    Wowsers, covers are usually like whatever for me, but SHORT HAIR THOR????? Didn't see that coming. Also, cool to see him rocking some new sabres as I've heard that he will duke it out with Hulk at some point and for whatever reason, he won't have mjolnir in that fight.

    I cant remember, is this basically replacing the planet hulk storyline somewhat? Or absorbing its ideas?

    Word is that it is pretty much Marvel Studios doing somewhat of a hybrid blend between the Planet Hulk story line and the Ragnarok story line.

    I think "adapting" is a more accurate term. Hulk is confirmed and his armor from Planet Hulk made an appearance at one of the comic conventions last year. There was also an extra on the Doctor Strange disc that shows some rough animation of Hulk in armor fighting Thor in some kind of Battle Arena.

    Will be curious to see how he gets there then, considering the PH storyline is much different in terms of his transportation.

    Doctor Strange is also confirmed as appearing in Thor: Ragnarok and he makes the most sense to get Thor (who is stranded on Earth) back to Asgard or one of the other realms. Doctor Strange will most likely bring the Eye of Agamotto/ Time Stone along for the ride and bring it one step closer to Thanos.

    I'm sure that will look much better on screen. Right now it's a bit cheesy

    Should Batman be allowed to comment in a Marvel thread?

    I believe Goldblum is supposed to be the brother to The Collector from Guardians of the Galaxy (Benecio Del Toro's character) so maybe the colors emphasize how different he is. I'm sure Goldblum is going to own every scene he's in, so a visually-loud costume makes sense.

    I can't help but immediately think that this is Marvel trying to take away the color palette from Suicide Squad. Much of the early-success for Suicide Squad was due to the marketing and use of vibrant colors in the posters and after-effects graphics in the trailers. I think this could be a good thing, as Thor: The Dark World, as the title indicates, was a rather muted film from a costume perspective where everything felt kind of drab. In some cases it's hard to make out details of fight scenes because of how dark & grey everything was. It's almost hard to re-watch Thor: The Dark World during the day because any ambient light in the room washes out certain scenes - you almost need a perfectly dark room in order to see everything.

    Taika Waititi has already talked about the look and feel they are going for with this film, which is an 80s hard metal one, and it was all prior to what Suicide Squad ended up doing from a color perspective in their final cut. In fact, David Ayer's Suicide Squad was never meant to look and feel like we got until after the tremendous success of that one particular trailer led to the Studio intervening and bringing in that trailer creation team to help cut the final movie, which in hindsight, was probably a major mistake. The original look was much more gritty and grungy. With that said, that Suicide Squad color palette was a very last-minute change-up prior to Thor:Ragnarok's direction. Back to Ragnarok, that 80s hard metal look was initially established to the audience way back when their original logo was released, and they've kept to that same tone with everything released subsequently. I call it almost kind of a He-Man look:

    I'll actually be the first to admit that I hated the original logo, but this entire look has grown on me with everything that has been released since, particularly this Entertainment Weekly cover, which looks amazing. On a side note, regardless of what anyone thinks of the quality of the Thor movies, I think we can ALL agree that Chris Hemsworth was MADE to be Thor. That dude is amazing and his new look here looks pretty BA.

    I agree on the cheese, but I'm gonna wait to judge on this one as my guess is his look will eventually tie in very nicely into the movie.

    Billionaire superheroes can enjoy movies about fake universes too.

    Getting bad vibes from this new Thor movie. Seems like they are trying to have a Guardians look but I can't imagine the dynamic will be as effective.

    Right now I'm just putting my faith in Taika Waititi that he knows what he is doing. If anything, what worries me most is how much comedy they are trying to infiltrate into it. Don't get me wrong, I like a laugh here and there, but I just don't want them to go overboard with it.

    If he uses sly comedy like he did on his Wilderpeople movie it should be fine. If it goes all out for laughs, Ill lose interest.
