A new batch of posters for Marvel’s Thor: Ragnarok has been released, showcasing different art styles for both the heroes and villains. The God of Thunder comes back in his third solo film, accompanied by fellow Avenger Hulk, to save Asgard from destruction and stop a powerful new threat: Hela.
Directed by Taika Waititi (What We Do In The Shadows), Thor: Ragnarok is part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s Phase Three and marks the comeback of Thor and Hulk after Avengers: Age of Ultron. As the release date approaches, Marvel has been releasing more material and merchandise, such as these new posters with different art styles that also keep the colorful aesthetic of the film.
This batch includes individual posters for Thor, Hulk, Loki, and Hela, and two posters featuring Valkyrie alongside both Avengers. Most of these posters are illustrations with vibrant colors, which has become a trademark for the film. However, one of Thor’s individual posters from this new batch has more of a street-fight vibe, announcing the battle between “The Mighty Thor” and “The Incredible Hulk” at Sakaar’s Battle Arena. Hela’s posters aren't as vibrant as the rest but still manage to stand out with a green palette (just like her costume) and a graffiti style.

In the film, Hela is the Goddess of Death, inadvertently released from her prison after being locked away for millennia and is looking for revenge and the destruction of Asgard. Another new character, here featured with Thor and company, is Valkyrie (Tessa Thompson), an Asgardian residing on Sakaar as a bounty hunter. Valkyrie possesses superhuman strength, stamina, speed and durability; she is an extremely powerful combatant, wielding a double edged sword. Naturally, she becomes a key member in Thor’s team to defeat Hela and company.
After being held captive on the other side of the universe, Thor must win a gladiatorial duel in Sakaar against Hulk in order to return to Asgard and stop Hela – with the help of Valkyrie and Loki – from destructing the realm. Rounding up the cast - and not featured in the posters - are Jeff Goldblum as the Grandmaster; Benedict Cumberbatch reprising his role as Stephen Strange; Anthony Hopkins as Odin, Karl Urban as Skurge, and Sam Neill in a still undisclosed role.
Marvel keeps on proving that Thor: Ragnarok will be different from the previous Thor films (and probably from the rest of the MCU to date) not only in terms of narrative but also in aesthetic, with trailers that enhance the cinematography and color palette, and vibrant posters that definitely make the anticipation go higher.
