‘Thor Ragnarok': First Look at Superhero’s New ‘Do, Cate Blanchett as Villain

See why Chris Hemsworth doesn’t have to spend an extra hour in a makeup chair every morning

Thor’s fresh new haircut is featured alongside Cate Blanchett’s Hela and Tessa Thompson’s Valkyrie on the cover of Entertainment Weekly’s latest issue, which offers up a first official look at Marvel’s “Thor: Ragnarok.”

In the cover story, Hemsworth talks about not having to spend an extra hour on a makeup chair every morning to get his signature locks right.

“It was nice not to have to sit in the makeup chair for that hour each morning. It felt like a rebirth for me as the actor but also as the character,” said Hemsworth.

Plot details are scarce for “Ragnarok,” but Blanchett managed to tease the backstory for her villain, Hela.

Said Blanchett: “She’s been locked away for millennia getting more and more cross, and then, with a mistake, she gets unleashed and she ain’t getting back in that box.”

The sequel will feature Thor (Hemsworth) and Bruce Banner (Mark Ruffalo), a.k.a. The Incredible Hulk, working closely together, no doubt trying to stop the end of at least one world.

The returning cast for the film includes Hiddleston as Loki, Jaimie Alexander as Sif, Anthony Hopkins as Odin, and Idris Elba as Heimdall. New cast members include Blanchett, Jeff Goldblum and Karl Urban.

Taika Waititi is directing, with Stephany Folsom, Craig Kyle, Eric Pearson and Christopher Yost having worked on the screenplay.

“Thor Ragnarok” is set to premiere in theaters on Nov. 3, 2017.
