Thor: Ragnarok takes inspiration from a number of places, including fan favorite Marvel Comics storylines like Planet Hulk and Ragnarok. That influence seems to have come from even more recent events, however, something a new comparison image brings to light.
• UNWORTHY THOR - COMIC COMPARISON • So we got the images of Thor Ragnarok that showed Thor with short hair. a lot of people seemed confused and thought it was a design change but it ain't, Thor's hair will get cut during the film but why ? Thor's trusted hammer Mjölnir and his long golden locks will be taken from him when he is forced to fight as a gladiator on Sakaar. But wait a minute, he is the one and only Thor and his hammer gets taken from him ? I think they are going for the Unworthy Thor route because how in the hell would someone just take Thor's hammer from him ??? what do you think is going on ??? let me know below ✌️ ———————————————————— #marvel #mcu #ironman #captainamerica #thor #hulk #blackwidow #hawkeye #spiderman #daredevil #hela #guardiansofthegalaxy #valkyrie #grandmaster #agentsofshield #thorragnarok #doctorstrange #marvelcinematicuniverse #accuratemcu #ragnarok #thor3 #avengers #sakaar #buckybarnes #loki ———————————————————— Feel free to repost but make sure to tag me and give me credit.✌️ ———————————————————— please follow my backup account: @mcu.accurate ‼️SUBSCRIBE TO MY YOUTUBE CHANNEL.

In the current comics, Thor no longer wields Mjolnir and is on the hunt for another hammer from the ultimate Marvel universe. A new comparison from Instagram user AccurateMCU shows both images side by side, and you can definitely tell there are similarities between the two. His hammer and hair are taken from him thanks to run as a gladiator in the arena of Sakaar, but he also mentions that there is no way that Mjolnir could just be taken away from a Thor without a good reason, which could lead to an Unworthy Thor-like storyline.
In Original Sin, Nick Fury whispered something to Thor which made him immediately drop the hammer, unable to pick it back up. Is something like that in store for Chris Hemsworth in Thor: Ragnarok? It could be a possibility.
Thor: Ragnarok currently enjoys a 4.17 out of 5 rating on ComicBook.com's anticipation rankings.
In Marvel Studios' Thor: Ragnarok, Thor is imprisoned on the other side of the universe without his mighty hammer and finds himself in a race against time to get back to Asgard to stop Ragnarok – the destruction of his homeworld and the end of Asgardian civilization – at the hands of an all-powerful new threat, the ruthless Hela. But first, he must survive a deadly gladiatorial contest that pits him against his former ally and fellow Avenger – the Incredible Hulk!
Thor: Ragnarok is directed by Taika Waititi with a screenplay by Eric Pearson. The film stars Chris Hemsworth as Thor and Tom Hiddleston reprising his role as Loki.
