Marvel has learned something from Guardians of the Galaxy's success: audiences expect superhero films to be a hell of a lot of fun.
FHM correctly makes that point in introducing these new character posters for Thor: Ragnarok. It's clear in trailers and in these posters that Ragnarok is going for that light-hearted but still action-filled Guardians vibe.
Here's the storyline for Thor: Ragnarok from IMDB:
Imprisoned, the mighty Thor finds himself in a lethal gladiatorial contest against the Hulk, his former ally. Thor must fight for survival and race against time to prevent the all-powerful Hela from destroying his home and the Asgardian civilization.
Hela—Cate Blanchett looking weirdly hot in full-on goth goddess of death mode—seems to present an unusually formidable enemy for Thor, since there's a scene in the film's trailer of her crushing his hammer, Mjölnir.
But he's got his brother Loki (Tom Hiddleston) on his side—maybe—as well as Tessa Thompson's Valkyrie and possibly even gets an assist from Benedict Cumberbatch as Doctor Strange.
Check out more posters below and get ready for the fun when Thor: Ragnarok hits theaters on November 3, 2017.
