As of late, the set of Thor: Ragnarok has been generously providing us fans with images of both new and returning characters for us to fawn over until the film’s release next year. Just last week, we got what appeared to be our first look at Cate Blanchett on set as the villainous Hela, and then yesterday, we were greeted with images of both Thor (Chris Hemsworth) and Loki (Tom Hiddleston) filming a scene on the streets of Brisbane. Those images also brought along a fun surprise for Marvel fans with the inclusion of a card bearing a single address.
In the latest addition to the growing library of set photos, Reddit user thunderjesus, as well as the news site Courier Mail, managed to sneak a glimpse at Anthony Hopkin‘s Odin on set looking certainly less regal than his past appearances in the franchise.
Rumor has it that Odin will be somewhat of a vagabond in the third Thor installment, and if these pictures are any indication, I’d say that idea is on point.
Here’s the original rumor from Geek.com that they dropped back in January.
It seems that the Allfather is fully aware of what the God of Lies is up to on Asgard and his retreat may have been a strategic one. When we see him next, Odin will be on Earth, incognito as a apocalyptic herald, warning the residents of Midgard about the upcoming cataclysm known as Ragnarok. It is here that he’ll eventually run into Thor, revealing to the Thunderer just how bad things are. Sounds like Odin will once again deliver some juicy exposition about the history of the universe and maybe give us some glimpses into just who might be behind the end of all things!
Thor: Ragnarok, which will be directed by Taika Waititi, stars Chris Hemsworth as Thor, Tom Hiddleston as Loki, Cate Blanchett as Hela, Tessa Thompson as Valkyrie, and Mark Ruffalo as Bruce Banner/Hulk. Also appearing in the film are Jeff Goldblum as the Grandmaster, Karl Urban as Surge, Idris Elba as Heimdall, and Anthony Hopkins as Odin. Ragnarok will hit movie theaters on November 3rd, 2017.
