With each new super-hero movie, there comes what? A growing disdain for the genre, another reason for Kevin Smith to not stop talking, a new wave of the same action figures with slightly different paint schemes and accessories? Well, yes, but the answer we’re looking for… is NEW costumes! When a super-hero gets a movie sequel, it’s a give in they’re going to get new digs. Why? Well, it’s kind of the same reason why Kraft Mac & Cheese keeps coming out with those funky macaroni shapes based on cartoons like the Ninja Turtles (mmm turtle shaped macaroni *drool*) and other licenses… same product but it’s something “NEW” to market.
So, here we are, in the thick of production of Marvel’s Thor 3. All the familiar faces are back: Thor, Loki, Odin, and others. And, yep, those Asgardians clearly have a walk-in closet full of warrior regalia. After the jump, see what new threads our heroes and villain be sportin’.
Loki’s costume doesn’t look all that different from what he wore in Avengers and Thor: The Dark Word except slightly more refined. Odin is outfitted in bright orange robes as well as that trademark gold eyepatch. Thor’s costume, however, has seemingly had a complete redesign and features an entirely new torso – gone are the 6 circular disks. Looks to be inspired by his Heroic Age/Godbutcher-Era…
Also, non-costume related, notice how bigger swole Hemsworth is this time around? Must be those Asgardian milkshakes and all that time playing with his, um, hammer.
Marvel’s Thor: Ragnarok is directed by Taika Waititi, and it stars Chris Hemsworth (Thor), Tom Hiddleston (Loki), Idris Elba (Heimdall), Sir Anthony Hopkins (Odin), Tessa Thompson (Valkyrie), Karl Urban (Skurge), Mark Ruffalo (Hulk), with Jeff Goldblum (Grandmaster) and Cate Blanchett (Hela). And Thor: Ragnarok is set to open in theaters on November 3, 2017.
