Thor’s Loss of Luscious Locks Explained

Taika Waititi is set to debut Thor: Ragnarok on November 3 but fans noticed something was missing from Chris Hemsworth in the first photos. Namely Thor’s hair (but also Mjölnir). All has been explained.

Entertainment Weekly got the exact explanation in the course of their exclusive first look. It sort of deals with the plot of the film so if you wanted to go in fresh maybe don’t read this quoted bit from their article:

When we last saw Thor, he was flying off to figure out who was manipulating the Avengers at the end of Age of Ultron. Eventually, he hears rumblings of trouble in Asgard: His evil brother, Loki (Tom Hiddleston), has been impersonating their missing father, Odin (Anthony Hopkins). Loki’s rather lax governing leads to the reemergence of an imprisoned Hela (Cate Blanchett). Thor’s initial encounter with Hela gets him blasted to Sakaar, a barbaric planet ruled by the charming but nefarious Grandmaster (Jeff Goldblum). Valkyrie (Tessa Thompson), a tough, hard-drinking warrior hiding out on Sakaar brings the god to the Grandmaster. “Thor is a bit of a fanboy for the Valkyrie, the elite women warriors,” Hemsworth says. Thor is then forced into becoming a gladiator, which leads to his haircut and the loss of his trusty hammer.

So we’ll get the hair for a bit then it’s new look time. According to EW’s article Hemsworth was happy to not have to sit through the extra hair and makeup time but I know a lot of folks, myself included, who will miss the long hair.

EW’s cover (above) and the rest of the first-look photos feature Valkyrie (Tessa Thompson), Grandmaster (Jeff Goldblum), Hela (Cate Blanchett), Loki (Tom Hiddleston), and Bruce Banner (Mark Ruffalo).

For those with a Goldblum obsession (ME) this is killer. I won’t be getting it out of my head anytime soon.

      …so, they couldn’t get anybody to fund a Planet Hulk movie, but they got Hulk and Planet Hulk into a Thor movie?

      Hmmmmmm

      • That’s what I’ve been hearing as well, that we will see Hulk again when Thor fights him in the arena
