Also, SuperBroMovies shared a new poster for the next MCU film that is on display at SDCC. The gorgeous new poster features most of the film’s key players in a beautifully colorful design that invokes the work of the late great comic artist Jack Kirby, whose classic Marvel Comics work has been a big influence on the overall look of this film.

Marvel’s Thor: Ragnarok opens in theaters on November 3, 2017.
5 Reasons We’re Excited For ‘Thor: Ragnarok’
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 hasn’t even been out a week, and we’re already looking forward to the next Marvel movies. Spider-Man: Homecoming is first up, but it doesn’t look quite as interesting as Thor: Ragnarok.
The trailer for the film is incredible. The vibe, the action, the set-design, the soundtrack, every element of the trailer screams, “This is a different kind of Thor movie.”
And that’s exactly what we need. Thor: The Dark World was the most easily forgettable Marvel sequel, only distinguishable from the original for its use of fan-favorite villain Loki. Thor: Ragnarok looks poised to switch up the formula, seeming more like a fun intergalactic romp than a brooding space epic.
Judging from the trailer and other positive buzz, there’s plenty of cause to be excited for Thor: Ragnarok. Here are the 5 reasons why.
