A new look had befallen Thor: Ragnarok’s Chris Hemsworth. Set photos posted via Mark Ruffalo’s Instagram showed the duo together and another with Hemsworth looking at his phone. Ruffalo confirmed wrapping up his part on the Thor set, so it would make sense taking snapshots as mementos prior to his departure. Could this mean Mark’s part as the human Bruce Banner was shorter than expected? Mark Instagram-posted his satisfaction.
“Had such a great good fun time making this movie. Thanks Taika Waititi, Chris Hemsworth, Tessa Thompson, and Marvel for the love and the laughs.”
At the 2016 San Diego Comic-Con, a documentary-style VHS quality format clip revealed Thor with warpaint along with some trimmed up hair, according to io9. That said, there almost looks to be a match between the documentary description and the Instagram posts.
A reporter over at io9 recalled the scene shown at the convention to be very short. From what was recalled, he said it was a bit different from what was pictured here. The new look on the Thor: Ragnarok movie set seems to be not unlike Marvel Comics’ The Unworthy Thor title.
Thor: Ragnarok rumors about the short hairstyle were released as a scoop by JoBlo back in May. Play-by-play details were given that involved an element to Planet Hulk, and within the description were details regarding Thor and Hulk’s physical appearances — the former to have a shaved head and the green giant to sport the single-shouldered armor piece which in fact was on display at the San Diego Comic-Con.

Actor Karl Urban even showed off his bald head to give to his role an accurate portrayal of Skurge the Executioner. That said, there seems to be a trend of sleeker hairstyles in Thor: Ragnarok. Could this mean less hair entanglement while in combat?

As of now, according to the Plain Dealer, the Thor: Ragnarok movie is halfway done filming in Australia. Set photos of what appears to be Asgard, or one of the other nine realms, made their way online, according to ComicBookMovie.

Cate Blanchett is playing Hela in the third Thor flick and Ruffalo indeed speaks highly of her villainous role in a report by Entertainment Weekly. She is known to comic fans as The Death Queen.
“She plays the worst of the worst. So evil. She is going to kill us. It’s such a great part she gets to play.”
Hela’s role in the world of comic books entails her leadership of the dead. This role was given to her by Odin
Thor: Ragnarok also added Jeff Goldblum to the Marvel Studios cast as he’ll portray Grandmaster, a role that represents a highly intelligent and old character in the Marvel universe. He once held the Mind Stone, one of the Infinity Stones pursued by the Mad Titan, Thanos. He’s known to pit people together in game scenarios. Will Goldblum’s role pit Thor and Hulk together?
Creed’s Tessa Thompson will play Valkyrie, and most recently she teased the character’s sword on Instagram. Director Taika Waititi explained how he thought her casting in Thor: Ragnarok was important regardless of resistance from some fans, according to Indie Wire.
“The fact that we even have to keep having this conversation is ridiculous, because we keep forgetting. Unless it’s the topic of the film, it just shouldn’t even be — what do we even care? I think the story is king, and you want the best person for the job. And Tessa tested against — we cast a very broad net, and Tess was the best person.”
Tom Hiddleston returns as Loki as well as Idris Elba as Heimdall. Anthony Hopkins is also returning as Odin.
The Thor:Ragnarok movie opens in theaters on Nov. 3, 2017.
