The new Thor: Ragnarok movie poster for Australia and New Zealand has been released, and the third solo movie for the Norse God Of Thunder is set to introduce in a brand new avatar. For Avengers fans, gathering from the trailers and the posters, the movie is important as it will decide the fate of both Thor and The Incredible Hulk. The movie is also set to introduce a new villain, the Goddess of Death, to be played by the talented Cate Blanchett.
The poster released also continued the trend of colorful, neon illuminated palette from previous trailers and posters, something which has set this MCU installment apart from the previous ones. The poster features all the main characters set to make an appearance in the movie – Thor (played by Chris Hemsworth) is front and center, with Tom Hiddleston as Loki, Mark Ruffalo as the Gladiator Hulk. Cate Blanchett as Hela The Goddess of Death also features prominently on the poster. Also appearing on the poster are Heimdall (Idris Elba who is the British actor who appeared in The Wire and Luther), Loki (Tom Hiddleston), Valkyrie (Tessa Thompson), Odin (Anthony Hopkins) and Grandmaster (Jeff Goldblum).
Fans suggest that the ambiguous expression on Loki’s face on the poster suggests the tenuous relationship between him and Thor, and many expect the brothers to have a go at each other during this movie. The movie also brings back Odin, played by the Anthony Hopkins in the movie. Odin had disappeared after Thor: The Dark World when Loki had faked his own death and taken Odin’s form to become the ruler of Asgard while stashing his adopted father somewhere. Hardcore fans will be excited about the manner of Odin’s return as well as family wounds that have bound to open up.
