One of the mega show stoppers from San Diego Comic-Con last month was definitely the debut of the second trailer for Marvel’s Thor: Ragnarok. This movie looks awesome as Thor (Chris Hemsworth), Loki (Tom Hiddleston), Hulk (Mark Ruffalo) and the newly debuted Valkyrie (Tessa Thompson) come together to stop Hela, The Goddess of Death from destroying Asgard.
If the trailer doesn’t get you pumped up, then check out the below brand new pictures released by Entertainment Weekly on Monday. In the new photos, we see Valkyrie and Loki in the midst of what looks like a pretty intense and dangerous exchange. Thompson spoke with EW about her experience with filming the fight scenes:
“That fight was so much fun. So much fun. First of all. the choreography was really punchy and physical, not as much sword work which sort of keeps you at arm’s length with people. I think because Tom’s character is involved there’s a cheekiness to that fight that made it just really fun — it just felt like a tennis match. I don’t know if it remains but there were a lot of one-liners between us. So it has a real sort of sense of humor.”
She goes on to explain that she feels Valkyrie shares more in common with Loki than she does with the title character Thor:
“Eventually she figures out Lok’s not to be trusted. I just think there’s something about two folks that kind of come from the same place in a sense, that have the same chip on their shoulder in a way. There’s a thin line between how much they hate and love each other.”
In addition to the awesome Valkyrie and Loki photo, EW also released a brand new photo of the group of heroes. This image is pretty breathtaking. Check it out.
Thor: Ragnarok lands in theaters on November 3rd. Are you excited?
