Disney’s fan celebration D23 Expo kicked off Friday in Anaheim California and there are plenty of reveals and exclusive items for guests to see.
The Marvel booth is showing off all sorts of cool stuff including costumes from “Thor: Ragnarok” and some teases of the next “Avengers” movie.
One of the coolest things we saw Friday morning was a new poster for the next “Thor” movie showing the God of Thunder (Chris Hemsworth) and the Hulk (Mark Ruffalo) ready to face off.
Take a look:
The scene is straight from the end of the first “Thor” teaser trailer released in April.
INSIDER was on hand as Marvel Cinematic Universe visual development supervisor Andy Park showed off the poster he designed exclusively for D23 Expo. Park walked fans through the conception and process of bringing the poster to life.
After showing concept art for Marvel movies he has worked on since 2012’s “Avengers,” signed copies of the “Thor: Ragnarok” poster were given out to attendees where Park took the time to speak with and take photos with fans.
Park also showed off some other Ragnarok concept art which has Thor, and their father, Odin, who we have yet to see in a teaser for the film. This is a piece of artwork currently being shown in a gallery in Brisbane, Australia.
The artwork shows Thor atop Loki, the Hulk, and new character Valkyrie as villainess Hela (Cate Blanchett) lurks in the background.
“I did know he was going to have short hair,” said Park of designing Thor’s new look for “Ragnarok.” “They told us and at first I was a little conflicted. I was like, ‘Do I want to see Thor with short hair?’ But, now, I think it’s amazing.”
Here’s a closer look at Thor that Park shared:
Do you see that familiar face near the bottom? That’s Odin (Anthony Hopkins), Thor’s father. We’ll have to wait to learn where he’ll pop up in the new film.
We’re expecting to see and hear more about the next “Thor” movie as D23 Expo unfolds. “Thor: Ragnarok” will be in theaters November 3, 2017.
