Chris Hemsworth as Thor
Thor is ready to Ragna-rock the Marvel Cinematic Universe. As Chris Hemsworth’s Asgardian Avenger readies to rumble with “friend from work” Hulk on the planet Sakaar and prevent the Goddess of Death from bringing about the end of his world, eight new character posters for Thor: Ragnarok have debuted with new looks at gladiator Hulk, Loki, Heimdall, and new additions like Tessa Thompson’s Valkyrie and Jeff Goldblum’s The Grandmaster. Plus, Odin (Anthony Hopkins) still seems alive and well in his one-sheet. Thor: Ragnarok will hit theaters on Nov. 3, and you can see the full set of new posters in this gallery.
Mark Ruffalo as Hulk
In this latest installment to the Thor saga, our hero is flung through space after a battle with Hela and he finds himself on the planet Sakaar, where he’s forced to fight in gladiatorial style fights with Hulk. The giant rage monster, meanwhile, enjoys being a champion of the arena and isn’t too eager to revert back to Bruce Banner.
Idris Elba as Heimdall
Another mainstay of the Thor films, Elba returns as the all-seeing Heimdall. He warned Thor during a vision in Avengers: Age of Ultron that the God of Thunder would send them all to hell. Let’s hope he can turn things around.
Tessa Thompson as Valkyrie
Thompson is redefining the role of Valkyrie, a typically blonde Norse warrior goddess who has history with Hela. “Thor is a bit of a fanboy for the Valkyrie, the elite women warriors,” Hemsworth told EW.
Anthony Hopkins as Odin
When Thor learns Loki has been impersonating their father, he goes in search of him. But the lax governing of Asgard leads to the reemergence of Hela, which causes problems.
Tom Hiddleston as Loki
Up to his old tricks, Loki will spar with Valkyrie, who quickly realizes the god is not to be trusted. “That fight was so much fun. So much fun,” Thompson said of the “punchy” choreography to their skirmish.
Cate Blanchett as Hela
Blanchett becomes the MCU’s first female villain with Hela, the Goddess of Death. “There’s so much untapped potential villainy in women,” she said. “It’s really exciting. I think finally it’s beginning to be acknowledged that women and men want to see a diverse array of characters, and that’s race, gender across the sexual spectrum.”
Jeff Goldblum as The Grandmaster
Goldblum described The Grandmaster as “a hedonist, a pleasure-seeker, an enjoyer of life and tastes and smells.” As the head of the gladiatorial games on Sakaar, he’s always in search of new champions for the arena.
