‘Thor: Ragnarok’ First Look Show Thor Got A Haircut | Film News
Marvel fans, rejoice! The agonizing wait for the next piece to fit into the puzzle that will culminate with the Infinity Wars films has been momentarily sated with the first look at the upcoming third Thor movie.
An exclusive with Entertainment Weekly not only provides the upgraded visuals and new villains of Thor: Ragnarok, but also commentary from the production teams and cast.
Chris Hemsworth made quite the entrance into the franchise as the slightly gruff but likeable Thor in 2011, with his long and matted hair permanently tucked behind his ears and the boisterous shout for more coffee that accompanied his smashed coffee mug.
But the cover of EW’s March double issue reveals Thor’s shockingly new haircut – surprisingly normal. Fans of his previous long, golden locks can take consolation in the fact that he’s no less bulky for the third installment in Thor’s standalone movie timeline.
“It was nice not to have to sit in the makeup chair for that hour each morning,” Chris Hemsworth admitted. “It felt like a rebirth for me as the actor but also as the character.”
Thor: Ragnarok will see the return the Norse god to the big screen, but he won’t be alone. Academy Award winner Cate Blanchett makes her Marvel Cinematic Universe debut as the terrifying Goddess of Death, Hela.
Blanchett seems more than invested into the character, if her commitment to learning the Brazilian martial art, capoeira, with stuntwoman, Zoë Bell, to prepare for the role says anything.
“She’s been locked away for millennia getting more and more cross, and then, with a mistake, she gets unleashed and she ain’t getting back in that box,” explains Blanchett animatedly.
The upcoming Thor film also introduces director, Taika Waititi, to the MCU mix. His involvement in the film brings hopes to the fans anxious to see Thor survive Ragnarok, a word which here translates to “The Doom Of The Gods” and doesn’t bode well for Thor.
“Taika has such a quirky, left-of-field sense of humor, which forced all the characters and the tone of the story to head in a new direction,” Hemsworth shared about the new director. “Each day we were like, ‘Are we pushing it too far? Are we allowed to have this much fun?’”
MCU fans are currently unsure of whether to expect a comedy or a tragedy but we’ll have to wait until November to find out!
