News - Anthony Hopkins Looks Different in 'Thor: Ragnarok'
With production in full swing on Thor: Ragnarok, we're starting to get an idea of how the characters will look. The biggest question mark that Thor: The Dark World left us with was the fate of Odin. Whether this is Loki disguised as Odin or Odin himself remains to be seen, but it's definitely Anthony Hopkins and he's looking particularly haggard and disheveled.
I have no idea what to think about Thor: Ragnarok at this juncture. This new movie has so much weird going on with it that it's either very inspired or just desperate for attention. First you've got Taika Waititi directing (What We Do in the Shadows), then it's revealed that it's a road trip movie with the Hulk, and finally they release the title logo which looks like it was lifted straight out of an arcade from the '80s. Oh, and now we have hobo Odin who is slumming it up in the streets of Midgard. Well, they have my curiosity at least, I'm just a bit tired of Thor being comedic. I want to see a badass God of Thunder that doesn't play around for once.
I still have faith that this will be an entertaining flick, all of Marvel Studios other films have been. I guess I just wish they'd capitalize on just how freaking cool Thor can be. You really can't quite convey that if you build a comedic buddy flick around him. We will know if this gamble pays off for Marvel come November 3rd, 2017 when the film hits theaters.
