EW reveals first look at Thor, Hela, and Valkyrie from ‘Thor: Ragnarok’

For Asgard! Entertainment Weekly has the first look goods on what we can expect from Thor: Ragnarok. Not only do we have some brand new images but some of the stars of the film dished out some information on Ragnarok’s storyline.

“[Sakaar is] basically where every wormhole across the universe dumps out its trash, so you get people from all walks of life with all sorts of incredible abilities and powers,” Chris Hemsworth explains. “No one cares what prince or king Thor may have been in another world. Also, his strength is pretty easily matched with those he finds himself amongst.”

As for the film’s villain, Hela, Cate Blanchett says that “she’s been locked away for millennia getting more and more cross, and then, with a mistake, she gets unleashed and she ain’t getting back in that box.”

A lot of fans have been worried about the comedic shift that Ragnarok is heading towards but director Taika Waititi (Hunt for the Wilderpeople) doesn’t feel the pressure from the fans. I think sometimes people mistake a tonal shift as ‘We’re just going to make some ridiculous broad comedy where no one gives a s— what happens and everyone gets stoned and sits around talking about saving the universe,’” Waititi says. “We want people to care what happens and care that the hero succeeds. I think tonally it’s like a slight shift. I don’t feel nervous — I feel good about it.”

Hemsworth adds, “Taika has such a quirky, left-of-field sense of humor, which forced all the characters and the tone of the whole story to head in a new direction. Each day we were like, ‘Are we pushing it too far? Are we allowed to have this much fun?’”

In addition to the cover, Entertainment Weekly released some first look images at Thor, Loki, Hela, Valkyrie, Bruce Banner, and The Grandmaster.
