Some potential spoilers are below. If you’re trying to avoid even the slightest of spoilers, I’d suggest skipping over this post.
Days after getting our potential first look at Cate Blanchett‘s Hela on the set of Thor: Ragnarok, we now have our first look at Thor himself, Chris Hemsworth, alongside Loki, Tom Hiddleston, filming on the project. Interestingly enough, while most of the set pieces we’ve seen have been for Asgard over the past month, both Hemsworth and Hiddleston were spotted filming a scene in Brisbane served in place of New York. Hemsworth took to Instagram on Saturday to post a photo of him and Hiddleston between filming sitting in front of a newspaper stand with various headlines asking about Thor’s return. As you’ll note in the photos below, both Thor and Loki are spotted in rather normal attire – or in Loki’s case, formal attire. Where this scene takes place in the film is unknown, however, it does appear there’s a specific reason they’ve made their way to New York.
Following the release of the photos below, another one hit early this morning that gives us a better understanding of just why the two Gods are back in New York. If you zoom in on the card Thor (Hemsworth) is holding, you’ll note that the address is 177A Bleaker St. If that sounds familiar, it’s because that is where Doctor Strange’s Sanctum Sanctorum is located. Why, exactly, they’re on the hunt for the Doctor in this film is unknown at this moment, however, the connection is one that is sure to excite fans.
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.
