We get a first look at Anthony Hopkins as Odin from a Thor: Ragnarok set image.
Director Taika Waititi posted the image to Instagram featuring himself and Chris Hemsworth kissing Anthony Hopkins on the cheek.
We also see that Anthony Hopkins’ Odin has a long beard and older clothing as reportedly Odin loses his memory and ends up on Earth as a hobo, while Loki is king of Asgard and loses to Hela.
The Doctor Strange post-credit scene alluded to Odin on Earth, and it’s also thought Benedict Cumberbatch and Doctor Strange will appear in Thor: Ragnarok.
By Odin’s Beard, it’s Mr NZ and Mr Aus sharing an Anzac kiss through a sweaty Anthony Hopkins filter. You guys think I just f— around all day hanging out with celebrities, but really I’m creating cultural ties and spiritual understanding between the different peoples of the world… through dumb photos. #Ragnarok #OdinSweat #HoppoSandwich #Anzacs #AtlantaHEAT #HannibalFilter
