idris Elba as Heimdall, Jeff Goldblum as Grandmaster, Tessa Thompson as Valkyrie, Karl Urban as Skurge, Mark Ruffalo as Bruce Banner/the Hulk and Anthony Hopkins as Odin.
