The INSIDER Summary:
- Three costumes used in the next “Thor” movie are on display at Disney’s fan convention, D23 Expo, this weekend.

- His mighty hammer was shattered in the first teaser trailer released for the film.
Disney fans at D23 Expo Friday morning got their first look at a few costumes and props from “Thor: Ragnarok,” the third film in the “Thor” series.
These aren’t replicas or doubles. They’re the real deal. Keep reading to see the three “Thor: Ragnarok” costumes that we checked out at D23 Expo for new characters the Grandmaster (Jeff Goldblum) and Valkyrie (Tessa Thompson) and Thor himself (Chris Hemsworth).
Thor is going to be down on his luck a bit in “Ragnarok.” After his home world of Asgard gets taken over by Hela (Cate Blanchett) and his beloved hammer destroyed, Thor appears to be sent to some sort of gladiator-style prison where he’ll be wearing the getup seen above.
It’s interesting Thor has a teal plate on his lower right leg. Is that some sort of brace covering an injury or just a fashion statement?
The real highlight here are the two swords he’ll be using in the film after villain Hela destroys his hammer, Mjolnir.
And, of course, Thor wouldn’t be complete without some sort of red cape. This one’s looking a bit worse for wear.
The Grandmaster is one of the oldest characters in the Marvel universe who doesn’t age. Above all else, he enjoys a good game. It looks like he’s in charge of running a giant Gladiator pit in “Ragnarok” when he crosses paths with Thor. Maybe that explains his very regal look.
In the comics, the character becomes obsessed with studying civilizations and their games.
Perhaps the most fun part of The Grandmaster’s costume are his open-toed sandals.
Another new addition to “Ragnarok,” Valkyrie brings Thor to the Grandmaster in the first teaser trailer released for the film. She wears a lot of leather.
Here are her and the Grandmaster’s costumes side by side.
You can’t see it that well from the front, but all of that black is accented with a teal sash that trails behind her.
We should be hearing more about “Thor 3” as the weekend continues. “Thor Ragnarok” will be in theaters November 3, 2017.
