A bevy of new images has emerged from the set of ‘Thor: Ragnarok‘. The most striking of these photos are the ones that show Sir Anthony Hopkins in costume. The surprising part is, that instead of wearing the majestic garb of the King of Asgard, Hopkins appears to be slumming it in dirty rags. Chris Hemsworth and Tom Hiddleston were also photographed and appear to be having a good time with each other.
In several shots, Hiddleston is wearing a dapper black suit while Hemsworth is in jeans and a hoodie. With so many taxis around, this could imply that the two will have some sort of undercover encounter in New York. Anthony Hopkins looks like he is having an absolute blast with his tongue out and everything.
The big question comes from examining Hopkins attire. At the end of Thor: The Dark World, Loki had used his favorite hologram move to make himself appear to be Odin. At the end of the movie, the audience was left wondering if Loki had killed the All Father or if he was made to suffer some other fate. These images suggest that Loki simply banished Odin to parts unknown. However, it makes sense to have stripped Odin of his powers and send him to Earth as a wandering transient spouting nonsense about being a Norse god. Keeping Odin close would provide Loki the opportunity to pop in and check on him every now and then.
All we can really put together from these pictures is that at some point, Loki and Thor disguise themselves as regular people in a city full of taxis. Also Anthony Hopkins is dressed in rags in the same city.
Hopefully, the smiles on their faces indicate that Raganrok will be a marked improvement over The Dark World.
Thor: Ragnarok puts the hammer down in theaters on November 3rd, 2017.
