Thor: Ragnarok Concept Art for Surtur’s Dragon, Minions is, Well, Hot

Concept artist Ian Joyner has revealed a few designs he worked on for Thor: Ragnarok, depicting different takes on the creatures that the fire demon, Surtur, commanded in the field of battle against the Odinson.

In the opening scene of Taika Waititi’s film, Thor took on Surtur in the fire realm, Muspelheim, to find out Odin’s whereabouts following the events of Thor: The Dark World, eventually defeating the monster. Joyner took to Instagram to unveil a couple takes of the dragon Surtur had defending him, including the concept art of when it gets decapitated at the Bifrost Bridge after trying to chase Thor.

This was the first approved design I did of Surtur’s #Dragon for #thorragnarok under the guidance of @andyparkart We had a lot of directions for what the dragon could end up being but nothing felt quite right. In the end we decided to reverse engineer from its final ‘gag’ as the severed head, after this I began exploring how it might look when living! You can see a lot of alternate designs done for the #dragon in the art book. More to come here on my Instagram or at my #artstation page. Fun fact, this guy had his debut at the Halloween #guardiansofthegalaxy ride at #Disneyland about a month before the film came out!#marvelstudios #mcu #conceptart #creaturedesign

Joyner also revealed concept art for Surtur’s minions, which Thor had to fight off with his trusty hammer, Mjolnir, just before he takes out the fire demon and carries its skull back to Asgard as a trophy. Despite all of these antics, Surtur would get the last laugh in the movie, destroying Asgard and bringing about Ragnarok as prophesied.

In theaters now, Thor: Ragnarok is directed by Taika Waititi and 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/Hulk and Anthony Hopkins as Odin.
