    Thor: Ragnarok's New Characters Explained

    The first trailer for Thor: Ragnarok is currently tearing up the Internet, giving us a bold new look at the Marvel Cosmic Universe and its inhabitants, thanks to director Taika Waititi (Hunt for the Wilderpeople).

    More so than most Marvel Cinematic Universe sequels (or threequels), Thor: Ragnarok has a bunch of new characters that it will introduce - many of whom would have a larger destiny to come in the MCU (as opposed to being one-offs).

    Here is Every New Character in the Thor Ragnarok trailer.

    thor-ragnarok-trailer-new-characters-989419.jpg

    Hela

    cate-blanchette-hela-thor-ragnarok-2-989395.png

    In Marvel Comics, Hela (Cate Blanchett) is the Asagardian goddess of Death, ruler of the underworld realms of Hel and Nifleheim.

    We don't know many concrete details about Hela's MCU adaptation, except that she (clearly) still has powers related to the underworld, and has, as Blanchett recently said, "been locked away for millennia getting more and more cross, and then, with a mistake, she gets unleashed and she ain’t getting back in that box.”

    Skurge

    thor-ragnarok-trailer-skurge-karl-urban-989405.jpg

    Karl Urban's Skurge is Hela's enforcer. We don't know much about the MCU version - such as whether he works for Hela voluntarily, or is (as in the comics) under thrall, with no will of his own (until he's inevitably freed). In any event, Skurge is a warrior from the Norse tradition of berserkers, and his prowess with an axe has earned him the nickname "The Executioner."

    In this scene from the trailer he's far less graceful, weilding to big machine guns (as they tend to do in cosmic battles, you know?).

    Valkyrie

    thor-valkyrie-238259.jpg

    After all the controversy surrounding this character and casting, it seems we'll get an interesting take on actress Tessa Thompson's version of Marvel Comics' Valkyrie, and the larger mythos she fits into.

    The Thor: Ragnarok trailer seemingly establishes a history in which the Valkyrior of Asgard (a squad of warrior goddesses on winged horses) rode into battle against Hela, and fell as a result. From what we can tell, Thompson's Valkyrie is presumably one of the last in the MCU, and is in service (coerced or otherwise) to Jeff Goldblum's Grandmaster.

    Nebula's Relationship With Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol 2. Main Villain Revealed

    When fans last saw Nebula in Guardians of the Galaxy, the character was not doing so great. Having chopped her hand off, Thanos’ adopted daughter was quick to flee the impending battle Ronan was stirring up. When fans meet up with the character in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, audiences will learn what all the character has been up to. And, apparently, it’s not been anything too pleasant.

    During a set visit, ComicBook.com had a chance to speak with Karen Gillan about her role and where Nebula finds herself in the sequel. It was there that the actress opened up about her character’s relationship to the movie’s main baddie, and she stressed its not a good one.

    Having been captured by the film’s antagonist, Nebula wants nothing more than to escape her captors oversight.

    “Well, that's her main objective throughout the entire film,” Gillan explained. “She obviously takes many paths to sort of get there in any way she can, but she is being held captive. So she's there against her will, which is just a funny dynamic, because she's like, ‘Oh for goodness sake.’

    Continuing, Gillan went on to explain why Nebula puts up with her containment for so long. “She doesn't really want to be there, but she does because she needs to sort out these things with her sister.”

    Of course, being held captive is a great way for the film’s creators to establish Nebula as a more sympathetic character. Over the past few months, Gillan has said the former antagonist would have a change of heart and show a different side of herself.

    “What I love about the second movie for Nebula in particular is that we get — We know that she’s a pretty angry woman with some daddy issues. [But] in the second movie, we’re going to start to see how much pain her father actually caused her, and we’re going to delve right into the relationship with her sister Gamora,” the actress told TheWrap in January.

    So, hopefully, the Guardians will create a plan to get Nebula free from her new captor. And, when they do, Gamora might want to make sure Drax doesn’t just slice and dice Nebula to bits.

    Set to the backdrop of ‘Awesome Mixtape #2,’ Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 continues the team’s adventures as they traverse the outer reaches of the cosmos. The Guardians must fight to keep their newfound family together as they unravel the mysteries of Peter Quill’s true parentage. Old foes become new allies and fan-favorite characters from the classic comics will come to our heroes’ aid as the Marvel cinematic universe continues to expand.

    Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is written and directed by James Gunn (Slither). The film marks the return of the original Guardians, including Chris Pratt (Jurassic World) as Peter Quill/Star-Lord; Zoe Saldana (Star Trek Into Darkness) as Gamora; Dave Bautista (Spectre) as Drax; Vin Diesel (Furious 7) as the voice of Groot; Bradley Cooper (American Sniper) as the voice of Rocket; Michael Rooker (Jumper) as Yondu; Karen Gillan (The Big Short) as Nebula; and Sean Gunn (Gilmore Girls) as Kraglin. New cast members include Pom Klementieff (Oldboy), Elizabeth Debicki (The Great Gatsby, Everest), Chris Sullivan (The Knick, The Drop) and Kurt Russell (The Hateful Eight, The Thing).

    James Gunn Wants To Do A Guardians Of The Galaxy Christmas Special

    If initial estimates hold true, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is going to be a cash cow -- to the tune of a $150M opening weekend. One thing that Hollywood is known for is milking everything from the latest franchise to moo.

    In that vein, taking the Guardians outside the silver screen and to the small screen could be a very real thing.

    When asked on Twitter about doing one-off specials featuring some of the most beloved cast in the Marvel franchise, director James Gunn said a holiday-themed event would be one that he welcomes.

    He added that it has not only been a good thought, but something that has actually been discussed with Kevin Feige -- the president of Marvel Studios. The exchange was simple, but encouraging for fans.





    As for the next installment of the franchise, ComicBook User Anticipation Rankings have set the bar very high with a 4.23-of-5 going into the final stretch before release.

    Set to the backdrop of ‘Awesome Mixtape #2,’ Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 continues the team’s adventures as they traverse the outer reaches of the cosmos. The Guardians must fight to keep their newfound family together as they unravel the mysteries of Peter Quill’s true parentage.

    Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 had its first press-screening on Monday night. And once the fourth and final post-credits scene concluded, members of the press quickly dug into their pockets, retrieved their phones, logged into their Twitter accounts, and tweeted their initial reactions. And as you might suspect, they are overwhelmingly positive.

    To be honest, I haven't seen one truly negative reaction. That doesn't mean all of them are warm and fuzzy, either. There are some people that are disappointed that it didn't live up to their expectations, and others just didn't find it to be as funny or entertaining as the first. But they are the minority.


    Our own Brandon Davis attended the screening, and I am pleased to report that he went in with very high expectations and still came away wanting to see more. "Damn. I loved Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. [director James Gunn] is a hero and surprise faces steal the show," BD posted in a series of positive tweets. "Going in with through-the-roof expectations, Guardians Vol. 2 still left me wishing it was never going to end. I seriously loved it. I'll be watching again at the premiere on Wednesday and I'm super stoked about that. This is one you're gonna comb for details and fun."

    To see more reactions from other members of the press check out our slideshow.

    Less-Than-Thrilled Reactions

    Jeff Sneider of The Tracking Board wrote: "Hate to be the Voice of Reason, but GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY VOL. 2 isn't as good as the first. What felt fresh now feels forced. 2.5/4 stars. The problem w/ GOTG2 is that the VFX threaten to swallow the film, which is way too long & too reliant on music cues. Too much family drama. G-team is too split up. Didn't care about Star-Lord & his Dad or Gamora & her sister. Leads not as fun as Rocket, Drax, Yondu or Baby Groot. Again, these films aren't really for me, & I think the target audience (the people who'd appreciate FOUR mid-credit scenes) will eat it up."

    One new addition to the cast earned Sneider's highest praise: "I will say that I loved @PomKlementieff as Mantis, a great addition to the sequel who had strong chemistry with Drax. More of her, please!"

    Kristian Harloff of Schmoes Know agreed with Sneider's reaction and used a gif of a young Harry Potter shrugging his shoulders to illustrate his joylessness with the sequel.

    Simon Thompson, Sneider's Meet The Movie Press co-host, wrote: "It was okay, I didn't love it. It lacks a lot of what made the original so tight. Drax and Groot are highlights."

    SLIDE 2/2
    Over-The-Moon Reactions

    Germain Lussier of Gizmodo found it delightful: "Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is filled with tons of surprises and an unexpected amount of emotion. Another Marvel winner."

    Peter Sciretta of /Film thinks it tickled the funny bone more the first. "Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is funnier than the original, a ton of surprises, and an unexpected emotional profoundness. I am Groot. Mantis and Drax steal the movie. The music on Awesome Mix 2 is great and has some deeper tracks than vol 1."


    Eric Eisenberg of Cinema Blend is elated with the sequel: "Had tons of fun with Guardians of the Galaxy 2. Incredibly funny, beautifully colorful, and great continuations of the heroes. Super happy!"

    It had Fandango's Erik Davis rocking and rolling: "There's more beauty & depth & '80s love in GUARDIANS VOL. 2 than any of the Marvel movies. It's like a water-color acid trip full of awesome."


    THR's Aaron Couch felt some good vibrations: "Don't think I've heard so much laughter at a press screening. People seemed to really be digging Guardians Vol. 2. Can't say more (yet)."

    The Wrap's El Mayimbe spread the good word: "My goodness what an experience! Absolutely loved it & you guys will too! Can't wait to see again!"


    Steven Weintraub of Collider was swept off his feet: "GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY 2 kept a smile on my face from beginning to end. Funny, action packed, emotional, and tons of surprises. Thumbs up."

    Mike Ryan of Uproxx felt the fun side of the force: "GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY VOL 2. is very fun. Takes the EMPIRE "split up your characters" strategy. Drax is a hoot. Baby Groot steals the show."
