Empire releases an image from its upcoming Thor: Ragnarok issue


Ahead of its upcoming issue, Empire Magazine has released a new image of Thor.

Thor: Ragnarok‘s first official trailer definitely took audiences on a grand ride. It was chock full of action, humor, and surprises. Yes, we saw Mjolnir get shattered, Asgard destroyed, and Hulk making an appearance after a long absence.

However, as much as those things delighted fans, the biggest buzz was our hero getting a haircut and the return of his helmet. Ever since Thor (2011), our hero has sported long hair. As for his famous headwear, it disappeared after only a few scenes from his inaugural movie.

Granted, the helmet probably went away because Chris Hemsworth became a much bigger star, and audiences want to see the faces of their favorite actors. However, fans of the comics want a very faithful adaptation of their superheroes.

Ahead of its upcoming issue, Empire has released a new close-up image of Thor. It may not show his new helmet, but it does give us a new look at his haircut. On top of that, it also shows some intricate details of the top half of his armor.
