Doctor Strange Shows Up In South Korean Poster For ‘Thor: Ragnarok’

Thor: RagnarokIt’s been confirmed for a while, but now we have visual proof of Doctor Strange’s appearance in Thor: Ragnarok — and it actually came in a pretty strange form, fittingly enough.

Americans aren’t the only people getting pumped to see Thor and Hulk duke it out on the big screen in a month. In a new South Korean poster for the film, which you can see below, the two Avengers (former Avengers?) can be seen wrestling as the rest of the cast watch.

Hela enjoying the fight alongside a broken Mjolnir can been seen in the top right, while an amused Grandmaster spectates next to a seemingly concerned Odin. Heimdall and Valkyrie are featured in the bottom right while Loki is busy making a living. Not to be forgotten though is Stephen Strange himself. This is the first image of The Sorcerer Supreme in any Thor: Ragnarok promo images and it certainly won’t be the last as marketing will be sure to ramp up in the coming weeks.

For those who aren’t South Korean historians and may think the poster is a bit odd, it actually borrows imagery from Kim Hong-do’s painting titled Sangbak. The art shows a group of men watching a wrestling match. Marvel obviously saw that as a clever opportunity.

How did Marvel do with the first promo image of Doctor Strange in Thor: Ragnarok? Was this what you were expecting? Sound off in the comments!

Directed by Taika Waititi, the film stars Chris Hemsworth, Tom Hiddleston, Cate Blanchett, Idris Elba, Jeff Goldblum, Tessa Thompson,  Karl Urban, Mark Ruffalo and Anthony Hopkins. You can read the synopsis below:

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 gladictorial contest that pits him against his former ally and fellow Avenger – the Incredible Hulk!

Thor: Ragnarok will be released in theaters on Nov. 3, 2017.

6 Superheroes Who Deserve Animated Shows

Superheroes Animated The Question Moon Knight She-HulkOne of the greatest tools in the craft of filmmaking is the often overlooked art of animation. Animation is a tool that can bring any drawable creation to life in vibrant ways without the limitations of a budget or having to find a way to pull something off in real life. Animation can be as far out and unhinged as it wants to be.

The art of the comic book is very similar to that of animation. Comics often show heroes doing things that could never happen in the real world. As much as live action can capture a lot of these moments, animation allows for much more freedom. Animated superhero shows have been popular for quite some time now, and some have even received critical acclaim for their depiction of comic book characters and honoring the source material.

With all this in mind, I decided to write about 6 heroes who deserve their own animated shows. Click Next to get started!
