Thor: Ragnarok seems far out, but soon our favorite Asgardian will be in theaters again. Entertainment Weekly recently tweeted and released photos, with notable differences in Thor and others.

From seeing "Doctor Strange," it's obvious Thor is going through changes. He is on earth searching for Odin with Loki. We also get to see a "Team Thor: Part 2" in "Thor: Ragnarok," with the Norse hero claiming Asgardian coins being enough to make rent.

In "Thor: Ragnarok," Hela, a villainous Asgardian Goddess, imprisons the Avenger on Sakaar to battle The Hulk.

Sakaar is the planet in the “Planet Hulk,” a comic book series where Hulk becomes king of a planet. The plot will likely tie "Planet Hulk" into the upcoming MCU film.

Thor's hairstyle is an obvious change. According to Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige, Thor’s new haircut isn’t unintentional. “I have a belief that if you’re lucky enough to get to part 3 of a franchise, it is your obligation not to fall to threequel-itis,” Feige told Comicbook.com.

Take a look at the haircut:

Thor also has the twin swords as opposed to Mjolnir—his signature lightning-fueled mallet. The God Of Thunder gets stuck on Sakaar, but that doesn’t quite explain why he doesn't have access to Mjolnir. There are several possible explanations for the missing hammer:

Is Thor Unworthy?

Jane Foster becomes Mjolnir’s new wielder, and the God of Thunder changes into Odinson: an Unworthy Traveler who wields the axe Jarnborn.

Unworthiness is one possibility for Mjolnir's disappearance. However, the picture shows him with twin swords instead of Jornborn. Maybe he didn’t lose Mjolnir; he could be against a foe powerful enough to keep Mjolnir away from him.

Marvel's final film of 2017

"Thor: Ragnarok" will be Marvel’s final film of the year.

MCU films have done successfully throughout summer and a late fall spot. The movie’s new changes should help Marvel end the year on a great note.
