Thor: Ragnarok's two Avengers get their own magazine covers, highlighting this fall's big brawl. In just a few months, Marvel's final film of 2017 will arrive—and it looks to be one of their weirdest and funniest ones yet. With a majority of the dialogue improvised and director Taika Waititi hoping audiences leave the film feeling uplifted, Ragnarok looks like it could be the most unique entry in the MCU. And with the film coming up fast, marketing for the movie has continued to give fans plenty of new material.
Thanks to the SDCC trailer for the movie, we have an even better idea of the story, action, and villains in the new film. And proving just how popular the look at the film was, it's remained one of the most talked-about topics from Comic-Con. Given the relative lack of competition Thor 3 will face when it arrives in November, Marvel should have the biggest hit of the trilogy on their hands if the positive buzz for the film can continue. Luckily, the promotional push for the film is just getting started.
Empire has unveiled the dual covers for the latest issue of their magazine, which will feature a heavy focus on Thor: Ragnarok. As such, the two covers offer us new looks at both Hulk and Thor from the film. Check them out:

So far, much of the film's focus has been on the gladiator battle between Hulk and Thor. Of course, that highly anticipated brawl will only be the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the film's action. Thor will finally take on Surtur in the new movie, while Hulk will face off against Fenris. The two will have to team up, however, to take down Hela.
As a special bonus, subscribers of Empire will also get to see Thor and Hela's battle teased. A few days ago, we got our first look at a third cover for the magazine, evoking the comic book origins of the hero and villain. And with months left before the film premieres, more exciting covers will be on their way.
In the meantime, we've been getting more insight into the film. Our recent interviews with the cast helped to explain new character Topaz and her rivalry with Valkyrie. We also found out a bit more about why Skurge will be siding with Hela, despite his Asgardian heritage. Luckily, the nature of Thor: Ragnarok means all the best reveals, jokes, and action sequences will likely be saved for the film.
