A photo of a new line of Thor: Ragnarok concession products has surfaced online. The highly anticipated sequel from new director Taika Waititi is due out Nov. 3, as Chris Hemsworth reprises his role as the title character alongside returning Asgardian favorites like Loki (Tom Hiddleston) and Odin (Anthony Hopkins) in addition to new faces like Cate Blanchett as Hela and Jeff Goldblum as Grandmaster. Ragnarok will also follow in the footsteps of Captain America: Civil War (although to a smaller extent) and see some overlap with other big hitters in the Marvel Cinematic Universe like The Hulk (Mark Ruffalo) and Doctor Stephen Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch).
The appearance of The Hulk has been particularly hyped ahead of Thor: Ragnarok's release, especially the scene featuring Thor and Hulk doing battle in Grandmaster's gladiator-style arena. The character's guest role was inevitably going to cross over into merchandising for the movie, and it appears that he will even be a part of the selection of concession items you could find at theaters upon its release.
Thanks to a recent reveal on Reddit, we have a photo featuring a special concessions product-line dedicated to Thor: Ragnarok, presumably from a manufacturer's listing as full case prices are listed. The products include a drink cup shaped like the hammer that Hulk can be seen wielding when he battles Thor in the teaser trailer, as well as a popcorn bucket shaped like The Hulk's fist. There's also a metal popcorn tin and a line of drink "toppers" in the molds of Thor, Hulk, Hela, and Valkyrie (Tessa Thompson). Check out the products below:
The Hulk fist popcorn bucket closely resembles the one seen in photos of a product line on the official website of Cinema Scene Marketing, but it's unclear where the above photo of these Thor: Ragnarok concessions originated. The Cinema Scene product line also includes larger Ragnarok popcorn buckets and standard drink cups dedicated to the movie.
The Hulk has dominated the marketing push for Thor: Ragnarok in terms of supporting characters and has appeared to be getting as much (or more) of a push than Thor himself. But Hulk fans certainly won't complain about that, and many will gladly grab these souvenirs if and when they can find them at their local Ragnarok showings. The per-item prices in the photo are also likely going to be much lower than they look in the photo, so you won't have to worry about blowing your life savings at the theater.
This product line may not be the end of Thor: Ragnarok concessions, but it will certainly invite one peculiar question: Where's Thor? The Hulk is heavily featured here. Collectors and fans of the title character may be wondering if there will also be a drink cup shaped like Thor's hammer Mjolnir to go with Hulk's hammer cup. It's only the latest example of the massive push that The Hulk is getting for the sequel.
