Original Concept Art for Thor: Ragnarok's Grandmaster was Comics-Accurate

Jeff Goldblum Grandmaster

The original concept art for Thor: Ragnarok's Grandmaster was far more comic book accurate than the final design -- and looked far less like Jeff Goldblum.

Senior Illustrator at Marvel Studios Jackson Sze shared the first design he created for The Grandmaster on Instagram. The artwork depicts the character as co-creator Sal Buscema originally presented him. As Sze mentions in his post, Marvel Studios always looks to the source first before deviating. This design was likely created before Goldblum was even cast in the role.

In his post, Sze credits his coworker Constantine Sekeris, who developed the final look for the film.
